    From a yearly game that takes place in a 31 year old campaign. Me: "So you probably don't remember this, but these guys in the crystal armor and swords... they showed up in 1994, sent back in time to take out Capt. Hero. (A PC back then.)" Player: "Holy crap. We've played so long we are now IN the dystopian future that they came from!" Me: "I don't know whether that is cool or very sad."

    So, this Dc Universe thing...

    I'm actively opposed to things like this. I think it's a horrible value and I won't go for any of these single-provider streaming services. I'm actively rooting for them to all fail. The way I see it, I already have most of what this service would offer. I have Netflix and Amazon Prime, and each of those services offers me hundreds (maybe thousands) of different movies and TV shows. I can almost always find something I'd like to watch. If this DC Universe thing doesn't exist, then I can watch most of what they're offering on either Netflix or Prime. I can do that already. So what are they offering that is new that I can't watch right now without paying for their service? I know they're planning on removing their shows and movies from these other streaming services, but that just means they're taking away value from me that I've already got, to try to promote their own service. I don't like that, and so I won't support it. Even if it wasn't a bad value, I wouldn't support it because I don't want to encourage other companies to do the same thing. It's part of why I won't get CBS All Access -- I'm not going to be goaded into getting it just for a show they'd have put on Netflix otherwise. And finally, I just don't think they've got enough content for me to want to pay just for their stuff. It's not a very good deal. I don't even think Disney's service is going to be worth it to me. They don't have enough stuff for me to want to see each and every month. When it's October and I want to see scary movies, what Disney films will I watch? You can only watch the Legend of Sleepy Hollow cartoon so many times. I think these specialty services have very limited appeal, and a very limited library.

    I'm old

    A friend of mine organized a surprise 50th birthday party for me last year, which caught me totally off guard. Mainly because I will turn 50 in about 3 months from now.

    Senator John McCain Has Died

    Senator John McCain Dead At Age 81 I voted for John McCain in the 2000 presidential primary though George W Bush and Al Gore went on to get their parties' nomination. I still believe we would have been better served by John McCain as president than either of those 2 gentlemen. In 2008, I voted for Barack Obama over John McCain, because McCain was no longer the better candidate. Still, I remember a time at one of his campaign rallies when he mentioned his opponent and the audience started booing and yelling racist things and McCain told them to stop and that his opponent was a good man and he just disagreed with him politically. His audience was displeased with his statement, but he has my eternal admiration for having the courage and class to make it. Godspeed in this final flight, good sir.

    Takes No Body

    Appropriate amounts of per-turn Regeneration (with the ability to resurrect and heal limbs) fail to properly represent this how, exactly? I ask because the ability to be Toon-like 'bonked' is effectively a special effect of the ability to die and recover from it. That's Regeneration in Hero … and a LOT of it at a very high cost if it's supposed to be near-instantaneous. Do note that even Wile E. Coyote peels himself off of rocks or walks away looking like an accordian after being pancaked … taking roughly a Turn (12s) to do it as he exits a scene in an amusing way … so I don't think you need to recover faster than that. You probably need a high REC to go with it so that you have some END and STUN, of course … unless you forsee the character needing to take it easy like Wile E. Coyote does (when he goes back to the drawing board) before it goes back into action. Put another way, I think we already have a power and appropriate characteristics that do exactly what you want. Thus, I don't see a need for another one. It probably costs more than you want it to cost, but it's so stupidly powerful that it SHOULD cost a ton, IMHO. Even your two-stage example of inability to lose limbs is actually covered by Regeneration; all you need to do is use the optional Hit Location rules to determine which limbs were hit, and consider them disabled or destroyed if enough BODY is done … then let Regeneration with Limb Healing ability do its thing to bring them back. No special tables or limitations needed, at all … and no need to create a custom power around it; just use the optional rules you already have around Hit Locations in conjunction with Regen and you're golden. That said, if you insist that this isn't a special effect of Regeneration and are absolutely intent on building some janky house-rule power around it, then I believe that the cost to achieve what you want using Regeneration and Recovery should be your guide as to the appropriate cost of whatever you build. i.e. I think this should cost far more than the Automaton powers tend to cost if it's to be near-instantaneous. To put that into perspective, Recovering 20 BODY per turn with the ability to Heal Limbs and Resurrect costs … (wait for it) … 345 active points. So that's the kind of power and pricing you're talking about when you want someone to be unkillable and be able to get up and walk away from Wile E. Coyote-like deaths in Hero in 12 seconds. (And that doesn't include the cost of a high REC to go with it...)

    To me, it's $7 a month to watch Young Justice legally. As much as I love the show, I can't justify it. I already have Netflix, Hulu, Crunchyroll, Funimation and Hi-Dive and it can't stack up to any of them.
