    I'm wondering if adding cayenne pepper, jalapeno extract, and maybe a little bit of cumin to a traditional cheddar sauce would be able to recreate the slightly spicy flavor I crave from nacho-cheese without having to buy something with chunks of jalapeno in it.

    Of course, I'd have to figure out if oil or alcohol-based extracts would work better for it as well.

    Oh no, the GM made a Homebrew D20 game based on Soul Eater and is importing elements of it into D&D to test the waters, "Witch" is a template. It's normally applied over the base human template but exceptions were made due to the altered setting

    Nah, see, it's a crossover with a setting where witches are born rather than made. Something to do with the nature of their soul.

    It's more a template that potentially qualifies you for certain classes.

    All this talk of anime/D&D crossovers makes me want to throw a Blue Eyes White Dragon at a party.

    Like, I'd give fair warning. the dungeon would include several battles against mages with decks of highly advanced holograms illusions.

    Also it wouldn't be hard to homebrew, stats-wise you probably begin with a blue wyrm dragon to get the right breath weapon. Bit the look on the player's faces once they finish their anti-cold preparations and it finally breaths.

    Maybe in 13th Age.

    I remember on the old wizards website their was a contest involving unique dragons modified with templates and class levels—the one that sticks out most clearly to me was The Chessmaster, a pair of Dragons with Psion levels, one black and one white, that used a custom version of the Fusion power to permanently merge into a two-headed dragon—but one of them, as far as I can remember, was just a regular red dragon that happened to be Albino.

    It was presented as a mean trick to play on players: Its lair would be in a dormant volcano in the middle of a mountainous region that was naturally cold and snowy year-round. The locals would talk about the "white dragon" becuase they don't know that white dragons don't breathe fire and, I mean, it's literally a dragon with white scales. The PCs would prepare fire spells and invest in protection from cold and such, then end p fighting a red dragon in a lava pool and their prep would be useless.

    Sure, hence the Yu-Gi-Oh themed telegraphing. It gives the players a chance, and thus makes it fairer.

    Honestly though, now I've started statting up the Millennium Items as artefacts. They work really, really well, I've not quite worked out detailed rules for Shadow Games, but their other powers fit really nicely into an RPG framework. But you just don't want the PCs getting hold of the Millennium Ring (more for it's dowsing powers than it's soul manipulation).

    I'm not sure why you'd want to pet a stonefish.

    Invulnerability or even just normal super-toughness is one of those "quality of life" superpowers. At a bare minimum, you're less likely to suffer the annoying minor injuries or take permanent harm from accidents and, depending on how it works, might age slower as you don't suffer as much wear and tear from everyday actions or environmental damage.

    I mean, if you're invulnerable all the way through the surgery and IVs aren't an issue and if you're invulnerable down to the cellular level then you have a much lower cancer risk.

    But yeah, in general, you want to pair toughness up with a healing factor, especially if the toughness isn't "invulnerable" and /or is only skin deep.

    If you only get toughness you want it to either be minor--protects from incidental damage but is only a minor inconvenience to invasive medical treatment--or absolute(can't be harmed period.)

    That's similar to another unusually-pale red dragon I'd read about way back when. It was undead. The person who first warns the PCs about it is knowledgable and trustworthy, and says that there is a dragon, that it's dangerous, where it lives, and that it's "a wight, I think."

    I vulnerable all the way through means your bacteria and cells are invulnerable. Which means when they go bad, or replicate unco trollably, they do so with invulnerability. So you still do get sick, or have an unburstable bad appendix, or get cancer. Those things are now just even more untreatable.

    "imvulnerable" does not mean "healthy".

    ...Oh, that's cruel.

    With the albino dragon, there's always the chance that an NPC could mention its fire breath or something but that seems to be almost deliberately misleading.

    Especially with it being undead. That potentially changes up not only the Dragon's behavior but the tactics that might work on it

    "imvulnerable" does not mean "healthy".
    Your symbiotic bacteria are not "you" so your invulnerable cells can handle anything they can dish out.

    And if your cells are invulnerable then the only way they'll become cancerous is from aging, because if they're truly invulnerable then they can't be harmed by the toxins and radiations that can cause dells to become cancerous.

    Invulnerable means "can't be harmed." Getting sick is a form of harm.

    Well now we're getting into biological quandries, aren't we? Is it just your brain that's invulnerable now? Also, your definition of "harm" is remarkably open-ended, which is similarly problematic in ways that would cause unintended catastrophes.

    Arguaing about the brain shifts it o philosophy.

    I think it's a moot point though. You never want just the one super-power, you want a package of them that cancel out their weaknesses.

    Pulling an easy example: You don't want just one of Wolverine's powers: If you have the bone claws without the healing factor it's gonna hurt like hell and probably make you bleed to death. Without the adamantium plating, they're not going to be able to cut through much, without the ultra-dense bones your skeleton will be crushed by the weight of the adamantium, without the enhanced physical attributes that come from the healing factor trying to make you perfect relative to your condition at the time it activated, you won't be able to move with the hundreds of pounds of steel-based allow bound to your bones and ligaments.

    The healing factor by itself might be okay, but that's becuase it's potent enough to negate aging and cellular damage and does its best to make you perfect rather than just healing you until you're fixed. If it didn't do that then every use of it would take years off your life both becuase it's using up your finite number of cellular divisions and becuase it probably causes stress to your entire body, you'd suffer premature aging, and you'd have a drastically increased risk of cancer.

    Moving away from the obvious powers: peak human sight, touch, and hearing combined with superhuman smell(and presumably taste) would be incredibly unpleasant if not for the superhuman tolerance for bright lights, loud noises, foul smells, and general sensory overload.

    Without a brain mod you probably can't even make sense of what the senses are telling you.

    I mean, you're not seeing, smelling, tasting, or hearing anything that humans can't, you're just picking up more details.
