Building and MMO style 'tank'

People who play MMOs might know this concept. A tank in those games does little damage, but can take a lot of injury, and for some oddball reason attracts all the attacks like bees to honey. But how would you build this concept as a character concept in MnM? For a PC? For an NPC? Some sort of low le...

Ok, looks like the moderator of the MnM2e group has shown up again and put the list on a level of moderation.

So the group I kicked off will not need to go live, and the MnM2e yahoo group should hopefully be working again soon / now. 8)

MnM2e yahoo group - lost to spammers?

The MnM2e group appears to have been taken over by spammers. Is the moderator of that group here? Can you change the group to moderation of some kind and clean out the spam accounts? I've created an alternate group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MnM2ndEd At the moment registration to that group is c...

I run a game in Daily City, about 1 mile from the 280 exit / BART. 2 miles south of San Francisco State University. Game is set in Freedom City - pretty much as described in books save that I have emphasized that the Freedom League has 'moved on to the international stage'. 2e, with Ultimate Power i...

Santa one-shot ideas?

Looking for a one-shot adventure idea for 'saving Santa' so he can deliver the presents... :)

Need it to fit within a span of 4-5 hours, for 5 PCs.

Anyone got any ideas?

Limited on page 115 is -1, not -1 through 3. It stays at -1 in UP as well, it does not change to -1 through -3. Attitude flaw is staged, like range. It is a seperate flaw to move it across the bands of range in attitude. Narrow type and one task are exceptions. MnM is riddled with a lack of any sens...

Yes, but it is still just one flaw. One condition, no matter how severe. So -1.

I'm not building for Champions after all, but MnM.

That flaw only applies to one condition, so I would see it as a -1 flaw, I never allow severity to make a flaw worth more - merely -1 per flaw.

That said, it is an interesting idea.

Perhaps the 'plot device' is not in the weapon, but in the nature of who survives and how. The curious thing about blasts from these weapons is that they will leave some buildings standing but wipe out most others. If you want a realistic answer, read up on what survived in Hiroshima and Nagasaki an...

Thank you for the ideas. Thanks for that song drop. Maybe I can track it down and play it on my laptop the first time I use the character, if I keep the 'ambient music' aspect.

Working out a character concept - Ambient Kitty

Ok, so a couple days ago I'm letting random thoughts flow through my head - what I usually do before starting an art project - and 'ambient kitty' pops into my head as this Geiko TV commercial with a caveman on one of those airport sliding walkways going past a sign to elevator music is on the TV......

That Geek Social Fallacies list was interesting. #5 seems more common among 'non-geeks' than geeks.
