  1. Thank you for the replies and clarification. To Lord Liaden, Can I assume that you could have Allied supers operating in say Britain during the Blitz or earlier during the Battle of Britain before the majority of the US got involved? Does it effect supers from neutral countries? and to Christopher R. Taylor How low a level would you recommend? Would Roy Thomas' Invaders retcon be about right? Do I understand right that while our heroes can't set foot on Axis controlled territory without becoming fascist supporters that the Axis supers are running around unchecked or are they deployed against the Allied supers on the homefront? The latter obviously mandating supers staying on domestic deployment and preserving the genre as it was most often depicted in GA comics. Thanks again in advance
  2. Back in the day when this book was being discussed it was to be set exclusively in the U.S. Is that still the case or are the Allies able to send supers into axis controlled territory without the Axis taking control of them?
  3. Invincible/invincible Universe The Elementals but Bill Willingham does't seem to think he will get the rights back The Power Factor and I'm not sure if it is part of DC or not, the Dakotavers/Milestone
  4. Virago - literally meaning woman of warrior virtues Termagant - Female brawler
  5. She could get a sample of his dna, however you want that to work, and with ill gotten gains set up a genetics testing lab. With another female accomplice she could frame him for having a child out of wedlock, which of course he will deny. Then a day or two after the story breaks and any TMZ-esque media have reported it she could have the "Mom" present a falsified paternity test showing the child's lineage. Cut to a little while later and several other faux lovers come forward with stories of illicit liaisons and hush money to keep them quiet. As long as the salacious details keep coming the public will try him in the court of public opinion long before the testing lab could be thoroughly researched and the tests debunked. Maybe he gets denounced by media pundits looking to rile up there listeners and the whole thing snowballs till his reputation is smeared beyond easy repair. The real problem might be how you would have him ever recover his good name. I suppose if he has a secret ID he could just switch costumed identities but shrinking is semi rare.
  6. Assuming your players are all new to hero 1.) Keep the Speed of the pregens at the lower end. it makes the player's phase come up that much quicker. 2.) I might plan for two combats and have the third ready if you should need it. Good luck, stay loose and have fun
  7. Returning after a long time. How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name) During college I had a job which included coming in on weekends and running Virex and pulling all the porn off of the various work stations. There was a group who came in for LAN parties gaming Lucasarts X-Wing combat flight sim. We all had call signs based on our squadron,: Red Leader, Red 2, etc. Since I was in every weekend I got good and after I got lucky and took out a particularly tough Imperial Ace one of the guys gave me the nickname. Also I'm a redhead. What was the first tabletop RPG you played? D&D 2nd edition. What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? The same guy who introduced me to D&D had a homebrewed superhero game based on D&D mechanics. I took it over to give him a break. What are you currently playing/GMing? Playing: Trail of Cthulhu Running: Prepping for a 6th ed, Champions campaign based around a super team working for UNTIL.
  8. Someone with Flash/light or darkness based powers maybe?
  9. Thank you very much for the reply LL, It is good to be back.
  10. I've been away for a looong time and everything 6th edition is new to me. Other than restating the characters for the current edition are there any differences in the characters from the 5th ed books? Are they the versions from the MMO? Thanks in advance
  11. Suprheroica isn't always limited to the US mmedia. Kuwait has a huge superteam, the 99. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_99 http://comicvine.gamespot.com/the-99/4050-22548/characters/ http://www.the99kids.com/ There should be plenty of minable ideas there.
  12. Damn. I just heard about his passing this morning. I fondly remember reading his review of Champions for the Space Gamer that got me to try the game that would become our house system ever since. Never met the man but no game writer has influenced me more. Ken Hite and Robin Laws podcast has a very nice tribute and analysis to Aaron this week. http://www.kenandrobintalkaboutstuff.com/?cat=3 Bye Aaron, wish I could have sat at your table.
  13. Re: Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company They just got their website and forum back up http://www.tritacgames.com/
  14. Re: Get 'em while they're hot! Proditor's Pad V&V conversions closing down Thanks for all the work converting them in the first place.
  15. Re: My Tank is Fight! by Zack Parsons When I was reading "MTIF?" for material in my G Age campaign, I thought of Habakuk as more of a semi mobile base. It's almost a mobile island. Are you planning on statting them out as functionally useful or straight as is? The reason I ask is that when I made a pass through, the various projects kept falling into three broad categories: The plausible ala vampire scopes and sub cruiser, the crazy, the flying tank, and great plot device, ala the Landkreuzer, superguns and Silbervogel. I'm looking forward to your take on the flying tank.
