My real physics defeats your quasi physics!!!
Imagine, if you will, a Paladin Sperm Whale Cosmo Knight.
Sperm whales already have a really high amount of HP & SDC, so their resultant MDC would be quite high. Now add the armor and the Cosmo Knight ability to effectively shrug off energy blasts and you've got one tough champion! Add to that the perfect weapon; A pair (or more) of ship piercing ramming horns or blades and now you've REALLY got a Cosmo knight that can take on starships!

Just a random thought my DM came up with last night. :lol:

No SDC or HP of the origional being remains, they are re-made into the Cosmo Knight with only the usual MDC roll.

Regardless, the idea of a flying, shining, speaking Sperm Whale is hilarious :lol:

Would his favorite snack, or arch-nemesis, be Giant Vampire Space Uglies?

When did Haz-mat make that char?

http://palladiumbooks.com/forums/viewto ... =28&t=6786 Aramanthus talked about this in 2006.

Anyone know when https://rifts-megaversal-highway.obsidi ... ters/cosmo went up? Akashic posted a link to it in 2014 http://palladiumbooks.com/forums/viewto ... ?p=2773515 so at least that early.

It's allowed explictly for large ships. it halves damage of missile volleys.

Don't know about that, but the Lord of the Deep would be in for some serious crap.

Cosmo Knights are not actually weak to magic, they just take regular damage from your call lightning rather than 1/100, plus their high PE and MDC means that they are fantasic anti-magic tanks too. High save and enough MDC to survive a beating, what more do you want?

Seriously, I never got this whole "Cosmo Knights are weak to magic" thing. They are not. They're actually more resistant than most OCC's.

If Dragons get their own hth style, cetacens should too!
The megaverse demands Flipper-style akkido!

Maybe if he goes in by himself, but sperm whales hunt in pods... And Rifts sperm whales have power armour, evidently...
