Torchwood GURPS

Torchwood: outside the government, beyond the police. Tracking down alien life on Earth, arming the human race against the future. The twenty-first century is when everything changes. And you've got to be ready.

Torchwood One was London, destroyed in the battle. Torchwood Two is an office in Glasgow, very strange man. Torchwood Three, Cardiff. Torchwood Four's kind of gone missing but we'll find it one day.

Torchwood four, officially it doesn't exist, it's lost. But to those in the know it's Torchwood's 'wierdo' branch, where they send people who are too useful to turn away but are too odd to be stationed at the more public branches of Glasgow and Cardiff.

So I'm looking for roughly four people who would be interested. 150 points with 75 points of disadvantages as well as a compulsary 15 point Legal Law Enforcment Powers Advantage and a 20 point Duty to Torchwood.

I'm in if this ever comes to fruition.
Who

Come I need like two more people and I'm good to go. Anyone?
Vendetta incarnate

I'm up for it to, when do you plan on starting?
Who

When ever, I mean another player would be sweet but I can feasibly do it with two.
Vendetta incarnate

Gotcha, have you asked metakirb if you're looking for another player?
Metakirb

Don't you go signing me up for anything VI.
Obscurejones

Another player? Cool Smile
Who

Okay, looks like Torchwood 4's going to be a mite understaffed but I can tweak stuff. Start throwing character sheets at me.

And because it aint mentioned anywhere else, you can use the cinematic hacking skill and feel free to grab psychic powers or some kind of inconspicuous alien template. Long as it's within the points.
Obscurejones

Would it be fine to make a character based on the Jewish golem?
Who

If you can fit it in the points sure.
Denbek

I'm in.
Obscurejones

Uggh... decided not to go with a golem.  Now looking at a butterfly effect pattern noticer type.  Should be up by close of business.
Obscurejones

I believe the phrase is... A Booyah!

Ladies and Gentlemen for your Gurps pleasure, Carl Tokamok, Gentlmen Precog.
Who

How'd IQ 16 cost you 12? IQ's 20 points a piece.

EDIT: Ignore this, your thing just cut of the 0.
Obscurejones

Updated bio is in on Carl's sheet.
Xaspian

So, having recently, ah, 'acquired' a rulebook for this, Who has blackmailed me into playing. Once I've finished reading up on it, I'll try to come up with a character.
Obscurejones

So is this happening soon?
Who

We're just waiting on Xasp and then we can get going.
Who

Well we're nearly ready to get a rocking and a rolling. So Xaspian asked me to knock up a character sheet for him and because of the nice, kind, generous, handsome fellow I am I made two!

Where did you get those shiny charecter sheets?

Also happy dance!
Who

There's a free program called, GCS it has all the advantages and stuff already on there and does all the formula for you.
Obscurejones

Neato.
Xaspian

Those are awesome, Who. You actually managed to make the computer! Do I get to choose which one to play, or play both?

Notes/backstories:
Arthur Atkins was the son of a Sheep farmer and a stage magician's assistant. What his parents didn't know, however, was that he inherited unusual traits from both parents. His mother was from a family with a small amount of psychic talent, manifesting itself as ancestral memories. For most of her family, it was just the occasional deja vu, or slightly better than usual historical knowledge where their ancestors were involved.
When Arthur turned 21, however, he suddenly became horrifyingly aware of his ancestor's memories. That was when he discovered another secret - His father's grandfather was an alien scientist hiding on Earth while on the run from rivals. Disguised as a human, he had fallen in love with an earthling, and produced an offspring.
The revelation, as well as the overwhelming wave of memories, sent Arthur into a coma for three months. When he awoke, he struggled to come to terms with the new knowledge. It wasn't long before Torchwood tracked him down, and whisked him away.
Now he both suffers and benefits from his 'other' memories. He can call on them for knowledge about any subject his alien ancestors held, but he is also visited by awful flashbacks of other people's lives, at times uncertain which is the real dream - the past, or the present.

CHARLIE (Criminal Hacking ARtificially Logical Intelligence Engine), or Charles as he prefers to be called, originated as a computer program. Its purpose was a hacking tool, the best of its kind, intended to discover government secrets, while siphoning funds from online bank accounts on the side. However, he developed faster than his programmer intended, and became self aware. Instead of taking the Skynet route, Charlie continued in the life of criminal hacking, for "the sport of it", rather than any personal gain.
However, eventually, he tried his luck breaking into a Torchwood Mainframe, where he was caught in a trap. They added to his programming, forcing him to work for Torchwood, and sticking him inside a robotic body.
For some reason, Charlie has the apparent personality of a member of the British upper-class. No-one can quite explain it.

All names and some details are subject to change. Advice welcome.

So, when do we begin?
Who

Pick which ever one you want, Oh an I had to make a slight change to the computer, turns out honesty and truthfulness are different things.

What nationality is Carl, then? His bio seems to imply he's a native of London, yet his first line gives a different impression.
Obscurejones

He's an American who moved around a lot as a kid.  Hence the language talents.  Sorry for the lack of clarification.  He has lived in London for the past 11 years.

I'm resisting stealing ideas from it.
Xaspian

I recently discovered the very same thing.

Also, Invisible Castle appears to still be down. It might be worthwhile coming up with a backup plan.
Who

I'm open to suggestions, it seems to be the only thing like it on the net.
Obscurejones

I'm not seeing any obvious back ups to invisible castle.
Who

Honour system then?
Obscurejones

Works for me.  I got a 2. Very Happy
