Scenario Two was already gonna happen anyway, so what does he have to lose?


Nothing I suppose, if you put it that way. I'm just thinking of character perspective. Were a fight to break out in front of me, I think "I've got a bomb." would probably not be on my list of things to say, specially' around already panicked dudes.

You forgot scenario 3 where everyone breaks out into song and dance.

Yea it's more of a threat than a deterrent when you have a bunch of strong headed, super powered people, the new guys might back down the but somehow I see Hana's NPC responding to that kind of threat seriously. Kal and Will can get to know each other in the hospital it seems.

I'm kinda torn. Kal and william's actions don't make sense to me


William's intention is to gather everyone's attention on him and let them all know exactly how stupid this whole 'everyone mass attack on that one guy' fiasco is. To him it's like those police chases where you see a guy get thrown from the vehicle and get hit by an entire football team worth of officers. He's just pissed off basically.

If he's angry that everyone was getting into the two guy's biz, why would he do it himself? And no one has attacked anyone yet except Julian (the green guy). From what I read, it's just a crowd gathering around, which in my experience, is exactly what happens when a fight breaks out.

Ooh, also, does William's power make the towels knock people down? And would the dish soap spray with the force of a water hose? I didn't really grok when you were explaining it.

Because he's not getting in their business, his attack was at everyone else in the yard whether they be super powered interlopers (as William sees them) like Julian and the other NPCs or the gawkers. If the brothers use the confusion to leave and settle their problems away from prying eyes that would probably be ideal for William.

The towels will move in a straight line without stopping unless they're destroyed or are outside the range I stated earlier. They will push against anything or anyone in their path without stopping as well, so people will get pushed until they're 30 feet away from William or they'll be knocked off balance and probably fall. There are 4 ways to deal with the towels: get out of range, dodge them, destroy them, or have a power which can directly counter the physics behind it.

The dish soap wouldn't have the force of a water hose, a person would just be slowly shoved back 30 feet if they didn't dodge a squirt from it. His power doesn't amplify force it simply causes objects to be unaffected by anything that would change their velocity (air friction/gravity/obstructions/etc).

To explain his earlier fears about his power imagine if he were to accidentally bump a table with his power active, he could easily crush someone against a wall or even push them through it.

*shrug* Well regardless of intent you're definitely in the melee now.

I think Julian pretty much wrecked that, so I won't hold my breath.

That is awesome. I'm assuming you can do that with your body as well, so if your suckerpunch hits, Julian is probably going to be pushed away or something 'cause of his forcefield.

Well, while people might hear it that way, he's not really speaking in a threatening manner. This is essentially the mutant equivalent of trying to stop a fight by feigning a heart condition. Nobody wants to give a guy a heart attack because that can be manslaughter.

That said, I full anticipate Julian doing something stupid.

Also Sentios that is one of the most exploitable superpowers ever.

o..o No, it's really not. I believe it's quite the opposite. Even if not said in a threatening manner, Kal's appearance (Smoking hands, energetic eyes) and implied potential ("Like a little nuke.") Will definitely get people's attention, but not in the way you might think.

Possibly, but I'm betting that once everyone else's powers get out there will be plenty of room for exploitation. I've got a suspicion that his isn't the worst.

I'd also like to add that all of the above is for the sake of discussion, and I mean none of it to be in an antagonizing tone.

Will launched the oven mitt at him, the oven mitt will probably sucker punch him. Since he's near the range limit he probably won't go flying but he might eat some dirt. The power can affect Will's body but he won't use it in that way for a while to come due to something in his back-story.

Also Sentios that is one of the most exploitable superpowers ever.

Arguing makes Hana unhappy.

No arguing here, this is all in good intent.

Okay, well...Just don't let it get to the point where anyone is getting angry or frustrated.

I will post tomorrow or Monday, so anyone who wants to get a post in, this is your two minute warning.

Re: X-Men: E341 OOC - STILL Accepting!

No worries Hana, we're just having some banter. I'm excited to learn all the powers.

The only error I saw was that Will did not throw towels at the brothers so there wasn't a need for Des to burn one. Minor error, I wouldn't worry about it.

Good, that'll teach them what happens when they come poking around my trench.

In all seriousness though, I just have no idea what to do.

Re: X-Men: E341 OOC - STILL Accepting!

Wed Apr 24, 2013 9:34 pm

We need Hana. I know what to do, just don't know how to present it.

Re: X-Men: E341 OOC - STILL Accepting!

Wed Apr 24, 2013 10:13 pm

Whatcha need?

Also, gonna make a standing rule. If there are no posts in the game thread for a solid week, I'm going to do a timeskip.

Re: X-Men: E341 OOC - STILL Accepting!

Wed Apr 24, 2013 11:05 pm

I need a post from sam. Samantha can't do anything until Nancy replies.
