For the next Issue, some of us changed characters. I switched out The Traveler for Gomoso, a Latino rubber-man. We basically got shanghied into joining a SHIELD type organization. As a field test, they sent us to find a superagent that had gone AWOL. We found out he had been been acting as a Hero in...

The Giant Robot pilot is, without a doubt, THE best known Anime Template. This character has somehow come to possess a combat vehicle of humanoid shape (animal forms are possible too) and uses it to fight either other Giant Robots used by criminals or invaders, or sometimes Kaiju. Another hallmark o...

Two more game sessions! :) In Issue 3, Traveler and Ophelia were asked by their police contact to help investigate a series of unexplained plane crashes. We agreed on using a plane with just us and the pilot inside as bait. It worked- the culprit was a shapeshifter! In the following battle the plane...

Century Eye's campaign

A friend of mine (and former player who played BASH with us) has started a BASH game in my Discord server where I'm one of the players. I'm playing my old standbye, The Traveller. So far, we had two sessions. In the first, we investigated a suspicious bank robbery. I figured out it was done to cover...

Hi Brenton! Awesome Powers #8 was specifically made for combat-oriented characters, both with and without weapons.
Don't forget to give them the Freak Disadvantage (but no real turtle-based Powers; other than their looks, they are "just" Ninjas).

Saker: Remember that there is an Optional Rule where Advantages can be bought with Character Points (and Disadvantages earn you CP). I use this rule when adapting existing characters because they are often not strictly balanced.

Leveling Up Powers inside a Multipower

A recent discussion in the BASH Facebook Page inspired me to make this thread: how do you upgrade a Power within a Multipower?
