    I used to be known on this site as Tjack but due to a glitch when it was upgraded I've been blocked from my old ID.
  1. Character Theme Songs

    My first Champs hero Jack Flash was a Los Angeles based, .357 packing, FBI agent, and was so long ago that when the movie Beverly Hills Cop II came out I stole it's theme song. Bob Segar's "Shakedown" was always just perfect. "It's a given L.A. law, there's always someone faster on the draw. No matter where you hide, I'm gonna take you down."
  2. Things that should be in fortune cookies

    Four different times in my life I've gotten the fortune, "Depart not from the path from which Fate has you assigned." Creepy phrasing and all. I've asked other people and no one ever said they got that one. I can't tell if either I'm in big trouble or in for something cool.

  5. Star Trek Generic Character (5th Edition)

    That would be here in the Download section. There's one for Classic Trek and one for TNG.
  6. Skills: useful or just for flavor?

    When building a character I like to work from the inside out. Meaning that a lot of the time I've got a better idea of the personality of the guy than of how to write up the powers. I've been kidded that in the middle of a game I'm the only one who knows the color of his character's socks. What all this means is that for me part of writing up is to have a list of skills that I know may never come up in game but I think add flavor to the roll play. Also when every once in a while when one PC being a guitarist or another who's a Houdini buff comes up in session it's a little treat like an episode of TV where you see that favorite character/actor of yours sing, or juggle or something. The next time you're finishing a write-up and have a point or two left over, instead of just tossing them into a stat you'll raise up to an effective number later, consider what this person does when their not saving the city.
  7. Agents Of SHIELD!

  8. Con survival pack

    For the first timers, do yourselves a favor and BEFORE the con, hit a pharmacy and pick up vitamins or the little packs of multiple vitamins. Also get a strong daytime cold reliever that won't have you out on your feet. Cons are incredible breeding ground for illness so don't forget the hand sanitizer. Then off to the supermarket to the aisle with those breakfast bars. Make sure to get the ones that are high fiber and protein for mid day snacking and to keep away that sugar-crash feeling. I also like getting a container of dry Gatorade mix to add to my walk around water bottle before I leave the room. Something other than plain (or nasty tasting) water and electrolytes to help balance off the sweat loss from overheated crowds and possibly bulky costumes.

    How did it all work out?

    I made a mistake about scheduling!!!!! They play EVERY OTHER WEEK!!!! Also last weekend was the Arisia Sci-Fi Convention, there may be some schedule juggling going on. Send an E-mail to the GM mentioned in the online schedule to make sure you don't end up showing up to an empty room. Let me know when you see this.
  11. Finally!!! My PoS computer has shut me out for the last hour! I'll take the WildStorm Earth of the Wild C.A.T's and StormWatch.

    No, the SGS has it's own separate website. Just search MIT Stratigic Games Society and you'll find it. I already checked it and there's a Hero 5th edition game every other weekend that takes new walk-ins. And if you feel self conscious about all the new people, an old buddy of mine is running the D&D and Rail Games down the hall. Stop in there and tell Paul A. TJ says hi and to treat you nice.

    I haven't been myself for quite a while but I used to play with the MIT Stratigic Games Society. It plays on the campus in Cambridge, and when I first played there I was going to Northeastern, so not being a student there wasn't an issue. That's where I first played Champions and made friends that I've had for almost 25 years. Try the website.
