    WH40K Hero

    Okay. That makes more sense. I was going to say the same as Old Man. If you've ever seen Gods of Egypt, then the way they showed the gods against the mortals is about how the Primarchs (who are bigger than Space Marines again) roughly are. My reason for pitching it there was that I'm basing this on the guidelines in 6E1, pg.35. It listed the upper bounds of Heroic as Char 10-23 and as that's around the CP that I was using as my starting point, I figured 20 was about right. I wanted to leave a little room to grow. And according to the Strength chart, at 20 you can lift a grizzly bear / 400kg. That is lower than our real world deadlift record however (500kg). The increase to STUN and END is interesting. I've been running Hero in a realistic fantasy setting and our END and STUN are much lower. There aren't guidelines for these by power level unlike other attributes so I guess I've been a bit off on what is normal. Should I also increase these for the Imperial Guardsman (a normal soldier) earlier, do you think? I left TF and a few others blank for now because this is a provisional template. Different actual characters will have different particulars based on role (e.g. some might fly anti-grav vehicles, some bikes, some jetpacks, etc.). Thanks for the help. I'll raise Speed then, but it will be across the board, not just for marines.

    https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/24/alexa_recording_couple/ I hate these things. My friends love em "Okay Google Now" and so on. So part of me feels vindicated here even if it's not the same product

    Heh, actually my eyes are still 20/20 (that and my hearing are probably the only parts of my body still holding up realtively well, though) I blame it more on being tired and a white background..

  8. I was just looking up the wiki for The Expanse novels (if SyFy or Amazon/Netflix won't renew it, I might as well start over on the novels) and noted the following: I wonder if they would be willing to write it up for HERO.

    To be honest, when I was little, I wasn't told to stand for patriotism. However, I was told, that standing for the anthem was a show of respect (akin to standing when a judge enters the courtroom) Just a differing look on the ritual. I admit at this I have no idea how anything applies to anything anymore.

    It's like they forget they are playing a violent game. Note: Not against safety, but make some damn sense with your safety efforts (and realize that you can only do so much without just giving up and go flag football)

    Martial Art(s) for a Batman-esque Character

    You know, a complete disconnect between the stated "style" and the list of maneuvers purchased is neither unheard of nor problematic. Put together the list of maneuvers that appear to give you the proper power in play, and then call it whatever you want. Considering the character you mentioned, it should be an aggressively athletic style that combines powerful strikes and the ability to contend with multiple attackers. I would suggest Tiger Claw Kung Fu. The only thing you need (other than the KS) would be to describe the clawed hand attacks used in combat.

    Snippets

    Leaving Jason behind the counter, Kris slipped out of her heels, took up her wine glass, and commenced to take an unguided tour of the executive penthouse. The carpet was a luxurious deep-pile that seemed to massage her feet as she walked. The walls were textured; whether they were painted or papered, Kris didn't bother to check. The color was bland. There were paintings on walls. All the frames matched and all were perfectly hung. On one wall a seascape, on another a flower vase, on yet another a forest scene. None of them were Jason's work. Kris frowned. Glancing down a hall, there was an open door. Within was a perfectly made bed. Kris turned back to the living area. The couch looked comfortable, as did the matching chairs facing it. A low chest serving as a coffee table. Nothing Kris saw said “Jason” to her. This would be a high value apartment were it in the city. It had all the amenities a person could wish for. And it felt like an impersonal hotel room. Jason's loft had been cluttered. Drawing pads of different papers, pens of different types made for making art, pencils for drawing, sketching, coloring all had tended to make a home on his coffee table. Bookshelves had held books covering art, art techniques, artists, along with myriad other books of other subjects. Kris recalled several books on philosophy, poetry, and classical literature. She turned her head and glanced at Jason. Steam rose from the pots and pans on the stove. Using a knife, Jason slid chopped vegetables into one of the pans. They sizzled when they hit. Kris caught the aroma of butter and garlic. “You aren't working on anything?” “Dinner,” he responded. “Funny. Not what I'm asking about and you know it.” Using the knife as a pointer, Jason said, “Bedroom.” “Do you mind if I take a look?” Shaking his head, he replied, “Go take a look.” At a sedate pace, Kris made her way down the hall. The king-sized bed was covered in a black comforter. It was perfectly made. Beside the bed were matching night stands stained reddish like cherry wood. The doors to the closet and bath were pulled closed. A tarp had been spread to protect the carpet from spatters or spills. Standing up was an easel holding a large canvas. Natural light from the glass wall would be Jason's lighting of choice while painting. Kris noted that it would be easy for Jason to move the easel out onto the balcony if he so chose. Moving closer, her eyes took in the details. The background was seemingly done. Storm clouds on one side with a sunlight breaking through the other. Rough mountains on the side with the storm clouds reminded Kris of the Rockies. Trees were done roughly, obviously unfinished, on the side of sunlight. Two female figures were sketched in the middle, their poses seeming to mirror the other. The foreground where the figures were was only a coat of green, unfinished. Overall it appeared the females would be on a meadow. “What do you think?” Jason asked. Kris turned her head and looked at him over her shoulder. “When did you start painting book covers?” “I don't. Just an idea that came to me. An image I can't shake. So I figured I would paint it.” Turning to face him, Kris asked, “Who are the women?” “I'm not sure.”

    I was just poking around the ‘net and know one seems to know for sure how strong a Space Marine is. Just that he’s super humanly strong. So I’ll guess at 30 STR

    The values I listed are in addition to the Space Marine described above (so 23 STR & CON, 25 BODY, etc).

    Been catching up on Gotham. Still really enjoying it. Love watching the villains and Bruce as they more and more become who we know they become. Really loving Cameron Riley Monaghan as Jerome and his sane brother. Truly scary after brother got hit by gas.
