Re: Castellia- A Fantasy Setting (Arrowhawks! Hags! Harpies! Hydras!)

I'm a big fan of Hydras. Hydrae? Anyway, I think they're one of cooler looking monsters out there. Why did you have the area attacks only when recovering from damage? Is that some kind of frenzy attack?

Excuse me, Jab? He was a centaur who turned flying horse who turned into cowboy. Gosh! Don’t you stupid boys know anything!? UGH- sorry I'm not all up on your gross FEMININE stuff, woman!! *continues researching the tragic death of Monster High while trying to find Legacy Day CA Cupid on eBay* Glad...

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

I'll admit, I prefered the Brainy who was actually more of a nice person. The SW6 Brainiac was actually this kind of dorky but really sweet guy, and his relationship with Andromeda was very "Mr. Miracle/Big Barda"-esque, where the girl was this tall, Amazonian, passionate powerhouse while the guy i...

Re: Night Girl

NIGHT GIRL (Lydda Jath) -Night Girl's a funny one- she starts out in the '60s being rejected because her Superman-Class super-strength is ONLY AVAILABLE TO HER AT NIGHT. I know I'm a little late here but how does that work for a team that spends so much time in space? If you're not in a solar syste...

Re: Your Favorite Crossovers - Book and Comic edition

So I just gave Worldscape a read, which is the aforementioned Pathfinder crossover with several other pulp heroes. I'd say it was a lot of fun as well, the writers clearly having a blast drawing on all of these diverse genres and heroes. Interestingly enough, of the iconic guest stars like John Car...

Re: Reworking M&M 3e skills system

The problem is that M&M isn't really suited to handle dual-stats skills, but this might be a good model. I like the idea of varying the ability used for skill checks based on what you're trying to do. The book hints at it a little in the description of the Expertise skill and I think you could expa...

Re: Reworking M&M 3e skills system

Well, as thos who have followed my Overwatch builds series know, I've been tinkering with the M&M skills since I returned. The point is that while I've kind of outgrown the old 2e system, 3e isn't quite right for me. There are a number of kinks I want to hammer out and I really need some input. Acr...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Humbug! The Hellbent! Hellcat! The Hood!)

Regarding Hellcat, she did get some bonafide mystical powers when she was brought back to life, so the idea of her having mild superhuman stats doesn't seem that weird to me. Tigra's super strength seems to fluctuate all of the time, from her being roughly on Spider-Man's level to sometimes only ba...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Humbug! The Hellbent! Hellcat! The Hood!)

Patsy probably got a bit of a powerup during her time "dead" as she spent most of the time fighting in the pits of some hell or another. I think it was Mephisto's domain but I'd have to go back and look. I don't remember her being super strong but "peak human" seems to be the minimum for heroes thes...

Re: Hellcat

Most recently, Marvel's big "Diversity/Female Character" push led to a very indie-style, humorous Patsy-related book, showing her starting a job agency for super-powered folk. It's VERY emblematic of "this era" of Marvel's comics, in that it's designed to be non-superheroic, non-costumed, non-serio...

Girallons are pulled (almost) directly from the White Apes of the John Carter of Mars books.

Re: Heroes Unlimited: OOC thread

Hey guys. I'm going to have to drop from the game. I lost my connection with the character a while ago and it hasn't come back. Sorry to bail on you but I'd hate to suck energy from the game with a lifeless character. Thanks for the good times
