Re: Dune Technology / Setting

I'm thinking of a shield in this way: Shield: Device 5 (Immunity (Projectile weapons, Critical Hits):22, Vulnerable: Lasguns (-1 PP); Protection:5, Vulnerable: Shield Fighting (-1 PP)); 20 PP Shield Fighting could be a special feat that shows training in fighting against shields. I'd ideally like it...

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Black Mask, Talisman, Lady Blue

I don't really know. She's a vigilante-type villain that has been around in Champions for a long time. I don't know much about older versions.

Re: Dune Technology / Setting

That makes some sense. I wonder if there shouldn't be some slow blade skill that rules out non-trained combatants from being able to hurt someone who is using a shield, but reduces the effectiveness of a shield to almost nothing if someone is trained to fight against it. Clearly Sardaukar and Atreid...

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Black Mask, Talisman, Lady Blue

And two years later, I miss you. :)

Thank you for bumping the thread. I love that people still look at it from time to time. I actually use these characters and builds years later.

I'm thinking of using 2e to create a rules set to roleplay in the Dune universe.

Dune Technology / Setting

Hi all, Has anyone attempted to stat out Dune technology (such as how the shield would interact with lasguns or slow blade penetration)? Is there anything complicated about it? I'm guessing that the shield-lasgun explosion would just be handwaved by a GM (there are actually nice rules for randomizin...

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Black Mask, Talisman, Lady Blue

I don't plan on keeping the reaction. I don't think it's being paid for in that construction anyway. I originally had something in mind like the ghosts in the Matrix, that become insubstantial as they are shot at, but I think that is a bit too powerful.

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Black Mask, Talisman, Lady Blue

Thank you, catsi. :) I am working on a weird original character. One power construction is giving me trouble. I would like the character to be able to become incorporeal as a reaction. While incorporeal, he gives off a damaging aura that can't be turned off and can fly. When he isn't incorporeal, he...

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Black Mask, Talisman, Lady Blue

I meant that nothing in her writeup suggests she uses the strength boost for anything other than lifting. She isn't described as using it for hand-to-hand combat (in fact, she has some weaker karate moves that Hero loves to give people). To be strictly accurate, I guess I could add enhanced strength...

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Black Mask, Talisman, Lady Blue

actually lady blues one of my faves from champs. And she does regularly use what i personaly would convert as enhanced Strength. Nothing in her writeup suggests that (and I have several versions of her) and there would be no tactical reason to ever do so. Giving her 14-16 points of enhanced strengt...

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Black Mask, Talisman, Lady Blue

I am interested in your thoughts on why you chose Super-strength , instead of Enhanced Strength? Enhanced strength is expensive and my thought was that Lady Blue can use her powers for additional lifting ability (kind of like Gravitar), but she doesn't necessarily use them to generate more melee da...

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Black Mask, Talisman, Lady Blue

I think you had a typing error on the enhanced dex...65PP? No, that's the total cost of the battlesuit, included there for my own convenience when I was keeping a running total as I built the character. I usually include the total cost of all powers at the end, but for battlesuit/device characters ...

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Gravitar, Black Mask, Talisman

Puzzle would be the polite term. :) I don't have a perfect knowledge of the Hero System, so I can't always tell for sure, but some of the builds are not optimally done. I assume its because some of these characters date from really early editions and the movement through new rules distorts the origi...

Re: Pamela's 2E Builds: Gravitar, Black Mask, Talisman

I hope you don't take all my comments as being overly critical. I really like your builds, and I know how frustrating it can be to post items for comment and have nobody say anything. Since I like your builds I try to comment on as many as I can. I love comments, critical and otherwise. I like it w...
