    I've played Champions since 1981. Is there anything else that really matters?
  1. Exactly this. I felt the same about Jar Jar Abrams helming anything with the words "Star Trek" in the title.
  2. Interesting read (obviously I can't verify this personally): http://www.vulture.com/2016/08/this-open-letter-annihilates-warner-bros-execs.html
  3. (Sorry, no link) There's a petition at change.org to shut down rotten tomatoes because of all the bad reviews of the movie.
  4. I think this is an admin setting--which appears to be all-or-nothing for all posts containing an attachment or from shared media.
  5. Interesting read that covers where the new shows are: http://www.ew.com/article/2015/11/27/deathwatch-renewed-canceled Given those numbers, Supergirl still isn't, "near the bottom." At least not yet.
  6. Or, as from sources (since I don't speak Latin myself) -- natale domini. Natale is Christmas (likely derived from natal since both involve birthday).
  7. Depending on your interpretation, that might fit, although not literally. Natasha <- Natalia <- Natalie -- which apparently comes from the Latin for "Christmas Day". Nathaniel <- Nathanael -- Hebrew for "God has given".
  8. I'm not particularly new either (and I lurked for a long time before I signed up here). How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? My name is my name. What was the first tabletop RPG you played? Dungeons and Dragons Basic Set (1977) What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? Dungeons and Dragons Basic Set (1977) What are you currently playing/GMing? I play and GM Champions.
  9. Yes, Raccoon was the man. Panda and Raccoon were married.
  10. Don't walk into the light Steve! Some of us want you to finish the book. Besides, I've watched enough Wile E. Coyote to know it's really a speeding train. Seriously, it's good to hear that you're able to get back to this.
  11. Which is a nice house rule (see 6E1 319). This is also a great demonstration of why all of the characters posted on the forums (or elsewhere) by various folks can't just be taken at face value. We always need to evaluate them for our particular game. There are far too many unstated assumptions (house rules, grandfathered rules from previous editions, campaign limits, etc.) to just take a character and use it without surprise. That doesn't make the characters wrong, just built for a specific use case. Caveat Emptor. You get what you pay for. Insert appropriate saying here.
  12. Technically true. Yes. There is no "free" base for Mental Defense (5E and below). If you bought Mental Defense, you got to add your EGO/5 (5ER 200). Starting in 6E, there are no free points based on your EGO if you buy Mental Defense.
  13. Absolutely. It also follows that those who've played the longest are smarter than those who took longer to realize the greatness of the system.
