  1. Yeah, it's definitely not a California only thing. I just returned from a trip down under, and in Christchurch, there is a lovely park that stretches along the river, but then you look at Brisbane and you see a much grander scale of what a "river city" is. The entire city is built on and around the river with a massive park that stretches along the river and contains museums, botanical gardens, etc. just like Mark Rand described in Pittsburgh.
  2. There used to be several but Dr. Eraser came through town. 😉🤣
  3. I think that since those conversion notes are already in the Champions Complete supplements, I don't think Gold Rush Games needs to do anything beyond mentioning to refer to it should the GM wish to use CC as their ruleset. No sense reinventing the wheel. That way HD can be used and make the process that much easier.
  4. So something like this? https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lower+Manhattan,+New+York,+NY/@40.6951256,-74.0133206,1729a,35y,38.97t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x89c2588f046ee661:0xa0b3281fcecc08c!2sManhattan,+New+York,+NY!3b1!8m2!3d40.7830603!4d-73.9712488!3m4!1s0x89c259885419838b:0x2d39c2f6ed6db3c!8m2!3d40.7208516!4d-74.0006447
  5. And does topology factor in at all? Heights of buildings, hills in the city, that sort of thing, or do you look at it more as a series of roads with locations?
  6. Has Hero Designer been updated to reflect this or does it have an option to enforce Champions Complete? As the person who will likely be creating all the characters in HD, the answer to that is pretty critical.
  7. I'm liking this approach. Immersion is a good thing.
  8. I might be able to help with that. ? Yeah, I'm still around. Although I spend most of my time traveling the world these days.
  9. This has been a consistent trend ever since the early 2000s, possibly earlier. Ever since the comics started going "darker" with every character and group, society as a whole continues to relish in the "fallen hero" or anti-hero. Look at how incredible Deadpool did at the box office. Look at the difference between the Dark Knight films' successes versus the other DC movies... oh wait, that's an entirely different problem. Anyway you get the drift. Society has become so incredibly jaded by the constant stream of "bad news" that they've lost their hopes and dreams that the early comics gave us and promoted. Sure Marvel characters were always flawed in some way, but that made them humans with powers, rather than powers parodying humans. But I think that "flawed essence" grew out of control. That's what I liked so much about Cap America: First Avenger, it actually showed what a real hero is: the willingness to personally lose everything to save others. Now we just have jokes quipping from the lips of characters and that makes them "fun" and "good" because they make us laugh. Laughter dies, hope can last for an eternity if we don't let it go.
  10. I can appreciate that. I suppose that it was a good thing that I started the Google+ Hero Community.
  11. There we go... Just had to read through the tips post and make a couple changes. Now I need to figure out why the email updates stopped. I'm assuming that is a new feature as well?
  12. Weird, I'm' not getting any emails from the forums anymore, and the last post I see from this thread was Aug 7th of last year. What's up with that?
