    Building the perfect disease

    Something crossing my mind. Who is this for? Villain or PC? If it's a villain, do you need an exact point value? You're trying to match a set of special effects that don't fit well within the system, and were built in the original material for dramatic effect to at least some degree. And is this intended to be a dramatic threat or a tactical action?

    File extension change issue

    Suddenly all the file extensions in my Character Packs have changed from hdp to hdc. I can change them back and they work fine but I'm having to this all manually per each file. Any clue why this happened and a way to change them back or stop it from happening again?? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Looking for a few people to play a game, even one would be fine, we're in Del City. Specifically ones that will sit around a table and huck some dice while roleplaying.

    We lost a good one.....

    I will miss Hyper-Man. When I was wet behind the ears, he smacked me up one side of the head and down the other about knowing where my towel was. With his help, I now know I have a towel, and where I might find it.

    Stretching could work. Stretching 2" is a 12' radius (give or take). Activation rolls for non-HtH interaction.

    Just saw this after coming back to the forums a few days ago, and I'm very sad to hear the news. Thank you for your contributions to the forums, hyper-man! I always appreciated the conversation, helpful hints, and thoughtful analysis. Bye.

    Rethinking Growth

    You say "Custom Power." Do you mean "Compound Power?" If you mean Custom Power, I'd love to know you get that to work for this. Lucius Alexander Palindromedary Power

    Rethinking Growth

    I'd go one further and get rid of Growth altogether. Buy the other powers that being large typically gets you, reach, KB resistance, etc., and consider your actual size to be a special effect.

    The Claw!

    As I see it, if you have a limb that can grab and some STR usable with the limb, you don't NEED to pay points for a basic non-martial "Grab" maneuver. Conversely if you don't have a limb or any STR, I for one don't think you can get the ability to grab even if you do buy a Martial Grab maneuver. It would be like buying a Fencer's Thrust or Parry without equipping the character with a sword. I can't drive my Pontiac Grand Prix up to you and grab you, even though it has a STR score, because it has nothing to grab WITH. If some mad scientist equips my car with an Extra Limb, then it will have something to grab with and can do so. But in accordance with the principal that if you pay points for something it should be useful, I can see allowing a vehicle with Martial Arts to be considered to have a "free limb." Lucius Alexander I'm riding a palindromedary. How does that grab you?

    The Claw!

    Grab is a maneuver available to any and all characters, no cost. Your vehicle should be able to do it if it has a STR score and an arm/hand.

    Low Level, Mid Level, High Level.

    Low level: Seduce the scullery maid (or stable hand) of your choice. Make her/him grateful. Medium level: You get seduced by a section of the housekeeping staff. They make you grateful. High level: You get caught by the lord of the castle in flagrante delicto seducing the lady of the castle (or vice versa, as appropriate) while the outraged spouse is still sober and the castle guards are still armed and on duty. Actually, it is up to you if you are the seducer or the seducee; it really doesn't matter. In any event, you will be grateful if you make it out of there alive. Next topic: Negotiating peace with a long-time enemy.

    Building the perfect disease

    One thing comes to mind would be Uncontrolled, No Conscious Control, Area of Effect, Trigger. So whoever makes the disease sets up the specific amount of time it's transferable for, as per Uncontrolled, by paying the required amount of endurance. From there, there's No Conscious Control of how it might be transferred via Trigger and Area of Effect. But the questions unclevlad brings up need to be answered to have a specific build.

    The last whistle-blower to leave the company seems to have succumbed to polonium-210 poisoning. Either that, or Kyrgyzstannic Lumbago with lots of red flags. Hard to tell which. NT: Symptoms of Kyrgyzstannic Lumbago (with or without red flags). The more libelous the better.

    Building the perfect disease

    I would buy it as a 5d6 or 6d6 Transform, AOE, Limited Target: Human (-1/2), All or Nothing (-1/2). You decide on Minor or Major, personally I would go with Major since I would consider this to be a 20 point or so Physical Limitation (Infected and Infectious: Ebola, Frequently, Greatly). You could add some other limitations like Not versus those with self contained breathing or taking appropriate precautions (-1/2) and you might add some verbiage around how long they are infectious. If it is only a chance, you can throw an activation roll on it. - E
