There are a lot of precedents for cars... Not much larger than sedan though.

I anticipated multiple cars as alt modes.


Mine was turning out to be pretty similar though. I was modeling Bumblebee from the movies for his size and stats.



Windcharger has a magnetic array. Bumblebee is more of a scout fighter.

I'm thinking the Autobots follow archetypes similar to those of "standard heroes." They just happen to be frequently the same large size and can turn into cars.

BIO
Judas is one of the best cops of Gotham in the year 2052. He was to become a police commisioner if he were
to complete a high priority mission that required time travel. The mission was to deliver Scanner to Lennox
located in Diego Garcia in the year 2012, a mission Judas gladly accepted quickly. After receiving Scanner, Judas grabbed his coat, blaster, and
motorcycle and proceeded through time.

Upon his arrival, Judas could only remember the mission, and nothing else about his time. He asked Scanner
about what could have happened to his memory, but Scanner could not remember either. After a quick check
on his systems, Judas found that Scanner's memory banks were somewhat damaged. Judas could not figure
out what was happening to them. After giving up, Judas stored Scanner in his motorcycle and headed for
Diego Garcia and to Lennox.

Upon arrival, Judas was greeted with soldiers, who were pointing their assault rifles toward Judas. Judas was
startled at first, but quickly called for Lennox to meet him. The soldiers, still cautious, called for Lennox, who
eventually came out to meet Judas. After Lennox asked what he wanted, Judas gave Scanner to Lennox and
told him that he was from the future to deliver that Minicon to him. Lennox was skeptical, and Judas knew it
from the look on his face. "There had to be something that could prove to him that I am from the future," was
Judas's thought.

It was then that Judas began showing his blaster and motorcycle to Lennox. After seeing the advanced
technology that belonged to Judas, Lennox allowed Judas inside, but Lennox was still skeptic about Judas's
tale. Judas, meanwhile, was moving his motorcycle out of the way and then followed Lennox inside.

Inside, Scanner began relaying the coordinates to Lennox, who knew immediately that they were
coordinates for the Stargate. Lennox began a quick research into the location, finding that it was a planet
yet to be explored. After looking at it, Lennox could not figure out the location, so he sent the data to NEST,
NASA, and SHIELD for better analisys. Almost as quickly as it was sent out, the message finally got their
answer from none other than Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots. He said he was to leave immediately
himself to see this for himself.

It was a few days later when Optimus Prime arrived, and he quickly recognized Judas's motorcycle having
Cybertronian technology, something that could not be copied anywhere else. Optimus asked for the owner, and
Judas replied with what he could remember. Optimus then went inside to see Scanner, only to find that
Scanner's memory banks were damaged, something that Optimus had to see fixed by Ironhide. He then found
the coordinates, seeing that it lead to Cybertron. Optimus told Lennox his findings, and Lennox finally
believed Judas's tale from the future.

Optimus then wanted this to be investigated as soon as possible. So, without delay, Optimus contacted what
Autobots were available for the mission to Cybertron. A SHIELD agent undercover there heard this and
contacted Nick Fury as soon as they could and relayed the information. As for Judas, he asked Lennox to be
one of the men on this mission...

Sorry. I am sketchy when it comes to Stargate. I've only seen SG-1, parts of Atlantis, and some of Universe. THAT'S IT. So, sorry about that.

EDIT: Story is fixed. Does it need more detail?

I've seen all of Atlantis and Universe but none of the others. Given that we are going to another world and presumably not coming back, I think my knowledge of the series will be perfect, but I won't have a clue as to how things are run on earth.

Battalion

Vehicle shape is a small military helicopter similar to the M-H 6
The helicopter is a modified OH-6A aircraft designed by the Boeing Co. Known as a "Little Bird" among the U.S. military, the name masks the helicopter's substantial firepower. The MH-6 helicopter has been outfitted with a 30 millimeter M230 chain gun, two 7.62 millimeter M134 mini-guns, FIM-92 Stinger missiles, and AGM-114 Hellfire anti-tank guided missiles.

Thanks, that's the direction that I was starting to go in, either as an Experiment or an Accident. While most of the Allspark creations have been mindless destructive little beastiest, Salvage somehow has enough coherence to embrace the Autobot ethos.

If there is going to be an alt mode, I'm thinking of the odd little green (?) motorcycle/ gryrocopter from MASK.

At the moment, I just caught myself up to date on my other posting duties and I am a little wiped.

I am looking over the submissions and interest thus far, and I will try to post some comments/ feedback asap.

If I wasn't clear in my ramblings last night, several Autobots at the same relative size with cars as alt-modes do not bother me. I view it as several human characters that happen to have superpowers. The skills and powers will define each Autobot and I am looking at niche rather than "simple" robots.

Jolt = Energy controller, Ratchet = Medic, Iron Hide = Weapons Master... although slightly different in size, they are all vehicles...

You are headed to Cybertron.

Incidentally... two people pitched magic users and I sort of pulled the rug out from under them... If I assume for half a moment that you read the OP, that you know the flavor was robots and tech, I'm left with the question of... why a magic user?

That said, if you want to pitch your concepts (here or via PM) I am willing to read...

Or my electrical controller? I see her as a kind of medic for the cybertronians, along with being a literal back-up weapon/energy systems. Are you going to throw in some sort of device that will grant immunity life support/space environment for the trip?

@ Plan B

I have not checked the math yet, but I like the concept. Oddly, I initially saw her as a size changer...
I can definitely see her being recruited for her strength and her ties to SHIELD. There would be appeal there.
Any background for her yet? Where does she get her powers? Krpytonian DNA? Pym Particles?

@ kirinke

Distracting me with a good concept picture... :mrgreen:
Solid concept, fits well and is a likely candidate for recruitment by the forces bringing this group together. Good job on playing to game concept.
As with Plan B, I've not checked math but a few things jump at me:
1) Where did she get that level of Cybertronian Expertise? (Skills)
2) I don't get what you mean by the Features. It looks like a copy/ paste of the suggested features from the core rulebook... Are you suggesting that she has access to all of these options?
3) I don't see your personal nemesis complication coming up very often - just so you know...
4) Please explain the Presence. I'm seeing Tech Geek with as mush appeal as Wonder Woman :?:

Currently i'm thinking. Infiltrating AIM (all that alien tech), got caught, got experimented on. Shield burst in, accident happened, experiment goes wrong, super powers ensue.

Actually, the features were from the the tech/electrical pdf.

She's been bouncing from one alphabet agency to another, she spent some time with the autobots (after a failed attempt from the Decepticons to kidnap her), learning about their tech and generally acting as their back-up medic and weapons system and general ace in the hole when things go pear-shaped (an electrical controller tech genius would make an intelligent robot do the happy dance if they were allies :)). She's more or less on loan from them to Stargate Command right now.

As far as her presence goes, before she became a government asset, she was a street-kid turned super-hero, her high presence in addition to her high intelligence made it a cake-walk to run circles around the authority. (Deception, bluff, intimidation, persuasion, all tie into her being able to thwart a clever madman while running multipe cons on various government agencies and bad-guys).

If you want, I can add the features to her array.

As far as complications go, those are just the bare-bones, as the story progresses (if she's chosen), I'm sure to add more, unless you have any ideas?
