    Understood, but it would be a fluffy role playing thing. I don't mind role playing whatever till Jemal is back on track.

    And Laura thought she was just taking a gander at the casino, yes?

    So, yes, if we know it's just filler, I've no worries. But since it's GM prerogative to turn assumed safety into an encounter, I was just trying to be cautious.

    Yeah you're right, I didn't thought it that way. Guess we need to hurry before the wolf comes back

    Hopfully will get a chance to update tonight. I've apparently lost my 3e book during the move, so using srd, and am still busy between cleaning/unpacking/working/doctor visits...
    Damn pandas aren't helping with the little spare time I have, either.

    ... alright, I'm fualable!

    Still, she would be a suspect as soon as the guard says "she split her coffee on me." an oddity worth looking into if nothing else, unless she has a habit of doing so that is, given it happened right before a major breath she would get looked into, and taking a sick day after looking fin while spilling coffee just demands more questions.

    She will be a person of interest no matter what ;3

    I've been thinking about something Zerith and I were talking about a while back, and I have a bit of an alteration to propose, primarily for Uomo.

    We were talking about how most of the characters have fairly new mutations and/or are new to the scene (New meaning a few years), explaining why they are learning/growing, expanding their powers and learning more skills.
    Uomo, on the other hand, has had Centuries to hone his skills and for his mutation to become stable, and Felix at least decades. We've already come to an agreement on how Felix's powers could grow, so this is primarily for VV With the other player's input).

    I have two suggestions : Either we come up with an in-game explanation for him suddenly learning more and/or his powers changing, OR..
    I could 'retconn' Uomo's power level up a few, and just slow down your progression. Give you an extra, say 15-25 points and 1-2 PL, but then your character would grow much more slowly (At least till the others caught up). We'll just say he hasn't been 'feeling himself' lately, but he's pulling it together now.

    I think it would be a good solution b/c it would show him being more experienced IC.
    Alternatively we could just say that he sat around for so long he 'lost his edge', and now that he's out in the field again, with such young exuberant allies, he's finding out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks.
    Thoughts?

    So you are giving me pp in advance? Neat! I can't say I disagree with that.
    I must note something: Uomo's only mutation is the ability to heal quickly and not of age. I'm not saying its easy to control, or that he hasn't already mastered it completely, but his skill set, his effectiveness as a secret agent, strategist and in combat is not due to the mutation per se, its training and weapons. His mutation doesn't influence his abilities and skills. I could add some other advantages or skills to reflect his superior training and insight, cultivated over centuries, that sound right?

    yeah, basicly it's that Uomo is a veteran surrounded by newbies, meanwhile, he is (in practice) on par with them, and as you said he is power light: his power has no real active component to learn, and yet he is not truly showing the edge of centuries of experience while still having a body at it's peak physical state. give a 75 year old vet a 20-30 year old's body and its shocking what could be don, we're talking quadruped digits here!)

    He is good, damn good even, but he is not on the level you would expect for someone with a tenth his experience, you could easily use the points to flesh out his skill set and past experiences, I'm sure Jemal would be thrilled to give you a few extra PP if you gave him some fluffy talents/skills, like stave fighting (and other dated talents that he has gained over his many life times, muskets perhaps?). not saying spend all of them that way, but he has been around since before black powder, I'd expect him to have a massive library of proficiencies, both martial and civil in use, meanwhile, given every thing he should know by this point, his list of talents is very narrow
    (I would expect his fighting, for example, to be around 6-7, mayby supper human and at 8-9 to reflect his massive experience? I don't think anyone on the planet could realistically challenge his fighting experience, expect, maybe, CHUCK NORRIS! )

    Not saying he would be a master in any either, but I think he would know how to do tones

    I'm not sure that front-loading an entire PL or two would be a good idea. But a ton of extra skills, half of which are archaic,and maxed Fighting make sense.
