  1. I played a non- gender specific Hero once, he/she was based upon an anime/ manga character called Joker who was a shape changer who could shift between male and female and impersonate you after touching you, he/she had no specific gender orientation
  2. I've been thinking recently about LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & intersex) characters and I know there are some in the champions universe and hope this thread can identify them the ones I know are Meteor (predators) maybe not in the mainstream universe anymore Flare (bisexual?) I apologise if this thread has been done before, but with search disabled I couldn't find out
  3. I agree about the Valdorian age sourcebook it was the first thing I thought of when I read your initial post
  4. I feel the best selling point for Fantasy Hero is it's free form character generation system, want to play a magic user who's skilled with a bow, you can, a warrior with some magic, you can don't like hit points, don't worry we don't have them etc
  5. clairsentience,precognition only, only to detect events which could lead to a persons death in the next 24 hours
  6. Players El Gato Dorado-the golden cat, a catgirl Aerialist Doctor Rockso a Lucky Heavymetal Clown Gimmick Angeblo-Angel demon hybrid a tecnico/Rudo We started with the PCs fighting a last Lucha standing match against El Puritano- the Puritan who opposes all things antisocial and hunts Dr Rockso Hell O'Kitty a demonic catgirl who is El Gato Dorado's long term rival El Monstruo- the monster a huge bruiser of low intelligence The villians were eliminated early then the match went down to the wire until finally angeblo threw Rockso out of the ring knocking him unconscious in the process, the arena owner was so impressed with their style that he offered to form them into a team, they have until next session to come up with a name, while they were out dining on their share of the prize, they were called for assistance by the police to help them fight scientific zombies who were breaking into the National Museum, after defeating them they were asked to judge a Lucha look alike contest which broke into a grand melee when it was attacked by thugs of the king of crime, later they were called to an Ice Factory ( Rockso was disappointed to find out it was water ice) to rescue a female aquantince and encountered Dr Pershing (evil Rudo and failed doctor) El Monstruo and Hell O'Kitty, after defeating them we called today's session to a halt and will continue next fortnight tune in then for the continuation of Contra Todo Mal (against all evil)
  7. yes reality (actually Therakiel's Magic) would prevent them from going there
  8. the concept is that Vibora Bay is an arena where he can try out his mock battles, so no outsiders enter
  9. I was wondering lately whatever happened to Husband and Wife team Panda and Raccoon? They were among my favourite of the anti-hero types, also does anyone have a 6th edition write up for them?
  10. As I am about to start a Lucha Libre Hero game set in Vibora Bay I thought I'd share my ideas on why it became synonymous with Masked Wrestlers It all begins with Therakiel falling from Heaven and crashing through the San Sebastián swamp, when he awakens it's the 1930s and he begins to study the humans in the city and he realises that there will be no bystanders in the forthcoming final battle between Heaven and Hell, as all humans must choose to side with either Light or Darkness, so to understand how they would respond he created a culture where there are no grey areas Lucha Libre, and empowered individuals with great fight abilities. So in my campaign all of the Heroes in Vibora bay are Luchadores, and the Villians are all totally evil, Black Mask, Doctor Ka, Brother Thunder all become Luchadores, Sister Rain and Juryrig are supporting characters (Voodoo specialist and Scientific consultant) Cirque Sinister ( may end up as evil luchas-still working on them) Serpentine, Mr Gemini, Deadman Walking, Al the Alligator Man (all Luchas) no supers from other locales come to Vibora Bay (Therakiel's power keeps them out, he doesn't want to pollute his experiment)
  11. My major question is whether its a Fifth or Sixth edition book, as it has an odd ordering of the attributes Str, Dex, Con, Bod, Int, Ego, Pre and includes OECV and DECV (OMCV DMCV?) and what is MAN?? I've never seen it in Fantasy Hero or any other Hero game?
  12. I'd like to know also, it's certainly one I'd purchase
  13. After re-reading some of my champions book I got to thinking about Cantrip from Teen Champions as a legacy hero specifically with her Mother being Morgaine the Mystic which could make her Father Black Paladin, maybe Morgaine realised that Black Paladin would eventually come for his daughter so she placed the child with a foster family and swore them to silence on Cantrips true parentage. This could also explain why Talisman later kidnaps and tortures Cantrips anyway just some speculation
  14. in fact originally SHIELD was closer to UNTIL but now they are more like PRIMUS
  15. I would have preferred that the kickstarter participants were given choices to vote on, after all it's because of our contributions that the project is going ahead.
  16. by taking a code against killing your character has made a choice that he will never use a level of force that could kill an opponent, these no maybes involved, if the Player is not happy with this then they should take it as a limitation/complication.
  17. I see a Code vs Killing as meaning, "I will not use a lethal level of force against an opponent unless I an certain he can resist it" eg: until I am certain that his defences can take a blow with the potential to do 10+ body then I will not use that much force. so no attack doing 5DCs+ (which if you critical could do 10 body) until you seen your opponent shrug off, a similar blow. This is where KS: Super Villians comes in handy.
  18. I assume then you mean Magical Tomes.
  19. I'd like to see 1) Mind Scan abolished and replaced with an enhanced sense 2) Mental Powers rewritten to include Emotion Control separate from Mind Control 3) Mind Link and Telepathy folded into one power Changes I wouldn't like to see 1) any changes to the basic OCV+ 11-DCV mechanic 2) any changes to the 5pt per DC mechanic
  20. I agree grey wind these are complications not power modifiers.
  21. dropped Endurance years ago, (we couldn't be bothered with the maths), and it hasn't had any negative impact on our games. In regard to pushing it now costs stun to do. charges are unchanged- the limitation is in uses
  22. it's Scarlett's motorcycle from DC-TAS pg 83
  23. maybe a high level of luck with the limitation only to trick others into thinking he's dead
  24. never used a character sheet for Hero, I've always just written the character on a sheet of paper, it's worked for me for 25 years +
