    What Have You Watched Recently?

    Saw "Big Hero 6" yesterday. Surprisingly, a good movie.
  2. I'm thinking of an attack which I'm not sure how to build. The attacker throws a ball of energy at an opponent. Assuming the ball hits the opponent, the ball of energy will continue to hit (unless Missile Deflected, it doesn't penetrate a defensive Force Wall, etc). The damage can vary from say, 6d6 Blast Stun to 3d6 RKA. If the low level damage doesn't affect the opponent, the ball of energy can change to it's higher damage in mid-attack. The attacker can eat a hotdog or watch paint dry which the attack continues on its initial damage. Should the attacker decide, the damage will increase. That's kind of my power idea. How would you build it?
  3. Ragitsu, if it's meant just to give water, go with Hugh's write-up. I don't think the other write-ups for damage are what the poster is looking for, since the description is for drinking water or taking a shower.

    How to Build: Dancing weapons?

    It could be built that way, but it doesn't convey an atmosphere of adventure, where the PC can block or at least dodge the dancing sword.

    How to Build: Dancing weapons?

    For myself, I'd go with the Automaton. I've used it and it works.

    In our campaign, "E" has created some of our heros' costumes. That's "E" from The Incredibles.

    Question about published villain origins

    Good point. Published anywhere by Hero Games. I want to avoid magic origins.
  8. Are there any published villains who, in their past, were seriously injured but then due to the wonders of modern science/drugs gained superpowers (and of course got healed)? If so, which ones? I'm thinking of making an Champions game with this in mind.

    Is Area Effect needed for this power?

    IndianaJoe3, TK now allows you to do damage with the power. "A single object" is defined by commonsense understanding of what's being said. If you say a 'yacht', the player is being ridiculous to say a 'yacht' when he means a 'rivet of the yacht'. If you say a 'car', everyone knows what a car is; we don't ask if the gas cap or tailpipe is being referred to (unless there is a problem with the car). To be overly descriptive of what 'an object is' would cause the same problem if a player says "I'm spreading my blast to hit the supervillain"; do you mean the supervillain's clothes, his foci, etc? It's self-explanatory to mean: blast the villain and take some damage you evil foe! However, grabbing a door on a yacht is very specific and the player would have to specify that, thus adding Selective on the Area Effect. However, that's not the case for the power.
  10. The power is TK which en globes one target, regardless of size with a glow which surrounds the entire object, regardless of size (to a point). If it's a 60 foot yacht, the entire yacht will glow, but if it's only a human, you'll only get a man-sized glow. Now, I was thinking of adding Area Effect because if the object is large (like the aforementioned yacht), the entire object takes damage, not just a section of it. If a train engine gets en globed, the entire engine will take damage. The limitation on the Area Effect is that only one object (the one aimed at/targeted) will take the damage; if a dog was nearby, it's not the target and will not take damage. So, help me out with this power. Let's assume a 50 Str TK for purposes of the power.

    Choice of Supervillains

    For published villains, some stay the same, others don't. The majority of the villains I use though are about 50% my own creation, the rest a mix.

    The Sutherland Presidency

    Since I avoid politics in my game, I really really don't like Invictus. I'm with Badger.

    Cyclops didn't have a problem sleeping or having his eye lids hurting when he shut them because his power is hurting him.

    Damage of the Mariana Trench

    In a manner of speaking, someone's going there, although it's going to be a villain. No one's going to kick the bucket if you're wondering.
