  1. Superhero Images

    Here are a few characters created with modified art (not my original art). They're from my Epic City game. A long time ago I had a huge thread about Epic City. I'm sure it's archived somewhere, but I have no idea how to reach it. AMP Bastion Corona The Badger Freon If you want to see more, let me know. Oops, looks like I posted some of these already here: http://www.herogames.com/forums/topic/134-superhero-images/?p=2490834 Sorry
  2. Am I missing something? Isn't it as simple as loose a turn (action) from both Speeds then use the new Speed?
  3. In addition to what Rather reports below, there are other indications that a) we were there supporting Russian interests for some bizarre reason, and forces from Chad, which has been a valuable ally against terrorist groups, had been removed from the area because the administration attempted to put Chad on the travel ban list. From Dan Rather re: Niger: "While everyone is so busy talking about Trump's #fakepresidenthandling of his call to the widow of the soldier killed in Niger, you're all missing the important part of that story -- the part about what happened that night in Niger. Here's what we know so far: These soldiers went to a meeting in an area near the border with Mali. This is a well known hot spot for ISIS activity. Our soldiers were not backed up by US Military air support. No, they were backed up by the French, who were not authorized to intervene or even fire a shot. Our soldiers did not have armored vehicles. They traveled in pickup trucks. Our soldiers were given faulty intel that said "it was unlikely that they would meet any hostile forces." Of course, they walked into an ISIS ambush. It was chaotic and they took three casualties. It took the French 30 minutes to arrive. When they did, they were not authorized to help. So, a dozen of our Green Berets fought a battle with more than 50 ISIS fighters, without help, for 30 minutes. Finally, a rescue helicopter arrived, but it was not a US military helicopter. No, we apparently outsourced that job to “private contractors.” So, these contractors landed and loaded the remaining troops, the injured and the dead. Here's where this gets really bad .... Because they were not military, they never did a head count. That is how Sgt. La David Johnson was left behind. That's right .... they left him behind. According to the Pentagon, his locator beacon was activated on the battlefield, which indicates that he was alive when they left him there. They recovered his body 48 hours later, but are refusing to say where. According to his widow, she was told that she could not have an open casket funeral. This indicates that he was mutilated after being left behind on the battlefield. This is what led to the nonsense we're obsessing over. This is the real story. As usual, you're allowing it to be about Trump's distraction. The Trump Pentagon gave these men bad intel, no support, outsourced rescue people and then tried for more than a week to pretend it never happened. In that time, Trump spoke on many occasions and never mentioned it. He tweeted attacks on many but never mentioned these men. Only after pressure from the media has he bothered to even acknowledge these men and their service." Please COPY & PASTE to share

  7. Your Character's Costume?

    BTW: according to this site: "You have reached your quota of positive votes for the day" Otherwise, everyone would have received a "Like" Oh, I forgot to mention Crusade! In our campaign there is the leader of a group of heroes called The Paladin Project (sponsored by the Catholic Church) named Crusade. He's a gold and white vision of inspiration. He's purchased an Always On Transformation (based on magic) to keep his (mostly white) suit clean and in pristine condition. It's crazy how many times it's come into play when in conjunction with Presence Attacks/Orations.
  8. Your Character's Costume?

    I always thought costuming in hero level campaigns to be a missed opportunity. Imagine a Shadowrunesque HERO game filled with street samurai in their coolest leather coats and whatnot... It makes me laugh that an entire nights haul of Yen ($) could be wasted replacing expensive clothing that is rife with rips and tears form grenades, gunfire and flames. It always makes me giggle (those Tag Heuer sunglasses run over $500/pair). Like (almost) everyone else, I've always hand-waved such minutia... But lately, as we reach a certain level of gaming (hell, almost all of us are over 40 and have been gaming since high school), I'm looking for new ways to inspire roleplaying and interaction with NPCs over senseless combat. It seems like costuming is an easy way to introduce real world problems into a campaign.

  11. Your Character's Costume?

    What about damage to regular costumes and armor? Many of my players have some sort of reinforced clothing (a super suit with 5PD/5ED) or actual armor. When in battle I rule that those suits don't take significant damage unless they are broken per weapon/armor rules (surpass their creation cost) in Body. If that does happen, I rule tahat they've been torn or damaged but still provide sufficient protection (unless Ablative, of course)... Thoughts?
  12. Your Character's Costume?

    WHERE'S MY SUPER SUIT??? Hey gang, I was just wondering how you all address the ideas of costuming for your superheroes. The comics have addressed this in several ways, from Unstable Molecules to the Comics Code Authority. Superman's suit was made from his Kryptonian blankets and swaddling by Martha, Spiderman wore an alien symbiote, Batman wears a high-tech Wayne Industry battle suit, Iron Man is, well, Iron Man... Star Labs and Shield often help to provide suits, Green Lantern's is a galactic police uniform created by super-science, Wonder Woman's is forged from Zues' Aegis and Dr. Manhattan is just plain naked! I love some of theses and hate others, but I'd love to hear how you ALL handle superhero costumes in your campaign. I'll start. Honestly, in our long running game (EPIC CITY) we handle suits much like the comics; some are science, some are magical some are armor and some are just continually ruined. I've long wanted to expand on the availability of unique suits and the material and the time necessary to create them. Since my players have just made a major (and permanent) jump back in time, I thought now would be the right moment to exploit such conundrums. Certain things just don't exist in this time. There are no nanites or intergalactic material (our INVASION hasn't happened yet), there are no mystical armors or magical shields to be had (yet), and tech is slightly behind what they're used to (which would make repairs to specialized tools and armor difficult, if not impossible). They think they're going back to a simpler time, and in many ways they are. But I'm afraid that the reality of costuming might be a harsh slap in the face (at least until they figure the specifics out). So how do you handle super heroic costuming. Or do you even care and just hand wave it?

    Xanthippe: An expert of covert infiltration. Xanthippe has no innate power other than her ability to fit into any social circumstance. She also wears the Xanthippe Stone. Rumored to have been worn by Xanthippe, the wife of Socrates, it is an artifact of great power. The stone allows its wearer to overcome the effects of exhaustion, lack of food and drink as well as being an antidote for the damaging effects of poisons and drugs (including alcohol). The stone's only drawback is that, when used, it greatly shortens the temper of the wearer causing her to suffer outrageous outbursts and anger accompanied with incredible strength.
