Biokinesis can affect both yourself and others, just like everything else in the abilities section of the Nova. You are welcome to limit it to yourself if you wish, but that is not how the ability is intended to be used.

Do they have to be teenagers in human years, or can they just be adolescents of a different race?
Also, if someone is a different race, do they have to use the Outsider playbook?
Lastly, if I use the Bull playbook, is it absolutely necessary for the character to have been created by an evil organization?

If any of the answers are no, that's fine, I just wanted to know so I could build something interesting.

Quick question to help me shape my interest. I had an application for a Masks game that I'd like to resurrect and tweak a little for this setting, but it had one change to the Delinquent playbook. Instead of being able to make psychic weapons, he could make psychic constructs that were specifically not weapons. Would you be OK with that change?

Hehehe, you know, the power loader from Aliens wasn't a weapon...

Posting interest.

I'm currently thinking of applying with either the Legacy or the Protégé. I've got an idea brewing for each so I'll see which one I want to bring out here.

Sorry to stifle some creativity here, but yes the character has to be a teenage hero in human years. No alien that is 1000 years old but a teen on their planet.

That being said, a hero can be an alien and not be an outsider, but it would have to be a super man type story of being raised on earth. Just saying I am an alien bull, for example, is messing with intended narrative. If being an alien is a big deal for your character from the get go, then it needs to be an outsider.

The bull can be made by an evil individual or evil organization, or a neutral organization for an evil purpose. That is about the extent of flexibility for that.

That doesn't really sound angsty enough for the delinquent, and considering how big a list of non-weapons could encompass, that almost sounds like a nova to me. I would have to say no. Sorry.

DelinquentSuperhero ID: Wish I could just name myself “The Finger” but I think some censor somewhere would scream bloody murder. So I’ll go with … Hidden Hand. HH for short (of course that also means His Highness, you may bow).

The Real Me: Carlos Danger (/sarcasm) Call me “Rafa”


Playbook: I am not a Delinquent! What kind of judgmental prick are you?

 



Theme Music: Picked previously and I like it. It makes me laugh and it fits with his style.

Goals: He wants to work with the heroes because too often they’re surprisingly stupid about it. Destroy the city in order to save it. GG heroes. It happens a lot because they play by the rules, insist on straight up fights, and don’t sneak worth a flying fig. He grew up around normal hurt by supers, and he brings that sensibility to this work. Besides, he can. Villains are annoying, and their plans need to be stopped.

Why: Masks the system has always intrigued me, but I’ve yet to get into the few games I’ve spotted here using it. Superheroes is a cool memo, and the whole coming of age vibe in the game should make for some fun. A Delinquent is pretty well set-up for moral dilemmas. For Rafa, does he do something illegal that will make stopping the baddy easier? Would he sacrifice a few innocents for it? Also, I’d like it if some problems could be resolved without city-smashing fights, as that’s Rafa’s whole schtick.

Ronaan Konuya, Crown Prince of the BeastmenHero Name: Hemene
"It means 'wolf' in another language. I read about it in a book once."


Playbook: Bull
"I was trained from a young age to be a great fighter. Where I come from, the strongest rule."


Description:
 

"I am Ronaan Konuya, prince to the beastmen. It is a pleasure to meet you!"


Goals: More than anything, Ronaan wants to be able to prove himself and return home to his parents, where he can become king and lead the beastmen to peace with humanity.
"Back home, there's just so much that isn't right... I intend to fix it."


Background:
 



Roleplaying Sample:
 



Why: I've always wanted to play a superhero. A proper superhero, not an antihero, not a murder-hobo, none of that. I aspire to create interesting stories more than anything, and that's really the main thing I aspire to. I want to enjoy exploring strange worlds and meeting the people in them, making a whole new story alongside others.

I'm interested and have an idea for either an outsider but more likely a doomed, but I don't have any experience with this system.

Ethan Stuart - AKA Ember
right-aligned image
Hero Name: Ember
Mild Mannered Alter Ego: Ethan Stuart
Playbook: The Nova
Abilities: Elemental Control (Fire)
Flares: Moat, Overcharge, Reality Storm, Worship

Ethan’s home life is rocky. His dad, a state senator, is physically and emotionally unavailable. And his mom is too preoccupied with his kid sister to have time to devote to him. And all of that might be okay if he were a gregarious extravert with a metric butt-ton of friends. But he’s not an extravert. No, Ethan has always been lumped in with the weird kids and the math geeks—but he never fit in with them, either. He was the sick kid.

In elementary school, Ethan was absent a lot. If he wasn’t doped up on medicine, he was hallucinating in the midst of 106°F fevers. And if his temperature wasn’t sky-rocketing, he was in a near-catatonic state due to a complex medicinal cocktail. It made being a normal kid difficult, to say the least. And that may have been tolerable if he didn’t see how unbelievably sad it made his parents.

He begged them for a sibling when he was 9 years old. Not because he wanted one, but because he wanted his parents to smile again. When Ethan was ten, his mom gave birth to little Eleanor, and, indeed, his parents smiled. But for Ethan, it was bittersweet moment. He tried not to let his mom and dad see how much he cried.

Those intense emotions changed something in him. The fevers became harder to manage, and for the next year no one could say for certain if Ethan was going to survive. But as he approached puberty the fevers started to manifest outside of his body. He could burn scraps of paper with his fingertips. Push his hand through open flame without feeling the burn. Bring the water in the tub to a boil just by sitting in it. Pushing the heat outside of his body made him feel much better, but soon Ethan realized that this intense power was more than just pain relief and party tricks.

Two summers ago, Ethan burned down his parent’s home. No one was hurt, but it was a terrifying experience that brought with it an incredible lesson. Control yourself, or hurt the people you love. Ethan has been working to control his powers ever since.

Description: Ethan keeps a rock-and-roll aesthetic, usually wearing dark jeans and hoodies, with comfortable sneakers. He’s trying to find a way to make all of his clothes flame-resistant, but he hasn’t really figured that out yet. As a result, his costume isn’t much of a costume. He hand-made a mask in metal-shop that he thinks is pretty BA, but even that shows signs of deterioration after a few rounds of total fire-immersion. Hopefully a smarter, craftier person can help him out with this.

Attitude: Ethan is an introvert. The quiet kid in the back of the class. But when he puts on his mask, something changes. He can hide in plain sight and be someone completely different. That’s pretty awesome. Sometimes, though, the power goes to his head and he makes some decisions that he definitely regrets.

Roleplaying Sample: Ember’s body slammed into the concrete. He felt the ground break beneath him. Or was that his rib? No, that was definitely his rib. ”Son of a—“ He slowly dragged himself to his feet, eyeing a tear in the knee of his knee jeans as he got off of the ground. ”My mom is going to be pissed, Ajax,” he said as he adjusted the sheetmetal mask on his face and brought his focus back onto the hulk of kid across the parking lot. Ember pushed himself into a sprint, closing the distance between himself and Ajax, ignoring the pain screaming at him from his torso. He used that pain, the rage and the frustration, and funneled it down into his fists. He felt the heat, the flame growing around his knuckles, enveloping the sleeves of his denim jacket, and he smiled. ”Let me give your mom to be pissed off about, too.”

Goals: Ethan has been the sick kid for most of his life. He finally feels better. He wants to go out and do things. He wants friends. He wants to experience life.

Why: Super heroes are awesome. And teenage dramas are entertaining. Teenage superheroes are bogged down by the same moral compass as their adult counterparts. I feel like the exist in shades of grey, and that’s ideal for telling compelling stories.

Hey there, I've got an idea for a Janus or protege. I'll have an application posted later today for you.

Cheers.
