Re: Ares

Ares was one of the write-ups whose assignment I inherited when one of the other contributors flaked on the project (pretty sure that's how I ended up with Atomic Skull and Metallo as well). I had him at PL 14 at first and the developers balked (they had neglected to include a pre-determined PL for...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dark Angel! Maxwell Lord! Dr. Psycho! Ares!)

I've heard (well, read) that at the beginning of the story, Genocide was supposed to have been made using Knockout's body, not future Wonder Woman's, which would at least explain the red hair, and might have had some effect on the plot. I can't get over the venus flytrap over her eyes, but it's stil...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

I never liked Hank Pym or the Wasp much. Then I watched Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Now Janet Van Dyne is one of my favorite superheroes.

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Despite his anger over this, Carl adapted fairly well, and started to look into joining the Ultimate Wrestling Federation instead. But his time there was every bit as frustrating, as he kept getting booked as a heel instead of the babyface that he wanted to be, and going under for people who were w...

Look at that face. That is the Green Goblin.

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

It's looking like PL 9 is the average for a "super" in this world.

Huh, this is the first I've ever heard of Dion Fortune. Interesting stuff.

Re: Wonder Woman 1984: Out Now on HBO Max

My favorite bit has to be where even the other robbers are flat-out horrified by what their associate is doing by threatening a kid, all but begging him to stop. I liked that bit too. WW84 definitely takes the position that people, in general, are fundamentally good. (Overall, I liked the movie, bu...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Giganta! The Blue Snowman! The Cheetah!)

The Cheetah is a speedster, in addition to being a claw fighter. The problem is that Wonder Woman is also a speedster, in addition to being a mega-powerhouse. There isn't a lot you can do to make someone a physical challenge to Wondy before the name "Cheetah" stops making any sense.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Amazons! The Mask! Giganta! The Blue Snowman!)

Intresting sidenote: all these "Save the Environment" villians always do MORE damage to the environment than the people their attacking....( Alanis Morrisette's " Isn't it Ironic? " starts playing ) Well, if they didn't make things worse it would look dangerously like they had a...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Oh! Well... good! I'm glad! Somewhere in the back of my mind, there's a Genevieve in St. Louis. :)

Edit: St. Louis in this world, that is. Although statistically I'm sure there are some Genevieves in St. Louis, too.

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

After my last run at gamemastery, I'm sure that no one would be interested in taking part in that, and I can't blame them at all. :oops: FWIW, I'd take another shot at it. I'm not sure if I was an ideal player last time, but the game and the future city interested me, and I'm a little disappointed ...

Re: PALLADIUM STUDIOS 3e: Now Hiring(Recruitment Thread)

Do you have a tone or a direction in mind for the game? A game about the first superpowered people in the world can go a lot of ways. If one character decides to put on a cape and look for crime, one character decides to become a celebrity, and one character decides to go into hiding before a govern...
