  1. Unless it goes terribly, in which case lying is OK.
  2. Its also a reasonable Skype-replacement for voice chats. At least one of the games I am in uses discord for game/forum chat and group voice chat.
  3. The real intent is to allow for a Recovery when someone is more that -20 STUN or what have you. Have someone who just doesn't stay down and give them a Recovery every Phase they would act, even when they are -20 or -30 below. Then...surprise! He/she pops up like a jack in the box.
  4. True enough. I guess my original thought was someone that didn't stay out for long, rather than a device to use on someone else. "Smelling salts" certainly is more useful if bought as healing.
  5. I was thinking about the negative STUN consciousness/recovery timetable and was wondering if it would be reasonable to buy something like smelling salts as 10 REC as well as +50 STUN (only to move up the STUN recovery time chart). Anybody ever done something like this? Is it too breaky or a good idea? Nothing worse than sitting on your (unconscious) hands while a fight rages on because you won't get a recovery for another 4 TURNS or so.
  6. I liked it quite a bit. I thought the action was great and that Wakanda was wonderfully realized. The characters were solid and well developed, though I didn't really see much of a point to Ross' character other than to insert an otherwise cynical outsider into Wakanda and have him come around to who they are and why they are so hidden. Maybe to shine a light from the outside looking in on the isolated city and people. I dunno, it seemed a little off. The Wakandan tech was my favorite part. So cool and so fitting I can't say there was anything I did not like and would personally rank it in my top 3 of Marvel movies (with CA: Winter Soldier and Avengers). It added to the MCU significantly and made every further instance where Black Panther shows up that much more meaningful.
  7. Iconic Man. It looks like it will allow for some wonderful built-in RP with the PCs having a link of sorts to one another. Also, they have to work together to overcome "super threats" because none of them have all the powers needed.
  8. Wild Bill was a good pseudo-western with Jeff Bridges as the gunslinger. Some good depictions of duels.
  9. Deathwish Vigilante in my supers campaign in Boston. Jury is out on whether he is a hero or villain.
  10. For TURN orders, I usually load up the pertinent Heroes, villains, NPCs and vehicles for my session in Hero Designer and export the Combat Record, sorted by SPD and DEX, as an HTML file. Then I open that up in a new browser tab, so I can go to and from Roll20 and my participant data. I keep a Notepad file open to manage things like Flashes, Entangles or whatnot.
  11. I don't do much with scripting for my Roll20 Hero game. In fact, I have done more with it since stealing from Doc Democracy's work in the Champions sandbox he built than I ever did on my own. He's got some good ideas as to how to accomplish some things I'd never considered. Roll20 is good for flexibility at the expense of a DIY approach to everything.
  12. I will try to implement some of this stuff in the near future. It is already a lot of time to get my act together for my two games as well as "run my regular life" but I am still interested.
