  1. What do "veteran officers" actually do most of the time? How often do they get into violent conflict situations, as opposed to how much of their time is spent doing entirely routine things? Most police officers aren't Special Forces grade combatants. Digression: many years ago I worked as a civilian computer programmer for a law enforcement agency. We had police officers attached to us to work as intermediaries between us civilians and the people out doing the job (and, in some cases taking the bribes - but that's another story). Anyway, at lunchtime one day, one of
  2. That depends on which substance they were using.
  3. Overwhelmingly, superheroes do work outside the system. That's what all the masks and stuff are about. Otherwise they would be cops - or super-soldiers.
  4. Mulraven House is a location mentioned in DEMON - Servants of Darkness. It's described as "a mansion built by Elisha Mulraven, the Beggar King of London, after he fled England in 1843". Sometime after that it came into the possession of Prince Blackwell, one of the identities of the Edomite. It's located in Canberra, Australia. What is interesting is that the city of Canberra didn't exist in 1843. It was founded and formally named in 1913. There were Real World(tm) buildings in the area before then, some of which have been preserved. Clearly, in the Champion
  5. Nice. I may actually have a use for this character. I might drop the UNTIL connection, and put him in Nouvelle-Calédonie - on the other side of the Coral Sea from Australia.
  6. The Australian government couldn't organize a p*ss-up in a brewery. Scott Morrison abandons target to have all Australians vaccinated against COVID-19 by the end of the year
  7. I'm thinking that Doctor Panic (Peter Panich) will probably team up with Black Opal. In fact, they might recruit other villains.... The Min Min lights will definitely make an appearance, since Min Min is relatively(!) near Winton.
  8. Thinking about Seeker - he appeared on a lot of covers back in the day. Clearly artists liked drawing him. I wonder if it was a mistake dropping him.
  9. She's also a villain.
  10. Unfortunately my copy of Strike Force is somewhere in a pile of books. The characters created by the original players have largely been mangled in the comic books. The example characters from the various editions are rather meh. There were a couple of interesting characters in Champions Worldwide, but the fact that I can't name them rules them out as iconic to me. Can't really think of any, to be honest. No doubt someone will come to mind eventually.
  11. Obviously not, but Champions is not an incel revenge fantasy support group. Tone matters.
  12. This is yet another thing I would let a character have for free (in a developed country, etc).
  13. I don't do silly adventures, but my default villains, and thus the scenarios they appear in, are a bit silly. The nefarious Doctor Nefarious is always up to something nefarious. It usually involves a McGuffin and/or a DNPC. The Red Herring is the villain you run into by accident when you take a wrong turn while investigating the latest plot of Dr Nefarious. Just yesterday, I invented the mysterious Rando the (haven't quite found a suitable synonym for Weird). He's that weird guy you run into and wish would go away. Except he has magic.
  14. In general, I deal with "representation" as being a matter for heroes, not villains. It's like this: a bunch of teenage boys are sitting around imagining punching women. Is that our game? It's OK to punch Nazis. Anything else works according to that framework. Back from that, WITCH was a male interpretation of 2nd wave feminism. Back in the day there was in fact a group called the Women's International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell. On the other hand, SCUM (the Society for Cutting Up Men) was a mix of an actual document and a male editor making up the acronym.
