    Book recommendation

    Super Powereds is an excellent series. Drew Hayes did a fantastic job with that series. His other two superhero books Forging Hephaestus and Corpies are not near as good.

    Duplicator without Duplication

    Um...I'm going to say Auto correct on a misspell of Attackable. How does Stretching Make Dupes that are attackable. Since they are there and gone in an instant. What Massey is saying is what I was thinking of. People can attack the Duplicates, but it is not that important because there are more of them. They don't just appear, there was always somebody there. If it would be unreasonable for someone to have been there, you could not use the Teleport to have gotten there. The idea is similar to Doc Democracy's The Maddening Crowd, and my own thoughts on not being all that happy with Duplication powers most of the time.

    Duplicator without Duplication

    Thanks for the thoughts so far. I have looked at The Maddening Crowd in another thread about duplication. That was the thread that was making me interested in working on duplication that did not use that power but would mimic it in some way. I am not certain how Stretching makes duplicates that are intractable. Though it is certainly a different way to approach the issue.

    Duplicator without Duplication

    I was working on an old character of my wife's and having some thoughts on it. The character is a Shapeshifting Duplicator. In the past we ran with duplicates in and gave her powers based on the number of duplicates that she had at a time. I was thinking of ways to run a "Duplicator" SFX without using any points in Duplication. One aspect that I liked was a "teleport" effect allowing her to move about to where another one of her Duplicates would have been (effectively there is no master body). So I follow using that as a teleport effect with a -1/4 restriction that a Duplicate must have been able to be in that position prior (kind of close to Must Cross Intervening Space). The aspect that I was not sure about is if there should be any sort of "Invisible" power effect or similar of if the SFX on the duplicate would explain that it is not actually a teleport, but instead another dupe taking actions. Thanks for any thoughts.

    I agree with the Speed 5. I tried him as the Speed 4, but it just did not seem to sit right with me. I think he works well as a 5 and could see him at the 6, which is where I initially built him. But I agree that for me to see what they do in the comics against the other characters, the Speed increase is needed for characters such as this. Also, one of my groups favorite aspects about Champions, Shadowrun, and a few other games is that some characters get more actions. It provides a very different way to differentiate one character from another that many games do nothing to provide.

The 50% reduction, high defenses to start, and a good pool of Stun to work through should allow him to do whatever he feels he wants to do without any fear of getting to hurt in this regard. ] - END=0 97 11) Resistant Protection (27 PD/27 ED), Impenetrable (+1/4), Hardened (+1/4) (121 Active Points); Perceivable (-1/4) - END=0 3 12) Running +8m (8m/16m total) (8 Active Points); Increased Endurance Cost (x2 END; -1/2), Linked (Resistant Protection; -1/2), no Noncombat movement (-1/4) - END=2 5 Superhero Briefs: Resistant Protection (5 PD/5 ED) (15 Active Points); Requires A Roll (10- roll; Must be made each Phase/use; -1 1/4), OIF (-1/2) - END=0 5 Trained by Professor X: Mental Defense (5 points total) - END=0 Powers Total: 218 Martial Arts 4 Bearhug I: 1/2 Phase, +0 OCV, +0 DCV, 8d6 / 16d6 Crush, Must Follow Grab 4 Deadly Smash: 1/2 Phase, -2 OCV, +0 DCV, HKA 2 1/2d6 / HKA 5d6 +1 4 Grab: 1/2 Phase, +0 OCV, -1 DCV, Grab Two Limbs, 10 STR for holding on 4 Punch: 1/2 Phase, +2 OCV, +0 DCV, 6d6 / 14d6 Strike 4 Toughness: 1/2 Phase, +2 OCV, +2 DCV, Block, Abort Martial Arts Total: 20 Skills 4 +2 PSLs to offset non-Aerodynamic Penalty when Throwing 4 +2 CSLs Fastball Special 3 Breakfall 11- 3 Climbing 11- 3 Hoist 11- 2 KS: College Educated 11- 0 Language: Russian (idiomatic) (4 Active Points) 3 Language: English (completely fluent) 3 Power: Brick Tricks 12- 2 PS: Artist 11- 2 PS: Farmer 11- 5 Teamwork 12- Skills Total: 34 Talents 12 Heroic Luck: Combat Luck (6 PD/6 ED) 6 +2/+2d6 YUMMY!: Striking Appearance (vs. all characters) Talents Total: 18 Complications 20 Code Against Killing: Psychological Complication (Common; Total) 15 Code of X: Psychological Complication: (Common; Strong) 20 Familial Bonds: Dependent NPC Frequently (Incompetent) [Notes: Colossus is haunted by the lives that have been lost.

It might not be a pretty cycle, and it is going to be one that eats up his Code Against Killing afterwards, but this powerhouse just reaches out and kills people at times when things have pushed him too far. While Proteus was a planned move, Riptide was more of a spur of the moment kind of thing. Colossus even fully intended to continue going in slaughtering the Marauders but made his recovery check. Watch out for the gentle giant! ] Complications Points: 150 Colossus is one of the hearts of the new X-Men. To me growing up it was all about the friendship between Nightcrawler, Colossus, and Wolverine. While I loved Banshee's power set and always wanted to see more on him, these characters and their interaction is what made the book what I wanted to keep reading. Colossus is a major powerhouse who is defined by the transformation that he undergoes. Even without his powers on, he should not be a slouch in a lot of fights. I dropped his Dex and Int to 9, because he always seems slow, both mentally and physically. Cyclops used to own him regularly in combat because Colossus was so convinced of how his power would see him through the day. It isn't enough to drop him in any significant way, but does represent that he is a little behind where starting heroes are on those stats. Reading the information that I could find on him, they say things like how he can take a tank shell to the chest without problem. I made him really tough individual, and think that his physical defenses should show him through most fights that he gets into. He picked up Toughness so that he can try to block for other people when the time comes, though they have to be within a certain range of him. The big drawback on the Russkie is that he is big and slow. In a battle where the fight is highly mobile he is going to be limited to throwing things at his enemies. It is a problem that characters like him, the Thing, and a few others have. Hulk can get where he wants to go with his incredible leaping, but Colossus is stuck where he is most of the time. I increased his movement speed a bit with some points when he is armored up, but that is only going to help him so much. Speaking of throwing things...I buffed up his ability to perform the Fastball Special since he is the character that started the whole trend, or at least he and Wolverine are the team that gave it a name. It was always a signature move and when it happened, you knew something awesome was in the works. Especially in UXM #142, that was a fastball special to remember! His OCV and DCV lag behind. The DCV is not that important for his defenses, and the OCV is made up for with his standard Martial Maneuver of "Punch" which gives him 2 more points. If he gets to melee with you, and you are not the Blob, Juggernaut, or similar then you are going to be in trouble. His weaknesses are primarily not exploitable by enemies in a straight up fight, but Magneto can easily use him as a wrecking ball (and has) against the rest of the team. The complications that he has lean towards his big heart, and how it tears him up for those he cares about to be hurt. Colossus.hdc

I really tried to squeeze him into a 400 point jacket and when I saw how that looked early on just decided it was not worth it. So I bumped him up to 500 and called it good. In Telepathy he should be able to make mince meat out of Marvel Girl, but that is the way it is supposed to be. I brought his Psionics down from a 20- (Best ever) because I felt that Shadow King is more knowledgeable about those things in a lot of ways. However, in those ranges it is really just quibbling over small bits on how good individual people are. It was similar with his knowledge of mutation, I felt that Apocalypse would have a better understanding of that. His Strength might seem high the way that I rate things (I consider 'normal Strength' to be under 10) but he works out a lot to keep himself in shape, but he just works what he can. There are a lot of old scenes from the 80s of him in the Danger Room doing PT with Lilandra. I mean, I don't think that Charles is having his students load him into his chair every morning and into bed at night. Nor do I think he has bathroom assistance...then again in that awesome chair he got in the 90s maybe he doesn't need to get out to use the bathroom anymore. His flaws are mostly the same, but his dedication to the Dream of X is Total, rather than the Strong. The truth is that he is willing to do some bad things to keep his dream alive. In the old days he even messed with normal humans minds all the time to make them forget the X-Men. It is funny to go back and read those books and compare them against the attitude that he had later in the books where mind wipes should not be done. Professor X.hdc

I know that in the comics he was far more hesitant to use his powers than Cyclops was. The danger was that he was an absolute danger to anyone who he used them on. So I really tried to pump up the danger that he has in combat. However, I kept him with Killing Attacks which means he should be really hesitant to use his powers. Because of the danger of using his powers I gave him some real OOMPH in what they had. That was why I added the Stunning attack. I initially was thinking of just adding some damage for purposes of only determining whether the target was stunned. When I brought that up, I was told that it might be better to use the Change Environment. He is a lot like Cyclops, but more dangerous in the power that he has but a lot less Skilled in a number of ways. Havok v4 Spd 4.hdc

    I remember liking the VPP approach that you did with characters on your Justice League. But we tried similar at the table and it did not turn out as well as I hoped. I know I am very hesitant to use VPPs on a lot of characters, but I think that is just from years seeing the STOP sign over them and having nobody to really teach me how to play the game. I looked at VPPs on some of the characters, but did not like them as much as the MPP which is where I generally lean myself.

    Wow, thanks! I hope that Iceman and the Speed 5 characters were also good to see.

She has a lot of utility, and some serious bang with her powers. She can fly the group around but was never used for long distances unlike Polaris (except X-Men #3), so the speed is not that fast for her. She can throw up shields around the group, which is something she frequently did. The points spread on her fairly well. There wasn't a need to stretch to get to 400, and I didn't feel the need to cute much back either. So it worked out fairly well for her. Putting her up finishes off the original X-Men. Which makes me happy to get them all posted up. Marvel Girl.hdc

    Side Effect on MPP Access

    Re: Side Effect on MPP Access @ Escafarc - To perhaps better illustrate what I am saying let me give an example. Let us say that someone has to sacrifice a virgin once a day to gain access to their MPP. However, once that virgin has been sacrificed within the past 24 hours they are able to use the individual slots in the MPP freely. @ Both - Thanks for the answers.
