    The "Nice Happy" Thread

    A change in my meds and exercise schedule, and I'm down almost 10 lbs so far.

  2. I did feel pity for Charlie Evans, because despite being physically adult he was obviously still a child. No training or experience in social context or emotional self-control, never having had to take responsibility for his actions, turned loose in an environment where he could do whatever he wanted without consequences. The result was inevitable. But all he really wanted was what he never had, acceptance and companionship from others like himself. And when that was finally in his grasp it was taken away.

  7. Here are my updated versions of Solitaire (Elaine King) from Champions 4th Edition and Solitaire (Shannon Havelock) from Champions: The New Millennium for 6th Edition. They are what I considered "experienced" versions of the character, as the original stats were "rookie" versions, with an updated design for each. Included are the Hero Designer files, Adobe PDF, and Microsoft Word versions in case you want to make some changes for your campaign. Solitaire (Elaine King and Shannon Havelock) Enjoy! 😉 Solitaire (Elaine King) - 425 points

    Favorite Superhero?

    I‘ve always liked the more obscure ones. When I was a little kid and everyone else liked Batman (because of the TV show we all watched on reruns) I was fascinated by Green Hornet. I got into the old radio shows and everything. Comics wise as a teen when it was either X-Men or Teen Titans my favorites were Captain Comet and the Martian Manhunter.

    Favorite Superhero?

    Doctor Strange. That he earned his powers through study. The phantasmagorical alien dimensions. The really cool house. I imprinted on him early, thanks to a few raggy old comics from the first run (early first run) I found in a box in my attic. Between those and Yellow Submarine, it became nigh inevitable that I would write The Ultimate Supermage. After that, probably Captain America and the Flash (hm, another hero I encountered early... with the issue holding Doctor Alchemy's first appearance. I am seeing a pattern.) For all I've enjoyed Kurt Busiek's Astro City, I can

  11. I'd wonder why you're using Transform here. You want to turn water into ice for a reason, right? To make a barrier, or to walk across something, hit somebody with sharp ice objects, whatever. So build that power, with "Turning water into ice and" as the SFX. Also everything dsatow said.

    Favorite Superhero?

    If I had to pick one, Captain America. He has best ideals and sensibilities of all the heroes. He also has the coolest superpower of them all - leadership and inspiration.

  14. Think of my stuff as a separate comic book. You can collect the characters in that comic book if you wish. Thoes characters may crossover. The writer may go 'off model' with a character when written by someone else. The character, once published on the wiki, is the property of the wiki, not myself. Wicked did have a disclaimer at the beginning of the wiki, stating that he might not be everyone's cup of tea.

  16. Thank you. What I been contributing is basically stuff which I contribute to the bulitan board already. Many of it seems to be lost in time (especially Jet Justice). The best I can do for my efforts in the past are to link it to the wiki post. And I don't think I'm monopoly this wiki. Eventually I'll run out of stuff I can recover. Which is ok. Then everyone else can catch up.

  20. Thanks for the kind words. As for the Widget that Elaine King has, I don't remember seeing stats for it in the original Champions 4th Edition, so I would probably have to generate a write-up as a separate entity or look in the forum to see if another contributor has already completed one.

  25. Well, I do think we need to realize a difference "you made a terrible misjudgment that shows you are not cut out for police work" and legit criminal police misconduct. Both should be kicked out, but only one charged with crimes. Also whatever you think of cops, proceed with caution in dealing with them. Sudden movements, antagonizing and similar probably should be kept to a minimum just in case. Escalating the situation is a bad idea.

  26. Since the article didn't specify whether the man was an enemy of God, we will never know on that point. All we know for sure is that there are many sea critters we should not be messing with.

  28. He glanced up at the listening shelves. POSSIBLY IT WOULD BE SIMPLER IF I ASKED FOR A LIST OF THE HARMLESS CREATURES OF THE AFORESAID CONTINENT? They waited. IT WOULD APPEAR THAT– “No, wait, master. Here it comes.” Albert pointed to something white zigzagging lazily through the air. Finally Death reached up and caught the single sheet of paper. He read it carefully and then turned it over briefly just in case anything was written on the other side. “May I?” said Albert. Death handed him the paper. “‘Some of the sheep,’“ Albert read aloud. “Oh, well. Maybe a week at the seaside’d

    Updated version of Flare

    The output file was a Microsoft Word document that I created and then converted to an Adobe PDF. When I previously printed off the Adobe PDF output from Hero Designer, the character sheets were difficult to read for the players, so I went with a more simplified format. Yes, since German is a freebie because it's her native language, Hero points should have been spent for English, an error on my part. The Hero Designer File was included in case others wanted to modify it further.

  34. Yes. When I started playing D&D the DM only had the 1st edition DM guide and the OD&D brown books. So I was playing "0.5 edition," I guess.

    My mother had difficulty breathing with the mask so people in one of the shops got her one of the face shields that they were which was nice. She can breathe properly and be socially distant.

  38. Cowboy Bebop is really good. For me, anime has always been hard to get into, but for some reason Cowboy Bebop was just amazing. I would argue that it's the most non-anime anime ever. I have tried to watch several recommended anime series but couldn't get past the first 10 minutes. Ever. But then I heard that Firefly was basically stolen from Cowboy Bebop, so I gave it a try. (I would say that Firefly did not steal from Cowboy Bebop, in my final analysis. But I am grateful that the accusations led me to this great series.) I can't put my finger on what makes it special.

    Guys, I have many goofy qualities my friends make fun of and I don't care because it's comedy. If PC and Cancel Culture are now coming to The Jokes Thread, I'll be leaving it. I doubt that bothers anyone in the least, but I needed to say that. Thanks, love y'all.

  40. I drew a lot of Supers back in the 80’s and 90’s but rarely used skin tight costumes. Pockets pouches or armor were common. My own characters were mostly some variation of armor. But I would draw anything for $20 bucks back then.

  41. Daughter (who has her father's case of potty mouth, augmented by the generational slide toward vulgarity): I swear there's new babies all over this f---ing neighborhood. There's one across the street, there's one a block down north of us, there's one back over that way (southwest), there's another over there somewhere (waves generally south and east), I hear 'em all. Makes it hard to listen for cats when you call them in. Me: That actually is an appropriate use of that word.

  42. Personally, I think the libido complaint is overrated. Most of the time we saw Kirk coming on to a woman, it was a tactic to gain an advantage over some opponent. And he scrupulously avoided any involvement with the women under his command -- something we can't say for Picard.

  43. City on the Edge of Forever. Any number of Sci-Fi greats wrote whole novels about time travel, but Harlan Ellison set the standards for the dangers of changing history for an entire generation. I personally think every time travel story after that point from Quantum Leap to the Terminator owe a little something to it.

  44. A Game of Birds and Wolves: ((Two different teaser lines follow that, depending on whether you ahve the UK edition or the US edition)) by Simon Parkin tl;dr version of this review: Wargamers won the Battle of the Atlantic! Women wargamers!! When the Nazis unleashed the U-boats in WW2, there were very few U-boats, but they were very well led, on both the single-ship level and the grand command level. Doenitz was convinced, almost correctly, that correct submarine tactics would sink cargo vessels faster than the Allies could build new ones, and strangle Britain economically in
