Yeah, someone who has a power like that needs to be a main character, like Nick (the character) is. Their power can’t just be ignored, and I can’t think of any limitations that would really solve the problem, aside from making the power almost completely useless.August 12, 2007 at 3:53 am #315646
I, personally, would just flat out not allow the power. Sorry, but that is something so powerful it could ruin any story we have set up so far. Plus, time travel is almost always lame. There are many more powers out there, and I’d suggest of new one. Of course, Lech has final word on this.August 12, 2007 at 4:37 am #315656
That’s up to Mess de la Fritz, if he ever decides to check the pm I sent.
Time travel lame? Yeah, that’s why Hiro also teleports. If it does get used, it’ll have to be limited and the person would probably serve as a comedic part during the city battle. A robot converges on the time traveler. He uses his powers and sends himself forward in time and, say he can only go forward a minute, he’ll only appear in the same place and nothing changed. And the robots still converge on him.August 12, 2007 at 7:55 pm #315860
We were thinking you could only go back in time about 5 seconds or so, and it would use a lot of energy, so if you were wounded or really tired you couldn’t use it. Also, if you get shot or die you can’t just go back in time and be alive. You couldn’t go forward in time, only backwards. Also, time manipulation could be freezing time for 10 seconds or something.August 14, 2007 at 3:09 pm #316426
Lech, slight problem. I am more than 400 miles from home, I only have webcam and my mum’s laptop. I’m not going to be able to make a film by the 15th (tomorrow). I doubt I’ll be able to get internet access again while I’m on holiday so you’ll be lucky if I get something done and uploaded by the end of the month!
Sorry about that.August 14, 2007 at 4:02 pm #316465

I think he was talking about September, so you’re probably fine.August 19, 2007 at 8:28 pm #318233

Okay guys, yeah, I agree now that Time Manipulation is a very big power, one which could put all others to shame
So, I think that a time limit should be put on the power, you’re right. Like 10 seconds or so, so that the guy can only deal with small problems (eg, baby pram rolling into pond) , rather than massive ones. (eg, earth destruction.)
Also, I’ve been away for a while Lech, but the only pm i got from you recently (7th Aug) was just about the mandatory challenge. I started working out something today, but I should be able to upload a clip very soon.
So, 10 second time limit? what do all of you lot think? I understand that the original choice was a bit far fetched, sorry. Or if Twick wants Time travel, then I could settle for Time stoppage or something entirley different. Give me your thoughts, and I’ll bend to them.August 21, 2007 at 8:38 pm #318757
Twick got Super Strength after one of the other members dropped out so you still have Time travel
Doesn’t matter how long the length is, so long as it shows me you can animate at my level (average) or better.August 21, 2007 at 8:40 pm #318758
Lech, I think that you are better then average at animation.
