    Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

    Our Heroes: Amon-Ra: Archaeologist who found an artifact that is a conduit to an ancient god. Diamondback: Exposure to a strange crystal gave her immense strength and durability. Double-Time!: Given incredible running speed during a lab accident. Faceless: FBI agent with the ability to assume the shape of any person he sees. Ka-Pow!: 17 year old boxer and mechanic who's a bit more than human. Professor Polar: Discoverer of "cold energy". Shard: Exposed to the same crystal as Diamondback, but instead has the ability to grow and control similar crystals. Tarraingteacht: Agent Carter's skills with Polaris's powers. Zoltan the Magnificent: Stage magician who also knows real magic. ** Diamondback [OOC] -- I don’t play these games for realism. *** Zoltan [in reference to hitting someone from behind] -- That would not be honorable. I’d wait until none of you were watching. *** Diamondback [while the group was still in New York] -- If you think you need to go through South America to get to the Vatican. . . *** Faceless -- This is a plan where our psych lims cannot get in the way.

    Battle mat dimensions - your input appreciated

    if you're going hexless, then 2m to the inch is a pretty common scale and equivalent to Hero's historic scale of 2m per hex. By that measurement, 48 inches would get you 96 meters (slightly longer than a football field at 105 yards). 36 inches would be 72 meter (!79 yards).

    Roll Low, Sweet Chariot

    This is how I've presented the to hit mechanic for over a decade. The export format I created for Hero Designer per-calculates the to hit target number automatically. You can see an example of the character sheet here and you'll find the combat values on the 3rd page.

    Combat Record Export NPE

    Okay, so I tried moving everything to a temp folder on my C drive and got the same behavior so I did some experimenting. I loaded up the characters one at a time and did the export and was fine up through Faceless, Ka-Pow!, Prof Polar, Terraingteacht and Zoltan. As soon as I added Shard, I got the error. Next, I unloaded Shard and tried the export with no problems. Added Double-Time! and got the error again. Unloaded Double-Time! and loaded Diamondback and got the error again. After that I restarted HD and decided to try loading characters in a different order. I was good up through Amon-Ra, Diamondback, Double-Time!, Shard, Prof Polar, Faceless and Terraingteacht. Once I added Ka-Pow! I got the error. Unloaded Ka-Pow! and and still got the error. Finally, I copied all my stuff and moved it to a linux box I've got available. Everything worked fine there. So, I'm leaning towards blaming something in how Avecto Defendpoint handles security. Thanks for looking into it.

    The Classic Rock Thread

    One thing I've noticed, having brothers that are 11 and 16 years younger than me, (step) nibblings 20+ years younger, plus friends with teen and twenty-something kids; younger generations seem more likely to be cognizant of prior generations' music than me and my peers were in our teens and twenties. I blame YouTube.

    Combat Record Export NPE

    When attempting to export a group of PCs using the Combat Record Export feature, I'm getting an error stating that the process couldn't be completed. In the attached ZIP file, I've included the following: the hcr template I'm using (DLP_Summary_HTML.hcr) all the characters I'm attempting to export campaign rules that were loaded custom character template my appPrefs.xml trace.log the batch file I use to launch HD (run.bat) The trace.log shows a NPE from getPrefabSkills but I don't have any prefabs loaded. I am running build 20171119 on a Win10 machine. Let me know if you need any more info. HD_Error.zip

    The Classic Rock Thread

    My folks listened to all that as well (except replace ABBA with the Bee Gees). Heck, they go see Buffett any time he comes to town. Soft rock is still rock, if only barely. A big part of what rock grew out of, yes.

    Luthors Masterplan in Batman vs Superman

    So why would Batman figure he has to kill Superman for something that he knows Supes didn't do? At least it wasn't another goofy real estate scam.

    Focus

    In my current campaign, one of the characters generates cold. By himself, it's a generalized field that's simply colder than the surrounding area (Change Environment plus some Resistant Energy Defense). He also carries a "pistol" that allows him to focus this energy into various types of beams. All of those were built OAF because he can't generate the beams without the specially-designed "pistol".

    Not sure how to rule on this power

    Well, yes. However, he may be banking on the Stun Lotto (which, if he's playing 6E, is going to sorely disappoint).
