Re: Lost in DC [3e Recruitment]

How would the amnesia work with obviously nonhuman abilities? For example, anyone with way more than human strength would realize something was going on as soon as they lifted anything or performed any strength-affected activity. Even for spiderman's 10-ton lift, any such activity would require 1/10...

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

The Jaegers and the Kaiju are not PL 12. Remember, even the smallest of them would need Growth 20 to reflect their size, and some can survive nuclear explosions.

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

It has more to do with the division between basic powers and advanced powers (as I call them). A basic power is a power that does nothing that high ability scores, skills, and mundane-tech equipment wouldn't be able to do if increased numerically to match the power level. Advanced are those powers/d...

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

Do note that both Impervious and Regeneration only protect one against normal, physical damage. Damage that is resisted by fortitude, will or dodge (or is penetrating) will flat-out ignore her impervious, not to mention hit defenses several points lower. Afflictions can knock someone out fast, with ...

Immunity: Toughness won't always work. There are attacks that use energy but are based off fortitude instead. Prime example is your standard tazer.

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

Doesn't that make you pretty much immune to everything though, as pretty much everything can be justified as falling under the category as some type of "energy"? There's a bazillion of things immunity to actual energy won't protect you from. Chemical and biological attacks for one thing. Absence of...

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

Fear can be more accurately reflected with Affliction vs Will (impaired+vulnerable/compelled+defenseless, perception area, perception range, limited: close) for 3 pp per rank. It works like this; 1) You can use the ability on everyone you can sense at once - it's not a weapon you have to aim after a...

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

Interesting - I thought only trolls turned to stone if exposed to sunlight. Also, I wonder how old this dwarf is culture-wise. Juggernaught is a Chinese legend so if he's old enough to have had Old Norse - like culture take precedence, there might be another name he'd choose.

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

A.S.T.R.A. Really, really cool! Personally, I'd like to see a bit more of her personality though. Also, beware of attacks that affect objects. Being a construct without fortitude score means she'd automatically get the worst result. I just didn't think that 'Poison Ivy' was in the same league as 'S...

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

OK, reduced her speed and senses and made banishment an affliction. Two more things;

1) Does anybody have an issue with her making lasting portals?

2) Does anybody have an issue with a purely defensive forcefield that has a very large volume? Like, cover a town and still retain high toughness.

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

@Hound: The dimensional powers profile has a much cheaper banishment that works like this. It only banishes you to one dimension on a failed save but that's not a meaningful difference; if you can't dimensionally travel, you won't be escaping anyway. The issue with such abilities is that they don't...

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

Here's Kara In-Ze as Guardian. I took the idea that she might or might not be a refugee from an alternate continuity in which she was ret-gone and gave her a related powerset. She mostly plays a support role; opening paths for the team, defending the team and its stuff, moving very large things, see...

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

Lot of paragons being floated. It's the most frequently occurring powerset in fantasy, mythology and sci-fi. Look up every god or advanced alien out there and what do you see? That they are stronger, tougher and faster than normal, usually with some alternate movement type (flight is the most commo...

Re: Discord (3E PL12 OOC) - Recruiting till July 27

I was thinking of a gravity-controller and/or paragon that is also a scientist, inspired by Alura and Kara Zor-El. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/3/38758/2422029-192.jpg A few questions though; 1) How powerful are we supposed to be in the grand scale of things? City-wide conflicts? Nat...
