He looks pretty solid to me!

It looks like he'll be a fun foe to meet on the battlefield :twisted:

Benton, i believe he looks menacing!!!! Definitely a tough match for the X-men. Have you checked your e-mail? I have sent you the second batch of hfs. Any time you need me to start the strings, just hit me  ;)

Thanks guys!  Yep Jim, and thanks!

So, here's a new one.  Just how tough is classic, Bronze Age Nova?  He's fought with Thor in my collection and taken on some heavy weights, but I am having a hard time deciding how to represent his durability.

:EDIT: And another: I'm trying to decide how to tweak the excellent Silver Surfer Jimaras sent me.  What do y'all's look like?  Specifically, what kinds of attacks do you give him?

Benton 1970 Nova without the full use of the nova force is a little less tougher than Ms Marvel just to give you an example. I thought i had sent you a classis Nova hero file hadn't i? Anyway, yes he could stand his ground against someone like Thor for a while but in no way will be able to defeat hm. His strength and endurance in his normal state (not Prime state) are about 6.

Thanks Jim!  Yes, you did send me a good HF, but I always try to wrap my head around who the character is so that I can tweak and balance them.  I need to understand the character if I am going to be able to fit them into the mod properly.  :)

The only thing I can really think of that's always been a SHIELD staple is the LMD. That's been a part of SHIELD history for as long as I can remember.

For particularly difficult missions, give the agent the Russian Doll attribute to simulate all of the LMDs he might have to go through to finish the objective.

I do believe I may be able to help you out there, Benton. II have a vast library of HF that have been made available over the years so let me go through my list and I'll send a few of them to you.

So guys, if I'm including the comic Guardians of the Galaxy Star Lord, should he have the element gun or just general sci-fi weaponry?  I've never read those comics.

And here's a second question.  Does anyone have a good herofile for Black Mamba of the Serpent Society?  I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around her powers.

Definitely at yes for Starlord's elemental gun. Gives him variety and a different move set compared to Rocket Raccoon.

Also, for Black Mamba, if I remember right, she works with Illusionary Darkforce Projections to tangle people up and start draining their life.  So ranged grapples and life drain attacks seem appropriate, to me.

Oh yes, the darkforce powers.  I remember requesting a dark cloud mesh that could be used as a summoned creature, but never got a chance to try & get it working.  Let me know if you want to give it a go, and I'll dig out that cloud to send you (although, I'm sure it's not too difficult to make a new one).

Alright, here's a new one.  I want to create some AIM troopers.  I'm looking to give them some weird, off the wall experimental weaponry to differentiate them from Hydra and all the other ray-gun toting minions out there.  Do y'all have any suggestions for some powers that would be fun, gameplay-wise, but also different and effective?  Ideally, I'd want to them to balance relatively well against Hydra, who are just straight damage dealers with beam and projectile attacks, but I'd like for AIM to be more focused on unusual attacks.

On an unrelated note, what do your Forge HFs look like?  I'm looking for clever ideas for attributes, especially.

Oh, so many ideas.

Stolen / poorly replicated Pym Particles - shrinks the target beyond usefulness (exile?)
anti-grav beam - (see Alchemiss' Aloft)
bad luck stimulator (genetic damage/hex?)
crystal growth (stasis with one of the crystal prisons)

I'm sure more odd ideas will rattle loose given time.

I am glad you asked. I am an expert on Ms. Braddock. It depends on what era of NinjaPsylocke's psychic knife we are talking about really. So my personal favorite is early 90's Psylocke where her psychic knife is totality of her telepathic power. While it does no physical damage, it can stun, mentally blank, heal, and kill an individual. It shouldn't have any physical impact on the physical world during this era. Other than that she is a high-level telepath, not on Jean's level but definitely could take her down a room full of ninja. I like to think of her as Elektra with a psychic knife, a few mental distractions (to confuse enemies, Psylocke has always been good at this even before becoming a ninja), and a lot of close up fighting moves.

Okay, clearly I've come to the right place here, AA.  Thanks, that's already begun to clear some things up.  So, building her, she needs a mental blank attack with the knife, but also perhaps a mental damage swap?

Then she should have some of the standard ranged mental attacks, rage, panic, etc?

I've got the ninja skills down, I think.

Would you like to write Psylocke's bio for the mod, AA?  Her history is...difficult to summarize. ;)

The mod is set in the Bronze Age, but I'm playing fast and loose with continuity.
