    Third Edition Renaissance

    I may have already said this, but I think it was on rpg.net...so hopefully I am not repeating myself. Game systems can be divided in several ways, and one of those ways is commonly "Permissive", and "Non permissive". So what does that mean? I'll use a couple of examples, D&D is a non permissive rule set, that means that the answer to "can I do this" is no, unless a rule says otherwise. Champions is/was a permissive rule set, the answer is supposed to default to "Sure, why not?" unless a rule says you can not. So I've been playing Champs since it came out, so thats a lot of rule sets, and rulings to plow through. But I was amazed when 5 "allowed" you to multi attack, and people were not sure if that was good, when you always could. And I had seen it used all the time. It's a permissive rule set, so is there a rule that says you can't? If not "sure, why not?". The answer to almost any question about capability should be "You're a freaking Super hero! Of course you can do that" My take on 5th and 6th is that it is written from a non permissive mind set, it often goes on to tell you the "right" way to build a power, and marks all other ways as "wrong". That is not the Hero way...IMHO...Lol

    That's the one. I am a little worried about the "ego" thing. But I'll wait for the finished product before I freak. Lol. My health is real poor, so I limit my activity. So I have not been tracking the progress. I really do not like 6th, and can just stand Complete. So I hope something based off of 3rd will bring back the magic.
  10. Strangly when I tried to adopt this for Octopus it did not go over well...

    I've been backing a Kickstarter that is trying to redo Champions building up from 3rd. I am hoping it works out.

    Aquaman Spoiler Thread

    I watched it yesterday, and I liked it. Wonder Woman more or less did not disapoint. This movie I can describe as "good" as a comic book movie. Wacky tech/magic, parental/sibling issues, big set piece battles...all good. It is the first DC movie that has turned away from the Darkness inside Night, while wearing black! Tone that they have been using. a solid 6 out of 10.👍
  14. Reply hazy, ask again later.
