  1. I consider it a privilege to have gotten to game with him a few times, even if I never got to playin one of his games. And I'm sad that he never got to finish the new game system he was working on. It was a blast.
  2. Even sites like this might have to close down without section 230. All it takes is one lawsuit to bankrupt an individual or small business. Right now, section 230 provides for an easy dismissal. Without it, anything but the most obviously ridiculous libel claim would have to at least reach the discovery phase, which can be very expensive.
  3. Go, Elliot! Oscar-Nominated ‘Umbrella Academy’ Star Elliot Page Announces He Is Transgender
  4. The discrete time issue is one of the two reasons I've never played a speedster. That and the area-of-effect problem. Those two issues just offend my sense of verisimilitude too much. I came up with a solution I wanted to try at some point, but I never got around to playing a speedster once I thought of it. 25 Positional Uncertainty: Invisibility to Sight, Hearing, Smell/Taste and Radio Groups and Spatial Awareness , Reduced Endurance (1/2 END; +1/4) (50 Active Points); Linked (Running; -1/2), Does not conceal presence or features, only precise location (-
  5. I had to make it to fifty-five to have the confidence to dress up like this for Halloween, but at least I made it.
  6. A while back I managed to actually finish one on my writing projects. I tried to get it published, without success, and earlier this year posted it online. Someone recently made me realize I hadn't posted a link here, so, here's Lucid. It's a YA superhero novel with a trans girl protagonist. Writing it is what made me finally realize/accept that I'm trans. I'm still trying to write more, so any feedback on what worked or didn't work would be helpful.
  7. Random other thing. As with so many super powers, a person with this would have no need to be a villain if it were effectively permanent. They could be wealthy just by setting up a clinic and charging $10-40k a pop. But, like I said, a lot of powers have similar issues.
  8. I'm heavily on the "It depends on the campaign" side of things. It also depends on the likely duration based on the the reversal condition. Which makes me consider that reversal conditions should probably be figured somehow into the cost of transformation, but that's a different discussion. If it's going to be reversed by the end of the session, I'd call it cosmetic in any except a very heavy role-playing campaign, and maybe only more then, if the characters have reason to believe it's long-term or permanent. So, let's assume it's long-term or effectively p
  9. Bwa ha ha! The rules are completely eviscerated by today's Supreme Court decision! https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/06/15/supreme-court-denies-job-protection-lgbt-workers/4456749002/ Edited to add: I mean, it will take some court cases, but the precedent this sets is crystal clear.
  10. So the Trump maladministration has formalized rules making it legal for medical personnel to let me die in the street (or on the operating table) because they think I'm icky.
  11. I'd definitely go the summon route with this. The summoned creatures can be pretty cheap. Most stats can be dropped to 1, and they'll only need the couple of powers that match the ones you want them to use.
  12. I remember very little of this movie, but I loved the bit with Kurt Vonnegut.
