    kukuli got a reaction from Tech in Summon question   
    The way my group uses  an obvious focus with an indirect power is that  an observer will know something is happening with the Helm, but will not know exactly what the effect is until  it manifests.. The GM might insist on an intelligence roll for someone to know an indirect power is coming from  the helmet.  Occasionally, hiding behind something might hide the source, but if used to often that tactic violates the rule that a disadvantage must give a disadvantage. That is a GM call.

    I am preparing for my groups sorta annual gaming weekend trip and wanted to  go back to mapping, which we haven't been doing lately.  So I pulled together 100 miniatures and a 30" by 7' grid with dry erasable cover for about $12 plus tax.  I bought a pack of 100 meeples  for $9.99 from Amazon. Then I numbered each color to ten and put eyes on front to mark facing.  After we tried them out I put a dot of paint on the top , a different color for each number, to help identify them from above.  I then bought a roll of wrapping paper with a one inch grid on the back  (make sure it is labeled as having a grid) and a clear shower curtain from Dollar Tree.  Dollar Tree also has dry erase markers, if you need them.  Any other cheap  ideas?

    So, I'm at the movies watching Spiderman with 8 of my best friends when the 7.1 hit more than 100 miles away.  The rolling waves  felt like at  least 30 seconds.  You could tell the non-Californians by who got up and quickly left the theater.  The rest of us just stayed in our seats and watched  the movie.

    I am running a steampunk game and made Wild, Wild West required watching for a teenager who wanted to join the group.  One with Dr. Loveless required.  The show was a great intro to the Steampulp feel of my game.
     
    For those who don't know, Dr. Miguelito Loveless was a mad scientist who believed he was the hereditary king of Mexico and was really ticked off with West and Gordon for continually interfering with his plans of world conquest.  He was also a little person. He was played brilliantly by Michael Dunn.

    Dumb Luck:  7pts Luck 3d6 (15 Active Points); Side Effects:  Unluck 3d6, Side Effect occurs automatically whenever Power is used (-1), 0 end
     
    Once, the character, who had no real combat skills but HAP points coming out of her ears, was drugged into a zombie state and was wandering around a dilapidated shack.  She rolled 2 levels of luck and 1 level unluck and went crashing through the floor. Luckily, her fall was cushioned by a couple of goons, who were knocked out.  And the team found the enemy's hideout when they went looking for her.

    Today I had to put down my 16 year old Shiba Inu, Foxy Dude.  He has been failing for a few months and  sometime last night he collapsed,  He may have thrown a clot or had some other  kind of stroke.  He couldn't stand and was showing signs of some brain damage.  I know that I couldn't let him suffer, but I'm feeling guilty.  I decided to kill a creature who could love.  It's going to take some time..  He was 2  years past his experation date, but it is still hard.

    I don’t generally do this, but I feel the need to correct a misconception. Although there are self identified “Christians” who believe that the poor, sick, imprisoned or homeless are not their problem, they are specifically ignoring Jesus’ teachings.
     
    Matthew 25:34 -25:46
     
    "Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 
     
    Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal."
     
    There are many other passages, but this is my favorite. I’m not asking anyone to change their beliefs, but if people want to talk about what Jesus taught, they should know what He actually taught. And I now withdraw from the discussion.

    Old Man, why do your kids go to Sunday School at this particular church? If they have this kind of belief about one of Christianity's core tenets (responsibility to others), what other beliefs do they have on other tenets that are just as significant?

    kukuli got a reaction from bigdamnhero in Experiences teaching people Hero Game system   
    I am not the most experienced GM when it comes to introducing players, but I found Heroic Talents to be easier than trying to make powers by scratch.  I run a heroic level Pulp/steampunk  game and even when I design the Heroic talents myself it decreases the amount of frustration for the first time player.  Pulp Hero , Dark Champions and the Widening Gyre have lists of pre-generated abilities.  I use 5th edition and have designed a few extra Heroic Talents myself.  Use the lists or talk to your players and write up powers for them. Then let them work out the skills and other abilities. It is the creation of unique powers that complicates matters more than any other part of the character generation system.  When the player is ready to write up something more difficult you can teach them how.
     
    I am also working on an easier to understand character sheet, with combat necessitates on one side and noncombat on the other.  I'm also looking for ways to cut out the character generation artifacts from the  descriptions.  I'll keep the Hero Designer files for reference.
