  1. I like it. My namesake character, Boll Weevil, would be literally too crazy to die.
  2. I'd like to see a simple knockback calculator. Input distance traveled and what lies behind (wall 10 meters, 5pd 10 body). Calculate total distance traveled and damage.
  3. I just downloaded the app and it works great. I love the features it has now even as a work in progress. Great job!! I haven't tried uploading a character yet but the hero-specific dice roller alone makes me happy.
  4. This is great. Thanks for sharing!! What are the 1/2, 1/4 etc columns in the DC summary?
  5. How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? -Boll Weevil is one of my first Champions characters, a not-based-on-anyone character that can cling to walls and shoot webs that catch thieves just like flies. I have been on the boards here since 2000. I lurk frequently but haven't posted much lately. What was the first tabletop RPG you played? D&D boxed set in 1981. What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? Champions. I think my first real game other than combat on the included map (with Rosie's Diner!) was the Target Hero supplement. I've never been great at GMing, to be honest, but many times it was the only way to get my friends to play. What are you currently playing/GMing? Nothing currently. My local gaming group broke up years ago and I haven't played since the demise of Hero Central.
  6. Re: The Abnormals. A speedster, huh? I couldn't agree more. One of my all time favorite characters is Quicksilver. As a GM, I had always feared speedsters (and mentalists) as game-breakers but I think I could handle it now. Thanks for the input.
  7. Re: The Abnormals. A while back, I asked who would be interested in playing in a campaign using pre-generated characters. This was the campaign I had in mind Also, you can see the group needs some rounding out. At the very least they need some air support and ranged Blasters. I suppose that could be the same guy. How would you round out this group if you were writing this comic book?
  8. Re: What Are You Listening To Right Now? Seventy Sevens - Ping Pong over the Abyss. Ah, the eighties.
  9. Re: Character Sheet Outlines Wow, these bring back some memories. We should have an art thread just for characters made with these. In the 80's, my tool of choice was colored pencils. Now these templates are easy to color in Photoshop.
  10. Re: from little plot seeds, mighty games do grow: Share your ideas!
  11. Re: What Are You Listening To Right Now? Ghetto Defendant The Clash
  12. Re: What Are You Listening To Right Now? Astral Weeks Van Morrison
  13. Re: Champions Jargon "Mortgaged" - Like in Monopoly, when a character's chit-marker is turned over to indicate they are -30 STUN. As in, "Ooh, Boll Weevil is mortgaged!"
  14. Re: Superhero Images Well, let's just say I gave it a try and leave it at that. I will blame this on my crappy mouse. Yeah, that's the ticket...
  15. I don't color, I stamp I like it! I have always had a hard time with metallic. I found a pic of C3PO online, erased the yellow and Clone Stamped the brassy goodness. It's a little darker than yours but I wasn't sure exactly what metal you were looking for...
  16. Go go gadgets TheEmerged, are any of your campaigns set in modern Cincinnati? Is this Spam gun yours or is it published? I had forgotten about Gadgets. My favorite was the rocket skates. Gadgets read like the Acme catalogue. I would buy a FrEd Gadgets book.
  17. The little lady and I finally saw Minority Report. If you haven't seen it yet, my wife and I BOTH liked it which is rare and ,IMO, a glowing endorsement. I didn't like everything, but it is a very watchable movie. What I was most impressed was the cadre of non-lethal weapons employed by the police department. Jetpacks and flying cars are futuristic movie must-haves if not so realistic. The non-lethal police gear though was absolutely believable. As a resident of a city rife with anti-police brutality sentiment, I thought the "sick-sticks" and what I can only describe as a Knockback cannon were truly inspired. Has anyone attempted to write up such weapons or have any homespun non-lethal police weapons you would like to share?
  18. Cincinnati Council of Evil The Cincinnati Council of Evil. Mastermind: Marge Schott. She has an NND EB (defense is LS: Breathing or being a smoker). Second in command would be Larry Flint in some powered, wheelchair-based battle station.
  19. That's half the fun THEN what would I complain about? Honestly, coloring the CE pictures in Photoshop is about the only thing that kept me sane through the last month of my wife's pregnancy and the first month of daddyhood. Oh, the screaming!! It also gave me an opportunity to learn Photoshop a bit.
  20. I have it. At last, I have Conquerors, Killers and Crooks!! Well done. I'm still disappointed Ripper, Deathstroke and The Conquerors didn't make the cut. I finally finished coloring all the pictures in Classic Enemies. Now I have to start anew (well, except for Black Paladin and a few recycles) with CKC. I have begun scanning and slowly stripping away the shading to reveal the line-art. I know asking for color pictures is too much to ask, but at least give us lineart so we can make our own. Champions is a comicbook simulator, I hate when my pictures look photocopied. The characters are great. The write-ups are really helpful. It has long been a pet peave of mine to have a character sheet with powers that are not explained in the text. CKC takes great pains to avoid that, carefully explaining everything on the sheet. All told, I am pleased as punch with my new book. Thanks guys, good job.
