    Why do we need a "class"? Maybe make a "background" trait and they get a bonus on a stat. I figured you can have a lot of different background(s) like soldier, wizard, street urchin, far traveler and alchemist for some examples.

    Heroica RPG 2.0

    You mean like the flying spaghetti monster? I also heard Elsa form Frozen has been used for a deity. Plus their has been some other "crazy" characters used for deities for D&D games. I think something like this could work, but not to sure about "modernize" the old gods. It doesn't seem necessary, was Thor "modernize" in the marvel movies? It kinda sounds like this could be like the flying spaghetti monster as he is basically spouse to be invisible in reality. And it is supposed to be upon you (or whoever) to prove that he does not exist. Some points on these traits. On Hardy it says "Star system" shouldn't it be "ecosystem"? If you think about Earth their is some harsh places and some nice places. On Logical it states "does not experience emotions" I was thinking it should say " does not normally experience emotions". But it might just me watching to many sci-fi TV shows / movies. For Polymeliac I had an idea for a humanoid character that "rides" around in a Exosuit. Would they qualify for this ability? For Telepathic, if a robotic creature used a "radio" is used to communicate with each other. But "regularly" with everyone else would it still be Telepathic? This is more in general should the term "race" be used? I think something more broad be used like species or creatures. Io I might be able to help? I would just need to know what the items are spouse to do.

    I guess I could try an make a character... Tester 1 (samurai-turtle) 6 lunar cycles, genderless War-Droid Vitality: 5 {Is this your HP or health points?} Strength: 1 Skill: 1 Smarts: 1 {If I wanted to get more proficiencies how much would I need to increase this by?} Spirit: 1 Proficiencies: Artillery 1, Piloting 1, Technology 1 Credits: 10 Equipment: Arm-Cannon (+1, Energy Weapon), Metallic Exoskeleton (+1, Kinetic Armor) Inventory: Nanites Repair Drones ×1 {I am just making some of this stuff up and not 100% sure what it does exactly.} So if I am reading everything right, I currently have used 7 points and have 3 points available to use on some skill(s). Plus, would Kinetic be like a bullet? And using a Energy Weapon would be similar to a Star Trek Phaser? Is "Long Weapons" different from "Artillery"?

    Well to me it seems like havIng X amount of slots for potions is the way to go. I guess you would need a "belt" to carry even more potions. So an average player can carry six potions and if they want to carry six more potions they would have to equip a "belt". DC? I guess, I am not familiar enough with the lingo to get the spell casting stuff.

    I was thinking about the "healer" issue and maybe have possible solution. I am going use the old system for convenience (and I am a little confused about any new system right now). If you rolled... A "Shield" basically everyone in the party gets fully healed. A "2" just the target gets fully healed. A "3" the target has 2/3 chance getting fully healed, otherwise only 2/3 of max health is restored. A "4" the target has 1/2 chance getting fully healed, otherwise only 1/2 of max health is restored. A "5" the target has 1/3 chance getting fully healed, otherwise only 1/3 of max health is restored. A "6", well the healer failed (probably getting hit from the enemy).

    I feel like we should do some sort of check in, to see who is still around.

    What did you buy today?

    I was at a Kroger Marketplace and found a 70651 Throne Room Showdown for $10. I figured that is a good price for a set with 221 pieces (and five mini-figures). Some of those mini-figures are rare characters like Harumi, Samurai X and Skylor (I believe only the second time she showed up on a set) also Lloyd and Nya come in the set.

    What was the last movie you watched?

    Rewatching a movie I haven't seen in a long time. Since I got the thing on DVD a couple of days ago, Robin Hood: Men in Tights (a Mel Brooks film). Like all of Brooks films it is packed with jokes (some of them might be outdated for today). But you will probably laugh a few times during the film.

    What did you buy today?

    Fine, I will do it, since I have this set. It is designed to able rearrange or expand, because Technic system was built in like some of the older castle sets. Plus the dragon that comes with the set is not to bad (but that is just my opinion). For the price it doesn't sound to bad, but I got the set for $50 from Walmart back in the day, so I might not be the best authority on that point. Now back to main point of this thread, I got another collectable mini-figure (series 19) the bike lady, the other day.

    Need Input ...

    I would find out if he just wants something Ghostbusters. Because if he does Playmobil had some set out more recently and I am guessing better priced.

    [MOC] Caronte spaceship

    Maybe that is the point, their is nothing wrong with it. You are looking for some flaw that is not their, now a few years down the road their might be some new part you want to try to incorporate into the model. But this is just future speculation. Now, I am starting to think this could of been put into the "town section" and got more of a response you are looking for. I am thinking it gets more traffic than the sci-fi section. And like I said this does look more modern than some of the more "standard sci-fi stuff" that shows up around here.

    [MOC] Caronte spaceship

    Fine if you want something, it could be because it is a boring subject matter. When their is a ton of cool looking spaceships, a "modern day" space station does not seem that interesting. Not to mention this part of the site might not be that busy. Next thing the staff just don't want one word comments, you know like "that's awesome". Plus, it probably not help that you are begging for comments. I posted stuff that got zero comments, so you are doing better than me in some ways. I guess the best way to look at it is people are looking at your stuff, and if they are not saying anything or complaining it can't be all bad.

    [MOC] Microscope Transformer from Set 70842: Emmet's Couch Mech

    Not to get to far off topic but, blame the original toys from Japan. Hasbro grabbed whatever line of "transforming" toy they could and marketed here in USA. I am sure their is more information online if you want to learn more check it out... Now to get back on topic. I was thinking like the original transformers most had a second color / character and this model could have the same thing, if someone really wanted to do something like that.
  14. Yes, the chameleon are different the most obvious difference would be the head. The Friends/Disney Princess chameleon head is bigger and wider than this new one. I am going to let someone else answer if their is any other difference(s) between the two molds.
  15. The new chameleon is about the size of a 1×3 brick. So you could make a small cage to trap it if you want to do something like that. The chameleon attaches to stud in the middle, but the tail can get in the way of another stud top. If you are going to angle the creature for whatever reason.
