  1. Re: Elemental benders (Avatar) Here's my pass at Toph. To mimic the way the benders' abilities seem to be bound to their Martial Art, I gave her MA with Damage Classes bought Requires Earth & Stone. (I apologize in advance that I only have HD 2.02)

    Witch Way

    Re: Witch Way The Triad (from Venture Bros.) should definitely live there.
  3. Re: Multitarget Abilities Another way to go might be to use Followers. Write up each Eye Stalk as a Follower with its own DEX / SPD & Attack Power (or MP). This also has the bonus effect of allowing the players to attack each eye stalk, disabling them one at a time. I'd actually like to see this monster once you get it up and running.
  4. Re: Who's Who on the Champions Online forums? I'm on as Brawl on the CO forums. Hope to see you all in Millenium City next year!
  5. Re: Code vs Killing, in your group? I agree with most of what has come before. I have noticed in our games that the PCs rarely if ever pull punches against known supervillains. They might pull punches against agents and thugs, but if Ankylosaur shows up (no matter what power level the PCs are) he can expect to get levelled with a full power shot. Basically, the mentality seems to be that he is a supervillain and as such the gloves are off automatically. We have never really penalized anyone for it or played up the fact that many gadget-using villains have been knocked into comas. Is this isolated to our games?
  6. Re: Chinese Zodiac Team Here is some info I pulled off the web, which may not help with Powers so much, but should help with fleshing out the characters a bit (Psych Lim's and such) Rat are noted for their charm and attraction for the opposite sex. They work hard to achieve their goals, acquire possessions, and are likely to be perfectionists. They are basically thrifty with money. Rat people are easily angered and love to gossip. Their ambitions are big, and they are usually very successful. Ox are patient, speak little, and inspire confidence in others. They tend, however, to be eccentric, and bigoted, and they anger easily. They have fierce tempers and although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent. Ox people are mentally and physically alert. Generally easy-going, they can be remarkably stubborn, and they hate to fail or be opposed. Tiger people are sensitive, given to deep thinking, capable of great sympathy. They can be extremely short-tempered, however. Other people have great respect for them, but sometimes tiger people come into conflict with older people or those in authority. sometimes Tiger people cannot make up their minds, which can result in a poor, hasty decision or a sound decision arrived at too late. They are suspicious of others, but they are courageous and powerful. Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make good gamblers for they have the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing. However, they seldom gamble, as they are conservative and wise. Dragon are healthy, energetic, excitable, short-tempered, and stubborn. They are also honest, sensitive, brave, and they inspire confidence and trust. Dragon people are the most eccentric of any in the eastern zodiac. Snake are deep. They say little and possess great wisdom. They never have to worry about money; they are financially fortunate. Snake people are often quite vain, selfish, and a bit stingy. Yet they have tremendous sympathy for others and try to help those less fortunate. Snake people tend to overdo, since they have doubts about other people's judgment and prefer to rely on themselves. They are determined in whatever they do and hate to fail. Although calm on the surface, they are intense and passionate. Snake people are usually good-looking and sometimes have marital problems because they are fickle. Horse are popular. They are cheerful, skillful with money, and perceptive, although they sometimes talk too much. The are wise, talented, good with their hands, and sometimes have a weakness for members of the opposite sex. They are impatient and hot-blooded about everything except their daily work. They like entertainment and large crowds. They are very independent and rarely listen to advice. Ram are elegant and highly accomplished in the arts. They seem to be, at first glance, better off than those born in the zodiac's other years. But ram year people are often shy, pessimistic, and puzzled about life. They are usually deeply religious, yet timid by nature. Sometimes clumsy in speech, they are always passionate about what they do and what they believe in. Ram people never have to worry about having the best in life for their abilities make money for them, and they are able to enjoy the creature comforts that they like. Ram people are wise, gentle, and compassionate. Monkey are the erratic geniuses of the cycle. Clever, skillful, and flexible, they are remarkably inventive and original and can solve the most difficult problems with ease. There are few fields in which Monkey people wouldn't be successful but they have a disconcerting habit of being too agreeable. They want to do things now, and if they cannot get started immediately, they become discouraged and sometimes leave their projects. Although good at making decisions, they tend to look down on others. Having common sense, Monkey people have a deep desire for knowledge and have excellent memories. Monkey people are strong willed but their anger cools quickly. Rooster are deep thinkers, capable, and talented. They like to be busy and are devoted beyond their capabilities and are deeply disappointed if they fail. People born in the Rooster Year are often a bit eccentric, and often have rather difficult relationship with others. They always think they are right and usually are! They frequently are loners and though they give the outward impression of being adventurous, they are timid. Rooster people¡¦s emotions like their fortunes, swing very high to very low. They can be selfish and too outspoken, but are always interesting and can be extremely brave. Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They have a deep sense of loyalty, are honest, and inspire other people¡¦s confidence because they know how to keep secrets. But Dog People are somewhat selfish, terribly stubborn, and eccentric. They care little for wealth, yet somehow always seem to have money. They can be cold emotionally and sometimes distant at parties. They can find fault with many things and are noted for their sharp tongues. Dog people make good leaders. Boar are chivalrous and gallant. Whatever they do, they do with all their strength. For Boar Year people, there is no left or right and there is no retreat. They have tremendous fortitude and great honesty. They don't make many friends but they make them for life, and anyone having a Boar Year friend is fortunate for they are extremely loyal. They don't talk much but have a great thirst for knowledge. They study a great deal and are generally well informed. Boar people are quick tempered, yet they hate arguments and quarreling. They are kind to their loved ones. No matter how bad problems seem to be, Boar people try to work them out, honestly if sometimes impulsively. Sounds like the group you have envisioned so far looks good. As far as the ones you have yet to fill (Ox, Tiger, Snake, Horse, Dog and Boar), I would suggest... Ox - Sumo type Brick with the KB Res Hermit mentioned Tiger - Invisibility and Tiger Style Kung-Fu is appropriate here Snake - Former VIPER mystic - I don't have my VIPER book here to cite the name of that group - (possibly turned COIL agent if you've run that adventure) Horse - Speedster maybe? Dog - Team Leader, I second Oddhat's Enhanced Senses plus make him dull the senses of others (flash attacks, maybe darkness) Boar - I think this is your Move Through Specialist with a high CON and REC. He stuns (or KO's) both his opponent and himself when he plows into them, but he gets back up faster. Hope that helps.

    Re: x3 Whedon is doing something similar in his Astonishing X-Men run as well. This is also where "The Cure" storyline used in X3 comes from. I also agree that my fave X-Man is Scott (or Hank with many close seconds) and the least tolerable X-Man is Wolverine (by a landslide). Speaking of Hank, I really liked the way Kelsey Grammer portrayed him in the movie. In the scene where he and Wolverine double team Magneto (I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't seen it), I loved the way Kelsey shows the anguish/disgust over what he's just done. Even though the camera isn't focused on him at the time, his performance shows through. If you don't see this movie in Widescreen or in a theater, you may not see it as it will probably be cut to fit a TV screen.
  8. Re: Is it just me? (Or does this mini look like Ripper?) Here's a link to the Urban Mammoth site where they sell this mini and other VOID stuff http://www.urbanmammoth.co.uk/acatalog/Syntha_Miniatures.html There is another Hercules biomech that looks a lil more like Ripper and a Grav Bike that could easily be used for a VIPER Hover Bike. I really wish we had some pre-painted plastic Champions minis of our very own, like nolgroth I'm no fan of hobbying miniatures to use them in my games.
  9. Re: Hero and Villain Idea And of course they could have a child. Centigrade master of temperature control! I actually really like this idea (your original idea above not my feeble attempt at humor), it would be great in a group of die hard RPers.
  10. Re: What power would I use to represent this?
  11. Re: What power would I use to represent this? Buy it as Tunneling since you only want to use it against inanimate objects anyway. Maybe with a Full Move Lim on it.
  12. Re: Need help with building Psiwhips When I get home, I can work it out on HD and post it for you, but basically the whips would be stretching with a no range offensive damage shield built in so that anyone touched (grabbed, hit, etc) would also take the Damage Shield damage which in this case is an Ego Attack. You would roll to hit against DCV with the stretching and if you hit the Ego Attack damage would just happen without an ECV attack roll. Also if you buy it as Stretching, and someone severed the "lashes" it would be a normal attack aginst your character, so the more powerful the attack, the more damage you would take.
  13. Re: One-Trick Pony Campaigns When I first looked at this thread it made me think of a Dark Champions Campaign in which the characters are limited to a single 45 AP Power to accentuate their Skills and Talents. I still think this could be cool to do. Along the lines of a Bloodline of OTPs I would think of more of a Modern HERO type of game with a rival family / organization that the PCs would be working against. The vast majority of combats would be between the PCs and skilled normal agents or against the creatures / creations spawned by the rival in their bid to take over the world / undermine the PC family. I may steal this idea...thanks
  14. Re: Need help with building Psiwhips You can use Mental Powers with the No Range Lim (which should be worth more on a power with No Range Mod) and an offensive Damage Shield. I would think that if these "lashes" were severed that you would experience some type of psychic feedback.

    Iron-Man Movie!

    Re: Iron-Man Movie! I would really like to see a villain that destroys tech as the villain, maybe Malleon (a relatively recent and short lived IM villain), but definitely something that shows how Tony Stark saves the day, not the armor. Perhaps something Tony created long ago that AIM got ahold of and mutated / evolved into a sentient techno-virus. Hell, maybe in the Marvel movie-verse Tony Stark creates Ultron instead of Hank Pym (pretty unlikely we're getting a Hank Pym or Avengers movie anyway). Doesn't look like Cruise is involved ATM, but you never know. Favereau has solicited feedback from the fans and maybe he will check here (once I include a link to this thread in the myspace blog) on who he should cast for the lead as well as anything we would like / dislike seeing in the film. This thing is still in the very early stages and as others have said he is definitely a fanboy of the material. People have suggested everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio to Oded Fehr to John Stamos to play Tony. I'm curious what you guys think. Glad to hear that some of you guys are excited about this film too. I will try to keep the thread updated if I read more.
