For someone who has superpowers, and relatively new powers at that, Sydney doesn’t use them a whole lot. Sure she’s gone flying a few times and sometimes hovers awkwardly in the air with the flight orb, but it seems like she’d be using them all the time. Especially the Lightbee function of the comm-ball.

She’s sort of a Harem light when she’s using it. Very light since there’s only one dupe and it can’t touch anything. Also while Harem experiences everything from all 5 of herselves simultaneously, Sydney has to shift focus between them, kind of like how you have to refocus your eyes between the bug splats on your windshield and signs on the road.

Oh and before anyone points out the seeming inconsistency in panel 9 (bottom left) remember Sydney’s truesight doesn’t work through Holo-Halo. Although this just occurred to me as I’m writing this. If Holo-Halo can stick her hand through someone’s head, couldn’t she have just pushed her face through the dirty skylight? Sydney didn’t think of that either I guess.

I should point out that there is now a Kickstarter running for the Wearing the Cape tabletop Role Playing game. It’s already funded, but obviously pitching in is the easiest way to get your hands on it if you’re interested. Who knows if kickstarted projects like this will ever show up in your local comic/game shop. Sadly I don’t have time for tabletop games anymore, though it would be nice to find a group to play with some time. I suspect it would have to be online though. Someone has got to have cracked the online tabletop thing by now. I know there are a few websites that have tried it, maybe even some stand alone apps, but I’m not aware of a gold standard program that does that stuff, that combines voice chat like Skype or Discord or Google hangouts or what have you with dungeon master tools, dice, map stuff, all that. The most daunting task with a program like that, I imagine, would be implementing all the different game rulesets. Some of them you couldn’t do without licencing stuff, which is a big speedbump. Of course any program like that would have to allow you to program your own rulesets and character sheets, so the community could implement anything they wanted. Obviously if you know of a good solid program that does all this stuff, feel free to share it. Just check the comments first so we don’t get 50 separate recommendations for the same thing. :)

Double res version will be posted over at Patreon. $1 and up, but feel free to contribute as much as you like :)
