Searching for ideas for Claremont Academy game

Hey all! So here's the deal. I don't own "Hero High" and probably wont. I do plan on running my own Claremont Academy game in the near future - just coming up with my own material for it, rather than using the stuff in the old sourcebook. I am trying to brainstorm ideas for adventure/campaign ideas....

Re: Designing a steampunk battlesuit

To answer one of the above questions, in the original setting - the suit took about a half an hour to get hot enough for locomotion, so essentially we are talking about an impossible situation to just jump in and start it in the middle of a combat. And I don't know if I would say that ironhead armor...

Designing a steampunk battlesuit

Here's the situation: soon I shall be running my players through a MnM campaign in the Iron Kingdoms setting - which is a setting created by Privateer Press that is basically a hybrid of steampunk and traditional fantasy. Originally it was a d20 rules set, but I believe that MnM will be a much bette...

Re: Invisibility and Sneak Attacks - how often?

It's less bothersome than it might be, because the player deliberately made his character as a non-combatant. He is fairly inefectual in combat, and this Sneak Attack thing is pretty much his only deal. That being said, I have gamed with this character for a while, and am getting a little tired of d...

Invisibility and Sneak Attacks - how often?

So here's the deal. One of my players has a character named Wraith. He's Invisible, and Incorporeal with the power feat that lets him interact with the physical world even while "phasing". Finally he has the Sneak Attack feat that gives him extra damage. Wraith's typical strategy is to basically jus...

Indeed, I should have mentioned that I had planned on using it only at certain times, such as at the beginning of an adventure, or an important event. But point taken though

"Panels" instead of "Box Text" - opinion

I don't own any M&M published adventures, so perhaps this is already done, but I wanted to post this to the group and see if you guys think it would be cool and fun, or merely cheesy and sad lol. In most adventures there are things known as "Box Text" - you know, stuff (usually in some sort of shade...

Indeed - I actually already own that one. I was asking if there was any further stuff out there. Instant Superheroes seemed like an exceptional one to me. Any of you folks reccomend it?

Essential 2nd Ed. Books

Hey all. As I type this, Amazon is speeding me over my newly-purchased copies of M&M Character Guide, M&M Gamemaster's Guide, and the M&M Gamaster's Screen. Combine that with the copy of Ultimate Power that I already own, and I should be all set to run a fairly decent and option-rich M&M campaign. M...

Ultimate Power - a 2nd ed book?

Just like the topic says. I have ordered the core books and GM screen already, but my local shop has a copy of Ultimate Power in stock. I was wondering if this was a 2nd edition book, or at least if it's 2nd ed compatible. Newbie question I know, and it's probably answered somewhere obvious, but I w...

Nah I am just saying that this is sort of an impossible power to impliment in the actual game. Well not impossible, just just really really problematic. Ah well.

So if the PC had taken the 2.5 million Duplicate level (as he would have easily been able to do in a Power Level 10 campaign) then the Dupes would appear in the nearest 2.5 million squares? That seems... sort of ridiculous.

Oh I am aware of that, don't worry. The only upgrade he is taking is "Horde". When we first started, he had Duplication AND super strength, with game-breaking results as you can immagine, but we have since fixed that problem. They are all just basic minions and such; the PC simply can create a Horde...

Duplication - where do the come in???

Hey all - new blood around here. I have a player who has created a Duplicating hero. I really like the Duplication power in the comics, but as a lot of people have found out, it's a little hard to impliment in the actual game. I have a few questions, but here's the main one: When creating Duplicates...
