  1. Re: The Uber-Blast Games like CoH don't really follow the same dynamic as table-top RPGs. I've never seen a blaster in Champions cycle through his attack Multipower and wait for his slots to recharge. Obviously if such a high damage power was available to you, you'd use it as often as possible. In a more story-like setting, as often as possible is determined by plot and drama rather than a recharge mechanic. Granted, I've always wanted to run, or play in, a table-top game with powers such as these. I use the house rule I posted above for everygame use (for a superheroic setting), but
  2. Re: PROJECT: The Ultimate GM Screen I had no idea a GM screen like this existed! I'll be picking one up as soon as I can. As it is, I've been using a 1" 3 ring binder with clear pouches on the outside. In the pouches I typically have a 1 page player cheat sheet with a SPD chart, maneuvers, common equations made in combat (such as how to determine what DCV you hit after making a roll, instead of the standard method of determining what the target number is), and a map of the PC's base (it's for a Champions campaign). In the upcoming Star Hero game, I had planned on replacing the base map
  3. Re: Betterman Energy Balst I agree with PhilFleischmann on this. Just because it can't affect a character's flesh and blood body doesn't mean it can't affect the character. If the character is wearing armor made of the stuff, and and also has a FF, you can't blast the character or the armor without passing through the FF. Same as with any other Focus.
  4. Re: Betterman Energy Balst Um... how? You can't ignore a target's defenses unless the attack as AVLD or NND. The only other option is to force every defense other that ones made of Material X to take a Limitation "Not Versus Betterman EB".
  5. Re: Betterman Energy Balst AVLD or NND is necessary in case material X is wearing armor or has a force field that is not not made of material X. Otherwise you end up with Material X in a suit of full plate armor that might not take damage even thought it would take damage if it was just standing behind the suit of full plate armor.
  6. Re: A Bathroom Any other threads from a year and a half ago? This was a good one.
  7. Re: Favorite Abuse Since the Power'd be Persistant, being unconscious wouldn't turn it off. Through a Dispel, Suppress or Drain easily could. Of course, the major problem with having such Powers is that none of them can be movement or attack powers, since by necessity they'd have to be turned on and off a lot to be of any use.
  8. Everybody likes jokes. Here is a thread to post your favorite or most recently heard jokes. Here's one I heard today: A woman takes a lover home during the day while her husband is at work. Her 9-year old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them and hides in the bedroom closet to watch. The woman's husband also comes home. She puts her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already. The little boy says, "Dark in here." The man says, "Yes, it is." Boy - "I have a baseball." Man - "That's nice." Boy - "Want to buy it?" Man - "No, thanks." Boy - "My da
  9. Re: 5ER to 5E Page Numbering Shouldn't be too hard telling which of us the the evil twin.
  10. Re: 5ER to 5E Page Numbering Well damn! I couldn't sleep last night and copy/pasted to a .doc of my own and then converted it into a .pdf this morning. I just sent it off to Ben actually. (BTW GR, you and "Dust Angel" have been freaking me out with your juxtaposed avatars. I don't know who used to be who... were you "Ghost Angel" or "Dust Raven?") Only our moderators know...
  11. Re: 5ER to 5E Page Numbering Okay, seems like it was never done. So I'll do it. I'll be taking Zornwil's page numbering and turning it into a PDF. If anyone's interested, I'll be happy to share and will see if Ben can put it up in the Free Section or something.
  12. Re: THE ULTIMATE BRICK -- What Do *You* Want To See? That's a cool idea, and repped. I don't see it as being appropriate to all genres though. Most fitting in a Jacky Chanesque Ninja Hero game though.
