Thats Pfister! And thanks, I think its cool also.

Playing the Role

(Jessie) With all these new super-beings about; a ghost, a incredible high tech cube... hell we have the world's strongest man with us. It is past the time of discovery and time for each of us to step into the role we plan on playing.

Taking pages from both Sam and The former Press Secretary, I will wear a pilot's helmet to protect the ones I'm with. I still am Jessie, the generals daughter, older sister and a air force pilot. But.

When I am confronted to threats of National Security and the President comes to call: It is Supernova who answers.

And Phister: I love the truck!

2058 News

2058
1. Chaos worldwide as an “energy event” has caused multiple crisis’s all over the world. Every nation on earth has their military currently at its highest alert level, with many accusations being leveled by one country or union towards another. China has declared that the United States is the only other nation on earth with the means to cause such an event. The Chinese swear that they were not involved but many question their sincerity because few anomalies were reported from China. This doesn’t mean that none occurred.
2. The area’s hardest his by these anomalies seem to have been the United States, the European Union, and the Russian Bloc. Each country has indicated a different time table for having normal communications and internet connections.
3. The United States is claiming that a foreign government has shot down 2 satellites.
4. There is a new lake in downtown LA; from Wilshire Boulevard, between Catalina Street and Mariposa Avenue, it is slowly growing.
5. Unknown energy type measured in all US locations. Foreign governments have had no official response but privately several sources, all anonymous, have confirmed similar readings. Some countries have no means of measuring.
6. There has been an unprecedented freeze to all world markets for at least two weeks. There are fears of a world-wide depression.
7. Krasnoyarsk Krai of the Russian Federation reports a massive explosion similar to what was reported in Nevada but of a much larger scale.
8. Greece has reported that Mt Olympus is ensconsced in a green glowing mist, with many citizens believing a return of the fabled greek gods has occurred. Greece further reports that the mountain has risen 20 feet during this time and is continuing to rise, leading to fears that the town of Litochoro at its base would eventually be destroyed.
9. Berlin Germany: Reports indicate many strange phenomena involving heavy equipment and machinery. There are unconfirmed reports being posted on UVID of several people exhibiting extraordinary abilities, with one video showing a man growing some 10 feet in height with muscles bulging. Obviously these videos are viewed with much disdain.
10. Reports from Spain indicate strange weather patterns.
11. France reports several strange occurrences involving tombs and the catacombs of Paris.
12. Off the coast of Florida, several long lost planes and ships attributed to the Bermuda Triangle have washed ashore.
13. Between Florida and Cuba, a new island has risen. Sattelite imaging has lead to suspicion that this is the lost city of gold.

Living Statues



The left image is the moving statues you saw, though they were fully formed and solid. The right picture is the hidden chamber the Americans found and hid the nuke

Time Well Spent

The former Press Secretary has spent her time wisely. Armor has now been outfitted for her and a specialty helmet has been fashioned for her. Where once before stood an unsure woman, afraid of her power, now stands someone born anew. She revels in her new found strength and has embraced this new journey that life has given her.

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Hey fellas. I have discovered another oversight in character creation. It involves ability score maximums. Page 24 states that STR and CON, unlike the other four abilities, max out at a bonus no higher than the power level of the game. The others max at power level +5. So your STR and CON scores max at 10 plus twice the power level ( 22 at pl 6) . This would not really have affected much - its only a 4 point difference from the stats that I used. This will give me 4 points to distribute elsewhere, and I will post those changes soon.

I agree with Pfister

As sickness grips me, I vaguely hear the Pfister proudly affirm his dedication for the good of his country and liberty. Too weak to speak so fervently, I too am honored to serve in this capacity.

It gives me pause to trust the President out of hand (knowing she as well has new extraordinary powers); however I will give her the benefit of the doubt. What choice do I have? What choice do any of us have?

Egypt

Egypt (Egyptian: Kemet; Coptic: ? Kīmi; Arabic: مصرMiṣr ; Egyptian Arabic: ṣr), officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a country in North Africa that includes the Sinai Peninsula, a land bridge to Asia. Covering an area of about 1,001,450 square kilometers (386,660 sq mi), Egypt borders Libya to the west, Sudan to the south, and the Gaza Strip and Israel to the east. The northern coast borders the Mediterranean Sea and the island of Cyprus; the eastern coast borders the Red Sea.

Egypt is one of the most populous countries in Africa. The great majority of its estimated 78 million people (2007) live near the banks of the Nile River in an area of about 40,000 square kilometers (15,000 sq mi) where the only arable agricultural land is found. The large areas of the Sahara Desert are sparsely inhabited. About half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with the majority spread across the densely populated centers of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta.

Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramid complex and the Great Sphinx. The southern city of Luxor contains numerous ancient artifacts, such as the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings. Egypt is widely regarded as an important political and cultural nation of the Middle East.

Life and Death in Egyptian Sands

Ok, stop me if you've heard this one before... the President sends us to Egypt to take out this nuke that we placed in/under the Sphinx during the Middle Earth Wars... yeah, right... We get there w/ the help of Sam, the tattooed UFC guy? He takes us on a dizzying trip of 5 mile "jumps", as he calls them, teleporting us to w/in 100 yards of the Sphinx. Man, that rickety old thing in Vegas ain't got nuthin' on the actual thing. As we come up on it, it looks like there's some type of scaffolding around it, and possible a couple divisions of the Egyptian military out here too. They seem to be interested in the giant, 50 feet tall statues w/ jackal heads that seem to be doing some type of... dance... I guess you'd call it. Ok, shit... I gotta stop here, wrap my head around this. I can deal w/ the way things are now, me having... powers, abilities, whatever... for short periods of time but then my brain starts saying "No no no no no" and refuses to work. Lemme go get something to drink and get my head right (HA!) and I'll be back for the rest...

My favorite analogy.

Death is always a possibility behind the stick of a fighter, however that likelihood can be overcome with superior skill and talent. The only death that is assured is that from the progress of time. My favorite analogy compares time to an unceasing hunting beast that you cannot escape.

It is this fact and the shock that time has been traversed that brings things into question. As an unwilling passenger forward through the months, this Timelight has somehow invested itself in me- and I believe it is killing me.

I shall endeavor to develop these new skills, powers and talents to overcome the beast.

Lost at sea

In the days following my reunion with my father he seemed distant, occupied- more so than in the past. That coupled with the fact that the whole world has moved on without us. Makes it seem like we on an island in unfamiliar waters.

My limits have been tested and my patients have been stretched. I assume I’m in special training, considering the nature of the examinations and the extent of the information they are gathering. But I agree with Sam, my cooperation has its limits especially if I feel I’ve lost my freedom.

One thing is missing in all this. What has happened outside of this facility? Knowing that a year has passed without us, the President and everyone here; what impact has that made? We have some catching up to do.

One Year Later...

(as Paul)

Ok... So it's one year later. We've been transported somehow one year into the future. Now, I'm no scientist, but I have seen some sci-fi shows and movies and if we meet ourselves, it ain't gonna be pretty... but then, everyone thinks I'm dead, so maybe there IS no "future me". I have no idea how the president thinks I'm gonna do to stop a war... hell, my singing may even make things worse. But if this is my new gig, I guess I'm gonna hafta toe the line. Hell, maybe this won't be so bad, living on the government's dime. At least I don't hafta worry about thugs comin' around wanting their money!

Paul Turner

The smoke makes scrolls in the air as it rises from my cigarette. Here I lay in a cheap motel, w/ a snoring 40-something woman that I picked up at the lounge I was singing at tonight, nect to me. I thought I was on my way, 7 years ago, in L.A. Top 40 hit, played on the radio almost constantly... where'd it go? What went wrong? I sit up and sigh, reaching for the gin to wash this taste out.

The door does it's best to retain that name as it bursts in, the flimsy lock and chain barely even making a show. The doorway is filled with the siloutte of a huge man, balding, sweating, slabs of muscle covered in fat. The wife-beater and sweatpants don't really do much to add to his figure. Enormous hands writhe as the hairy fingers dance along the steel tire iron in their grasp. The woman (Carla?) sits up immediately, her sagging breasts puddling around her lap, "Larry!", she screams.

"You bitch!" shouts the mountain of male testosterone. I glance from him, to her and back to him. Reaching out, I point at the tire iron and his hands... I have skills, see. Steam rises into the dry desert air as my targets' temprature drops insanely fast. At the same time, I'm scooping up my pants, bounding across the bed and headed for the bathroom. Screw the shirt, I can get another. Thank God I left my wallet and car keys in my pants. Larry emits a sound between a bitten off scream and a grunt as he tries to let go of the tire iron, only to find it frozen there in his hands.

In the tiny room that's called a bathroom, there's a window on a wall of the shower. A rumble builds in my chest as I glare at the glass and aluminum frame, both of which are beginning to vibrate. C'mon, c'mon, Larry ain't gonna wait for much longer. Hopefully he'll vent on the wife/girlfriend/dick cozey long enou- YES!! The glass shatters and the aluminum twists out of the frame. With the speed of an Olympic athelete, I vault out of the window, cutting my feet alittle on the broken glass, and make my way full speed to my car and safety...

Fallout-men


In the past I’ve never looked my opponents in the eye because you can’t see your opponent from the cockpit. But as I engage these unfortunate ‘survivors’ of the recent devastation, the fallout-men, whatever you call them- it was either us or them.

The time-light energy answered my every call; the force field, the energy blast that ended the fallout-men’s attack. Even taking to flight was realized easily in the encounter between us and them. Indeed the effects from the US Eldritch explosion did not only affect me but these survivors as well. The strong-man Pfister, his power and focus increased a hundred fold. Tatton and the others: Paul and Big Slick, men whom I met the night before with new extraordinary, if not super abilities. It stands to reason others may have experienced the same or similar effects as us- even to different degrees.

Never have I been so afraid. Not of the fallout-men or my fellow survivors, but of myself and the powers I now have. With new talents discovered and some undiscovered- I fear that I may not be able to temper their destructiveness.

Supernova


A new primordial element has introduced itself to me. Energy of rippling light that I can control, more powerful than adrenaline felt from pulling 5 Gs, and more intoxicating than alcohol. I feel different, like I do when in the cockpit.
A sensation of flying is always at my call, as if I could will myself to rise into the skies. At times it is stronger than others, but when I think of a fighter jet, stealth bomber or even Airforce One- it is as if I could join them in the cobalt skies over the landscape.
In fact, the more I think of my experiences as call-sign: Supernova; all tactical controls, communication and maneuverability seem available to me.

Sam Tatton aka The Midnight Assassin



Born on the mean streets of Brooklyn a young Sam Tatton grew up a fighter. Never taking the easy road, Sam often found him self in direct conflict with local bullies and various criminal organizations. His last attempt to take back his neighborhood found himself on the wrong side of the law as his vigilante approach landed him behind bars. Facing a long prison term he opted for a stint in the military and quickly earned top marks in most of his combat training. Bored with countless hours of training and no real combat Sam started an underground fight club for soldiers and soon became known through out the base as the “Midnight Assassin”. Once the Generals found out they were worried about the public image of the government, allowing such an organization to exist in our own military could cause a lack of confidence in our morals. With to many top ranking officials involved the only way to avoid a scandal was to avoid prosecution and give Sam an honorable discharge. After the military Sam’s fighting ways led him to the UFC where he has turned his strike first, strike hard attitude into a successful and profitable career.

Craig/SPARTAN-12

Craig is a 12 year-old boy who has been crippled since birth. Given the age difference between him and his older sister, Jessie, he never really knew her outside her parents' frequent arguing about her. While he loves his mom, he grew up idolizing his dad, a pinnacle of strength that his broken body could never achieve. Perhaps because of this, his intellect expanded to a super-genius level.

SPARTAN-12 was cobbled together from spare parts found in boneyards, using funds "appropriated" illicitly. Standing approximately 10 feet tall, SPARTAN-12 appears to be no less than a jury-rigged heap of scrap metal roughly shaped like a man. A dome-like structure sits in place of it's head which contains two glowing photoreceptors among other sensory devices.

Craig's greatest dream is to have unlimited funds and time to explore the limits of robotics.
