New to this community and looking to find and meet some folks who might be interested in an RPG community that's themed solely around IDW's G1 Transformer continuity. As many of you may know, this specific type of RPG community is rather rare. Back in the day, there used to be several, but since then, most of them have closed down. Which leaves finding other people who love Transformers AND RPGs kind of hard. Our game is called Transformers: The Dark Eras, and is a server based MUSH. If you're wondering what that is, this article may be helpful. If you want to learn more about our game specifically, you can check out our wiki here. Right now, we're looking for more people to play 'Bots in leadership, specifically Optimus.
I recently came up with an idea for a robotic/android superhero. The story goes, a highly evolved form of Artificial Intelligence was capable of emotions, perceiving and interpreting the things around it, deciding what was right and wrong, etc. At some point, it became totally disillusioned with the human race and the state of the world that it was living in, and decided to commit digicide (computer suicide). BUT... before it deleted its own code, it built a large andriod as a kind of "saviour" to the human race, hoping that would help, but still feeling incapable of stomaching the potential failure. The andriod was capable of transforming different parts of its body to be a nigh-unstoppable evil-fighting machine, and had a transformable human form. I need help with: 1. Coming up with a better word for digicide. Codicide? Robocide? There might already be a word in standard use for this act, but I don't know it. 2. Coming up with a name for the super-saviour-android Hero. I wanted something computer-code-like, that has something to do with protecting, saving, failsafes, fixing, debugging, cleaning, defragmenting, etc. But I'm not a computer programmer, so I'm not familiar with the lingo. Thanks in advance!
I am new to the Hero system and the Champions universe. I have the new Champions Complete book and am struggling with matching character concepts to rules. Please help me help a player to create his character. This player wants a robot character that looks and acts human. This robot can sprout rockets out the back of his thighs and wings out his back in order to fly. This robot can also sprout laser guns from his forceps. He can fly and shoot at the same time or choose to only use one. He must drink motor oil three times a day to keep his robotic parts lubed. He is wanted by the secret federal organization that created him so that they can remove his A.I. and produce more of him. In game terms, I am sensing he needs Flight, but is there a Power Modifier to represent that he needs to sprout those wings and thrusters before flying? I think I can model the laser guns, but does the required sprouting considered a Transform or maybe a partial Multiform? He obviously can't Transform others, and I see no Power Modifier to limit the Transform to himself, but it's not a full Multiform either. Once those are decided, do I group them in Unified Power and/or Multipower, since he is a robot with this ability to change into a flying, fighting machine? Does the Transform get Linked to Blast and Flight somehow? Any help you can give this noobie would be great.
