Sorry couldn't help myself.

Hey I found it pretty funny.

Hmmm...all I know so far is that his cape name is Umbra (I might give him Umbrakinesis, aka darkness generation as his powers) and that he will look monochrome (very light gray skin, eyes, hair, etc.)

Reading Worm gave me a new insight into what someone with powers over darkness and shadows could do.....there is some interesting usages for that power that I never even thought of. Dread doesn't entirely count for this as his main schtick was terrorizing criminals moreso than anything else.

Here is a wriye up on some

Here is a write up on some info on The Naughty Corner that would be known to most people:

Technically, it's not "Nina's" Naughty Corner, it's called "The" Naughty Corner. It has two owners, myself and a mission NPC named Barbie Brat (if you remember from the original Kickstarter comments page, I gave a little description of my real life friend who she is based on). Individual people may refer to it as 'Nina's" because they know me better than her, but I would appreciate if you could make mention of her in the story, at least in passing.

As for WHAT it is, well, I guess it's a nightclub dance bar that serves as a 'mini-resort'. I describe it as 'the tropics brought to Titan City'. It's modeled after some of the trendier nightclubs in Miami (as seen in movies and TV). Chrome, glass and neon everywhere. Hip-hop, R&B and rap with a Latin flavor, with some rock slipped in here and there to spice things up. And yes, some gospel can be heard on Sundays.

It's on the corner (naturally) of two major streets. On ground level is a fountain that serves as ameeting area and during the day, people may throw coins in it and kids (or even older people) can take off theirs hoes and go wading it it's hot out. Parking is off site, across the street. and valet is available at night.

The second floor is the main dance club level, with plenty of open space to dance in, a big bar in the center of the club and a stage/DJ area at the back. There is also an outdoor patio area which severs as club spill over at night and is open for lunch during the day (served from barbeque stand/whatever located out back of the building.

The third floor is a more low key, less brightly lit, quieter bar area for more private meetings. There are even small rooms off to the side if you want to get REALLY private, for some reason.

The forth floor is not open to the public. It serves as living space for Barbie and myself, with balconies all around for when we want a little air.

The fifth floor/roof is primarily a rooftop pool, with swim up bar and more room for tables and dancing, etc. There are changing rooms for people who want to put on their swimsuits.

As far as a schedule of activities, the nightclub/bar areas open at 6PM til 2AM. Staff and friends often hang out 'after hours' til 4Am or so. The cleaning crew comes in at 6AM to get ready for that days events. AT Noon we open for lunch and at 6PM everything starts over again. On the weekends, it's not unusual to have known recording artist in for small concerts in the club.

I hope this gives you the details you need (and probably much MORE that you needed ;P)

You may want to rethink that name. Both Marvel and DC have a character named Umbra. :-/

If you really want power inspiration, you could take a look at Superpower Wiki. I go there whenever SuperMuse strikes and I can't immediately think of something.

For example, Umbrakinesis can encompass so much more than just darkness generation.

Dammit completely forgot

Dammit completely forgot about those characters. Ugh...

So many of the good names are taken which is irritating....

Edit: I researched a little bit and I think I might take Wraith as his cape name as two of the definitions fit with his physical appearance and from what I could tell the name is not taken. Still trying to figure out his powersets though....

I could give him Light Generation. There is a reason why he's gray after all.

I'm with Xselcier here

I'm with Xselcier here Bleddyn. We got a story going on here with not just one "Dark" power user but two. There Joshua "Boogieman/Sandman" and Ron "Rotten Luck" I'm making sure Ron stays in the background just not to overwhelm the story with three of my characters at once and limit how much darkness I bring.

Try something different take a power people use but add a twist to it. For example Phantom Gentleman is a duel blade fighter who only power is Phasing. Of course he takes that to the max phasing between two points with help of a pocket dimension, appearing like a ghost, intangibility, invisibility.

What other powers could your guy have besides dark/necromancy?

I tend to try to think of odd twists. Like an evil healer. Yes someone that can heal being bad. How can such a power be wrong, well if they can cause, reverse aging, rapid growth, or mutations as well as simple healing...

Or a person who has all the skills of every ancestor he or she had a genetic memory.

Hmmm...to be brutally honest

Hmmm...to be brutally honest I want to completely reboot a lot of my characters damn near completely. I have some interesting ideas for my old characters that would make more sense aesthetically. I have been rather unsatisfied with my old work for a long while now. To give myself some credit though these characters were my first RP characters ever and I didn't have a huge amount of ideas swirling around in my head back then

For example. Marionette instead of being an light bulb dressed like a mental asylum patient would probably either be someone who looks very much like a porcelain doll whom can either fight with a whole lot of ridiculous gymnastics or psychically modify and control plushies (his name would be a intenional irony if I go with that kind pf powerset). I am more leaning towards the latter powerset as that would likely be more interesting and unique.

Sebastian wold get completely reconstructed as I have some new ideas to implement his schtick better. Current ideas for a new cape name would be Crow (Raven is already taken). Costume would be more of a throwback to Plague Doctors in medieval times. His power would actually be Biological Manipulation coupled with some subtle psychic powers (to control the mindless undead of course). This would encompassing his capabilities of healing and his modifications of undead. He would still mainly be a support person but I would make him more of a healer or a debuffer here.

Dread will get probably get some small extra powers (pain inducement) and his current one will get more expanded upon more and I think I will actually reconstruct his backstory so he's obviously half-alien from the start. His name will remain unchanged

I actually have a (hopefully) really interesting idea for Deluder. I think what I will do with him is make him a mutant that got ''toon'' powers. When his powers manifested it changed his body to resemble a cartoon anthromorphic rabbit. Of course since his powers are off the wall unusual he would still get targeted by an amoral underground scientist organization. He would be driven to a psychotic break with there experiments and would end up breaking out and classified as a villain for his violent actions. He would be wanted for being a serial killer that admittedly just targets amoral people.

Enigma will get a backstory change and a power change. I actually might make him a power copier. His costume would change a little bit, his hair would be completely covered and his mask would of course still look like he bandaged his face up so his features are not discernible. He's intentionally meant to be...well an Enigma. A mystery to other people both power wise and identity wise.

I still am rather unsure about what I want to do with Wraith. A lot of the powers that I can think of are taken. I am thinking either of a twist on spectral powers or a straight up chronomancer (time manipulation)

I also have an idea for a fungalmancer type of character code named Phage. Might intentionally be a throwback to the Devouring Earth. He'll have some twists.....

Might also do a blood mage or a bone manipulator.

Any thoughts on those ideas?

As far as it goes, Bleddyn, I

As far as it goes, Bleddyn, I'd be wary about "creative application" powers, such as time manipulation and biomancy. Those can get away from you, and get really dark if done wrong.

Or a person who has all the skills of every ancestor he or she had a genetic memory.

That one's easy; two examples for you, both from Worm.

Panacea is an individual with complete control over the biology of people she touches. usually that means she can heal, but if she wanted to, she could change the person's lungs to not be able to take in any more air, or even cause the person's blood to go caustic, resulting in a long, drawn out death. Even something as simple as just changing someone's appearance at a touch can be used pretty evilly if you use the right appearance. And this is if she doesn't just decide to use someone's gut as a factory for an incredibly dangerous epidemic.

Bonesaw was a "tinker" with an unmatched understanding of biology, allowing her to do surgeries that by all rights should be completely impossible. Except, having been recruited by a madman early on in life meant those impossible surgeries she did generally were of the "horrifying" variety, including taking a pair of supers and attaching them together, and then putting her own tech in control of the amalgamation's nervous system, leaving the two individuals trapped in eternal pain in a body they had to share with another, watching from the inside and unable to do anything.

Really, "Evil healer" isn't hard. It just tends to get way, way worse than standard villainy, which is why we don't see it much. There's no way to sugar coat body horror.

An infinite number of tries doesn't mean that any one of those tries will succeed. I could flip an infinite number of pennies an infinite number of times and, barring genuine randomness, they will never come up "Waffles".

I am aware of those two as I have read Worm. That's partly were I got the idea from. I wasn't really going to go as far and as detailed (well maybe, I do have a lot of knowledge about anatomy in general but I am not sure if it would be interesting to apply that to others who are not very knowledgeable of it) as Wildbow went with that though and I wasn't going to have Sebastian doing it to living beings either (I remember very vividly what happened to Glory Girl, Grue, and Mousecatcher....)

I was going to have Sebastian take some ques from Panacea but of course since he's a hero he would have lines he won't cross. Body horror on living bodies would be one of them. Hypothetically I would have him construct a skeleton out of bone dust and then have him modify those skeletons. After that he would control them and use them for protection, attacking, or support. He wouldn't steal bodies for obvious reasons. Unless I had him go rouge I wouldn't emphasize the body horror as bad as what Bonesaw would do to her victims or what Panacea accidentally did to her sister. Although admittedly where talking about a necromancer here, horror is part of the package. But near Bonesaw or Nilbog levels? Nah I will probably....save that for Corius the Damned and his little band of evil necromancers.

I rather liked the way Wildbw constructed how the powers worked in the Wormverse. Gave me ideas behind powers I have seen before that I haven't even thought about.

I was just wondering if it was okay to reboot my characters. I was very hesitant to do it before now as I though I would mess up the flow for RPs...but considering how the RPs I participated in before now have died off....

I am coming along with my

I am coming along with my rebooted versions of my characters. There is some codename changes.

- Sebastian's codename is now Crow instead of Gravemire. I couldn't figure out anything else that would make sense aesthetically as his costume will be more in spirit of a Plague Doctor. Might make some small changes to his backstory.
- Marionette's codename was changed to Freakshow because of his new powers and how his costume will be like a over the top ringmaster's outfit. I am unsure about this one, the other name I was considering was Gepetto.
- Cybernautic's name might stay. I still don't know what to do with him yet. I don't even have a power picked although I do have some ideas
- Glimmer's name is staying. I might change her powers and appearance a little bit though. Backstory will be fleshed out
- Deluder will get changed to White Rabbit. His powers will be more Loony Toon esc with a mix of The Mask. I might actually just have him wear a really creepy rabbit mask and a straight jacket. His backstory will not be changed to much
- Umbra is being changed to Spectrum. He will have light manipulation powers possibly in the spirit of Fetch from Infamous Second Son. Not sure about backstory or costume yet
- I have a name for my blood manipulator. He/she will be named Bloodletter. Not sure about how I want to spin this power....though Deadman Wonderland has given me ideas. Not sure about backstory either
- Phage might be changed. He will be a villain with powers similar to Poison Ivy but much much worse. Imagine Blasto and a bit of Nilbog from Worm and you will have this guy. His backstory will be inspired by Carrie and I will fully admit he will probably have the most depressing backstory I have ever written
- Corius the Damned will be changed to Faust. Should fit him and he still works with the Barons. He might have a little inspiration of Nilbog and Dead Space with his style of Necromancy.
- Dread will remain unchanged name wise. He will have one extra power though, inspired by Grue. His costume and backstory will change though. He will wear a tattered hooded cloak with either a mask with a expression of terror or a mask with a reflective surface like a mirror. He will be obviously half alien from the start.

Those ideas are still subject to change. On the topic of backstories I will try to rework them to be less depressing and dark. I will admit the idea I have for Phage is really evil though. Thoughts?

I'm thinking Crux pulls up just after Tobias gets let in.

I'm looking at Bastion for Crux, so the healing and non-defense spells are likely to be coming out of the tertiary abilities. But at this point she's also still filling out her defense-of-others abilities.

I forgot what I got/thought

I forgot what I got/thought last time I tried putting Tobias in the CoT chart... Lemme try uh... Probably Melee primary since every form has access to the blades. (Armored forms would be cosmetic, probably.)
Auras are across all sides and mostly defensive... His Tertiary would probably fill out the "Light" aspects as well as the "Yin-Yang" powers he doesn't have access to yet.
So I guess he's a Gladiator with a Support or Control Tertiary.
Hopefully. Really hope they incorporate some set that can be used so ambiguously as to be turned into this. Would also be neat to be able to have actual transformation modes, not too unimaginable since Kheldians got to change and get different powers.

I don't have the CoT chart memorized either. Until I know more about the power sets I still think in City of Heroe terms.

If that guy in the business suit gets closer to Crux (or vice versa), the glow will get brighter. Like Orcs for Sting, but Frost Giants instead. ^_^

Your character fine just that I had things thought out. Can't have two people driving the story. With the Norse frost giant aka Jutan Frost, mages, rhinestone traps. I have no problem with you joining in or coming up with things. Just clear them with me first.

Rott, did you have specific identities for the hostages, or are they just nameless NPC's?

If they're nameless and you don't mind, I'd like to assign an identity to one of them, thereby giving me an in for Permafrost. (Five points to those who remember which thread he was last seen in.)

Putting yourself in another persons shoes emotionally is something that everyone has to experience eventually. It's part of learning to be a human being. Roleplayers do it for fun.

Can we count "Meeting in the Dark" as a separate thread, or is it just an epilogue to "Museum Heist"?

And does the fact that I used my search-fu disqualify me for the five points? ^_^

Xselcier you are more than welcomed to take over one of the NPC hostages. They were just generic random folks. Though I did have an idea to include a young teenager and a Military vet but those were just adding character to NPCs. So sure Permafrost can be one of them.

P.S. the chamber the hostages are in has a window overlooking the chamber where the ritual take place at. So Perma would be able to see Jutan.

I hope I didn't come across

I hope I didn't come across as hard. I just want a heads up if you want to do something like adding a Robot, beholder, or dragon. None of them would have worked given the ideas I had for the cultist group. Most of the time when someone creates an adventure like this cultist dungeon crawl, they are the ones controlling the events of the dungeon. Players are in control of their characters and only their characters.

you had your character assigned as a guard by herself. If you had asked me if that was alright I would have been more than happy to say yes. Would also add a second guard. Given your character showed fire magic she would be very useful in the fight with the Frost Giant.

If you want to leave that's your right. Just hope I didn't come out as a jerk.

Alex, it's really not as big

Alex, it's really not as big of an issue as I think you're perceiving it to be. There's nothing wrong with you participating, and from the sound of it, you simply had a misunderstanding about the etiquette of the way the RP is handled. I'm not sure if you have a solid character concept in mind, but most of us participate with an Avatar of our choosing in mind. No body wants to ruin someone elses fun, and I don't think you have; RL just wanted to make it clear that the GM role for this dungeon is theirs. We can move on from this and have fun, there's no need to stress about it. Heck, honestly? I've caused more disruption to RP scenarios, in other threads.

Sorry to interject, probably repeated what RL said in a different way too. I think the character in the crypt you've displayed so far has potential, like Rotten said, the fire magic would be useful against these opponents. Perhaps you could write up a profile for the character and have her defect from the cultists. It's not a bad origin, and you don't have to exclude yourself; none of us want you excluded either.

That's not precisely what I had in mind. Permafrost met someone in Museum Heist and has ended up getting engaged to her. She, Samantha Wax, is who I'd like the hostage to be. The fact that he'd also be sticking it to Jutan again would just be icing on the cake... no pun intended.

Left is open if the cultist Permafrost taken out was Alex character or not. That way if Alex rejoins it be fine and no one would have to play the character.

I always have trouble

I always have trouble explaining Tobias' powers ICly, without using the originating thought. Light passes through him, and there's a Douglas Adams style "Somebody Elses Problem Field" cloaking around him. Without the field, or to people he's exempted from it, or people resistant, he's a blob of blurry air in the shape of a person with some dark wisps. Though, I'm curious based on that notion, does infrared light pass through him too? The light is still bent a bit, so I would imagine he would be visible, and temperature variation would work too. x.x

As for IR, I'd say it's up to

As for IR, I'd say it's up to the designer, of the stealth system or the spell or the character. ^_^
Some animals see a bit further into infrared than humans do, I can easily conceive of other critters (though I can't think of real-world examples) that can see a bit further into the ultraviolet. And both ends of the visible spectrum are popular for use in "electric eye" beams and enhanced vision devices; so there would be reason for someone designing a stealth system (or spell) to make it effective against IR or UV.

My take on the S.E.P field is that it works on minds, not the sensors, so unless someone has psychic defenses or is excluded, they just notice nothing unusual.

Based on your IC response...

For Ultraviolet rats see into that range. Heck, they glow in the UV range so they can see each other in dark spaces. Some insects Bees and wasps I believe see into the UV range.

If it's mental then Rotten wouldn't be affected he has a high resistance to psychic influence. Both by being technically dead and by having been bonded to the Hel's Orb and thus became a conduit of her power/will.

I kinda figured it was a

I kinda figured it was a minor hybrid idea, cloaking with shadows to bend/pass through the light, and S.E.P. field to cover that little trace, cause it's technically a magic-like ability. Though it doesn't take much to break the S.E.P. cause group thought or simply witnessing him decloak can over ride his S.E.P. which is kind of why teammates can notice him cause they're in his group plus if he talks at someone, that breaks the S.E.P, to that person, shouting at a room would too. His breed of demons were magically made, self inflincted, by some accounts .Their origin's more fuzzy in C.O.T than head canon.
