But that's slightly different from how the actual Charges Limitation works, so it might cause some contusion. Good point, Sijo. How about the term, exaction? The oxford dictionaries dot com website defines it this way: Exaction: "The action of demanding and obtaining something from someone, especia...

Something I am thinking about is simplifying this to simply be "Charges". You get 5 charges. When you fail, you expend a charge, or you can burn an additional charge for +10 to the Result. Once all charges are exhausted, all of your other related powers have a -2 Dice Penalty to all rolls, as your ...

Let's see... Ghost Form 3 vs. Astral Projection powers: Ghost Form limitations 1) You cannot physically attack anyone without the use of another power (i.e. Telekinesis, an energy-based Special Attack or Damage Aura, etc.). 2) You can only move about, insubstantially, as you normally could; but also...

If you want more non-specific names, I suggest Modular Power and Level Reductions, respectively. Good point, Sijo. It might be a good idea to steer completely free of specific names altogether. Modular Power would be one good, non-specific, name for Wizardry. Looking through the thesaurus under "va...

Yes, Molecule Man would be a perfect candidate for Wizardry. Speaking of alternative names for Wizardry, I was thinking of using "Quantum Power Matrix" as a possible "Descriptor" title. "Quantum Burn" might be cool as an alternate for Mana/Spell Burn. You are welcome to use these "Quantum" alternati...

Yes, I love the Augmented Shifting , Extra Effect: Molecular Shift , and No Effect on Shape enhancements and limitations for the Shape-Shifting power. I've seen Boost used as a way of increasing the flexibility of that power and really like the way that Augmented Shifting can replace this work-aroun...

So here is why I really like the Wizardry power. You don’t need to play at the Cosmic-Level Campaign scale to have access to an omni-power! Wizardry provides your sorcerer, genie, space-surfer, and all-round quantum wonder that wondrous ability to do literally anything you need them to do without ov...

Here is a breakdown of the various “any-power” powers available in the BASH: ULTIMATE EDITION game. The first and most obvious one… OMNIPOTENCE ! This is the pinnacle omni-power. Every 5-point rank of Omnipotence gives you 1 character point to buy any BASH power, just by stating that it is so. With ...

This is a brilliant campaign idea. I used to watch the British TV show Misfits, and often thought that it would be fun to run a game with heroes that barely have a super power (like lacto-kinesis! "I can mentally control milk."). This D-Listers structure does this genre one better by setting it with...

BASHMAN (Copied over from Facebook group post): Regarding the wording I can see why "Failure" doesn't work since you can take more of them to force a spell to work. I don't like Obstruction either, but something that represents a loss of mana or something like that might work, but preferable if it ...

So, what does everyone think of the language change from the idea? Instead of building "failures" to a point where your power stops working, your failures build up some kind of resistance (which I called "Obstruction") which eventually became too difficult to overcome, thus ending your power. I orig...

BASHMAN (Copied over from Facebook group post): Right. Essentially lower level means the max you can attempt is lower, and it will succeed less often forcing you to burn more failures, so the power burns out sooner.
Yes, I definitely see the wisdom in this now. Thanks BASHMAN.

BASHMAN (copied over from Facebook group post): I think the issue with letting you have more failures at higher level is that your chance of failure goes down anyway as you rank up. So as is, you will already be getting more use out of the power at higher levels. Very good point. Higher levels in W...

I'd like to start the discussion by proposing a couple of changes to the Wizardry power. The first is of language, the second is a rule variation. Proposal #1: Point #5 ("Failure" and "Forcing"): You do not accrue “failures”, instead a "failure" means that you fail (the “spell” doesn’t work), AND yo...

Discussion on the topic of BASH Wizardry

The Wizardry power, presented in AWESOME POWERS #10 and #11, is a very interesting new ability for heroes. It grants pseudo-Omnipotence powers to non-cosmic characters, though not without innate limitations. I've had some thoughts regarding this ability and thought that this might be a great place f...
