  1. You cant dive for cover away from ego attacks? That could work very well.
  2. This is brilliant and I am ashamed I did not think of it. I am indeed mixing terms. I wanted the power to both be difficult to dodge and difficult to dive for cover from. Its a shadowy attack that looks like its in several places at once, making it difficult to detect the real one. The character is a shadow mage of sorts. And I wanted to create a shadow blast that can both be used at range and to smack attackers in meele. But that is for the multipower. I was wondering more about how to make the difficult to dodge/ dive for cover to work. In fact how do you put penalties on other characters dex rolls in general without having to go into transform? Which is more expensive than just having a power that kills the target.
  3. Finally I found it. Its called Plundered Twinscale Handblade. Thanks for the comments. Feel free to lock the thread.
  4. I was thinking of making a ranged attack power that is difficult to dodge. Giving the opposing character -1 or more to his or hers dodge roll. What is the best way of going about that? I can not just wing it because this is a power for a player.
  5. I did but could not find the item in question sine dont have the name.
  6. A player of mine wanted to use a weapon looking like this. I know its a claw but I was wondering what does it do? What kind of magical powers does it have? What is it called? Is it possible to find some concept art somewhere?
  7. Everything in WWE exist only to build HHH and Shane. Thats just how it is. If you going to like WWE you need to be able to enjoy the small things that fall through the cracks. Many people on the internet hopes that Vince will retire soon, I say we will miss him when he is gone.
  8. I say its more than a first step this time. Blaming all for the sin of one is a sign of authoritarian mindset already.
  9. Hmm. Thats disconcerting. https://www.chappatte.com/en/the-end-of-political-cartoons-at-the-new-york-times/?fbclid=IwAR08EVRv3WmkDIyUqZrnrIQoysMFf2nzsf53EVw6vHaTVKEqUB7dvTQkccg Removing all political cartoons because of one cartoonists caricature of Nethanyanu as a seeing eye dog leading the blind Trump is a bit harsh. How about judging each piece of political art on its own merits? No? Okay then.. I recommenced all Hero gamers to boycott New York Times all everything they are associated with. One of the victims of this artist purge says his opinion. https://www.chappatte.com/en/the-end-of-political-cartoons-at-the-new-york-times/?fbclid=IwAR08EVRv3WmkDIyUqZrnrIQoysMFf2nzsf53EVw6vHaTVKEqUB7dvTQkccg Hopefully he will get onto Patreon or something.
  10. Edit: The rooster is full as for now. Thanks to all who showed interest. There will be new openings later this year. But for now its full. Sorry. Is E-fed like people create or have someone create a character for them in WWE2k game and have the AI fight the AI. While they do promos and bet on the outcome? Because if that sounds cool to you then I got a suggestion for you! There is a Twitch streamer named Dan who are a pro voice actor and a huge wrestling fan. He runs an federation where everyone is a character made by people from all over the world. Its pretty fun. I dont have the game and no idea on how to build a character if I did since I dont know anything about the game but they made a guy for me. Here he is winning the battlebox. Their version of the money in the bank. You got to hang around for a while before you get to have your character, four times I think. But that is also a great amount of time to see if you like it or not. The show is on twice a week and yes I am calling it a show its really that good thanks to the great commentator. Its on 3 PM EST Thursday and 1 PM EST Sunday. So if this sounds interesting to you or you just want a chance to beat me up you can get that through game avatars on the internet. What a time to be alive. Off course there are tag team and women division as well.
  11. I take that with a pinch of salt. Its pretty obvious that GRRM are passively working against the show at this point. He write other books than the ones that would help the show. He does extremely minimal promotion for the show on his own twitter and keep in mind this is the greatest most expensive TV show of all time. You just dont take time off that to promote your wild card series unless something have gone seriously wrong behind the scenes. That said I think we can leave this particular train of discussion dead since we will get to know the truth sooner or later as contracts run out and silence agreements are voided. Unless both GRRM dies and there is a total Disneyiesce media black out lol.
  12. Well classical fantasy is all about the heroes versus a force and modernist is the heroes versus society. While postmodernism is more subversive deconstruction of modernism stories and tropes. After Game of Thrones show decided to focus on the war for the throne after the undead threat was over I think of it as a modernist narrative but since they had the last episode it became more of a post modernist piece. If it had used the battle for the throne as a distraction from the war against the white walkers but still had a deconstructionist narrative like with the last episode I guess I could call it anti classic? Or atleast a modernist twist on a classical tale.
  13. Squabbles behind the scenes of a huge creative production is par for the course, not a "huge conspiracy" as you imply that I suggest. X-Men the last stand was one of the most vile series of moving pictures I have ever seen. Its downright evil desire to reach what the director saw as an ideal narrative outcome was so foul! So absolutely disgraceful, so utterly contemptible that it sits easy as the worst movie I ever watched in the cinema. The director wanted this "epic", "tragic" and "romantic" scene where Wolverine killing Jean Grey and set up the whole movie to support this end. Off course such an vulgar and immoral story turn can never be properly implemented into the X-men story line. It just goes against the grain of the whole deal. Almost every character is character assassinated, Wolverine kills Jean without trying to finding another solution. Storm of all people are relegated to "wise black person who tells it like it is" role and are used to give blanket approval to the literal gutting of Jean Grey. In fact she demands it! Professor X are turned into a misogynistic scumbag which upon seeing that Jean Grey as a little girl have the power of levitation and is very powerful, Decides to kill her mind and replace the real Jean Grey with a psychic automaton put inside her head! I repeat: For all intents and purposes he KILLS Jean Grey and creates a flesh puppet in her stead. Jean Grey is also character assassinated as her sweetness, kindness and empathy for others are shown to be just a constructed personality created by Professor X and the real Jean Grey is an evil murderer. Why is never explained. And her character assassination is lessened somewhat by the sheer ineptness of this most loathsome script. As we never see the real Jean do anything evil as a child nor has she done anything evil. She lifts some cars and are a bit smug about her power, but she have not actually done anything. So no wonder she is pissed off once her brain patterns regrow and she becomes herself again. Again she is still shown as evil but its not as bad as it is with the professor. In conclusion the director had a hard on for seeing a beautiful woman gutted on screen and tried to make it look as good as possible and tried to bend and twist the story around so it was not actually an evil act. Jean were never the "real" Jean. Wolverine felt really bad about it, Storm were okay with it, they had a come out of the closet because you are actually an beautiful angel subplot while ignoring that ugly mutants also exists and finally they made Rouge give up on her powers and opportunity to help people so that she could enjoy the pleasures of the flesh. And pleasures of the flesh is a bit of a theme here because the director have no empathy or understanding of the fact that women and other people actually have a self or a soul if you want to call it that. To him Jean was just the pleasure she had given others with her company. The fact that it was a psychic construct made by Professor X made no difference because no soul or individual have any value except what the director finds pleasure in. So if its a real person or a stepford wife is same deal for him. He does not see the difference. And that is one of the cornerstones of being evil. You dont see other people as valuable individuals. Just as flesh puppets. I see it more as a cynical use of fantasy tropes to trick people into watching a post modernist deconstruction of the genre.
  14. All I read from that was "I need more weed gimme a research grant"
