Yossi is ready, I asked him about it the other day.

We're good to go whenever, do we want more people or are we good?

I'm thinking Oldenburg maybe. My guy is of heavily English descent.

Why not today?

Yossi, we'll start as soon as you post  :)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

And it has begun. I went partially with Barndon's sugestion, but instead of Oldenburg, I went for another northern Lower Saxony location that was still nearby.

It's supposed to be the Dark Ages. Don't worry about minor biographical discrepancies, they can be cleared up or ignored.

Also good character so far, can't wait to see the rest!


Magic is simple, if your character has a power you can just say "With a flourish a ball of fire flew out of Bernardo's hands." and that will suffice. As for the kinds of magic, for this period in time they are categorized according to this chart.

I like the additions you've made, Slarti! Looks good!

Also I forgot to mention, you can also have your character's powers be based on nothing at all. Magic was introduced to give us more of a logical way of explaining feats, but you can make a standard superhero if you want. In the Superpower RP they're known as Meta-Humans.

I was wondering about that.  Currently, in my mind, he's about 40% mutant, 10% magical accident, and 50% old-fashioned bad ass.

Sounds good!

Don't feel obligated to explain every little detail about how he gets his powers and whatnot, sometimes it's best left unsaid.

Yeah.  I'm definitely trying not to over do it, but I want him well fleshed out in my mind.
I do have a pretty good "how I found out I'm super powered" story ready.  I'm just making sure I've got the set up clear and then all the time afterwards can be hand waved pretty easily to the present.

Sorry about my inactivity. Couldn't be helped.

Will start posting again properly tonight.

Don't worry, it was a holiday (That everyone celebrates) so there is a bit of a grace period.
