Merry Christmas/Festivus/whatever holiday you do or do not celebrate!

Forum Bug

Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:18 am by Adrian

Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

Yeah, the villains will be up to a more typically A-list level of power, though of course some will probably be weaker. The heroes... Think, like, sidekick-level power, generally. Like, I'll just quote this from Skype as an example of what I'm doing myself.

@Omni wrote:My own character for the main hero team, Burnout, actually has what basically amounts to the full powersets of both Superman and Green Lantern... For about twenty seconds, during which she is in horrible agony and after which she passes out for about five hours. If she stops using her powers before she actually falls unconscious, she's just utterly exhausted. Still, it limits her abilities pretty severely. For her, fights are always about waiting until the last possible moment to use her powers. If she goes too early, she might go down before she finishes off all of the bad guys, but if she waits too long she might get taken down before she gets to use her abilities at all. That adds conflict, and it's enough of a limitation to qualify even somebody with her considerable power for the RP.

That's a bit of an extreme example, since Burnout has a lot of power offset by a lot of limitations. If you want something more normalized... Let's call it the Robin Test. If your hero would be a pretty fair fight for Robin—any Robin, pick your favorite—then they're at about the right level. A hypothetical Batman Test is probably similarly fair for the villains.

Alternately, you can apply the Batman Test to your heroes as well. If the answer to the question "Would Batman absolutely kick my hero's ass?" is "Yes, definitely," you're probably good.

But Batman can kick anyone's ass, because he's Batman.
But ok, got it.

Also, ignoring the comic above, would a Batman/Robin test be fair for these villains/heroes, considering the heroes and villains in this RPG will have superpowers and Batman and Robin don't?

Yes; that's why I specifically picked those two for the tests, actually. Keep in mind that I said that, tonally, I'm going for something like the old DCAU shows. Without spoiling anything for anyone who hasn't watched JLU (and is thus officially wasting their life), the final episode of the series features Batman dodging an energy blast previously thought to be literally undodgeable. Of course, there was still no way in hell he was winning that particular fight on his own, but that's the level that a sufficiently well-trained non-powered person can be at in this RP, and you're welcome to play somebody like that if you choose.

But that's beside the point. Basically, the point is that if your character has powers that're so strong that not even a supremely well-trained and well-equipped person using their resources in a creative, highly intelligent fashion even presents a fair fight for them unless they have superpowers of their own, then you're overpowered for this RP. That's why I specifically cited Batman and Robin.

Also, nice comic.

At least you and I are sensible. *She says, while watching cut-scenes for a Lego video game based on a franchise she only likes for the pairings*

Government funding? Are you crazy? This team's not going to have money. They'll probably be working out of each other's garages, honestly.

Let me reprase that because what government would care about a bunch of D list powered people- does the government (or some third party) know about them/ have anything to with bringing them together
