So I've been here on the Weave for a while now, and I figured it was about time that I post some of my homebrew material for the rest of you to enjoy. Feel free to use my ideas in your games, and remember that feedback is appreciated.
For the d20 Modern system:
More homebrew material to come... ~digging it out of my vast RPG archives~
See, for Folk Hero, I would do things slightly differently. Folks who were positively inclined to you before would have their attitude bumped up one step. Folks that were negatively inclined would be one step more aggressive. Neutral could go either way with the flip of a coin.
When you're a folk hero, there are no end of people who resent your popularity, or want to try themselves against you to gain some fame for themselves.
I see your point, but at the same time, you have many cases of where people who would otherwise be openly hostile would hesitate to take over action against the folk hero because that person has the support of the general populace. There have been many cases, for example, where an "outlaw hero" escaped hostile action from rival criminals or even authority figures because of how much the common folk liked them. Some of the most successful criminal syndicates build their entire reputations on this - they do enough good deeds for PR reasons that the average Joe is reluctant to rat them out.
As outlined in the Gaming Discussion Guide, homebrew material is better added to the MW Wiki, with links to and from a discussion thread.
The Wiki is better suited to not only display the material, but also track any revisions or modifications.
Moreover, material in the Wiki is easier to find again, as it won't be disappear due to new threads being posted.
