  1. I am thinking about building a character who has a dimensional vortex inside him feeding him energy. REC 30. I would like to make him resistant to teleport by others due to vortex. and Resistant to trans-dimensional powers( powers bought with the trans-dimensional advantage or effect definiton). How would you build this? This is for 5E
  2. I am thinking of making a character with variety of powers none of them POWERFUL. The character was a liberal arts major in college and a slacker. What powers would you give them? EDIT: This is actually for a player character in my Post Apocalypse Campaign: Atomic Twilight. He will be finding out about his various powers over time. at the start of the game no one has powers. they will get them in game. I originally posted this before I heard back as to whether he would go for this.
  3. Re: Cramming: A real Life explanation! This would also be a great way to explain a weird mental defense. Yes, you can read his mind but what you find makes absolutely no sense! I mean, the Incredible Hulk on an exercise bike? what does that mean? and so forth ans so on. However, the character knows exactly what each weird thing means.
  4. Here is how Cramming Skill really works: Cramming explained AND How to do it! It is a long article.
  5. Re: Activating Power Sets I would recommend a framework. with a framework, Each "set" would be one slot and you would put lockout on each slot. you would only be using the powers in that slot. Then put a limitation on the entire multipower requires a skill roll to change slots..
  6. Doomsday how BP gulf disaster may have triggered a world killing event Now couple that with the Russian idea to Nuke the wellhead. Not only do you have poison gases and tidal waves to worry about, you would also have radioactive fallout on a scale never seen in millions of years. The complete gulf area would be completely cleared of life. You would have extreme Global warming that would make this year look like winter. The tidal waves would possibly reach Europe and Africa. It might even set off the Madrid fault line causing a massive Earthquake in the Midwest. This would make a great Post Apocalypse campaign.
  7. Re: Record-able Mind Control You know, this power would explain the popularity of Justin Bieber. He must have it.
  8. You have been away from earth on a mission to another star system. When you return you are hailed by the International Space Station. They tell they have been unable to reach anyone on Earth for 2 weeks. And their supplies are running very low. There are no lights on the night-side of the earth. You are also unable to pickup any transmissions from earth. When you get down to (Campaign City) you find NO ONE!. There are no people any where! From what you can piece together, it is as if every Sentient being vanished about 2 weeks ago. (this includes Mechanon). There does not appear to have been any warning. WWYCD?
  9. Re: How to do it? - Transformer Pretender Shell I would suggest a limited form of duplication. with the second form having slightly different abilities.
  10. Re: The Snatcher Advantage from GURPS This sounds just like the way that The Harbinger of Justice summons his guns. I think that would be a great place to start.
  11. Re: TK Throw Things I would say give him a RKA with autofire and penetrating. Keep the dice low and increase the stun multiplier. The reason to keep the dice low is each item isn't going to do much damage by itself. And to avoid overpowering the character.
  12. Re: Super Zeroes Don't Tase Me Man! He has the amazing ability to teleport in front of somebody who is about to be tased and take the hit for them, no matter the distance or language. This only happens when someone who is about to be tased utters the iconic phrase "Don't Tase Me Man!" However he has no special defenses versus the Taser. He has come to hate being tased.
  13. Re: Taranis-The British plane that deserves to be in a comic book Also, remember that the communication satellite system the British has for it's military is called SkyNet! Lets see: highly advanced computer system .........check! robots with guns...................................check! Autonomous flying weapons platforms...check! Are we sure Terminators are only in the movies? Or are they taking over very quietly?

LYNCH" (Contact has access to major institutions) 11- 7 Fringe Benefit: Security Clearance, Top Man 3 Access Talents 3 Bump Of Direction Height: 1.87 m Hair: Brown Weight: 115.00 kg Eyes: blue Appearance: The power armor is a mostly midnight blue Crystalline suit. It looks like a 6'6" alien. There is something about it that is just 'wrong' somehow. Quote: Background: Jeweled Unhuman Living Entity John is a Top Man Scientist for the Government. He also is a Professor at(insert University). His lab assistant, Julie, was a genius. He could only keep up with her research due to his years of knowledge. They were working on a way to make a smart material that could go from liquid to solid in an instant. During an important part of an experiment he was called away by the Government to analyze some alien material. While he was gone, Julie made a break through with the material they were using, a dark blue crystalline matrix. She found out the material could be controlled by thought. She stored a copy of the discovery in a special folder on the server that she and John used for notes when he had to be out of the lab. While she was testing the material while wearing the cerebral enhancer, a High Tech Villain group attacked the lab to steal the research. During the fight, she gets hit with a massive charge of electricity, causing the cerebral enhancer to overload and transfer her mind into the crystalline matrix and kills her body. It also fries all the computers in the lab, erasing all of their notes. The villains leave as what they came to steal has been "destroyed". 2 weeks later John returns from 'vacation'. He finds out about the attack and death of his lab assistant. He checks the lab and finds the blue liquid crystal they were using has solidified into a lump of crystal. He is told that due to the attack and near destruction of his lab during his "absence", it will be a couple of months before he can do any more research. He checks his email finds one from Julie telling him to check the folder, she discovered something. With her notes, he is able to recreate the cerebral enhancer and control the crystal. During his time off, he analyzes the material as something has changed about it. He discovers it has the ability to focus or diffuse light. He decides to use the material to make a suit of power armor to hunt down the villains and bring them to justice. To hide his appearance, he has the suit look like a monstrous crystalline Alien. He starts researching how to be a detective. This has caused his science skills to drop as he is not maintaining them as well as he used to. In testing the suit, he starts to suffer from occasional black outs. He wakes up in weird places, in the suit and feels invigorated. During his blackouts is when Julie takes over. She has been trying to figure out where she is. Due to the sensory abilities of the material, she is seeing the world very differently than she did before. She is unaware she is dead and she is on earth. She thinks she is on an alien world. Powers/Tactics: The suit gives him control of light. So far he has figured out how to use the sensory abilities of the material. He has figured out that the material makes a great crystal to focus light thru. He has created a simple laser blast, a very focused laser blast that can cut thru armor and the ability to flash someone by shining it into their eyes. He recently discovered a way to fly in the armor by manipulating the magnetic field of the Earth. The cerebral enhancer has the side effect of improving his hand eye coordination and balance, as well as speeding up his perceptual speed. Due to the base crystalline matrix of the material, it is very strong. Using this, he is able to lift much heavier objects than he originally could.
  15. Re: Code vs Killing, but Gods a little fuzzy about kneecaps. This topic is why I like the Palladium Alignment system. It handles these subjects much better.
