    First Real Thread but I'm hoping you find my style of nerd and monty haul GMing entertaining.

    Today is April 2nd 20XX. Today is the day that Earth gained solid confirmation that we are not alone.
    A massive vessel appeared near Earth that quickly moved to the L2 Lagrange point. A message has been sent to every human being old enough to have started puberty. Each of them has a choice to make.

    Greetings,
    We are the Etreni, we have been selected to deliver wonderful news!
    Your race has developed to the point that you have been determined worth the cost of quantum psionic enlightenment. The Psionic Regulation Field around your star system will be disabled over the course of the next year. You may now choose to develop your Quantum Signature naturally or you can select to have your Quantum Signature development accelerated by opting to take part in our Quantum Crystallization Program. Please make your decision now.


    A few moments pass as you process the words that feel burned into your brain. You can feel a little something in your mind waiting for a response.

    Vote 1: Who are you?

    [ ] Taylor Redding(Male) You receive the message while relaxing on your patio on a day off work. In the later half of your twenties with a job at a call center has left you somewhat starved for excitement and entertainment, a little out of shape too. At least it pays the bills and isn’t as bad as the other hellholes you’ve worked at. Still a lack of free time and social life has made you both love and hate a lazy day off. Unfortunately a chiming sound ringing from inside your head has ruined your lazy afternoon.

    [ ] Edwin Rhyse (Male) You receive the message while working on your Warhammer figures. The rare nerd who has turned his hobby into a career by being good at two things. Handcrafting and presentation. You may have never had a girlfriend but, honestly that’s more due to you enjoying geek and nerd culture to a near obsessive degree than any sort of social awkwardness. You just haven’t found many friends willing to geek out like you that don’t live on the internet. Of course none of those things will fix the now shattered Titan figure due to psychic doorbells.

    [ ] Terra Attier (Female) You receive the message while reading the most recent issue of Shonen Jump. Your part-time job as a hotel clerk supplemented by online donations for your manga translations keeps you fairly comfortable. Though honestly you wouldn’t have to eat so much ramen if it weren’t for your habit of commissioning combat rated copies of your favorite fictional weapons. Then again the time you beat the crap out of that creep with the replica Kanshou and Bakuya made the cost worth it.

    The Tabletop nerd and the anime girl would both think that natural development would be better, I'd think, because of the tropes involved in the mediums.

    Seems like an interesting quest though.

    Thanks, I'm rather excited to do this. I haven't been able to do my GM thing in a while.
    Yeah Natural development is slower but allows for truly custom abilities and never really stops growing, whereas Crystallization is a big power jump to begin with but is mostly static, unless you manage to exploit or leverage your choice into further growth munchkin style.
