Re: MurderBrawl I (OOC And Sign Ups)

The reason why people are griping over Shen's Full Metal ability is because Boxer spent a great deal of time hyping it and talking about how good it is. In reality, it's very possible to defeat with even simpler two-stage maneuvers and a bit of good planning. If your character is literally unable to...

Re: MurderBrawl I (OOC And Sign Ups)

I'm going to break this issue down to its most basic element, which is actually quite simple. The difference between tiers in character power should be indicated through shifts in the metagame which occur due to the presence or absence of abilities. Read that again please. The difference between UM ...

Re: MurderBrawl I (OOC And Sign Ups)

Why would you assume that Shen wouldn't have agility? Remember he can mess with the properties of the metal, he can make it weigh as much or a little as he wishes too. Movement speed isn't something I need to worry about, since I can play with magnetism, I could bullet-train my way around. Oh, that...

Re: Grassroots 2012 Artwork Request

I'm still interested in gathering artwork for stages, although at this point there probably won't be quite enough time to get all of them done. Please PM me or post in this thread if you are interested.

I already read that, thanks to being able to reset my internet cookies, so I could view the forums as a guest.

Barney, may I resubmit my profile with a clarification? It was implied, but not directly stated Vicix has other Psionic abilities than the ones I listed. The revision clarifies this point, and makes no other changes. Vicix Nal'adan A former High Templar of significant Psionic capability, Vicix origi...

I don't think there is armor out there, real or otherwise that could withstand a 1200lb, beyond scalpel sharp piece of iron coming down on it, especially if that piece of iron is made to vibrate at several thousand rps. Plasma Shielding, Gravitational Field Embedded Armor, Electromagnetic Shielding...

Re: MurderBrawl I (OOC And Sign Ups)

This is an official declaration (two really). Barney, update your OP to include this. Perhaps it will net you a few extra contestants. The winner of this tournament is guaranteed second seed in the 2012 instance of The Grassroots Tournament. If I or another GR official wins, the first eligible runne...

Re: MurderBrawl 2012 (OOC And Sign Ups)

Barney, I understand that you want to run a tournament similar to the Grassroots, but do you really have to use the exact same subtitle that I did (Germination)? It's not that the tournament isn't appreciated, it's just the fact that it pushes the event from a flattering look-alike of the GR to a cr...

Zero-G


After a few turns of IC learning curve and adaptation, that'll be my favorite stage, and likely Magnus's as well.

Re: Combat Advice: Adaptation and Tactics

Effectively combatting a competent opponent who manipulates earth requires forward thinking and effective territory management from the player. As stated, infusing the ground around you with an element under your control can be beneficial, but is often neither time nor cost efficient in an equivalen...

The fighting community here sure is dead, isn't it? Where the heck did everybody go? If anybody's itching to fight, PM me and I'll get back to you when I check the site next (once a week or so from this point forward). I fight Powered or Mild Powers T1.

Re: Text Combat. Tricks and How To Beat Them.

Anti-matter will basically destroy the whole thing if applied correctly. Too bad that Antimatter, when coming into contact with actual matter, creates an explosion equal to about twelve hiroshima missiles. And that's giving it the low-end of the spectrum, with only about two ounces of antimatter. T...

Re: Grassroots Tournament 2011 (OOC & Sign-ups)

I've been checking back on this every few days or so to keep up to date, but at this point, the tournament is more or less out of my hands, so I haven't said anything. Klikxx, write up a full, in-depth description of your character's appearance (your choice if he has Kei'Taro's tattoos on), and send...

I have recommend DarkManticoreX2 to be a secondary judge in case you want/need assistance with reviewing the fights, Skallagrim. You may choose to have anybody else help you in his stead, however.

Re: Text Combat. Tricks and How To Beat Them.

I downplay everything brought to attention because this thread inadvertently hypes every ability discussed, and I am attempting to provide a counterbalance to this perceived general attitude so that the very thing that has just happened doesn't happen. Furthermore, brilliant insight. Powers are inhe...

Re: Writing a book, tell me if you think you would read this

As your post stands, your plot has no true conflict. Obviously, I expect you will flesh this out, but without a conflict of some kind, you have no story. Also, the Tiers will inevitably become such a small aspect of your book that it really wasn't worth explaining them all. The status of those plane...

Re: Text Combat. Tricks and How To Beat Them.

The first thing I would do in playing a character that could go invisible is to first limit accessibility to the power. This can be done by requiring the use of a specific piece of equipment (as with the Starcraft Ghost's ability to cloak themselves) or a specific power that requires active concent...
