  1. Re: Online Spacer's Toolkit More to the point, is this data something Ben or Dan can pull out of the original database as text? If so, that would be even better. Aroooo
  2. Re: Traveller starship combat Lets use two vehicles listed in the Size chart (Fred 5e pg 463), an attack helicopter and a tank. The tank has a DCV mod of -4 based on its size. The helo a DCV mod of -5. (I don't particularly agree with those numbers, but lets just work with what we have). Now, if a person shoots at the tank, the tank's DCV gets modified by the Size mod of -4, down to a max of 0 DCV (remember, DCV can not go below 0). If the helo shoots at the tank, the tank should not have any DCV mod vs. the helo since the helo is bigger than the tank. If the tank were to sh
  3. Re: Traveller starship combat We're still working out the quirks of space combat in general and traveller combat specifically; but one thing I can tell you is that the DCV mod for size generally applies to vehicle vs vehicle only. (Okay, that did not make much sense...) Basically, get the DCV mod for each space ship, and compare the attacker to defender and apply only the difference to the attacker (but only if its a negative). I do agree with you though about the megascale vs increased range mods. On one very small level I understand why they have the option in there, but it would

  5. Re: Online Spacer's Toolkit repped! However, I'm having trouble pulling up all the site's graphics. Don't know if it just my office connection (too many folks surfing you tube?) or the archive site. Will try later tonight. If I (or anyone else) can get that info - of Bob if you have HD files - I'll add that to the starherofandom site. Aroooo
  6. Re: Online Spacer's Toolkit I'm pretty sure you got the name right. Personally, I don't know what happened to it or the online Super Powers Database - I was pretty much away from the boards when that change took place. So, while I'm of little help here, I too would like to know what happened to it. Aroooo
  7. Re: Tear heart out of your chest ability, ala "Temple of Doom" Because of the time required (from watching the movie it was not instant), I might do it as a Major Transform - even though transforms are not supposed to kill people as I recall. Depends on how many combat phases you wanted to give the victim to try and escape I suppose. Aroooo
  8. Re: Disadvantages of a Humvee This was written up in the Hero System Vehicle Sourcebook (pg 38). They [steve] only listed the distinctive feature as a disad. Not that the others listed are not good and worthy mind you... Aroooo

  11. Re: Simulate Claustrophobia/Cabin Fever for a serious moment, I actually have one of those in my current campaign. For her (while I have not implemented this house rule yet) I sort of treat it in reverse. The longer she stays on planet, esp. away from Startown, the more nervous about open spaces she gets. Aroooo
  12. Re: Simulate Claustrophobia/Cabin Fever Agreed. However, there are those players that have to have everything quantified, especially when it comes to having their characters do something that they don't think they would do. Aroooo
  13. I don't normally cross post, but this seems to be a closed conversation over in the main questions section, so I thought I'd make sure the spacers among us saw this first hand just in case. The original conversation is here http://www.herogames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=63992 What I'm trying to do is simulate cabin fever. Here's what I have so far, not including Silbeg's recent comments. I like the percentage of overcrowding idea. I'll have to see how to work that in. Cabin Fever Cabin fever is a condition that produces restlessness and irritability caused from being in a conf
  14. Re: Western Hero You looking for real world gun info, or Hero gun info? If Hero, the Equipment Guide has a plethora of gun stats. You should be able to find what you need in there, or get real close at least. Aroooo
