    I've played Champions since 1981. Is there anything else that really matters?

  1. Maybe, but the OP is the one who stated it isn't documented. 6E1 doesn't use that phrasing and it isn't covered in the SER description. Powers uses it without any additional SER definition. APG II references 6E1 as an example of this use of the SER, even though it isn't used that way in 6E1.
  2. So this "fact" isn't RAW, which automatically makes it a house-rule. That's perfectly acceptable, but shouldn't be presented as a fact. It also invalidates your original post. No one is confused about a rule that doesn't exist.
  3. The 1E Characteristic Drain used to last for 1 of the drainer's phases, but could be bought to last longer. The 2E and 3E Power Drain returned at a rate of 1 point per segment, and could be bought to delay the start of the return.
  4. I don't watch Walking Dead, so I don't know if her role there is large enough to be concerned about the split focus, and likely inevitable conflict between series scheduling. (Maybe not initially, but somewhere down the road.)
  5. As Steve noted in his answer, Drain is not based on the target's REC. The effects fade over time.
  6. 6E2 200 Real Weapon 6E2 210 Real Armor (a less-defined description than Real Weapon, to be sure) CC 113 has these as well, but taking out the toolkitting text lost the more explicit reference you are looking for. FHC 134 suffers the same loss of the toolkitting text.
  7. I haven't run any Christmas-themed adventures (that I remember), but I must say that I think all Christmas adventures should feature Foxbat.
  8. 3. No. RAW states you have to use the advantage, so it's always a triggered power. 3.1 Yes. That's what Naked Advantages are for. Steve just addressed this very thing with regards to a question on Barrier in the rules forum: http://www.herogames.com/forums/topic/94472-barrier-question/
  9. What they said, only with more colorful language.
  10. The duel between Inigo Montoya and the Dread Pirate Roberts in Princess Bride https://youtu.be/lC6dgtBU6Gs
  11. A few points to consider: That supplement was published in 2003 (and written in 2002). No matter how close it may have been at the time, 13 years have passed and Detroit has surely changed in that time. Detroit was blown up in the CU--at least a good chunk of it. Millennium City is a re-built Detroit, so I don't know how faithful to the old layout Darren even intended it to be. You should be able to do a rough comparison just by using Google and looking at the MC map. Darren's still around, so he may see this and provide more definitive answers.
  12. Then don't require them to take any. I wouldn't choose this route myself. The complications are back-story/personal traits that really can give the GM hooks for the character, and provide a starting point to help the players role-play the character. At the lower point levels for Heroic characters (especially if you start out even lower), the required complications total will be low (to non-existent). If you're worried about something like Hunted when you want the characters to be unknowns at the start of the campaign, just say, "No." Same for any Complication, Power, Talent, etc. that doesn't fit the campaign. Remember, anything that comes up during gameplay is just that. The characters don't magically get more points because they pissed off the King's Guard during an adventure and are now hunted on sight by them.
  13. There were a number of (unconfirmed) characters back at the end of October, first of November. A Klingon captain is one of them, although it was generally reported as there will be a Klingon captain, not that they would be the captain of the Discovery. Some people just automatically assume that any "captain" rumor/announcement is for the captain of the Discovery, and report it as so. Just as they initially did with Michelle Yeoh's character.
