One thing I started doing for my home group was to:

- gather ALL the power, ADS/DISADS, and anything suggested for any type genre (in the genre section of the core book), as well as the new rules (like the Heightened power from BAM! #5) and add them in with all the existing options for character creation.

- then start reorganizing each section (ADS/DISADS, Powers, Enhancements, Limitations, Weaknesses) in their own section alphabetically.


I found, that IN-play at the game table, even with and index and the page (in the core book) that has powers listed with page numbers - it was very very time consuming for my group to FIND a power to reference. Especially when Narrating, and looking to make an NPC "on-the-fly"...

Having the powers organized in sections for the core book at character creation seems to work well. But during play, I found it very challenging to look things up.


My thought and question for BASHMAN is, would it be okay to have an insert in a future issue of BAM! reorganizing each of those sections for use as a game aid. Additionally, if someone were to have Adobe Acrobat Pro, they could pull in these alphabetical pages into their core book for use. Or if someone were printing a book from PDF, add in these pages for use. Or simply print these pages alone for table-use.

I am not sure if that would be "too much" to give away in BAM! I could see giving those couple (big/important) sections of the core book as a freebie being something not desired from a sales point.
Then again, you can't really USE the powers or ADS/DISADS without knowing the full rules in the first place.


Specifically, I'm suggesting only an alphabetical update, perhaps doing any grammar/spelling edits, and potentially adding in the new rules (from BAM #4-5, like Heighten) into the mix. As well as pulling the obscure and hard to find rules from the genre section and cosmic section into alphabetical order with the rest for a single list for at-table use.


It's something I started on as a home-play Narrator Aid for myself and I was wondering if it would be a nice option/addition as a "BAM! Narrator Aid Enhancement" much in the way BAM! #5 had the new character sheet and charts at the end.
Thoughts?

It would definately be useful to have a list compiling all the official Advantages, Disadvantages, and Powers (though I don't think there are too many of these; Mind Blast does seem to come to mind).

One solid list, even just showing the appropriate page numbers to reference, would be so handy.

Cool idea!

Sounds like a good candidate for the Downloads section of the website, in fact, and maybe a freestanding item to put for free online.

Definately!

P.S. Just noticed that the bashrpg.com downloads page should be updated to include BAM #5; and maybe a link to the narrator's screen you made as well.

I wondered whether there is a combat summary sheet. I did not find anything browsing the forum...
