The Gadgeteering Classification allows a metahuman to work with advanced scientific theory often decades or even centuries ahead of modern time. There always exists a theme, a specialty at which the Gadgeteer excels at. It is unique among powers as only operating exclusively within the existing natural principles.

What a Gadgeteer creates, though maybe incomprehensible to normal humans, is always real science, and can, theoretically, be reproduced by mundane means. Unfortunately, the rather artistic, inspiration-based way this power works prevents such, especially regarding the most advanced technologies. Many people hope that the appearance of a sufficiently high-rated Gadgeteer might lead humanity into a new Golden Age, perhaps even push us towards a technological singularity.

Gadgeteers are exceptionally proficient at heterodyning with other Gadgeteers. However, Gadgeteers are very prone to getting lost in their work.

Gadgeteering, as well as Physique, are the only two power types that appear unaffected by power nullification and seem to be impossible of Metas to shift into.

The Toybox is and internet forum for all gadgeteers; Hero, Villain, or Neutral, doesn't matter. Atrocity, Merkabah, Mechorror, and Dusu are the only ones banned.

Tiers Edit

Gageteers have a unique rating system, being classified as X/Y with X describing the speed at which the Gadgeteer can work and Y the extent to which they can surpass current technology.

Beyond this there are certain limitations to what gadgeteers can do at each tier:

Apex Tier (might be capable of doing teleportation, nano-tech, force-fields OR energy-to-matter/matter-to-energy stuff, if it’s part of his/her specialization)

God Tier (can do any one of those reliably, but is at best average at the others)

Transcendent Tier (can do any of those and more)

Additionally higher tiers generally have a broader and more versatile specialty. For instance, this is one potential progression:

Exemplar:         Cars

Paragon:           Vehicles

Apex:                Transportation

God:                  Mobility

Transcendent:  Movement

It should be noted that there are exceptions to this rule of thumb

All gadgeteers are inherently classified as a B-class threat

How it comes about: Edit

What most often leads to the expression of Gadgeteering is having an external vision rejected, but refusing to give up on it without rejecting reality. In that sense, a typical cause for a gadgeteering manifestations similar, but the inverse to a typical contriving trigger.

Therefore Gadgeteering and Contriving are inherently incompatible. It should also be noted thatother powers (Not including Physique Type Abilities) are extremely rare to exist with the gadgeteer classification.
