Really great Heroquest Probabilities Question that then wanders off into the question of ‘is it better to spend 10 Hero Points to raise a skill by ten, or keep them to give you on the boosts.
I keep thinking about doing a “super-family” Supergroup for CoH, along the lines of The First Family from Astro City… multiple generations… uncles, aunts… the people married to family members, the kids. All that lot. I’d really like to do something like this, following the same basic practices that seem to be working so darn […]
HUGE drop in the percentage chance that powers have to shut off toggles in PvP with I-7. Huge.
Notes on I7 (currently on test). Grabbed from here. Notes below:
Due to messing around with retro costumes during my free time last week (ha!), I actually had pretty much everyone logged in at some point, recently. Let’s review: Hang Time (50) Planned on doing stuff with him yesterday. Didn’t quite happen. Hyperthermian (50) Working through an old Carnie arc with him — pretty much a […]
… with this little gem: Table 4-78: 11th-Level Office Encounters. 23-28: 1d8+2 dire secretaries 29-45: 1d2 marketers (demon)
You know what I’d like to do? I’d like to make up a really rough sketch background against which to play around of Lexicon. “The Wose War and Scandal of Eddings Barony”, “The Atomic Apotheosis”, “The Parliamentary Assassination of 2128” Get a group of people together and just… you know. Go to town. Then, when […]
Because this should just be relinked to, periodically: Random Plot Generator. Groovy.
So I’ve been messing around with some Silver Age and Golden Age stylings… Hype was… well, ugly, but yeah, he pretty much looks like a fire-guy from the 70’s. Hang time is easy: go to the cape costume, flip on a few judicious SG colors, and drop the shades — I’m good. Then I went […]
For those of you who are logging into CoH for the Golden/Silver Age party on Friday, allow me to provide linkage to a nice Guide to Golden and Silver Age Costumes 1) Be bold, not subtle. Bright, primary colors. Texture is also key. Silver Age is characterized by matte-tone “streamlining” with the advent of new […]
Via Dave: How to Tell if You’re a Superhero. Darn funny.
“If you bow at all, bow low.” — Chinese Proverb As noted here, in the comments, I messed around with some PvP stuff last night with Hype, both in PvP zones (I really like the PvE gameplay of Siren’s Call alot — I might actually rearrange Hype’s build — with the same slotting — so […]
There’s been talk and planning for doing the Synapse Task Force this Munchie Monday the 24th. I’d very much like to do this, and in order to pull it off I’d conjure that we need to get started early. So: let’s get started early. I’m suggesting that folks try to get logged on by no […]
If you’re interested in staying up to date on the Game Calendar for Casa/Consortium events, and you use some kind of RSS feed-reader, point it at this address: http://email@example.com/public/basic And you’ll see everything going on.
The collected CoH Livejournal Community entries for Doug the Troll. Some of this stuff is laugh-out-loud funny. Start from the bottom and work your way up. High-larious.
I love that you take this throwaway idea you have — “oh, I want to try out a Dark Brute” — and before I’d even get past level two, you have this amazing character and background invested on him. You’re neat. Dolmen is, incidentally, level 9 now 🙂
Let’s see: since last CoH post, I’ve made up a LOT of new guys — sort of playing around to see what I like. … Bear Claws (level… 19 new) got a new toy added onto his claw-gloves from the dudes in the lab that he temps at as a test subject; this new thing […]
Via Dave: Southpark Amber trumps. It’s kinda true, as a few people have said, that there’s nothing new under the sun to do with the Amber setting (after ‘only’ 20 years of rabid player-creation/mutilation of the setting), but sometimes I really. really. really. Miss that game.
Firefly game tonight, session two. Session One is here, basically.
Let’s see: since last CoH post… … Markov (level 21ish) ran into Catelyn (spelling? I think that’s right), the younger sister of his old buddy from Eastgate High School. She’s all grown up now and working as a Hero in Paragon. What did he do? He lied and let her think he was some kind […]
Last Wednesday, had a great, unexpectedly great, time on Victory server. Good stuff. Friday: Firefly game, using Heroquest rules. Set up and rules are here. Good time, if a slow start. Saturday: Spring Fountain Heroquest game. Thought it might be the big finale, but we got started late and didn’t get as far as I […]
Right. Gaming. Haven’t had any of that. Lesse… Umm… Other No FtF gaming, but Firefly (using Heroquest) is this Friday evening, and Spring Fountain is on Saturday evening, so that’s good. COH I got the Ectoplasmic Badge with Epitaph… then ran the first Respec Trial with him. Decent XP. Already had that respec done, though, […]
Java-based Settlers of Catan
CoH: Messed around with a couple lower-level characters — notably Bear Claws (who I think still has (annoyingly) the hero-side of the Valentine’s missions to finish… so I need a villain to help me out there. Got Toothbreaker with Keth and Myca, but not on Bear. Got… Handsome on… Pummelcite… and Beautiful for Gilly (both […]
Blowing the dust (just dust, not Dust) off of the Game Calendar, since we’ve got stuff going on a bit more regularly in the near future. Things to do: Figure out a time to get together on character generation for the Sorcerer game. (Clicking Sands: Blood Simple) Figure out a time (weekly or bi, mid-week-ish) […]
Heroquest, Spring Fountain, this Friday … umm soon. Woo? 🙂
Reminder to folks: Monday Munchies tonight. Same Munchie-time, same Munchie-channel. Mmm Pie has the Frosting-fire mission, and if folks are interested we have a couple ‘evil foods’ we can log on to do the v-day events. Hopefully, I won’t be late (again), due to this miserable deadline today.
So I want to get through the Valentine’s Day content with someof my toons. This requires pairing up with folks from both sides of the tracks, so here’s who I can bring to the party: CHAMPION GOODIES: Level 50 Damage Level 50 Tank Level 34 Scrapper Level 32 Not-a-squid Level 19 Tank Another level 19 […]
