Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Dragon & Splugorth Juicers! Burster! Mind Melter! Crazy!)

The Crazy is an interesting concept, but hoo-boy does it depend heavily on having a decent player who won’t quickly devolve into a “LOLZ! I am so wacky!” annoyance. My suggestion? The GM should choose the psychological illness(es) himself, with some input from the player as to what they’d be comfor...

Re: Modern Comics & Relationships Between Heroes

Well, during Acts of Vengeage the Mandarin considered adding Jubilee and Pstlocke to his harem and the overall logic was "They are Asian and have powers" :| Well, it’s not like the Mandarin’s interest in them was being presented as a case of true love. Horny old man has a thing for superpowered Asi...

Re: Warehouse W - Bonelli Comics: Tex, Carson, Tiger Jack, Mephisto, Yama

Very cool bio again, Woodclaw. Sounds to me like this character has a particularly bad case of "Overshadowed by his debut" syndrome, where no follow-up story can match the quality of his debut. It'll be interesting to see what becomes of him, especially if he actually teams up with his father. I'm ...

Re: Castellia- A Fantasy Setting (Fairies! Kender! Skum! Slaad- Red & Blue!)

The slaadi were created by Charles Stross for a series White Dwarf magazine articles which were eventually collected as the TSR book Fiend Folio (1981). Stross has admitted he was running a fever when he created them. :lol: I can totally see that. I understand that TSR wanted something of a counter...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

They had one long before that Blonde Douchbag was even an idea.He went by the name Hyperion and he was a member of an Alternate Earth's Hero Team called The Squadron Supreme ,so there wasn't even a Need for the guy... The problem is that Hyperion was, still, Superman in terms of personality: a posi...

Re: Modern Comics & Relationships Between Heroes

Did anyone — anyone at all — really believe that T’Challa and Ororo became a couple for any reason other than being Marvel Comics’ two most prominent Black characters? Might as well have had Silver Samurai marry Jubilee. They met once! They’re both Asian! It’s true love! Well, during Acts of Vengea...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

Those who hate Shuri, hate life. Shuri was a bit smug and annoying, but was clearly meant to be so in-universe- every time she said something, other characters would give that "REALLY?" look. Another part of her character was to show the less-serious, less-stoic part of Wakanda- watch how she repea...

Re: Kirinke's Compendium of Wondrous Creatures: DWARVES!!!!!

Nice Dwarves! Always a tricky race, as for some reason, almost every fantasy race leaves them in a similar position. Part of me wants to make my own a race of literal clones, explaining "Dwarves Are All The Same" by, well, making them all literally the same :). There's a race in Numenera that is ex...

Re: Modern Comics & Relationships Between Heroes

Well, to be honest Johnny Storm had been at this kind of relationship since forever. He pretty much decided that Crystal was the love of his life after 4 panels and ... [drumrolls, please] she actually reciprocated! I think that the reason why today this kind of on-demand relationship are miore noti...

Re: Warhammer 40,000 (Ogryns, Ratlings, Beastmen)

Bretonnia and the Tomb Kings were “squatted” when WHFB became Age of Sigmar . The product lines were discontinued, literally overnight. However, they did publish AoS rules for both (as free PDFs no less) and they are still legal armies (they’re actually rather good when used skillfully). Chaos Dwar...
