Indeed! I figured the best way to demagnetize a magnet is to strike the magnet really really hard. So I'm going to try that approach first! If that doesn't work, I'll have to fall back on just being the bigger magnet. But I cant possibly see myself having rolls that bad.I hear he's playing this guy who goes around demagnetizing "Missile Magnets" named Mario. Is that true, D.? Is that true?! Ha ha! =)
Um, lets try and find another way to solve Mario's Missile Magnet-ness instead of hitting me.Indeed! I figured the best way to demagnetize a magnet is to strike the magnet really really hard.

This made me chuckle. Indeed! =)Also: Don't die on us, Sherwood, we meant to join, not replace your presence here.
Absolutely! As Kaerri mentioned, being a Traverser is something all of the PCs share. As your Game Master, I'm here for the fun, fairness, and memories. =) How does all take place? By sharing. One big reason I wanted this conversation brought here into Fat Gandalf's is to share the concept of your character with others. I've learned in my time in the DM/GM/Storyteller/Referee chair that it's nice to have all of the players involved early on when it comes to new players joining and sharing budding concepts of their characters. This accomplishes a few things I like:Let's bring the character concept to these realms as well, shall we? Think the hint that some combat capabilities should be useful is fair - I tend to begin by creating characters that are rather extreme in the direction where they're headed, and then cut it down until it fits the bill of the rp. So yeah, more things in that regard will be added. Just for the record, I'd like to go for a Traverser - think that was in question somewhere further up? I mean, it's a neat thing that happens to exist mostly here in this game - so I gotta take advantage of that, given the chance!
The Army of Southern Cross is largely seen as humanity's only defense against another invasion so a great deal of people are pro-military. The general mindset out there is, "The Zentraedi (Malcontents) who destroyed 70% of the world are still here trying to kill us and their creators may arrive someday." I would think the answer to Siri's question would be simply, "The very survival of humanity." Now, this doesn't mean every human being should pick up a rifle (the klutzes of our world will probably happily give you reasons why! Ha ha!), the general consensus of those in First World countries under the UEG is everyone should do their part. I imagine the focus of the world in many parts is not just sitting selfishly and doing for oneself, but helping humanity as a whole. Of course, there are baronies and Mad Max-style "kingdoms" out there in the world's many badlands who are there to take what they can, preferably by force. Some of the big countries out there, I imagine, include exile as one of their punishments for crimes. So it becomes, "Either help humanity survive or die in the wastelands" for some places.Reluctant towards the military as a whole, though there's obviously the need to fight the war that was brought to mankind. Something like "If we all fight, then there's nothing we actually fight for" could be a sentence she'd say.
