Re: Help with a puzzle!

I figured an Expertise check would work best. There's a new character joining the game who has an Expertise: Physics skill, so I think that could work quite well. I'm also adding another method to help the puzzle move forward. A journal can be found with a thorough check, with some important dates h...

Help with a puzzle!

Hello again, everyone! So with everything all sorted now for the next series of games, I'm in the process of writing up the main story. I'm currently finishing off the first part, and have decided to add a puzzle to the intro of the game. To quickly sum up, the players find a magical seal in an apar...

Problem with a players character development

So we're about to start a new series of games, taking place 2 years after the last one we did end of 2013. I've had each player come up with ideas as to what their characters have been up to in the 2 year gap, to work into the game and for development too. One player, a mystic knight of sorts, has s...

Re: New GM, asking for advice

The initial 7 game run was PL 10, like the book suggested. The players made their own characters, as they wanted to try out the game system with fresh characters rather than pick an existing one. We started out in Gotham, solving a murder mystery before it became a conspiracy story, drawing on sourc...

Re: New GM, asking for advice

I can tell you from my experience running a series as GM, which was the first for me as well, is that it's important to say Yes and No to your players, much like the game states. I'm not saying that you should be dictating how the game goes at every which way and turn, but if you let the players get...

Help with a Sorcerer character

Hello again everyone, need your advice for one of my players. We're starting a new series of adventures very soon, and at this point, his character is an apprentice sorcerer, and has just regained his spell book. We both want to work a mechanic where he'll use the book to learn new spells, being abl...

Re: Suggestions for a challenge

Ok, sounds good. I imagine they'd come under Minions, seeing as they are already in the maze and whatnot. I'm looking through Mirror Master's powers to get an idea of what to do. There's 'Copy Person', which is a Summon Reflection, which could work well character wise. So far, Morpheus has Red Robin...

Re: Suggestions for a challenge

Hello again! Sorry for the lack of response, guys, last few weeks have been dreadful on my end. Have thought some more about the challenge, and I really do like the 'hard light' constructs idea, particularly since Morpheus is a metamorph, could have it that each construct takes on the image of those...

Re: Suggestions for a challenge

Well, it's a massive mirror maze, so orientation is gonna be the big challenge here. I suppose it could be a Perception Challenge so he doesn't bump into walls or whatever. I've debated having security cameras around, so an additional challenge of not being seen, seeing as Morpheus is a thief (he do...

Re: Help with a Tracking Challenge

Well, I was only considering maps because of the location, but I had a thought that if the park lights are out, they wouldn't know where they'd be going anyway. Had an idea, to withhold a potential map, literally keeping them in the dark, and then rewarding them with a layout if the electrics are fi...

Re: Help with a Tracking Challenge

Hey JDRook! I'm looking for navigation help. With the lights out, would it take longer for the tracking challenge to be completed? I'm still trying to wrap my head around the Measurements Table in the PH, this will be the first time I'll use it extensively. Would it be easier to draw maps for my pla...
