  1. Re: Focus others can activate Well, no one is taking the device away and using it themselves. They are activating a power FOR the hero.
  2. Re: Multimedia Examples of Stats in Action, Vol. I: COM/Striking Appearance I ain't gonna start nothing, but I will have the popcorn ready to go...
  3. Re: looking for non-Causasian pulp roles Atlantis had a Black/Native American medic and Puerto Rican mechanic on the crew.
  4. Re: Attractiveness - Comeliness Vs. Striking Appearance I mostly stayed out of the "Great COM Debate", but I've made my thoughts pretty well known now and then: http://www.herogames.com/forums/showthread.php/84780
  5. Re: Earth Girl Late to the party, so most of my initial concers have already been mentioned... I'd probably redo Span the Globe and make it a slot in her MP instead. Should save a good chunk of points. Of course, tactically I favor the combination of Tunneling and Indirect attacks, but she's lacking options that would allow this. Still, with the polints saved it might be a good idea to get a Tremor Sense type power for the future. Speaking of, maybe change the Limitation on her TK to "Must Involve Earth" ? That way she can lift people up with a hand of stone or similar. I think that's a -1/4, but IDHMBIFOM Her CV's seem rather low to me, but couldn't say for sure without knowing the setting... Also, as an earth elemental, doesn't seem like she should really need to breath... and possibly not eat or sleep...
  6. Re: Ben 10: Omniverse New website has been live for a while now with a couple of very basic alien profiles,and has confirmed that "Gravattack is actually a small planet." Blox will be the first new alien posted, hopefully this weekend. I'm sure he'll be a pain in the butt to keep a running power stunt tally on
  7. Re: Foods for those that just don't care anymore The Mozerella Sticks are pretty good too (previously known as Micahel's Caines)... Not sure how to interpret the "creep factor" commnet, but given my proclivities I'm sure it surprises no one that I go to the Kilt semi-regularly
  8. Re: "Neat" Pictures And just like that, "Bright Eyes" is stuck in my head...
  9. Re: A Thread for Random Videos [buzz]This isn't flying, this is falling with style![/buzz]
  10. Re: Attractiveness - Comeliness Vs. Striking Appearance The Great COM Debate was one of the largest flame wars that resulted from the conversion of 5th to 6th. Real sore spot amongst some posters... people left or were were banned, frendships were disolved, brother fought against brother type stuff...
  11. Re: Attractiveness - Comeliness Vs. Striking Appearance :: gets the popcorn ::
  12. Re: So: What Superpowers would your Parents get if they had a "Radiation Accident" My father died before I was born and I really don't know that much about him. He was a Mexican federal agent and a skilled sketch artist (which IO know only because I have some of his old sketches). So maybe some sort of super spy with Illusion Powers... which now that I think about it, might just explain my fondess for Fantomex... I suspect my mother already is a super hero of some sort... no one without time control powers could possibly do as much as she does for others. The woman is a blasted saint and it is my eternal shame that I will never live up to her example of kindness and generosity. That said, she's also loud as hell so Sonic powers might just be in order
  13. Re: Body Sharing Multiform, on a timer, Ego roll to switch off timer Psych Complication: Character thinks he automatically changes form every 24 hours
  14. Re: "Neat" Pictures Pizzazz from the cartoon Jem
  15. Re: "Neat" Pictures Just a random beefcake pic or am I missing something particularly "Neat" about it?
  16. Re: "Neat" Pictures Obligatory: MANDATORY!
  17. Re: A Thread for Random Videos You know, the singing for the frist 1:00 wasn't doing it for me, but it got real interesting right after that
  18. Re: "Neat" Pictures Wll, Spider-man DOES know kung fu now (leard from Shang-Chi) In Shaolin, they actually call wall running "Gecko Travel On Wall"... though I've heard it refered to as the Gecko Run or the Gecko Step before as well.
  19. Re: Two handed punch. I was taught an application of the "Axe Handle" back in the day when I was working with my old jiujitsu/military H2H instructor. It was shown as a defense against a front strangle. Bring the arms up between the opponents arms to break the stangle, bring them back down again quickly across the bridge of thier nose (or other vulnerable target). Follow up as necessary. Sakuraba also used it in his fights over in Pride. It was more often a double chop (frequently refered to as the Mongolian Chop due to the pro wrestling connotations...) or a double hammer fist. It was often thrown as a setup for other strikes, but occassionaly he'd do some damage with it. He does a standing chop at 1:56 and a few around the 2:21 mark against grounded opponents. Other fighters tend to just use a single hammer fist in ground and pound situations. Since hammer fists thrown from the ground tend to be strictly arm punches, the double hammer fist would probably hit harder. But most guys I know never train it, so they dont think about it. Those that do use it may not end up in a balanced position to throw it or might be using their other hand for control or defense... Sakuraba was known for being predictably unpredicatable and trying unconventional tactics (many of which worked quite well). There are dozens of Asain fighting arts that have double handed strikes in thier sylabus: some styles of karate and kung fu use linear double punchs or double palm strikes, while Muay Boran teaches a double upercut. I'm at a loss to think of one that actually uses the HULK SMASH!!! axe handle or double hammerfist, but it might be out there...
