OldManMeteor ,cause the collars would make more sense if they are releasing wave lengths to mess with the brain. Plus think of it similar to shock collars type thing.
I've seen people miss the point once in a while, but you could be in the Olympics of missing the point. Do you have selective memory? Or are you ignoring the whole post just because? It baffles me. Did you even read it? Or did just saw something you brought and ignored the rest? Can you explain it to me.... They way your brain works is an enigma

I've gotten two reported posts in here over the past couple days. I recognize this thread is made to try reviving activity for the RPG forum. But cut it on the personal attacks. Next post I see get reported or tagged in here will lead me to lock this thread up.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for
OldManMeteor,one I only hit what I could explain quickly while taking a quick break while welding. I plan to address the entire post when I get home. And two drop the attitude and stop trying to belittle others. It doesn't make you look good or big and bad. It just hurts your reputation.

I'm treating you in the just measure of your worth. I don't really care about getting banned, I don't plan to play in the forum and if you allow me the easy quote "I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation". I'm not here to make friends, I was just getting cringe from watching this thread flail around aimlessly so I try to give some advice and I was given a dumb reply for my efforts.
You only "hit what I could explain quickly" was totally and completely missing the point of my post. Let me explain it in simple words so you can get it.
Discussing how the powers are blocked is a small detail if you don't know the technology level of your world by heart.
So you trying to still push a small detail like that is clearly and indicator of you missing the point. And know you try to save face saying you will answer the other points (All the points) later.
I really don't care about getting banned or being nice. I know most of the people involved in the RPG section right now and most of them don't understand basic reasoning and logic, that was quite clear in the Old AV. I had to be clear, concise and even brutal to get my point across. And I stated earlier I don't really mind being banned, is not like I plan to play. Not that I'm an active user in the forum to begin with.
I left because everytime I tried to give an opinion I was either assaulted or faced with a dumb unreasonble answer. There is a clear bias against me and I don't give two craps about it because I don't actually care about this RPG section (I'm admining in another forum that is more rewarding and less plagued by idiocy) If you try to help them they bite your hand, if you don't follow their asenine logic.
To be honest last year I almost knew by the minute that they would reboot the RPG forum sooner or later (I said the activity would die out around January or February, I just missed by 1-2 months) Because of certain disruptive elements without knowledge of limitations or proper storytelling. I'm happy I abandoned the sinking ship while I could.
Unless there is a change of direction and proper limitations to certain users this iteration of the RPG forum in also doomed from its inception.
Not to barged in. I know you two are from Vice Verse, Kuma (oldmanmeteor) and HungryHunter/Justalittlegirl (Prophet), are trying to give advice. However, the personal attacks were unneeded. The folks are trying to reboot the forum and stuff from the past disputes doesn't need to be here. It's time to move on.
If you are not playing, you don't need to comment if you can't be civilized.

10 hours ago khorne said: It could be a stun grenade, water jet, a gas, tranquilizers, harpoon, netting. There would need to be a plethora of methods for supressing and capturing the super people
Also what should we call our characters? I don't really like calling them special users. Here are a few ideas I came up with; variants, the afflicted.
What should we call the anti special force? I have two names I think could work: The Iron fists or The Black hats.
10 hours ago shadowchaos said: Well I don't like the idea of a blanket term. Cause different cultures would have different types of names. Like Japanese might use Susengumi for their police force. But for the power users a blanket term I would agree with is Homo Superior with every culture having their own nicknames for them.
10 hours ago newtype said: I like the blanket term because it's nice and Latin like the scientific names for animals and plants
9 hours ago shadowchaos said: Well that's one of terms considered for use for the next stage of human evolution.

The main thing I want to aim for is us to have fun with our characters. Also writing them as well, that is has been missing for the vice for a very long time. Writing is suppose to be fun, and not feel like a job, because when that happens the will to write fades
9 hours ago sonata said: I just got home, I'll be writing put the details in full soon;)

2 hours ago newtype said: I also have an idea i think we should incorporate. You know how legendary mythological weapopns tend to be the most OP because of all that godly magic and what not. What if it was all just very hypped alien technology. THere are plenty of things that bsuggest certain myths and stuff were possibly aliens visiting. Especially some stuff about nukes bveing used in this one culture's mythology.
about an hour ago newtype said: Basically think about excalibur and Avalon mde by the faeries and the Lady of the Lake. So under this concept they would be alien tech who's functions would be based off the myth in a scientific way. Like Avalon stimulates cellular regen or has a magnetic field.
But caliburn which is a weapon made by man would still be magic and no problem there because not too much is associated with its capabilities.
Spears of norse myths which auto aim could be alien tech spears with automatic targeting systems
Balor's Eye could be a device that transmutes organic matter to stone.

End, you can't just throw alien tech into this. That's instantly gamebreaking if we're keeping people to single powers. And really pulls away from the theme of "normal but suddenly people with powers".
I've gotta somewhat agree with Prophet_of_Plague, on this. It's game breaking but also before we start throwing in aliens and what not we need to take care of the planet we are currently on. Adding those items seem like a complicated and pointless step.
