Hey Sir Swindle! After looking at your character, I realized that we both have biggish heads. Not positive what brain bulge does as an aberration, but I assumed it means you have a large head. Are you okay with that? I don't really mind changing my Big Head aberration to something else. I don't want to step on any toes.

Also I'm new to this site. How did you all set up your characters with links to your power descriptions?

Figured it didn't matter much mechanically where the extra brain matter was hanging from.

I figured you would have a mega-mind bulgey brain. I went with it is coming out of the back of my head like Star Wars Twi-lek head tails (lekku).

Head swelling is pretty common for Nova's with Mega-Mental Stats or High Node. So I doubt we are the only ones with similar Aberrations.

@Baldwin using {TT="power name"}description here{/TT} but with regular square brackets and not curly ones. If you want you can quote someone's post and you will be able to see what they used to make their sheet look how it does.

Also @kanly, I know you got 1 extra "Bruised" health from being big but where are you getting the second one from? Depending on what it is I might try and get it on Behemoth eventually.

It's from mega stamina
It would be from Mega stamina If I had level 2. My Bad, I will pull it ASAP.
Also, you can purchase extra health levels with Body modifications.

Okay, just wanted to double check

It appears most of us are good to go. I can still fit one more person, so I’m going to give the ad a few more days.

I’m the meanwhile, if you want, you can all determine if your characters know each other. And if so, how? Are you already a functioning cell?

Alternately, you could say that none of you know each other and that you are brought together for the first time during this game.

There is no reasonable option other than we all know each other.

As long as all the nova's are team players I think we can get away with some higher-up calling us all together for the first time for some special job, but I'm honestly good with whatever.

I completely disagree. There are many different ways that we can be connected or not to each other. Earlier there was talk of some of us being in a band, there could be familial relationships we could be doing favors for our mentors, the faction could just tell us something that needs to be done, we could all attend the same event, etc... Of course it could any combination there of, and be different for each and every player.
Interpersonal dynamics can be... complex.

I think there are alot of good role-playing opportunities that stem from starting out separate or only being acquaintances. Much like the first episode of many tv shows (Leverage comes to mind). Speaking of which, now that our characters have taken shape, we need a faction to be a part of. Originally I had suggested the Suits but maybe that isn't the best idea in the world. I'm completely open to suggestions.

Sure, Quetz and Gehemoth were in a band, Fabricator and the Prof were in a book club with Koko, Fab boned Quetz's sister that one time. Then we joined this cell did some stuff and we can start the game.

I don't like spending the first night of an in person game coming up with convoluted ways for a bunch of guys to get along. I certainly don't want to spend a month and a half doing it in a PBP.

I don't know, as far as I'm concerned, that's 90% of what RP is. Coming up with interesting and consistent answers to the questions that face our characters. What is more basic than "Why are we here?"

Do people still say "boned"? I thought that went out with Cindy Lauper and feathered hair.

Anyway, I'm all for not knowing each other to begin with.
