  1. Champions for One Player and One GM

    Just curious along the same lines, when you guys played with only two, was it purely a solo adventure campaign or did you add GMPC heroes to aid the player? Shadow7
  2. Really good names and ideas with so many of these! A few I had actually thought up of, some were really new such as Java....I really liked the Spider idea, that really fits the type of support that I am looking for, not someone with immense wealth but someone who operates out of her basement while still maintaining a job during the day to pay her bills..... Thanks for the ideas! Not sure which one I am going to use yet..... Shadow 7
  3. Hi all, I have always enjoyed some of the creative ideas that I have received from all of you in designing my campaign. I am looking for your help once again. I am looking at adding a Felicity Smoak or Oracle type character to the campaign to serve as a computer tech NPC to assist the PCs on their adventures. Like Felicity or Oracle, the character would strictly be at her computer, and may not even have any direct contact with the PCs at all except through their computer link. I am looking for a creative name that might represent both a cyberpunk and technology theme. Anyone got any suggestions? Thanks! Shadow7
  4. I need some help on a villain

    Very good idea, indeed! A true guardian angel power! What kind of power might that be in game terms? Thanks!
  5. I need some help on a villain

    Based on some of the suggestions here, I am thinking of combing a few...She will receive good luck by causing bad luck on her opponents. She will also have the ability to create images based upon the worst fears of the person. Finally, she will have the ability to create a barrier, she will have mind defenses and a magic bolt to project. The more "good" luck she receives the more powerful she becomes. In order for her to be defeated, the Furies will have to reverse the karma. They should be able to do this in several ways. One of the heroines is a sorceress, Spellbound who will have a dispel power which can rid the effects of the bad luck. Another heroine, Portal is time traveler that can jump back into the past or future into short bursts, sidestepping the bad luck effects before they happen. I have yet to think of any ways in which the warrior angel character, Guardian Angel can overcome the effects on her own. She basically is combination of Wonder Woman and Shazam combined with a sword. Thanks all for your suggestions, once again all good ideas!
  6. I need some help on a villain

    All great suggestions, thanks! I think I have a better idea of how to make this villain...
  7. I need some help on a villain

    Hi all, I could use some help on an evil sorcerer that will be trying to resurrect a fallen supervillain. I am going to run an introductory adventure of the Furies (an all female superheroine group) against a sorcerer named Karma. I am thinking that Karma may have some powers that involve bad luck. However, I am still up in the air as to what else this evil sorcerer may have as far as powers in order to battle the Furies. She is going to break into the museum in order to steal the body of the fallen supervillain in order to resurrect him. Any one have any ideas on some powers she might have? Thanks for your help!

  8. Superheroine Team Names

    I love all these ideas, they are really well thought out! I think I am going to go with the name the Furies, which was suggested by Cassandra! Since the Furies were three female spirits of justice and vengeance. Sounds like a good description for our ladies' sg. I shared with one of them the name and the meaning behind it, and she loved it! Thanks all for your help! Shadow7
  9. Superheroine Team Names

    Thanks for the replies, they have been very helpful and interesting! The name of the three characters are Guardian Angel (the leader), Portal and Spellbound. I suppose eventually that there is a possibility that male characters may join, if that happens the name could be changed, but I thought since it is rare to have an all female group formed that is why I am looking at the name to reflect that. San Angelo is a fictional city, it was a supplement that could be used for Champions much like Millennial City, however it is based on the West Coast in California where we are all living. Shadow7
  10. Superheroine Team Names

    Hi all, Starting up another Champions RPG campaign with a bunch of new players who are new to RPG. As it happens all are women and playing female characters, and I wanted to offer some suggestions for a team name since they are all new to this. I am looking for a serious name that is not offensive, one that denotes strength but also may highlight the fact that it is an all female group. The characters consist of an angel warrior, a sorcerer, and a time traveler who can create portals to teleport through. They are based in San Angelo, CA. There are not many examples to draw from for this...except from FemForce, Birds of Prey, Fearless Defenders, and A-Force. Fearless Defenders is the closest in make-up to this team it would appear. Thanks for any suggestions you may give. Shadow7
  11. Well I know the genre, I have all the books on Dark Champions: the Animated Series, Hudson City: the Urban Abyss, etc. I would love to play, just never have been able to figure out the rules or the character creation to make a street level hero. I would love to play, if someone can help me put together a character and everyone would help me learn the rules. I promise to be a fast study. I have played Champions, but I must admit I use the LARP rules since they are so much easier to figure out when you are trying to learn on your own....I have a couple of character ideas, and would be interested in playing a street level detective realistic to semi-realistic game with overtones of a serious nature.....eg. Chris Nolan's Batman movies and Arrow tv series.
  12. Sounds interesting, will the players run independent missions or just wait for each other to respond? Also how well do you have to know the Hero System? Still new to it and not completely grasped all of it even though I played RPGs many years ago...
  13. Not sure why people are so mean spirited. If you don't want to take part in a discussion, no big deal. But not sure why you have to be so dismissive to others who might....
  14. Sounds like a pretty cool team. An interesting mix of street level vigilantes and low powered superheroes!
  15. Often when I read a purchased adventure it will state this is best used with 4 - 6 PCs. So I began to think what is the perfect number for a PC party? I am currently running a campaign with 4 PCs. The number is very good to manage, and even if we were to add another member or two, I think we would be ok. What's the number that has worked for you? Has anyone tried more, like 8 to 10 PCs? Has anyone tried fewer like two or even gone solo with one PC in a Champions campaign? I know it can be done in Dark Champions! Just curious to hear what the perfect number is for your PC party. Thanks!
