Re: [SPC2] Super speed and fleet-footed.

It seems to me that if 2 different characters both have 3 Levels of Speed (7 PP), and one of the characters also has Fleet-Footed, then the one with Fleet-Footed should be faster and able to outrun the character without that Edge. It is pretty simple to just increase the movement of the character w...

Re: Born a Hero and Powers

Born a Hero does allow you to select powers with above-Novice requirements. The setting rule mentions only Edges, but powers are acquired by taking either an AB edge or the New Power edge, and thus translates to the power(s) itself. Naturally, this only applies during character creation; during play...

Re: GM and PC in one person

I do this all the time when play- testing a new race or houserule. Or to familiarize myself with a specific scenario.

If you're asking about roleplaying... well, I guess it might help to be crazy. ;)

Re: [SPC2] Super speed and fleet-footed.

Speed basically makes running a free action with maxed out Pace for the first level (2x Pace is a 6 Pace with a maxed d6 Running die). For a low powered Game a GM might allow that to apply to Fleet-Footed, so the first level would be 18 (8 + max d10) instead of 16 (2 x 8 ), but up to them. But I'd ...

Keep in mind that if the character is making three attacks in a round then they are using their offhand for one of them. So unless they also have Ambidextrous (in addition to Two-Fisted) then one attack will be at -2.

Re: What is "ancient" and "modern" climbing equipment?

Pretty much answered your own question. :D "Ancient" climbing gear would be a hemp rope, some pitons, and maybe even a crude harness. Slipping and falling would drop you to the point you last anchored a piton (probably 10ft by default game standards). "Modern" climbing gear is mu...

Re: [SPC2] Character Advice

Using all the great ideas above:

Build the robot as your "primary" character. Take constrct, super Stength, etc. to your satisfaction. Make the entire power set Switchable with Shrink. Basicly, the guy loses all his powers when he exits the robot, except now he is very tiny.
Easy peasy.

Re: LF Fantasy Adventures / Question about Ranks

Thank you for the replies. I'm still interested if anyone else has some goodies to share with me! I did have one question though... I assume some of these adventures are relatively old, as I saw some gear with dmg like Str+1 or Str+2. How does that translate to SWD? Str+D4? Str+1 becomes Str+d4 Str...

Re: [SR]Yes you CAN play that...

Is this really going to turn into another "let's port Palladium stuff into SR" thread?!

Seems to me that the spirit was to see what kind of crazy stuff can be accomplished... like opening a rift to a cartoon world (a la Roger Rabbit) and things like that.

Re: FC vs Core

If the SWD has a power that is also in the FC, use the SWD version.

And if you haven't seen it yet, this thread has some great suggestions for elemental manipulation, and clues as to why all the elements were merged into one power.

As far as spells/powers go, it's all in the trappings system. Honestly it sounds like fun to come up with a ton of elemental oriented trappings for each faction of warlock.
