I’m going to try and get something together in the next four days.

Where would super strength and bullet proof land in the point buy scale? Character worked as a janitor at the university before a lab explosion changed his life. He’s still new to his powers, so as far as he knows he seems to be bullet proof and extremely strong. He’s disinclined to see how invulnerable he is by stepping in front of a bus or anything like that.

There are multiple ways to do that we can discuss that later, but it shouldn't be hard to work in.

IIRC, super strength is just a really large Strength score. I haven't made a character for the game in several decades though

That is certainly one of the ways, and likely the easiest for just super strength, but fighting and agility are important too.

So, I came up with an idea for a hero, Witness, that makes other heroes better. Basically if they see something happen, they can will a better (or worse) outcome to happen.

So then I looked at the rulebook and this sounds like Probability Manipulation, but the rules seem to specifically prohibit the power from affecting others (in a positive way).

Is this something that would work? I'm thinking that in addition to only working on others and only on things Witness sees that additional limitations could be that Witness takes damage (ala Firestarter) or the opposite luck affects Witness' next roll. Or something.

Is that workable?

Name. Tiberius Andragathía. He goes by Tom.
Alias. Dawnbreaker
Secret. Yes. Otherwise he would be very dead.
Description
Tiberius, or as he prefers to be known as, Tom, is a tall, chocolate eyed man, whose Mediterranean heritage shows in his olive skin. Handsome, but unaware of it. He's intelligent, having graduated with a masters in ancient history. Tom dtesses nicely but casually.
As Dawnbreaker he appears as a humanoid form of pure, ethereal white light. In flight, Dawnbreaker flies gracefully. Bolts of pure holy light zoom from his hands, burning evildoers.
Personality wise Tom is a nice, kind guy. This hides his deep and abiding hatred of his family, stemming from the death of his mother(second wife of the godfather), in an ambush intended for his father. He's seen the damage done by his family and disgusted by it. He particularly hates his twin sister Livia whom has embraced her role as a mafia princess.
He's conflicted about his trust fund, using most of it to set up a charitable foundation. So far he's resisted the family's attempts to use it as yet another laundering means.

Have you considered Precognition instead? It sounds like it has the description you're looking for.

Hmmm, let me think on it. I was looking for more of a buffing power, and precog(combat variant) seems a little cumbersome for pbp.

Thanks!

I actually used a picture of Dazzler for Jewel. It's hard to find any pictures of jewel-wearing, or jewel-encrusted super heroes without getting flooded with pictures of Thanos or Jessica Jones.

Added photo (to dismiss visions of Aang) and updated questions into the character write up. Just noting that complete is now completely completed.
And killing time until the decision is made.

Good idea so I did the same. Not sure of which color yet so put both in there. Also thought of a new power, being able to create two small rifts facing each other. He can move them together to touch which creates an implosion releasing a small burst of energy. Can use as a ranged attack, sort of like a placed grenade. Maybe something he develops as he grows in power.

Believe it or not, when you first put up your game post I wanted to join but didn't have a clue to what I wanted to play. Now with only two day's left, I have a concept but I don't know if it would work, mechanics-wise, or if I could even get an application in, in time

Concept: The Nerd.
A bullied teenager with no prospects. No real skills. And no real joy in his life other than his comic books.
Constantly beat on during school during his senior year and he notices the bully's punches do less and less damage. He still cowers as that's what he always did, but less bruising, and less bleeding.

Mechanics: Effectively he is Damage Reduction Man! He can take a beating and keep on cowering. Is there such a mechanic in the game for that?

I tried googling the rulebook but I'm not certain I found the correct one. It looked old

Anyway, thanks. And even if I don't manage to get a character app in, good luck with your game
