So first we have Rees' asset example:


Next we have Mike's Asset example:


In this example, Daredevil is in a bad situation, trapped underwater by Stilt-Man. Rolling against the Doom Pool, he tries to create an asset. He is successful, and manages to create, 'Puncturing Glass Bottle', which he is able to use to damage Stilt-Man's hydraulics!

Finally we have my example:

Damage Control Issue 3: You Want Live? We Got It!

January 11th, 2013



Hey folks, it's that time of the month again. This time around we have a special treat for you. We have Issue 3 which was recorded live at InfrnoCon, over at We had a lot of fun and we hope you enjoy it as well.

Instead of a set topic in each segment, we do a more freeform discussion within each segment. In the mechanics segment we talk about our favorite mechanics in the game, and ask our guests what they think.

Next we go to the Marvel Lore segment, and we talk about what is making us excited currently in the world of Marvel Comics.

Finally, we have a full on 'In-Play' segment, where my co-hosts and our special guests from the convention go up against a Rampaging  Hulk.

Besides myself and my two usual co-hosts, we are joined by two con attendees, Eric & Robyn, as well as one of my co-hosts from the Super Sonic Super Show, Hunter.

Mike plays Daredevil, Rees plays Mr Fantastic, Eric plays Thor, Robyn plays Ms Marvel, & Hunter takes on the role of Spider-Man.

 Can these New York state of mind Heroes keep a Rampagin Hulk from destroying Central Park? Listen to this issue of Damage Control to find out!

Issue 2 Extras: Secret Wars Thing

December 7th, 2012


Finally is my favorite man-monster, The Thing!  I reflected his power fluctuation with a Limit of Power Loss, that can be recovered either with an opportunity or during a transition scene.  I love the Thing, and I hope you'll love my Secret Wars Thing. Enjoy!

Issue 2 Extras: Secret Wars Spider-Man

December 7th, 2012


Now we come to Spider-Man in the Secret Wars. I tried to give you two options with the datafile. It starts as the classic Red & Blue Suit Spider-Man, but I added an option for when the Watcher wants to introduce the Black Suit as an Unlockable, and how it would work. I hope you find it useful and enjoy it!

Issue 2 Extras: Secret Wars Colossus

December 7th, 2012


Next up is Colossus from Secret Wars. I try and reflect the fact that he is torn about his feelings for Kitty Pride & Zsaji. I gave him a SFX that lets you use emotional stress to get a surge of extra power by using your emotional stress(caused by his love problems maybe? :D ) in your die pool. I also tried to reflect his getting injured and them having trouble healing him with the limit of Difficult Recovery. Anyway, look it over and enjoy!
