I don't really follow, Aramax. I haven't seen enough of you to become aware of any square pegs. I certainly had my moments early on of feeling like I didn't fit in / was ignored (nothing like the feeling of commenting all over the place while watching my own subs fall off the page without a single vote) / was misunderstood, but that eventually passed. It can be kind of a crazy place here and we're all a pretty wacky bunch, but it's really worth it to stick around and figure it all out.

My advice to you is: relax, really listen to the comments, and try again. Go to Comment

Completely agree with Muro's comments. Not going to vote, because I feel it could use some fleshing out, but I really dig the core idea. Go to Comment

Hitler's suicide was not suicide. Was he killed because he was a mindless dupe to this same dark power? Or did he shoot himself to complete the ritual which ensure his own dark spirit would remain to infect the world for decades to come? Go to Comment

I really like this, although I agree that it needs fleshing out. With some formatting and proofreading, a bit more background and some more sensationalism, I'd give something like this a 5. Go to Comment

I agree- we certainly could do something with this one.

As it is right now, it is mostly a list of names and unbeatable superpowers. Not much use as it is. I would try giving each one a 2 or 3 paragraph backstory to say how he came to be that way and how he uses his powers. Try to include things about why he is that way. My players *love* to do an end-run on me and convert or otherwise neutralize my badguy. I think they like that even better than taking him down. You don't want that to be easy (unless it is part of a continuing scenario-arc), but if they discover that it is possible, they will try really hard to make it happen, with all kinds of roleplaying stuff going on, and everyone has fun.



Also, be sure that he is not too powerful. Of course, that depends on the power level of your players, but a samurai that removes 95% of a hero's health in one shot is pretty damn powerful. Or the rat that can not be harmed- arm him with a knitting needle and he'd eventually be able to kill anyone. Or the hunter with a powerful gun that always rolls criticals?



To my way of thinking, a villain should be 1) very hard to take down, 2) do enough damage to make the hero worry, and 3) have some weakness that can be discovered through roleplaying and/or research. In my experience, an unstoppable villain, or one with a blow-them-away attack will not be any fun for your gamers. They want a challenge, not an unstoppable tank or a Monty Python rinky-dink.

A couple I've used in the past...

Spectre uses his ability to merge with shadow and travel between shadows to get the drop on criminals, who he beats senseless. You might think he's a hero, and sure, he's helped a bunch of people. But he also takes their stuff, and isn't shy about using excessive force.

The Fury was drugged and they thought she was dead. They disposed of her body by putting her in the buildings incinerator. That's where she woke up. On Fire. She's criminally insane, usually failing to distinguish between friend and foe, and burns so hot it should have consumes her long ago. She doesn't talk; only howls in rage and pain and hate.

You really need to solicit some more entries to this before posting it as a votable sub. Post in the forum Fields of Challenge for help.

In the mean time, Public Draft would be the correct state for this sub - let me know if you want me to move it there.

9. Bomb threat - disarm, dismantle, or otherwise make useless an explosive device
10. Deal with a retired supervillain on their death bed - I used this in a roleplay story to pass on powers from the supervillain to a superhero, giving them new, unwanted powers. Go to Comment

Setting took total direction change when I read Scarasamax's Cosmic Era stuff. It turned in a very cyperpunk way. With the mystic connection will now work for Shadowrun type games. Go to Comment

I like this one. A power that seems pretty minor, but depending on how easily usable it is, it could be incredibly powerful in a fight. Switching places with someone can really mess them up, put them out of position, facing the wrong way, all sorts of trouble. Go to Comment

Why would crimes like "rape and prostitution" be mostly eliminated? That sounds silly to me. Go to Comment
