Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (South American Cats! Soul Worms!)

The Cyber-Knights book did a lot to update the class and make it more in line with the power creep of the setting, and it actually pointed out that having a tech basis for a lot of their powers made sense, since they were C-Y-ber Knights and not P-S-I-ber Knights, which implies a connection to cyber...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Kings & Armor Kings! Lei! Jacks! Xiaoyu! Paul Phoenix!)

Paul's fighting style actually seems like an effective hybridization of several Japanese styles. It covers pretty much all of the basics and lets the individual practitioner focus on whatever area they're best at. Someone should just make IT the national martial art of Japan.

Re: Captain Marvel trailer(original Captain Marvel)

I was hopeful when I heard they were making this movie. I grew up reading the comics about the Marvel family and watched the 70's live action show on Saturday mornings. I am not a fan of characters gettinng powers in movies they didn't have in the comics or characters that don't act the way I feel ...

Re: The most petty thing you'd do as a comics creator

Cause if you're going to call yourself Captain Marvel, you should look the part. So Carol should be dressed like the lady next to Spider-Woman? https://i.pinimg.com/474x/7b/fd/33/7bfd33d45a85c87fb5035a1541d69ab7--marvel-cosplay-young-justice.jpg Heck, Zachary Levi should be dressed more like the la...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (South American Cats! Soul Worms!)

Also, I feel you on those endless Psionic and Spell conversions. You kept most of them pretty basic, which is smart since I tend to get caught in the details of how they might work in M&M (I think See Aura may be the worst). I've made characters using those P&S as a base concept but usually tweak o...

Re: The most petty thing you'd do as a comics creator

As a follow up to that post I made about Carol Danvers, this is a rough idea of what her updated costume would look like:

Re: Disney / Fox Merger Finalized Today

Disney never had its own comic publishing company in the U.S.A. , in several European and South American countries (most notably Italy, France and Brasil) there are -- or were until recently -. branches of Disney that specialized purely in comics. Interesting. I knew Disney comics were popular abro...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

The appeal to Rifts is not hard to see. It's basically Thundarr the Barbarian: The Game . I do love me some Thundarr the Barbarian. There was actually a fun fan RPG of it called "Under a Broken Moon", which is an AWESOME name for an RPG. Though to be fair, Rifts is more like Thundarr meets Fallout ...

Re: Disney / Fox Merger Finalized Today

Disney has, to my knowledge, never really had their own comics publishing, people always paid them for the privilege of publishing books with their characters. Marvel is the first time they've acquired a comic book company, but Disney has also shown that they're willing to license their properties ...

Re: Disney / Fox Merger Finalized Today

I don't think that'll happen. Disney has literally no reason to do that at the moment. The most likely instance of something even remotely like that happening is the continual shrinking of the print comics industry will continue apace, for reasons set in motion decades ago and which Disney themselv...

In fairness to John though it almost always ends up being a case of you played yousefl as often as he wins, its literaly a case of no matter how much John wins he almost always loses something in the process because he isn't as clever as he thinks he is. Yes I do agree a good portion of it is that ...

Re: Disney / Fox Merger Finalized Today

A larger part of me wonders what this will mean to Marvel Comics, if it'll wind up basically being turned into a department that merely controls who gets to outsource their comics rather than self-publish them. It's kind of scary to think of Marvel as we know it ending. I don't think that'll happen...

Policy regarding new films and spoilers

I decided there needed to be some policy regarding new films and spoilers, since not everyone will be able to see a movie on opening weekend. Simply put, when a new movie comes out, all discussion of it should be try to be spoiler free for the first two weeks, allowing everyone who is likely to see ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Julia! Kazuya! Lucky Chloe! Lee! Heihachi! Kuma!)

Well, that's the thing about fighting: it's all about getting the other person to fight your way and not fight their way. The best martial artists are people who have developed a style that plays to their strengths and are good enough to know how to make other people fight their fight instead of fig...
