TEBARON SWORD!!! There was Khorak yes. But there was also that Russian loving guy, was it Senor Kickass? The one with the Vodka loving character which turned into some uber super duper type who could kill people with a touch or something. I don't think that SD lasted long enough to see how silly things may have gotten. Comparatively, I think the random powers based Superhero SD seemed to do fairly well, but then again, there was more focus on action and stuff. I think the main reason people didn't enjoy the SD wasn't because of the random powers, but because of setting itself. In fact, I think the randomization actually attracted more interest. Plus I think it encourages more creative writing, then say writing for pet characters. That's probably because everyone loves you and you have a loyal following. It's also not just flagrant powergaming, but there's low key stuff as well. I'm very good friends with PhantomVX and he's a decent SD'er participant but he always... *prepares* himself for eventualities I think. And as another example, in the posthuman SD, I think everyones character (mine included) had like... a healing factor. Nothing wrong with that, it just seems kind of.... cliche. I know everyone wants to take a beating and keep on ticking though, I wanted my character to after all. Plus I do dislike being strict in my SD's, as mean as I can be in non-SD related threads, I feel sad when I have to lay the smackdown on even obviously bad or contrary posts or characters. And you had a cyborg for goodness sake Damar, that's like tailor made for you.
