    Star Trek "Recovery!" - Trek by committee

    Trek's producers response to this topic would be summed up by the 2:39 statement in this video

    Spiderman Homecoming

    The Helicarrier from Avengers was retired by Winter Soldier. Fury pulls it our of mothballs for Avengers 2. Agents of Shield had a story line of a mysterious project the Culson was silent on until after Age of Ultron when it was reveled that the project was a refit of the retired helicarrier.

    MYTHIC HERO: What Do *You* Want To See?

    Or a Pulp Hero supplement. Lovecraft will put his material into public domain for other writers to pen a story in the setting via his will. But this was well before the advent of RPG. DG&D with the Cthulhu Mythos was published at a time when the estate licensed the mythos a publisher. Ever hear of Call of Cthulhu RPG? That publisher sued TSR. TSR opted to reprint without the Cthulhu Mythos and Elric saga characters. (TSR heard from the Elric people also.) TSR could have won the lawsuit but decided to settle as it was cheaper. TSR was still a small company in late 70s.

    Supergirl

    they mentioned the Flash talked to Vibe in an off air scene about his crossing into supergirl's world. Not everything has to be on screen.

    Supergirl

    When Buffy did it's musical episode, there was a bid emotional reveal during it. Flash, not so much. Buffy told the scubies that she thinks that she was in heaven when they raised her from the dead. Flash, we just confirmed the characters feels from the year(s)-long love story arcs. I also liked the Buffy episode where they could not speak. Joss was smart to have almost no sound track in that episode to emphasize the silence.

    Powerless

    I have enjoy the first two shows well enough. It needs some polishing, like most shows in their first year.

    More space news!

    Astrophysicist have speculated about Hyper-nova. They usually result from Super-massive stars sometimes called a Hyper Star that burn for less than a million years before going boom. But these Hyper Stars are through to have existed in the early universe, like the first couple of billions of years. I have not heard of astronomers actually observing a Hyper-Star or a Hyper-nova and 3 billion light years is too close for one. The wiki on hyper-nova suggests that a hyper-nova could be from something else.

    Distinctive Features: Pure Soul

    There is no reason that a Pure Soul cannot be a power and a complication at the same time. Sure you make the player pay for the befits of Positive Reputation or Striking Appearance and allow it as a complication at the same time. The complication becomes that he will be targeted by the evil supernatural power that be. Either they want to destroy him or tempt him into corruption will be based on your setting. I read a Urban Fantasy series where there were greater immortals, Angles and Demons, and lesser immortals like Succubus, Imps Vampires and others. The lesser immortals were ties to a greater immortal and had to pay for their immortally by corrupting mortals or inspiring Mortals to goodness. The Demons wanted the lesser immortals tempt the pure souls of the world into corruption because that was worth more in the hierarchy of Hell/

    Create Water/Food, Purify Water/Food spells

    I realized that there is a difference between the LS and Transform builds. The Transform build will eliminate poisons that have been added to the food but the LS build will not. Unless you add in LC:Immunity to non-magical Poisons, 5AP. All the limits would make the end cp to be 2 or 3.

    Create Water/Food, Purify Water/Food spells

    Making someone think that they are not hungry with a mind control build would be enchantment/charm or you could go with images or mental images for an illusion magic school build

    Create Water/Food, Purify Water/Food spells

    I have been defining sub catorgiores of Magic special effect. So the LS build would need the following variable special effect +1/4. Creating food out of nothing would be magic:Conjuration:Creation sf. Purifying food would be Magic:Alteration. And a spell to make you think that you were not hungry would be magic:Enchamnent/Charm. Secondarly, marking something inherent is normally is reserved for something that is part of you all the time like an extra limb or thick skin (resistant defenses). Creating something out of nothing and making it inherent most likely should be more than the normal +1/4 advantage it is.

    Create Water/Food, Purify Water/Food spells

    I am running a Fantasy Space Game based on the old TSR game world of Spelljammer. Swords and Sorcery in Space with Wheel-lock firearms and some Steam-punk gear that tends to blow up. The PC are currently running a ship with 10 persons aboard and will get an upgrade to a 30 man ship when/if they deliver the princess to her political marriage that seals a political alliance. So, the Druids spells need to cover a number of persons.

    Create Water/Food, Purify Water/Food spells

    I am thinking a simple system, for create food 1 body = 1 meal created. Purify Food and Water will destroy poisons if the total is enough to transform the poison into something harmless. Most toxins that cause just an upset stomachs will be a negative level or more to a stat roll, so 2 AP per neg level and per meal. More toxins powerful will be a drain or a blast or RKA sometimes with damage over time. so 5 AP and up per meal. The spell casters in this world have an Arcane or Faith VPPs with an matched skill to cast and a matched Endurance Reserve to power the spells. This is based in part on the Spelljammer Setting from AD&D 2ed published by TSR. So the spells should be: Purify Food & Drink Transform, Minor 4d6 (Spoiled Food and Drink into Edible Food and Drink) AOE 1m Radius +1/4, Concentration 1/2 DCV -1/4, Extra Turn to cast -1 1/4, Gestures (1 hand) -1/4, Incantations -1/4, No Range -1/2, Limited Target (Food Items and Drinks) -1/4, All or Nothing -1/2, Requires a Faith Power Roll -1/2. BP:20, AP:25 Real Cost:3 Create Food & Water Transform, Major 3d6 (Creates a tasteless porridge and water) AOE 1m Radius +1/4, Concentration 1/2 DCV -1/4, Extra 10 Minutes to cast -2, Gestures (1 hand) -1/4, Incantations -1/4, No Range -1/2, Requires a Faith Power Roll -1/2 BP:30 AP:38 Real Cost: 8

    Create Water/Food, Purify Water/Food spells

    The life support is interesting but I want the Purify to have less AP than the Create Purify Food & Drink Transform, Minor 4d6 (Spoiled Food and Drink into Edible Food and Drink) AOE 1m Radius +1/4, Concentration 1/2 DCV -1/4, Extra Turn to cast -1 1/4, Gestures (1 hand) -1/4, Incantations -1/4, No Range -1/2, Limited Target (Food Items and Drinks) -1/4, All or Nothing -1/2. BP:20, AP:25 Real Cost:6 Create Food & Water Transform, Major 3d6 (Creates a tasteless porridge and water) AOE 1m Radius +1/4, Concentration 1/2 DCV -1/4, Extra 10 Minutes to cast -2, Gestures (1 hand) -1/4, Incantations -1/4, No Range -1/2 BP:30 AP:38 Real Cost: 9
  15. Can anyone help me make up spells to Create water, Create Food and Purify Food and Drink? For a Druid type spell caster that uses a VPP for their spell casting.
