  1. Re: Istvatha V'han - why can't she conquer Earth? Chronosburg doesn't begin with an A. It left a little ambiguity if it were something like Austin, Arkansas, America, Australia, Africa, Asia, etc. But since this is just tinkering....
  2. Re: Istvatha V'han - why can't she conquer Earth? Let's just hope Captain Chronos isn't trying to manipulate events so that Istvatha V'han has an easier time* to conquer Earth. Captain Chronos: "The Empress told me I would have one trillion credits and my own land if I made her victory less bloody." PC: "What land?" Captain Chronos: "Well, it's not like there's anyone left on it any way." PC: "What land?!" Captain Chronos: "It begins with an A." *Pun not intended, but I like it!
  3. Re: Istvatha V'han - why can't she conquer Earth? Sounds like Genghis Khan. It's generally not disputed that he was brutal and evil, but if you surrendered up front (or fought valiantly and survived long enough for him to witness) you were brought into the empire. Resistance meant everyone taller than a wagon wheel was killed.
  4. Re: Istvatha V'han - why can't she conquer Earth? Like the Examiner, Istvatha V'han is essentially a plot device (with stats). Her lack of "others" could be a result of something she did when time traveling or dimension crossing in her youth. (Maybe she accidentally attacked dimension in their past and that somehow prevented her from appearing in other dimensions.) If a GM were interested enough, he could create a campaign with the sole purpose of battling Istvatha V'han. Her existence takes place on a parallel Earth, so perhaps the Earth in each dimension is a cornerstone

  6. Re: Istvatha V'han - why can't she conquer Earth? Now that this particular obstacle has been removed, I see an invasion soon.
  7. Re: Istvatha V'han - why can't she conquer Earth? That's a blanket argument that falls flat considering she's conquered ~ 100 millions dimensions already. When you break down your points, it's worse. That's quite a stretch. For all this to even happen, V'han has to have conquered already, so right there it doesn't explain why she cannot conquer Earth. Aside from that, you have requirements where IF supers capable of dimensional hopping and IF they have discriminatory abilities are found and IF supers capable of specific time travel are found and IF enough supers can be found t
  8. Re: Istvatha V'han - why can't she conquer Earth? Does know if the book explains why she couldn't/didn't conquer it before? (Feel free to post it in a spoiler.) I'd presume it does; unfortunately, I doubt I'll be able to order the book for another 3-4 months.

    Re: Heroes They've been doing a lot of promoting for season three of Heroes: Villains. Not only do I see it on TV, but it's advertised at the movie theater as well. While I'm glad that the producers have acknowledged mistakes they've made, I feel this season will make it or break it for me.
  10. Re: Stay on topic. 1: Waah 2: Because you're ignorant. 3: Which leads to the "my kung fu is better than yours" prattle of wannabes. 4: You'll never "correct" them because you're simply in a pissing contest. As for "on topic/thread drifiting best Super Hero Martial Art of people using real-world examples to prove their endowment" let me state that the ancient Spartans used pankration. They stopped entering the Olympic pankration competitions because biting and eye-gouging were banned. In other words, the combat form was weakened for games. Every other modern form falls shor
  11. Re: Stay on topic. Maybe you should try reading comprehension.
  12. Stay on topic. :yawn: Once again, this becomes a "my kung fu is better than your kung fu" thread.
  13. Re: Ten Best Superhero Martial Arts In a Dark Champions campaign I used to be in, our acrobatic clown, Harlequin, had capoeira, which he strangely used only in the training room. Eventually, when we started doing the subplots for the Tournament of the Dragon, he learned the fictional drunken clown fighting style and actually used it effectively in combat. Until he faced Card Shark and "with all the anger he could muster" punched him for 3d6 points of damage. In a Western Hero campaign, I played a little Chinese boy who had drunken style kung fu. The PCs all thought he got dr
  14. Re: Ten Best Superhero Martial Arts Could we depart from the "my kung fu is better than your kung fu" derail and talk about the Ten Best Superhero Martial Arts? I'm sure you can start a thread in NGD if you want to continue this side discussion.
  15. Re: Ten Best Superhero Martial Arts Instead of Wuxia Hero, I think his title should be "Thread Necromancer," or, going with the connotation of "bubba" he should do "Redneck Necromancer."
