Re: Tree’s Monday Night Ne’er-do-Well’s Victorious Game

<Interlude, before the Factory> Castle of Monsters Jean-Claude was surprised to hear his footsteps echo in the basement of the hotel. A hotel once owned by a man named H. H.

With all due respect to the KOTC forums, this setup is far easier for me to navigate; thus why I'm generally here and not there.

Sorry guys, I've been trying to wrestle with Discord since it was mentioned here. Not only are some of the buttons untagged, but some of them my reader won't even recognize as being there in the first place. :P

Re: What do you want to "hear"?

Good point, and I imagine Steve will like more product. ;)

For a podcast, maybe have a "Power Prcedence" or some such for a discussion on a power or package; I think packages probably confuse more people than the regular powers though.

Still thinking,

What do you want to "hear"?

There's some talk about the desire of a Victorious podcast in the near future. If so, what would you want such a podcast to cover? Game rules discussions? Variants? Encounters? New characters? Victoriana? Interviews?

The NPC was an officer that had no ambition and was pretty motivated just to take care of the neighborhood he grew up in, which he was very successful at because of his mesmerism talent. Which he was not very conscious of - he thought he was just good at talking people down or helping them through ...

Re: Long term use & effect of target and mesmerism

That's certainly valid. I've read a lot of fiction that states the more someone is controlled, the easier it is to nudge them in a given direction. I'd probably say mortals would work that way, with N/PC SuperMankind be able to resist long-term. Another benny of being part of Homo Magnus!

Well, since I started this I might as well put in my 2 cents. :) Too many adventures nowadays (at least in print) give tons of details that frankly aren't needed unless your DM style is simply to read aloud encounters. That's ok if it is, but IMO its too much of a straightjacket to me. I want genera...

Just back from NTXRPGC, so answer will be brief. Target...that's IMO a viable use of the power in a noncombat style and if it were my game I'd allow it. Mesmeris...possibly, and up to the GM. Another school of thought might be that the more the Mesmerism is used on an individual, the more their cons...
