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). That is a good point-- instead I think I might m...

Re: Honor + Intrigue Second Edition?

The inspiration for the Starfaring rules was that one of my players volunteered to GM a game set in a galaxy far far away and he chose to use Honor + Intrigue to run it. So the two of us kitbashed a very quick sci-fi adaptation for it. I have periodically tweeked it and expanded upon it.

Re: Honor + Intrigue Second Edition?

So, I know this has been asked before but it was a very, very long time ago...will there ever be a second edition of Honor + intrigue, preferably with a hardback option and maybe using some of the artwork from the Spanish edition? Print On Demand options are now extensive (DriveThru is producing so...

Not that I am aware of.

Awesome Powers 16: Spellcraft

So I have been adapting the Spellcraft power from the BASH! Fantasy Grimoire of Magic supplement to see how it would work for superheroic games, and I think I have it. What do you think?

Re: Awesome Powers 16: Rituals

These Ritual rules really add a nice dimension for magic in the BASH game. I can definitely see an evil sorcerer villain using his mooks to hold off the heroes long enough for him to complete a nasty spell. Definitely; I have run this exact scenario in games in the past and thought "I should probab...

Counting money works pretty okay in the Fantasy and Sci-Fi games, but how often are Heroes buying things in a supers campaign? A character with the Resources Advantage might buy a rival company-- but this, to me, would be a role-play situation, or possibly a skill check. And Resources are a lever a ...

I would have the point cost dictate how strong the power trick can be. Then let people put 1-3 points in it as they prefer. I might also provide a number of "free" uses for it if they are paying points for it. Like 1 free use + 1 per Rank.
