  1. Is your game online? Where do you live?
  2. Maybe there is a much more powerful supervillain, more powerful than all of them that they owe a debt to and they have to fulfill that debt or things could get really bad. However, they don't know what that job is and when they find it's something that they really don't want to do they would have a moral dilemma.
  3. I see the martial arts on the combat abilities of the attacking character but don't know how to use them.
  4. There is a Champions 5th edition adventure called Sharper than a Serpents Tongue that deals with a virus that turns people into snake monsters.
  5. I GM and have occasionally played in two games that use a hero/fate/whatever option. That is Amazing Adventures and BASH. AA uses fate points that can keep you from getting hit, effect the plot in a minor way as well as other stuff. BASH uses hero points and hero dice. Hero points let you spend dice to help with a success. Let's say you need just 2 more points to keep that atom bomb from going off, you can do that. Hero allows you do things like appear somewhere that would not normally appear at, add to a die roll by rolling an extra die, and my favorite, the power stunt that allows to do something unique with your one time in a creative way. The key to these mechanics contrivances is that they are finite. You don't have an unlimited number of these so they need to be used judiciously. You basically save that mechanic for the time you need it. So far it has worked out fine.
  6. $125.00 online from Amazon. Yikes!
  7. LOL. Why do you think Sue Richards is still married to Reed? Stretching powers indeed.
  8. Here is a link to some write ups http://www.patric.net/morpheus/cast/hero/index.html
  9. Some of my best relationships came out of gaming. I met my wife at a badly run Champions game, she ended being more interesting then the game we were playing in.
  10. Hi, Been living here in Two Rivers Wisconsin for about over a year now and I am looking for getting a Champions/Hero System group together. I have been a Hero fan since I bought my first Champions book in 1981. I have GMed several campaigns over the years and I am itching to get another one started. I am a retired/self employed person so I am flexible as far as time goes. I prefer modern or pulp era games as opposed to fantasy which I feel is saturating the community. I prefer 4th or 5th edition or maybe even earlier. I really want to run a Superhero game in mid 1970s bronze age with a Six Million Dollar Man kind of feel. Probably low powered street level stuff with some espionage. Willing to play online if I have to but I would prefer face to face at my house. Let me know if you are interested.
  11. There was a Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode with a character like that. She ended up going insane and tried to kill all of the beautiful people. She ended up being recruited by the government as an assassin.
  12. There was a 4th edition Champions character that had one power, Invisibility to all Senses. He concept was that she was a very boring person with no social skills. She had Distinctive Features: No Distinctive Features.
  13. Correction, the good supplements.
  14. The same could be said for Barbara Eden and Sofia Loren.
  15. VIPER goes back to using more conventional technology. The blasters are eventually replaced with good old slug throwers. They might have lasers but they are becoming more fragile and unreliable. Still they at least in the agent level are still a threat. The more superhuman members start to suffer problems with there powers not working. Since this is VIPER anyone that can't do the job anymore are expendable. They start to reorganize just become another terrorist group with a snake fetish. This is moreso when Nama goes back to sleep as the magic fades.
  16. She could start using Alchemy or just doing evil ritual magic, like human sacrifice and the like. I see her using books and scrolls. Maybe she would start packing a gun.
  17. There was a Star Hero adventure called the Helmet of Doctor Destroyer. In the adventure there is a reference to Dr. D dying from a simple heart attack because of old age. One weakness he had was that he couldn't extend his life span and eventually died of natural causes.
  18. The writers of Lost in Space tried really hard to give more spotlight to the other characters but Irwin Allen wanted to be all about Will Robertson, Dr. Smith and the Robot.
  19. The look of horror when Lois Lane saw all the toupees in the house boat was priceless.
  20. Legends of Tomorrow went with the whole magic creature thing and became very silly.
  21. Bicycles would be back in favor. Also horses and people would be walking again. Also, concerning air travel, what about Zeppelins? The advantages of old tech is less moving parts. As Scotty once said, "The more complicated the plumbing the easier it is to stuff up the pipes".
  22. So were supers around before all this happened or were they a result of the current event? If they were here before then powered armored characters like Iron Man would be have serious problems. The PA guy might try to go the steampunk method or just use buttons and switches. Your obligatory Dark Knight type character would have to pull out the old stuff from early in his career.
