This is really excellent. Are you looking for feedback and further contributions?

Yeah, more aspects are always good.  And I could do with some feedback.  But even better than feedback would be someone to volunteer to help out with further sorting this list.  Right now it's in an excel spreadsheet.  I'd like to distribute it that way once it's a little better developed so it can include a random aspect picker (which also needs more work).

Many of my contributions will be from the Generic NPC thread, which I probably should have added to my list of links. I didn't, though, so I'll have to compile the aspects myself instead of leaving it to you.

As for feedback: you've listed a few aspects twice. There are also some that are very similar to one another, but I'm only concerning myself with the direct repeats. Here are the ones that I've noticed, in order of appearance:

Avenging Angel
Ex-Con Kinetomancer
Doom Of Damocles
The Temptation Of Power
A Mighty Fortress Is My God
Beauty And The Blade
Helping The Helpless
I Can Feel The Earth Beneath My Feet
The Council Ignored Me, So I Ignored Them
To Serve And Protect
With A Little Help From My Friends

Other problems: capitalization is inconsistent, Ancient Black Court Sorceress is misspelled.

I actually did do a pass to remove duplicates.  But I think I mixed in a few more aspects after that, so sorry about missing those.

I've removed the duplicates on my master list.  And fixed the typo.  Do you have any particular need for me to fix the version in this thread?

I'm well aware of the capitalization inconsistency, but at some point fixing them all to be consistent became too much work.  Most of these were copy and pasted in, and the people who wrote them weren't consistent with each other.

I'm also aware that there are many really bad aspects (IIRC, Cruel is an aspect used repeatedly in Our World, which is not only not PC appropriate, but is also utterly boring).  So if I do get around to classifying further, I'll probably include a non-heroic tag.  However, I have not discriminated about which aspects went in and which didn't, no matter how poor I may have thought the aspect was.

I have no particular need for you to fix the version in this thread. Perhaps at some unspecified point in the future the list could be cleaned up, but that would require more work than I want to do. More work than I would want to ask someone else to do, too. So don't worry about that. Anyway, the next few posts contain those aspects I mentioned earlier. Many of the mortal High Concepts will be very boring, I'm afraid.

Any way you could put your excel sheet into good docs and share it out for reading?

Here you go.  I'd like to get crowd-sourced additions and modifications, but I'm wary about opening it to the world at large.  Let's give it a try and see what happens.
