Re: My Ideas for New Traits

Yes, GADGET SOURCE . That's brilliant! Like Gadgeteer, you come into a game's Issue with an allotment of gadgets already assigned (show up to the table with Narrator-approved devices), as per the advantage predecessor. You then make a call to your resident specialist when your current gear is found ...

Re: My Ideas for New Traits

Interesting, the D20 Amazing Adventures has a Gadgeteer class that has two options, one is the Intelligence based version where you make the Gadgets yourself, another is a Charisma based version where you have someone make gadgets for you. The first option allows you to make changes in the field wh...

Re: Weapons and Damage

I'm not too confident on the conversion of Heroic-level BASH games with the super heroics of Ultimate Edition, but I don't believe that there would be any major porblems with using the Legends of Steel equipment list for your supers games. I know that Awesome Powers 8 has a great update on melee wea...

Re: AP 16: Spellcraft

I hadn't thought of the idea of having multiple, separate Spellcraft powers (as represented by being in possession of more than one arcane spellbook). Previously, I might have given a spell caster the Grimoire advantage and let them tailor the various spells they have available for each game session...

Re: Awesome Powers 16: Spellcraft

I agree. BASH:UE is an excellent choice to play sci-fi and fantasy games. Just keeping CP levels down around the 20-point range gives you a pretty "heroic" level of play and the best part is that it is so much simpler than dealing with the points levels and costs of Hero System or GURPS (admittedly,...

Re: hi new here this was our game last night

Welcome to BASH, paulpiercegt . It sounds like you and your players had a wonderful first game. Great move of starting them with a super patron who both empowers them and trains them (if I read this correctly). I love the idea of a moon base headquarters. I laughed when you had said about your nephe...

Re: World of Megapolis, 1935

This is an outstanding gaming idea and definitely a great way to add meat to the BASH universe! I'm looking forward to seeing how events and stories develop.

Re: Shape-Shifting: A Closer Look

Sijo, great breakdown on the Shape-Shifting power. I love your point about the odd loophole of the power that could technically allow ICE-MONKEY as a Shape-Shifting option. For a good while, I had thought of Shape-Shifting as a sort-of "Omni-Power" ability that allowed a hero to sacrifice Agility or...

Re: My Ideas for New Traits

pawsplay , while I can see your point about substituting some combinations of Armor, Shape-Shifting, Boost, and whatnot with the Density Increase power as a more straightforward means to provide a hardened form that isn't necessarily as massive, I would point out that the mechanics of how that powe...

Re: My Ideas for New Traits

Adventurer: That lowly hero who strives to bring justice where any other normal, sane person would decide that its just not worth it! Lol, this is the absolute lowest rung on the ladder of heroism. Still, 100 Hits, CP free equipment, and advantages does give them quite an edge compared to your typi...

Re: Super Forms explained

Sijo, this is brilliant! I always imagined Mr. Jupiter as transforming from a 'Normal' person to his super form (which is a near, 10' tall giant as his base mode and further growing up to 50' tall, if the situation warrants). This parsing of the Normal disadvantage into 'Normal' (still a disadvantag...

Re: Honor + Intrigue Second Edition?

I'd love to see this supplemental book for H+I. The idea of adding a layer of arcane magic to the rules sounds like great fun! I'm also interested in the sci-fi adaptation. I hope that you could sketch out a starter for a setting to go along with it. I remember as a kid, shortly after Star Wars came...

Re: Awesome Powers 16: Spellcraft

This Narrator's option, of any "Normal" character being able to learn Spellcraft, might suggest that this power deserves being placed in the INTENSE TRAINING POWERS category (though with the obvious caveat that this is at each Narrator's discretion).
