Re: Why is 3rd Edition so much better then 2nd Edition

I really like the simplification that comes from throwing away the 3d6 heritage of abilities and reducing them to just their bonus (Strength 7 is much easier than Strength 24 (+7)). But I don't think the move to 8 abilities was worthwhile. It's hard to find a justification for giving different agili...

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

Would have liked to see Patton Oswalt stick around as a recurring side character, but it was pretty obvious that wasn't going to happen.

Hope we get to see Maria Hill more regularly now, though.

it was considered funny to be a troll on some other forums and do a post that merely said "Snape kills Dumbledore!" with no context or anything else to say. Just being a dick.) so I try to be considerate to others who may be fans of something but not fully up to date. That generally happened on for...

Re: PL Unlimited PP Limited game

One problem is the players are left with no idea how good is good enough. If I want make a character who I think of as really strong. If I have PL as a guide, I can say I'll give him a 14/6 trade-off and be confident that my character is one of the strongest guys around. Same for toughness and attac...

Re: New to MnM...2e powers compatible with 3e?

As long as you look at Attack: Concealment and just ignore the normal rules for Attack and Concealment and say it's a smokebomb (or whatever) and acts like a smokebomb would act, it works. But it's rather unsatisfying.

I don't remember Elite. Who is that?

I hope the Raven franchise isn't going to get as complicated as the Bowman franchise.

Re: Probably taboo....but is there a Marvel official publica

Since Marvel pulled the license from the last publisher who made a Marvel game (between the time they released a pdf product and the hardcopy came out), I'd be hesitant to encourage GR to try to do anything official. Seems too dangerous an investment.

Damage effects always have a save DC of rank+15.

Re: The Golden Age of Strength.

Didn't Ultraman just push the moon in front of the sun in Forever Evil? That's pretty much exactly what Golden-Age Supergirl was trying to do and got laughed at.

Re: Immunity question

20 points gives you immunity to all effects with a very common descriptor. It's the 5 point immunity that is limited to just damage.

Re: 3E Energy Points option: costs EPs by default or no?

Why don't constructs have energy points? I would expect robots to have expendable batteries. or golems to have magical energy reserves. I'd give constructs energy points as if they had a stamina of 0, then let them buy up more. If you decide it doesn't make sense for a construct to have energy point...

Re: Gal Gadot cast as Wonder Woman

I'm more worried about how they're going to include both Batman and Wonder Woman in this movie with us knowing nothing of how they're involved with this universe yet.

I wouldn't be surprised if Wonder Woman doesn't actually show up until the final scene, or in the post credits sequence.

Re: How much Flight is needed to reach escape velocity?

Since where on the subject of moon travel, can Space travel get you to the moon? Or is that 'too close' for that mode of travel? Cause I would totally make a character that 'jumps' to the different planets, and it would be nice to be able to jump to the moon as well. Given how long it would take to...

Re: How much Flight is needed to reach escape velocity?

Of course, if what was said before is true, it'll take you an entire month to get to the moon by jumping, so if they weren't smart enough to move out of the way in all that time I'd probably just let it happen ;~) I mean, you were out of play for an entire month, that's gotta call for some kind of ...
