Nyrath - Black Anubis - PL13 Villain (NPC Tier 3)

Recommended Posts

Being tired of staring at a rather shoddy build marring an, in my mind, excellent concept I hereby present my 'touch-up' of Black Anubis from Freedom's Most Wanted


Power Level: 13

Trade-Offs: +1 Attack -1 Damage, +1 Defence -1 Toughness

Characters Name: Black Anubis

All-out Attack



Attack Focus [Ranged] 6


Fearsome Presence 10 [DC 20, 50ft]

Power Attack

Rage 5 [+10 Str, +5 Fortitude & Will, -2 Defence, 10 rounds]



Powers: 8+25+34+10+11+7+2 = 97pp

Comprehend 4 [Languages] [Read All, Understand All, Be Understood in All] [8pp]

Darkness Control 12 (Shadow Tar Manipulation) [Power Feats: Alternative Power 1) [25pp]

AP: Create Object 12 [shadow-Form Ghosts]

Disintegration 6 (Shadow Tar Acid) (Power Feats: Alternate Power 4) [34pp]

AP: Blast 12 (Power Feats: Affects Insubstantial 2]

AP: Dazzle 12 [Visual] (Power Feats: Reversible)

AP: Fatigue 12

AP: Snare 12 (Power Feats: Reversible)

Flight 5 [250mph] [10pp]

Immunity 11 [Age, Life-Support, Starvation] [11pp]

Protection 7 [7pp]

DC Block:

Unarmed: Calm --- 19/Toughness --- Bruised, Staged

Unarmed: Raging --- 24/Toughness --- Bruised, Staged

Blast 12 --- 27/Toughness --- Bruised, Staged

Dazzle 12 --- 22/Reflex [/Fortitude] --- Dazzle

Fatigue 12 --- 22/Fortitude --- Fatigue, Staged

Snare 12 --- 22/Reflex --- Entangle, Staged

Disintegration 6 ---16/Fortitude; 21/Toughness --- Drain Toughness, Proportional; Bruised, Staged

Costs: Abilities (36) + Combat (44) + Saves (13) + Skills (20) + Feats (28) + Powers (97) - Drawbacks (00) = 238pp

The only things cut outright from the original build are the Drain Constitution AP and Minions Feat, everything else has either been retained, upgraded, or folded into an upgrade. A couple of things have been added such as a Craft skill so he can actually use Artificer, and a few powers I feel he should have had in the first place like Immunity.

While I know Oth here is going to be a Tier 3 NPC by virtue of being a Canon NPC remake I do itch to use him for a few capers. I hope that won't be problem even though I'm no Ref since he's hardly what you'd call a major player despite his demi-god status.

Alright, not bad. Even though I'm worried about the Disintegrate being used on low fort saves (i really don't like the idea of disintegrate being used on sentient beings) I must note that Anubis is a Tier 3 character, so that'll be up to the refs to use it :)APPROVED

Looks pretty good just a few little things.

If you could put the attack entry in the format of +8 (+14 ranged) its easier to see what is base and what is from feats.

I count 97 not 99 points spent on powers.

within powers I'm a little nervous about disintegrate but as it is on a tier three NPC I'm not gonna disallow it. If you do want to use Black Anubis in threads you theoretically can if a ref gives you permission and agrees to keep an eye on what you're doing with him is my understanding.

Alright I stand corrected. Except in cases of extreme staff laziness Tier three is staff only. Make sure to bug sandman if you want to use Black Anubis in a thread ;)

Ok looks good just one thing I missed last time around, could you add what aspects of language he has comprehend for, with 4 ranks I think that'd be understand all speak all simultaneously and read/write all but writing it out would be helpful.
