Reform School Mutants
The 190 was for a group who joined my other game.  You might want to read this thread because it could have some information.  It's in this thread where I said the players in this group has 180pts to make a character.

If you're looking for a Stealth power to cover up your movements, you could always pick... Stealth.   Tongue  It's on page 79 of the Ultimate Powers Book.  It also works for more than just sound.  If you want you could put a limitation on it so it only effects sound.  There's another power on the Classic Marvel Superhero Website called nondetection.  For either power you could limit it to be only on when you have your Invisibility active.

I'm still thinking 40pts is very high for that kind of limitation.  The fact you give me more control over your hair seems fun and is a possibility.  My issue is, when you compare the Vocal command with something like, the power only works at night which the book says is Ex 20, it seems the "only works at night" is more severe.  That's why I don't like using that table for CP's.

Okay so replace sound manipulation with stealth, (non detection was poorly defined and seemed over powered.)

And how much could I get for my limitation to control my hair?

I mean its a real problem as i could be trying to hide in a base crawling with baddies and my hair decides to start attacking them without my orders not to or to try and steal a weapon ect. So If i were to command it They might hear me and thus start combat anyway.

In effect I made it a much nastier limitation than was suggested and yes i agree they are only suggested . So can you give me a point break to work with for math?

History: Jena was born to her parents in 2002 she had ten fingers ten toes and seemed to be perfectly normal in all regards. Her parents whom were both mutants were over joyed. They work in the fields of, Veterinarian (Mom) and IT specialist (Dad). Jenna grew up a normal girl in every way that is. She joined the junior detectives club at school and had a lot of adventures where she learned some skills such as Detective work and how to bypass security systems. On the schools basket Ball and Soft ball teams she learned how to throw. The twin when they were born were terrors before they could walk. Jenna was often found herself to be a frazzled big sister. Thankfully her wits kept her ahead of them most of the time. Jenna learned to keep on her toes and frankly her sister loves to use her for "Target Practice" which helped train her ability to avoid being hit. Thankfully her sisters slingshot was so weak it was mostly stings and not enough to do more than leave a red mark.

It was during the formation of the Avengers during “The Incident” that Jenna finally got her powers. The Hulk  knocked a huge serpent craft out of the sky and it landed on Jenna who through sheer luck was in a hole in the hull that threw her bodily through the cyber-beasts power core. The exposure to the alien radiation and energy as well as her sheer fright caused her latent mutations to manifest dramatically inside the thing allowing her to make her way out. Her parents hopes at having a normal child were dashed. Her hair seemingly had a mind of its own. It was trying to be friendly and helpful to her but sometimes it attacks perceived foes on its own like a small guard dog but with more manipulative abilities. He parents heard about this school that had a supposed cure and figured it would either cure her or get her hair under control more. Jenna has no hopes at finding a cure and really likes being one of the smartest people on the planet now Still as a minor she has no choice so she has been shipped off with a trunk of her stuff.

You know what? I think I'll tap out of this, for now. Might join later, if that's an option, but I've got a lot going on right now.

Have fun!

Notes: --

1) Your ability scores are all wrong except Psyche.
2) I count you used 220 pts.  You're allowed 180.

69 = Primary stats
10 = Resources (Typical 5x2 = 10)
61 = Prehensile Hair ( 10base+ 36rank + 15overpower = 61)
26 = Invisibility (10base + 16Rank = 26)
18 = Stealth (10base + 8rank = 18)
26 = Light Absorption (10base + Rank16 = 26)
10 = Contacts (2 x 5 = 10)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
220 Total

3) These things must be fixed before I can continue.

For a limitation to give 40 points it has to be a substantial limitation.  For an example that's a little more tangible imagine a player could put those 40 points toward strength.  In an adult game that would give them a Strength Incredible 40 allowing them to lift 10 tons or inflict 40 damage.  All that just for having to talk to your hair which as a player I'm thinking, WOO HOO!! Gimme!!  This is a student game so the Overpower cost does change that slightly but it's still a great deal.

Like I said, the limitations listed in the book don't exactly translate to the point base system and were meant as a Maximum Rank the power could have, not to give the player that power rank.  I'm not sure why they did it that way.  Personally it seems a little silly to say you can't have more than an Incredible rank if you have to talk to use you power.  

In any case, I'm willing to allow the 40 points if you understand that with your hair doing its own thing it could do anything.  It might tippy toe you out of your room at night to go "watch" TV.  It might decide when fighting Magneto to pick you up and run you away from battle.  It could be anything.  I will be rolling randomly to decide if it listens to you or decides to do something else.  If that's cool with you then we have a deal.

That's cool and what I expected its a semi-uncontrollable power Smile

Later on she can buy it off or down as she "learns to control her hair."

After all her hair "Has a mind of its own" Heck it might even form into different hair styles that are socially embarrassing, like a 6 foot wide afro LOL

ABOUT US
A gaming group started in late 2005 when several members (from all over the world) came together on a long-running forum website called Plothook.net (formally known as Highmoon.net). Several games transformed from a by-the-book format to highly modified versions that became new hybrid systems with completely custom rules and abilities. Ten years later, these faithful players wanted to secure their work and their stories, becoming the basis of these forums.
