  4. Stan Lee's Former Manager Arrested On Suspicion Of Abusing Him
  5. Oooh. I'm going to sidetrack now. Please forgive me. In my (mostly theoretical) Golden Age setting, the Australian military had "X Special Unit". It was based on the Real World(tm) Z Special Unit. One of it's particular duties was to counter Japanese Ninja units. In doing so, it developed the set of techniques that would, after the war, become known as "Australian Ninjitsu". I'll leave it to eager Seekers to discover the details of that discipline. After the war, some of the veterans of that unit settled down in an area of south western Queensland called Coothalla. (In reality, Coothalla is a railway siding and a rudimentary platform. My grandfather was in charge of the railway gang that built it. During WW2, his railway job was a "reserved occupation". He tried to enlist in 1939, but was refused.) The name Coothalla supposedly means "Eaglehawk" in a local indigenous language. I've got nothing. There's nothing Champions relevant here.
  6. Yesterday

  8. We do! Questions like: --With all the advances in technology, why does belly button lint still happen? --Who likes the juice you squeeze out of cans of tuna as much as cats? --Does anyone else think that Oreo cookies are actually kinda cardboard-y? --Who writes this stuff?

  10. I use the equipment tab for Resource Pools, and the Perks tab to track the cost of them. Works very well, but I have to manage the point costs in the pools myself. I use the notes of each ability to help me do this...like "Real Cost: 4". I do wish there were a built in option to track it automatically, but it's not that big of a deal. You can see this in action on my Here There Be Monster and Metacyber characters, campaigns in which I use Resource Pools. Attached is a character from the currennt HtbM campaign, Drew. He has a Psychic Pool (campaign specific), an Equipment Pool, and Contacts Pool. You'll want the HtbM campaign rules in your CampaignRules subfolder to fully see the character in Hero Designer...you may have to re-apply it to the character (Current Character -> Load Campaign Rules)...or just look at the raw hdc file in a text editor if you don't want to fuss around with Campaign Rules for some reason.

  11. That really depends on which Hulk we're talking about. Hulk that can talk would have a higher COM then the engine of destruction in the movies or the Ultimate Avengers.
  12. I'm curious as to how an insurance company could "require" a super to do anything.

  17. I'm curious about some power or power combinations that you as a player or GM came across that you thought awful cheesy? In 5th edition, I had a player in my group who used the power AID where half the points ended up in PD and the rest of the points back into AID creating a perpetual motion machine like power. As far as I know it wasn't illegal but kind of cheesy.
