  1. My grandfather never financed a vehicle. He hated interest and always paid cash. Now for him, that usually meant something at or under $50,000, but he would bring the cash if he had called ahead and they would not take a check. For private sales, cash is legal tender no matter the amount. So going to Craigslist and buying up several businesses in your city (Orlando used here as an example https://orlando.craigslist.org/search/bfs?sort=pricedsc) and then paying a property manager in cash to manage them would be a great way to launder. Pay for repairs and additions in cash, all empl
  2. I guess I'd say it depends on how into the details you want to get about it. Any large cash business is a good way to do it in the real world. Strip clubs, laundry mat's, change machines, vending machines, convenience stores in low income neighborhoods. You could go the Victor Von Doom route and just buy a country. I would personally look to digital currency where the regulations are still not dry on the paper, who cares if you take a bath once in a while on market jitters, laundry usually has a 20+% price tag anyway. Or fill a niche for your fellow criminals and let them launder for you by bu
  3. I rewrote my response here (before hitting submit even, maybe the New Year is making me more mellow) as I was initially a bit harsh as I perceived your post as rather unproductive. I have answered what I see as your concerns below, please clarify if there was a message I am not getting here. I have changed nothing about the limitations, all I did was clarify when things happen regarding held phases. 6e, 19 leaves this almost entirely up to the GM, although it does suggest several different options (DEX off, Fast Draw, held actions, INT, PRE). It also notes that if you are simply
  4. Ah, thank you and good catch, I meant to say "Lightning Reflexes counts as DEX". Fast Draw will either act as a complimentary roll to DEX or DEX can act as a complementary roll to Fast Draw at the users option. So characters with lower DEX scores can use Fast Draw in place of DEX and make a DEX roll as a complimentary roll. That will also give casters a reason to have Fast Draw if they are in that situation frequently. - Ernie

  6. In the world of VTT this becomes less of an issue. If you need a roll that you don't want the players to know if they succeeded at, just roll it or worst cases, mute the mic for a second and roll it. The general reason I would do this would be critical failures, which are pretty rare honestly, or if I don't want the players to know how much they need to succeed by. Most of the time the rolls in combat are all open, even outside of combat many rolls are obvious from the results although some social situations may not be as cut and dry. When I did this in person I would do the same t
  7. I got all that. What I was looking for was the mechanic that people use to simulate it in game. Simon chimed in (rules forum) that you would need a held phase (or covering) and a Dex off. I am leaning toward the following: Fast Draw counts as DEX for these purposes. Spells eligible for interruption include those with Concentration, Gestures and Incantations. Extra Time limitations also modify these rules as below. Note that these rules do not modify the DCV penalties from Concentration or alter the fast that those modifications last until the characters DEX on their ne

    Very familiar with that phenomenon, the person I play WarMachine with had 2 cats and they loved playing godzilla.

    The slider sounds like it worked fine if you can come up with something like that. In a VTT environment it should be pretty easy to display END cost for a power as it is used, allowing whoever is tracking it to see clearly what the cost is. With my non-Hero familiar players I used little cups (erm... clear jello shot cups) and plastic beads for END and STUN. They just put however many END they had in the cup and took them out as they used them. Very visually easy for them to see how close to exhausted they were. And STUN was the same, pretty much. When they recovered, they just put some END an
  11. And NPC's can and do try to interrupt PC's this way as well? I am specifically talking about zero phase actions here, not attacks. - E
  12. How do you handle interrupting zero phase actions in your game? Activating a non-attack power is a zero phase action. If said power has Gestures or Incantations (both of which stop the power from activating if the user takes damage or is affected by an attack or MCV roll), there would seem to be a window of time to interrupt them. Do you limit this to someone who acts on the same Dex or who has a held phase and can act on that dex? Or is there some other method that you use? I also posted this in the rules forum, but I am curious how others handle it today.

  14. Yeah, but it requires GM permission and it gets weird to figure the points on since it's a fractional point to start with (some portion of Diminished Eating once a week, so 1 CP), but then you start adding Amicable (+1) which is required for object summons, UOO, x100 (+2) as 1L is about the minimum a person can drink a day and survive... it ends up being about the same cost but makes less sense when written down. The reason for teleport would be if you have dowsed the water, but it is 15-30 meters under the ground. Same for the transform, but for transform it's just part of the
