  1. Yes, I will make sure to alert my GM about these changes once I alert him. While I do see him every week, the game is bi-weekly, giving me time to change things up if need be. Doing the math using the hero builder, I got only about 5 extra points out of it. The real purpose was to just adjust the multipower to keep up with the rest of the party: at most I can dish out 3d6 Killing damage in melee, while another player is dealing out 4d6 Killing, placing mine at a lower damage. However, those 5 extra points was all I really needed to update the character build a bit better. While I do have a decent amount of Recovery which offsets my use of constantly changing slots if need be, at a current rate of 20, a bit over half of that is a boost with a specific limitation that it turns off if hit by attacks made of a certain material, akin to silver hitting a lycanthrope. Kendrium materials, for the record. That drops how much I recover, and it's far from being overpowering thus far since we've done enough sessions that the math all works out.
  2. Alright, for sake of ease I'll go that 1/4 limitation, just so I don't wrack my brain around END Drain. Since it will be for all the MP power, going MP-only is my best bet then. Thanks for the input here!
  3. So, I'm currently in a game where my character is a beast-man sort whose claws are being played as a multipower, indicating various uses of his claws ranging from the standard, cut your face open to more mystical means such as a ghostly aura around his claws that drain physical defenses. I'm trying to think of how to get the most out of this multipower, especially since we started with only 300 character points, and I'm currently at 31 experience points earned. Looking through the Limitations, I noticed Increased Endurance Cost has a section noted as Under Certain Circumstances. What I got to thinking, is to change his tactics/powers around with the multipower, he has to increase his endurance use to alter and suppress what he can do. I'd imagine it's a MP-Only modifier, unless I'm reading into this whole thing entirely wrong. Regardless, is it viable to essentially increased the endurance cost only for activation and use normal END costs after, or is that a whole issue that a DM might have trouble with?
  4. So, while working on a character for a potential game in the near future, I came across the idea of using the Unified disadvantage to combine Regeneration and additional Recovery to act as a 'healing factor' of sorts for the character's body. However, my dilemma comes to this: Do powers with the Unified Disadvantage each get their individual costs reduced, or is it just one or the other? In addition, can said powers combined with Unified still okay to have additional disadvantages unique to said powers?

    Alright, have a good weekend! I'll check in every now and then in case you have news regardless of what it is. ^^

    Right. Did you want to make a yahoo group now then so we aren't spamming the forums? I'll give you my email if need be. Conveniently, it's a yahoo email~

    I'm used to doing a lot of forum roleplays, so I might get carried away with posts at times. No worries on wanting story~ I just like to do things right with a system, because the powers that be know I've experienced how messy D&D 3.5 rules can be at times. Yeesh. Anyways, back on topic. Did you have a place to do play by posts in mind already with something set up? Or did you want an overview of a character I can mock up first?

    You know what, I'll bite. I'll probably mess up super bad, but I suppose I can at least attempt the first act or something solo and hope somebody joins us so I don't have to suffer my stupidity at the system alone. |D lol

    Right, well. If it's done as a solo game, how exactly does that work? Would you base it off the character I make? Or did you have a plot/setting in mind already?

    As tempting as that is, give me a moment to think about it. I'm not that experienced with the HERO System like I mentioned, especially a Dark Champions setting: all of the characters I've mocked up using Hero Designer all involve powers to some degree, so I'm not sure if I'd do it correctly for this specific genre. |D However, doesn't mean there is no chance of me saying yes to a solo game. Just let me think on it a bit.

    Hmm. Should we try giving Alder a private message? Perhaps a notice may show up in his email or something.

    Hmm, alright, I think that covers my questions for now unless I come up with more. At this point it comes down to doing a bit of research on things on my end, as well as what everyone else who takes interest in this game desires. Not sure what Alder thinks of it all, since he hasn't posted anything further.

    Right, to place my official preference for edition in, I have to go with 6th Ed. so I'm not completely lost. Got more pdfs of that edition than I do 5th or any other. Law enforcement, military, or criminal background to some degree I can work with no problem. However, will you allow a character who is not entirely human anymore (with skills that aren't power based of course) by why of the 'Genetic experiments gone wrong/what have you' thing listed under the Genre Conventions? Or did you just want straight human with no enhancements of any kind? I started looking at characters from Batman for ideas on things, though I'm not 100% certain if the Batman-verse is a good example of what a Dark Champions game is like. Sorry, I'm weird and like to be sure my thought process gets clarification. |D

    I meant things akin to what Edition you were planning on using, character sheet requirements/restrictions, and even other character archetypes you won't allow other than the obvious things like 'SUPER MAGICAL MAGE-NESS' according to Dark Champions' general setting.

    I'd be up for trying a play by post style, since my schedule can be a bit erratic during the week, and sometimes weekends. However, later on Sunday evenings would be the best bet for me to do a chat room style, my time zone being Central Time in the US. Are there any other aspects you had planned? I'm not too experienced in Champs, 6E being my comfort zone for knowledge of the system, but I was in a play by post campaign for a bit before life hit the Game Master. Likely I'd be asking a lot of questions during creation and what not, so I hope I wouldn't be a bother!
