    If the smilie isn't relevant to the character, I'll be disappointed.

    Very happy to help in any way I can, Teal. I actually will have some time to do so, too, over the next few weeks.

    My suggestion is go for a character that you want to play, rather than whatever best fits the party needs. If you're struggling for ideas, decide what kinds of powers you want to have, and how you'll approach combat, and build around that.


    So, some questions and some of the possible answers:

    How does the PC move? - Fly/ run super fast/ super leaps/ climb walls / normal

    How do they protect themselves? - armor / very hard to hit / hard to damage / shield / force field

    How do they fight? - melee / use a gun / blast enemies from range with a power / use a weapon / use traps, deception, paralysis etc

    What physical attributes do they have? - normal / super strong / super smart / super agile

    What skills and abilities do they have? - none special / genius inventor / good at driving / sneaky / know everyone / great at spotting things

    What unusual powers do they have? - none / invisible / can go through walls / super senses / made of metal / can control fire




    Another approach is to think of the PC background - how did they become a hero? - and build powers that make sense for that background. Eg would be Spiderman - bitten by a spider, has spider abilities.

    Also you can pick a hero that you like, and build a version of that. 'I love Rogue from the X-Men' - build your version of Rogue, with your own flavor.

    I made a walking gun because it seemed like a simpler way to go.

    Someone with super-speed could be good.

    Magic is a little bit complex for someone who's never used the system before. Maybe I should build a magic character if ever I find the time to join.

    Well, a more magically-inclined character wouldn't be a bad idea. That way if someone drops an EMP the party isn't ENTIRELY up the creek (otherwise, they're relying on Crusher to do all the work. )

    I'll need help when I get into the mechanics but at this point I'm still lost on the possibilities - and that's because I haven't had time to really read the section I need to. I have to have an idea of what the game allows to get a grasp of the character I'm building - it that makes sense to anyone.

    You knew I was weird...

    Nice of you to spark up the pun content here.

    Anyone need any help making a character?

    I could rough up a possible build if someone has some concepts that they're working on....

    Orange or tan (or some suitable earthy colour).

    By the way, folks... I'm going to need for each of you to provide me with what color you want your Hero's Token to be when it comes to the map.
