OOC: ignore me. I thought we were talking about the pumping station door. Didn't realize there were two doors.

Re: Small Town Heroes (OOC/Recruitment Closed)

It's only day one of a 180 school year. Do you want all 180 days to be this detailed? Frankly, this is why I was doing whole conversations with my NPCs. So the story involving kids in a super school could take up most of the posting time. But I was told not to. I decided that meant keep those conver...

No one said anything about real world. Just more modern than the flip phones that were state-of-the-art when the game was written.

Re: Small Town Heroes (OOC/Recruitment Closed)

Sarah went to bed. I'm waiting for you all to catch up. (And then I'll do like 5 scenes that take place a 3am. :) )

On a tangent, I was thinking the phone should just be assumed. You pay EP for apps that are "better" than stock apps. Secure IM is a 1 EP app. GPS with altitude is an app. etc.

Re: Small Town Heroes (OOC/Recruitment Closed)

Not me. I made a vapid fashionista who will outgrow her vapidness specifically for the cruelty of kids. Bring 'em on. I expect Lucy to ditch Sarah and possibly become a rival.

Oh, and Sarah has no special interest in classes. Maybe a communications class but that wouldn't be a freshmen class.

Well, anyone with well-off or better wealth would still have a car, possibly a rental from their insurance company. Or replace a cell phone in a day.

There's no need to overthink this. I've never seen anyone use their minivan to get to an active crime scene.

Re: [OOC...MnM 3e] Civitas Crew (Recruiting until 1/23- 5 days)

If it were me, I wouldn't charge points for a cell phone unless you plan on using it for remote hacking, etc. "Everybody" has a smart phone so it doesn't make much sense to charge a point for having one. Just like you don't charge a character points for their secret ID having a car or a house. Exac...

Re: [OOC...MnM 3e] Civitas Crew (Recruiting until 1/23- 5 days)

The problem is a computer only costing 2 and smart phone costing 2. The concept of a smart phone goes beyond that. Frankly, a supplement to update modern equipment is called for. My problem with making a cell phone 5 EP is that's a 1 whole point. Is a cell phone worthy of being an Advantage? Or of b...

Quick question - how many Equipment Points is a full featured modern smartphone? Looking at the book you could make a case for 5 or more.
I really don't think it matters. An audio recording device isn't worth 1 EP these days.

Sleep? What time is it? I assumed we were waiting for the casino to open.

"If you do so, don't forget to include the fact that we did not go in and find out if anything is still living in there," Adeleth says. "Even if every voice you are hearing is a spirit of the dead, that doesn't mean the room is safe for the living."
