Yes, the storyline I have made this incarnation of the original story in a way that would allow for sudden changes in the roster or players completely screwing up my plans by doing the opposite of what I had thought they would do . My main motivator was a sense of fairness that in hindsight has no real base.
Since the majority of the players seem to be in agreement, apps are now reopened. New characters can enter New York once more. I may be able to go back and retrieve the data for the application standards, but it's rather late at my current location and I just wanted to reopen the game as soon as possible.
New characters can either:
A) Have been in New York since the beginning. Mention this in the bio if this is the case. New characters starting this way will have more comprehension of their powers than beginners, and may start with a few inventory items, but will start with only 60% stability.
B) Just have discovered their crystal. Mention this in the bio if this is the case. New characters starting this way will start with the full 100% stability, but will still be growing accustomed to their powers and are unlikely to have anything of interest in their inventory to begin with.
The maximum player limit is still at eight. If eight active players are reached again, then applications will be closed until new spots are open.
Hopefully this will improve the experience of the game for everyone.
Edit: Here's the proper information.
Name: Your name in-game. Can be your "true identity," or you Superhero persona.
Allegiance: Post either villain or hero here. CAN be neutral, but almost everyone will be hostile. If you act out of allegiance (I.E. Villains being nice repeatedly), others may begin to count you as part of the other allegiance.
Inventory: Post this in every post except applications. Here is where you can say what you've found in New York, such as clubs, guns (If you're lucky), and the sort. You cannot start with any weapons/gear (Besides costumes).
Crystal: Post the color of the crystal you touched here, and the size/general shape. This can/will effect you later on.
Power: Post the power you gained here. Note: If there are many powers, or one is too powerful, they may be nerfed. Your physical abilities depend on the size of the crystal, so don't post super-strength here. Powers, such as telekinesis, that include multiple elements are not allowed. However, if your telekinesis is merely mental abilities (Such as lifting and throwing things with your mind), that is allowed. Immortality and the sort is not allowed, nor is anything that makes you 100% invincible. Teleportation/flying will also be limited.
Strength Level: Leave this blank when you post applications. Its base value varies based on the size of your crystal. I will then post what your SL (Strength Level) is. The SL is measured on a scale of 1-10, with 3 being human strength (It IS possible to get weaker), and 10 being "Hulk." For every 25% stability you are away from 100%, raise your SL by 1 (It caps at 10). After applications, post your original base SL in parenthesis before your current SL always, in order to keep things a little tidy. (Example: "Dr. Gregory Hound." SL: (3) <current number>
Stability: This is how stable your powers are currently. Post 100% in applications. The lower your stability, the stronger your powers get, but they also get more chaotic, and consume you (More on this later).
Appearance: Only post this in your application, and your first post. I doubt that I need to explain what you put here. Please don't post more than 1 paragraph.
History: Only post this in your application, and your first post. Post your history before receiving the superpowers. Were you a good samaritan? Petty thief? Average guy? Post it here. Please don't write more than 3 paragraphs.
