  1. The latest I heard is that it's very likely he's going on a ventilator, which also means they need to put him in a medically-induced coma.
  2. Maybe it's just me, but one of the greatest challenges I've found in using non-human beings in an RPG setting is in roleplaying them, either as a player or GM. How exactly do you get into the mindset of a grizzled 423-year old Dwarf, a suave vampire, or a blob of jelly inhabiting a tiny tank? I've known very few players who could set aside their humanness and really get into a non-human mindset. Most do caricatures of such beings, like the previously-mentioned Scottish Dwarf from earlier in this thread. Is it truly possible to portray a non-human without making it seem like a human in very heavy makeup? If not, why have them?
  3. From the website I posted above, there are a few states that are projected to hit their peaks soon: Louisiana 6 Days Michigan 6 Days New Jersey 5 Days New York 6 Days Vermont 6 Days Washington 8 Days The rest of the states are running about two to four weeks out.
  4. I added a website link to my initial post that projects cases and healthcare needs. https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections It looks like California will peak in a little over three weeks.
  5. I've been trying to think of big name supervillains in the CU that might try launching a plague, but it doesn't seem to fit the motif of the most likely ones. Doctor Destroyer would probably find it to be too slow a process and maybe even beneath his dignity to initiate a plague, even if he could win control of the world by providing a cure. He seems to prefer doing flashier things like making monsters and orbital death rays. Teleios is another one more into making monsters than germs. Mechanon I could see doing it, maybe thinking he is using life to destroy life. A slow plague that can't be stopped would probably be really appealing to him.
  6. How would a pandemic like COVID-19 play out in a superhuman world? In the Champions Universe, there are many supervillains with the skills to whip up something like it, most likely pretty easily. Could you imagine VIPER starting a pandemic? How does a superhero help in a pandemic?
  7. I’m under one here in California. My refrigerator chose this week to die, and then the order went out to close down the state one day before a new one could be delivered from Best Buy. I have to go out every couple of days for ice now to keep milk and eggs in the house. I’ve been telecommuting all week for my job, and it’s actually been pretty productive.
  8. Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate is a less toxic variant that is also being made available. There's a company called Teva Pharmaceutical that is donating 10 million tabs of it as a potential treatment of COVID-19.
  9. Thank you for the updates. I’m working from home right now, and my daughter is out of school through early April. I think we should plan on social distancing being a thing for at least another 2-4 weeks.
  10. I’m hearing some chatter that drive-in movie theaters will experience a resurgence of business as the safest venue to see a movie given the risks of infection in regular theaters.
  11. Ohio’s governor is talking about ending the school year now, since he thinks this will peak in April or May. it could end up being a short school year in many states.
  12. Mexico is considering closing their borders due to the Coronavirus. I find that ironic. I wonder if CNN will scream racism if it happens.
  13. Upgraded? That's an interesting spellcheck change. Either that, or you've got incredible students.
  14. Some possible ways to keep safe.
