Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting CLOSED

Yeah, the brickishness of the team was something I had to consider. Multiple characters were really strong, most around a similar level (the Doctor, Mustang, Galactica, Hercule, etc.), which made me think of both redundancy and stuff. But it can work, both in-story and out. Plus, nobody was REALLY ...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting CLOSED

Thanks for the opportunity! I will try not to let the game down. Now I just need to decide how Dr. Mercury feels about the rest of the team. I know she wants to synthesize Mustang's dad's super-serum...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 23rd

Doctor Mercury requires access to laboratories and money to fund her research, so... both?

And she will take California. She would take Hawaii too, but it's been spoken for.

It's enough for four sentai teams, if one of them doesn't have a Mysterious Sixth Ranger.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Jessica Jones! Chemistro! The Purple Man!)

Killgrave has an awesome name, but he's got nothing on DOOM. https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/911/WveSw9.jpg You know, I'm going to be the weirdo here and say I don't actually like this. These kinds of "Because I'm BATMAN" moments feel unearned and arbitrary to me. I don't have any affection ...

Re: "Too Many Bricks"

5. Support/Healer/Medic: Specialist role that focuses on helping teammates more than hurting the enemy. How this is done can vary tremendously, but commonly it involves healing allies, dispelling debuffs and so forth. D&D's Cleric and Bard; DC's Zatanna and Dove; Marvel's Dr. Strange. This is the m...

Oh, I thought you meant wait a few weeks before picking anybody at all. That might be for the best, then.

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 23rd

There's another option. There's a lot of enthusiasm for this game, so you could start with a fairly small group and add more players bit by bit until you hit your limit. You could even try that second game, if the first one seems easy enough to run.

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 23rd

TBH, even 10 PCs seems like an astronomical number to me, but I've never GMed a PbP in my life. It might might be best to just rip the band-aid off quickly and pick your team. We'll understand if we don't make the cut. Even when characters don't get into one game, they've been fully made for the nex...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 23rd

Actually, a character who was a symbiote that could be "worn" by different normal bystanders would be an interesting challenge. Although I'm not sure how you'd stat it up off the top of my head, and it would make for some intensely awkward conversations...

Dr.Mercury (RainOnTheSun) - (Mad scientist?) "I'm an artist, darling. Eccentricities are not just tolerated but expected." Great... if Edna from Incredibles was into genetic engineering rather than supersuit design. She can still make you a supersuit! It just might make you want to eat brains and k...
