CORELINE (D20 Modern/D20 BESM Setting).

Does, but in the many years since it became part of DC comics Canon, it's gotten pretty crazy. It even has a mind of its own now (and in standard CW fashion it's a complete and utter jackass), plus covers lots of other fields like there is a sub-force for strength. They have also gone pretty full-blown Light Side/Dark Side with it.

Dunno if it would be best to cut down on that. You go fast, you can make others go slow, anything crazier (time travel, not sure about vibration) is in the realm of the Masters.
 
A Speed Force Paladin (who is much different from a Flash) would have the regular speedster tricks - speed up, run on water, the trick of stealing speed is probably high-level. Dunno where fast healing could be fit - maybe mid-level. If it's possible for the Paladin to give speed to other people, probably at first the other people must make rolls to not get dizzy by the sudden feeling of everything going at HD fast-forward x40,000, which would vanish on higher levels.

Fast-heal "lay on hands" may also need some disadvantages to make it different from regular magical healing, especially because it's regular healing going at high speed and may not work as well. I guess something like the Paladin must make two rolls -- one before the lay-on that would stand in for something like setting bones, pulling out bullets, etc, and then one AS the lay-on is taking effect which stands in for the Paladin making sure that the speed-up isn't making the bone heal out of place.

Hydra-Chitauri Medium Amour
After the Battle of New York, SHIELD confiscated a large number of the armours, and Hydra smuggled many out to their research bases to study and modify them for their own use. The armour consists of an armoured chest piece over combat fatigues, usually camouflage patterned. Bracers with a part that goes over the knuckles and hand grip connected to the chest piece with servos. Leg braces run along the outer and inner sides of the legs to the boots. The servos grant some strength enhancement and some speed enhancement, a small jetpack allows limited flight. The hand pieces the user grips connected to a part that goes around the fist is an energy blaster based on the Chitauri weapons, and is configured to deliver a charge when used in melee combat. This version has heavier armour and improved servos, but it is a little slower than the lighter version and has improved power supply.
These sets of armours are only issued to high level soldiers, Vanguards, Armoured Guards and other special members.

Weight: 22 lbs
Purchase DC: 20
Restriction: Res (+2)

Free action once per round to extend or retract the shield.
Several layers of ablative scales are attached to the armour, giving it a snake skin like appearance. These scales reduce damage to the user as the scales are damaged, they break off, revealing the next layer underneath. This modification grants the wearer DR 10, and each attack that deals damage reduces the DR by 1. Once the DR is reduced to 0, the scales are used up and need to be replaced.
Adds 3 lbs to the armour and imposes an additional -1 to armour check penalty, but once the DR is reduced to 0, reduce the weight and armour check penalty are removed.

Oh, OK. Didn't knew that.

Have MSF. The issue is that there is no way to change the language.

Dumb question... you remember what that "STRIKE" stood for?

Special Tactical Reserve for Interdimensional Key Events.
Which in a way is kind of useful in Coreline since so may "dimensional" versions of different characters have appeared and are running around.
 
Yeah.... I can see SHIELD getting some restructuring.

So.... STRIKE is their division in charge of investigating/dealing with Incursions (people/things that arrive, name on the street for this is also Emerging). The Avengers Alliance is another sub-division, in charge of sending SHIELD agents to be liaisons with Avengers teams around the country/world. Screening is pretty damn tough because they are there to help Avengers teams deal with law enforcement-related red tape and have an additional set of boots on the ground for support, NOT to be spies for Fury, Coulson or whoever is the director (on current Coreline fanfic it's Coulson, but this is a secret. Fury got kicked out because, well, it's Fury. That guy's secrets have secrets and at some point this was going to bite him).

You know I imagine many alternates of Malcom Reynolds wanting to obtain a ftl drive for Serenity, so he and his crew can just leave Alliance territory. Mind you I think that the Firefly "'verse" exists on the fringes of UED territory and that the Alliance is effectively a UED vassal state, so it would be slightly harder for them to avoid entanglements related to their past with the Alliance, but the better the FTL drive they obtain, the further they can get away.

The big problem I've experienced is collating all the information available. Like how many planets are in the Alpha Centauri system? There's Chiron/Planet from Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, the Polymepheus and it's moon Pandora from Avatar, Proxima Centauri 3 in Babylon 5, just to name a few. Then there are the planets belonging to the United Federation of Planets, the Imperium of Man, the United Earth Directorate, etc.


That being said, there are some good maps of space out there we could use as a basis, including those from the Traveller rpg.

I'm pretty sure B5 isn't in alpha centauri as that's too close to earth to I think.. I've got one of the b5 RPGs books that might have a map..
I'd say first we pick one universe to use as a base.. star trek for example.. then we make sure the well known planets are mapped and major trek empires. Then we can start plugging in other similar universes like say b5 into it as many systems are the same, at least within the near earth systems. The firefly system we pick one within a suitable distance from earth. Plug in wh40k stuff. Place wormholes and other spacial anomalies where we want, like path to sw galaxy.
So some in theory we can make the milky way bigger than it really is if we want.

No, I mean the Earth Alliance colony Proxima Centauri 3 from the series Babylon 5.
I read that backwards... I really shouldn't be answering questions at 3 in the morning after a 12 hour shift.
But like I said, we need to pick one as a base just to cut our work down then fill in the extra

I would suggest that the Traveller maps be used as the basis, given their comprehensiveness.

I suggest using Worldographer for the maps. It should already have everything needed to do star maps. Of course it can do local maps as well.
