    If we moved to Saturday, would that work better? For this week, it'll have to be Sunday but next week I could arrange it to move. Also Infidel, need to see a sheet before Thursday.

    Who wants to participate in IC this week? I'm thinking we'll either do a casino party or a profiling your characters for a comic book.

    That sounds awesome. Unfortunately, Blackwell doesn't get into gambling, so she'd probably sit out on that. :p

    I'm up for pretty much any night for the next month or so. Also, I'm down for IC. Smith's too much of a geek for party socializing, but he could probably figure the math odds on a few gambling games.

    Ok, so, I don't understand alternate powers. The book spends like 2 sentences on them, and says you have to pay the same costs for all the power choices. What's the benefit as opposed to just taking seperate powers where you can make some higher or lower if you want to, and can use multiple at once?

    Edit: Nevermind, got an answer.

    My local group got back gaming again finally, with me GMing some Star Wars saga ed. And we have to do that on Sundays for everyone.

    Sorry about that, but I can't let em down. :D Saturday would work out well for me, I've finished my move now too so I should have plenty of time to hammer out the character.

    That sucks, we'll have to see what we can do then. Thursday is a go, I'm going to see if I can get off of work a bit earlier then 9 EST. How late can people got until on Thursday? Remember, you get a PP if you attend on Thursday.

    IC is up. This takes place directly after everything gets wrapped up from last session and the new characters are introduced so everyone can take part. Copycat, Mr. Bang and Beat Cops can all particpate in the profile. Basically, it's a chance to expand the characters a bit more and to maybe develop some costumes or team uniforms. I'm going to give out three power points to the top three people who post both frequently and with quality.

    :^: to the whole symbol design, really awesome. Do you guys want to use that? I'll work in a few banners and other designs with it on illustrator if you want to use it. Next IC response going up today in about two hours.

    I know everyone has told me before but can I have everyone who is playing and who wants to play please post if they can make Saturdays or if they can make Sundays, which one they prefer and if they are attending Thursday. I really need a solid count to figure things out. Thanks!

    I don't think I can be counted on for Thursday due to a need to pack. I may poke my head in at some point if the opportunity arises.

    Sunday is the best option for me. If the sessions become Saturday sessions I don't know if I'll be able to play.

    This upcoming Saturday sucks for me since I'm working from 5:00 till 1:30 AM, but I can adjust my work schedule for later Saturdays.

    I prefer Sundays.

    I will be there on Thursday.

    Well, I do prefer Saturdays and we'd gain Infidel if we swapped over but I simply don't want to lose both Visiblehowl and DVG. We'll stay Sunday for now. Please, if you haven't chimed in and are playing, still do so I have a solid count of those attending thursday and in case my schedule changes.

    New IC going up now. If you haven't put your character on the wiki (www.pearlcity.pbwiki.com), please do so now. Password is hero.

    EDIT: I am working on a cool thing for you guys but I need a picture of one of your heroes. It MUST be on some kind of easily removed background or a very simple background. Like a character profile standing in front of white or something. It also must be drawn, no photos or CoX images. If someone wants to shoot that at me I can work on it tonight and maybe get it up for you dudes.

    Ok, I am trying to meet with my new boss, who gets in her office around 4:30 (AKST). I am suppose to work at my office until 6:00 (AKST) but I pretty much told them I'm not. I'm jumping out of this office at 4:30, biking over to my new bosses office and talking to her then I am biking home. I might be a tad late getting back to my place as it takes me twenty inutes to bike there and if I'm late talking to my new boss, we'll see what happens.

    Alright then, things got dumb for me. I suddenly became free for this Saturday, however, I cannot make it tonight since I was misinformed about when I was supposed to see family this evening. It was supposed to be 10pm but it turned out to end up being 9pm. Bleh.

    I will see you Saturday, but you'll have to do without me this evening. Sorry.

    Ok guys, we game in a little more then 12 hours. I hope everyone is ready! Not sure on how many of our new guys are making it, so it might be a pretty small session today.

    Remember, all of those that were at the Thursday session got a PP! In addition, I'm giving a powerpoint to everyone who posted in the IC this time around for a good IC session and cool team logo. You guys are really picking up the points, so we might tone down how many you are all getting for the IC threads ;).

    Thursday: Mal got Copycat healed by the Iron Men, and then got a bit sickened after finding out that they kill criminals and then ressurrect them as mecha zombies. War Smith and Schaude broke into an undercover cop/dealer's safe and got a bunch of notebooks.

    Sunday: The notebooks and some questioning seperately led Smith & Mal, and Roger to a seedy hotel. Just as they started asking about a thug related to the Glow Goons, 2 vans of Saints (another vigilante group), along with the duper Beat Cops, pulled up and started blowing up hotel rooms. Smilers and Glow Goons came out of everywhere, THERE WAS A FIREFIGHT, the Hounds showed up, and then I had to leave.

    I missed the gay porn. :(

    GM got tired of us trying to fight his huge toughness robot and deus ex machina'd you into one-shotting him.

    you were for a moment quite literally the god in the machine, huh?

    Yeaaaaa.

    I got so bored of my robot shrugging off attacks and combat had dragged on two hours past the time it was suppose to end that I just killed off the robot in a bout of boredom. I also realized that this robot had a +12 toughness, a Str 24 and a high defense vs. only two PL9 characters that are really built as fighters , one of which had rolled shittily the whole night. Essentially what happened is I accidenatlly hurled a PL8 super-robot instead of his weaker PL5/PL6 cousin that is suppose to be the ground troops at the superheroes. Hooray for opening wrong statbook.

    To cover for my fuckup, I gave Beat Cops, War Smith and Blackwell a hero point for struggling with the 'bot. Everyone who attended also got a powerpoint.

    I am also opening up several player slots. If anyone wants to join, please post in the thread and PM me a concept.
