Re: Real city or created city for a setting?

When I first started running M&M in 1E I used a "real fake" city. I used Vice City from Grand Theft Auto, which worked well since all the players were somewhat familiar with it.

Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime Writers Needed -- Outside the U.S.

If you ever want to do a Hawaii supplement let me know. I know, I know, we're in the U.S. but we're BARELY in the U.S... I've been playing M&M since 1st ed and have published two books.

Re: Adding a bit of Horror

It's something I've always wanted to try but never have. I recommend JLA: Scary Monsters as a source read though.

Re: Name for an alternate reality Superman?

Hyperman? (cross between Superman and Hyperion)
Invader? (from space... a space invader)

Request for Webcomic Help

I currently have my comic set up on Blogger, which is a pretty clunky interface for navigating through strips. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to either: a better site to host a webcomic (not particularly interested in paying for hosting or coding a site from scratch)...

Re: Fun things your players have done

Nah, go ahead and run with it. The episode itself was an homage to Marvel 2 in 1 Annual #7: storyline featuring Ben Grimm and a bunch of Earth's heroes fighting against an alien fighter named Champion.
No monkeys though.

I trust you have seen the Dexter's Lab episode featuring Rasslor (Voiced by Randy Savage):

Re: Communication-- Why so expensive?

In one game I had a PC give his cell phone number to a cop and then was surprised when they managed to figure out his secret identity... :roll:

Re: DC/Marvel Questions.

I'm not terribly familiar with the religion of crime, would most of their recruits be weak-willed B-list type villains? (less prestigious say than Kingpin). If so, there are low-level thugs like Hammerhead, the Owl, Mr. Hyde. The Hand (or a sub-sect of the hand) could be brought into the fold also.

Re: First practice game - some questions

A Slam Attack is a charge attack, but you ram the opponent instead of merely making a close attack. Therefore, there is a -2 circumstance modifier to hit. Ah, I just noticed that a Slam is a Charge. See that's why I don't usually answer rules questions. :) ahh, i can't remember reading that in the ...

Re: First practice game - some questions

I don't believe nobody jumped in to answer these questions, the Think Tank is usually super-new-guy-friendly about answering questions. I'm not the best rules lawyer so hopefully these are correct. Damage conditions: look for the "recovery" rule at the end of the Action & Adventure chapter (pg 179 i...

Re: Play without skills

What happens on an opposed check, though? What if a thief trained in Stealth tries to sneak past a guard trained in Perception? Who wins? Or things like Intimidate checks? Or Inventing; do you always succeed on your Tech rolls there? *shrug* I dunno... I've never actually tried doing this, it just ...

Re: Marvel Gamma World/X-Men 2099 Setting

I created a wiki page for my campaign over at epic words: http://www.epicwords.com/campaigns/3161/wikis Most of the information is just a brief overview of the world (most of which was in my first post up top) and a brief write-up of the 12 major clans.
