    I want to add Combat Sense in an 11th slot, but I am not sure how this will work due to its senselike qualities. By RAW, Combat Sense takes a Half Phase, so I could use the sense, then switch to another slot, and attack (or take a half move or whatever). However, would switching to another slot then cancel the affects of the Combat Sense, so that it would lose its benefit?


    Thanks -- forgive my rustiness.

  2. Re: Captain America and Cast


    These are awesome. But... 15 BODY for Bucky? The only characters in Champions Universe (not the Bible, I know) I can find with a BODY of 15 or higher are Bricks or quasi-Bricks. Captain Patriot has a 15.

    Even in places like London, though, things change a lot.

    cheers, Mark


    Back in my journalist days (around 2001) I interviewed the CEO of Beiersdorf Russia (the guys who sell Nivea cosmetics), and he told me that they knew they had had a factory in Moscow before 1917 but didn't have a clue where it was, given that the city had changed so extraordinarily.

  4. Re: Heroic Vampires


    That's because I only have him what he did in the comics. :P


    There is that matter...


    I had the same issue with your writeup of Alucard. :) If he really is Vlad the Impaler, he should have KS: Wallachian History, LANG: Romanian, PS: Prince, WF: Swords and Pikes and Bows, Tactics, CuK: Medieval Wallachia... PLUS all the various stuff he should know from his time as Dracula. AND everything in between. He would be a 2000-point character! It's not his fault the anime doesn't do him credit!


    It's absurd I know, but I'm really, really anal about stuff like this. Which is why my characters tend to spend huge amounts on skills they will never use. ;)


    EDIT: Just read MarkDoc's great post. Perhaps I should reconsider.

  5. Re: Heroic Vampires


    As a GM I would never allow the VPP. I woudn't allow the DEX only for CV either, or at least look at it oddly. I never use Inherent, but that's just me.


    I've tried doing a vampire as a 350-point hero and find they only work if you realize that they are mentalists and sneaking-around types primarily. They just don't dish out supers-level damage (if you keep within the original concept). Plus, the standard shticks (turning into animals and so forth) get expensive. Actually I think the only classic monster trope that works at a supers level is the Werewolf.


    Are you leaving stuff out? His CON is just 10?

  6. Re: Jungle Character - Summon Animals, Transfixing Gaze


    45 Lord of the Animals: Summon 16 200-point Animals, Expanded Class of Beings Limited Group (Animals; +1/2) (90 Active Points); Arrives Under Own Power (-1/2), Summoned Being Must Inhabit Locale (-1/2)


    Which is way out of the AP limit of the typical campaign for not much bite, especially given that the summoned animals are not bought Friendly.
