I am glad that you like it. :-D

After listening to your talk on the 8 kinds of fun, I am half tempted to try and make a character that specifically appeals to each of the different kind of fun... but you know... time....

Does any one else wish that they would mix factorio with an RPG so your character's stats were based on some sort of internal "soul factory"?

Alias: Bio-Lazer
Low powered hero
Name: Samantha Victory

You used to have to work diligently to keep your girlish figure, you starved yourself with diets, you spent thousands of wasted hours at the gym and you always still felt fat. 
One day while conducting research for your doctoral dissertation you found a reference to Super Lipids, a method Pangloss and other “super geneticists” used to store incredibly large amounts energy in biological mechanoids.  You became obsessed with onlocking the secrets of these Super Lipids, if you could unlock their secrets you could make it so that you wouldn’t need so many fat cells to keep your body going, you could eat all you wanted and not gain any weight!  It would be the perfect diet!  You could sell it and make millions!

You bought a disembodied bio mechanoid arm from the black market to use as a research sample and began experimenting.  You found that the super lipids just had to be injected into a regular cluster of fat cells and kept super saturated with nutrients and that they slowly replaced the fat cells and never gained additional mass.  After a month or two of testing you injected yourself with the Super Lipids.  Everything was going great for about a month (other than your increased appetite… but hey you weren’t going to gain any weight!) you had stopped paying attention to the tissue cultures and gone back to working on your dissertation when you noticed the smoke coming from your closet.  A short adventure with a fire extinguisher later you learned that the tissue samples had spontaneously combusted.  You quickly set aside your homework and started a life or death quest to figure out what was going on with your cells.  It turned out that the “Super Lipids” had to be “milked” for energy, if too much built up they burst into flames… the bio-mechanoids had bio lasers to burn off the excess so it was never a problem.  You couldn’t possibly burn off enough energy to survive.

Luckily the bio mechanoid arm still had a bio laser attached and it had been kept on ice.  You were able to blackmail a medical student to implant it.  Things are going pretty well…

Description: You have a laser surgically implanted in your palm that is fueled with your body fat.  Luckily you have Super Lipids that allow you to store billions of calories without gaining any weight!  Sadly the lipids need to be “milked” for energy every once in a while or you will spontaneously combust, and they require a constant stream of nutrients, so you feel like you are starving…. All the time! 
   You have also picked up a healing factor.

If you have a PS2 you could probably a cheapo copy of Disgaea 2.

I was always frustrated that 3+4 were ps3 exsclusives despite looking like they would run on the ps2. Persona 4 hadn't even come out as the "final" ps2 game yet at that point.

what is the protocol for RPPR group stuff on consoles? Do I just send out friend requests scattershot? I looked a few months ago and there hadn't been established a group on Playstation like there is on Steam.

Forgive my ignorance. Social stuff isn't my forte in certain contexts.

The Vita looks like it can play 2-4...

Ironically have been saving up the last 2 episodes of Brutalists to listen to while doing side stuff in Division.

Disgaea is pretty amazing. Always got frustrated I couldn't play 3-4. 5 is on the ps4!

I really hope to play the next couple of games.... but am not looking forward to having to buy a ps4 just for one game :-(

I picked up Disgaea PC because it looked vaguely final fantasy tactics ish and looked silly... it is amazing... why wasn't I playing this ten years ago when the first version of it came out?!

How would you create a power that allowed you to create a ectoplasic duplicate of yourself when you slept?  It could interact with the physical world and  do anything you could do when you were awake.  If it died you would wake up with the memories of what happened to it.

I was thinking of just going Stress Capacity {health} with range, psychic and unusual... but that doesn't cover seeing at a distance, acting at a distance, etc.

Alias: Mr. Lucky
Name: Mark Walker

Mark has a doctorate in pharmaceutical chemistry, but in this economy he was lucky to just get a job as a pharmacist at Omnicorp’s Corperate office.  After the ideal disappeared the economy’s downward slope became a cliff.  Mark had to find a way to make extra cash just to pay the bills, he stole some supplies from work and found all the information he could find on the Pangloss formula he could download off the internet to start making small batches to sell on the black market… of course he tinkered with the formula… and started taking some himself to get an edge on the cops or on clients who though it would be easier to steal his product rather than pay for it was just… good business sense.

Omnitech discovered the missing lab equipment and Mark has turned to base raiding to find more.

He goes to great lengths not to obscure the actual nature of his powers.
Mark has no idea that his wife (who has a doctorate in Genetic Engineering) is in a different base raiding group.

Super Soldier: Breaking Bad with the Pangloss Formula.
Background: Even a Doctorate in Pharmaceutical Chemistry can’t get you a good job in this economy.
Conviction: My children will have every advantage.
Aspect: Inconspicuousness is second nature to me.
Aspect: It slipped it into my pocket when no one was looking.
Aspect: My clients know when I am going to call them before I do...
Complication [Major]: Time is an illusion.
Complication [Minor]: V. 536-B21 is addictive as hell

Skills: (25/25)

Great (+4):  Science
Good (+3): Academics
Fair (+2): Stop the Clock (A)
Average (+1): Bureaucracy, Resolve

Unique and Strange Skills:

Stop the Clock (14)
Power Tier: Ascendant (-4 Refresh)
Dodge + Unusual: Stop the Clock + Zone (2-0-3))
Initiative [Physical] + Unusual: Stop the Clock, Initiative [Mental] + Unusual: Stop the Clock (4-2-2)
Complication [Major]: Time is an illusion.
Complication [Minor]: V. 536-B21 is addictive as hell
Snag [Minor]: Need regular injections of the formula for the power to work.
Cost: 14 skill points (8 trappings, 5 connections, 5 extras, -4 drawback)
Description: Multiple applications of version 536-B21 of the Pangloss Formula have given you the ability to freeze time.  This allows you to pause a fight and rearrange your friends, ever so slightly, so that they don’t get hit by enemy attacks. 

This particular version of the formula is very addictive, giving the user a euphoric sense of timelessness.  Taking the drug long enough to gain this power confuses the users sense of time.  The ability to use this power slowly fades if you stop taking the drug.

I just assume that everyone is too busy playing Fallout 4 to post that they are playing it...

Have you all read High Rise?  It is an amazing example of the stories Ruin seems to be patterned after.
