LoS Background question

So, lately in conjunction with BASH Fantasy I've been using an Elven Magic Advantage which works as follows: It doesn't allow you to purchase spells/powers like the Magic Advantage, but what it does allow you to do is spend a Hero Point twice per game session to use a suitably Elven-type power as a ...

Heroes vs. Gangs (and free Intimidates, and Power Tricks)

So here are some house rules that have emerged in our BASH! Fantasy game. Heroes vs. Gangs When attacking an entire gang by RAW, for every 5 points by which your attack roll exceeds a minion's defense, you can hit one additional minion in the gang, making one damage roll which is taken by every mini...

Legends of Steel campaign

Well met, hearty BASHers! :) In this thread I'll post some LoS narratives. It's done in the style of a sword & sorcery Silmarillion, so I hope you enjoy it. 8-) This first chapter begins in media res in a rather unusual way... Of the Heroes Three Ere the coming of the host of Radu, two brave adventu...

Thanks, BASHMAN. :) Yes, I have those supplements. Although I forgot about the grimoire while making Celwen, but I don't think her one power needs it. For her elfness, I ended up doing something between a generic fantasy elf and a Tolkien elf - not superpowered quite to the extent of Tolkien lore, b...

Bannock

Adding another character sheet just to round things out. He may not be the more trustworthy guy in the world, but he's good in a fight. :)

Rashiq

And another fantasy race character for good measure, a halfling rogue from the Southern Kingdoms. 8-)

Celwen

Going with the idea of simply adding fantasy races to Legends of Steel, I decided to put an elven kingdom in the Great Forest between the two rivers. It's called Tuivor (which translates as 'enduring spring' in Tolkien's elvish). Here is a character from Tuivor... https://i.ibb.co/f23j67j/Celwen-Sai...

I remember that star crown! If they were determined to * up the Hobbit movies as bad as they did, they should've gone ahead and given Elrond the star crown (star tiara? tistara?) :D

Tolkien Elves in Legends of Steel

Hello, all. Long time, no see. :) I've had an idea recently to revisit Middle Earth as a game setting, but I also thought about a Legends of Steel game with Tolkien style races. So I've come up with a basic package for a Tolkien elf, but it raises the question of buying Advantages in LoS with points...

Nice. :)

I've read that last story you mentioned, but I haven't read silver age Superman. The only thing I know about that era of Superman comes from things like youtube videos and internet discussions. :)

My understanding is that knock-back is based on damage rolled, not damage taken. So you might soak all damage but still get knocked back quite far.

Anyway, reducing knock-back distance by Size x 10 feet seems perfectly fine to me if you want some extra oomph.

I did look at Legends of Steel's powers, but ultimately did the write-ups as close as possible to the Sci-Fi rules. If any of this gets beyond the thought experiment stage I might reconsider how to handle the stats to make sure the math still keeps things exciting. What I really want to do at some p...

Thanks. :) Also I was kind of testing out some general ideas for adding a pinch of UE to Sci-Fi edition. I think Sci-Fi edition mostly stands on its own, but benefits from a little more flexibility & building to point totals instead of the XP approach.
