Re: Lame one-liners with extra cheese, please!

If he pins someone to the wall or something with a knife he can say "stick around" As an attempt at intimidation he can ask a would-be opponent if he/she brought a mop. "Because I am about to wipe the floor with you". When swinging with the electric sword, he could say "you are in for a shock". Mayb...

Re: Crisis Pool

Interesting idea. It is basically a Bad Karma Pool. Savage Worlds has a similar idea, in that the GM has a pool of Hero Points to use for the villains. The problem with that is likely one that you would encounter: it gets forgotten. In that game the Hero points can only spend on non-Extra characters...

Re: Probably taboo....but is there a Marvel official publica

Sex and comics just dont work together for me. If I want to see porn I'll get on the web. I like to keep my RGPing as 'cartoony' as possible. I dont even allow bathroom talk ;) Seeing as my gaming group consists of me, my brother, and several of our children, I have to agree. But we DO allow some c...

Re: A Dimensional Places Handbook

The 2nd edition Paragons book has about 8 pages on other realms through what is called the Imageria. It is kind of like the Never Never in the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher (which is incidentally how I view it).

Yes. And therefore not playable in my opinion. In the 90s I would have thought it was cool, but I don't care to play a game that is more work than fun.

Arthur Eld, thanks, I will look at your builds. Your builds thread is huge.

Re: Probably taboo....but is there a Marvel official publica

Has anyone done a Chanpions conversion? I tried to find it but "Champions" is not an easy search since the word is valid in many contexts. Some of the books that I have seen have some cool characters but the system is way too complicated (which is part of what makes M&M so cool, it pulls it off with...

Re: Emerald City Is Here!

My print copy of the book came today. For those that do not know, it is a single hardback book that has a map that is easy to pull out (has two little blobs of glue that pull off easily). It looks good and has what has become the norm for the 3rd edition books. The second edition books were good, bu...

Re: New guy w/ a few questions.

In general I find basing powers on spell effects to be too limiting. They are good for inspiration, but trying to copy them detail by detail is not recommended. The spells have changed a bit over the years, but many of them are still read like this: "Cool spell.... still cool... restriction... major...

Re: Fun/Stupid Powers You've Built

One player had a character that created a stream of toilet paper as he rode it around the city, kind of like how Ice Man does with his ice that he skates around on. It was almost helpful to mummify people with, but then again it was toilet paper so not really very strong, and it was nullified by get...

It can also give you a Stealth bonus, or even the Concealment power.

Re: How are Perception and Area balanced?

Basically. I disagree with the OP. I think Perception and Area should be, at least, +2 extras instead of +1. I simply found it amusing that the OP thinks it isn't worth +1, you think it's worth +2, and I think +1 is a fine value. It just goes to show how fractured the fanbase really is on these thi...

Re: Atlas of Earth Prime

Personally, I like a hidden undercurrent of the supernatural/occult in the world. I also like the Paragons setting, with a twist of Wild Cards. My own vision of the world is more a mix of Paragons, Wild Cards, and the Supernatural Handbook. Add to that some space aliens and the denizens of the Image...

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

I am not an outside US writer, but I just wanted to say that I like the idea of this line. The following year you could do outside of Earth or different dimensions or planes of existence or something.
