  1. I completely agree. I'm surprised you haven't mentioned "I've Got a Brand New Combine Harvester" yet.
  2. One question: Chicago is home to skycrappers. What is a skycrapper? They sound... unpleasant. I'd just like to point out that a hollow earth that is really a giant computer, with the occasional, hidden alien hitchhiker linving among humankind is a great tradition that should be memorialized and is a much better option than snakemen.
  3. I've not read the silver age space age stuff. But I get the idea that the characters are all actually quite powerful. Isn't Superboy one of the... um, I don't know the team name. But they get name dropped on the forum quite regularly... I'm certain someone with a better knowledge of Silver Age DC will chime in with the correct name of the silver age, teen, space, team I am thinking of. There's also Invincible. Pretty powerful teen there. I guess my point is they can be powerful. At the very least they need some way of getting around the galaxy in a hurry and surviving in space. Okay, not that expensive in points but these things add up. Maybe not as powerful as the full on Galactic Heroes, but more powerful than the level suggested in Teen Heroes. I gotta say I think the defining point of teen heroes is not the power level. It's the drama. Teen drama revolves around teen issues. Dating. Mom and Dad just don't understand you (Cue Lumpy Space Princess: " My parents are horrible idiots.") School is stressful. Peer Pressure. ("Be a hero, say "No!" to Pompalphoosian Pleasure Pops.") It could be funny to be the most powerful hero in the galaxy, but still be running scared of the school principal because you don't want to get banned from Prom.
  4. I always thought Multiple Attacks had to be used on multiple targets... I guess this is not the case.
  5. I dunno. I reckon lawyers would give anyone indigestion.
  6. For a home game I have no problems using Disney characters. I'd never be mad enough to publish something with Disney IP. That'd be crazy. Brangomar vs. Maleficent requires Maleficent to be real in the CU. Hmmm. That's not a "no." That's a "need to think about that." I do like the idea that she starts giving life to the various animated characters and sets them on the heroes.
  7. Good suggestions, LL. Now I want to have Brangomar get involved with actual Disney IP somehow. I mean, she is a villain after all, she wouldn't respect IP even if she can understand the concept of "owning ideas." Maybe she goes around renaming the dwarfs. Or steals the songs from all the Disney movies. Literally, no one can sing them any more. Or maybe she uses some her dragon gold to buy herself a place on the board of directors at Disney. Then... something, something, evil plan. Gonna have to workshop this one a bit more.
  8. I like Brangomar. Now I want to run a game where I can work her in. Complete with all the classic Disney motifs. Hmmm. The question is, where in the Disney oeuvre do I draw the line? Do I include the Disney renaissance? Are Lion King and Aladdin too radically different from the classic tropes, or perhaps just too recent, for them to be something that effects Brangomar? Also, does Brangomar break out into spontaneous song? Or is it just the princes and princesses who do that?
  9. Namor is also an arrogant douche bag. Don't get me wrong, I consider this a plus. He's definitely in my top 10 favourite supers types.
  10. I like it. I like that it's generic. I like that page 3 is basically a combat cheat sheet. I'll happily use it. Personally I'd take off the space you've allowed for costs to be recorded. I consider that all part of character design and I don't see a need for it on a play sheet. But I suspect I'm in a minority on this point.
  11. @Trechiron10 Thanks! That was very informative. Some very useful ideas.
  12. I don't know what any of these things are. Is it possible to have a quick, explanatory guide for newbie? 🙂
  13. The food was cold, the drinks were few, and the people were many. It was everything I expected and less.
  14. Oooh. Evidence based argument; I like it.
