  1. Thanks for the explanations. I guess my confusion was that it was always mentioned as a martial maneuver and not listed in core rules. I like the idea and it does simulate something I see in comics often. Like many of the "brick tricks", I plan to allow it in my games as a thing anyone with the right set of powers/skills/situation can do.
  2. Then it is settled. Champions Battleground II shall include Pee Wee's Playhouse.
  3. I wonder if anyone here has tried to build an object (walls, floors, computer banks, bank vaults, etc) as a character in HD? I understand that walls would be difficult since you would need to make a separate record for each location but it would be an interesting experiment. You could then include the elements of the environment into a Combat Record and have that available as a target in the Combat Manager. Since an object wouldn't have a SPD, it wouldn't come up in the combat order. All you would need to add is PD and ED with any applicable rDef or Power Defense. You could eve add Powers like force fields and such. Sure, the "character" would have the default characteristics of STR, SPD etc but those can be ignored. Is this a weird thing to do, I can't tell any more.
  4. Forgive me if this is a distraction from the thread but could someone please explain what exactly a Flying Dodge is? In real world terms, what is it a character is trying to do? I have seen Flying Dodge talked about but never knew what it was. Thanks!
  5. Hi, Steve. It just occurred to me I have been on this board since the beginning and have never posted a question here I have been using Hand Attack adders (eg. +4d6 HA) for years and, for some reason, this question had never come up. Say I have a character with 10 STR (so, 2d6 punch) with a +4d6 HA adder defined as an electric shock gauntlet. My normal punch would be defensible with PD but my HA is defined as vs ED. Do I now have a 6d6 punch vs ED or do I have to split the damage between PD & ED?
  6. There was an Elrod of Melvinbone in the Cerebus comic. Always one of my favorites.
  7. My usernamesake, Boll Weevil was based on Howling Mad Murdock from The A Team. That show started in 1983 when I first started playing Champions. Who knew ol' BW would be around longer than the biggest show on TV.
  8. I just downloaded the app and it works great. I love the features it has now even as a work in progress. Great job!! I haven't tried uploading a character yet but the hero-specific dice roller alone makes me happy.
  9. It's been a while since I checked for locals. Anyone in Cincinnati looking for players or interested in learning how to play? I'm in West Chester now but I'm pretty open to playing anywhere in Cincinnati.
  10. This is great. Thanks for sharing!! What are the 1/2, 1/4 etc columns in the DC summary?
  11. How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? -Boll Weevil is one of my first Champions characters, a not-based-on-anyone character that can cling to walls and shoot webs that catch thieves just like flies. I have been on the boards here since 2000. I lurk frequently but haven't posted much lately. What was the first tabletop RPG you played? D&D boxed set in 1981. What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? Champions. I think my first real game other than combat on the included map (with Rosie's Diner!) was the Target Hero supplement. I've never been great at GMing, to be honest, but many times it was the only way to get my friends to play. What are you currently playing/GMing? Nothing currently. My local gaming group broke up years ago and I haven't played since the demise of Hero Central.
