  1. Thank you my friend. Those were truly generous words, You shall always have a seat at my table.
  2. Good to see you old friend.

  3. Hello again friends, I have been off the boards other than the random trolling session for the last .years. During that time I have moved twice, gotten married and all but given up on my life long past-time. Cut to today and I live north of Seattle and I may have just gotten over my last game group of almost a decade. I still talk to some of my friends from the group at random, but armed with the knowledge that I am not going to move back to Boise I have to seek new adventure with like minded people. I am a GM looking for players. I can join a group that already has a GM, but hones
  4. Honestly when I start campaigns I look for what I consider a fixed point in the game and I build my images off of that. Like in my steampunk adventure I had looked up steampunk flying machines and fond a great pic of an airplane with two coal exhaust stacks with black smoke billowing out of it as it flew through the sky. It was the design piece that influenced all of my descriptions. The web is a great assist in successfully navigating the descriptive of campaigns and individual scenes with simple pics of highlighted items it gets your descriptive juices flowing and your players tend in to
  5. We just entered the third month of the campaign. I would like to thank everyone that gave advice and or criticism to the idea of the meta rapture and I took it all in and made the needed adjustments. We started off a year and a half after the meta rapture with a couple of the heroes being commissioned by the two meta religious groups: The Jadye and the Dark. Both of these groups religions are based upon the end of the world. The Jadye believe it is the end of days and that there will be another rapture and are working to prove themselves worthy of the next and final rapture before
  6. Re: Cool concepts for your games. The Man-Handler!! With meaty man hands as a power. Very nice.
  7. Re: 1000 Star HERO Weapons Where was this thread when I was running my Star Hero Game?
  8. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! This is the first of the four stories leading to the campaign. The story starts off with the Night Marshall at slightly reticent and reflecting on his life. This tale leads into the next, but there will be a passage of time in between. It is also not the final copy, but it is so close I wanted to post it. Hope you enjoy and feel free to comment
  9. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! Actually I will be posting the first of my short stories about my games transition group. Led by the Night Marshal from the Ravenswood book. It should help to ease people into the setting while giving some depth into some of the alternate ways and types of people that still managed to hero. I would have it out today, but I have to get someone to edit for me. Should be posted tomorrow.
  10. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! If there's any mysticism or wuxia. Even if the hero could pass a tetrino test(which detects the amount of faster than light energy life particles your body absorbs every second), it could literally turn into a which hunt. In modern day society if someone could leap 50 feet no matter how they explained it. The benchmarks they have surpassed by leaps and bounds are frightening.
  11. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! We are transitioning as a group. The last game was centered around pc's with a silver age flair and through job offers, moves and inclination changes the game in order to maintain viability has to adjust or die.
  12. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! The Meta Rapture!!(Remember only the meta humans are affected)
  13. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! The big reveal is actual at the end of the fourth short stories I'm writing. The stories follow lives of a group that tries to buck the trend and form a heroic group and at the end of fourth story. The META RAPTURE!! I know it sounds ridiculous, but all the noble and worth are pulled up to heaven leaving behind the neutral and the evil. When I say worthy I mean the young and pure as well, so if there is a young meta with evil in his heart he stays and the pure ones are gone. It seems a little dark, but it gives us a campaign on the pre
  14. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! steriaca, I hadn't gotten to it yet, but after reading the entire thread I whole heartily approve of the combination and ingenuity it took to create it. Rep for Major Tom and you as well my friend for pointing it out.
  15. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! Well, this is the back side of a 4 and 1/2 year campaign, rather than start over. In order to keep the same characters and places that everyone loves. There has too be a passage of time, a change of the guard and the rules by which we operate have to change in order for people to evaluate each situation as new. Now some of the favorite pc's and npc's have reacted differently to these events and there has been a mass exodus to canada, by some of the more motivated heroes. In short....yes, that is exactly the point. This however is not t
  16. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! Here are the last two. As We move forward we'll put more game info on this and our own site.
  17. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! Here are the PDF pre-gens for the pcs. Not really my style, but the characters in this Ravenswood class are game cannon.

  19. Re: Champions of Infinity Campaign and RPG Aid! The actual intent of this is to Chronicle the happenings of the game as it unfolds and if anyone sees something they like it's at their disposal. Originally I built a free website for the campaign at http://champions2015.webs.com and then decided to invest a couple bucks into something that wasn't going to run out of space. That site isn't online yet so we are still currently defaulting at champions 2015. Where I am picking up in the game is a series of short stories about a group of heroes that gets together under the confines
  20. It's been quite some time since I was on the boards, lots of familiar faces and lots of new ones. The traffic on the site seems down since the "Glory Days!", but I see tons of great info being exchanged. To that effort I was hoping our RPG group can contribute a new thread dealing with our upcoming Champions game. It is my first endeavor since we wrapped up our Hero Talk campaign in 2009. This new game is the same game world 5 years later, after the "Goldberg Security Initiative" was passed in the United States. The Goldberg Initiative is a limitation on the role Meta-humans c

  22. Re: What's a good way to learn the game? Kruhl, A great way to learn the game would be from Aylwin13 and myself. I believe you said that you frequent the hobby town on cole and ustick. Previously Aylwin and I had a golf date for this sunday we could suspend our match play and meet you at your favorite game store. Aylwin and I have been playing Champions since the early 80s. If your game let me know so I can set it up. The Doctor
  23. Re: Spanish character naming help If he were gay you could use the more feminine "La Llama(The Flame) and for his sister La Dama Fria(The Cool Lady). Hence said La LLama y La Dama Fria
  24. Re: My Champions books in my collection. All the books are at least in Good Condition except the Star Hero which is in Fair condition because of the rips around the edges of the cover, though it is in no danger of falling off. Duncan I am not quiting. I'm just looking to reinvent myself as a gamer and a game master and I think the physical manifestation of this realization was realizing that I needed to step away from my time honored "GM treasure trove source books". Unfortunately they didn't sell and I don't have the will to list them seperately so I'll probably just keep them and
