Depending on your background, you may have varied information in regards to terrestrial threats, powered and enhanced people, and alternate realities. > All of it is true, and at the same time, none of it is. We are the only line of defense against threats that do not fall clearly into the jurisdiction of SHIELD, SWORD, ARMOR or WAND. It is these hybrid threats that combine two or more of these agencies' areas of expertise that AEGIS (Advanced Emergency Global Interdiction Service) is here to combat. > Knowing of the existence of AEGIS itself requires Level 8 clearance.

You will be provided with a replacement ] The Interest Check is here if you have general questions about the RP. This thread will be the OOC thread for the RP. The Casual/Slice-of-Life/Downtime thread is here. The Mission Threads are here: AGL-01 Diplomatic QuandaryAGN-01 Operation Kilgrave Please only submit Original Characters, rather than canon characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I WILL allow players to cameo in canon characters as NPCs as part of their backstories and flashbacks and perhaps if justified in the plot itself, but any such use of canon characters as NPCs should be run by the group in the OOC thread before dropping it in the IC thread. My first post in this thread is my GMed "Near PC" not quite an NPC and not quite a PC since I'm GMing it. Please follow that pattern for your own character sheets. Please hold off on posting any character submissions in this thread until I have that profile up so you can get them in line with what I'd like. PCs need to specify if they initially work for SHIELD, SWORD, ARMOR, or WAND. A few general things about the Character sheets: 1) Pick your High Concept. What's your character's deal? For example Black Widow would be "Deadly Espionage Agent with a Troubled Past" and Tony Stark's could be "Genius Billionaire Playboy Philanthropist in an Armored Suit" This gives everyone a good idea of what to expect from your PC in the RP. 2) Trouble: What gets your character into trouble? For Phil Coulson, it could very well be "Keeps too Many Secrets", and for Jessica Jones "The Past comes back to Haunt Me". 3) Pick up to three Aspects of your character that highlight what they are or what they can do. For example Daisy Johnson (aka Skye aka Quake) could have "I can hack that." as an Aspect, and later, after her exposure to the Terragen Mist she could have "Vibration Control". I'm not using a dice system but I am going to use the Power Grids from the Official Handbook Of The Marvel Universe, to make sure all of the PCs are equivalent in power to each other (which makes it easier for me to place them on the same missions) PCs begin with a rating of two (2) in all six stats for free, and have nine (9) points to spread among them to increase them on a one for one basis, to a maximum rating of seven (7). But beware, I will look carefully at anyone who has a 7 to make sure it's justified, because these people are rare even in the MCU. And please read the link above in regards to the power grids, it'll make your character creation much easier. The six stats that OHOTMU uses are: Intelligence Strength Speed Durability Energy Projection Fighting Skills Next, give us a good idea about your character's skill set. Are they a combat monster? A master infiltrator? A hacker? A scientist or physician? Finally, a quick bio, a picture (either real photo or photo-quality artwork) is required, and at least a vague outline of the PCs personality is required. ONE PC each per player until that PC has played in a mission of some sort, then additional PCs can be independents who feature or are consultants for AEGIS, or even villains (With GM permission and general consensus). This will be the general rule. No making a new character until a previous character has seen play in the RP.
