Re: Multi-Attack and Area Attacks

Well, barrages are only semi-shapeable, so I see that as a 1 point Extra ("Semi-shapeable") on Burst 2 and up. For increased DC from multiple explosions I just add Unreliable (50%) ranks. So IMC an M19 can do a wide, semi shapeable, barrage: Ranged Burst x (ss) 3 Damage 5 -- 26 points. Or Ranged Bur...

Just give her Quickness, um, 50 or so.

One hundred million dimensions, no resting, one second of her attention per dimension every... 5,000 years.

Re: What is the best setting book for a new GM and new Playe

The New 52 is awfully complicated. The pre-N52 is insanely complicated. Both have high superhero to supervillain ratios. The animated versions -- JLU or Young Justice -- look a lot more doable to me. My group is (lazily) working on a few campaigns in an alternate Freedomverse. Freedom City is defini...

Re: J-Mart: Catwoman vs. Pink Pearl, Metallo, Sodam Yat

Re: Magneto Increased Mass on Move Object, let alone Perception Ranged Move Object, is legit? Seems like it should apply to using the power at Touch range. Why not? How is it any different than Lifting Only Strength? Move Object is Lifting Only Strength -- with Range. 2 pts per rank. And not capped.

Re: Noob Seeking Help: Archetype Question

It's nearly always Ranged Damage 12, some alternate attacks and such. An Environment alt could be a snowstorm: cold, impede movement and visibility at 1-2 points per rank each -- max effects = 4 ranks at 6 points per, 250' radius. Simpler Environments will give you very large area effects. And you c...

Re: Jack of Spades: Sunspot, Cypher, Warlock, Magma

Magma. From an ancient Roman colony in Brazil which settled deep in the Amazon jungle instead of along the coast and never expanded or engaged in conquest of their stone age neighbors for 2,000 years , living so quietly that the Europeans never noticed them. And she's a blue-eyed blond, despite Roma...

Re: Collapsed Version of Marvel Timeline

60 years into 10 years isn't stripping fluff, it's stripping 5/6 of it unless you're stuffing multiple pounds into a one pound bag. Do what the writers do and ignore everything you don't want to deal with. (Frex: Fear Itself decimated humanity and half wrecked most cities. Aftermath: Megadeaths? Wre...

Re: J-Mart: D-Man, Superior Thorpacoverse Updates

One of the things I want to take into account is damage to the environment caused by speedsters or paragons speed. I know Flash doesn't go that fast in Central City because he would just tear crap up. They never really address it much in the comics, but if he was rolling at 32,000 mph, he'd be leav...

Re: J-Mart: Maxie Zeus, Onomatopoeia, Amygdala, D-Man #1000

Re: Supes you said,
"In addition to lowering some power ranks for my higher end characters, I'm also looking at Speed/Flight ranks. I have Superman at Flight 13 for now, which would mean he can circle the globe twice in an hour (Earth's circumference is around 7100-ish miles,"

It's 24,901 miles.
