Re: What If ...?

It belatedly occurred to me that if I described one, I should probably describe the other. So ...

Re: Gaming Conventions - 2020

Add PaizoCon 2020 to the list of the canceled. Since that's in May ... I am not hopeful for Origins or even GenCon.

Of course, I'm not hopeful in general.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Quicksilver! Salem's Seven! Wiccan!)

My guess is that Speed's ability to pass through objects is actually inherited from his father, rather than a speed trick. And before you say it, magic.

Re: What If ...?

You are indeed being "That Guy". Then again, this was at least partially motivated by Cap being placed below Superman, so I'm being "That Guy" too. Just a note about RainOnTheSun being "That Guy" -- the look of those weights seem to be based on the test weights used for cranes, of which these are a...

Re: What If ...?

Me personally, I'm one of the guys that is solidly in the Cap = Billy camp, with the personality differences being an act Billy puts on. He's still the same guy, he just knows to act appropriately as Cap given the power and responsibility he has. But I know especially in the Golden Age that it's an...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Vision! The Wasp III! Scarlet Witch! Quicksilver!)

Looking back at it, I think the biggest problem with the V&SW story about the end of New Salem, aside from the way it gets rid of something "beautiful and pointless", is that it really seriously understates how much mess is left over when you burn someone at the stake.

Re: What If ...?

You've got me curious, now, where do you see conventional weapons measuring up compared to these characters? About the same as the ranks in the core book? Yes. I deliberately put Mario's fire-throwing ability one rank less than a blaster rifle, and Superman's Impervious rank was chosen so that a gr...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Vision! The Wasp III! Scarlet Witch! Quicksilver!)

I kind of dig Salem's Seven, mostly because of their offbeat powers and unusual but not totally absurd designs. Considering the whole team was created at once, they are pretty well done, visually. A few definitely need tweaking-Brutacus, Reptillia, and Thornn (how DO you pronounce two 'N's?) Like a...

Re: What If ...?

Of course, it also helps (or hinders?) that Billy has a very different relationship to Captain Marvel than Superman has to Clark Kent. The way that Billy and Cap talk about each other suggests that they are two different people who experience each other's life at second-hand. In contrast, Clark Kent...

Re: What If ...?

A brief summary: Superman hits harder and can take a punch better than Captain Marvel, and has various super-vision powers. Those are his only advantages. Of course, it occurs to me now that Superman is also slightly better at keeping his secret identity a, you know, secret , but that's covered by ...

Re: Agatha Harkness

Marvel killed her off on two separate occasions- in the first case, she was burned at the stake by the Seven in The Vision and the Scarlet Witch , but the ensuing magical storm was harnessed by Wanda to allow herself to become pregnant with the Vision's children. She soon returned without explanati...

Re: What If ...?

What follows is probably not the first build you'd expect for this thread, but it's something that came to me while I was thinking about Strength and its applications. Breaking bricks is probably a good example of what you can do with Strength 6, you see, and ... well, anyway. Mario -- PL 6 https:/...
