Doing character creation for my own Freedom City game, I decided to do a bit of improv roleplaying. The characters are going to be playing recent grads of the Claremont Academy, so I set the scene as being the unofficial graduation party for the "special" students. Bolt was zipping around interviewi...

Re: Small, but deadly. Large, but graceful.

I have read this many times and I still cannot figure out what you mean. Is the character Tiny or Large? Can you give an example? I described an example just below that paragraph. And the example didn't make sense. Can you give one without using game rules at all? If this character were in a comic ...

Really, not necessarily so. Many kind of descriptors that could be summarized as "malleable flesh" may easily rearrange internal organs as well as external features in the gender-swapping I was thinking Darkman-style, or…I think there was a Batman villain who could do that. One of the Clayfaces, ma...

Re: Small, but deadly. Large, but graceful.

Basically, I want to create a Power that allows characters to either purchase the benefits of being larger (A Tiny character with an effective size Large) or the benefits of being smaller (A Medium character with an effective size Diminutive). Note that I do not want the associated negative effects...

Though if the character in question is a male that can turn female, would things like being able to become pregnant and other uniquely (from a human standpoint, at least) female traits (possibly affecting mechanical things like Restricted: only usable by females or Affects Females only ) still be "...

Re: Powersuits, Features, and what qualifies?

Professor Paper wrote:What's a feature, and what can be better simulated as a separate power in the device array?
If it needs ranks or has a significant game effect, that's the time to put it in as a separate power. The stuff you list? Features, but other safety equipment might be powers - like say a fire extinguisher.

I love the idea of the subway map, but the colors chosen make it really difficult to distinguish between the various lines.

Cyclops, possibly? His optic blast is incredibly powerful, but he's definitely a Defense/Defensive Roll type. Wolverine might count as well - claws can cut through anything, but he's going to dodge a powerful attack instead of take it on the chest. Since Attack & Defense are traditionally associated...

I'm sure I've read this somewhere on the forum, but for the life of me I can't find it. Can the Mimic power copy powers from Devices? If so is the Flaw (Limited: Living things only) vaild? Or does the flaw have to be more specific? There's nothing that says it can't mimic devices, and the Limited f...

Re: emotion control and no saving throw

Emotion control let's you change emotions with apparently no roll to hit, at perception range. If they fail their save vs Will it has staged effects. So if I buy 1 rank of emotion control with the No Saving Throw modifier There's a segment on No Save powers in the Mastermind's Manual (p78). It give...

That depends. Do you want this to be awesome for them, or suck? Restrictions: (off the top of my head) Any movement has to be done on the slower person's initiative and at the slower person's pace (unless the faster one is carrying the other.) Knockback affects both people equally. One person can ai...

Definitely challenge feats from the MM:
* Accelerated Acrobatics (allows you to move at full speed or even charge)
* Perfect Balance (keep your dex bonus while balancing)
* Accelerated Climb 2 (climb at full speed)
* Fighting Climb (keep your dex bonus climbing, too)
