Re: Palladium/Rifts into M&M

Damn Bill, tell us how you REALLY feel. To be fair, I can easily believe everything he wrote there, given what I've seen from Palladium and Kevin over the years. It's frankly criminal that at this point there have been no major rules updates, that the only Rifts video game adaptation was a game for ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

I created a custom Benefit Advantage for Clark and Steve, which I call “It’s Superman!” / “It’s Captain America!” to reflect the instantaneous awe and respect those two men command in a crisis situation. When Superman flies into a crisis or Cap comes leaping over the parapet, no matter how grim the...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

I also thought the bone claws were stupid, given his original powers was just suppose to be a healing factor, with his enhanced physical abilities and senses basically being the result of his healing factor keeping his body running at peak human efficiency, as well as possibly learned skills. Making...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

Yeah, Scott to me was essentially the Captain America of the mutant world. In terms of tactical ability, getting his people to perform in stressful situations, and morality, I considered the two of them pretty much equals. What Scott lacked that Steve had in abundance was the easy way in which Steve...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

I'll admit, I'm one of the few people whose favorite X-Man was Cyclops, not Wolverine. And it wasn't even close. At least "classic" Cyclops, not the borderline insane cult leader they've made him into.

Re: Palladium/Rifts into M&M

As far as Cosmo-Knights being an odd fit for Phase World, I disagree there as well. Phase World was the "space opera" setting of Palladium, and effectively functioned as "Rifts in Space". You have a "Federation" type space government, you had a "Klingon" type empire of evil warlords, you had an empi...

Re: Captain Marvel (Genis)

Genis I guess is just an untouchable character at this point- his sister Phyla had some luck with Guardians of the Galaxy , but that book soon shifted to the "Movie-Only" roster, getting rid of her entirely. They killed Phyla-Vell off way before the films, and the event in which they did so was poi...

And we're getting into the point of derailment where we need to appease Jab with a hot milf. So.

It’s like the comic book arms of these conglomerates aren’t being run by people who actually like comic books.
Disturbingly, this literally seems to be the case.

Best regards of the day, even though you would probably be happiest if I was saying farewell forever. The thing that would make me happiest with this place would be if everyone could get along, agree to disagree at times, and keep building up this little community of ours.

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

Weird thing is... Gay Legacy Character? How is that NOT perfect for Marvel's recent diversity push? Hell, they already had her! They didn't need to make an all-new character at all! Marvel's so weird. It's not really a diversity push if the characters keep getting pointlessly killed off in various ...

Re: [CROSSOVER] Aberrant (White Wolf) vs Paragons (Green Ronin)

Kreu isn't kidding when he says he was the inspiration for this thread. When he started posting up Paragons builds over on RPG.net I got it in my head to start that thread, and here we are. Regarding Kreu's prefered take, that's more or less the non-Red Skies variant I mentioned earlier. There, the ...

And like I mentioned, I did a custom edit of that image to get what I consider in universe the "iconic" Cosmo-Knight look: https://static.f-list.net/images/charimage/10270860.png I'm gonna "borrow" this picture,Ares.Just thought you should know. :D Me too, just need to come up with a good character...

Re: Palladium/Rifts into M&M

I'll admit, when I do my own conversions of them, I tend to beef up their Strength scores, making them at the very least mid-level flying bricks. The superstrength scaling in Rifts is surprisingly low, and the kind of strength displays you see in some of the art is technically impossible under the ...

Re: [CROSSOVER] Aberrant (White Wolf) vs Paragons (Green Ronin)

Yeah, I admit the Red Skies crossover would be a lot of fun, and I agree that both Pax and Divis Mal have very punchably smug faces. Then again, I did include a bit where Mal specifically gets taken down a peg in that opening post. Because screw the both of those egotistical jackasses. The Red Skies...
