Going to add a House Rule for Impervious and Skill Points after selection. I discovered both of them after starting this recruitment and want to use them both. Changes can be made to builds once they are confirmed for play.

Just about finished. I have seven submissions that I really like and that are complete. I may run with them all, but I'd prefer dropping one or two.

Going to consider and make a decision. It will be up within an hour or so.

Thanks for everyone who submitted here. The final cast is as follows. I haven't gone into a deep mechanical evaluation yet, and I'm not the best at it, to be honest. I'll get to them tonight, but if someone with more experience could lend an eye on the mechanical bits, I'd appreciate it. I'll be focusing on making sure everyone's niche is protected (if your niche is not what is listed below, please tell me and I'll adjust it - I'm going by the short descriptor of you

(See House Rules at the bottom of this post.)

Warren Wagner - Maya (EnigmaticOne): Mutant Illusionist

Jason Marsh - Voth (Hound): Powerhouse

James Mason - Advent Arcana (Zen_Gypsy): Mage Paragon

Hybrid (Walking Dad): Psionic shapeshifter

Xolotl (Evolución): God of fear and death

Kevin Knight (Needs a heroic name) (Bladewind): Teleporter/Spatial Controller

Quick note to the start of the game. You all know each other and are part of a team. Everyone vote on a name for the team and use the information in the opening post to come up with an event that brought them together, and why and how they continue operations (remember the fiction in the opening post, don't step on what's there). I'll help where needed, but I'd like this to be a team building exercise for you guys. It's your team and I'd like you to create it. I get to create the rest of the setting, and the setting is to enrich your creations, not the other way around.

House Rules
I discovered the following house rules after starting recruitment here and would like to use them. This will alter your builds, so make adjustments over the next few days.

:arrow: Impervious: Impervious is capped at Power Level and works as follows: If an effect is below your Impervious rank, reduce any degrees of failure by 1.

:arrow: Skill Points: Skill points can be reworked to a 3:1 skill point-to-power point ratio, except for combat skills, which remain 2:1.

Hmm... a name and an event. Here's a couple I'll throw out (names anyway):

The Minutemen
The Watchguard
The Super-Musketeers :D
Impeach the peach!

sweet.

Will retool the build to meet the established guidelines. For heroic names...

Flux
Influx
Portal
Conduit

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the invite Ryan!

We've got Magic, Psions, Mutants, and Aliens ... I kind of like the suggestions made ... but then started thinking of the variety of origins we represent ... so then I thought of ...

Nexus.

Probably overused, but it seemed appropriate. Barring that I am a big fan of single word names. Though maybe working up our collective team history might lead us to a name organically ...

Great! thanks for the opportunity.

I agree with Zen-Gypsy, but I prefer

"Conflux"

myself, although if this name hasn't any votes I'll move mine to Nexus.

Just for the record... I was actually responding to the fact that my character needs a heroic name. I wasn't voting for a team name... :mrgreen:

Maybe you guys should look at the OP and figure out an event that brought you together? Coming up with that could put a name in perspective.

As Zen_Gypsy proposed. :)

As a base of operations I suggested a campaign city as being "Paragon City" from the soon to be gone MMO, City of Heroes. Assuming that's still the direction we want to go, we could paraphrase even more, and go with the Rikti Invasion as a starting point for the characters to come together ... as an idea or starting point for our mutual origin.
