Yes, we've revamped the powers of the characters, especially powers by characters that were hardly ever utilized in the first place. What is posted in the new Bestowment posts are each character's complete list of powers.
Also, we understand the hesitation, which is why what we have in place for character groupings is just "Reboot Start A". We also have a "Reboot Start B" in case those players who are still on the fence don't come back. So, we're good either way.
ETA: But, yeah, a recap that even states why your character isn't around would be helpful too!
