Whelp, Sawyer just found the new nickname he's going to use for Thorp's character. :D
All I read was "Blah blah Sawyer doesn't like breathing anymore, blah."
Sawyer is smart enough to use such nicknames while hovering a safe distance overhead :).
He has to land to sleep sometime.

Yeah,i think Slyce(aside from maybe Silver Witch, Doc Mercury or Semallia(?)) is the only person in the Crew that can get hrough Mustang's hide(which,if i'm not mistaken,is the highest Protection in the VL right now).The reason i say this is multi-fold:
--a fight between Mako&Todd(if on dry land) would result in him just overpowering her...
--A fight between Mustang and any other Strength based people(Hercule,Galactica,The Shield) ends in "No Contests'...
--Flyby could possibility be caught and Powerslamed if he swung by too close...

The only person that could "take out" Mustang at his own game if Slyce,due mostly to the Claws.Check out the math,it paint's a rather intresting Group Combat Dynamic...
Aw, Slyce can take a joke. Don't think he won't have something for Sawyer, though. ;)

It's possible Slyce could take most anyway in the team in a straight up old-school melee fight, but that's all he can do. He wouldn't stand much of a chance against anyone with ranged effects or versatility like the Silver Witch or Doc Mercury. Mustang's probably too mobile for him in the long run, too. Same for Galactica.

He's a one trick pony, just like I wanted him to be. He can hack, slash and soak up damage, just like the old Canucklehead. I actually almost named him Carcajou, but I thought that was a little too on the nose. ;)

I get the feeling I've missed something.

Mustang's Impervious is 10 ranks, right? And 3rd Editions rules means that you're immune to anything that does 5 damage or less, so everybody should be able to scuff him up a little bit.


But by an large I've learned the hard way: Never underestimate the dice.

I've managed to win fights in a few games against super villains I had no right to be in the same room as due to nothing but dumb luck! ;~)

I've also had my attempts at some awesome moments kind of hamstrung :oops:
Nothing like a critical failure at the wrong time to bring defeat from the jaws of victory.

Eh, by the numbers, Mustang and Galactica are pretty similar, so it would come down to the dice. If she got him in a grapple, it would be a little tougher to break out, but her Improved Trip would be the most annoying thing for him to deal with since he has only a +3 to defend if she chooses acrobatics for him to defend with, though tripping doesn't really accomplish much.

So it would ultimately be a long, drawn out sparring match, but where Galactica has an edge is that she recovers when she does damage, so she has somewhat better staying power because of that.

Long and short, it would be a very boring fight.

This is 100% truth. When Jab ran his Mortal Kombat/Street Fighter tournament I beat his Goro with Dan (of all people) And there was a 3 PL difference!

Alright, SO... with Silver Witch moving y'all, you will arrive wherever you want to be within one round, so after the next round, you can all roll Initiative and join in the fun.

As you can see, the Hillbillies aren't exceptionally accurate, but aren't under "Minion Rules", so taking them out will take a few shots each, at least.

Well, Flyby said he was going to pack the shield around, but he hasn't mentioned it since.
I figure there's a 50/50 chance he left it back at the base ;~)

Guessing that it's Shield's turn to act?

Oh shit, you made him WAY more toughness-shifted than I thought. I assumed he was as tough as he was strong. Okay, DC 19 toughness check then :).

I was actually waiting for an affirmative from you, wasn't sure if you would trust him with the shield lol. But yea, he would have brought it, when else is he going to get to shield bash someone? ;)

Second highest. Adrien's 12 Toughness, and Todd's a 10 I believe, at least on the copy of him I found. That said, I think a fight between them wouldn't so much end up in a draw as it would be an entertaining fight with the victor unclear, dependent on rolls and tactics.

Harry is Toughness 11. Third highest.

And if Galactica uses her Kinetic Field, she's got the highest Toughenss.

And, upon rechecking Ariana with her force field matches Herc, and Rosa matches Harry.
