Infinite New Vindicators [2e] (OOC-full)

Postby Horsenhero » Mon Mar 10, 2014 4:09 pm

Hi there Oubliette fans! I've got a pbp that will be ending soon, because it's been a disappointment to me from pretty much the beginning. Since I can't seem to get through life without having 3 games on the table (colloquially speaking), I've received permission from michuru81 to run a game based on his house setting.

It will be important people check out the Oubliette setting on the settings thread to understand the basics, though I will answer questions as necessary. Also a passing familiarity with the New Vindicators fictions in story hour wouldn't hurt.

Note: there will be some divergences between this game and the base setting as it is placed in Oubliette-720, the home of my Infinite New Vindicators stories as opposed to Oubliette-137, the primary NV Universe.

This game would foolow the exploits of cadets at the New Vindicators Academy of the Americas in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Students should be Freshmen or Sophmores (15 or 16 years old usually).

The game will be 2nd Edition (Oubliette is a 2e setting) PL8 120pp

I will be looking for 4-6 pc's and I would want the players to be active (1 time a day posting minimum). If you can't manage that, it's probably not a good idea to app the game...though I will make exceptions for exceptional players.

Familiarize yourself with the setting or the following will make no sense: I will cast a maximum of 1 Nephilim and/or 1 Aesir. Any number of Neo-Sapiens or Espers can be in the cast.

This is a super-powered teen school setting, but it is markedly different from almost any other out there, so reading the Oubliette setting is critical.

So...now that I've done my best to scare you off, is there any interest?

The Cast-

Taheka/Tamati Stevens by Gilliam
El Campeador/Miguel Young by Arthur Eld
Cooker/Francis Gold by EnigmaticOne
Prehistoric/David Gordon by Shock
Telekinetic Force/Jason Anderson by Nareik123
/Merle Tremblay by Arkrite

House Rules & Setting Divergences-This segment is a work in progress, so there may be house rules added as time goes on.

House Rules-

-Language Skills: This game will use the graded language skill option from pg35 of the Mastermind's Manual.

-Feats: Feats are restricted to those offered in the Core Rules and Mastermind's Manual, with the exception of Opportunity Feats, which are not available.

-Reputation: The Reputation option from pgs86-87 of the Mastermind's Manual will be used (though I will apply modifiers to the checks as I feel appropriate).

-Skills: The Research skill from pg.29 of the Mastermind's Manual is available, with the following change. Characters are not prevented from taking 20 on the appropriate Knowledge Skill if they have it. Also, the Multitasking & Skill Synergy rules Mastermind's Manual pgs31-32 will be used.


Divergences-

Heroic Lineages-

De La Vega: (current) Rodrigo (Scyfy), Letitia, Angela, Rogerio. (past) Desmodena, Ramona, Lucrezia, Antonio, Rodrigo, Manuel. (Powers) The De La Vega family possesses the power to slide up and down a fictitious evolutionary scale. In their most advanced forms, they are disembodied beings of mental energy, in their least, huge Sasquatch-like primates. Most members of the family can assume at least two forms. The De La Vegas are from Chile.

New Vindicators Academy Sao Paolo: School information, Staff and Students-

The Academy:

The New Vindicators Academy of the Americas, 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 the ongoing problems with public relations and violence at the New York Academy led the UN General Assembly to vote for funding a fourth school. Serving the western hemisphere, the academy, much like its sister school in NYC has students who hail from every UN member state in the Americas and western leaning island nations (like Samoa). The official language of the school is english, though many of it's students and staff also speak portugese due to their location, and of course their native tongue if they are from a non-english speaking country.

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 limosines, 2 town cars (full-size cars), 1 SUV and 1 APC for the rare law enforcement support operation. total cost: 96ep


School Uniforms: Not every student at the New Vindicators Academy has a desire to join the Vindicators after graduation. Some 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 training level) is immediately discernible to those familiar with the academy...assuming the student displaying their powers is doing so, in uniform.

Freshmen: White bodysuit with a black "V" on the chest. Also includes black boots and black gloves as concessions to laundering difficulties.

Sophmores:The sophmore uniform is a royal blue bodysuit with a black "V" on the chest, black boots and gloves.

Juniors: The junior uniform is a charcoal gray in color with a white "V" on the chest. Boots and gloves are black.

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

All students are allowed to modify their uniforms to their personal preferences, except for color scheme.
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).

I'm definitely interested. Inclination to play a Nephilim or Aesir is low.

This seems like a pretty cool idea. I'm definitely interested, not quite sure of a power set yet.

Now the hard questions... Vain and arrogant, or nervous and eager to please?

Or arrogant and nervous. He's arrogant, but has irritable bowel syndrome which can sometimes interrupt his Dr. Doom jr. posturing. :P
