Him, I was just briefing over the villians and I just discovered something?
Cardiac left out Triple Threat? :eek: Guess I've got one more to do.
And I also noticed some people asked about the Crime Masters. Guess I'll

TRIPLE THREAT

Special Powers (applicable to all three entities)

1. Physical Transformation. Any of the three entities can take control of William in an
instant. When this happens, William physically transforms into the appearance of the controlling
entity (clothes and all), complete with that being’s hit points, S.D.C., skills, personality, and
powers. In each case the William’s attributes change to reflect the controlling entity. This
means William is actually four different people.

2. Switching Places. The three entities can swap places at will (counts as one melee
action/attack). When one entity retreats inside William he allows one of his fellow entities to
take his place. Once the host body is under its control, the body again transforms into the
appearance of the entity controlling it. Each entity has its own hit points, S.D.C., and powers,
to any damage the previous entity suffers will not reflect on the new entity. This damage will
also not reflect on William unless one of the entities was to be killed.

The ability to switch places and physically transform also give the entities the power to
seemingly disappear by ducking out of sight and turning into someone else. Of course they hide
inside William at any time and Mr. Stone will have no idea of what is going on. Anytime one of
the entities suffer critical damage, like having 12 hit points or less, he will automatically
retreat inside William, releasing one of the others or even William, himself.

3. Different Entity-Previous Body. When one of the entities first takes control of the host
body, he can for 2D4 minutes, retain William’s appearance or of the previous controlling entity,
even though it is a different entity wit the new being’s fresh hit points, I.S.P., P.P.E., S.D.C.,
power, and personality.

4. Regenerating Hit Points. Hit points and S.D.C. regenerate at the rate of 2 each hour
the entity is not in control of the host body. I.S.P and P.P.E. regenerate at the rate of 10 per
hour when not the controlling entity. Hit Points, I.S.P., P.P.E., and others regenerate at the
normal rate when the entity is the one in control of the host body.

5. Magic Aura. Each of the entities generates a different magic aura. It is this aura,
which causes the physical transformation and provides some additional S.D.C. protection.
Furthermore, the ability to see aura will show only the aura of the controlling entity and the
presence of supernatural evil. All the other aura (including William’s) are obscured by the
current dominant force. Note: If the aura is damaged, it slowly restores itself at the rate of 5
S.D.C. per hour. Even if the entity retreats into William’s body, the aura can only be restored at
5 S.D.C. per hour. Destroying the aura has no direct effect on the physical transformation of the
entity controlling William’s body or the others inside.

Equipment and vehicle:
Mindstone has developed a number of drugs which he has perfected since their initial creation
(thanks in part to recent developments in chemical engineering and technology). He openly sells
these drugs to the criminal underworld. He has yet to work out a deal with Fabricator Inc who
wants to sell them worldwide. Of course, he has yet to warn anyone of the drugs unpleasant
side effects. The cost is $300,000 for single dose. The psionic creation drug $750,000 for a
single dose. Anyone and everyone can use these drugs. So far, Mindstone is the only individual
who make these drugs.

Adrenalin drug: Equivalent to the minor super powers Adrenaline Surge (PU 1) and Healing
Factor. Same limitations & penalties. This drug can be taken twice per 24 hours. Prolonged use,
10+1D6 doses, will permanently reduce P.E. by 1D4 points and cause insomnia (has difficulty
sleeping, restless, and edgy).

Anti-aging drug: Equivalent to the minor super powers of Alter Physical Body and
Longevity. The effect last for 2D4+5 hours. The drug can be taken twice per 24 hours. The
shots must be done in the face in order for the power to take effect. Prolonged used, 8+1D6
doses, causes facial features to sag and warp until the face becomes limp and droopy. -6 to P.B.
or reduce by half, whichever is greater. These effects are permanent.

Super Steroid: Equivalent to the minor super powers of Superhuman P.S., Hardened Skin,
Increase Durability, and Extraordinary P.E. This drug last for 1D6+1 hours and can be taken as
often as needed. Prolonged use 1D6+1D6 doses, eventually causes cellular breakdown in the
body’s muscle tissue causing them deteriorate. Not all of the body’s muscles are destroyed, but
enough to result in the permanent loss of 75% of one’s S.D.C. and 50% of the person’s Hit
Points, P.S. and P.E. The individual’s natural immune system is permanently weakened: -4 to
save vs poisons, drugs, toxins, and disease, and injuries take twice as long to heal.

Psionic susceptibility drug: The drug makes its subjects more likely to influenced by mind
control and psionic influences. –4 to save vs psionic attacks and mind control and no other
bonuses, even attribute bonuses, apply: only the natural, unmodified roll of the dice. The
effects and duration of affliction of any mind control or psychic influence (empathy, empathic
transfer, hypnotic suggestion, mind bond, mental possession, mind wipe, telepathy, et cetera)
last twice as long (doubled). Prolonged use, 8+1D6 injections, reduces the subject’s M.E. and/or
I.Q. by one point. 16+2D6 doses is likely (1-60%) to make the subject permanently more
susceptible to psionic or mind control attack (-3 to save) and effect and duration of affliction
are increased by 50%.

Psionic booster drug: This drug doubles the strength/damage and duration of psionic
powers and increase psionic attack strength by 1. Duration of the booster drug’s effects is an
unstable 5D6 minutes. Side-effects include terrible headaches (-2 on initiative, -10% to all skills,
and –1 to all saving throws due to the person’s inability to focus), and it takes twice as long to
regenerate the I.S.P. used while under the drug’s influence. Prolong use of the drug after
10+2D6 doses will reduce the psyhic’s M.E. by 1D4 and I.S.P. by 33%. Unfortunately, psychics
who take this drug have 01-17% of suffering the effect of drug withdrawal if they stop taking
the drug after 3 initial uses. The good news is the psychic will make a full recovery in one weeks
time if he or she goes cold turkey.

Psionic creation drug (new and improved): A powerful drug that permanently instills two
super psionic powers and 1D4+2 minor psionic powers from any of the three categories after 2D6
doses (affects everybody differently). I.S.P. is determined by M.E. number plus the roll of
1D6x10, plus 1D6+1 per each level of experience. However, the side-effects are very nasty
(can’t seem to remove them). Roll percentile dice after psionic powers are gained:

01-25 Destroys the metabolism. Death will occur in 2D6 days, during which time the victim
becomes a psychotic killer and paranoid (hurting everyone around him), or a power mad tyrant
(tries to dominate others). A massive blood transfusion within 72 hours after the last, psionic
instilling dose, accompanied by additional medical treatment (roll to save vs coma & death at
–30%), might allow the character to survive, but all psionic powers are lost.

26-40 Insane! Roll two phobias, one obsession, and one psychosis (crazy hero/villain is optional,
instead of psychosis.

41-50 Become a mental zombie, easily controlled by other psychics (like Larry Mindstone).
Permanently reduce I.Q. to 8, M.E. and M.A. to 6. Reduce the number of scholastic skills by half
(allowed to keep hand to hand combat). –3 to save vs Horror Factor, -2 to save vs illusion, -1
to save vs psionic attack and mind control, and –1 to save vs insanity and possession. –10%
penalty on the skills Find Contraband, Intelligence, and Sing. –20% on Seduction and –30% on
Interrogation. The victim receives a +5% bonus to prowl and surveillance (tends not to be
noticed or remembered). The mental zombie can function independently, but will always obey his
creator, Doctor Mindstone, and can be controlled by other psionic mind control and psychic
influences on the mind-not body (they last triple in duration and effect!!!). Tends to react to
emotional stimulation rather than logic.

51-65 Reduce I.Q. by 1D4 points, plus has trouble concentrating and remembering things; -20%
skill penalty on all skills

66-75 Plagued by constant, terrible headaches (-2 on initiative, -10% to all skills, and –1 to all
saving throws due to the person’s inability to focus) and hears voice saying thing contrary to his
alignment when under stress. Also tends to be nervous/jumpy and has trouble sleeping.

76-85 +3 to save vs psionics, horror factor, and mind altering drugs, but reduce P.S., P.P., P.E.,
and Spd to 12. Any attribute below 12 is reduce to 8 or is not affected at all.

86-00 Lucked out! No permanent side effect, but has a 01-20% chance of losing all psionic
power every 48 hours. Taking the drug again will either kill the character instantly (1-50%) or
make him impervious to all of its effects (51-00%).

Portable laboratory, portable polygraph monitor, high end laptop computer, calculator (pocket
and desk top), surgical kit (scaples), first aid kit, common drugs (sedatives, painkillers, cocaine,
etc), log books, Dictaphone, pocket cassette recorder, several high end digital cameras with
various lenses and other kinds of basic recording and lab tools. He has creation bionic implants
to measure brain activity from a distance and a portable homing device so that Charles can
track his experiments once they regain self control or escape (range 3 miles).

William’s 1988 E-250 Full size cargo van.

I can't stay away. Since they were first introduces in Skyrapers the
Blhaze to me are one of the coolest NPC and optional PCs around.
I know when Bill Coffin introduced them in CS and GI some people
where appalled. I on the other hand was thrilled. But there are some
annoying quirks about these guys that has always bothered me. And
with the release of Galaxy Guide and PU1 I figured here's a chance to
chance just a few things. So here is the Bhlaze P.C. 2.0. Enjoy :D

The Blhaze (revised and revisited)

Special Blhaze R.C.C. Mega Powers.

1. Super-Energy Expulsion: Energy and Light (Major Super Ability): Same description found in Heroes Unlimited 2nd edition (page 293). However, double the normal range (1200 ft/365.7 m) instead of 600 ft) in an atmosphere and increase range five times (3000 ft/914 m) in
outer space.

2. Super-Energy Pulse Attack (Special to Blhaze only): This is a rapid burst of energy blasts fired in a volley or rapid pulse one split second after another. This rapid-fire pulse can only be directed at one target to do significant amount of damage. Because of the rapid fire of
attack it is difficult to dodge (-3).
6D6+6, counts as a single melee attack
1D6x10, counts as two melee attacks
2D4x10, counts as three melee attacks
2D6x10, counts as four melee attacks
Range of a pulse blasts is 1200 feet (365.7 m); 4000 ft in space.

3. Energy Being: The natural state of a Blhaze is a mass of swirling rainbow colored energy that can either appear in the shape of a humanoid, spherical, star-like, or a pulsating blob. Unfortunately, remaining without a skin cover for too long results in a potentially deadly loss of control over the energy that is their body. Most Blhaze cannot hold their uncontained energy essence together for more than a few minutes. Nevertheless, because they are energy beings, they are impervious to organic disabilities (poison, drugs, disease, gases, toxins, heat, and cold). They do not need to eat or drink. While their containment skin is subject to harm (half damage) from physical and kinetic attacks (normal strength punches, kicks, melee weapons, projectiles, bullets, thrown objects), their energy essence takes 1/3 the normal damage. However, physical attacks from extraordinary, superhuman, and supernatural P.S., rain guns, and powerful explosive forces (small range missiles) inflict full damage, as does magic and psionics. The energy form of a Blhaze can hover, fly, discharge energy attacks at 50% greater range, get one extra attack per melee round, has a +2 on initiative, and communicates as usual. Blhaze can travel through any small opening large enough for light to pass through (key holes, cracks in walls, widow screens). They can also travel at the speed of light (see powers below) and accurately sense the direction of light and trace it back to its source with the base skill of 10% +5% per level of experience. The touch of a Blhaze in its energy form inflicts 1D6 points of damage to both living and inanimate objects.

4. Additional Major and Minor Super Abilities: All are available to Blhaze in any form:

Bend Light (Minor)
Energy Absorption (Major)
Frequency Absorption (Minor)
Sonic Flight (Major)
Superluminal Flight (Major/Only possible in energy form)
Supernatural P.S. (Major)
Super Vision (all)-Advance Sight, Acute Sight, Circular Vision (without the
penalty), Infrared & Ultraviolet, Nightvision, Paranormal Sight,
Thermal, X-ray, Angular Vision and Spectrum Vision (Minor).

Note: Because they have the power of energy absorption, Blhaze are impervious to heat, fire, laser blasts, particle beams, ion weapon, electricity, and other forms of energy (including sonic/sound attacks, plasma, and energy expulsion force).

5. Outer Skin: Blhaze generate an outer skin/containment suit to contain their energy essence. This skin represents their S.D.C. (not hit points). The containment skin can be regenerated at rate of 1D4x10 per melee round, but counts as one melee attack/action. When S.D.C. of the skin is reduce to half, or worst, the skin appears to be cracking like an eggshell, with several holes where energy and light can be seen, but still mostly contained, so energy is not freely shooting out of the opening and hurting those around him. Damaging the skin does not cause the energy essence any harm. When the containment skin is destroyed (all S.D.C.
is reduce to zero), the natural energy being is revealed and damage is now done to the Blhaze’s hit points. When all the hit points are destroyed, the Blhaze is seemingly vaporized. This is called energy dissipation, the scattering of the energy essence. Its an occurrence which most Blhaze cannot survive (See reforming after complete dissipation, for details). Consequently, most Blhaze will flee and try to create a new containment skin before it is to late (See Shedding energy containment skin).

Base S.D.C of the skin is P.E. x4 +20 per level of experience.

6. Recreate the Outer Casing/Skin: If the outer skin is destroyed (cannot be stolen or lost because the Blhaze can always sense and trail its exact location), the Blhaze can recreate it. The process takes 1D4+1 minutes and during its creation, the Blhaze can take no other action-it
requires his or her complete attention. Furthermore, it momentarily weaken them: Reduce attacks per melee round, Spd, and damage from energy blasts by 50% for 2D4 minutes after the skin is created.

7. Shedding energy containment skin (special). Blhaze can leave their skin for short periods of time. Three minutes per level of experience. Each melee round (15 seconds) after this period of time, the character must roll on the following table to determine if or how well he is managing to hold together.

01-33% Keeps control, no loss of energy and holds current power level.
34-66% Some loss of control, reduce hit points by 10%, reduce combat
bonuses and number of attacks by 1 point, and reduce all skill
performances by 5%
67-00% Serious loss of control. 25%, reduce combat bonuses and
number of attacks by 2, reduce range and power levels
(damage) of energy blasts, flying Spd, and P.S. by 20% (don’t
forget to reduce corresponding damage from punches/kicks),
and reduce all skill performance by 20%.

Note. All penalties are cumulative. When bonuses are reduced to zero, any further reductions become penalties (minuses) to strike, parry, etc., from the roll of the dice.

Attacks per melee round bottom out at one, P.S. at 10. Skill performance can go down to zero, making the Blhaze incapable of of doing the simplest task. When hit points are reduce to zero, the character shrinks to a dim sphere of light about the size of a baseball. He or she must return to the containment skin or die within 1D6 melee rounds. If damage is greater than zero, the character completely dissipates with little hope of reforming (see reforming after complete dissipation.

8. Reforming after complete dissipation: There is a slim chance a Blhaze can survive complete dissipation and its apparent death. This slim possibility arises from the odds that the Blaze’s energy essence was simply scattered and dispersed, rather than transformed and thus, killing them.

Success Ratio: Two percent chance of reforming per level, +10% bonus at levels 7, 14, and 21.

It takes 6D6 hours to reform. Once reformed, the Blhaze is at half power when it comes to Spd, damage from energy blasts, range, and combat, as if he were temporarily reduced in experience levels. Only skill performance is not affected. The Blhaze is in this weakened state for 2D6 days. At the end of this period the energy being recovers the equivalent of one level of experience/power per every 48 hours.

Nearly dying has a traumatic effect on a Blhaze that forever alters them. Should a Blhaze survive dissipation re-roll the M.E. and M.A. attributes. The new attribute numbers may be higher or lower than before. Reduce P.S. by 1D6; does not recover for 2D4x10 years or until a new level of experience is achieved, whichever comes first. Reduce S.D.C. by 2D4%. This is a permanent loss!

9. Superluminal Flight: Blhaze can travel at light speed and beyond, but can only do so in their energy form, so the containment skin must be shed. Take note of the dangers mentioned earlier.

10. Blhaze communicate by manipulating radio waves (see Frequency Absorption). Blhaze understand all spoken languages.

11. Achilles’ Heel/Weaknesses: The Blhaze have a few.

a) Vulnerable to magic and psionics. Magic spells, weapons, creatures of magic (dragons, the magically endowed, etc), and supernatural beings, as well as pionics inflict full damage.

b) Vulnerable to physical attacks from extraordinary, superhuman, and supernatural P.S., rain guns, and powerful explosive forces (small range missiles), they all inflict full damage.

c) They are attracted to humans and similar humanoids, but can never be truly human themselves and cannot have a physical/sexual relationship with humans or most other mortal humanoids.

Blhaze R.C.C.
Planet of Origin: Blhaze are from a different galaxy, thousands of light years away.
Alignment: Any, with scrupulous (34%), principled (29%), and unprincipled (12%) being the most common. However, not all Blhaze are heroes. Approximately 12% are anarchist, and 13% evil (any).
Gender: Although energy beings, there are Blhaze of both sexes, male and female. The outer skin always reflects the true gender of the character.
Attributes: I.Q. 2D6+9, M.E. 3D6+8, M.A. 3D6+10, P.S. 6D6+18, P.P. 3D6+8, P.E. 3D6+10, P.B. 3D6+8, Spd (running 4D6+88/flying in humanoid form: Sonic Flight 700 mph/1126 km). See Heroes Unlimited, 2nd Ed, page 289). P.S. and P.E. are supernatural.
Hit Points: P.E. x3 +2D6 per level of experience. Hit points apply only to the energy essence, so damage must either be inflicted first to S.D.C. or bypass it.
S.D.C. of Outer Skin/Shell: P.E. x4 +20 per level of experience.
Height: 6.5-7 feet (1.95 to 2.1 m) in humanoid form, and a proportional size appearance in energy form.
Weight: 50-100 lbs (22.6 to 90 kg) in humanoid form.
Average Life Span: Unknown, possibly 3000 years or several times longer.
Average Level of Experience: 1D6+5; ancient ones are 2D4+10.
Attacks Per Melee: Five physical (punch, kick, sword strike) +1 at levels 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25.
Or six energy attacks +1 attacks 3,6,9,12,15,20 and 25. (+1 attack and +2 initiative when in energy form.
Combat Bonuses (in addition to Attribute Bonuses, but includes Power Bonuses): +6 on initiative, +4 to strike/+5 in flight, +4 to parry/+5 in flight, +7 to dodge/+13 in flight/+10 when flying FTL, auto dodge (the only bonus gained is that from P.P. attribute), +2 to disarm, +2 to pull punch, and +2 to roll with punch/fall/+5 when flying FTL.
Saving Throws: +2 to recognize and save vs. illusions. +3 to save vs. Horror Factor.
Skills: Blhaze typically rely on their formidable natural abilities, cunning, and compassion rather than learning a large number of skills. Most know the following:
Basic and Advance Math (+30%), Navigation: Space (+30%),
Intelligence, Land Navigation (+20%), Navigation (+10%),
W.P. Ancient: (one of choice)
Plus 1D4+2 from any of the following Skill Categories: Communication (+5%), Electrical, Science, and Technical (no other bonuses unless its an I.Q. bonus).
Equipment: A costume, two spares, basic equipment, and some personal items. Tend to rely on natural powers.
Money: Most have no need for great wealth or material possessions, thus heroes tend to use their money to help the less fortunate. However, there are some Blhaze particularly evil rogues,
who have been known to amass vast fortunes.

while I like this entry, i think it deserves extra modifications, as several of the race's original weaknesses were just badly handled due to contradictory weaknesses from their super abiliteis.

Believe it or not I may do some more. Because I glanced at Carmen's
rough draft of PU 3 at the Open House. :shock: So I may do so more
retooling. He included even more spervisions ( :eek: ) how much better
should these guys be able to see!

No problem. They needed to make us bigger name tags. I
spent most of my time at the panels and just chatting. Although
I watched most of the Killfest and was there when APS-Stone guy
won the prize from the God of War. The whole time I was watching
I kept saying to myself, does anyon realize that this guy is
Invulnerable? On the drive back home, I was trying to think of
ways people could have taken the guy out (if and only if they'd
work together). I'll be at Gen Con, hopefully I'll see you there?
Maybe compare notes on our views of S.C.R.E.T. After the
Open House my mind is a whirl of ideas.

Okay these are not conversions to 2nd edition but tweeks that should
have happen when these powers where made into 2nd edition.

APS-Electricity when it was introduce in Justice Machine had a NAR of 14
and 150 SDC. Conventional weapons had to penetrate the NAR to do any sort of damage.
Doing phyiscal attacks caused 1D6 points of damage.
This is needed because with so many APS powers now, APS-Electricity
is the only one lacking a NAR or a limited invulnerability.

Galaxy Guide has this power allowing PC to travel through wiring and into computers.
So this power should state such an ability within electric flight.

Superhuman PS should inflict +1D6 points of damage to any physical
attack.

Animal Metamorphosis says retain own S.D.C. This is sort of vague.
When you turn into an Elephant you don't gain additional S.D.C.?
You put on 3-4 tons of mass but no additional SDC? That doesn't
make sense. So yes your S.D.C.should change. It should also stat
that one receives all the natural abilities of that animal.
You turn into a cobra yes you possess the poisonous bite of a cobra. Or turn into a
shunk and you got stink.

Control Elemental Force: FIre if you fuel flame, what sort of damage
does this do? If you quadruple the size of the flame do you a quadruple
the damage? I don't think so, but I would like to think damage is at
least doubled.

Control Elemental Force: Water replaced HU revised 1st editions ultra cool Hydrokinesis. Okay fine, but at least CEF-W should have 1st editions
Hydrokinesis Water Slam. It allowed the use to create and control wate, making it rise up like a towering hand or wall and slam down on a specific target. The user could create and control 300 gallons (a ton of water) that did 6D6 damage. In the presence of a large existance body of water,
fountain, fire hydrant, pool, lake, etc 100 additional gallons of water per level of experience could be added to inflict an additional 1D6 points of damage. Victims of a water slam are temporialy blinded by the attack,
lose 2 melee attacks, and -2 s,p,d for the rest of that round. Range
60 feet. Area Effect Individual or 12 ft radius.

Create Force Field. Bolts of force should do +1D6 per level of experience. Same an energy expulsion.

Energy Absorption in 1st edition limited individuals to P.E. x100. Afterward
you took 1/2 damage. 100 points of absorbed energy where diffused
each hour. So you absorb 300 points of energy damage, wait 3 horus and
those 300 points are gone. This made sense in first edition, don't know
why it was lost.

Gravity Manipulation-Zero Gravity are affect is to small. 6 ft per level of
experience. And believe it or not I'm not going to say you should be able to crush people to death. Sorry no way to save against that.

Growth. Strength is considered Superhuman when it comes to lifting
and carrying. Your 50 feet tall, you hand the size of a King Size bed
and you punch 1D4? That doesn't make sense. Punches should
inflict 1D6 per each 10ft of size, until you reach 50 ft. Then strength
is considered supernatural, and you add 6D6 to the superntural ps damage chart.

Intangibilty. Just say you can't let go of an object beacuse for it to
turn back to normal requires the PCs to revert back to normal.
The object and you are both intangible at the same time.
That way you can't put knives into people's body then let them go so they turn solid.

Item Reduction. If you shink a gun a .44 magnum to the size a inch tall PC can carry it,
how much damage does it do? I'd say the chart should
look like the Shrink one. 1/2 damage for 6 inches, 1/4 damage for 1 inch,
1/8 inch 1/8 damage, and spec 1/16 damage. So you try to knife someone doing 1D6 and the damage is reduce by 16.

Karmic Power should give you the option of once a day per level of
experience the ability to re-roll one dice roll regardless of the circumstance.
In other words, a guy shoot you and rolls a 16 to strike.
PC rolls a 4 and his total bonus only give him a 10. He uses his option
for a karimc re-roll, this time he gets a 12 and with bonuses he gets an
18. Now that luck! And its limited. No guarntee that it will come out better.

Magnetism. 20 lbs per level of experience? No way, 250 lbs per level of
experience. That way you can do more then lift just a car.

Natural Combat ability. This power ws fine how Aarron Oliver presented it in Rifter #1.
Now its confusing. it also provided bonuses to strike, parry, and dodge!!!

+3 attacks per melee (2 to start plus 3)
+3 strike
+4 to parry
+6 to dodge
+3 to pull punch
Auto Parry
Kick 2D4
Backflip 75% plus 5 per level
Knockout/Stun 19-20.
Jump Kick
Jump 10 up and 15 long. plus 2 per level.

2nd +3 to roll
3rd +2 strike, +3 parry/dodge
4th +4 damage, Judo Flip
5th +1 attack
6th +3 parry/dodge, entangle
7th Paired Weapons
8th +1 attack
9th Leap Attack and +2 Entangle
10th Critical 18-20.
11th +4 damage.
12 +3 parry/dodge
13 Knockout/stun 16-20
14 +1 attack
15 Deathblow on natural 20.

You could still have the HF and Possession and mind control bonuses.
And the ability to pick up any weapon and get +2 strike, parry, throw or aim and burst.

Slow Motion Control. Should also affect the dice roll by 1/2. You roll a
18 but its really a 9. This will have a true effect on all NPC especially normal ones,
who if have no combat bonuses the power doesn't
really hinder them.

Sonic Absorption should provide a prowl bonus since you reducing the noise you could make. At least 20%

Sonic flight. Get rid of that stupid sonic flying ram and two fisted one.
It makes no sense. You have Wingless Flight and fly 220 mph into someone you do +44 points of damage.
You do sonic flight and go 400 mph and do 1D4x10 :x Use the same rule, only keep the damage it inflicts.

Spin at high velocity should inflict an additional 1D6 to weapons that are thrown.

Super Energy Expulsion. Just keep saying 1D6x10+1D6 per level of experience.
GM and PC should be able to figure out simpliar ways or reducing the damage.

Teleport. If you die if you teleport into solids, you can't teleport into
water/liquids either. If you do, you either add liquid mass or displace it.

Hey if you got tweeks of your own let's see them. But let try to keep it
to the powers of the main book. This is about conversions
to 2nd edition. :)

Just got a hold of PU-3 and wouldn't you know it. Two more supervision powers, so that means
the Blhaze also has Super Vision: Angular
Vision and Spectrum Vision. As I look over this book, I'm trying to see
if something else should be added. Nothing strike out at me except
Energy Conversion. APS-Energy Being could be the new standard for
these guys, but then it would take away their outer skin feature. So
I'm pretty happy with the Bhlaze as they are. But does this mean
altering anyone else just because PU3 came out? Unless someone else
has something really different, I don't think so. Although Rocket Charge would be cool for a Master of Speed.

You know, if Palladium wanted to make a quick buck and please fans with a better re-hash of VU, they'd do some copy/pasting, send out some checks to the contributors here, ditch of few of the lamer villains and replace them with a handful of newbies, maybe add some new artwork, and *poof* new release! It would seriously only take a handful of days worth of work. And it would make me happy.

This thread is great. I can't believe the effort that has been gone to by Cardiac...this SHOULD be a book.

If we make enough noise, we might be able to get it to happen.

What does everyone else think?

I agree but unfortunately the characters are the creation of Kevin Long
with a little tweeking and development by the real Kevin. So the
characters are kind of stuck the way they are (although rather annoying).
When I did my revision of S.C.R.E.T the orignal concept is the same,
all I did was add new stuff and update stuff that was stuck in the 1st
edition. So unfortunately the versions Cardiac and I did are as good
as it gets, unless one day the two Kevin become the best of
friends again. Its the same thing with Justice Machine,
nothing of that book is even owned by Palladium so no part of the book even revisions
on the board can be done :( . So trust me I feel your pain.

So sad...what happened with Kevin Long? There seems to be several past contributors that aren't on 'working' terms with Palladium anymore...

He and Kevin (the true Kevin) had a falling out of sorts some time around
93 or 94. The problem most of the time is people forget everything
about Palladium is Kevin's creation. We're all just along for the ride.
Even those who write stuff for Palladium, it belongs to Kevin. It like
Star Wars, Lucas owns all of it and there are certain rules you have to obey
if you want to play in the universe. Same thing applies to Palladium.

:shock: Interesting concept. I also thought about a mega villian Onslaught with Invulnerability and Massive Damage Capacity.

Or Fullborne with Rocket Charge and Invulnerability :demon:

Here's one Self Explosion with Adhesion :lol:

I'm trying really hard not to start changing people again.

Actually, I was thining he'd make a nasty Eugenic guy.

Hey Reagren Wright,

I have the book Gramercy Island and fell in awe at the power and abilities of the Monster known as The DENIZEN. This brute is the ultimate villan in most of my campaigns and my PC's absolutly love to battle this freak,my question to you and all my dudes at the Palladium Megaverse is can you guys give more on this freak on nature and his origin, how many more are left in the universe other than the one on earth and (if) does the Atorians hold one or maybe even about the creatures who created this monster.

Pretty much all that is known of Denizen is what is in the book. Nothing else about him/her/it is printed anywhere else.

What do you mean that guy is a main bad guy for your campaigns?
The Denizen? Mr. 132 Supernatural PS with Invulnerabilty? Your
guys are gluttons for punishment.

Did you happen to read the 101 ideas. Number 101 is three more
Denizens coming to free their brother. Try that for an idea.

Here's one Self Explosion with Adhesion :lol:

I'm trying really hard not to start changing people again.

Actually, I was thining he'd make a nasty Eugenic guy.

You forgot the Acidic Blood with that Adhesion/Self Exploding combo. That would be cool yet strangly groosom.

When Patheons of the Megaverse came out in 94, Heroes Unlimited existed in 1st edition
revised. There are a number of HU generated characters in the book who work great as Rifts
characters, but now that HU is in 2nd edition (2.5 if you count all the Powers Books),
those characters don't exactly convert the way they should and evenless if you turn them back
into Heroes. So in my typical fashion I've decided to convert the HU generated guys into 2nd
edition. Enjoy.

CUPID
A member of the Terlin race, Cupid loves to cause trouble on a grand scale. At his whim, nations
will fall and countries will go off to war, and all because of love. Whenever he becomes involved
in making love affairs, they go badly, and if they don’t he makes sure they do. He enjoys the
fact that the universe of Heroes Unlimited does not necessary have individuals capable of
learning or foiling his plans. He finds torturing superheroes almost as fun as starting world wars.
When things go bad, Cupid laughs hysterically. He does not like it when his plans are defeated.
Revenge will be on his mind, and any superhero who stops him will pay in ways that affect him
or her emotionally (targets friends and family) for the rest of their life.

Arrows of Obsession: Anyone struck by these yellow energy arrows must save vs.

a friend’s wife, a serial killer falls in love with the first lady, a super hero falls in love with a super
villainess). Sometimes he makes sure both people are involved to insure the disastrous affair. In
others, only one person is affected, and soon he or she must give vent to powerful feelings,
which can only lead to scandal, shame, or often violence. The effect lasts for 2D4 weeks.
Note: Only a successful remove curse spell can cancel the magic obsession.

HERACLES (HERCULES

Heracles has come to challenge any super-strong PC to a contest of might. Along the way, he is
likely to cause a certain amount of trouble. However, he is ultimately a well-intentioned hero
who tries to right injustice and destroy evil. He can be an ally or a nuisance (G.M.s call). He will
try to control his fits of temper, but he is still prone to violent rages if provoked, frustrated, or
angered beyond his endurance (insulting or mocking him is a quick way to get him going). He
can be a little over powering for most games, so I suggest use his wisely and with discretion.

ARES (Mars)

This godling has come to Earth to be either a hero or villain. However, in the long run he’ll
become as much of a menace as any super villain or world conqueror. He is likely to instigate
conflict and incite warfare.His desire to collect WMD is prime example of this. Presently he his
mercenary services are available to anyone, but at some point his desire to bring out the blood
lust of war will show itself. Heroes will have to use their wits about them when dealing with this

TRITON (Tamer of the Storms)

Triton rises from the sea depths to give humankind a message, we can protect the oceans and
the environment, or he will do it for us. He is a defender of the environment, essentially a good
person trying to ensure humanity has a opportunity at a better life in the future and the world’s
oceans will still be around. His cause is a good one, although he appears misguided with his
methods. He will look for allies or anyone to join him in his cause of defending the world from
polluters and those who seek to make profit of the death of aquatic animal life. He’d make a
perfect ally to the “mermaid” Undertow or any adventure scenario involving Century Station or
Gramercy Island.

his body. His eyes are a deep blue color. His teeth are sharp and pointy (1D6 bite), so he rarely
smiles to avoid scaring people. He’s not afraid to use them to defend himself. He dislikes being
on land and becomes nervous and fidgety. He prefers the company of aquatic beings over
surface dwellers, and dolphins over any human.
Attributes: I.Q. 18, M.E. 17, M.A. 16, P.S. 30/66 (underwater), P.P. 22, P.E. 19, Spd 120

In Century Station a couple of heroes and villains are mentioned but they are never fleshed out.
Its like Bill left them up for G.M.s to create. Well I've decided for those who don't want to take
the time to make their own, here are some CS conversions you can use.

SLEEP THAT NO PAIN SHALL WAKE
NIGHT THAT NO MOURN SHLL BREAK
Quote the Boogeyman


Colin Beard is the most recent individual to take up the mantle of the mysterious hero known as
the Boogeyman in Century Station. Born and raised in CS, he watched crime take place outside
his bedroom window. He swore one day to do something to change his neighborhood. After high
school, he enlisted in the police academy. After graduating, a Captain in the Organize Crime
Control Bureau (OCCB) approached him about working for the Narcotics Division.
It required learning how to work deep undercover and associate himself with crime and
corruption. Nevertheless he would be able to make a difference in removing some of the street
criminals. Colin agreed. Within two years, he had the best arrest record in the department. In
fact, he became so good the Crime Lords of Century Station put a price on his head. Then one
day, just on a whim, he bought a lottery ticket. He won $10 million dollars.

Two days later he quit the department and decided to move up into Society Hill. He forgot all
about being a cop and the promise he made to himself. However, the Crime Lords didn’t forget
about him or what he’d done as a police officer. One night while driving his BMW sport car down
Route 273, an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) struck his car. He’d survive the explosion and the
crash, to awaken in the basement of building surrounded by a dozen street punks he recognized
as the Thug Dogs. His testimony got their leader sent to Gramercy Island for 25 years for a
bogus charge of possession and manufacturing of crystal meth. Just before they could start
torturing him, the mysterious vigilante known as the Boogyman appeared. He defeated
all twelve street punks, but as he started to untie Colin, two punks shot him in the back of the
head, killing him instantly. The street punks took off thinking they killed Colin as well.

As Colin lay there bleeding and injured something detached itself from the dead man chest, and
slithered its way up his arm. The moment it did, he felt charged with some kind of mysterious
power. His injuries no longer bothered him, in fact they felt like minor flesh wounds. He stumbled
outside and found the two thugs talking to a man in a black limo. He walked up to them without
anyone noticing him and broke one man’s neck and the other he killed with a machete
made of shadow. The limo tried to speed away when he trapped it in a wall of shadow. He got a
hold of the driver but the man in the car got away. When he asked who was in the car, the
driver said the Minotaur and he was going to be sorry he attacked him. Colin blasted him with a
bolt of shadowy black energy. When he returned to the basement, he found a man weeping over
the body of the Boogeyman. He said his name was Arthur White, and the Boogeyman was his
friend. When he noticed Colin’s eyes, he explained about the mysterious symbiote on his arm and
the legacy of the Boogeyman. Colin knew the rumors of the the Minotaur, and for whatever
reason he decided to reward the punks for trying to kill him. The Boogeyman gave his life so
that he might live. He owed his life to this man, and what better way to get even with the
Minotaur and his Crime Lords then to carry on the Legacy of the Protector of the Streets. He
and Arthur buried the former Boogy in a park in Rattle Ridge, but Colin took his hooded cloak.
Arthur, a skilled mechanic, modified his armor and together they still carry on the tradition of the
Boogeyman. Colin’s ultimate goal is to bring down the Crime Empire of the Minotaur and make the
streets of Century Station safe for everyone.

JIJII (The Old Man)

He is legend among the assassin community. Some do not believe he is a real person, however
that is the way Hiromasa wants his reputation to stay. He prides himself in his anonymity, and
freedom it provides. Although it would appear he lives in retirement, spending most of his time
fishing and riding his bike, he does on occasion check up on his Chunin to see how they are
doing, when he does so, he never announce his presence. He merely watches, and should he
notice failure or weakness, he will unleash his wrath upon the Chunin and all within the clan.
sometimes when he visit, he will accept an assignment if the target is intriguing or
challenging enough. None have ever live to speak of an encounter with him. Having learn of the

THE MINOTAUR

The origin of the most powerful crime lord of Century Station has remained a secret until now.
Some suspect him to be something more then an average person. Well this true, in fact he’s not
a man at all. Thirteen years ago, Gustavo Fosco, was the Don of Century Station, and his family
handled the Mafia business in much of the city. While most of his money he made from smuggling
and protection rackets on the Archipelago docks, Fosco made a great deal of money
legitimately in the cattle industry. He bought a farm in Ulster and raised beef cattle. In an effort
to ensure his farm would produce high quality carcass beef, Fosco bought experimental growth
hormones from a biological research lab and started injecting it into one particular bull in an
effort to produce large numbers of hybrid beef cattle. Unbeknownst to anyone, the growth
hormone not only made the Angus bull bigger, it increased its intelligence and allowed it to
develop human-like characteristics. Fosco called the bull Zeus (didn’t like the name Jupiter) and
allowed him free range around the ranch. Most of the “family business” was conducted in a
loft above the barn in which Zeus was kept.

From here Zeus learned about being a mobster. His telepathic abilities allowed him to enter the
minds of others, even sift through their surface thoughts. Over the next two yeas, he continued
to grow and learn until it was time to send him off to the slaughterhouse. As they tried to put
him into the truck, Zeus used his hypnotic suggestion powers to make everyone go home and
take a nap. He then had a heart to heart talk with Fosco, advising him that he could be useful
to him, if he spared his life. Fosco agreed. Zeus could be his ace in the whole, however Zeus
wanted his hormone treatments doubled to sped up his mutation, for he was convinced it would
change him even further. Within a week, Zeus stood up on his hind legs and could walk like a
man. A week later and he could almost pass as a man in darkness. Soon Zeus became Fosco
newest “Cleaner” and loyal bodyguard. All the while Fosco taught the mutant bull everything he
wanted to know about being a Don. And what Fosco didn’t tell him, Zeus pulled from his mind.

Then one-night family members of the previous Don of the city sent a Colorpunk gang the Black
Spartans to take out Fosco. They succeeded in shooting him and killing everyone on the farm,
but Zeus managed to hide Fosco in the woods before the gang set everything a blaze. Fosco
and Zeus now had to go into hiding. They sought refuse in the old Project Daedalous building,
now known as the Labyrinth. Zeus force those living there to aid him in nursing Fosco back to
health, but the living conditions only made his injuries worse. On his deathbed, Fosco told Zeus
to use his talents and know how to retake control of the city and to ensure it never
fell back into the hands of anarchists. Zeus mourned his master’s death briefly then he went
about his task.

First and foremost, he gathered as many mutants that he could find and convinced them to not
only join him, but to nominate him as their supreme leader. However, no one was ever to know
that he (now calling himself the Minotaur) was a mutant animal. When he spoke with others he
always did so at a distance or through mediators. In the end, with a dozen mutant thugs on his
side, and the ability to read the thoughts of his enemies, the Minotaur elevated himself to
becoming one of the premier Crime Lords of the city. But that wasn’t enough, he wanted all of
it. Soon his agents were assassinating anyone who potentialy stood in his way. All the while,
the Minotaur remained shadowed in mystery. No one knew anything about him, just rumor and
speculation. His enigmatic nature spread to fear, as no one escaped his death touch. Other
crime lords wanted to make peace with him before they ended up a rotting corpse on the
streets of Brisby Flats. Shortly after Bloody Monday, the Minotaur formed an alliance with most
of the major crime syndicates, all of which answered to him. Those who didn’t join him found
themselves dead in the street or their headquarters blown to pieces. It’s been 3 years since the
Minotaur assume command, and no one but his closest associates knows the truth about him,
and he intends to keep it that way. Every so often an enemy tries to learn the truth and each
time dies before anything but additional speculation is spread throughout the city. The Minotaur
rules Century Station with an iron hoof. Everyone fears him, obeys him, and does not cross him.

Well your chances of fighting him are kind of slim since he's got so many
people protecting him. The Old Man, he could be bicycling down the
street :?.

If anyone out there is looking for a book full of HU villians you should
try to find Justice Machine. This book is great. Full of 1st Edition
villians (pre-revised edition), unfortunately its a book we can't
do anything with because the copyright is no longer owned by Kevin or
anyone he can contact. I'd love to know how you go about finding
such information out. Nothing is being done with the material, and a book
full of great heroes, villians, and a neat adventure is going to waste. :x

Okay I know technically these guys belong in TMNT but back when I was first playing HU
(Revised edition) in 1990. My group of super heroes were successful at defeating the Gold
Falcon in One Dam Thing and the Crime Masters in the Mall of Terror. We were felling very
confident in ourselves, then we got our behinds kicked, stomped on, and spanked with a giant
paddle by these guys. They were so humiliated the group disbanded. I created a new team
who sought revenge. They got even but not before half the team went down. So because I
consider them to be one the nastiest group of villains from the 1st edition days and because
much of TMNT has been absorbed into HU I proudly present---THE TERROR BEARS.
Note: These guys are updated version from both TMNT books.

Comment: The greatest part of the writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. - Samuel Johnson, 1775
Thanks. I'm not joking when I say these bears kicked the crap out
these really awesome characters I had. At the time I had no
understanding how Mind Trap worked or what was happening at time.
"What do you mean I hear sirens for the threat of nuclear war?"
G.M. later says, "In the distance you see a mushroom cloud.
The blast wave is rapidly heading toward you, what do you do?" :eek:
Tom (the G.M.) let me make brand new characters (since most of mine
had gone crazy and had to be put in a mental institute) and I started
reading about Mind Trap in my Heroes Unlimited Book (1st edition
revised), so the characters I made were specifically designed to counter
these bears, and they still kicked my butt. That's why I put them here
on the board as 2nd edition characters so G.M.s can use them to
beat up new HU Characters. Enjoy and show no mercy :lol:

I've been searching around for more 1st edition guys to convert
into 2nd edition. I've found some more villains and I'll have them
up soon. And as a bonus I found some 1st edition revised
villains I made and used as reoccuring nemesis for some players of
mine. I'll update them as well.

These villians comes from Ninjas and Superspies, which friends and I have always considered to
be a supplement for HU. The reason I choose these guys is because we did an adventure in
which we had to rescue some passengers from terrorists on a cruise ship. Little did we realize
that the terrorists had their own nuclear submarine. So here I present converted to 2nd edition
HU Pan-Pacific Action Alliance.

THE PAN-PACIFIC ACTION ALLIANCE (PPAA)

This high-tech criminal group is also well versed in martial arts forms (Physical Training). They
operate from a single command base, a stolen U.S. Navy Sturgeon class submarine. The sub was
being sold to Japan by the U.S. but came up missing somewhere in the middle of the Pacific.
Since then the PPAA has used it to hold up freighters, yachts, and cruise ships in the middle of
the ocean. Presently the U.S. Navy is still attempting to locate these criminals, and so is the
Sector. When the ship was sold to Japan (for 320 million), the ship not only maintained several
torpedoes, submarine rockets, and deep water mines, but still had one HARPOON missile on
board. So far the PPAA have been content with being pirates of the Pacific Ocean, but there is
a growing fear that at some point they will threaten to use the Harpoon against another nation
(possibly the U.S.) unless they are paid a hefty ransom. Other claims they are not entirely
concerned because they feel as some point the ship will require an expensive reactor refueling
operation, making it necessary for the PPAA to surrender. Because their base is a U.S. Navy
attack submarine, it’s rather difficult to locate these criminals. If anything, they make
themselves known first by their actions. The PPAA is led by Iyetsu Fukami, who has no problem
with using the armaments of his ship against civilian targets.

IYETSU FUKAMI

As a former Sumo wrestler, Fukami commands respect with his physical presence. Along with
those who run the ship, he also commands thirty-four shadowy warriors who continually trained
to turn their bodies into finely turned fighting machines. Iyetsu has been investing all the money
stolen and plans to start up his own bank. His goal is to retire with one trillion dollars. Presently
he is sitting pretty on 500 billion, which makes him not only one of the richest criminal
masterminds, but one of the richest persons on the planet. And he won’t stop until he has even
more.

Model Type: SSN-683
Class: Sturgeon
Crew: 15 officers (not including Ityetsu Fukami) and 32 crew hands (does not include the
thirty-four Kubikiri.
S.D.C. by location:
Torpedo Tubes (4)-100 S.D.C. each
*Bridge Tower-1500 S.D.C.
*Main Body-3500 S.D.C.
Armor: 15. Stops pistols and rifle rounds (Penetration Value of 7+).
*Depleting the S.D.C. of the bridge tower or main body destroys the ship’s structural integrity,
causing it to sink. There are more then enough flotation devices and life rafts to accommodate
everyone on board, but these are only useful if the submarine is surfaced! If the vessel sinks
below 1900 feet (1900 m) the pressure will crush the submarine, killing everyone inside.
Absolutely no survivors! Anyone exiting the sub at depths beyond normal lung capacity without
special deep-sea diving gear will suffer the bends and die.
Speed: 28 mph (45 km or 25 knots)
Endurance: 60 days before needing to replenish supplies
Maximum Depth: 1900 feet (600 m)
Statistical Data:
Draft: 28.8 feet (8.77 m)
Beam: 32 feet (9.7 m)
Length: 302 feet (92 m)
Displacement: 4,460 tons surfaced, 4,960 tons submerged.
Power Plant: One S5W Nuclear Reactor
Two steam turbines, 15,000 shp, one shaft
Weapon Systems:
Torpedo Tubes (4): Range: 25 miles (40 km), Damage: 3D6x10, Blast Radius: 30 feet
(9.1 m), Speed: 63 mph (101 km or 55 knots), Depth: 3000 feet (914.4 m), Search and Attack
Depth Setting: Minimum 60 feet (18.2 m), Maximum 4500 feet (1371 m), Rate of Fire: One at a
time or volleys of two, three, or four, Payload: 16 (four for each tube). A full melee round/15
seconds is required to reload a single torpedo, Bonuses: +3 to strike (guided)

Submarine Rocket (SUBROC): Range: After breaking surface/25-30 miles (40-48 km),
Damage: 4D6x10, Blast Radius: 40 feet (12.2 m), Rate of Fire: One at a time or of volleys of
two, three, or four, Payload: 8 (two for each torpedo tube), Bonuses: +3 to strike (guided). A
full melee round/15 seconds is required to reload a single SUBROC. Note: These are ejected from
the torpedo tubes, once it clears the ship, a solid fuel rocket motor ignites coming out of the
water. These are to be launched to attack targets on the surface.

Submarine-laid Mine: Range: Touch, Damage: 2D6x10, Blast Radius: 20 feet (6.1 m), Rate
of Fire: One per minute, Payload: 10. The mines explosive depth is determined by a cable-
measuring device. When the preset depth has been determined, an electrical signal is sent to
an explosive device which locks the cable to prevent further payout. Mine will fill with water and
neutralize itself should it become separated from its cable before reaching its program depth.
Once it reaches it dept, the mine is released where it waits for an unsuspecting victim to touch
it.

Systems of Note:

Passive Sonar: Range is 10 miles (16 km). This system collects all the background
noise in the area which must be sifted through to detect enemy vessels. The sonar can track 30
different targets and identify 100 different vessels from their acoustic signature, like American
and Russian submarines.

Active Sonar: Range is 50 miles (80 km). A system set to locate targets by bouncing
sound off objects and vessels. It gives away the submarine’s position, however, and is thus
rarely used. Can also track 30 targets and identity all of the same vessels as the passive
system.

Targeting Computer System: All of the information collected by sensors is sent to
central combat computer that possesses information and feeds a target solution to the fire
control sub-system.

World Wide Communications: A sophisticated combo package that includes directional,
wide-band, and all radio frequencies, and satellite systems (GPS). To use any of these systems
the submarine must release a radio buoy or rise to a periscope depth (about 100 feet/30.5 M).
For intra-ship communications there is a telephone system and public address system.

Full Environmental System. There is a 60 day air supply
Stealth System: Measures have been taken to reduce the noise made by a sub’s system
when it’s underway. There is a -10% penalty to vehicles, robots, and human operators using
sonar to make the sub’s sonar signature undetectable.

Acoustic Decoys: Launched from mini-torpedoes tubes amidships, the decoys broadcast
an acoustic signal designed to mask the submarine’s signature and confused incoming torpedoes.
(50% chance to deflect normal torpedoes). Decoys can be launched two at a time, and
reloading the mini-tubes requires one-melee. The sub normally carries 20 decoys.

Dry Deck Shelter (DDS): This is a submersible launcher hanger with a hyperbolic chamber
that attaches to the ship’s Weapon Shipping Hatch. It’s purpose it to allow for the covert
insertion of the Kubikiri. The DDS also provides a practical means of delivering the Kubikiri due to
its size, capabilities, and location on the ship.

Note What about the Harpoon? I leave that for G.M. to decide.If you choose to include it in your adventure.

Although I find the conversion of the PPAA and Ityetsu Fukami most interesting (and the use of Heavyweight certainly is appropriate as a minor power) are some of the kick attacks really useful? I'd rather substitute them with hold and lock attacks myself, to show that he's a grabber and thrower; other than that, I think it's well done.
