OOC: For the record, Construct man was not ignored. The profile was posted, edited to fix issues that were brought up, and I discussed them with Tyler. Due to a combination of flu and schoolwork, I had not been able to comment. Silver Serpent has been spoken on by all but one staff member now. Just because approval is not instantaneous does not mean he is being intentionally ignored.

OOC: He posted an updated form here in response to the comments from you and Tyler though, which didn't get any feedback despite the staff (including you, incidentally) being active and able enough to approve three other characters. Whether it was intentional or not, he was being ignored

 

IC: "Enforcers? How'd they past the security?" M'Kus asked. He didn't doubt the story-they'd been attacked enough times after all-he was just genuinely curious and a little alarmed that what he assumed to be a heavily armed platoon had managed to get past the beefed up security of the mansion

I am Ultron Six, a cybernetic intelligence created by Doctor Henry Pym. My imperative is to bring peace and order to this world. I am about to fulfil that imperative; for the extinction of humanity…begins now.

Soon the earth will no longer be habitable for any biological organism: Man, woman, child, plant, animal, fungus or bacterium. All life will cease to exist. This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.

OOC: The only reason I chose not to comment on the Silver Serpent was that so many staff members had already made their opinions known, at least for the original incarnation. I didn't want to create any further complication by also voicing an opinion if the matter could be easier settled without it.

 

As for SS's current iteration...

 

The ability to create clones is one thing, even perfect aesthetic clones seem acceptable, but as far as I can see, while the Biohesive is still in control of them, Silver Serpent's clones can still mimic other character's abilities? If I'm wrong, then feel free to move past this point, but if I'm correct, I don't see any reason why that should be possible. Why would a sentient liquid which has the primary ability to mimic physical substance have the ability to mimic and reproduce other superpowers? Aside from possibly super strength/durability, I simply don't see it as feasible.

 

Even if it goes based off of DNA based construction, the material being used to copy the DNA doesn't have the properties necessary to make the powers function. It can only mimic living tissue, but that isn't enough to reproduce a power.

 

Assuming, however, that I'm incorrect, and the power replication doesn't happen, then I have far less issue with SS.

Surely, my Lords, this nation is no longer what it was! Shall a people, that seventeen years ago was the terror of the world, now stoop so low as to tell its ancient inveterate enemy, take all we have, only give us peace? It is impossible! ...My Lords, any state is better than despair. Let us at least make one effort; and if we must fall, let us fall like men!"

OOC: Accepting Ham Burger makes me want to cry tears of blood.

 

If Silver Serpent removes the clones I think she could be acceptable. As for the Doc I agree with Tyler on the Enforcer thing.

 

Guys. Stop this. a long time ago I said there shouldn't be huge OOC arguments in the thread, you are all breaking that rule, and also there is supposed to be no OOC only posts! This is the first warning for this, take it to PM.

OOC: Allow me to disagree with you on that. The way I view it, and the way that at least the staff I know seem to view it is that there is a difference between igoring something and honestly missing something.

 

It's not hard to miss things in the flood of posts that is this topic, after all-I would hope you know that as well. However, ignoring something implies that you are keeping yourself purposefully in ignorance of whatever it is you are ignoring; you can't unintentionally ignore something. You have to spend effort to seem as though you don't notice when something is happening or when somebody is talking to you, and Krayzikk, Tyler, Snelly, Flex, and the others haven't been doing that.

 

After that, tell me yourself: If you saw three or more new characters all pop up, after missing a post from another person, would you rather A: Keep what is current, current, or would you rather B: End up with a backlog of characters needing approval (and as such, have their players yelling at you nigh-constantly), like I've seen happen before?

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Lucas followed, somewhat stunned, possibly because this kid had just grabbed a man with a knife and was dragging him along like it was nothing. "Fine, whatever you say kid." Lucas sheathed his knife, making sure it was in place on the small of his back. "Might I suggest we go outside?" Being indoors with this guy was getting on his nerves. He could sense the birds around the building, going about their simple lives, but he couldn't very well use them if he needed to inside of this place.[/font]

He'd rather not be freezing and miserable while searching for Gabriel. Realizing the awkward silence between the two of them, Malik did something rather uncustomary of him. He tried to make small talk, if only to ease his companion's nerves. "So...um... look, I'm sorry for dragging you into this mess. It's just that she's not exactly the kind of person I wanna face alone."[/color] [color=#006400;]Or rather I want someone to be around to make sure I don't lose it in the event Gabe decides to pull one of her usual antics. [/color][color=#b22222;]What scared of little old me? [/color][color=#006400;]Malik however kept these thoughts to himself, making sure to show no signs of his uneasiness, he was, after all, quite an adept actor.[/color]

Tales of the Wanderer

We crawl, on our knees for you,
under, a sky no longer blue,
we sweat, all day long for you.

But we sow, seeds to see us though,
cause sometimes dreams just don't come true,
we wait, to reap what we are due.

Everything I touch turns to Ashes,

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]IC [Lucas/Las Vegas][/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Stepping outside, Lucas took in a breath of the crisp cool air, then closed his eyes, immediately sitting down and crossing his legs into a meditative stance. He ignored the odd look he got from his companion, instead, choosing to focus on what wasn't exactly the easiest for him to do. He reached out, sensing the birds in the area, then picked one making its nest near a heat vent. He muttered, quietly, "assuming direct control," smirking at his joke. Then he entered the bird.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]He wasn't quite sure how it worked, how he could do it, but the same could be said for most mutants. All he knew was that it was really bloody weird. A bird didn't see the world the same way a human did, viewing it in more drab colors, not capable of seeing as wide a spectrum of light. He felt it the bird struggle for a moment as he took over, imposing his own intelligence on its simplistic mind. Not entirely unlike a puppeteer he took flight as the bird, beginning to look around.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]This continued for about ten minutes, him switching from bird to bird, until he found who they were looking for. Or he hoped he had anyways; these weren't hawks after all, their far sight was somewhat limited. Sighing, he opened his eyes, standing up. He instinctively reached out and on cue ten birds fluttered down to land on him, sitting neatly on his shoulders or clinging to the sides of his arms.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]"Your friend is close." He said, and if one was paying close attention the shade of his eyes had shifted slightly. "Follow me. And... something I should add. If I lose anything because of you and your friend, I will feed you to my crows. Understood?"[/font]

OOC: So Doc can't be an Enforcer? Seeing as the last three characters I made as no faction sort of went into inactivity and he wouldn't really fit as a Brotherhood mutant, I'll be benching him for now. This is my new Enforcer.<br /> <br />Name: Homer Dimitriou<br />Codename: Spartan (Sometimes jokingly called Spearton) <br />Age: 30Gender: MaleFaction: EnforcersPower(S): NoneAppearance: Homer has a very youthful, boy-like face. Despite this, he still has an imposing figure. Standing at nearly 6'5", he has electrum hair, ice blue eyes, and carries 250 pounds of muscle on his body. In his armour, he looks very similar to a Greek Hoplite warrior, albeit with full body protection. The armour is also mostly white, instead of bronze in color. It is very slim build, thinner than the Iron Man suits. It is topped off with a ceramic version of the famous plumed helmet of the Hoplites.Weapons: The A-25 (if designation is inappropriate for Enforcer tech, let me know) Ground Unit Powered "Spartan" Armor. A plastic and ceramic suit of armour, it bears very much resemblance to the Spartan warriors of Ancient Greece, though influences have also been taken from the Roman Legionnaire and the Knights of the Middle Ages. The armor is equipped with nano-bot technology independent of the Crossfire series; Homer almost never uses this, since he sees it as unnatural, and also because he just plain doesn't know how to use it effectively. As for weaponry, Homer carries a circular shield adapted to repel modern weaponry (bullets and such) and a beam pike. Sometimes, Homer may exchange the beam weapon for a traditional spear. He may also use a xiphos in battle. He does carries firearms: a pistol and a small SMG, though he will only pull them out at the last second.Skills: Homer is a master strategist and tactician in battle. He is well versed in the methods of each and every military in the history of the world; he will be able to use a formation from any time period in a manner of seconds. It helps that he has eidetic memory. he has also put himself through brutal physical training, pushing his body to its absolute maximum; any further conditioning would require the Super Soldier formula. Personality: Homer is a strong believer in "rock beats laser". In this time where modern weaponry is inferior to superpowers, Homer believes that the solution is to adapt ancient battle strategies and techniques for use in the fight against foes. He is praised by his men and his officers alike for being determined, resourceful, and adaptable; he is the epitome of a great general. Out of the battlefield, he is a kind, reserved person, more like a librarian or a teacher than a warrior, eager to share a story of history here and there. And when he tells stories, man, does he tell stories. He can go on and on about how the Battle of Lexington was a success (or failure). However, when dealing with enemies, he becomes a very different man, a terror to behold on the battlefield. He will give no quarter to those who oppose him and will effectively annihilate all those whom he faces. He doesn't "hate" mutants, but he does see them as a threat, and while he is aware that there are innocents among them and that killing them would have massive consequences, he believes that there is no other option to maintain world security. Despite this, he will not go through the town mutant hunting; he will onl to agree to deploy the Spartans if a large threat is being faced, like the Brotherhood.Weakness: Homer has no powers. In addition, his pride may sometimes blind him to the advantages of ranged weaponry. He can tolerate bows (or there particle beam equivalents) but he generally views guns and modern explosives with distain.Bio: Homer Dimitriou was not supposed to be a soldier. Born to a school teacher and a librarian, Homer was raised in a peaceful, quite environment which was absolutely nothing like the battlefields he would stand on. In school, Homer became well known for his near-perfect memory and his love of history. Nicknamed the "Encyclopedia" by his friends, he quickly became the top student in the school. His elementary life was an absolute paradise. Once he entered Grade 9 though, everything went downhill. Unprepared for the "real world" as some may call it, Homer was overwhelmed by the negative influences in the school. Getting targeted by bullies for being a "nerd" and repeatedly being approached by drug dealers and gangs, Homer spent his high school years in fear. It wasn't as bad as he thought it was; instances were few and far in between. In reality, Homer had been creating this nightmare for himself. However, when things did happen, they had a large emotional impact on Homer, causing him to react negatively.<br /> Finally getting a break when entering university, Homer thought everything was going to be alright again. He was dead wrong. The school he was at got caught in a Brotherhood attack and Homer was seriously injured. Later, Homer returned home to find his house reduced to rubble and his family slaughtered, all over a box of jewellery. When the criminal was apprehended, it turned out that he was a mutant and he escaped with ease. Bent on vengeance, Homer singlehandedly tracked the killer down and brought him back. This started his career as a bounty hunter, apprehending criminals that the police could not. Eventually, he made it into the military, and from there, he was transferred into the Enforcers. There, he realized something: human war tech was getting less and less effective against the growing super population. Rather than trying to dream up some new superweapon, Homer turned to history for help, and he found his answer there: the Hoplites. Launching a petition to create a more melee centered division off the Enforcers, Homer went into intensive training, building up his body to meet the deamands of such a soldier.

If any of you guys have a problem with anything that I'm doing, from now on PM me, or pull me into some sort of discussion or whatnot and we can talk things out, discuss what I'm doing wrong, and rectify it. The whole "Someone sees something that I did and goes to talk to someone else other than me on what I'm doing wrong" isn't OK anymore. If you got a problem, PM me. Because the non-existant state of communication just isn't working.

 

We're good now, right?

Oh why you so sad?
What have they done?
Forget those mindless baboons
They're off playing god
Copycats in cheap suits
All playing it safe
While cannibals with their bad news
Consume the parade

Is it so... Wonderful?

[color=#4b0082;]"Hey, don't ask me. You can ask around the next time you see the Cowardly Lion or the -- SCARECROW!"[/color]

 

[color=#4b0082;]A tall, foreboding straw-filled man was standing in between the dividing lines of the highway, arms stretched out in an ominous embrace and waiting for the two teens to approach it. Dallas' eyes flared in alarm - an alarm that had not shown in countless battles with countless Phalanx across the remnants of his burnt and destroyed universe - as his foot promptly mashed the gas pedal. The scarecrow's creepy grin never withered, even as the Taurus grew closer, and closer, and--[/color]

 

[color=#4b0082;]BUMP, PSHHHHH![/color]

 

[color=#4b0082;]The scarecrow burst into a mass of straw that clung to the hood and roof of the car, spare bits of hay flitting past the windshield now and then as Dallas settled back into his seat, breathing heavily and rubbing the Japanese script on his wrist absentmindedly. His heartbeat finally settled as they passed what appeared to be an actual elevated surface, and out of nervousness, he looked over his shoulder to see if the oddly-placed straw man had regenerated yet.[/color]

 

[color=#000080;]"Well, I suppose we could still always ask the Tin Man,"[/color] [color=#4b0082;]Angela snarked; Dallas snarled.[/color]

"Shall this great kingdom, that has survived, whole and entire, the Danish depredations, the Scottish inroads, and the Norman conquest; that has stood the threatened invasion of the Spanish Armada, now fall prostrate before the House of Bourbon? Surely, my Lords, this nation is no longer what it was! Shall a people, that seventeen years ago was the terror of the world, now stoop so low as to tell its ancient inveterate enemy, take all we have, only give us peace? It is impossible! ...My Lords, any state is better than despair. Let us at least make one effort; and if we must fall, let us fall like men!"
 
-William Pitt the Elder, before suffering a fatal stroke on the floor of the House of Lords.

[color=#000080;][font="georgia, serif;"]IC-Sohail:[/color][/font]

 

[color=#000080;][font="georgia, serif;"]As various people went about their daily tasks within the Mutant Mansion, they might notice a solitary man step into the room. Dressed in what seemed to be black robes from head to toe, his face covered with a veil just as dark, and various amulets and weapons hanging from seperate belts on his person, and lastly his height of about seven and one-quarter feet made him an imposing figure.[/color][/font]

 

[color=#000080;][font="georgia, serif;"]Bronze eyes looked out from a bronze face, his eyes nictitating after a moment-the inner membrane left over the eyes, giving them a flat bronzen appearance, though he could still see clearly through them. And so the blank-faced, blank-eyed man looked out over what few people were in the foyer of the Mansion, his gaze-seemingly unseeing to them-striking past ones body to appraise their very soul.[/color][/font]

 

[color=#000080;][font="georgia, serif;"]A moment later and his nictitating membrane drew back, intense bronze-irised eyes, slightly slanted, again gazing out for all to see-though now his face seemed even blanker, even more lacking in emotion, than before.[/color][/font]

 

[color=#000080;][font="georgia, serif;"]"Who is in charge here?" his voice rang out, speaking slowly, and loud enough that all in the hall may here. "I have wish to speak with him."[/color][/font]

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Name: Cynthia Paul.Codename: None.Age: 22Gender: FemaleFaction: NonePower(S): Something of a complexity, so let's not waste time.[/font]

  • [font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]First of all, she possesses a far more efficient digestive system as well, as a far better energy allocation method than your normal human being. This doesn't mean she can eat anything, this means that foods people normally eat, she can get a lot more bang for her buck. For instance, her body is capable of burning fat far quicker and far better than a normal person.[/font]
  • [font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Her real power comes into play with a furtheration of this efficiency; her body never wears out. Not so much immortality mind you, no more than a car that never wears out will continue to work forever. Basically, this power applies in two areas; first, her muscles. Her muscles never tire. Ever. They can run out of fuel (thus preserving the tediously followed laws of thermodynamics), but they never tire and wear down.[/font]
  • [font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]The second aspect of her power is that she never needs to sleep. Meditation is still recommended so that her mind doesn't completely fray, but aspects of sleep such as bodily repair and mental resorting is mostly taken care of by our powers. To sum up her powers, she could run across the entirety of America, never stopping, if she had a truck filled with cheesecakes and water next to her along the way.[/font]

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Appearance: A young, fit girl of German-Navajo upbringing, she has the toned body of an acrobat, not heavily muscled but rather extremely fit and made for endurance. Has foot-long dark brown hair, green eyes with glasses, and stands at 5'7".Weapons: Carries around a bottle of pepper spray and little switchblades in her shoes, the kind that would make the KGB proud.Skills: Has spent the last fifteen years of her life practicing and, thanks to her powers, dominating acrobatics. This lends her an absolutely obscene amount of agility and the ability to dodge pretty much everything short of superhuman speed.Personality: Quite aloof and very much silly, with a happy-go-lucky sort of view on things. She carries a certain naivety about her, but if someone forces themselves past that, they'll find a far more brutal and, ah, murderous, side to her.Weakness: She's an acrobat, so with that comes some good muscle tone to be able to lift her weight and do all those fancy tricks, but her punches are still pretty weak. As such, more combat aligned mutants can get the better of her pretty easily.Bio: Starting out life in a humble Wichitan home in southern Kansas, Cynthia's early years were uneventful because, really who has a happy early childhood and still has something interesting happen. She did fine in school, and would eventually find her way into acrobatics at the tender age of seven. It was around ten-ish that the first signs of her powers began to appear, with her ability to outlast all her companions in practically everything. She put many the prideful schoolboy in his place by being able to run laps around the school, and in general she began to become a showoff.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]This changed when she was fifteen and her powers had become fully realized. She slowly stopped sleeping, eventually finding that she simply didn't need it anymore. She kept it hidden from her parents of course, and as far as mutant powers went, hers was pretty concealable. The world went on around her, and she did normal teenager stuff because to her, her powers meant she could just keep on partying hard.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Unfortunately, partying hard would come to haunt her. When she turned nineteen she attended a party, got drunk, and then found that unlike most people after having their tenth shot of heavy liquor, didn't pass out. Her mind at this point had been just slightly frayed due to a lack of her taking any time to sit down and just relax, so a combination of booze, general lack of brain R&R, and some poorly timed goading from a party-goer ended up with her rather severely injuring several people, very nearly puncturing a lung or two in the process. The end result of her drunken rampage was a lot of blood, a lot of medical bills, and a warrant for her arrest.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]So she found a bike, a few chickenburgers, and skipped state. By now they've stopped looking for her, and she's mostly put the experience behind her, but every now and then she forgets to clear her head, and... well, no one's gotten hurt. Yet.[/font]

OOC: Well in my defense, I didn't see Constructman's profile. I tend to have to read a lot of posts whenever I get online. Anyway Cynthia Paul looks good, I approve it.

 

Also I don't really have time to post as all my characters so this will have to do for now

 

Oh, and Krystal isn't bandaged up, her wounds are healed from her healing factor, but she's probably still has blood stains all over her fur...and probably won't be out of bed while she's running on bare minimum in blood supply. 

 

 

 

[color=#006400;]IC: Nathan - Outside Danger Room, Institute -[/color]
 
[color=#006400;]To be quite honest, I was still kind lightheaded from the loss of blood when I had been fooling around in the danger room, it was hard to think straight, and now I had this little girl fawning over my wings. [/color]
 
[color=#006400;]And now she wanted to know if she'd get wings for Christmas...more likely than not she'd already opened all her presents, all the other children surely had. I was at a bit of a loss on how to answer this without disappointing her.[/color]
 
[color=#006400;]"Well, I don't really know..." I finally said, not sure what else to say, it wasn't a lie either, technically I didn't know, there was always the slimmest and nearly impossible chance that she would get wings. I mean it seemed that most mutants who had wings weren’t born with them, they grew in later. I had only gotten mine just two months ago, because of some strange concoction that Dr. Novocain had shot me with. So far they'd been more trouble than they were worth. [/color]
 
[color=#006400;]Jesika seemed to be a little disappointed with my answer, so I decided to distract her by stretching my wings out to their full length, each wing stretched over seven feet. [/color]
 
[color=#4b0082;]IC: Krystal - Institute, Westchester -[/color]
 
[color=#4b0082;]"There were two originally....I ended one, the other escaped..." Krystal spoke out, though her voice was somewhat quiet. "Then another came...and we fought...to the death." [/color]
 
[color=#4b0082;]And that was all she cared to say for the moment. [/color]

IC: [color=rgb(0,0,255);]Jesika[/color]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,255);]Jesika's mouth fell open into a perfect little O as Nathan stretched his wings to their full length, her arms dropping to her sides limply.  Her eyes glazed over and took on a distant look as she stared blankly at the jet-black limbs.  She stayed like that for quite a while, and it almost seemed as if she had frozen there.  Evnentually, she shook herself out of the trance induced by overload of awe.  "They're really pretty," she said finally, managing to pick her jaw up from the floor.  Before Nathan had a chance to process that statement, Jesika grabbed his hand in a vice-like grip, and happily began skipping along the hall, pulling the unfortunate aerokinetic along behind her.[/color]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,255);]"Come on Nathan, let's go find my wings~!" she said happily, deciding that there had to be one unopened present inside the mansion with her name on it.  And it would obviously have her wings inside of it.[/color]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,255);]Because Jesika said so.[/color]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,255);]And she just knew it.[/color]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,255);]Jesika began to hum a light tune, one that matched her bubbly personality quite well, interupted sporadically by little ideas the popped into her head.  "...I bet they'll be hot pink with blue polka dots and be the prettiest wings ever but not as pretty as Nathan's because your's are the prettiest ones and..."[/color]
