Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime: Canada

Add in to that, that is also a complication means that whenever she doesn't kill its going to cost the player a hero point & whenever she does kill, her player is going to receive a hero point: That's how complications work unless something has changed, or if the complication was poorly written & t...

Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime: Canada

Well, it's not the best piece of art. You're right that the costuming for Team Canada is fairly generic. Big Thunder and Miss Canada look like they're wearing Alpha Flight's laundry day uniforms, the Opportunist has a fairly basic speedster -- which isn't great but is probably the best of the lot --...

Re: Gadget Guides PDF Preview

I'd be excited to read the appendices on Inventing and Rituals, but from the table of contents, it looks like there's going to be two new Guides -- Psychic and Steam -- as well.

Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime: Canada

Doesn't matter, in fact that makes it worse. Firstly government bodies have oversight committees: If you have a public super team, sponsored by the government in a westernised first world with strong ties to the U.N, that just wouldn't fly.... Secondly that takes me out of it further since any orga...

Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime: Canada

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS Okay, so moving on to general observations.... Correct me if I'm wrong, but you appear to have a sociopathic killer on a public super hero team, knowingly funded by the government, functioning on a national scale in full view of the public... I'm thinking people should have a p...

Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime: Canada

Been looking forward to this for a while and I was not disappointed. There's plenty here that I can incorporate into my future games.

I especially enjoyed the subverting of common Canadian stereotypes with Team Canada.

Re: [Green] Arrow TV Series

Why *wouldn't* it be Connor? They've been using all the core parts of Ollie's background, and he's not old enough to have an actual teen sidekick, and they're not going to drop that plotline and leave it, so it has to be Connor. I was excited about the prospect of Connor Hawke being brought into th...

Re: [Green] Arrow TV Series

However, I think we're also supposed to see the cracks in Ollie and Sarah's relationship to add to her inevitable death... I'm not yet convinced that Sara's going to die but her running off to Nyssa could have been handled a lot better. The idea that Oliver's somehow this super great guy, and Sara'...

Re: [Green] Arrow TV Series

That may have been the worst episode of the season thus far. A bunch of overwrought drama, just killing time until the last five minutes.

Re: Trip question?

Growth does increase Strength, which in turn will contribute to the Athletics roll the character being tripped will need to make as part of an opposed check. Unless the character performing the trip has the Improved Trip advantage, of course. There was an issue of AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE, where Tas...

Re: Punching For Justice - A Mutants & Masterminds Podcast

No, we didn't. Between Eric's generosity with Hero Point rewards, and a few character re-writes, I wouldn't be sure what build of each character would be best representative of what you hear in the episodes. Ideally for the 'cast, the character stats would be a bit more static, but I have to admit I...

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

Victoria Hand is dead in the comics?! That saddens me. Yeah, she's got a statue in the garden and everything. Brother Voodoo's ghost brother killed her when he was on an angry rampage, killing former allies because they didn't prevent Brother Voodoo's [pointless] death. Now I really want her back a...

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

I was actually enjoying last night's episode -- things are happening, and those things are interesting! -- but if the show traded Saffron Burrow's Victoria Hand for Paton Oswalt, they did not make a great decision. I'm hoping she'll somehow have survived, but it's not looking good. Her death here wo...

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

I wish I could see what you all are talking about when you say this was a good episode; I thought it was clunky and predictable. AoS has been trending upwards in terms of quality over the last few episodes, but this instalment was merely average, meaning still not very good.
