Worm CYOA and the Power Lottery Challenge

Zoroastrian
(Verified Lurker at the Threshold)

So I’ve decided to start another thing whilst I wait for some inspiration to hit me. This is going to be my attempt at the Power Lottery Challenge. Linked HERE.
CYOAs linked here: V1, V2, V3, V4, V5

I’ve chosen the Tier 5 Set but with my own twist, If I roll an Omni-Power or equivalent (aka something too strong) I must search through and choose one of its weaker variants instead of getting a free re-roll.
Example: Meta Teleportation would become Marking Teleportation or Remote Teleportation.

As Yuki-Onna Physiology chose my theme for me I limited the stronger powers in a similar way. Divination became Hydromancy, Season Embodiment became Winter Magic, Divine Presence became Magic Aura.

Tada. Now my little creation is basically ready for whatever I decide to do with it. I could start an RP, write an original fic, or drop it into Worm and hope to make a interesting story.

As you can see this could fit in with the Worm CYOAs and aid in the random power thing in one of the later additions. My question is could this be used as a template for the whole Cauldron Power Vials thing? If so how would it fit with some of the other mechanics and would it fit with the Wormverse. Would the Physiology powers make you a Case-53 or a really potent Changer?

If this gives you some interesting ideas for a fic or the tools to help make a bizarre grab-bag power set then I’ve accomplished one of my missions.

Use this thread to discuss mechanics, ideas, and world-building for the Worm CYOA and the Power Lottery Challenge.
If you want to write a story using either the CYOA or the Power Lottery Challenge then hopefully future posts in this thread will help you.
I’m also going to try to plan a fairly decent story utilizing the Power Lottery and CYOA so help would be appreciated.
If you want to post your results or idea snippets then I guess that’s ok too?

Many people dream of having super-powers. Almost every little kid has dreamt of flying like Superman, running fast like the Flash. But, as we grow older in life, we realize that such things are impossible and should just be put to rest.

But, today it is possible. A lab located in [EXPUNGED] has been giving its clients superpowers. As with all great things, there is a drawback. The powers given to you is Random and it is irreversible. You could either end up with a power you like and keep it, or you could end up with a power you hate, but cannot change. Many people started calling it the Power Lottery for its unpredictability.
