  2. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Why go the easy route with being turned in and found not guilty? Say he was found guily and did time. If would actually using your powers over here, do something big you usual get away with overseas and get away with it once or twice. Then get cocky and get caught by the Ministry of Justice. Maybe your plans went so awry you were almost killed, but were saved by one of them (Plasma Core very likely). You did your time in PIT and are honestly reformed. Lets say you did 12 years making big rocks, much smaller rocks You get o
  3. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Some of the knowledge is passed down by oral tradition and some comes with the mantle itself. So, if you are the apprentice then you have had sufficient training beforehand to know what is knowing on. You will have to take scholar and about 4 skills. If you just take the mantle you get power without insight (Greatest American Hero anyone). However, the Mantle holds something of past Ravens, so you do get some insight. Warpath is a Native American villian organization. Raven worked with them AND the Ministry of Justice.
  4. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central The entire Ministry of Justice is dead. They died about 10 years ago and there are now statues of them as a memorial. So, playing one of them is pretty much out. There is a hero/villian known as "The Raven". She was a mystically based oracle of sorts. She did have flight and sonic'ish powers, and she is dead. However, she has been around for a LONG darn time, she has Serial Immortality. She was training an apprentice but no one else knew it. It was assumed she died in the Battle for Center City (and she did). However,
  5. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I will let him post his character. He is playing a Energy Projector (of sorts).
  6. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I posted some dirt about Thebes earlier in the thread. Where Silverstone is a "new" hero city, Thebes is rife with past history. A large section of the city was actually destroyed (Battle of Center City) by Mechanix and the last super group that defended it (The Ministry of Justice) is dead. Take a gander back there in the thread. I am not giving it all away, but this city is going to have a lot of black and white contrasts between the haves and have nots, etc. Lots of history and existing villians for the characters to si
  7. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Right now the Catalyst universe is hero/villian light. The only real areas of activity are the players cities with existing groups (just in the US... not going to even think about anywhere else). So, Guardian is going to have to be a solo player. From prior posts all I knew was Guardian got owned by Lord Havoc, no background, nada. Just hey, your dead. As far as getting tricked by others, it would not be like that. Just the regular people in his life (and anyone else who knows him) are going to come looking eventually. Trying
  8. Re: Modeling a CoH/CoV character in the Hero System I think the feel for the environment is the key, mechanical conversion = yuck. BTW, Fedfensor and I still game together on CoH/CoV. Not as much recently are we are planning the Catalyst games for Champions. But, the twice a month TF is still a staple
  9. Re: Modeling a CoH/CoV character in the Hero System Its a cute idea, but one I would do begin to undertake. Why? First... Lets assume you use the brawl index and get ALL the powers converted. Then, they pull an Issue 3 (Enhancement Diversification) on you OR they re-set the powerlevels (like every Issue), etc. You will have a TON of work to rework. Second... CoH/CoV has to take in standard Archtypes to balance group play in an MMO world. Champions has no such limitation. Get one empath healer and a standard group would be gold. Next, some of the points for powers goe

    Re: Control Machines Nice way to do it. I like the NND stun option, very creative.

  13. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central OK, lets say to take the suit from the Guardsman, you can replace him... but I need ALL your hunted disads, and probably a few others. Here is what I mean... 1. If the bad guy (Lord Havoc) was able to kill a existing known super with a rep, what chance to do have as a green super. "Lord Havoc" is going to be a more powerful who wants to kill you. I mean, if he killed the last guy, why would he NOT want to kill you. If he figures out that you are NOT Guardsman, then it would probably be even worse. You did pay for Dark Secre
  14. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Ok going to tackle this from the bottom of the sheet up. Do you want to get your suit from: 1. A hero who "dies" at your feet 2. A gift from ? 3. You found it in (location unknown). I ask because this is critical (really). You suit will come from National Defense, a protege of National Guard. National Guard is dead (he died defending Center City), the entire Ministry of Justice is dead for that matter. National Defense was a protege for about two years and left to do his own thing (he became a solo hero). Now, a new g
  15. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Ah! I did not check the sheet, I just took what I was on the message board as gospel. I think an acid disad is fine. Seeking cover because of a bad shower in a 3rd world country would be kinda funny.

  17. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Guardian fits Thebes really well. He would have to be worked over a bit, but not a whole lot. Animax looks good too and looks to fit Silverstone well. Promethus is Fed's villian group and I think Animax would be better hunted by him/them Now, I will give 1st dips to non-Silverstone players. So, don't assume if you get in one you will get in the other. BUT, anything is possible.
  18. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Its all legal and I have never used it in a prior Super level game. Kinda looked at two weapon fighting and off hand type abilities as more heroic level. I will let Fed be the "end all and be all" for this one.
  19. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Scientific Curosity - Common would make sense if it was not tech specific. Lab - I have glanced at the character, but have not dug deep. So, if you have a lab, then it makes it easy.
  20. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I was thinking a bit more about... The only maneuver you can perform with Autofire STR is Strike. I would not be able to Grab two opponets, Grab and Strike the same opponent, ect. If the true heart of the matter is impacting more than one opponent at a time, then you need to look toward advantages that do just that, i.e. area of effect. You want to attack two people in front of you at once, take the advange for Strenght, Cone and then limit it with only arms reach (-1/2 or -3/4). I could now strike the two guys in front of me. W
  21. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central The few points for extra limbs is just that, a few points. You want to have a stinger attack and think a tail is in order (extra limbs). You want to be able to snack on four burgers at the same time (extra limbs). Now, you can grab an opponent. Next action you could A. strike the guy you grabbed, B.crush the guy you have, C. use guy as hammer, D. throw guy, etc. Normal two armed heroes would only be allowed to do A, B, C, or D with one opponent at a time. A four armed person would only be allowed to grab one additional opponent. N
  22. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central Acid Rain feels like a really weak disad by itself. Maybe a vulnerability to Acid based attacks (which is pretty rare). Acid Rain, as a environmental pollution meterological event, is pretty rare in the US. It happens more now in areas that use coal for heat or industrial areas that lack air pollution oversight. Ole Kryptonite was pretty darn rare but in Smallville Kent runs into the junk all the time. When he earned his tights and left home it came in less often, but it still came in (not talkin about the movies here).
  23. Re: Catalyst: A Champions campaign on Hero Central I think a few others are also out there that Fedfensor did not mention (Rhino Beatle), so just because your name is not on the list don't think you have been dropped. Once characters have been selected for Fedfensor's game, I am going to be jacking this thread Anyone that did not get accepted please resubmit your character's newest version to the boards. I will then pick five additional players for the Catalyst: Thebes campaign. Don't take a non-accpetance to equate to a subpar character, dislike of player or bad luck has to

    Control Machines

    Re: Control Machines These all look pretty solid and I was thinking along some of these lines. I am still looking for any "unique/unusal" ways for control. Against a player, I was probably going to use a something like Telekinesis on the fly, with a transform to soldify the hold. Zac
