Awesome Powers 16: Rituals

Awesome Powers 16 deals with magical powers and artifacts. One of the things we are looking at here is the use of rituals. Sidebar: Rituals: A ritual is meant specifically for magical powers, in which the user spends additional time and effort in exchange for an enhanced result of the power. Using a...

Help a Local Businesss and Game with Us!

A local small business needs your help! This is a coffee shop, Characterz Cafe, that has a bunch of games, and I've run RPG events there in the past. I've volunteered to run a (virtual) RPG session to help them out-- but they are auctioning off a lot of other prizes that might intereste you. Please ...

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 ...

Sidebar on Shape-Shifting

Something I've been asked about a lot is building characters with Shape-Shifting, so I decided to add a sidebar on it. I was a bit worried that this might be confusing to read. So do you think this is clear enough what I'm trying to explain?: Building a Shape-Shifting Character One question I often ...

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.

Thanks for the response! We ended up going with the d12s, and we all really liked it. We still got some pretty explosive rolls from time to time, and it all worked pretty well. The only issue is that it makes modifiers a little fuzzy at times because obviously dice modifiers aren't nearly as powerf...

Mr. Jupiter has it right. Another option would be if there is a Hero with Telepath 3 in the group that they take the "Psychic Switchboard" Enhancement from Awesome Powers 5. For convenience, I'll paste it here: You can allow anybody whose mind you can contact to contact one another, acting as a psio...

Okay so it looks like AP2 had a power called "Mechanical Transformation" and "Mecha" which were variants of "Shape-Shifting" and "Size", respectively. Those powers might just be consolidated to be like "Shape-Shifting (Mechanical)" and "Size".

Shape-Shifting. The Robots should probably have levels in Size or Growing, too. If you have Awesome Powers, one of the volumes (I think AP11) has an updated version of Shape-Shifting where you can buy the power at 1-4 points. 1 point lets you change into 1 other form. 2 points is 2 extra forms, 3 po...

That would be awesome! The one I made via Google Drive is sort of a stop-gap at best. While I *love* www.bashcreator.net, I think having a form-fillable sheet is also a great thing to have!

I don't have any plans to update things to Mythic Edition. Changing Brawl to Initiative would change the balance of how combat is meant to work-- and also make Savvy less important to combat, when one of the design goals was "Every stat is important to combat". While you *can* convert the stats (Mig...
