    I was born in the summer of my 27th year. I went home to a place I'ld never been before. There, on Ventura highway in the sunshine, the days were longer and the nights were stronger than moonshine.

  1. Q: What did the warden say to Grond the last time they caught the poor guy? A: You've barely been gone long enough to be missed, but we did watch the Game of Throwns finale without you.
  2. Q: Did you see what happened the last time the Duggers played croquet? A: Those are some wicked wickets.
  3. Ok, don't tell my players (who immensely enjoyed ditching their OMCV as soon as they could), but no GM worth his salt can see that trend without a sly smile. Wait till they face the awesome villainy of Brainsling, and his devastating Synaptic Chaos effect: Synaptic Chaos Ray, 8d6 EB, AVAD vs OMCV (+1) All or Nothing (-1/2), 60 points
  4. I never understood this. Multiform also gives you double the number of forms for a five point adder, so why would you need to put it in a multipower?
  5. I personally detest that sort of thing. In my games, the quickest way for it to be your turn in the barrel is to declare winners and losers. If you desire competition, learn to play chess. At my table, we cooperate to build a story. That means the hero gets his clock cleaned on occasion. Maybe he's kidnapped by pirates, maybe he has a hand lopped off, maybe he has to decide whether or not to kill his lover and use the body as food for his starving to death mutant dog. But without a few bruises, there's nothing heroic about beating the big bad. But I digress, this isn't about that. I feel I've a fairly good grasp of the rules, and there are many I deliberately ignore. Each GM has to choose the level of mechanical precision that works for him. Although I have played with some that were rigid about this, I can't say that effort improved the game.
  6. Q: Why aren't you wearing your waders? A: Because he's at Mar-A-Lago this weekend, we probably won't even need the shovels.
  7. If anybody suggested I should take my thirty ought six and challenge a tyrannosaur, I think I'd be grabbing my buns, too.
  8. The acoustics aren't terrible, but the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. Q: Why isn't the Red Rock Arena on Mars, like it sounds? A: There's no business like giving someone.
  9. I know it's not that important, but why do you need to be able to circle the globe twice to get anywhere on the planet? If the only concern is enough, just apply a naked modifier to the standard running: MegaScale (1m = 10,000 km; +2) for up to 12 Active Points of Running (24 Active Points). Now you can run completely around the earth three times in each phase. Maybe if you go in the right direction you can turn back time (sorry, Cher, it only works if you can run).
  10. Q: I'd ask what flavor the big white ones are, but the last guy that tried to lick one got eaten? A: I still say the worst bear to meet in the wild is Gryllis.
  11. Your advantages are a little off, Earth is about 12,000 km in diameter, so that's the farthest you would need to go teleporting: Teleportation 12m, MegaScale (1m = 1,000 km; +1 3/4) (33 Active Points) (Real Cost: 33) and the circumference is about 40,000 km so that's all the running you would need 40m Running, (1m=1000 km; +1 3/4) .
  12. Seems to me it's a failure to understand the implications of time travel. The Thanos that Tony snapped out of existence was Thanos of years ago BEFORE that Thanos snapped half the universe from existence, so when Tony erased that Thanos there was no longer a gauntlet-wearing finger-snapping Thanos to worry about, which meant the heroes didn't go off to fight Thanos in the past, and Thanos didn't rip the gem from Vision's forehead, and so on and so on. Or should we assume that Tony just sent them all home after wiping their memories, meaning Starlord took a knee to the... vitals... for nothing.

    Technically, you don't need to install Hero Designer to the hard drive. Since it's java you can just place it on a jump drive, then create scripts (or command files for those operating systems that think highly of themselves) so that it will function on whichever machine you happen to get to use. I normally use a version of the following scripts (after some attribute tweaking) on my machines: linux or MAC cd / cd ../../media/<user>/<drive>/<program location> java -jar <executable file> don't make me explain this, it's too painful, but for those other guys you have to leave the command file on the jump drive and double-click on it setlocal @echo off rem drive letter environment variable @echo %~d0 > drive.txt @echo from %~d0 >> lastused.txt for /f "delims=:" %%d in (drive.txt) do @set drvltr=%%d cd %drvltr%:\<program location> java -jar <executable jar file>
  14. Q: Just what WERE you saying to the president? A: Trickle down is a bad idea because the bees follow anyway and you're sure to get stung.
  15. Q: MICHAEL LANDON DID WHAT? A: Criss Angel, David Blaine, and Steven Frayne
