Indeed. I didn't want to create a mountain of text. I placed everyone that made sense to me, but I wanted to give those I couldn't fathom a place for the opportunity to show me.

No problem. Still waiting for one more to post, as well.

I should be getting there sometime today.

Bad habit of mine =- I check "my posts" as opposed to new posts so until I actually post IC it doesn't come up on my list.

Zen_Gypsy, since Advent Arcana has Magical Awareness and can Teleport through ley lines, I'll give him a free, one-use power effect. It makes sense for what is happening, so it's more plot device and playing with character concept than anything else (you'll have to actually purchase some Sense ability to use it in the future).

When you tap into the Earth's ley line forces, you feel the exact spot that the disturbance is coming from, as though it were a nexus from two ley lines that hadn't previously existed.

The way I envisioned it working was he steps into a Ley Line and is able to ride it to a destination that is close to where he desires to go. He does have Eldritch Awareness which I figured would allow him to sense a major Nexus in close proximity, an "On Ramp" if you will. Being educated in the Arcane Arts, and Ley Lines not fluctuating much over the ages, I figured he would know where the major ones are and how they end. Similar to how a person who commutes everyday doesn't necessarily sense the highway, as much as he is familiar with it and the direction it runs.

"Ahh, the Americana Arcana ley line runs east-west, bisecting the Egyptian Eldritch stream at Stone Henge, then we can travel south along that until it bisects with the India Karmic stream about 500 miles north of Madagascar, where we can exit the nexus and make our way to our destination."

I had assumed that is typically how he would plan his 'Ride the Ley Line' trips, though I supposed I could have clarified that a bit more in the IC post if I had thought of it last night. But looking at it now, as he isn't able to perceive his destination, I should probably purchase Accurate for the teleport.

That sound fine. What I was referring to is an awareness of all the key lines if the Earth just by stepping into one. A much extended version of your sense.

Spent the night in the emergency room. Nothing's permanently wrong with me, but I'm tuckered out. Going to delay posting until tomorrow.

UPDATE: I'm going to change the name of the OoC and the IC to "Omniverse: <Campaign Name>" in preparation for when my "More Than Human" game finishes up and I open a teen-heroes game in the Omniverse setting.

I'm going to make the changes tomorrow to give everyone the opportunity to spot this post (I look for the names of my game threads, and I'm sure all of you do, as well).

Zen_Gypsy, you can go all the way to the new nexus, if you want. Let me know and I'll update the IC.

I'm fine going right to the nexus at Madagascar, as far as long range teleport I have an idea. Maybe the base, or the ley line nexus it sits on, amplifies my ability to port to trouble spots, but when "In the field" I have to rely on more commonly known ley lines (with my expertise, I know a few north-south, east-west ones) but they might put me close to, but not right at the areas I want to travel to. Similar to a commuter knowing which highway and exit he wants and figuring it out from there.
