2D6 EFFECT 2 Catastrophe: Something goes terribly wrong. The GM must decide what, but some ideas are a new and permanent Minor Hindrance, the inability to use powers for several days, or an explosion of some sort. The backlash should be thematic if possible. If the hero tampers with dark forces for his abilities, for example, he might become corrupted or summon something sinister into the world. If he’s a weird scientist the device might explode for 3d6 damage in a Medium Blast Template, or he might develop a Quirk, Phobia, or other “madness.”
3 Backfire: The power succeeds as with a raise but affects a different target with the worst possible results. A bolt hits a random friend, boost Trait increases an enemy’s skill or attribute, etc. If there’s no likely target, he’s Stunned instead. If the power has a Duration other than Instant, it lasts its full term and can only be negated by dispel (the caster can’t voluntarily end it herself).
4–5 Short Circuit: The power fails but the Power Points allocated to it are spent, along with an additional 1d6 Power Points.
6–8 Stunned: The caster is Stunned (see page 106). She subtracts 2 from arcane skill rolls for the rest of the encounter (the penalty remains –2 even if she gets this result again).
9–10 Overload: The character’s synapses crackle and overload with power. He takes 2d6 damage plus the cost of the power in Power Points, including any Power Modifiers the player declared.
11 Fatigue: The character suffers Fatigue.
12 Overcharge: The power draws ambient energy from the air, automatically succeeding against the target with a raise and costing the caster no Power Points!

1. My philosophy as a PbP player: I enjoy writing posts and playing the game, having a good time when others are entertained and having fun posting in response as well. I treat every post IC like it is a scene of a TV show and describe my character's actions; there is always something for my character to do and probably say. Just because my character is in combat, there is no reason to stop role-playing. Any day I can post in reply to what other players have written is a good day.
I have come to value the interactive side of PbP gaming. This is what sustains a game over the long haul, writers that are interested in responding to each other in character while the plot progresses around them. The focus on characterization on equal footing as plot progression is what brings the players fully into the story to make an engaging tale.
2. Experience with PbP: I have somewhere around 60+K posts under my belt in the last 10+ years, if I were to count them all up from the handful of sites I play at. With attrition being the bane of most PbP games, I am not going to just disappear. Myth-weavers represents about 100% of my PbP gaming now, but I have decided to branch out play more Savage Worlds.
3. Expectations for playing, and what I want from the experience: I am hoping for another good game with people I can enjoy playing with. I like the interactions with interesting character development that I hope will come out in a more narrative style of game. I hope to improve my writing and develop some relationships with some new players, potentially making some good friends. Most of all, I want to enjoy the experience.
4. Frequency of Posting: On a normal basis, I can post once per day, 3-5 days a week on weekdays. I generally do not post more than once a day on principle, allowing others a chance to reply or react during their daily routine as well. I also let people know when I am not available from more than 48 hours outside of weekends
5. Experience with Savage Worlds: I have only played the Deluxe rules set for a couple years, a few games in PbP and one game in RL. So far SWADE looks about the same with a few minor updates, and my Interface Zero game jsut converted to 3.0 and SWADE.
