I'm leaning towards 11 with the possibility of a tradeoff option (PL/10/180, PL 11/165, PL 12/150)
It will honestly depend as I intend to hand out


I'd suggest PL 10 or 11, upper PL because this seems like a global scale game but still lower PL because this seems like an underdog-situation. Just my two cents.

I would vote for B. With my potential character idea being a rescued alien symbiote who was used by one of the many alien groups as battle armor, but treating it like a slave instead of a partner. The gene treatments might mean that my character cannot survive for long without it being present.

On the other hand, it was a willing partner of the alien, but is being forced to one degree or another into helping the humans, with it's personality being less then helpful but not quite hostile.

Maybe it's from a culture that views status in terms of how great it's chosen host becomes? Thus making it less then happy about being stuck with a species who're the equivalent of talking goldfish to the rest of the universe.

So, an alternate Reach Scarab program? Like the third Blue Beetle? Cool. I've played a Blue Beetle with a Reach Scarab before, and they are incredibly fun to play. Bladewind prolly remembers that one, from Bombaatu's Justice. League Legacies game...

I do indeed.... and it's given me more fodder...

Looking over the interest so far, I am starting to lean towards my own personal preference of B.
The Wolvie pitch can still potentially work too.

Still not ready to jump to cement the choice or jump to recruitment yet though...

If B it is: I have two ideas, both around the idea of Ork (Warhammer 40k) DNA being spliced with my guy. One would be a standard warrior thing. Second... Mekboy DNA, so instead he has the gadgeteer powerset, since he somehow makes his insane contraptions work. :D

You familiar at all with the comic series Horsenhero referenced? Strikeforce: Morituri? The Mekboy sounds like a viable player character substitute for Adept...

I put a link in your quote for me, referencing back to the Warhammer Wiki as I had to look up your pitch. ;)

I've heard of the series. And in fact, I will submit the Mekboy based idea. Because I have some lovely background writing ideas churning up.

By my count, B seems to have garned the most interest...

I will flip to full on recruitment tonight.

Enigmatic - was the "Anderson" name intentional? That happens to be Adept`s real name in Morituri...

Hmmm, looking over the strike force series, it might make more sense to choose a single power or power set.

Not just because it suits the feeling of the game, but because it keeps me from spreading myself too thin trying to be a Swiss Army knife hero.

What do you think about a droid reconstructed from alien technology?

I like option B. I will wait to see your setting info before deciding on a submission.

As it happens, no. :shock: Though I might as well go with it for the Shout Out quality. :)
