    Heroic Character
  1. Aberrant RPG - Teleportation Mastery (Shred)

    Yeah, I think thats more than a tad insane. IMO, a "shred" type power should either be done as a touch range Disintegrate, or as a simple lethal damage effect, depending on whether you want to bypass physical durability or not.
  2. New Wonder Woman Series

    I suspect the real reason was "it required a bigger budget that they were willing to pay for the return." They put crap on the air regularly, yes, but genre shows cost a lot more to make than your typical comedy or drama. Somebody elsewhere suggested that what a super hero TV show really needs is to be an HBO series. High budget, high production values, and good writing, all operating on a different marketing paradigm than network TV. "Phillip Coulson, Agent of SHIELD", anyone?
  3. THOR!!!!!!

    According to everyone I've heard or read, the 3D isn't worth it anyway. Post production and not very good.
  4. THOR!!!!!!

    It could have used with maybe a few more or longer battle sequences, but that's about it. Otherwise, it was excellent. Amazing job by nearly every actor involved.
  5. Captain America

I'm really, really doubtful. Marvel has had commercially successful movies for over a decade. And yet, aside from the fluke of Nolan helming the Batman reboot, DC has. . . what, Smallville? Superman Returns? I don't think its a matter of DC not caring about its movies, I think its a problem of DC having a malignancy in their development process that prevents them from copying Marvel's success. I'm not sure what, exactly.
  6. I favor the "you can only buy it once" view. If you want to be able to do ten different things at once, you don't buy multiple body mods. You supplement your Extra Arms with lots of Mega Dex and Mega Wits.
  7. Silly Mal, messing with WoD

    Its not a *totally* impossible alternate scenario, but Q10 Divis Mal is a tad bit beyond even Malfeas in power. Also, I don't really see it being *that* likely that Mal would end up in Malfeas' place, personality wise, but being fair, I subscribe to a brighter view of Mal than the average.
  8. Silly Mal, messing with WoD

    There's also the fact that the Unconquered Sun has an established characterization and origin. And even the version that Holden Shearer is busy ruining forever and turning into a horrible twisted mockery is incompatible with "is really Divis."
  9. Scion: Pantheon Discussion

    I have a very definite least favorite: the Devas. Writer of that material didn't even *pretend* to try and make it fit with all the others. I suspect only editorial oversight kept him from decreeing Brahman the one true creator of the cosmos.
  10. Honestly, I'd drop the Quantum minimum. If you are willing to do a power max to get the extra earlier, that seems fine by me. Especially since you'd basically have to burn most or all your WP pool to do so.
  11. I think as written, that's too weak for level 2. It'd *probably* work as a level 1 power, except I suspect it'd be too abusable in a low level game.
  12. OTOH, the change to how Impervious works is just plain a bad idea. Its now nerfed to the point of uselessness.
  13. Sooooooo, game on?

    I love you guys, but I don't think I can jump start this game. Its not you, its the way I think and GM. Sorry. *looks around* At least the forum transfer succeeded. . .
  14. Sooooooo, game on?

    I think so. Honestly, I've learned a lesson here: I can't GM pbp. The pace kills my ability to maintain creative focus.
  15. Sooooooo, game on?

    *cough* Technically, the game already started a while ago. And then died in a whimper when everyone, it seems, vanished. Sorry.
