    Very Powerful Hero
  1. Yeah, that's pretty much exactly my intent. I feel like the title sums it up - if you want a simplified sheet, this might be useful (as it is for me.) If you're thinking "how will I fit everything I need on a simplified sheet?" then it's probably not as useful to you.
  2. Yo, I just left Cleveland not too long ago. I ran the Cleveland State University gaming club for a while - you can probably still find some people around that scene. Some really good people out there, though a lot of the local community is more LARP-focused, which is not everyone's thing. Also, welcome everybody!
  3. What's up, everybody? I don't know if I still count as "new" - I started with a flurry of posts - but I've definitely been lurking more since autumn hit. I'll chime in about play styles, rethinking various mechanics, and trying to be mindful of different viewpoints. Also, Papercraft. Anyway! How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? It's an alias that I've used, based on a V:tM character. I actually don't use it on the internet much; I went with it here because I was a little intimidated coming on to these forums, and didn't want a handle that I really use elsewhere just in case. This was incredibly needless - this is one of the most welcoming online communities I've encountered, RPG or otherwise - but by the time I'd realized that, I didn't want to change my handle and confuse people. What was the first tabletop RPG you played? D&D 3.0, a Dark Suns campaign. It was kind of a toxic atmosphere, very "make fun of the new kid for not knowing the rules/rolling low," but I loved it anyway. I'd also been playing RPGs through LARP for a year or two by that point, so it wasn't really my first RPG experience. What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? My roomate was running a Vampire: the Dark Ages campaign. He invited a bunch of people over for the first session, and then didn't show up. After waiting for an hour, he called me, gave me some sketchy details that I didn't write down, and said he'd be there soon. He was not there soon, so having very little idea what I was doing (I had not played any tabletop at this point), I gave it a shot. Went really well, much to my shock. What are you currently playing/GMing? I'm GMing a game set in the Mass Effect universe, based (loosely at this point) on FFG's Star Wars engine, that's been going for a little under 3 years, and wrapping up soon. I'm GMing a 1-player game for my S/O that's nominally set in Numenera, with a custom system (as she loathed Numenera's) that's heavily influenced by Planescape: Torment, and the unappreciated Nier. I'm about to start playing in an L5R game (again, with a custom system, as the GM has tried every edition, and isn't satisfied with any of them), and I'm super stoked for that.

    Really cool, though I thought this was going to be the game designer of the same name
  5. Having a baseline is so, so important. "Cool, 20 strength - what does that even mean?" Context is massive. Hope it goes well with your wife, BDH!

  7. http://www.herogames.com/forums/files/file/268-%7B%3F%7D/ Not the greatest, but for somebody who hasn't touched foamcore in over a decade? One could do worse. I'm pretty pleased thus far.
  8. Version 1.1


    Not great, but for somebody who hasn't worked with foamcore in like a decade, I'll take it. Now updated!
  9. I made a parking garage (now somewhat worse for wear after some mooks got put through it), and a skyscraper out of foam core. I also got some extra counters from the excellent card game Heroes of the Multiverse, which I used to track END, and my homie used to track the points put into his character's absorption power. Our new player used them to track STUN & BOD. I enjoyed having them around.
  10. Version 1.1


    A simplified character sheet that I made for personal use. An example character is included, to show what I used it for. If it's in any way useful, great! I plan on tweaking the layout, as I get a better understanding of what I actually want in front of me during a game If anybody has requests/suggestions, feel free to leave a comment!
  11. Kinetic energy has a serious consistency problem accross genres. Not its fault, really - as a friend of mine once said, it's not a superpower if it doesn't violate one of the laws of thermodynamics.
  12. It does make much less sense for most of Fantasy. Outside of your massive fantasy critters - trolls, ogres and the like - it doesn't make as much sense.

    Letter-sized versions of the HERO SPD chart, for those who like printing things out, or big .pdfs.
  14. +1 for the joy of knockback. It's a legitimately unique feature of the system, and highly satisfying to engage with.
