    Agree to disagree
  8. Looking for 1 more player for a street level Champions game I'm starting up. This game will take place in Millennium City and feature a dark and crime ridden backdrop. It will be a cyberpunk-lite version of the setting where the promises of the City of the Future have failed to pan out and the people have instead been left with crime, corruption, mega-corporations, and neon holography. Building on 275 points with 50 points in Complications minimum and a 50 AP cap. I have a campaign 1-pager ready for you if you're interested in playing. The City of the Future needs heroes who will defend its citizens, will you answer the call?
  9. Well, there's this thread I started in the Looking For Player section that has a bit of background info. Essentially, I want to take Millennium City as it's currently written (circa 2003-ish) and darken it way up so that it's a cyberpunk-lite dystopian city in 2018. I say lite because I don't want the emphasis to be on hacking and technology as much as a pure cyberpunk game would normally be but I still want the crime, gangs, and mega-corps though...that's just good fun I think it'll be fun, in my head it's basically mashing Batman Begins and Blade Runner together or I suppose Batman Beyond would be an analogous setting just not as far into the future. I have a couple of brand new players at the table so I'm just hoping I don't screw it up for them. I know I'll need to be in teaching mode for the first little while so the kid gloves will need to be on but I fully expect to bloody them up once we get going.
  10. How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? it was the name of a Champions: New Millennium character that I made What was the first tabletop RPG you played? Darksword Adventures, a relatively obscure RPG by Margaret Weis (Author), Tracy Hickman (Author) What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? 2nd Edition AD&D What are you currently playing/GMing? starting a new street level Champions game this weekend When did you start to play Hero? it was the 90s, BBB, leather pants, angsty music...a different time

  12. Maybe it's just me but I can't see any preview images for downloads anymore. I've tried clearing my cache and in a different browser so I don't think it's client side.

    How to Build: Vorpal weapons?

    I wonder if a compound power HKA/Levels with an activation would be appropriate. The more powerful the vorpal the higher the activation would be. You could even add a trigger that fires off on a failed activation so that the user would still get a normal go at hitting the target. Seems OP but the venerable Vorpal Weapon is too ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks for the bug report. I'm actually running Android 8.1 on a Pixel 1 myself but without issues. Have you tried a reinstall?

    HERO System Mobile

    I am pleased to announce the launch of the HERO System Mobile app on both the Google Play Store and Appleโ€™s App Store. You can install the app by searching for it in your app store or by using the links provided. The app is free to use, ad free, and respects your privacy. Google Play - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.herogmtools App Store - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hero-system-mobile/id1352750917?ls=1&mt=8 Amazon App Store - http://a.co/byom955 This project is an extension of an export template I wrote a few months ago. I had so much fun writing that template that I decided to develop a full app. Features Import characters from Hero Designer using this export template Characteristics and Skills may be long pressed and a check will be made Dice rolling tools (3d6, Hit, Damage, and Free Form) The H.E.R.O. tool generates random 250 point 5e supers (shout out to Cassandra for allowing me to use her original idea) Track statistics about your die rolls, including average values, distribution, total stun etc. This is still very much a work in progress and I have plans to add more features as time goes on. For now though I feel that itโ€™s mature enough to release to the general public. Feedback is always welcome either here or at phil.guinchard@gmail.com Happy Hero-ing

    "Always On" Mental Power build help (5th Ed)

    I'd be inclined to build it as a Disadvantage, I think it's more intended to be such.

    We lost a good one.....

    That's very, very sad. He was such an enthusiastic and warm personality...he will be missed. My suggestion; auction the collection off on e-bay or some other auction site and donate the money to a charity in his name.

    Save the Day

    I had the pleasure of being a member of a table last month that Penemue ran. The game was fast and fun playing with a lot of laughs. Highly recommend that you check the game out.

    Marvel Character Write Ups

    Ha, well another way to build the character... Use ""Only in Alternate ID" on your powers/characteristics to represent your second form Buy Instant Change as described earlier Buy Psy Lims to mimic the fact that there's 2 distinct personalities I kinda feel like Multiform is a cleaner (and arguably more appropriate) way to do it but the munchkin in me knows that this way would be cheaper

    Marvel Character Write Ups

    I think your instincts are on point. Like anything in HERO, there's more than one way to do it but I think Multiform is the straight up way to make a character that has 2 (or more) distinct entities in the same body...seems like this concept is crying out for it. You're basically going to be making 2 completely different characters. One character will be rather mundane normal human and the other character will be your ass kicking spirit of vengeance Either character can be designated the "true" form and either may pay for the cost of the Multiform. In this case I would be inclined to pay for the Multiform cost on the "spirit of vengeance" side of the coin but designate the human as the "true" form. The only reason I would pay for it on the "spirit of vengeance" side is because you'll have a very hard time spending 400 points on a "normal" human and not having him look like a super

    How to build Loki

    Probably a good place to start without getting too complicated with things like VPPs would be to look at the following: Images Invisibility Teleporation Shape Shift Between those 4 powers you can really, really be difficult to predict.
