  1. Just a sec, I'll adjust the horizontal hold.
  2. If you change all the character names and place names, as well as the names of any events then you have a decent chance of getting away with that. See Fifty Shades of Grey (or don't, if you value your sanity). But it's not really relevant because game mechanics are excluded from copyright by long-established case law. On the other hand, any part of the game beyond pure mechanics may well be subject to copyright, and I don't know of any cases involving RPGS that firmly establish where the line is between mechanics and theme/setting/etc. Further, as mentioned above, just
  3. The side effects on the vaccines seem so random. I'm 55 and reasonably fit (I run 5k a few times a week), and just got a mildly sore area and exhaustion for one day. My friend who is 35 and working on hitting Olympic qualifying times for running got shivering, sweating, and severe body aches (plus exhaustion).
  4. I really hope you mean the vaccine and not the virus.
  5. I just received my second Moderna injection. Soon I will be invincible!
  6. I'm pretty sure is was Billy Joel's Glass Houses. There's a chance, though, that it was Pat Benatar's In the Heat of the Night. I know for sure that the first CD I bought was XTC's Skylarking, and the second was Jethro Tull's Original Masters.
  7. Yeah, but you've got to be careful with your lines, else you could get tied up in gnats.
  8. Red October is how I found my first Champions campaign. I posted there that I was looking for a game to join and Bob invited me to play in his Sentinels campaign. I have a lot of fond memories from that campaign. I joined right around the time they were switching over to 4th edition to help playtest it before publication.
  9. I have received my first dose of the vaccine.
  10. Even if that's the case, they should shut down their lights to reduce the strain on the grid.
  11. Yeah, I was on the previous boards as well. But any dates associated with those have been lost in the mists of time. Thanks. My gaming groups have generally had decent gender diversity (even back when I was pretending to be a guy), but otherwise, yeah, pretty pale, overall.
  12. Today is the eighteenth anniversary of me joining this forum. My forum membership is old enough to vote! 🥳🎉🎊💥🎊🎉
  13. "Dog Debtor?" Those vet bills do add up. "Does our girl deal by tying rope?" self explanatory "Do God Butter?" you don't want to know.
  14. How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? It's the name of one of the first superhero characters I came up with. Somehow I've never played a version in an actual Champions game, but I've played variations in City of Heroes and Champions Online What was the first tabletop RPG you played? AD&D, in my freshman year of highschool. What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? AD&D, in college. What are you currently playing/GMing? Sadly, nothing currently. I've mostly just played Hero stuff (and variants) since the early nineties. I've m
  15. As a cyborg who happens to be named Jill, I approve this thread.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Go, Elliot! Oscar-Nominated ‘Umbrella Academy’ Star Elliot Page Announces He Is Transgender
  19. 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 (-
