    Well I had a thread about using Drain to break items and THAT got into a lot of disagreement. Mainly that even though you can break a item using Drain body per Raw, some try to say that the item would still recover (like a normal drain).
  3. Hello all, Quick question, can I legally add Does Body to a Normal Dice attack once I add Penetrating? I believe I should be able too. (CC) TiA!

    Normal Dice and Does Body & Pen.

    Dsatow sorry about my last response. I know your trying to be helpful. I was initially just trying to have a powerful attack instead of several powers. In the game that I’m basing this on, the player can break a reinforced door on a 1-2 on a D6. So I wondered, could I put does Body on a Normal Dice attack so if he hits a door in Hero terms, he may not bust the door but some Body would get through and weaken the door for the next blow or two. So by Raw I can’t. That’s fine, unto plan B. Traditionally Iron Hand is bought as AP and if I use the optional rule for bare hands bend steel, I might have a winner.

    Because their martial arts are so powerful that even normal defenses take some body.

    LL that’s who I assumed too. (Also I don’t have any of the most current PRIMUS so there’s that 😁)

    I looked at that too. But I find it odd on how Killing attacks (in general) work better than any other power.

    Btw, I know the major problem I’m having is with myself. I’m trying to do an exact translation of one rules into another instead of a paraphrasing it.

    Wouldn’t you have to make it at least 1 pip Killing? Or did you and I missed it?

    That’s an interesting way to do it. Actually what might save me the headache is to use the suggested bend steel with bare hands pg. 142 CC. All objects that are hit with the super martial arts suffer x2 Body. If I put Iron Fist at 8D6 and define reinforced door at 4PD 1 Body then I should be able, unless I roll bad (which is ok) bust the door open.

    Normal Dice and Does Body & Pen.

    What I would like to do is adapt Kung Fu 2100 to Hero. I have both the original Pocket box game and Gurps version. Terminators can break a reinforced door on a 1-2 on a D6. Gurps just has power blow and breaking blow for Iron Fist. I could go and buy tunneling vs doors but I still need a power to destroy equipment. I know Killing attacks is the most obvious however commonly martial maneuvers built as super skills are still bought as HA. Hence I wanted to still go HA but since it’s so Super, it can still do some body even if the object resists the initial blow. Also I like the idea from the pocket box version (yes it’s super simple) though that you can lose an ability by fighting. It’s a way to track damage, after you lose all abilities then you fall unconscious. I’m thinking this is best represented by a physical limitation.

    Funny thing is now I don’t need this mechanic anymore. Thx again guys.

    Hugh I envisioned only roughly 1 BOD per Die.

    Normal Dice and Does Body & Pen.

    Except that’s not what I want it to do. A high enough Normal DC against a modest DEF results with Body damage. I want that. However with a high enough DeF, I want a little Stun and a little Body to get through. I don’t want a separate mechanic. However if I must, what about linking 1D6 Killing to the Penetrating attack no STR bonus Avad/NND (Def is impenetrable) ?
  15. Ninja-Bear

    Normal Dice and Does Body & Pen.

    Yes but when you put penetrating on normal dice, it only becomes Stun. Therefore I wonder if I put on does Body, then whatever Body rolled on the Normal dice with Penetrating does Body.

    Semi seriously though, wouldn’t Viper have some sort of Media company in its holdings, at least to smear our heroes? Sorta like J. Johnah Jameson but for Viper?

    Oh I thought one time of a test of your heroes. Have them rescue <insert despised politician of choice>. And remind them of any Code vs Killings, True Hero, Patriotic, etc. or is that to evil! 😁

    I think the hardest game to GM is a game where you want the illusion of it being deadly but not be.

    For a twist, what if the President is more hero than villain? He’s a “villain” because of a Media (Viper) character assasination? I.e. Invicticus eaither became a Hero or really was all the time. (LL I think your getting your news from Barbie Binkers 😁)

    Zslane im not sure of your fantasy reads but if it’s Game of Thrones, I’d feel safer playing CoC.

    Cursed item creation

    I don’t think that there are any hard and fast rules for what you want. That being said, do you know what threshold you want? You could put an automatic side effect on the dagger that triggers a transformation attack. I’m thinking once you transformed the dagger into cursed dagger, then it gains the summon monster power. This could be a rewritten of the original side effect being summon monster.

    More space news!

    Considering what fossils record, that’s not a strong answer. Really, can petrified bones hold magnetic properties?

    Martial Hero

    I find it interesting that in Champions 3rd ed, under the description of each maneuver of martial arts, martial punch can be described as any fancy martial technique and martial kick (besides the usual kicks) can be a backfist!

    Btw I’m not arguing that everyone should have access to Flying Dodge. However the basis the Hyperman asserts its limitation, is fine for an GM to choose but not as a RAW interpretation.

    Things not covered/addressed in Hero

    Hugh to go along with your post, the problem can be people get too attached to their characters. Depending on the genre, I like the idea of templates for characters if the game is going to be really deadly. For example, I always had it in my head to run Agents through an Aliens (movie) style game. Nobody wants to be outta a game early so I envision extras that could be used by players in a pinch. I figure though if the characters are prebuilt or quick template builds, then the players haven’t invested a lot of time that if death comes they shouldn’t be upset with it.
