Hero System Good Idea/Bad Idea...

Recommended Posts

Re: Hero System Good Idea/Bad Idea...

 

Bad Idea: Gothic Hero

Worse Idea: American Gothic Hero

 

"Summ'ns at da dowah!"

 

(That's "someone's at the door" with a heavy southern accent!)

 

Hey! I liked American Gothic! I was sad it got canceled!

 

And hey' date=' I liked Changeling. The hardcover edition's magic system was a lot better than the stupid cards from the softcover. I liked Mage too.[/quote']

 

I liked Mage a lot, too. My 3 favorite systems: Hero (Very specific powers), Mage (very generalized powers), Amber Diceless (VERY generalized powers)... odd, huh?

 

I have to say I liked Changeling 1st edition.... my name is on the playtesters list!

 

Good Idea: Golden Age Hero

Bad Idea: Retirement Home Hero

 

Should read:

Good Idea: Golden Age Hero

Bad Idea Golden AgeD Hero

 

All kinds of ideas spring up from Retirement Home Hero.

 

Horror (As all things flow from and to Horror): Tragically, our elderly tend to be marginalized, it would make for a great group in a Horror campaign (Of course you saw a ghost Grandpa...)

 

Bubbahotep, anyone? Only Bruce Campbell.....

Supers: An old threat rises up from the past, the younger supers don't know how to handle it (Think Supers version of Space Cowboys), or the young supers are missing/killed you're all that's left, or see Horror but with super powers (Sure the Scarlet Skull's dangerous we'll take care of it gramps...)

 

Oddly enough I joined a game on Hero Central because I thought it would be a fun game concept.

What's a painting?

 

Why would you give a painting a name? It's such a simple thing, that's just silly....:D

A Del Monte Airfield campaign might be interesting if short lived (18-19 months game time). Could be run like DS-9 or Babylon 5.

Do the landing planes have to dodge all the fruit plants?? :eek:

 

Good Idea: The Ultimate Evil

 

Bad Idea: The Ultimate Knievel

 

Actually, a traveling troupe of motorcycle stunt drivers that encounter mysterious, haunted locations & must fight the monsters/men-in-rubber-masks....

Well I was thinking more about the WWII air force base in the Phillipines but if we must, we must...

 

Reaping the Grapes of Wrath

The year is 2025, with global warming and population increases fruit, even canned fruit has become a luxery item in even the ,ost prosperous of nations. You're team works for DelMonte's (One of the last major Fruit Based Corporations) division of internal security under the control of the mysterious VP of Special Projects. You're task is to protect DelMonte's assets worldwide, acting as body guards, investigators, hostage negotiators and if necessary a small assault team. You'll also occasionally be asked to acquire corporate assets (Genetic Material, Copies of Trade Aggreements, Deeds and the like)from the competition. Sort of a cross between Shadowrun and Carmen Miranda...

 

 

Should I be taking Bad Ideas as challenges?

Hey, I'd play a game of Smurfpunk.

 

* Fierce feline predators five times your size

 

* Evil sorcerous mastermind

 

* Magic mushrooms that grant, like, total power-ups, dude

 

* Enough ammo for mutually assured destruction

 

* Hot blue chicks; okay, only one hot blue chick

 

 

It's like using Bunnies & Burrows to play Watership Down...

 

 

Actually, it's starting to sound more like Watchmen, at three inches tall...

Find the scales symbol in the upper right corner of the post. Click on it. Reputize.

 

Of course, you need to make a few more posts and get reputized yourself before it counts for much. But you can certainly register approval.

The palindromedary warns that Lucius is incorrigible - so don't incorrige him!
