  1. Wizard or Jedi?

    My school is doing a Spirit Week this week. Today's topic is "Wizards vs. Jedi". So, which do you prefer?
  2. Deathstroke Try outs

    Deathstroke Tryouts "Relax, bro, it's going to work this time, I mean, who protects Minneapolis?" Frost told his brother. "Even this city has superheroes," Requiem snarled, "And after that incident in Vegas…" "Yeah, half the 'supervillains' who showed up where in drag, the other were Elvis impersonators," Frost exaggerated, but not by much, "Then the Saints come up and kick all their asses and we barely escape. You know, we should put those guys on 'the List'." 'The List' was getting pretty long over the years, and Requiem would love nothing better than to make each and every person on it pay, but right now? He'd settle for four or five members to finally help he and his brother restore Deathstroke to its former glory, or better! They had had an uncharacteristic bit of luck of late. About a week ago, the two had been walking in street clothes with hoodies trying to figure out how to get supervillains to show up for membership. Hotel fees and transportation could be a bear, and as Frost pointed out, they really should have some brewskis nearby. That's when Foxbat, of all people, had landed near them, handed them a duffle bag, and said "You look like honest faces. Here, hold onto this. It's all part of my…dare I say it, Master Plan." And fled. Shortly there after some superheroine using very unlady like language flew overhead looking for the nutbar. Inside the duffle bag? One Million dollars! Unmarked. Requiem knew what he had to do. Before his brother could lose it at a card game or on floozies, Requiem made two investments. One to pay for his membership drive? The other? Well, that one was a gamble too. He had gotten mystical help to make sure this time, this time the recruitment well. The thing was a cube, six sides and all. Odd Runes on it that said stuff that made no sense, like Def, Ocv, and one side that had the letters COM crossed out. The mystic he had brought it from told him it would give him advise from 'those beyond' in making his selection. Could have been bunk, but the mystic had a good rep for being relatively honest, and Requiem figured it couldn't hurt. "Hey, there are some hot chicks out there," Frost said noticing the crowd of applicants that had gathered (Most lured by free room and board for the week), "Let's get one of those." "We're assembling Deathstroke, not a Harem," Requiem snorted, "We're going for whoever will work best with us, and this time? I even have an edge. Now, be cool, and follow me," the leader of the team of two moved out to greet the others. "I'm always cool," Frost muttered, and slipped out with him. "Okay, if I can have your attention?" Requiem said, "You're here because you know there's strength in numbers. And whatever else you might have heard about Deathstroke, we once held the power of destruction on a city wide scale in our hands. What you've been sent to show here is just a taste of what we'll be earning through our crimes." "How did you get the money anyway?" One guy asked. "Talent, planning, dedication, and perseverance," Requiem lied smoothly, not about to mention that a lunatic had handed it in their laps, "Now, we need a strong guy…" "Hey" One female voice spoke up. "Or Girl," he corrected. "Hey!" Another female voice. "Or woman" he corrected trying not to roll his eyes. "Ahem," came a nebously gendered voice. "God, I miss the 20th century," Frost muttered. Requiem ignored that ahem. This was a villain gathering, damn it, not a college campus, and went on, "Someone tough, strong, or to put in common terms- a Brick. Now, we run into a lot of so called 'heroes' who are way beyond bullet proof either thanks to ultra tough skin, forcefields, or whatever. So we also want someone with unusual attacks. Be it mystical, mental, or some kind of life draining thing- barring that, maybe something that slows folks down. Lastly, we'd like someone with a bit of mobility, someone who can keep up with all those damn speedsters and kung fu types. So I've sectioned you off into different niches, and using this mystic cube which will give me the wisdom of those beyond the invisible wall" He held up the cube, "I will then select." "Where did you get the cube?" One guy asked. "A creepy mystic guy with a solid rep," Requiem said. "The one in Toledo?" "No, Des Moines" "Oh, he is good, I hear," One other applicant opined. "So glad you approve, so, get into your group, step forward, and let's hear your pitch on who you are and why you deserve to be part of what will be the greatest supervillain team ever." OOC: That's right. It's a poll. Each candidate for each group. You may break the fourth wall and 'advise' Requiem of who he should take by casting your vote. There will be what is said and what Requiem notices, and there will be spoilers of hidden problems Requiem doesn't know about. Note, there nothing saying those beyond the wall have to HELP them. Suggest who you want to suggest to mess them up if you prefer that to aiding them. Please read the next three sections and see which ones you like as you play the helpful or not so helpful adviser from beyond
  3. Okay, I'm sorting through a few ideas for my table top group, which we'll probably never have time to play anyway, but I wanted some opinions on if any of these appealed to folks in general. So, in a 'shared origin' selection for a Champions game, which of these would appeal most to you? (Yes, there will be a poll) Each has some inspiration from one source (or many sources) or another. I'm sure you'll recognize a few The Baddest Blood- (Teen Champions) Some say Project Good Apple should never have gotten approval. Supervillains rarely make good parents, but that doesn’t' stop them from procreating. Rather than immediately transfer the children of supervillains to the foster system and wait for them to possibly inherit powers and become villains themselves, some Smartguy in Primus had the idea of letting a select few agents raise the very young ones as their own through adoption. At the least, it was a hope that the kids would have a better chance to grow up right than usual. At the best, some hoped it would lead to a new generation of registered superheroes that were a lot more willing to work with the government than many of the maverick teams of the time. Budget cuts happen, former agents start to become true parents who aren't as crazy about their kids being fast tracked to a life of violence even for a fed job, and somehow, Good Apple and its kids got lost in the shuffle. You're in your early teens, and you and your fellow PCs are about to learn they aren't just gifted, they get those gifts from the baddest blood. The Color of Survival- (Champions) When a modern day terrorist cell discovers notes on something that killed with light and has a maybe twelve percent survival rate, they figure it's radioactive or something, and that's fine with them. They set the bomb to go off during a concert, and it does, in a cascade of lights of all the colors of the rainbow. The terrorists have unwittingly used a device meat to grant powers not kill. Fashioned by the villain Prism, it was how he made his supervillain Spectrum (See the Excellent Champions Presents #1). That was the 80s. Prism now serves four consecutive life sentences in Stronghold along with most of his buddies. However, few can survive the effects of it, and few did. Out of a nearly hundred people there, only a dozen survived. The survivors were also transformed forever. Some more obviously than others, but each gained powers along with a tendency towards a particular hue. For those who are not too badly deformed, it might be a dream come true- Except, of course, for the ugly fact any family and friends they came with likely died horrible deaths while they didn't. Some of the NPCs may become villains yet, others may just want to pick up what they can of their lives and grieve. The PCs? There are terrorists out there to capture, victims to avenge. Justice first, grief after, and a whole lot of survivor's guilt in between Iconic Man checked the Donor Box- (Champions) You've been on the waiting list for an organ transplant for a while. Truth to tell, you were getting worried. Then, in anbotherwise dark time (One of the cities most beloved superheroes had died) you got the go ahead. A man had passed away, and his organs were going out. Maybe you got a kidney, a lung, or even a heart? The important thing is, you had a new chance at health! The transplant was surprisingly smooth, recovery time was swift. And then? Then you began to develop superpowers! You see, Iconic Man was one of those shapeshifting super strong telepaths with freaky supervision you hear about. You have just one of those aspects. But the other organ recipients? They've gotten his other powers, and, you appear to be able to talk to each other in your heads through a funky mind link. None of you are as powerful as Iconic Man was, but when the city still faces his old foes? Maybe you owe it to the man who saved your lives to work together, as a team? Terra Force Reunited- (Champions) During the 80s, there was horrible and cheesy attempt to make a Superhero themed TV show. With outdated special effects, cheesy lines, and let's be honest, not the greatest acting, it was a modest success and ran for two years. The actors split up after the show, and while one or two went on to bigger things, most of them had to settle for weaker and weaker parts, and some just quit show biz entirely. Meanwhile, in a highly advanced planet, the lessons of Terra Force, about truth, honor, justice and the Terran way have become a part of their culture mainstay! It has revolutionized their planet over the last two years. It took a while for the signals to reach. Space probes were sent out to find out what happened to their heroes, only to learn the horrible truth. This, Terra Force, practically, a religion to the aliens now, was based on mere pretense? Did this mean their ethics were now a lie? No! said one brave scientist of that world. There was a way to make it right, to make it true! The Actors were found, and 'borrowed' for a time, when they woke up, each one of them was young again, with the same powers they had on the show, and released back onto Earth! With rediscovered youth, super powers, and warp bypass transmission devices implanted in their brains, a group of very confused actors can only wonder what happened and what will they do now? Meanwhile, the Aliens in question have no idea they have just exchanged a Cheesy early 80s show for a new Reality one. All involved are in for quite the learning process. Each Player plays a character who was a former actor, and they can talk it over with the others which ones are still loved by obscure fandoms, moved on to 'real roles', or just shucked it all to help sell used cars back in their home town.
  4. Playing with Polls

    Just seeing how polls work under the new software. Nothing of consequence.
  5. Retro Styled Campaign

    I'm contemplating an online campaign set in the past. I know when I'd like to set the campaign in, but I'm curious about what the general Champions population thinks. Rather than breaking it down by the Ages of Comics, I've instead separated the choices into decades as I think each has its own distinctive flavor. My take in brief on each decade: The 40s - Obviously dominated by World War II, a straight Golden Age campaign with heroes vs. Nazis, with a wealth of new info thanks to the outstanding Golden Age Champions The 50s - The birth of Rock n Roll and television, the heightening of the Cold War, McCarthyism, great black and white sci-fi films...the interregnum between the Golden Age and the Silver Age in the early part of the decade, the onset of the Silver in the later. The 60s - Baby boomers come of age, the height of the Cold War, counterculters emerge, Rock n' Roll evolves, the height of the Silver Age The 70s - Watergate, the Energy Crisis, disco emerges...as does heavy metal, arguably the greatest era of filmmaking, Viet Nam, the Bronze Age starts here The 80s - Ronald Reagan, MTV, yuppies, 'greed is good', the onset of the personal computing age, the Bronze Age gives way to the Iron Age late in the decade...laden with spikes, an overabundance of pouches and misspelled codenames So I'm curious, what decade would you like to play in? Thanks in advance.
  6. Saucy Virtual Girl Lisa versus the seductive secretary Miss Sakamoto! Poetry in Motion, Voodoo Dolls and chants... You don't believe it, or wonder why don't people understand... your intentions! How do you prefer your Science! BLINDING! Or WEIRD! Despite my references... I mean which song do you prefer, but by all means take the videos into account if you like

  9. Welcome to the 2017 NGD March Madness tournament bracket! Here, for your amusement, we pit 32 superteams against each other in "friendly" games of basketball, and you decide who wins each game. As the contests are scored by basketball rules, destroying the court or the opposing team does not directly contribute to victory, so raw power might not be what decides the winners. Assume all players have their usual powerset and can use them, although using them against other players may or may not constitute fouling. Your refs are The Watcher, Dr. Manhattan, and the Beyonder. Make of that what you will. We have divided the brackets into four general categories: Mutant Menace, Avengerses, Justice Legions, and Orphans and Outcasts. The winners of the Marvel brackets will meet in the semifinals, as will the DC/Orphans bracket winners. The winner of each will then proceed to the championship final. Each round will have about three days for voting before we move on, though I reserve the right to extend the first week as there are quite a few contests. Notes: - I tried to fill each roster with the core heroes for each team, but this was not always possible as some heroes are frickin' everywhere. (Batman, the troubled loner, is probably the worst offender.) - I also tried to keep rosters at 5-7 members, so some teams had to be trimmed a bit. Of course only 5 players from each team can be on the court at any given time. Legally. - If I forgot your favorite hero, or completely messed up your favorite team's roster, I dare you to run one of these next year.
