Re: Heroes Unlimited Play By Post?

For genetic engineering I'd say you'd require some advanced science skills - specifically, Biology taken as a scholastic skill. That is, assuming you wanted to do the actual work yourself. You do have Computer Programming, so I would say that given enough time you may be able to write an AI capable ...

Re: Heroes Unlimited Play By Post?

Unfortunately, the specific rules on inventions are... Well, there aren't any. The game book gives some general guidelines in regards to how long it takes and what sort of skill bonuses and penalties may apply, as well as examples of common constructions, but the general idea is "if you can con...

Re: Heroes Unlimited Gameplay Thread

After a moment, the contact shook his head. "If you hadn't agreed to help, you would not be here. If you have changed your mind, you are welcome to leave. I don't believe you'll find it easy to return to your usual line of work, however." He paused, looking at each person in turn. "No...

Re: Heroes Unlimited Play By Post?

Updated character sheet has been sent, Prospero. In regards to inventories, which are not included in current character sheets, the one week of lead time in the game thread is intended so that players can gather what they need and be prepared. When we're ready to begin the first mission, I'll send o...

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

I believe that "windmill effects" refers to things like Dragon Mage's effect - that is, emptying one's hand and drawing a new one. If you want to go nuts with effects like that, I think the answer is clearly Teferi's Puzzle Box and Prototype Portal . Just keep your commander in play and yo...

Re: Heroes Unlimited Play By Post?

I'm sad to see that Invisible Castle has finally gone. I've used it, if memory serves me correctly, since the early 2000s. That said, I found this site that seems like it could fill the void. As an added bonus, by using the 'save [name]' and 'load [name]' functions, we can keep track of rolls as nee...

Re: The thread of win

She posted it on Facebook, as did a huge number of others, and every single one vehemently condoned everything contained within. Please forgive me for this. I realize it's really minor, and it's one of my pet peeves - condone means to support or allow something. Condemn means to speak out against o...

Re: The lame superpowers thread.

Some of the minor powers from Heroes Unlimited count, I think, if they're the only power the person possesses. They're still powers, so they have some level of awesomeness, but compared to any superhero that gets their own comic book... Well, you won't be hearing about Multitasking Man, who can wash...

Omnicrat's character's name is Robert Fitzgerald - or at least, that's the one I found in their posts about it when I was compiling the sheet. You're free to change it if you'd like, Omnicrat. Belgarion, I thought I'd said a while back that we'd work out your character and then write you in to the c...

Re: Building a LRR-Themed Alpha Centauri Faction

Unfortunately, Probe team offense cannot be separated from probe team defense. That's probably an issue with my wording - I'll adjust the post to better reflect that Offense refers to attacking with any unit and Defense refers to repelling attackers. In regards to Revolt, that's the chance of having...

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

Lim-Dul is the way I was leaning. For that, though, I have to figure out where I put the Cabal Coffers I bought a while back. I know where my Urborg is (only really relevant for any nonbasic lands I wind up running, which would be a small but nonzero number in a mono-black deck). If I design a deck ...

For the purposes of this particular campaign, everyone's playing a mutant with two minor powers to start, which will grow and change as the player advances. That much isn't random.

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

I kind of want to build a zombie Commander deck, and I'm not sure which colours to go with. I'm mostly trying to decide between Sultai, Grixis, and mono-black, since I already have a Grimgrin commander deck and those are the other colours I have potential commanders for already. Any thoughts?

Shouldn't be a problem, Tzimisce, we can work around that.
