    Amazing.

    I am amazed.

    How many are we now?


    I like Neon as the happy go lucky young guy.

    Also, I'm not dead set on Third Person; but I do kind of like it.

    And if there was some day to allude to Thor without saying it; ever. That would be funny, I think.

    Wait, since when can I commune with bears and threat them as equals?
    But I could totally dig being a hobo living illegally in a natural reserve. Maybe when the whole shebang with the plane and stuff happens it will compromise my position, like some forest guard learns that I've been living in the park as a bear for a free home and they cast me out.

    Alright I just saw you do it more than a few times so I figured I would try it. Are you okay with being the weird inexplicable guy? Also I am sure I can write in a Thor allusion that is not hamfisted.

    yeah i can see that as being editable.
    i mean, your still living in the forest and instead of you loving animals, and that's why you help us, your just helping us so the whole situation doesn't alarm anyone?

    is that it?

    because that can work.

    I am more than ok with being the weird, inexplicable guy.


    Just an action thought, at some point I would like to ride JC into battle.

    And/or throw him into battle and have him turn into a bear on impact.

    speaking of throwing, i think there should be at least one occasion where i rip off my own arm or something and throw it at whoever.

    but not often because pain is pain regardless if it grows back.

    I've been practicing my bear art, just for you.

    Can I get a list pm'd to me or emailed (dagothjones@gmaildotcom); with all of your powers, extended or otherwise?

    Yes I can definitely see this working
    "lol why did they throw their own teammate right to us? OH GOD I AM BEING CRUSHED AND MAULED BY A BEAR! JESUS CHRIST!"

    I think we need a name for this tactic.

    I was thinking "Fastbear Special".

    im alright with that if not just to have a more fluent method of tossing ideas around, while posting more definite concrete ideas here.

    and people won't mad at us for circle jerking if we accidentally do that (although i'll try not to.)

    but ultimately it's up to everyone to decide.
