Finally finished rewriting the basics of everything. You're in now as well, kkutwar.

Just popped in to say that I haven't forgotten the game. I was hoping to find the time to write the update last week, but unfortunately I found one of the most concentrated bombardments of homework I've ever seen awaiting me this week. I should manage to get it out later.

Sorry for not posting sooner, for some reason I thought I already posted. Anyways, just a little thing but since Hal doesn't even realize stability is a thing due to constantly carrying his crystal around it makes a sort of out-of-universe sense for me to not edit his Stability Level. Hal himself doesn't realize, so he would think he's always at 100% and he wouldn't sense the extremely subtle boost in power that a mere few percentage causes. Even if he were to lose a large percentage, until someone actually explained he'll probably just assume something unusual (external element, his own emotions, etc) caused the power boost.

Now that I think about it, how do Supers actually learn Stability is a legit thing and that Dull-Water isn't just a trick on them?

The stability is more of an out-of-character stat, one purely for my benefit to keep things tidy. As for people learning about it, it's mostly because of events prior to the beginning of the game (Which the vast majority of the starting characters would know about, and the others never specified it) involving others going insane, and just being able to feel the effects of being near their crystal as it healed them. The contrast would eventually be pretty noticeable, and word-of-mouth would spread it around. The same would be with the Dull-Water, where people would hear whisperings that it actually worked.

Of course, Hal is almost always near his crystal, so he would likely not notice stability nearly as soon, until he hears of it from someone else. You're free to leave his stability at 100% under that reasoning, but I need the stat to keep his current status in check.

Also, the next update is up.

Thought I'd join, this looks very interesting. Sorry if it's very clear from where this character takes inspiration. I tried to keep my character bio as concise as possible, but I can expand it if needed.

Name: Tobi

Allegiance: Villain


Crystal: A bedroom sized blood red orb with black swirl patterns upon it.

Power: Hypnosis. The crystal changed his eyes to the same colour and pattern as it.
The longer one looks into his eyes, the more they'll be trapped in his illusion, until their body is eventually immbolized and whatever Tobi wants to make them believe is happening happens entirely in their minds.
The hypnosis creates progressively more powerful illusions, until they would feel completely real to the target trapped in its own mind at the last stage.
The main way to halt the process is avoiding staring in Tobi's eyes as much as possible, and to break free the target has to reattain complete control over the emotions caused by the illusions and realize that they are just that, illusions.
Dome: Tobi creates a zone in which the level of hypnosis of people within it costantly increases (but way slower than making eye contact), it can be detected by noticing the blur on the edge of it from outside.
The dome isn't larger than 20-25 square meters, and the atmosphere for people inside the dome feels strange, like something is off. Much less subtle than direct eye-contact hypnosis.

Strength Level: 6

Stability: 60%

Appearance: Tobi wears a long dark coat that covers his entire body but the head and his feet, choosing a mask with eye-holes to cover for the former. He is moderately tall and has short black hair and pale-ish skin underneath his clothing.

History: Tobi hated society and the modern world. After he saw everyone he cared about die, he kept working but began searching for a purpose. He found it at the same time he found the crystal in a dark cave, and after being empowered by it he decided he wanted to get rid of the modern world and create a new one in which there was no pain, tragedy and corruption, with everyone living in peace. He will do anything to accomplish his goal, but isn't afraid of allying with people he considers worthy of being allowed to live in his world. What keeps him far from the concept of hero is that he will not hesitate to exterminate anybody he considers unworthy, but he is extremely cautious about not exposing himself to unnecessary danger if the reward doesn't match it. He's been in NY since the beginning but he spent his time getting accustomed to his powers.

Thanks for showing interest!

I have a few questions, though. Does the hypnosis primarily slow down the person's thoughts/movements, as if they were being put to sleep, or does it allow for you to create illusions that they'll think is real? Or, would the latter only occur once the hypnosis has taken its full effect? And what ways would someone be able to break free?

Also, how big are you thinking the dome should be? And are there any ways to notice it from the inside?

And thank you for considering me ;)

Is this good enough? Should I add it to the bio?

That sounds good! Condensing it into the bio would help me, as I normally end up searching back through these threads to find information that I've forgotten.

With those powers and crystal size, I'd say that his strength level should be around 6 or so. If that's fine with you, then he's approved!

The sixty-eighth update is now up. Tobi's also officially entered.

Also, I will not be likely to respond during the next few days. I will still have an internet connection, unlike last time, but I won't be within range of my laptop to do any major amounts of typing.

It's fine, Lord Darkblade. I understand how easy it is to become too distracted or busy to pay proper attention to this game sometimes .

Update 69 is up.

Edit: I wrote a new Out-of-Sight post (The first in who knows how long). Enjoy!

A Secret Meeting
The man sat patiently on the rooftop, staring down at the derelict streets stretching out below him. His spear is laid out beside him, and though he may appear to be open to an attack from an unsuspecting watcher, he was actually carefully paying attention to everything around him. His cloak of human skin stretches out behind him like a dark shadow, showing faces eternally distorted into a wordless scream popping out at every angle. To many, this cloak would seem like some sort of macabre trophy, but to him, it was a burden, a list of his mistakes. The reason that he took the skins was to warn the people, to show them the dangers of the city and scare them into a quiet obedience. They would hate him for it, but it was ultimately for the best, for if he did not instill fear of the outside world in their hearts, then many others would doubtlessly die. But, occasionally back when he had first started, he would lose track of their homes, or come back and find that they had lived alone. So he stitched them together, refusing to admit that the death was unnecessary and needing to look the part of a villain as well.
He sighs, thinking back to Thanatos. The man had appeared to be so promising, and yet he had ultimately stood in the way. The Outcast had to be made an example of, he had to show that for every good soul out there, there was a monster ten times worse. It was a good think that he had been wearing this metallic mask--Even after doing this for so long, he sometimes had trouble stopping his body from crying for the people that he was hurting. No, there were no heroes in New York. Or, if there were, they were far too weak to heal any more than one man. His 'angel' had ultimately been the cause of his death.
"Hunter," a voice states simply. He stands and turns to face the man in the gray hoodie with the pale skin and the blond hair, spotting the familiar scar under his eye. He was right on time, just like he always was, but the Hunter still hated him. He undoubtedly perceived them to be the same, two lost souls that enjoyed making others suffer, but he couldn't be any more wrong. "You're late, Ash," the Hunter states, despite the fact that it's not at all true. His visitor doesn't show any kind of reaction to this lie, he simply asks, "It's been a while since what happened at Times Square. Are you sure that you didn't break any of them whilst running around like a buffoon?"
The Hunter grimaces (Not that Ash could see it) as he retorts, "You know that I never fail. I simply had other matters to attend to before I could deliver them to you." Ash grins and holds out a hand expectantly. The Hunter briefly considers refusing to hand them over to him, already knowing fully well what he would do with it. I could kill him here, he knew, I could kill the deadman and free all of those children. And yet... He knew deep within himself that this city--No, this world--was beyond saving.
And so he tossed the bag containing the many different vials that he had stolen from the soldiers on the roofs of Times Square to Ash, who catched them easily. He opens the bag and pulls one out, staring at the opaque fluid contained inside. "What powers are these?" he asks with a faint sense of awe. "I haven't the faintest idea," the Hunter replies as he picks back up his spear, "I killed the soldiers after they had shot the Super-Powered with their new toys. There's no telling what you'll be able to do with those."
The man grins, and the Hunter knows that he wouldn't have had it any other way. With the conversation thankfully over, he turns and jumps off the side of the building, leaving the deadman with the precious cargo that he had once stolen, and an immeasurable amount of power.

Update 71 is up.

And I know the feeling. It's hard to believe that this all started two years ago. Back then I still didn't have any idea for the point of making this game, or any idea of what I would do, what sights I would hide within the virtual city to be found. People have come and gone, and I know that I haven't always (Or really ever ) been the most punctual of creators, but I'm truly grateful to all of you that take the time to check these forums and help write Super-Powered (NY) with me every month. Hopefully we can make it even greater by the end.

I would say my last update ended too early anyways, so would it be too much trouble to write in a section in the current update? Hal would just continue (trying) to follow the agent anyways, so...

I generally try and write it whenever I have the time and everyone's posted. If I'm out of time, then I force it in whenever I can (Generally when I post just the day before it would be locked). Recently, I've had some more time to update, but half of the players are still missing, and I'd prefer to not have to have people "frozen" for any longer than necessary. Sometimes, though, I really just don't have the time to sit down and devote time to writing (And still function as a human being with sleep and food), which really disappoints me. Sorry for the inconvenience.
