OR you could just give the PCs 10 points the fisrts five games so they grow to one hundred and fifty point quickly.Samurai007 wrote:I am using PL10, but with only 100 points. Thus, characters could have a few powers at +10, or more powers at lower level, but they won't be able to max out everything like you can with 150 points. Each 10 PP will add a PL, though, so advancement will be a bit faster.

OK, abit off-topic, and I do apologize, but...
...what exactly IS Ultimate-style? I know it refers to a particular line of Marvel comics, but what sets it apart?

That's just an example. A lot of the players wanted to play their favorite characters but we didn't want to be constrained by continuity. I also wanted to start them off at a relatively low level (default PL 10), so getting the characters near the start of their careers was a plus. The Ultimate Superman right now isn't nearly as powerful as the canon Superman...his powers may even be somewhat different (they're not too different, if I recall the write-up we did--he just doesn't have reporter skills, etc.).
Taliesin Reborn wrote:Thus, Superman is still a character derived from a science fiction origin and is a Kryptonian rocketed to Earth from his dying planet. However, the player and I (as the GM) talked over what would have happened if this had happened in a more modern era. We decided that there was no way the government didn't find the shuttle, take the infant Kryptonian, and proceed to conduct tests on him for the next 25 years...ironically deep underground where he isn't exposed to yellow sunlight.
Nick Fury, is the Ultimates leasion. So, tough but fair.Mysterious Stranger wrote:I'm don't entirely hold with the traditional comic book thesis of "government is evil and will always do the most corrupt thing in any situation", though I'm have no idea if Ultimates maintains that tack.
