  1. Star Trek "Recovery!" - Trek by committee

    Trek's producers response to this topic would be summed up by the 2:39 statement in this video
  2. Spiderman Homecoming

    The Helicarrier from Avengers was retired by Winter Soldier. Fury pulls it our of mothballs for Avengers 2. Agents of Shield had a story line of a mysterious project the Culson was silent on until after Age of Ultron when it was reveled that the project was a refit of the retired helicarrier.
  3. DEMON after 2012 - your thoughts?

    My gaming group did a thought experiment setting for the aftermath of Feb 29 2012. We called it: Dr. Destroyer saves the world! Time line we came up with. Feb 29 2012, Demon's ritual draws the majority of the high power supers into a fight with Demon Inner Circle. Vipers local nest become involved on the hero's side. Mechanion Takes control of Unity station and nukes the battle as it is in progress. All members of Demon die in the mystic backlash, most other mystic heroes/villains not involved in the fight also die from the backlash. Mechanion also nukes stronghold. The World Super Powers then launch their nukes at each other because Mechanion feeds them false intelligence on the source of the nuclear attacks. WWIII occurs. The USA, Russia, China and other 1 st & 2nd world nations suffer heavy losses from nuclear strikes. Most of the nukes headed to Europe are rerouted by Mechanion to hit major population centers in the 3rd world nations. March 1, 2012 Mechanion's army of drones marches out of the north sea to conquer Europe. The population is enslaved to build factories that are designed. European Viper nests and Eurostar step up help defend with the European militarizes but get over run by the millions of drones. June 1, 2012 After loosing Europe the remaining Viper leadership, plus elements of UNTIL and Primus, the Tiger Force and other Militarily groups agree to swear alligence to Dr. Destroyer. The first target is to retake/or destroy Unity Station as it has sunk most of the world navies and Dr Destroyer knows where a working teleport pad is. Players would each make a super hero but most of the time an adventure party will consist of 1 super and a bunch of viper agents (or agents from another organization). We would rotate who super is leading a squad.
  4. MYTHIC HERO: What Do *You* Want To See?

    Or a Pulp Hero supplement. Lovecraft will put his material into public domain for other writers to pen a story in the setting via his will. But this was well before the advent of RPG. DG&D with the Cthulhu Mythos was published at a time when the estate licensed the mythos a publisher. Ever hear of Call of Cthulhu RPG? That publisher sued TSR. TSR opted to reprint without the Cthulhu Mythos and Elric saga characters. (TSR heard from the Elric people also.) TSR could have won the lawsuit but decided to settle as it was cheaper. TSR was still a small company in late 70s.
  5. The Blood of my Enemies

    I could see an Aztec like culture gathering the blood from the sacrifices to make iron weapons from it.
  6. Supergirl

    they mentioned the Flash talked to Vibe in an off air scene about his crossing into supergirl's world. Not everything has to be on screen.
  7. Supergirl

    When Buffy did it's musical episode, there was a bid emotional reveal during it. Flash, not so much. Buffy told the scubies that she thinks that she was in heaven when they raised her from the dead. Flash, we just confirmed the characters feels from the year(s)-long love story arcs. I also liked the Buffy episode where they could not speak. Joss was smart to have almost no sound track in that episode to emphasize the silence.
  8. The Blood of my Enemies

    In the Far East, swordsmiths sometimes made ancestoral steel. They ground human bone to add into iron to produce steel.
  9. Villain search

    Are there any published villains that are sorta like MCU Dr. Doom? looking for a hunted for a 300pt super hero that is a Mr Fantastic clone.
  10. Powerless

    I have enjoy the first two shows well enough. It needs some polishing, like most shows in their first year.
  11. GMPCs

    I am starting a game with 5 player, all of them have never played this system. I am planing a GMPC that is built on a lesser power level. My players are making low-level Supers (300bp 6e PCs). My GMPC will be a PRIMAS agent, built as a skilled norm.
  12. More space news!

    Astrophysicist have speculated about Hyper-nova. They usually result from Super-massive stars sometimes called a Hyper Star that burn for less than a million years before going boom. But these Hyper Stars are through to have existed in the early universe, like the first couple of billions of years. I have not heard of astronomers actually observing a Hyper-Star or a Hyper-nova and 3 billion light years is too close for one. The wiki on hyper-nova suggests that a hyper-nova could be from something else.
  13. Distinctive Features: Pure Soul

    There is no reason that a Pure Soul cannot be a power and a complication at the same time. Sure you make the player pay for the befits of Positive Reputation or Striking Appearance and allow it as a complication at the same time. The complication becomes that he will be targeted by the evil supernatural power that be. Either they want to destroy him or tempt him into corruption will be based on your setting. I read a Urban Fantasy series where there were greater immortals, Angles and Demons, and lesser immortals like Succubus, Imps Vampires and others. The lesser immortals were ties to a greater immortal and had to pay for their immortally by corrupting mortals or inspiring Mortals to goodness. The Demons wanted the lesser immortals tempt the pure souls of the world into corruption because that was worth more in the hierarchy of Hell/
  14. Create Water/Food, Purify Water/Food spells

    I realized that there is a difference between the LS and Transform builds. The Transform build will eliminate poisons that have been added to the food but the LS build will not. Unless you add in LC:Immunity to non-magical Poisons, 5AP. All the limits would make the end cp to be 2 or 3.
  15. Create Water/Food, Purify Water/Food spells

    Making someone think that they are not hungry with a mind control build would be enchantment/charm or you could go with images or mental images for an illusion magic school build
