    Lady Gaga: superhero or villain? And what powers does she have? Discuss.

  2. John says:

    The Awesomenicity of Sci Fi’s Battlestar Galactica goes to 11. Discuss.

    It be cool if you could have a contest where the judge worked at a comic company like marvel or DC, and the winner of his choosing gets his own title or a guest appearence in another title…I know that probably won’t happen but it be cool.

  4. Anarchangel says:

    @Aaron – That would be cool but highly unlikely.
    @Jeff – Random question. I know this question was asked before but I can’t remember your answer. At some point would you be able to separate the Male Standard legwear into top and bottom parts so we can position characters in poses without so much hassle?

  5. Jeff Hebert says:

    @Anarchangel: Yes, that needs to happen at some point.

    I’ve occasionally had some problems whenever I try to do multiple Backgrounds. I’ve had the program stop on me a couple of times when I have about 4 Backgrounds and then I try to load the Background-Shapes. The program will just stay at 100% completion without changing at all.

    I’ve noticed the save feature seems to be working a lot better. Great job Jeff.

    I think after the instruments should be armor. Armor selections are extremely limited right now. I’ve had a hard time making many good Fighters because there just isn’t enough options.

  7. cavalier says:

    Lady Gaga is an anti-hero, with the power to cause shock/awe.

    In RPG terms it’s a mental ‘stun’ attack, with a variable area of affect. It takes extra time to prepare but is fully useble once prep is finished, requiring consumable supplies to prepare. It gains a power bonus with gestures and/or speech.

    She has advantages/disadvantages include ‘Distinctive Features,’ ‘Public Identity,’ ‘Wealth,’ ‘Reputation,’ and ‘Followers.’

    Who can guess what system I’ve played? I might pull my books out and try a write-up.

  8. Niall Mor says:

    @Runt: Lady Ga Ga: Villain, most definitely. She has the ability to turn the brains of her listeners to mush. She makes Madonna seem cerebral and sophisticated.

    Super Hero Books

    Anyone read any? I don’t really collect comics anymore, but still enjoy the genre (lOl Obviously since I’m here….). I’ve read devils cape, and a couple of the batman books; Fear and No Mans Land.

    Anyone? Anything? Death of Superman Novel? Knightfall? Santa Olivia? Nobody Gets the Girl?

    Looking for some recommendations before I buy.

    Lady Gaga… super villain! Her name would be “Fashion Disaster”. With her god-awful outfits and mind-numbing music, she plans to further her plans of the total destruction of music and good taste in general. Earth’s only hope against this threat… Christopher Walken!

    Him and Will Shatner should do a duet together. That would be comic gold!

    One final thought, Edward Norton said that the possibility of an Incredible Hulk sequel is up to the fans. Anyone else wanna see Ed and company back in action? I would, if anything to see Leader and perhaps the live action version of She-Hulk.

    @Jeff I must ask out of curiosity, what’s next on the HM3 list? Cause I really hope it’s Fantasy Armor cause I’ve got plenty of ideas for fantasy clothing all due thanks to Dragon Age: Origins and Neverwinter Nights.

    P.S. I think I asked you in another thread, but I think saw that you played Dragon Age. If I must Inquire, what are your thoughts about the game? Did you love it or hate it?

    P.S.S. Dudes, Lady Gaga is totally a hero; Albit strange are her ‘methods’. I just like to think of her as what if someone crossed Madman, Plastic Man, and every other bad bright colored superhero costume from the eighties… I’m looking at you Archangel, your costume was horribad!…. (And yes I just made that word up 😉 )

    Lady Gaga Is Not A Villian, Nor A Hero. He’s A MAN! Dun Dunn Dunnnn

  13. Jeff Hebert says:

    @Darth_Neko (11): I am currently working on musical instruments in theory, though in reality I’ve been catching up on contest prizes and doing some redesign work for UGO. Armor does seem to have support, though, maybe I will go to that.

    I loved Dragon Age. Played it through completely once, almost all the way another time, and four or five partials, including one solo effort. Best RPG I’ve played in quite a while, highly recommended.

  14. Connor S. says:

    Lady Gaga is a hermaphrovillain! She has a well… you know… and she is… well, you know. 😛 I think her power would be super-poker face, and an ability to be an awesome paparazzi. Paparazzies are EVIL!!!! (If I spelled that right lol)
    @Darth: I think that you may have gotten the word root from Shaquille O’ Neal’s word, “horri-awful” 😉

  15. Anarchangel says:

    Jeff, I don’t know why I never noticed this before but in the body section you have separate upper legs but no lower legs.

  16. Jeff Hebert says:

    I know, it’s a little screwy. I fixed it in the Alternates, but I haven’t gone back and updated the Standard set completely.

    Tops Female Tech! Those poor girls are getting shot full of holes!

  18. JR says:

    @DB ozy ozzy!

  19. Tim says:

    Everyone knows Lady GaGa is actually Michael Jackson!!! lmao

    (BTW I’m also digging some female armor :D)

  20. Demented The Clown says:

    The Real Michael Jackson Died Years Ago. He Was Never White. It Was All George Bush Sr.’s Fault. Its In The Book.

  21. @cavalier: don’t care want anybody says, GURPS is the best RPG except… Champions / HERO system is more in tune than GURPS Supers when it comes to the genre.

    HeroMachine makes creating GURPS characters that much more fun.

    Lady GaGa is a super-villain with the power to hide the Adam’s Apple.

    My cat eats donuts.

    Can anyone recommend a good vehicle designer along the lines of HM? I’d love to create starships and such.

    @Jeff: Love HM3. Thanks.

    whats the new contest?

  23. Jeff Hebert says:

    Kyle, you can get to all the contest posts, including the latest one, by clicking on the “contests” up there in the right column at the top, under “Quick Links”. It’s announced every Monday.
