Please post all OOC, discussions, questions, and APPROVED character templates here.
Appearance: Tall and skinny, his skin has a light blue tint to it, and his ears seem to be flat against the side of his head. It is debatable as to whether or not his eyes ever close, because he usually can keep them open for a very long time. Despite his skinny body, he is decently muscular. His toes are spread out a bit, and he has thin webbing between his toes and fingers.
Typical Clothing/Costume: Monsoon is never seen out in public unless there is a situation. No one is sure if he has a secret civilian identity, or if he hides in his lair when he isn't dealing with trouble. Monsoon wears a helmet of a shark's head, with the mouth open so he can see out the front. He also wears simple, dark blue shorts, but not much else.
Description: Monsoon is all business. He generally hates conversation, doesn't stick around long when he's finished working, and if he does, he is very quiet. He likes to stay focused on the task at hand, and despises those who show off or goof around, though he will not do anything to them unless they truly get in his way.
Occupation: It is unknown whether or not Monsoon has a secret identity. Some believe he may be a lifeguard at one of New Atlantis' pools or beaches.
Superpowers/equipment: Monsoon can control water, which is of great advantage on the island, and especially near the beaches. With this power, he can make water do things it normally wouldn't be able to, such as partially solidify without freezing. He can also transform into water, causing material objects to simply go through him. This also makes him able to grow larger for a limited time, merging himself with bodies of water. He has a shark form, which is a large black shark that swims faster than normal. Finally, Monsoon wields a trident, a beautiful golden weapon that is resistant to scratching.
Extra info: Monsoon has a large lair, deep in an underwater cavern. It has nearly a dozen sleeping quarters, as well as a meeting room, training room, and a large garage for vehicles. Monsoon himself built the lair, hoping to make a group of heroes who would protect New Atlantis from threats. He is now beginning his search for people with powers.

Description: Sue is a cheerful woman who very rarely looks down on anything. She is gentle and kind with younger children, sweet and understanding with others. Sue loves anything bright and cheerful and often "toshes" over little things like a dirty nose.
Occupation:Technically, Sue is retired. She used to work as a nuclear researcher with the plant on New Atlantis. However, she couldn't stand not having something to do so she started volunteering at the neighborhood daycare. She still gets letters from time to time from her previous trainees about certain researches and she replies to them to the best of her knowledge.
Hobbies: Sue loves working in her garden and caring for little children. She also like to sew things when she feels like sitting down.
Superpowers/equipment: Sue used to be a normal human being. Due to her previous radiation encounters and the Atlantien power surge she has found that she can control plants. She can make plants grow faster, die, move, change and so on. She finds it very handy in gardening but doesn't use use it for more then that. She often carries a garden trowel with her because the children like her to play with them in the sandbox and she likes to join them.

I'm kinda new to this whole roleplaying thing on this site, I've roleplayed on other before, so I was wondering if there was a certain way we roleplay here. Do we take turns? Or what.
Well, its sort of turn based. I mean, there's no set turn order, but you sort of go whenever it makes sense for your character to go next. Right now, there isn't any interaction going on between characters, but once there is interaction, the characters will go back and forth. It will become easier to make sense of the turns as we get further into the game.
If you want to get a clearer picture of turns, check out The Orb of Pyritus game, and you can get a sense of how interactions go.
Ah, thank you. I want to tread carefully here because this forums is a lot more organised than the other I am on and obviously needs a higher quality to posts.
Changed my character. I had originally had the concept that is up now, but I forgot about it (because I didn't put it up when it was in my head), but just remembered it randomly. Looking forward to the color in the skies!
I'm waiting on Morvane.
Hey everyone, for future posts, could you put your hero names in the title as well. Such as my post as such:
George Riza/ DaVinci
If your character is not a superhero, no need to worry. If they are, and don't have a superhero identity yet, you can wait until they gain one.
WF is really pissing me off right now. I can't send PMs. Keep getting a blank white page when I click "send" or "preview." It's been doing this for over an hour now. I've tried logging out. I've cleared my internet cache. I even restarted the browser. White page every time.
Have no fear. AnonyMouse is coming, guys, he just has to fist-fight the internet first...
EDIT: Nearly ten hours later and still no luck. I've tried different browsers. I've tried other computers. It's definitely a problem on the site's end. Why it is so strongly opposed to sending a character template to naturemage is beyond me...
Separate names with a comma.
