  1. I could see them taking a partial approach. A crisis where you end up some worlds, some merged, but still have a multiverse. For example, they might see an advantage to merging Supergirl's earth with the earth of Flash, Green Arrow, Legends, and Batwoman. As for Black Lightning, I'm not sure it will brought into the fold at all. After all, Supergirl was still in its first season and on another network when they crossed it over with Flash. Black Lightning is in its second season on the same network and I haven't heard a peep about possible crossovers. Also, Black Lightning is produced in Atlanta, which is a long way from Vancouver and the rest of the DC shows on the CW
  2. I assume it was seen as a project that might appeal to some older Champions fans, maybe attract some fans to Hero from Ron's fanbase (and possibly the larger Indy RPG fanbase), and to be cynical, make some money off the Hero Games property without having to put in any time or effort.
  3. Yup. Flying Dodge was introduced in UMA 4th. It was not in Ninja Hero 4th.
  4. This is described in the Hero Designer documentation on page 12 under "Changing the Text of an Item".
  5. Yeah, I remember all the early Hero Plus stuff being on floppy disk.
  6. I've got to admit that my thought was that the "Rules Lite" version of Champions Now would not necessarily resemble the Hero System at all but would be a modern Indie RPG-style rule set designed to specifically create the same kind of experiences that Ron Edwards is tailoring 3E Champions to create.
  7. The Hero Designer documentation describes how to Cut and Paste text.
  8. I just updated to the May version and the font scaling has stopped working for me too. I have attached the trace.log file. trace.log
  9. My impression is that Ron wants to create a book about how to create a great superhero role-playing experience. That book will include two ruleselts that players and GMs can use to do so. One ruleset is a revised version of Original Champions (1st-3rd editions). The other would be a new rules set with a more modern indie approach designed to capture the same flavor.
  10. Looks like you're trying to use the Attack Versus Alternate Defense modifier. That modifier is for attacks that work against a different defense that usual (for example, Power Defense instead of Energy Defense). You want to use the Alternate Combat Value modifier which includes the OCV vs. DMCV option you want at +1/4. As a more general comment, if, for some reason, the desired modifier is not available, you can use Custom Modifier. Details on using it are available in the Hero Designer documentation.
  11. Does it really matter how silly a plan Thanos may have? Who cares if it's going to work or not? Isn't the only important thing the threat that he presents to the heroes? And I certainly don't see the MCU as a "realistic superhero" milieu.
  12. When populations start getting out of hand again, he just snaps his fingers again for another culling.
  13. From what I've heard, they've pulled them because the light blue index entries in the original color PDF comes out as a very light grey when printed and apparently not readable in some copies. It's my understanding that the plan is to fix it then offer the POD again. It's unknown how long that will take.
  14. The women's hockey tourney started a couple of days ago. The men's hockey tourney starts on Wednesday (USA vs. Slovenia at 7:10 AM ET/4:10 AM PT on NBCSN). A couple of web sites that might be useful to you instead of the app (or to supplement it). Can't comment on the app itself (as expected, it is not available in Canada): http://olympics.org http://nbcolympics.com
  15. Personally, I tend to design characters with 40 or 50 points of Skills, Generally, they will have several of the standard skills, a few Knowledge Skills, a Language or two, one or two Professional Skills, one or two Area Knowledge Skills, maybe a Culture Skill or two, and, if appropriate, one or more Science Skills.
