Hero System Good Idea/Bad Idea...

Recommended Posts

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

 

That's a magical construct created to destroy you!

 

So why didn't Papa Smurf figure out that the best way to neutralize Gargamel's (did I get the name right?) cunning plan to ruin their little blue utopia, was to clone Smurfette so that every smurf could have one?

 

Or two?

The palindromedary reasons that if a magical construct can be created once, what's to keep it from being created multiple times?

According to Wikipedia (I love that Smurfette has her own entry), it took several days (in private with Papa Smurf) to transform Smurfette from her crude form into the Smurfette that we know. And a lot longer for her to learn basic empathy. This makes it impractical to create one hundred or two hundred, but not unlikely to say make a half-dozen or so for the Smurf elite.

 

Although, Papa Smurf apparently use the same formula to produce a human hag to plague Gargamel, so it seems to be a very flexible spell to say the least.

or.... unpredictable.... perhaps Papa was trying to recreate Smurfette & got the hag, instead... then said, "Yeah, that's what I was aiming for.... to annoy Gargamel!":eek:

 

This one's probably been done:

Bad Idea: Inspector Gadget Hero . . . . Go, Go, Gadget VPP!!!

good idea college footballl reruns

bad idea college football games interspersed with former players reminising

 

Bit of a stretch but small town watering hole, former HS football players and cheerleaders, one's a deputy, bartender, bum etc sitting around reminising - little Springsteen in the background. It's puts me in mind for...

 

Murder Mystery - (hmmm woulda thought horror: although group of people, some friends, in an isolated bar does have Infiltraitor Horror or Zombie Apocolypse written all over it.)

 

Anyway Murder Mystery Mini Campaign: Call it Glory Days or Bound for Glory - run it in 5 to 15 sessions. Could work.

Should I break this out into its own thread now?
