Re: any new builds for our build site?

the Novi, Michigan Metro-Con. Can you tell me anything about this Metro-Con? Also, do you (or any others) know anything about the Detroit area role-playing gaming scene? I've just accepted a great new job in Southfield (my brother lives in Northville) and I'll be done with training and moved there ...

A couple of ideas off the top of my head: 1. Adventure in an alternate reality. They only find out toward the end of the adventure that they've been mind controlled when they break out and one-shot the villain in real-life... or at least Batman did 2. As opposed to taking complete control, just sta...

How to make Mind Controllers fun & a threat?

So my question, that I have in general gameplay for ANY role-playing game that has a mind, emotion, suggestion type controlly type villain... Powers like MIND CONTROL: "You can completely take over another person’s mind, thus forcing them to do whatever you want, by succeeding mental attacks against...

YEAH Mr. J.! You have it about right perfect. That's my thought! As for the carrot for dealing with the drama... good point. I'd not thought on that end a whole lot. My players are doing it all and dealing with it well. This (of course) may be due to the fact that they're playing mostly known charac...

gaming the DRAMA?

so ... I like thinking of ways to incorporate "deadline" or complication type things into the PC-Heroes' role-play. Not overly so, I still prefer the role-play ideas over rules when it comes to backstory & drama in-game... however here's an idea I was toying with for "dramatic action" ruling, using ...

Normal people can't succeed at skills... so....

After a bunch of playtesting of BASH! (I only call it play-testing 'cause I've not mastered the system to memory yet and I always like evaluating new ideas my group has for potential House Rules if we think are needed)... After playing lots, and another group that one of my players is in having thou...

That's a neat idea. No need for normal creature stats then? No Brawn/Agility/Mind?

Other Animals & Creature stats?

I thought it'd be handy to start a thread for help creating other animals, creatures, vehicles, etc.. etc... that are not listed in the core books. For Example - FIRST UP... how would you make a: BEE SWARM (or to change to Wasps, etc... maybe a simple "power suite" change?) I made a villain with "Be...

Can you have several different powers all LINKED? Or just one linked to another (2 total)?

Regarding full color interiors, I could see that being a stretch goal, however, we'd have to hit a really high number for that to be at all economical for a print run. BASH! UE still has not turned a profit on its full-color second printing for Basic Action Games. Sounds like B.A.G. and BASH! UE ne...

All this is explained under the GROWING power (as noted), it mentions that if the extra height/weight (or less for smaller creatures/vehicles/people) is permanent, since it the natural size of the thing. So rather than taking Growing with the Enhancement - Permanent, it simplifies it to say that any...

is the city Megapolis more "Metropolis" or "G

Just wondering... Would you say BASH!'s primary city setting is it's world's "Metropolis" or "Gotham City"? I know it is it's "own" setting and city. But it's easier (for me) to identify a comic book setting/city in context. Both Gotham and Metropolis are grand cities in the DC Universe, but both fi...

Character Sheet, Builder - Open Office

BASH! UE - the Basic Action Super Hero Ultimate Edition, RPG is great fun for playing an excellent superhero comicbook style game. Very much, to me, a nice middle ground between higher "Crunchy" rule systems like D20 Mutants & Masterminds or Champions supers RPGs and the "lighter" rule crunch of ICO...
