  1. The Icons Forum is not really a forum for Icons, just an all-purpose forum. That's why I posted here.
  2. Hi all, Although I have almost all the books for Champions, at least the ones that are necessary to play, I have never completely understood all the nuances of playing the game. So, sadly, I have never played the game. Every time I see forums to join up, I have always avoided them since I didn't know what I was doing, and no one wants to be the guy in the game, where everybody needs to explain everything to them! However, I figured the best place might be to understand the game is to start by developing the character I had in mind. Can someone help me do this? Here is the character concept that I had in mind: My character is named Flex, he has the powers of stretching his limbs and his body, he travels by forming into a ball and bouncing, and he can harden his fists in order to create a solid punch with his attack. He is a Black African American in his early 40's, still in good shape for his age. He is not married, but does have a love interest in a news reporter who he has come across as Flex, whose name is Bianca Guerra. His secret identity is Dr. Odell Bagley, he is the Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner for the Police Department. He gained his powers through an attempt on his life, in which after providing key evidence in a cold case, the crime organization tried to kill him by making it look like an accident. While in his exam room during an autopsy, his lab doors were sealed and deadly gas was flooded into the room. Knowing that he only had one chance to live, he injected himself with embalming agent, and passed out. When he came to, he discovered that he now had super-stretch powers. Calling himself Flex, he began to start his war on crime while he continued to aid the police in his role as Medical Examiner-Coroner. Since his role requires it, he does have medical expertise, he can perform surgery, provide medical aid. He is a bit of a investigator and has a trivia type mind when it comes to knowledge. Before he had his powers, he already had quick hands, that could perform card tricks, pick pockets, etc. Thanks for any help that you can give! P.S. As a follow-up to this post, I would love to start a topic on naming your most favorite (interesting) PC superhero!
  3. Hi all, I've posted on this forum a few times before. I have always wanted to participate in a superhero rpg group. However, with the recent health problems with the virus, and the need for social distancing, I would be interested in starting a play by post game. For those who are not familiar with this method, this is where the GM posts a scenario scene, and the players "react" to it claiming responsibility for the words and actions of their PCs only, with the GM still controlling for the most part the NPCs. Since it is not as fluid as a regular table top interaction, the players can create some of the story along with the GM, as opposed to simply just listening, but the GM still runs the story. In the past when I have tried this, I participated with a GM who had 6 individual players that were playing their own stories. I believe his goal was to intertwine the PCs together, but the game broke down before we got that far, so the PCs never even got to meet each other. I believe part of the problem was that he had players from all over the world, with some posting immediately, and others taking several days. The GM also took long periods of time to post, which made the whole thing fall through. I would love to try this method of play, however, I am not familiar with the Champions system very well. I am more comfortable with the ICONS Assembled Edition, which may actually be easier to play for a play by post game. Is anyone interested? Although, I would rather play, I know that usually someone doesn't post an idea without the expectation that they will probably have to run the game. I would be willing to run the game if there is some interest, however, I think in order to keep it successful, I may need to limit the players to only three or four at the most using the ICONS Assembled Edition. The beauty of that game system is that, heroes can be created on a random chart, fairly quickly, and the game is supposed to be very good for one shot adventures, especially. If players have a particular hero concept in mind or even a current character that they would like to modify for the game, that would be fine as well! I am looking to make this a street level campaign, although characters can have powers, but they would more resemble Batman (with gadgets) or Spider-man, rather than Superman. I am open to suggestions as well, since I am still developing the idea. I would welcome any input or interest. Thanks, Shadow7
