Re: Wow, he sounds cool...

Good suggestion Lurker; I wonder if that's in the "How to be a Supervillain" rulebook? If not, why not? ;)

Mike who if he's a horses arse is at least what most Victorians look at for a good part of their lives! :D

Re: Thug & mook stats - Modern Victorious

Yeah, I was so concentrated on getting the animals, monsters, and supers together I didn't think to put in sample mortal character types like the above. Would you mind if I posted them on victoriousrpg.net with your being credited (either as Les or Lurker)? BTW, I had just 2 thoughts: 1. Why do the ...

Well, crap. I'd read that you weren't going to run the game so I'd just assumed there wasn't one. :P

Re: Imp

Pretty neat! I'd consider adding as a Shortcoming something like "Phobia: Smartass" or some such, since those type of characters usually are. ;) Or maybe its just the company I keep that makes me think so?

Generally sidekicks were expected to have 1/2 the skill and power ranks of the hero to make sure they don't outshine their "hero/ine".

Re: Mongoose Traveller 2E/1E

I'm sure it boils down to the same reasons WOTC doesn't keep selling the Dragon CD ROM. Namely, that they'd need individual approvals from the art/cartoonists to reprint in an electronic form; much like Kenzer & Co did with ssuing Wizards over KODT strips in Dragon. I agree its sad, and these sc...

The latter, I'm afraid.

Another consideration is Lightning Speed, allowing 2 actions every other round at rank 1. A small investment but with a hell of a payback! You think that's bad? Try keeping track of Absorptions! One of my PCs ("Glut") does a Sebastian Shaw and so with every blow he absorbs he has to calcul...

I allow PM to be used like any other power. That is, it takes an action so if you want to use it you can only do so either on their INIT roll or lower if they hold action. That being said, I agree that excessive caution might be a problem, so if I were you I'd allow reactive at least for a while unt...

:lol: Sounds like a great time! Good use of Probability Manip., it can really come in handy when events get out of control. Are you going to do a Treebore and let them modify their powers a bit now so as to make the next game more fun?

Oh, and how are you handling Victory Points? ;)
