Re: Do official settings work?

What I loved about FC, and probably did most of you, was the fact it incorporates marvel and dc into a blended universe, overlayed into a world that parallels the growth of the comics industry. Yet, if you used it as a setting you could decide to take all that in the book and start at zero hour, say...

Re: Ranged Area Burst

JDRook, the opposite is true: if you want to be immune to your own power you need Immunity (own powers) which I think is a 1 pp immunity (at least it was in 2e, and was much like immunity to critical hits a 'rare descriptor, correct me on the cost of this immunity if i'm wrong) Rather than saying yo...

Re: Slow Fade in 3e

Yeah, it doesn't exist there, I know. How about we bump the price to a full 1 point a rank instead of a flat 1 point? Slow Fade 1 would last 2 rounds before check, Slow Fade 2 would last 4 rounds before check, Slow Fade 3 would last 8 rounds before check, and so on and so on. It's not easy to get "...

Re: How exactly does the modifier Impervious work?

I think one good way to use the Impervious is to play with the base damage or effect rank, and only allow penetrating to force a save. In other words: Damage 5 attack is stopped by Impervious 10, and if you use Power Attack you still don't force a save as the base was 5 or less, sort of like Power A...

Re: Emerald City Art Preview and Interview

It would also be good to put out a Freedom City box set by Fall 2015.

I like what I see in the Emerald City but until I sit down and analyze it, I can't say much more.

Re: Observed problems with the system (and my fixes)

I view relying on GM discretion as a weakness because it introduces a potential source of argument between GMs and players, a source of uncertainty for players, and extra work for GMs, without any compensating benefit. To the extent that it is possible to specify how things are going to be in advan...

Re: Observed problems with the system (and my fixes)

I'd advise against dropping Presence-- it creates a weird disconnect where you have three (very important) skills which, unlike everything else, aren't associated with any ability. Instead, I'd add an actual Persuade skill to the game-- roll Persuade against Will/Insight to get someone to do someth...

Re: Pushing massive objects in space

Well if the GM wants the object to be stopped, there has to be some way to do it. If that's just pushing it, cool, or Superman can go aboard and activate the ship's engines by using his heat vision and comic book science. However, this is Superman we're tlaking about, crazy stunts are his stock in ...

Re: M&M3e guides ideas: Skill Packs and Alien Guides

I like the idea of having templates (racial) or if your doing fantasy you could have a 'class', advantages you might want to buy. Instant Heroes and the character generator are among the best products produced for MnM, and a similar template guide would be AWESOMELY USEFUL. I also I like the idea of...

Re: DC Adventures: Universe is here!

A typical Atlantean build or racial template was oddly missing in DC adventures. One would think Ocean Master would have some Atlantean minions to use. I guess Fists of Dorn's Atlantean template above will be the closest. You'd think. It is like not including Inhumans or Deviants or Eternals or Oly...

Re: Gadget Guide: Alien Tech is out!

Is there entries for things we'd call future tech in there? For example, if I were running a sci-fi, or star-spaning game, or a post-apoc game where laser rifles and chemical grenades were present or even higher tech stuff. Is that in there, or was it in another gadget guide? If not, GR can you do a...
