RPG Story: Chadwick Strongpants

  • Published on Feb 8, 2019
  • This story is from a game of Mutants and Masterminds, which is another tabletop RPG like Dungeons and Dragons, but it focuses on making superheroes instead of an adventurer. This story is about my brother and getting him into tabletop RPGs and that one time he couldn't make a superhero in time for the game, but I made one for him instead. Enjoy!

    Gather around children to hear the tale of the Manse of Choking Ivy an epic HQ that totally wasn't powered by the souls of orphans!
    My characters backstory was she was the only survivor of the Clovis Extinction Event in the Americas and she basically only survived by agreeing to protect the earth from cosmic horrors for the cthonic horror that created the earth as a snack when enough sapient and sentient life made it worth the effort to breach into our reality
    The character was a bad ass normal with fast reincarnation and everything else dropped into the HQ, it had literally every power in the book at PL and was essentially a series of magically connected rooms spread around the earth
    It's teleport gate was limited to doors so I could step through any doorway and exit any other door in reality and that's both the security system and the summon power
    So in fights I would open doors and attacks or monsters or floods, whatever would come rushing to engage the foes
    I seeded doorways around the solar system and was even launching doors into deep soace
    (I know this sounds OP but I was playing with a bunch of noobs and mainly just didn't use my HQ unless it was to fill holes the party lacked and just acted as the face most of the time)
    Man I miss that game it was weird, later I played a cosmic powered martial artist with MPD or whatever it's called now and basically was the support class that debuffed enemies by showing them that reality was an illusion and they didn't actually exist lol

    I'd like to think Chadwick Strongpants' superpower is the stories about him. The legends told by people and his ineffable "rep sheet" of heroics and powers. He's so revered nobody even dares to threaten him, because no one would die the most painful way: the Chadwick Strongpants way!!!

    i have to tell that i watched all your videos like in one day i was ill or something, and i loved every one of them, also went to watch dingo doodles vids once i finished yours, mnm im actually reading perdido street station, first time reading mieville (first time reading him, i know him for the tv show the city and the city) and i wondered if you have ever or if even if its a thing that role play on that setting mieville created.

    Using XP to choose powers? That is very similar to Triten Gaming System. Im sorry but you gotta realize (whether this story is exaggerated or not) you cant force siblings to do stuff with you. I tried to do different things with my bro and if he is not interested I won't force him too.
    The one time i forced my brother to play the Universal Fighting Game card game it was not worth the agony over it. To be fair as long as you didnt physically hurt him to get him into thats fine but be better at being GM.

    Dumb question. I've loved your videos and have been able to relate with many of your points in them, but i'm curious to hear more about your past experience on the Star Wars Rpg stories, and ur opinions on the systems and such. I'm wanting to get into them and would love to hear more about them.

    One of the Palladium games has something similar - Nega Psychics. They're people who have psychic powers, but don't believe that things like psychic powers, magic, monsters, etc. actually exist. There's always some other explanation for it, in their mind. But they are psychics all the same. And all that energy creates a nullifying field that makes it so everyone else's powers don't work as well (or at all.) Thus confirming to them that these things do not exist.
    The only down side is if they eventually come to realize this stuff *does* actually exist, they automatically and instantly lose all their powers.

    I've been trying to get into Mutants and Masterminds for so long. It is just super confusing to me and your brief look into it almost covered how to make a character in a perfectly understandable way. If you made a character creation explanation video it would be perfect.

    To be fair, if my DM came up with Chadwick Strongpants in a list of characters in Mutants and Masterminds, I would pick him. The idea of having a completely normal powerless superhero with a huge fame for being unstoppable it's just too tempting. For a moment I thought you would make him have just "extreme luck" as a superpower, like everything around him goes fine and the enemies kill themselves with freak accidents...

    Does this system have a "reputation" ability or some such. Everyone you meet has heard of your impressive deeds and treats you like a hero and savior, but essentially it's a bunch of paid off reporters and bartenders who have been spreading false rumors of your prowess?

  • Ihate You
    Ihate You 3 days ago

    mutants and masterminds is a fun concept, but utterly unbalanced, especially with the extended book. I think my favorite combo is powersuit + luck manipulation + clones. the powersuit gets you stats at a 3 for 5 deal, the clones make you immortal and the luck manipulation allow your clones to deal with the fact that someone can take 10 rather than roll against them, which becomes a worse idea the higher the power level goes. Otherwise you stat resistances and feats.
    Second favorite is 1 rank in everything and then boost 5 (the boost that costs 5 a rank not five ranks in boost) with the advantage that your boost runs out all at once. Step two is to then make get enhanced ability in every stat, drain, and then get boostable gear with enhance ability in every stat so that you have max in every stat for your power setting. The jankyness of it is a bit obvious though. It gets a little fuzzy when you start boosting immunity and suddenly you go from a guy that was immune to disease to a guy that is immune to the concept of physical damage or magical damage depending on who you are fighting, or when you go from a guy that can enter the ethereal plane to one that can cross space time and explore the ten dimensions. But its pretty easy for your dm to quickly see what is going on and boost is generally a gm only power so its not like the game turns a complete blind eye.That being said not to give people idea's but the easiest way to circumvent that is to make a power absorption character and wait for your dm to accidentally put boost in the game.
