Re: [2e Recruitment] NPC Investigations-Tales From The Junior Associates

I think I've asked something like this before, but how do the Courts generally interact with the mundane authorities? Do national governments know about them? Are there government wizards?

Re: [Recruitment] Unnamed 2e Phoenixverse Game

It's like the "fast-good-cheap" triangle. Your superhero can (A) be powerful and significant, (B) live in a world full of superheroes like them, or (C) live in a world that is even slightly recognizable - pick two. It's my opinion that a lot of popular superheroes work best if you pick A a...

Re: I just noticed

The point discount on a hard-to-lose device seems really high to me. A disadvantage that only matters when the character is already helpless isn't much of a disadvantage.

Re: Vanguard Academy OOC Thread

Is there any kind of PL-related limit to grab bonuses, btw? Since toughness DCs are lower than usual, Violet might have better luck with grappling too.

Re: [Recruitment] Unnamed 2e Phoenixverse Game

My 2e knowledge is pretty rusty, but I'm always interested when big detailed fan-made worlds like this one get opened up to players. I could probably try to make somebody if there was a niche that needed filling.

Re: Vanguard Academy OOC Thread

I assumed that would be the case. If all the PCs are in one initiative block and all the enemy robots are in one initiative block, there doesn't seem to be much reason to wait.

Re: Vanguard Academy OOC Thread

So, question: if a rank 10 damage effect is only DC 20 to resist, does that lower every effect by a degree or remove the first one that's just a -1 to future saves? For example, if someone got a 17 against it, would they have a -1 against future saves and be Dazed for a turn, or just have the -1?

Re: Vanguard Academy OOC Thread

Blair and Chris will go before Valerie, but I don't think they'll do anything that will change what she's going to do. Please forgive the clumsy visual aid. :?

Re: Vanguard Academy IC: Feels Like The First Time

Violet HP: 3 | CND: Unhurt | Room 110, Byrne House | Delta Class A lot of the other students have gathered on top of the black building, so that's where Valerie wants to be: safety in numbers. Valerie likes safety. It's much better than not-safety. But... The other flying girl would be all alone. A...

Re: Vanguard Academy IC: Feels Like The First Time

Violet HP: 3 | CND: Unhurt | Room 110, Byrne House | Delta Class As soon as Valerie steps out of the safe zone, she's looking around the street for anything that might spot her as she hurries into one of the other buildings to hide. Staying out in the middle of the street is just asking to be shot ...

Re: Vanguard Academy OOC Thread

I'm guessing that means the scriers, and not just everybody heading out?

(Scryers? Remote viewers.)
