Awesome game! Love the direction of the story so far, love the characters, just a damn fine game all-around.
Question: Is torch light a “big damn hero”? Cause recently…..
Little fact about me: I grew up in a town that had an active dog food factory. The smell was notoriously bad.
So, my Z list lair: the subbasement of an (at the time) active dog food factory. “Not only does it have freeway access, generic uniformed personnel going in and out at all hours, but the smell will be the perfect cover any number of plots that you might cook up”.
My lair is under the public restroom of the city park. My agent convinced me by saying, “All kinds of people passing through here, hiding in plain sight, and let’s face it, would YOU want to poke around a public bathroom?”. What she failed to mention is that the sewage pipes go right over the main work area, and let’s just say the city hired the cheapest plumbers.
Being as I am The Trawlerman a sea bound villain dedicated to trawling up lost weapons of the Atlantans, my realtor suggested a sea based lair called bull sand fort.
Sadly being down wind of both Grimsby and Hull means the place either stinks of fish or john Prescotts Cornish pasties. That and the fact I have to share it with the drug rehabilitation centre…
Oh and the Humber is so polluted it has its own mutant Eco system…
Fear my net of evil!
Regarding exploding dice, I did these calculations awhile back with Deadlands Reloaded which has exploding dice from d4-d12. The average always increases as you go up a die type still, so you want to roll larger dice, they just explode less often. As a result the bump is more noticable the lower you start from, but it doesn’t make a die type better. The exploding average of a d4 goes from 2.5 to 3 1/3, while the base average of a d6 is 3.5 so it’s still better to roll a d6.
Damn does it feel good when a die explodes though.
Oh, and my supervillain lair on a budget:
At a university, there is a boarded up room in the old, half-renovated Computer Science department building that was scrapped in favour of a much newer, high-tech facility. From within these forgotten walls lurks The Auditor!
He who drifts from class to class, stealing the latest in cutting-edge research from established professors, possessing an abundance of test subjects in the form of twenty-something upper middle class students on whose backs the entire discipline of Psychology is based on, and hundreds of people exposed to new ideas for the first time, and think nothing of donning garish costumes and holding up major metropolitan areas in the name of some “Flash Mob” or whatever the Hell that is. When the “Heroes” come for me, I merely need to shout about my civil rights being oppressed and all of Facebook will be crying out for my release within hours until someone posts a cat video! I shall be unstoppable!
Also the student union is just two blocks away and their food court is great.
Ship, the rusted out hulk of the darkwind passage. A massive tanker drifting around the Atlantic ocean. Its quiet, secluded and bonus; the mutant rats eat all of the zombie floaters she drifts into. I was just planning to lay low after that thing in Rio but well… zombies. I don’t know if I will ever see land and I don’t know if I want to.
It gets so lonely out here that sometimes even the mermaids look inviting… no; that way lies madness. Best not; Damn you MOSSIAK, DAMN YOU; Now I can never enjoy the little mermaid again.. I think sometime that even I the Hooligan would go crazy from the solitude but for the companionship of my trusty partner and beloved murderball Wilson.
