  1. "Pay no attention, Fritz! We still have plenty of ham left?" "Yes, sir!" "Good! [lividly angry] Sandwiches for us, for the guests in the front room... [screaming] but not for the police! The police shall receive no sandwiches!"
  2. House of the Rising Sun is also interchangeable with both (and switching Amazing Grace with HotRS and vice versa both work surprisingly well). Much of Emily Dickinson's poetry is the right meter that it can be sung to Gilligans Island as well.
  3. I'm at the park often enough she knows me by sight and voice. Somedays we play tag, she'll chase me to one end, then I'll spin around she rears back and runs away. Other days she doesn't like eye contact because she wants to stalk. I use selfie mode on my phone to watch her try to be sneaky. I haven't been able to get a full pounce on video yet.
  4. The majestic tiger... Apparently even big cats make the "stink face".
  5. Adding dangling bits, extra weight, and heading over water seems like the worst possible way to learn to fly a drone..
  6. I thought I had an easy pick with one of my faves, Josie and the Pussycats, but it turns out it's at 52/53% on Rotten Tomatoes. So I'll throw out a movie that got so little notice it hasn't even achieved a rating on RT. 2003's Scorched. John Cleese, Woody Harrelson, Alicia Silverstone, and Rachel Leigh Cook combined couldn't save this flick from going straight to video and into obscurity, and I love the stupid thing.
  7. Fable is a great inspiration for this sort of thing. The first 2 story arcs are very solid and are both included in the premium hard cover graphic novel. The video game mentioned above is a Telltale Game called The Wolf Among Us and is a prequel to the comic series focused on Bigby (the Big Bad) Wolf, Fabletown's current sheriff.
  8. Gone for a couple years now. EDIT: There is a small Hero community that does play-by-post over on RPOL.
  9. Why? By your reasoning Voldemort should be just as likely to take a random Killing Curse as Ron or Hermione during the big battle. And what does Ron and Hermione not facing Voldemort have to do with anything? They both face Death Eaters trying to kill them repeatedly and fight in the big end battle. If the Killing Curse works the same for everyone else, who did or did not face Voldemort is entirely immaterial.
  10. Thanks for the "Like," Amigo.

     

    It's astounding how much flak I caught over having that particular opinion.   :lol:

     

     

  11. Just a note on Sean's PRE Attack example. Even if the GM allows a PRE Attack to use Haymaker (questionable in my opinion) that would negate several of your complaints about PRE Attacks. The Haymaker Maneuver takes a Half Phase Action (one might even argue it would be considered an Attack Action ending your turn) and the PRE Attack wouldn't effect anyone until the end of the next Segment. If a villain really wants to pose and posture at -5 DCV potentially leaving himself open to multiple attacks that could disrupt the PRE Attack from even happening, well, okay? My point is mentioning Haymaker in your analysis seems not well reasoned. Applying Push is also highly questionable in my opinion. You point out that PRE Attacks can take place out of turn sequence, but then give examples that require them to be taken during your turn to get bonuses from your actions. You complain they are instantaneous but then apply Haymaker which would make it not so. You complain there is "no reason" for every character to not "pop off" a PRE Attack the first round of combat even though repeated PRE Attacks suffer penalties. None of these points in themselves negate your concern of 60 points worth of PRE being superior to 60 points of Blast, but your comparison would look more intellectually honest without inflating your numbers in those ways and acknowledging the penalties involved as openly as you acknowledge all the bonuses you award yourself.
  12. Invisibility to the hearing sense group would still cover the ring. No one has argued invisibility to sight would stop a sound, you using that as an example in the first place is a complete non sequitur from the topic. You state: "Invisibility doesn't make the SFX of your powers stop being obvious so the SFX of "ring is obvious because it shoots tinymagical shields" remains obvious. Again, Darkness construct." Well, per the rules the SFX of a mundane weapon like a sword is that it is an Obvious Focus of a Power. You are arbitrarily granting some SFX a bonus over others, regardless of your attempts to justify it. Also, nowhere in the rules does it state that the Images Power produces light (unless you are specifically building a light power). Claiming the "light escapes Invisibility" is a nonsense arguement based on your idea of certain SFX and had nothing to do with the rules of the game or how Powers are actually described as working. EDIT: Also, claiming someone with a Distinctive Feature can't be turned Invisible is just crazy to me. I don't even know how to approach that. By your own standard someone with the Distinctive Feature: "12 foot Lizardman", Not Concealable (no Ninja Turtles trench coat is going to hide this guy) could not be turned Invisible.
  13. I see no reason why Invisibility WOULDN'T conceal any of those. If my character has the Distinctive Feature "softly glows" due to magic or irradiation does that mean he can never benifit from being turned invisible? Why does one SFX get punished? Why does magic Invisibility not trump magical visibility?
