    The Foundation is pretty much out and out a villain group bent on no less than world domination and establishing a mutant overclass.

    SUNSET is an anarchist group. They don't just want to destroy the government, they want to destroy all government and allow the world to be ruled by survival of the fittest.

    The Temple of the Ram worships a power-mad Titan. Enough said.

    The Perfect Council isn't necessarily evil, but they aren't really good either. Eldritch, the man who created and commands the Council, is a capricious and unpredictable fellow, ostensibly allied with Ultimatum's regime but holding it in complete contempt. Eldritch's power is linked to the power of magic itself, so his agenda seems entirely based around building magical power in the world and, in effect, empowering himself. Self-centered, perhaps, but not necessarily sinister.

    Africa, especially South Africa, is ruled by warlords of varying power and technology. It's where you will find brutal cybernetic gladiators like Ayize Nkosi, and other nefarious tyrants who aren't much different than the sort of heavily armed gangs that ruled parts of Africa before the Anathema came.

    Paris and its suburbs have a serious problem with warlocks and alchemists who essentially rule the chaotic City of Light from their catacombs, their demonic servants and homonculi darting out from the shadows, locked in their own sectarian power struggles.

    All the while, groups like the Faceless, the Vitruvianists, or the Oyakoba Corporation sit back and bide their time, waiting for their chance to strike.

    Top it all off with places like Munich, Tokyo, or Santiago

    It's a scary world out there.

    We could be brothers! Over the course of the past year I've had 3 different characters with my D&D group, all drastically different in powers but all essentially me, and I'm about to bring back the first character, which is me if I was a D&D character.

    Bacunawa is me, except more Filipino. Because seriously, I was raised with my white mother and I didn't learn jack about my heritage.

    I was raised by my chinese mother learned fuck all about my heritage, too

    I actually don't know if I want to play Genesis or Diana Hardy more.

    Because while Genesis would be more fun and creative to play, Diana Hardy has so much potential in terms of the kinds of things I could do with her character, whether in a mission or "checking up" and "treating" supers.

    DH does take more work, though, so I'll probably end up sticking with Genesis.

    Jeez, after looking over the OP again, I really wanna know how Cobalt can be a "Thorn in Ultimatum's side" if he's just a normal dude.

    Does he know what his kryptonite is? Is that it?

  • RedeemerRedeemer Registered User

    Cobalt is pretty much this universe's Batman, so I don't doubt that he holds whatever it is necessary to beat Ultimatum

    They are a refuge for the undesirable.

    For the vigilantes who perhaps only want to defend a few blocks of their own neighborhood from reckless super-criminals.

    For superheroes who have left or been turned away from the Vanguard.

    For magic-users whom the Vanguard would rather have not exist.

    We are all bound by a desire to use our power and skill for the good of our fellow humans at every scale- including the small scale that the Vanguard, with their global concerns, sometimes misses. And because the Vanguard frowns upon the work we do, we ally to protect ourselves. We keep each other safe and free, so that we are all able to do our jobs as heroes.

    We have no rulers, no hierarchy, no capital city. We do not make policy and issue decrees. We protect the weak and uphold the law, as the feudal knights did in the lands under their control.

    The King of the world will not make us a part of his system, however, so we have no lord. Thus, we are knights- but Errant Knights.

    I actually nerfed your sonic powers a lot because I didn't want to "overpower" him (so I made it a shockwave instead of a sonic blast), but you can of course keep what functions you like.

    You should have included the next verse. "Superman, where are you now?" Etc, etc.

    No I liked that change, it makes more sense than regular "sonic" powers. I think I still want him to be around fifth level, so I'll keep the second major power set, but I'll rename everything and make it a bit weaker.

    You can request any number of edits or changes and I'll take care of it when it's your turn again.

    Oh, and as a sidenote: I will almost always flesh out powers before bios, even if you ask me for both, since bios are generally something YOU as a person will want to figure out for yourself, since it's your character.

    I will of course edit bios when asked, but usually that'll only happen if you asked me for JUST a bio. That way I get to more people more quickly.

    I don't really know how weaknesses work, but basically he's an older guy so while he's in good physical condition (using DKR batman as a model), he still gets tired faster than normal. Also more fragile. Since the change in polarity takes a lot of concentration, he can't keep zapping someone for long periods of time, but I don't know how to fit that in either.
