    Rules for groundfighting are found on Pg127 6E2. PS: Groundfighting can eliminate the penalties. You could also take and Environmental Movement for it.

    Easiest system game

    Chaosium's Basic Role Playing is pretty damn easy to learn. Especially the percentage based skill system. The quick-start rules are free: *** clicky ***
  5. So, I'm running a Star Trek game on Hero. The PCs are crew members of an Ambassador Class ship (think Enterprise C) in 2380 (post Star Trek: Nemesis). I am assuming that the ship has civilians on board like the Odyssey class ships we saw in Next Gen, both dependents of Starfleet personnel and civilian contractors. My question is: what do the civilians on board a starfleet vessel do to pass the time and feel productive? The only examples I can remember from Next Gen are Wesley Crusher, a teenage genius who became an acting crew member and later a starfleet cadet; Keiko O'Brien, a biologist who passed the time teaching; and Guinan, who ran the bar/lounge and was not a dependent. What kinds of jobs could the non-starfleet people on the ship have? What would they be trusted with as far as ship operations and security matters? Obviously the minor children on board will be in school, and there could be civilian as well as starfleet teachers working full or part time. I've already decided that the big recreation lounge (ala Ten Forward on the Enterprise D) will be run by a civilian. What other jobs can people think of? I'm looking at about 200 civilians on board and I don't want them all to be twiddling their thumbs.
  6. It's still possible to use the expanded, purchase by category version of the Systems Operation skill when using a 5th edition template. Is there a way to enable this in 6th edition? I'd like to run a hard sci-fi game in 6th edition and use the category version of System Ops (and Electronics). How hard would it be to mod a 6th edition template for this? Would I be better off building it as a custom skill?

  8. Running a BuffyTVS game and I just realized that there are stats for stakes in Hero that I can find. I'm thinking its basically a Dagger or Shortsword depending on length, with lower PD/ED for being made of wood (per Fantasy Hero). Anyone know of official stats anywhere?
  9. I was looking through Ultimate Equipment and once again I was profoundly disappointed with the write ups for modern hand-to-hand weapons. Basically they are all some variant of club, inducing things like hammers which are written as killing attacks in fantasy games. So I am playing in a zombie survival horror game and my PC is using a crowbar as her primary weapon. What stats should it have? I'm thinking it's basically a mace that can be used one or two handed, maybe with an OCV penalty as it is not balanced as a weapon. Anybody got stats for that? Also, what type of fantasy axe would a modern fire axe compare to?

    DunDraCon 2018

    I have submitted a Fantasy Hero game based on a game I ran at KublaCon 2017: Greyhawk Hero: Hateful Things Nearly a hundred years ago the Hateful Wars cleansed the Lortmil Mountains of Goblins, Orcs, and other evil humanoids. Now rumors of ghostly lights in the mountains around the former Hobgoblin city of Grot-Ugrat have prompted Thane Bolor Blackaxe to send messengers to the Ulek states seeking aid and offering great reward for those brave enough to win the day. Your party of adventurers have assembled at the dwarven fortress of Hoch Dunglorin to listen to his plan. https://deejmeister.net/dundracon-2018/

    Dr. Macabre write up?

    I swear I have seen a write up for Dr. Macabre (bearer of the Janus Key) in one of the many champions books, but I cannot find it. Anyone know where he is written up?

    Dr. Macabre write up?

    Never mind. I found it in the 5th edition Champions Universe book. Good thing I kept both editions...
  13. In the Champions Universe, the undead do not have civil rights but life forms descended from "human stock" do: A number of Supreme Court rulings have stated that the Fourteenth Amendment‚Äôs guarantees of due process and equal protection do not apply to sentient aliens, extradimensional entities, artifcial intelligences, and the undead, because they are not ‚Äúpersons‚ÄĚ under the law. On the other hand, they do apply to mutants, mutates, clones, and genetic constructs based on human stock. Congress has, however, passed laws granting at least limited rights to all ‚Äúindependent, freewilled, sentient entities‚ÄĚ in American territory. In my current Champions Universe game, the PC has met and rescued a pair of flesh golems from a would-be wizard (he used a book to make them). They are basically like Frankenstein's Monster and the Bride, free willed creatures made from human body parts sewn together and animated by alchemical magic. They have decided to turn themselves in to PRIMUS/DOSPA and request assistance in establishing themselves as sentient beings with civil rights under the law (Android, Artificial Intelligence, and Alien Life-form Rights act of 1979). My concern is that according to Stronghold (pg 30) even the Triple-A Act does not apply to the Undead: However this law and all related laws state and federal make one exception: The undead do not have civil rights. The legal ramifications of that, particularly the question of who owns the formerly deceased's property, combined with the typically evil or destructive nature of such beings, has kept them outside the ambit of the laws. I'm imagining the difficulty that a social worker or attorney would have in convincing a judge that a being made of the body parts of multiple murder victims and animated with magic has more in common with an AI robot than with a zombie. How do you all think this should go?

    How Do You Print???

    Re: How Do You Print??? Question Man: Some things I have learned along the way about printing in HTML; 1) Use Internet Explorer if you have it. Firefox dosent' seem to like the HTML sheets. 2) Check you print settings in your browser, and blank out your headers and such. Also adjusting the margins can help center your printout. 3) Reducing the text font size in your browser can make the sheets print cleaner and reduce the number of printed pages if you have a lot of powers/skills.
