    Many 6th Edition villains too tough?

    Yes, I do. The big hitters are behind the scenes until the pcs get enough experience to have a prayer (with smart play and help).

    And I don't intend any disparagement of Hero fans or munchkins.

    Many 6th Edition villains too tough?

    Many Hero gamers are munchkins that are quite capable of building characters that have incredible capacity for the points. At convention games that allow players to bring their own characters, I let them bring whateve they want and dal I h it by using the higher level characters from Champions Villains. It works.

    Douglas and Khymeria, I play Hero and live in San Rafael. Join me at R-Con this January. Check out our website at r-con.info

    DunDraCon 2018

    I am going. Not running anything this year fo a change.
  7. RyanCon is now R-Con! This will be our third year! R-Con is still the premier (and only) RPG convention in the North Bay. It is scheduled for Martin Luther King Day weekend, Friday, January 12, through Sunday, January 14, 2018. The venue is the San Rafael Embassy Suites, located at 101 McInnis Pkwy, San Rafael, CA 94903. Phone: (415) 499-9222. We have 3 conference room suites and a hospitality suite for gaming. We also have the Tiburon Room, which will hold 3 large banquet rounders and have a coffee and tea service. Rooms rent for about $150.00 a night, but it looks like you can get a deal using an online reservation service. Breakfast and free drinks during happy hour is included. There is no charge to attend R-Con. I am asking for donations to help defray the cost of renting the Tiburon Room. There are several Hero System grognards running Champions games that need players and we can always use more GMs. Check it out our website at r-con.info There promises to be a lot of gaming and a lot of catching up with old friends. Don’t miss out! Hope to see you there. Remember, all are welcome at R-Con. Invite your friends!
  8. This was also a feature of 6E. See 6E1 pg. 149: The class of minds rules are intended to provide flavor and intriguing options for Mental Powers — not as a cheap way for abusive players to try to make their characters immune to most mental attacks. Unless the GM indicates otherwise, assume all Player Characters in the campaign are affected as if they belong to the Human class of minds, regardless of their nature, where they come from, or the like. For example, a PC who’s an android is a machine, but if he’s smart enough and self-willed enough to function like a human being, he should probably be affected as both the Human and Machine classes of minds (for which he may be allowed to take a Physical Complication; see 6E1 425).
  9. Indy523 Yes, this is another reasons why the APG entry on cyberkinesis could use some fleshing out. I think if you take mind control with the machine class of minds you will certainly want telepathy as well. Good points.
  10. I think if you have classes of minds and machine class costs as much as human, you need to allow mental powers with the machine class minds descriptor to affect any reasonably complex electronic device within dramatic and genre sense. The APG has some good starting points, but I think it could use a bit more fleshing out with respect to a focus that has a user interface.
  11. I like this idea, but what would you use for the DMCV of the suit?
  12. I just read, and think I will use, the advice in the APG. Use a DMCV of 3 and AP/5 for the EGO of the machine if it is a focus, +5 or +50% (whichever is less) if it is IIF. Use the table for EGO if it is not a focus.
  13. I have a character in my game who has telepathy and mind control that only works against machine class minds. How would that work if he wanted to interfere with the operating system of a villain's suit of powered armor? Would this only work if the villain's suit of powered armor had a built in AI? If not, what would the DMCV of the suit's operating system be? What would it's EGO be?

  15. Re: MYTHIC HERO: What Do *You* Want To See? I would pay $200 for a color hardback with art (even public domain art if selected with discretion).
