    It flatters me that at least four people are now using quotes from me as signatures. Maybe I should go into the aphorism business.

  1. What do you use it for? Lucius Alexander I use palindromedaries for taglines
  2. Fail, or try not. There is no do. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary sadly eyes the empty two liter bottle and says there is no Dew.
  3. You may have a point there. Unfortunately, it's a point in favor of ditching BOTH Striking Appearance and COM. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary buys a level of Swinging and Missing Appearance
  4. I don't know; I'd have to ask a lawyer. Lucius Alexander This palindromedary tagline is just right.
  5. Still no law against it I know of. Lucius Alexander This palindromedary tagline is obviously much more extensive than it needs to be; in short, this palindromedary tagline is too long!
  6. Goldilocks wasn't even a little girl until about 1912. That's when the first version depicting her as a child was published. Prior to that, the person who intruded on the house of the three bears was described as an old woman. The reason they changed it was that old women usually don't have to be warned against entering an unoccupied house belonging to strangers, but children might. Lucius Alexander This palindromedary tagline is too sho
  7. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary says that's just one example....
  8. I understand you to mean "Highly attractive to massey." If you say "she's a 10" I know you are attracted and that's literally ALL I know. I don't know anything about what she actually looks like and I certainly don't know how attractive I personally would find her. This is why Striking Appearance includes a PRE bonus. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary proposes something pretty and friable has Crumbliness
  9. More Actions without SPD: (Total: 22 Active Cost, 22 Real Cost) Naked Advantage: Trigger (Activating the Trigger is an Action that takes no time, Trigger requires a Turn or more to reset, Trigger can expire (it has a time limit), Two activation conditions apply simultaneously; +1/4) for up to 90 Active Points (22 Active Points) (Real Cost: 22) Still More Actions without SPD: (Total: 22 Active Cost, 22 Real Cost) Naked Advantage: Autofire (3 shots; +1/4) for up to 90 Active Points (22 Active Points) (Real Cost: 22) Halving Defenses without Armor Piercing: (Total: 60 Active Cost, 40 Real Cost) Killing Attack - Hand-To-Hand 2d6, Attack Versus Alternate Defense (Half normal ; +1) (60 Active Points); No STR Bonus (-1/2) (Real Cost: 40) One Way: (Total: 40 Active Cost, 16 Real Cost) Physical Damage Reduction, 50% (20 Active Points); Limited Power Only for calculating if character is stunned (-1 1/2) (Real Cost: 😎 <b>plus</b> Energy Damage Reduction, 50% (20 Active Points); Limited Power Only for calculating if character is stunned (-1 1/2) (Real Cost: 😎 Another Way: (Total: 15 Active Cost, 12 Real Cost) Cannot Be Stunned (15 Active Points); Nonpersistent (-1/4) (Real Cost: 12) Can't Keep Me Down: (Total: 80 Active Cost, 23 Real Cost) Aid STUN 3d6+1 (standard effect: 10 points), Trigger (Activating the Trigger is an Action that takes no time, Trigger requires a Turn or more to reset, Character does not control activation of personal Trigger; Trigger: Unconsciousness; +1/4), Reduced Endurance (0 END; +1/2), Expanded Effect (x2 Characteristics or Powers simultaneously) (STUN and END; +1/2), Delayed Return Rate (points return at the rate of 5 per Hour; +1 3/4) (80 Active Points); One Use At A Time (-1), Only to Aid Self (-1), Only Restores To Starting Values (-1/2) (Real Cost: 23) Wall? What Wall?: (Total: 60 Active Cost, 24 Real Cost) +60 STR (60 Active Points); Limited Power Only for casual STR, only for breaking walls (-1 1/2) (Real Cost: 24) Lucius Alexander You, me, and the palindromedary
  10. Hugh Neilson's argument here is that Striking Appearance is superior because there are things it can do that COM can't, and nothing COM can do that Striking Appearance can't. The flaw in this argument is that there is one thing COM does that Striking Appearance can't do. Make Certain People Happy. Some people are made happy by COM, and made unhappy by Striking Appearance. WHY this should be so is a mystery, but it cannot be denied THAT it is so. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary wonders if you look good departing would that be Goliness?
  11. Psychological Complication: I feel pretty, oh so pretty..... (Common; Strong) 15 pts Lucius Alexander And a pretty palindromedary
  12. I think we already have Striking Appearance. I also think it's easy to write up something like this: Striking Appearance - On Strike: (Total: 3 Active Cost, 1 Real Cost) +1/+1d6 Striking Appearance (vs. all characters) (3 Active Points); Limited Power No bonus to Skills (-1) (Real Cost: 1) Lucius Alexander Oh Wow, where'd it go? That beast just used a striking DISappearance to make an ABSENCE attack!
  13. If what is measured by an IQ test correlated closely with what the INT Characteristic measures, you might have a point. Just because both are called "Intelligence" doesn't mean one is the same thing as the other. The trick is comparing that to points of END on a character sheet, and also teasing out the influence of REC (remember you get a RECovery every 12 seconds.) Lucius Alexander What measure is a palindromedary?
  14. "Wars not make one great" - Yoda Lucius Alexander the palindromedary likes that quote
  15. I'm not so sure SPD has an objective benchmark: I've seen claims that Bruce Lee had a SPD of 8, and claims that he had a SPD of4 and maybe a Naked Advantage: Autofire usable on his attacks. Lucius Alexander The palindromedary wants to see the marked bench
