  1. Strand

    HD Update

    I bought HD in January. I am not sure there can be a huge change to this in just a couple of months, but just in case I thought why not. But how do I update. It's not in the downloads area for me to just download. That's what I would expect. Though I could swear when I bought it it was there. I have not seen it since.
  2. The last time Star Trek was military in the strictest sense was Enterprise when they had the Macos (Marines) on board. I haven't watched Discovery, so I have no clue about that show. But TOS has had it's share of civilians, even a Cook. I do remember an episode where Kirk et. al. were served real food. Please correct me if I am wrong I may be remembering the movies.
  3. Thanks. I downloaded it for Open office and instead of changing anything I just go to File -> Reload to have it re-roll the dice. I know the easy way here is to just take what you have here and just fill out a blank spreadsheet for Body and Stun. I think there is an app for a phone that will do just that. But I just thought I could create this "simply" and if one of my friends said, "hey, can I have one of these?" I'd say "sure!" and I would just hit reload and have a different version. But this thing is getting cumbersome to create. I was on reddit Excel forum for
  4. [edit] I should say that our current D&D game will likely take the entire year to play before we play another game. The Plan is to play Champions after the D&D game. But given the state of the Vaccine roll out, who knows? You are right about sending the file via email. But I am assuming we will be playing in person by the time we start to play the Champions game. We should be at a table. But 12d6 is still a LOT of dice. I think the group would love the resurrection of that table we used way back when. All I need to do is find it.
  5. I have a 5th edition Excel Character sheet that is dated 2007 and I assume I got from here because there is a link to this site in it. As far as I can tell any other character sheets do not exist on the site before 2013. I have done a search for 5th edition character sheets and there is only one. The one that I have is basically a beta version and is superior to the one that is on the site (no offense to the person that uploaded it). But I am just wondering what happened to the file or files 6 years previous. Would the owner ask to have it removed? I was hoping to find an updated
  6. I'm guessing no one knows what I'm looking for. No problem. It was a long shot. I will see if I can find it elsewhere. Who knows, maybe I can find an old laptop and computer with Win95 (that should be old enough)
  7. I know this is late, but I come from a group of power games. (don't we all?) If our GM said we were having a Champions game, one would create an insane gadget pool. The rest would create their VPPs. I don't think it's only up to the Player to be responsible to the player. You can have a player that can make the perfect VPP. (I had friends make a character for me that had a Weather VPP and I had sticky notes for all the powers she could create) Where the REAL responsibility lies is the GM. If that person doesn't know the rules backwards and forwards, they might as well ban the Variable P
  8. I know this is a dead thread but I like beating a dead Corpse How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? The name Strand is a favorite Champions New Millennium Character. I saw a picture of Batman with the strands of his cape spreading outward and that was where I got the idea for the character. The character was a Martial Artist that the GM said I could use those Strands in the Martial Arts. The GM has always been forgiving and fun. What was the first tabletop RPG you played? First game was OD&D. It was back in the early 80's I would say around 1982.
  9. I don't have the documents. I moved around a lot in the 90s (and changed computers a lot too). I have the program, version 2.1 and wish there was a way to convert those character files. At least I have print outs.
  10. I'm sorry, I should have been more explicit in what I said. It wasn't directed at Hero Games. It was directed at the people installing the program and if they were still having issues installing it. I was pretty sure I had gotten it installed properly. Though I was not happy that I couldn't save character files to the Documents folder and realized later that it had to do with permissions. I've decided that I don't want to go into Terminal and try to change the permissions. Again, I will try to be better at explaining what I am saying. Sorry.
  11. The Amazon tablet uses it's own store. It does not have as many apps as an android tablet that has access to the Android store (though there is a hack that lets you get access to the Android store from an Amazon device. Note: the more memory you can get on the device the better. If it comes with 8gigs, even with a memory card, it's crap. If you get a tablet, make sure to get a good case. My mom has a 7" tablet and it is loaded up with games and has a large memory card loaded up too. Note the old saying "you get what you paid for".
  12. I don't know which game it started in, but quite some time ago one one of our GMs kept on saying the bad guys were in the Abandoned Warehouses. So we started calling it "The Abandoned Warehouse District". Of coarse there is the misspelling "The Abandoned Whorehouse District"
  13. I have a Mac Mini with Catalina. (Just for perspective) I too had problems (I wonder if you people have not solved this) I had this issue. I tried opening things from the download Folder...No. Other folder, No. So I moved it to the one place where things get installed. I put it in the Users folder under my name. I dropped Hero Designer in here. This is where the Music folder is at. From inside Hero Designer, I created a folder here and in THAT, I put any new characters that I created. I put pictures there too, since I could not access pictures from any other folder. (other than Hero Designer)
  14. We had a game way back when where the majority of the group was made of power gamers. The GM knew it. He worked around this "flaw". So one session he had the group make the best, most powerful characters they could within the parameters that were given. At the end of the night of character creation, he picked up those characters. (I'm not a power game, so my character was just so so) He announced. "These characters are your enemies for the next session. Please come to that game with your characters." Needless to say it was a slaughter. It was fun, but it was a slaughter.
  15. If you are playing an English game, play a character that is Spanish or German or Russian or just not English. Take any of the above words and translate them to something that sounds cool looking and sounding and make your character a little more different. Your character has a much older Fey name when you come from the OLD country.
