  1. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Ok, I looked over seven characters. Did I miss anyone?
  2. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I dont have my books at work. What does Defense Maneuver I do again? I wont revist the disads, as the are mostly the same. The rest of it looks fine.
  3. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central (slapps head) Its been a long time since I picked up a deck. Ah! Put that in disad on your next revision: No Fine sense of touch Take off the rep and make Social Limitation: Fear of Commitment (Frequently, Minor) or (Occasion, Major). Code vs Killing and Protect the "whatever" are seperate. Batman has a code vs killing, but Upholds Justice is how he persues his carrer. You wont kill great, but it is not the same as protect the weak, protect the innocent, defend the public trust, etc. You
  4. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Lets starts at the disads: You only have 135 points. Do you want me to throw some Disad ideas your way? There is a 1 point perk for Sentry Initative Clearance. Without it you can't walk into Sentry Central at all. You would have it on your secret id, of course. You want in? You have a LOT of skills, but did you invent anything. Did you make your equipment or did someone else? Are you just procuring other equipment thru channels? I recommend Inventor, 8- (at least). Thoughts?

  6. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Your choice about where you want to live. 1/2 of the population lifes in Center City. Ok, starting with Disads: Distinctive Features: Always Shows Up In Tarot Divinations as THE WARD, Arcana II (Not Concealable; Noticed and Recognizable; Detectable Only By Small Group) - Just Tarot Divinations is a small group within Divination, which is a small gorup unto itself. I would say shows up at The Ward on any Divination. I know The Ward is a card in a Tarot deck, but its not that simple... the Death card does not mean Death (just
  7. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central You have 35 points of watched/hunteds. To make this mesh, do you mind if I filled with the 35 points and tell you how it comes out? I think a single 25 point is pretty harsh:eek: I would like for the characters to have a few common hunteds (but not all) to give common enemies. Nothing bring people together more than a common foe. You took 5 points for poor and it looks like you bought off 5 points of disads. Now that you have a secret id, what about taking a single DNPC? Besides that, everything looks dandy.
  8. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Ok, to start I really like the new background. It defines with a lot more detail. I can really see the motivations of the man now. Starting with Disads: At first you were a Chinese dissident. The you left that profession and became the head of a local crime syndicate. You are now an escaped prisoner, but are you political or criminal, or both? When you had your position, did anyone from the CIA ask you to do favors for them? What about someone with the Japanese Intelligence? What impact do you seeing being an escape
  9. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I have seven submission to look over and I KNOW I will not be able to get to all of the today. I have been looking over characters pretty quickly to try and answer everyone I can. With that in mind, I asked Fed early on to double check my il/logic. I think more than a few points have been made because of it. Full time job, wife and kids, pain from surgery and pain meds do not necessarilly a good fit make for looking over a LOT of character submission. I wanted everyone to know that "Thebes" has offically "started" with character

  11. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Fed and I talked over Land Line a few minutes ago. As I am still on drugs some of my critical thinking skills don't match as well as they could. My creative skills are on the rise of late though... these dreams are something else:sneaky: All that said, I give Fed's opinion a HUGE amount of weight. He has been gaming Champions while I was in the Army. AND he has had a lot more face to face gaming time in the last fifteen years (I can measure mine in days, really). I asked him to look over the character (he looks them all
  12. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Let me look over your re-submission tomorrow. I will get back to you. Ah, something useful! Sounds good. We have a lot of roleplaying opportunities. I don't want any player to be left out because they put all their points in PS: Painter (Gaming Minatures), KS: RPG and KS: Fantasy Novels. I mean, these are all great skills (chuckes at self) but PS: Forensic Technician, KS: Viral Code, KS: Hacker would be better.
  13. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I have all the characters saved at the office (gasp!) I will look it over tomorrow.
  14. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Ok, since I did not have a background and you were going at it again I was not sure if it was the same person. After the bounty put Chinese Government please, just for a flag for me. As we move toward finalizing the character we will get into specifics. Thats cool. I just need something to fill in the blanks in the .hdc file. You want to take a full dodge then I cool with the DCV. It is a dodge after all.
  15. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central We have another 6 SPD, 26 Dex semi martial artist who has 20/20 defenses. Let FED take a look and we will see. I would not worry about the hunteds to much. I like to fill those in so they make sense with the campaign. For instance, there are a few underworld organizations that have influence in the area: Tong, Dealer, Street Gangs, and Native American. So, picking the Italian Mob or the Columbian Crime Syndicate would not really fit Thebes. As far as organizations go, any of the public known ones that interac
  16. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Don't worry about stepping on to many peoples toes. Some of it will get vetted with the selections. However, someone who sticks to an area of speciality has a better chance of being selected than someone who is all over (all other things being equal). Starting at disads: Distinctive Feature: Glowing Tatoo - if all you have to do it wear a high collar, then it is Easily concealable. Convicted Felon is not a reputation, it is a social limiation. 8- means like 1/4 of the population knows you are a convicted felon. Try
  17. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central
  18. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central nothing really to say here. You dont have any "heroic" codes. Protect the Innocent, Code vs. Killing, Seek Justice, etc. You dont even have some of the less heroic ones like adventurer, thrill seeker, etc. As you said you want to be a role model, but the WHY be a super still exists. To done a costume and protect the public trust has to have a why, or at the first sign of trouble you would stop. "Man I love being a super. Oh, Dr. D has kidnapped Mom. Either I stop being a super or she sleeps with the fishes. Well.. were t
  19. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central 7 Speed and 30 Defenses. WAY, way beyond the campaign set limits. Read this please. You have power defense, mental defense and life support. I allow one special defense without question. Second one is a maybe. Third is probably going to be a no-go. I can see power defense. I don't see mental defense. I could see some life support: like you can take all the extreme environments and hold your breath a long time. Longevity, no need to eat or sleep... I would drop those. Hits like a truck... why not just buy up the
  20. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I am going to ask FED to look into the Characteristic and DC level. 6 SPD, 29 DEX, 10 DC attack (but martial arts) with 20 (14 reg and 6 combat luck) Defenses. Considering I am still on drugs (pain meds) I want a second opinion on them. Everything looks ok from here... the defense may be a bit too high. Loose the Dark Secret: Sentry Initative. It is currently being hailed as a good thing by the local populace and is a strong point for most of the local political candidates. We will keep it as a background point and if th
  21. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I am going to start with the disads and work my way around: 1. Psychological Limitation: reluctant to kill (Common, Total) - so, you WONT kill. I am reluctant to buy gas at $3.00 a gallon, but if I cant find it cheaper... I buy $3.00 gas. If you wont kill then Code vs. killing (Common, Total) is more my style. 2. Watched: Mumbai underworld 8- (As Pow, PC has a Public ID or is otherwise very easy to find, Watching). This is a zero point limitation as they have a limited geographic area (they are half a world away). Now, if you
  22. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Resend this as a .hdc please. All I have to do is load the file and start checking. I dont want to have to check the math on each power, stat, whatnot and I don't have time to re-type. Now if you DONT have the ability to send it as an hdc then I will make one the first time and we will go from there.
  23. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I will try and look this one over today as well.
  24. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I wanted a name that really synched into the area. Since Memphis is nearby, and there is this BIG river... I really struggled with the campaign location. I wanted to put in in the NE on a bay in Washington State, but we already have campaign cities in Silverstone, CO and Bayport, CA. I did not want one on the southern coast and central Texas is out too. That left me with the central US or the East Coast. I did not want the East Coast (to much real world history already there). So, I decided on a river city and bingo. We
  25. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I will try to look yours over today as well. BTW, nice pic!
