    We lost a good one.....

    I have not been around much and so am just discovering this now. It saddens me. I did not know David outside of this forum, but he was one of my favorite posters here. He will be missed.

    Savage Rifts

    Superheroes is one of the few genres I don't particularly like with Savage Worlds. That being said, the issue you bring up sounds more like a setting issue than a game system issue.

    My friends' daughters love Harley and Ivy
  6. I don't know about most. Magic attacks in Savage Worlds, GURPS, the few Fate settings I've played, Unisystem, Call of Cthulhu, Sixcess, some versions of Cortex, and pretty much every indie game I've ever played has required a roll. The only games, in my experience, that have auto-hit magic is D&D and its clones. And even then, most attack spells either require an attack roll or are area of effect and the single target auto-hit spells have the saving throw mechanic so someone is still having to roll to something to determine the spell's effectiveness. D&D saving throws pretty much only exist as a balancing factor to the fact that the magic was made up ad hoc without any consistent underlying system. I think the Absolute Effect rules and GM discretion cover most cases pretty well. The Absolutes in a gritty, no-magic fantasy or low powered heroic military game would not make sense in a four color comic setting. What absolutes exist, if any, is a Campaign issue, not a system issue with Hero.

    Jokes

    Currently sitting at the front desk at Cray Inc. It's always a bit surreal for me when I run across references to Cray while at work.
  8. I thought the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon did a decent job with her origin. Obviously it didn't match the comics, but it involved the Kree and was a good shortcut to get to the character powered up and in play.

    A Thread for Random Musings

    Thanks to the help of neighbors, roommates, and the marvels of modern veterinary medicine I got to come home from work to a house entirely free of diarrhea for the first time since Thursday.

    "Sir, for the last time, the spider was not radioactive. It was a brown recluse." "But I can feel my 'spider-sense' tingling!" "That would be the nerve damage..." EDIT: Disclaimer, I'm almost positive I stole paraphrased that from some web-comic or other and am not actually that clever, though I'll be hanged if I can remember where it came from.

    As funny as it is, it's photoshopped. The "Shut up Wil" post was part of a longer conversation from 2013.
