Dragonfly: Thanks for the information! I too had the "Blue Book" and, despite not being a fan of its rules, always liked the Champions setting. I will give Champions Complete a look later; even if I dislike the rules I can always convert the characters to BASH! for example. ;) Good luck with your pr...

I'm only up to 5th edition Hero system, so how is the 6th "bloated"? (it was already loaded with stuff, in my opinion!) And how is Champions Complete resolving the issues?

(Also, even more important; any major changes on the setting?)

Wow, there are some games there I hadn't even heard of! But as I said, my access to games has been spotty over the years. And I agree that I, too, have never been 100% satisfied with the powers systems I've tried; they are either too complicated or too vague. Which is not to say I didn't enjoy them,...

Oh, I intend to do a Magical Girl as well; there will be *plenty* of characters showing up in the series (this will be a webcomic) besides the ones in the World Champions. However Magical Girls tend to be either solo acts or in specialized teams, so I don't see one joining the WC.

Your favorite Superhero RPGs (besides BASH)

Ok, I'm sure there must have been a thread for this once, but I can't seem to find it (really, the Search function in these boards doesn't seem to work well for me) so I decided I'd just start this one. Besides, I really just want to talk about my past experiences with superhero rpgs. :P I've been p...

That sounds like a good idea too; in general, I support the notion that the GM and his players need to discuss what they want out of a game before he sets outs the rules. After all, the idea is for *everyone* involved to have fun (that includes the GM too.)

OK, I updated my take on Firestorm: I used Armor to simulate his ability to absorb explosions, and gave him a Devastating Weakness. It's still not finished- he needs more Skills and Advantages- and it might be argued that he's more powerful than this. Still this is a good start, and I hope to update...

Hmm. Interesting. I can see how that can both balance the player characters AND fit into the genre (non-powered heroes do seem to have more luck that powered ones.) I would prefer to just have all characters start at the same point level, but that's something to work out with the players.

If I may join in: I think this argument is a result of the old-age conflict: the writing of comics versus real-world logic. It is true that there's many- MANY- heroes who don't have enough protection against even basic things like guns and knives, yet they (for the most part) rarely ever get hurt, m...

Thanks for the link and the information on UE! :) Yes, it sounds intriguing, especial the power levels and archetypes, I felt those were what the Basic version needed the most. Are Setbacks like disadvantages, or cumulative penalties for not playing in character? (I must be honest: I need to do some...

Thanks for the quick response! :D I have seen some of your characters, and I like them a lot! I will keep the names in mind (that's always the last part of the creation process for me.) Speaking of which, once I have them all figured out I will Stat them in in BASH! and post them here. Here are some...

International Superheroes

Hello everyone! This is my first thread here, I hope you find the topic worthwhile. (Also, not sure if it goes here, if not please some Admin move it.) I'm currently trying to create my own team of International Heroes. I've never felt one has been done well; even DC's Justice League International f...

Hello, I hope you don't mind if I join in on this. I just bought the (original) BASH! ruleset and decided to test it by building, you guessed it, Firestorm. So I thought I'd post my first take on the character here for ideas and comments. (Please keep in mind that, as an adaptation of a comics chara...

Hello, everyone. I'm Sijo, from Puerto Rico. My story is similar to most of yours- I'm a lifelong comic book fan, who also have dabbled in RPGs since the 80s. I recently found out about BASH! from the DriveThruComics.com newsletter and I finally decided to check it out today- the original version, a...
