  1. Today (January 17th) is the birthday of the man who brought us Darth Vader's voice.
  2. The inability to have children was actually written up in Post-Apocalypse Hero as a 5-point Physical Limitation. I think it was written up as PL: Sterile or PL: Infertile or something like that.
  3. Steve Long officially wrote up this version of Life Support as costing 5 points. I think it was presented in Ultimate Metamorph, but I don’t have my books handy at the moment. Throw on an advantage like AOE, and you’ve got a spell to cover a building or region of a town. You could also add on a Life Support versus diseases for even more protection.
  4. Actually, with time travel involved, there could be alternate versions of the same team showing up, or maybe one team from some messed up future, determined to put things right. Can a person twin themselves in the same timeline? It sounds like what happened was some kind of mental time travel instead. Maybe agents of Istvatha V'Han show up, drawn in by all this time travel going on? Yes, the heroes saved the planet from an invasion from space, but they summoned a different kind of invasion in the process. Why not have an alternate version of Paradox show up,

    6E1 POD

    Volume I in softcover is currently available on Amazon, but I don’t know how many copies they have. Volume II is also available, but it is running out.
  6. Merry Christmas to all of Herodom!
  7. It's possible that one or more PCs could have a backstory that would make them strongly sympathetic to this child. Since she isn't possessed, it sounds like the PCs could work together to reform the kid. That would be the opposite of murder hoboing. Since two of the deaths are not justifiable at all, but the criminal is a child, you could get creative. Imagine she goes up before a judge, but the judge is anti-Vaticine or hates priests for some reason. He also doesn't feel vagrants are human beings or decides that being a vagrant means you must be guilty of something somewhere.
  8. He was 97 at his death and lived a VERY full life. RIP
  9. He lived a full life and left behind an impressive amount of film work. Goodbye, Mr. Bond. RIP
  10. Let me add my appreciation for TFOS, Scott. Using Ranma 1/2 as an example, there actually were some minor differences in ability between the two forms that took place in the manga. The female form seemed to be slightly weaker (-1 or 2 points of STR) but faster (+1 or 2 points of DEX or Lightning Reflexes). And in one of the early fights with Mousse, Ranma was at a disadvantage in female form because of having a shorter reach (-1 OCV?) but later got more used to the reach change in later stories and didn’t seem to suffer from it anymore. The female form also seemed to be somewhat mo
  11. I’ve been thinking about “soft caps” in another way, that caps could be set like skill maxima, requiring double cost for each step beyond. So like a skills maxima could be set at 13- and then it takes two skills levels for each +1 past that, CV could be set at a number (7, for example) and then to reach 8 would require two levels instead of just one. A character that specializes in something would simply have more levels in their area of speciality that can be thrown into increasing CV or damage.
  12. Yes, you do need to limit CSLs to keep within campaign boundaries, otherwise you end up in an arms race. I don't have my books in front of me, but in 6th Edition I believe CSLs will only affect ranged DCV when they are 8-point or better in cost. It is my understanding that martial arts DCV bonuses other than for Dodge don't increase DCV either. Archers should be able to pincushion your PCs. Here are two suggestions for keeping things under control: 1) Have them buy OCV/DCV that is for either HTH Only or Ranged Only. This is a -1 Limitation, so they get +2 OCV or +2 DCV for fiv
  13. I just bought it today, mainly for the Haymaker articles.
  14. One other thing to consider is that her seat must be filled quickly. There are cases that will probably go to the Supreme Court concerning the upcoming presidential election. You can’t have a 4-4 split in those cases.
  15. If you’re talking about the “McConnell Rule” or the “”Biden Rule” before it, they only apply when the Senate and Presidency are controlled by different parties. That doesn’t apply here. Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and John Paul Stevens were each confirmed in less than forty days, so there’s also precedent for quick confirmations.
