Infinite New Vindicators OOC (M&M 2e)

Post by Horsenhero » Fri Jul 07, 2017 12:09 am

INV is a game based on Michuru's "Oubliette" M&M setting. Instead of being on his primary Oubliette-137 Earth, this game takes place on Oubliette-720. While Oubliette-720 is nearly identical to the Earth of the main continuity, there are some differences.

~INV is based at the New Vindicators Academy of the Americas in Sao Paolo, Brazil. (In Oubliette-720 there are 4, not 3 NV schools).

~The campaign starts in the year 2018 (so several years in advance of the "137 canon" timeline).

~While the Fallen are still the source of Nephilim, they are not the only source of Neo-Sapiens. According to some sources, nearly a Legion (1,000) angels originally joined Lucifer's rebellion and the survivors ended up royalty in Hell. This being the case there are lines of Neo-Sapiens descended from Dukes such as Lucifuge Rocafale and Geryon. These NS's tend to bear a "Mark of Hell" (usually a splotchy birthmark) on their body. Their progenitors are usually Incubi/Succubi and thus there are no 1st generation Nephilim in these bloodlines.

~At least one Rakshasa survived the destruction of Atlantis and there are mysterious immortal sorcerers, known as Jotuns who are jealous rivals to the Aesir in existence (though no one is certain how many of these twisted, secretive creatures still exist).

The Campaign itself is: PL 8 120pp

The New Vindicators Academy of the Americas-

The NVAoA in Sao Paolo is the fourth school for speebs (SPB's- Super Powered Beings) sponsored by the United Nations. The three sister schools are:

The New Vindicators Academy of America (New York City)
The New Vindicators Academy of Europe (Vienna)
The New Vindicators Academy of Asia (Tokyo)

Originally there were only three schools, but on-going public relations issues and violence against the New York Academy led the UN General Assembly to approve funding a fourth school. Serving the western hemisphere, the academy, much like it's sister school in NYC has students who hail from every UN member state in the Americas and island nations (such as Cuba). The official language of the school is English, though many of its students and all of the staff speak Portugese due to their location. A plurality also speak Spanish.

The Campus: Size: Huge, Toughness 20, Features: Chapel, Classrooms, Combat Simulator, Communications, Computer, Fire Prevention System, Garage, Gym, Hangar, Holding Cells (Psych Ward), Infirmary, Laboratory, Library, Living Space 7, Pool, Power System, Security System, Workshop cost: 30ep

Transportation: The school has available 2 helicopters, 2 limousines, 2 town cars, 1 SUV and 1 APC for law-enforcement support operations total cost: 96ep

School Uniforms: Not every student at the New Vindicators Academy has a desire to join the Vindicators after graduation. Most attend the school simply to go where they feel relatively normal or at least understood. Others attend so they can learn to control their burgeoning powers as well as receive a UN sponsored education. Regardless of the reason, there have been problems in the past where students who had no business getting involved in combat, did so. For this reason the school has modified the school uniforms so that a students' grade (and thus presumed level of training) is immediately discernible to those familiar with the academy...assuming any student dusplaying powers is wearing their uniform while doing so.

Freshmen: White bodysuit with a black "V" on the chest. Also includes black boots and black gloves.

Sophmores: Royal Blue bosysuit with a black "V" on the chest, black boots and gloves.

Juniors: Dark Purple bodysuit with a white "V" on the chest. Black boots and gloves.

Seniors: The senior uniform is identical to an official Vindicators uniform, being solid black with a white "V" on the chest. Black boots and gloves.

All students are allowed to modify their uniforms to suit their personal style preference with the exception of altering the hue of the bodysuit.

Protective Uniforms: For those students that need it, the class uniforms are available in an armored design. The basic protective uniform is: Protection 3 (subtle), commlink (5ep)

Okay...players can post current versions of their PC's (Shock, EngimaticOne & Arkrite remember the 3pp from the Armada chapter).

I'm looking forward to getting reacquainted with the trio of returning characters and newly acquainted with the new additions.

Before the 3pp, Prehistoric was at 122pp. Do you want us to start at just the 120+3?

Cooker (Power Level 8)

Real Name: Francis Gold
Height/Weight: 5'4/ 159 lbs
Hair/Eyes: Pale Blond/Green
Place of Birth: Jacksonville, Florida (January 13th, 2002)

Physical Description: On the shorter side for a teenager, Francis keeps his pale blond hair cropped quite short as a matter of habit. No facial hair is present, accentuating the image of a scrawnier teen without physical prowess. His average weight but no developed muscle tone doesn't help.

Francis dresses casual, usually on the lighter side of colors and shades since he lives in Florida and its tropical weather.

Biography: Francis Gold had a relatively uneventful childhood growing up in Florida, though his body's slow adjustment to puberty brought in the looming threat of being a target for bullies and social ridicule. Luckily, it did not happen for some time.

Then, it manifest as a pack of other boys on the side of the football field. Two were on the team. All were tougher and stronger. Francis was taking blow by blow, until the anger, restrained by helplessness, erupted... and so did his tormentors' flesh in third-degree burns.

After the authorities got involved and took a look, it became clear that Francis was an Esper, one with a highly developed mental capacity to manipulate microwaves and radiowaves. The fact that he could use it as a weapon concerned the police (regardless of the self-defense in this case), and his parents enough to ensure he was dispatched to a New Vindicators Academy immediately.

Abilities: Strength 8 (-1), Dexterity 10 (+0), Constitution 12 (+1), Intelligence 12 (+1), Wisdom 12 (+1), Charisma 12 (+1)

Skills: Bluff 4 (+5), Concentration 8 (+9), Diplomacy 5 (+6), Gather Information 4 (+5), Knowledge: Popular Culture 5 (+6), Languages 2 (Native: English, Spanish, Portuguese), Notice 6 (+7), Sense Motive 5 (+6), Stealth 5 (+5)

Feats: All-Out Attack, Attack Specialization 3 (Microwave Powers), Beginner's Luck, Power Attack

Powers:
Microkinesis
Living Radio Station: Super-Senses 2 (Accurate Acute Radio); Radio Communication 8 (2,000 miles; Area, Selective, Subtle 2)
Microwave Force Field: Impervious Force Field 9

Microwave Beam: Blast 10
- Microwave Unleashed: Line Area Damage 8
- Microwave Burn: Nauseate 6 (Ranged +1)
- Microwave Surge: Nullify - Electrical Equipment 10 (All effects at once)

Combat:
Initiative +0
Attack +0
Microwave Beam +6 (DC 25)
Defense 16 (Flat-footed 13)

Saves: Fortitude +8, Reflex +8, Toughness +10 (Impervious 9), Will +10

[Abilities 6 + Skills 11 + Feats 6 + Powers 69 + Combat 12 + Saves 24 = 128 ()]

Complications
Motivation - Responsibility: Francis disliked his bullies, but he didn't want to harm them with his powers that way. Learning restraint and better use of his powers has become a priority.
Prejudice: As an SPB.
Power Loss: Francis' brain has a highly developed magnetic field far beyond the human norm and interacts with its radiation generated in a complex fashion - one that if somehow interfered with, prevents Francis from accessing his powers. The right use of magnetic, radiation or other appropriate powers can do this.
Relationship: Francis is trying a relationship with Louisa Garcia, aka Vantage.

David Gordon is the son of a pair of American scientists. His father is a paleontologist and his mother is an archeologist. He grew up traveling more often than not and rarely had a place he could call home for more than a few weeks. The time not spent at digs involved visiting universities seeking funding and sharing findings. When he was 10, David manifested his ability to transform into a human sized dinosaur as a result of a desire for more attention from his parents. It was just after that even that he found out his father had the ability to acquire the traits of various lizards. They theorize that David may work his way up to the same versatility in time. Due to their frequent travels, they've never been found out and have avoided the persecution that has run rampant in the United States. Now that he's of the proper age, David has been sent to the New Vindicators Academy of the Americas to benefit from a more stable learning environment and the opportunity to learn more about his Neo-Sapien abilities.

Unbeknownst to him, David's parents' fossil seeking is actually a cover for a different sort of artifact hunting. They belong to an organization that despises Nephilim and are searching for ancient documents and other items that might help them in their battle against the abominations. They intend for David to be an unwitting source of information on more contemporary Nehpilim activities.

David is a slim, tanned boy of 15 years coming to the school for the first time. He's shy and bookish but not the typical sheltered type. He's well-traveled and comfortable in the most austere surroundings. In fact, he'd be more at ease in the middle of a jungle or on a deserted island than in the school dorm.

LLUVIA
(Power Level 8)
Real Name: Gaspar Zorrilla e Higueras
Height / Weight: 6’0” / 160 lbs.
Hair / Eyes: Brown / Blue
Place of Birth: Almeria, Spain (August 28, 1992)
First Appearance: New Vindicators Academy of Europe #1

Physical Description: Gaspar has a shaggy mop of hair that he typically just runs his hands through. He does not typically like to wear shoes—often preferring to wear flip-flops or go barefooted when able. Though his uniform is sleeveless, this is usually hidden by the black trench coat he wears.

Biography: Boasting one of the sunniest, warmest, and driest climates in Europe, Almeria’s arid landscape once lured numerous spaghetti westerns to its shores.

That changed the day Gaspar Zorrilla e Higueras’ parents died in a car accident; suddenly sullen, his Neo-Sapien power to summon rain clouds manifested and for weeks, Almeria’s skies were darkened and her lands were drenched.

It wasn’t until a representative of the New Vindicators Academy of Europe came to investigate the phenomena that Alemia was spared. Gaspar was taken to Vienna and the rain proceeded to follow him. Over the course of his freshman year, the rain slowly began to subside—all thanks to one of his classmates: Tatjana Nelson (Fach).

Romance blossomed between the two young people and as their first year at the school came to a close, Tatjana’s parents arranged for the orphan to stay with during the summer. Partway through, however, they took in borders: Tatjana’s paternal uncle and daughter, Sarah. Sarah, angry at her lot in life, used her abilities to incapacitate Gaspar and allowed the girl to stage a compromising situation for Tatjana to catch the two in. Not yet aware of Sarah’s abilities, Tatjana refused to accept Gaspar’s side of the story and he was taken to the Netherlands, where he spent the rest of his summer vacation with another classmate, Cornelis Noteboom.

When their sophomore year began, Gaspar attempted to reconcile with Tatjana, but she refused to hear of it—even after the revelation that her cousin was also a Neo-Sapien capable of the things Gaspar had accused her of. While he pined for her, Tatjana began a relationship with a new student, Martin Curie (Fluxx).

As the semester dragged on, Gaspar watched as Tatjana was dealt blow after blow: though it was believed her father was just a puppet of Laputa, it was uncovered after her mother’s murder that he was, in fact, a full-fledged member of the terrorist organization. Further complicating things, Tatjana was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Through it all, Gaspar yearned to comfort her, but knew she would not accept his sympathy.

It was during the final battle with Laputa that Gaspar ceased to simply watch over Tatjana. When her life was threatened by Lioness, the Spaniard took action and rained lightning down on the woman, ending her life and saving his ex-girlfriend’s. The woman was the mother of a classmate, however, and unable to live with what he had done, Gaspar left the school.

Months later, two classmates—Jack Rexroth (Greystone) and Harry Percy (the Blue Knight)—tracked Gaspar to Germany. Gaspar’s abilities had always been tied to his emotions, but ever since taking a life, they had been even more erratic. In an effort to stop himself, Gaspar attempted to take his own life—an act Jack and Harry were keen to halt. They restrained him and took him back to the New Vindicators Academy of Europe, just as the Drifter was arriving for the first time.

Along with Kasamir Flaegler (Magnitude) and Astrid Tiel (Verve), Gaspar, Jack, and Harry found themselves taken to a world where nobility bred Neo-Sapien bloodlines into their families. Together, the New Vindicators prevented a world war from erupting, but not before Gaspar found a moment of clarity. With a renewed purpose and better control over his abilities, Gaspar returned to his home dimension.

Shortly thereafter, he took part in a campaign to save the city from the threat of several mercenaries hired by Siegfried. Gaspar found himself on a team with Lexus Rauf, the youth whose mother Gaspar had slain. Gaspar confessed to Lexus what he had done and Lexus responded by attacking the teen, nearly jeopardizing their operation.

After Siegfried’s plot was thwarted, Gaspar joined several other students in confronting the power thief, Durendal. For their part, the French government pressured the school to expel the six students. Instead, Newton transferred them to the New Vindicators Academy of Asia, in Tokyo.

Here, Gaspar became suspicious of a classmate—Xun Wang (Diyu)—whose doppelganger he had battled in the alternate dimension. Ultimately, his suspicions proved unfounded.

As the semester came to a close, Newton was able to work out an agreement that allowed the expelled students to return to the Vienna school. As they did so, a group of interdimensional criminals known as the Armada arrived in the skies over Vienna. As Gaspar joined his classmates in repelling the invasion, other dimensions became entwined with theirs. As a plan of attack was formed, Gaspar found himself joining a strike force containing Tatjana, Martin, and three new faces: Francis Gold (Cooker), Brad Blackwell (Ion), and Graf Oscar—another criminal from the first dimension Gaspar had visited.

Upon their arrival, Gaspar encountered Zehirli, Lexus’ father and Lioness’ mother. Zehirli knew how his wife’s life had ended and lunged at Gaspar. The two were sealed in a ship that was jettisoned for the surface. They crash landed and continued their fight. Once more, Gaspar was forced to take a life before succumbing to the paralysis effect of Zehirli’s toxic quills.

After he regained consciousness, Gaspar learned that he had not crashed on his own dimension, but one of the others the Armada had joined. With the combined New Vindicators victorious, the connection was severed, leaving Gaspar stranded on an alien world with no way back to his home dimension.

Michuru wrote:Okay, so... I tweeked the original build a bit to better reflect who Gaspar is. I dropped his mental stats to base because, let's face it, I have never played him to be a brain. Likewise, I nixed his ranks in Knowledge (tactics), because when has Gaspar ever shown a knack for stratagem?

Powerwise, I bought off his Uncontrolled flaw. Gaspar's got better control and he's learning more about what he can do (the added air effects). I don't ever want to let him fully manipulate the wind ala Storm because it's never been thematic for him. He literally just manipulates the weather. He doesn't get fancy with air currents lifting him up or anything like that. I have plans to maybe expand him into snow and ice (a bludgeoning area blast) and such. I've deliberately kept him under budget for this. With his powers dynamic (so that he can be throwing damaging effects while maintaining an area condition), it'll cost him 2pp per new power, so... I might need the buffer. Before I buy anything, I'd like to have him using stuff through extra effort first.

Well, Lluvia wouldn't be the first character to come into this below points. I believe both Prehistoric and Key started without all points being spent.

All hail the underachievers ;~)

On a rough business trip, sick as a dog and I've got a solid twelve hour day tomorrow... and I'm not sure if any of that includes the seven hours or eight hours of driving.
But once I get home I'll dust off Merle and get his sheet up.

That all sounds...unpleasant. Hang tough sir.

Now, one big difference between this school and Vienna is there really aren't many flat out useless powers among the cast. I figure at this point, whether the SPB's realize it or not, the powers from which they descend are starting to trim away those bloodlines that have nothing to offer future schemes. The primary Fallen might be busy elsewhere, but at least one of the cast has met an agent of Lucifuge Rocafale, the "Prime Minister" of Hell.

That being said, with some rare exceptions (a Were-Scorpion is pretty expensive as it turns out), the PC's way outperform the NPC's on sheer points alone. Some of the NPC students can hang well enough to lend a hand when needed though. Their saves are kind of low as a general rule, but even discounting Rebecca, Louisa, Rafael, Desiree', Eva, Arturo, Kendra, Jesus, Juan, Alyssa and a couple others can back the PC's up.

I'm guessing that's either the Zoo, or that mage lady.

The Zoo is actually a Rakshasa named Dakshesh (somebody learned this, so I'm not going to try to hide it again) and has his own agenda.
