I am calling it Las Vegas Vampires II since we had a previous V: TM campaign also set in Las Vegas. As a bit of a background the last campaign dealt with a Sabbat infestation and takeover attempt of the Vegas Strip. This was foiled well by the actions of the previous players in a previous campaign. -----------------------------Week one “a Gathering of Strangers”---------------------------- Quote of the Week- “There are no items in Tony’s lingerie drawers.” ------------------Week two- “and the Malkavians play on”----------------------------- Quote of the Week Goes to Ioseph for “He’s dressed as a lizard you are dressed as a cop they both are pretending.” _______________________________Week 5________________________________ QOTW: “there are just rats and vampires in the vegas tunnels which one are u?” -Rahni GM-“He’s stupid but fast in reaction? Steven-“That’s a paparazzi to me!” _______________________________Week 6______________________________ QOTW: -Darylle “they may have ringworms or is afraid of heights”. _______________________________Week 6______________________________ Quotes of the Week: “I have Rats and can Fight, of course I have redeeming features”-Skip “I can dress for this occasion, Black Silk” –Adam “We now have touchdown lizard”- Gm “it sounded like a dog, smelled like a dead lizard and looked like empty space”-Adam Sig other Steven starts writing the script for “Rabid Zombie Whorehouse in 3D” Plot twist: caused by vampire owner. _______________________________Week 8______________________________ Leopold-“I’m gonna see if I can find a hooker with a pulse.” Leopold- “I’m sure it doesn’t take a craft skill to wrap a Barbie doll in a black cord.” Gm “That sounds like the conversation between you two has taken a wrong turn.” Leopold-“He’s helping me with my back up plan.” _______________________________Week 9______________________________ “They will be able to say ‘hey Ugly’, not run screaming in terror”- Steven “The best we have is Circus Circus…”- Leopold “If you didn’t eat the white board markers you might be the primogen.” -Gm “I have a binary appearance!!!” - Steven _______________________________Week 10______________________________ “I want to try to pass myself off as a ….”-Leopold “Transvestite Hooker?” –Luke “Someone Has to Lick that”- Mindy “you may need your car getting repaired…” -Mindy “After running me over” - Steven “It was the only game wherein the Missippi could de-pants you.” -GM _____________________________ Week 15_________________________________ Mugging your way to a Lyger? -GM _______________________________Week 18______________________________ Steven to Prince: “So what does a Ninja, two guys in a parked car the Channel 7 news van and a Rattlegoose (Rattlesnake/Mongoose sown together with demonic magic) have in common?” Prince: “I don’t know, what?” Steven-“All these are waiting around a place you sent me.” _______________________________Week 19______________________________ “Runs Great, Smells like Mollusk….”-GM My character having identified himself to his opponent as ‘Wang’ pushes his opponent down the stairs where upon the enemy vampires head collides with the metal safety railing ending his flight. After this nasty fight I feel cheated because now he is “Whangggg!” (the sound his head made striking the railing.)
  2. Re: Heroes for pay Jarvis aint no slouch in the kitchen!
  3. Re: Heroes for pay Zip Boy from The Specials movie had just this sort of a job. He was looking to get the main character into plastics work using his laser powers....
  4. Re: The Inventor Skill theoretically you can "reinvent the wheel" its just that it is generally easier to have someone else do the work, then stand on the shoulders of "giants that came before". Probably the way it is written Inventing isn't nealy as universal as the character seems to think. Realistically Inventor is an add on skill to possibly a whole slew of skills (probably Mechanic, Ps: Flight technician, Ks: Flight Technology for "inventing" an improvement on a plane) Inventing should probably double the time and resources a project calls for at a minimum, though with programs at least "it will be done when it is done" is bog standard. Inventor also means you have to make the base roll then the inventing roll so on a reasonable character that means twice the chances of failure.
  5. Re: Create a Hero Theme Team! Got an Idea there old man since you finished off the team (I believe)?
  6. Re: Would you marry a near-human alien? But there is a link between immuno-systems and attractions.... just nothing a perfume can reproduce.
  7. Re: Would you marry a near-human alien? Sorry, I don't know of what land of pygmies you are from but I dont think of that as larger than my typical modern woman.
  8. Re: STAR HERO Reading List OK a real Book The City Who Fought (Anne Mccaffrey's recent coauthored Contribution to her series Forget Who though) Millitary Sci Fi And brainships! have another but must look it up.
  9. Re: STAR HERO Reading List *warning pet Peeve* Home Owners Insurance. The Original Star Hero Stated Hovercraft do not exist. My Home Owners Insurance specifically states it Will Not Cover Hovercraft. If Allstate Insurance thinks Hovercraft exist to the point where they wont cover it in case of damage to a home then yes, Hovercraft really do exist.
  10. Re: How many character sheets is to many? Sheer mechanics? no background bs? Ill top everyone else so far. 1 150 point hero a mercenary unit captain/leader 3 50 point followers a 'priest' and his acolyte, plus a Mage (25 points cost to the main character) 1 DNPC follower for the mage (no cost to the main character) 4 30 point 'leaders' (16 points off of main character) 32 25 point followers (the rest of the unit) (35 points cost to the main character) and because it was fantasy the other characters sheets were "only money" 1 Base 36 light warhorses 5 Wagons (1 for the spellcasters, 4 for the supplies) 10 oxen (for pulling the wagons) 1 Ballista 1 Catapult A fan of the Earthdawn system took one look at the stack of paper I had and swore he would never run HERO. Sigh, good GM though. oops just remembered. the spellcasters could summon 5 critters among them....
  11. Re: How to portray alcoholism... Versus Venus Flytrap, who followed the standard progression expected. Gotta love Tim Reid!
  12. Re: Is Defender the new Seeker? uhm epic fail when your gritty hero has any part of his equipment called 'cute'.
  13. Re: What would superheroes Twitter about?
  14. Re: Creature: Grandfather-of-all-the-Reptiles uhm one Fantasy world I was in had an Elephant/troll crossbreed due to some very F'ed up magic. good thing the GM didn't run them like you suggest.....
  15. Re: Raven: Swordmistress of Chaos Hmm do you have some comparisons between this series and say Mercedes Lackey's writing style? give me an idea if I should keep an eye out for more of the same....
  16. Re: 150 Point Project How about Gandalf with a Multiform for much cheezy goodness? and perhaps his Staff and Ring aren't paid for by the character?
  17. Re: Need a Hero 4th edition helicopter and a van for Doctor Brutallus. Followers should not buy equipment the Good doc is using. 1/25th the cost for a copter is abusive IMNSHO.
  18. Re: "Normals" gaining superpowers: how would they change in terms of mentality? a few mundane uses of the listed powers: Laser eyes: Laser writing/art. in addtion to never needing a writing utensil but being FASTER at drawing or being able to create those 3 dimensional images in plastics. X-ray vision: finding cancers and hairline fractures before they get worse. addiction to gambling would be the last thing that would happen with probability control. *bored voice* oh, look... I win, again.... *Yawn* Invisibility: IMNSHO this is the same as uber stealth, frankly it isn't that great. The weird thing about this list is that most of the powers technically wont allow you to collect the reward from the Amazing Randi for passing his test to prove there are psychic powers.
  19. Re: "Normals" gaining superpowers: how would they change in terms of mentality? So a singing, dancing, Kung fu master 9.95 lb. computer/robot that can predict the stock market and all sporting events past present and future is perfectly ok? Gold bricks? not very useful. The Govt is allready looking for these abuses. However going to the free gem mine in the U.S. and then paying taxes on your haul....
  20. Re: Hero System Books Have Way to many Typos Soooo is this where we put the typo's I have discovered in the Lord of the Rings books?
  21. Re: Need a dinosaur, okay two. find the Kong thread in Pulp hero, I swiped plenty of stuff to crawl through my super hero city sewers to challenge my heroes.
  22. Re: Need Help with Low-powered supers tis easier to give points than take them away....
  23. Re: Sewage disposal in a fantasy world Basically to sum up you have three choices 1. put it somewhere else:from a standard sewer transportation system all the way to paying beings to cart it away and get it to a usable compost location. 2. have a crittter deal with it. from moss/plants/whatever that thrive on the stuff to draconic incinerators. (hmm perhaps the moss could have magical spell enhancing properties that mages would want to add to their spell components, thus the reason why there are so many dungeons and the mages stock them....) 3. convert it to something useful. perhaps a magic spell of s**t into gold?
  24. Re: Herbs Actually there is an old norse recipe that requires fermented deer pee to add to a brew for making berzerkers. 'Shrooms just aint got the kind of kick ya need for real berzerkers.
