  1. Hello there ! I have quite a complex question around the use of Mental Powers and the Desolidification power combo. For the example I'm using a 5th edition book, but I guess there wasn't major changes in the rules around my point in the 6th. In Vibora Bay book, Dr Ka is defined with an Astral Form, which is Desolid. And has a bunch of mental powers to use, but without Affect Desolid adder. The Ultimate Mentalist book doesn't help in explaining that, just giving some tips on what happen when the target or the mentalist becomes Desolid AFTER a Mental Power has been used. I understand that EGO represents the "mind" of a person, and could be affected by any mental powers, even from a desolid form. Does that means the Dr Ka's character has clearly been badly built (p47 Vibora Bay), since he only got a naked advantage of Affect Desolid applied to his STR? His mental powers are clearly made to affect people while his Desolidification is Persistent, 0 END cost. I had the "feeling" that he might be able to attack physical beings with his mental powers while Desolid, but maybe I misunderstood how he could use such powers. Having such a multipower only able to affect other astral forms seems a bit useless. I need the info, since my players are ongoing the excellent Imaginary Friends scenario. Long Live to Champions and HERO System

  3. Fitness/Sport coach as a freelancer is a good one aswell. And it explains why our character looks so fit. Because, be honest, most people aren't so sharp physically than a meta.

    Hi LL ! Yes, with COVID, I had at least time to come back to Champions rpg somehow ^^. And let my imagination do the rest. Thanks for the pointers. I am considering opening a tabletop for a campaign where my PCs starts as normal guys, and get empowered. Or maybe they will become agents of VIPER, ARGENT, or who know where they will decide to go ! Maybe I should open another thread focused on VIPER, and see how the community can contribute 😛
  5. I was introduced to Champions by a GM using a mix of 4th and 5th editions. I bought the 6th edition myself, with alot of 5th books for settings. And now after alot of games and considerations, I consider that 6th edition is not worth it. I prefer largely 5th that I consider more consistent, coherent and balanced.

    I use to think having two teams called "hammer" And "Scythe" would be better, as related to Russian flag Soviet Opale
  21. Personally I envision my native France as a dark and gloomy place for superheroes. It's all cultural I guess, as most of francophone people doesn't have the cultural biais to believe in a superheroic savior. They would more likely enjoy watching such a person fail or die... Anyway, I think the Micros comics book, in the eighties , is a good sample of what could be done with french superheroes. I.E, a government that control supers on his lands by using blackmail, threat, corruption, etc... that would be the Champions of France book I could write. Not the kind of stuff most people would enjoy to play with, imho. Opale, now expatriated
  22. i always loved to imagine picture in Canada. But I was never able to get the book... so, how can we help ?
