Re: Builds on the Sun (Airships)

https://i.imgur.com/7dYBL4o.jpg https://i.imgur.com/q3FVsgl.jpg More airships! These are inspired by the fixed-wing gunships that started to see use in the Vietnam war. Compared to assault gunships, they prioritize quantity over quality, carrying enough ammunition and automatic weapons to pin down ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Karate Kid! Projectra! Legion of Substitute Heroes!)

Hey, a character I actually know!

Well, kind of. I used a picture of her for a PbP character submission.

This one. Ain't she cool looking?

Re: Jab's Builds! (Saturn Girl! Timber Wolf! Cosmic Boy!)

Mind you, I personally feel like most of the Something-O names, the Whaterver-Man names, and even the Legion’s Lads, Lasses, Kids, Boys, and Girls... They have aged far better than the Nineties (Grim Noun) + (Gritty Verb) era of names. Gimme a “Mysterio” or a “Element Lad” any day of the week over ...

Re: Timber Wolf

https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/1/10812/5435071-lonewolf.jpg Speaking again as someone with no Legion knowledge, I absolutely love the idea of a wolf-themed hero with that haircut. It makes me imagine a blandly virtuous 1950s leading man who always eats all his vegetables, frowns on p...

Re: Builds on the Sun (Sailor Mars?)

https://i.imgur.com/EmNwR2w.jpg https://i.imgur.com/21e6RhH.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ZFko9I4.jpg Tom McGrath has a pretty cool page. You should probably go check it out. I really, really like airships, so whenever I run a game, I make sure to put some in. Here are stats for some military models that...

Re: Reworking M&M 3e skills system

The chief problem is PL caps. If you have an athletic guy with the proposed merged skill, say at 12 ranks at PL 10, are his Strength and Agility limited to a maximum of 8, since both now possibly factor into the total? I wouldn't limit strength or agility--I'd just limit the total bonus to the PL c...

Re: Colossal Boy

There's one thing I've come to notice that most comic book giants seem to eschew the cube law, they behave as if their mass was only marginally increased instead of being cubed. Most of the time Hank Pym grew up to 18 meters (60 feet), which was pretty much 10 times his original height, meaning tha...

Re: Builds on the Sun (Gravitar)

I mean, super bricks vs tanks in melee is a no-brainer in favor of the brick...but why do we never see a split panel of a tank taking a shot...and 2000 meters away a non-brick super/villain getting splattered? Probably because the natural habitat of supers is big cities and secret lairs, and the ch...

Re: Builds on the Sun (Sailor Mars?)

He's just sick of Robin talking to him about it. "I don't CARE if the dub said they were cousins, Tim." I took the Dynamic off of R'aee's morphology array. The Martians in DCA have it, but they don't have to worry about staying on 150 points. I used one point from it to give her some telepathy, and ...

Hey, thank you for your reply! Problem 2) There are THREE, plus. Ranged Combat is a dexterity based skill.

House rule for Vehicles skill

I have a few problems with the Vehicles skill, and I've been giving them some thought. Problem one: It's extremely niche. In the default genre for Mutants and Masterminds, many characters will be able to fly, swing, run, or otherwise move quickly under their own power. Even when the heroes have a Ba...
