Player Name: Heritage
Character Name: Grimalkin
Power Level: 15 (250/250PP) [252]
Tradeoffs: None (+2 Attack / -2 Damage, +2 Defense / -2 Toughness, in Pixie Form)
Unspent PP: 0
Progress To Impervium Status: 129/150 (32PP earned pre-bump, 97PP earned post-bump)

Alternate Identity: Lynn Epstein
Height: 5'3"
Weight: 116 lbs.
Hair: Brown, worn short and a bit spiky
Eyes: Dark Brown

Description: A pretty young slip of a girl, Lynn typically wears ragged jeans, T-shirt, tennis shoes and a hooded sweatshirt during the day, but is wrapped in >skintight leather of black and midnight blue, complete with domino mask, when she prowls the dirty streets at night. While she may appear to be a wee skinny thing, due to her faerie nature she's actually much stronger than she looks.

History: A young runaway from Atlantic City, Lynn Epstein turned to a life of panhandling and petty crime to survive; three years ago it became too much, and she crawled into a dark alley on a chill winter night to die, but instead awoke the next day transformed! For many months she used her powers selfishly, living the high life and swindling ‘suckers’, until one night she saw a young streetwalker attacked; the FCPD’s profound indifference to the crime appalled her, and she swore that night to use her powers to help those the Powers That Be would not help. Like a trickster goddess with a vengeful streak, her personal brand of justice might seem somewhat capricious, but she would never willfully take a human life.

Personality & Motivation: Being that she's a shapeshifter, it's perhaps not surprising that Lynn is rather hard to pin down; she lives very much in the 'now', making few great plans and doing her best not to dwell on the past. Her emotions are intensely felt, and she can switch from playful to angry to sad almost in the same sentence. Lynn also finds comfort in the little things, everyday wonders like bike rides in the park, ice cream of nearly any flavor, and lazy afternoons spent lying in the grass; she never seems to have enough of the simple pleasures, which makes her cherish them all the more.

As a crimefighter, Grim is driven by many things: the desire to see a wasted life blossom once more, an end to cruelty, injustice and indifference, and a strong personal desire to constantly improve her technique. She likes teaming up with other heroes to see how she measures up and maybe pinch a trick or two, but she is frequently very self-critical of her own performance, to the point of downplaying her many successes. However, she’s still quite young and her confidence continues to grow.

Powers & Tactics: Grimalkin's powers come from her faerie nature; some of them are innate, such as her keen senses and high tolerance to cold, but many of them come from her ability to manipulate glamour, the very essence of the fey. Seeing as her body is now wholly composed of glamour, she can alter it in a number of ways, such as completely changing her appearance, making herself nearly undetectable, or eluding capture. She can also create various objects seemingly out of thin air (actually ambient glamour), which she uses as props, furniture or just her own amusement. She can also grow her nails into supernaturally sharp claws that can rip through steel!

In combat, Grim prefers the stealthy strike to take better advantage of her claws; when forced into a 'fair fight', she uses her wits and charm to befuddle her foes to level the playing field.



Complications:
Prejudice (Vampires): While she makes an exception (with some difficulty!) in Avenger's case, Grim really doesn't trust bloodsuckers at all.
Prejudice (The Wealthy): Due to her lower middle class upbringing, Grim has a hard time sympathizing with the well-to-do
Secret Identity: While she doesn't go to the impressive lengths of her teammate Jack of All Blades, Grim does wear a mask and use only her heroic name while in the field.
Sensitivity To Taunting: She can dish it out, but she can't take it. Verbal barbs have a way of really getting under Grim's skin.
Short Fuse: Under the right circumstances, Grim can get very angry very fast, but usually cools down just as quickly.

Character Name: Grimalkin

Power Level: 15 (250/250PP) [252]

Tradeoffs: None (+2 Attack / -2 Damage, +2 Defense / -2 Toughness, in Pixie Form)

Unspent PP: 0

Progress To Impervium Status: 129/150 (32PP earned pre-bump, 97PP earned post-bump)

Alternate Identity: Lynn Epstein

Height: 5'3"

Weight: 116 lbs.

Hair: Brown, worn short and a bit spiky

Eyes: Dark Brown

Description: A pretty young slip of a girl, Lynn typically wears ragged jeans, T-shirt, tennis shoes and a hooded sweatshirt during the day, but is wrapped in skintight leather of black and midnight blue, complete with domino mask, when she prowls the dirty streets at night. While she may appear to be a wee skinny thing, due to her faerie nature she's actually much stronger than she looks.

History: A young runaway from Atlantic City, Lynn Epstein turned to a life of panhandling and petty crime to survive; three years ago it became too much, and she crawled into a dark alley on a chill winter night to die, but instead awoke the next day transformed! For many months she used her powers selfishly, living the high life and swindling ‘suckers’, until one night she saw a young streetwalker attacked; the FCPD’s profound indifference to the crime appalled her, and she swore that night to use her powers to help those the Powers That Be would not help. Like a trickster goddess with a vengeful streak, her personal brand of justice might seem somewhat capricious, but she would never willfully take a human life.

[floatl]GrimalkinHFMk2.png[/floatl]Personality & Motivation: Being that she's a shapeshifter, it's perhaps not surprising that Lynn is rather hard to pin down; she lives very much in the 'now', making few great plans and doing her best not to dwell on the past. Her emotions are intensely felt, and she can switch from playful to angry to sad almost in the same sentence. Lynn also finds comfort in the little things, everyday wonders like bike rides in the park, ice cream of nearly any flavor, and lazy afternoons spent lying in the grass; she never seems to have enough of the simple pleasures, which makes her cherish them all the more.

As a crimefighter, Grim is driven by many things: the desire to see a wasted life blossom once more, an end to cruelty, injustice and indifference, and a strong personal desire to constantly improve her technique. She likes teaming up with other heroes to see how she measures up and maybe pinch a trick or two, but she is frequently very self-critical of her own performance, to the point of downplaying her many successes. However, she’s still quite young and her confidence continues to grow.

Powers & Tactics: Grimalkin's powers come from her faerie nature; some of them are innate, such as her keen senses and high tolerance to cold, but many of them come from her ability to manipulate glamour, the very essence of the fey. Seeing as her body is now wholly composed of glamour, she can alter it in a number of ways, such as completely changing her appearance, making herself nearly undetectable, or eluding capture. She can also create various objects seemingly out of thin air (actually ambient glamour), which she uses as props, furniture or just her own amusement. She can also grow her nails into supernaturally sharp claws that can rip through steel!

In combat, Grim prefers the stealthy strike to take better advantage of her claws; when forced into a 'fair fight', she uses her wits and charm to befuddle her foes to level the playing field.


Complications:

Prejudice (Vampires): While she makes an exception (with some difficulty!) in Avenger's case, Grim really doesn't trust bloodsuckers at all.

Prejudice (The Wealthy): Due to her lower middle class upbringing, Grim has a hard time sympathizing with the well-to-do

Secret Identity: While she doesn't go to the impressive lengths of her teammate Jack of All Blades, Grim does wear a mask and use only her heroic name while in the field.

Sensitivity To Taunting: She can dish it out, but she can't take it. Verbal barbs have a way of really getting under Grim's skin.

Short Fuse: Under the right circumstances, Grim can get very angry very fast, but usually cools down just as quickly.

Impoverished is going to be a 1 PP Drawback. "Struggling" will just be a complication.

Your complication looks fine. Feel free to add both of these to your sheet.

Okay, added the complication, and used the 1 pp from Impoverished to buy Sneak Attack; let me know if everything looks good for Grim.

Character Name: Grimalkin

Power Level: PL 11 (159/172 PPs)

Unspent PPs: 13

Trade-Offs: None

Alternate Identity: Lynn Epstein

Height: 5'3"

Weight: 116 lb

Hair: Brown, worn short and a bit spiky

Eyes: Dark brown

Description: A pretty young slip of a girl, Lynn typically wears ragged jeans, T-shirt, tennis shoes and a hooded sweatshirt during the day, but is wrapped in skintight leather of black and midnight blue, complete with domino mask, when she prowls the dirty streets at night.

History: A young runaway from Atlantic City, Lynn Epstein turned to a life of panhandling and petty crime to survive; a year ago it became too much, and she crawled into a dark alley on a chill winter night to die, but instead awoke the next day transformed! For many months she used her powers selfishly, living the high life and swindling ‘suckers’, until one night she saw a young streetwalker attacked; the FCPD’s profound indifference to the crime appalled her, and she swore that night to use her powers to help those the Powers That Be would not help. Like a trickster goddess with a vengeful streak, her personal brand of justice might seem somewhat capricious, but she would never willfully take a human life.

Personality & Motivation: Being that she's a shapeshifter, it's perhaps not surprising that Lynn is rather hard to pin down; she lives very much in the 'now', making few great plans and doing her best not to dwell on the past. Her emotions are intensely felt, and she can switch from playful to angry to sad almost in the same sentence. Lynn also finds comfort in the little things, everyday wonders like bike rides in the park, ice cream of nearly any flavor, and lazy afternoons spent lying in the grass; she never seems to have enough of these simple pleasures, which makes her cherish them all the more.

As a crimefighter, Grim is driven by many things: the desire to see a wasted life blossom once more, an end to cruelty, injustice and indifference, and a strong personal desire to constantly improve her technique. She likes teaming up with other heroes to see how she measures up and maybe pinch a trick or two, but she is frequently very self-critical of her own performance, to the point of downplaying her many successes. However, she’s still quite young and her confidence continues to grow.

I'm submitting the PL10 version of Grim now, in preparation for Gold status at the end of may (I hope!). I will do an IC piece explaining her powers changing at the beginning of June.

I'll give the first look, though not until you actually hit Gold.

Please use the preferred board format for her Skills ;)

One thing I will ask, though: how is "only humanoid" a Flaw for her Shapeshift? What can't she get, what can she get? (I know of several possible answers to this, but I want your answer.)

Oh, I'll ask a second thing, too: why are her Claws built like that? Shouldn't they be Mighty? Yes, she has no Str bonus now, but there are several ways her Str can get boosted (especially with her Shapeshift) or drained, and shouldn't that affect the damage her claws do? Also, why are they ranked so high? Strike 8 isn't claws, at least not claws that don't have heavy magical backing to enhance their damage-dealing capability. Why not amp up her Sneak Attack?

Sorry, I coped the stats over from her other sheet, which was in that format; guess it was not corrected back in the day. Changed now :)

Limited is one of the suggested flaws listed under the power; I interpret this power in two parts.

1) She can not turn into inanimate objects, machines or animals

2) She can adopt certain personal affecting powers, not to exceed the equivalent of 20 pp. So Unsubstantial 1, Elongation Flying (Glide), Blending, Morph (for the purpose of determining her Disguise total) etc, would be effects she could replicate.

This is a good point, which I hadn't thought of; to be honest, I was just trying to keep the build simple, but she could easily create some muscle mass to add power behind her Claws, and/or increase her Sneak Attack. How does Penetrating work in conjunction with those adjustments? I added Pen because she kept having trouble affecting folks with higher levels of Protection.

The first part I easily get, but I'm conflicted on the second. If there were humanoid races in the setting which had Blending or Elongation or Flight/Gliding or Insubstantial 1/fluid form or so on, I'd have no problem, but since there aren't.... I'm not sure it should be allowable to do "any physical power as long as my body remains roughly humanoid in shape." I'll think more on it, though; I may just be being overly-cautious.

(Once this is settled, I am going to need you to list some sample forms she takes. Variable Powers are tricky things to GM for, so we need some baseline to judge on ;) )

You have Sneak Attack: that alone makes things a tad more complicated ;)

First off, Penetrating does nothing vs. high Protection: Penetrating nixes Impervious, so that you have a chance to harm someone with Imp. Toughness.

Examples: barring feats like Power Attack and the like, someone with Strike 8 vs. Toughness +10 (Impervious 10) cannot harm the target, b/c the Impervious is higher than the total damage rank, and so the Tougnhess save automatically succeeds.

But someone with Strike 8 (Penetrating) has a chance to harm that same target. Penetrating negates Impervious on a 1:1 basis, and if after the reduction the damage rank is equal to or more than any remaining Impervious, the damage can get through. Since Impervious 10 - Penetrating 8 = Impervious 2, and Damage 8 > 2, there's a chance she can harm that person.

However, since the numbers/DCs remain the same, sometimes Penetrating just isn't enough. For example, if Grim as stated here were to attack (Damage 8 w/ Penetrating 8) a Mind Controlled ( ;) ) Dr. Archeville with his full Force Field up (Toughness +14, Impervious 12), she'll have a chance to damage him -- Imp 12 - Penetrating 8 = Imp 4, and the +8 damage she does is more than that -- but there's still the fact it's a DC 23 (15 + 8) effect vs. someone with a +14 bonus on their save (so on an average roll he gets a 24, resulting in no damage at all). (Sneak attacks are useful!)

You can get Penetrating as a 'naked' Extra, applying as much to your attacks as you have damage for that attack. So you could buy Penetrating 10, but if you're just punching someone with +0 Str, you won't get the benefit of any of that Penetrating.

I'd suggest replacing her Strike with Strike 2 (PF: Mighty), and raise Sneak Attack to 5. If you use Shapeshift to gain Enhanced Strength 6 (something I'd have almost no problem at all with), then when you sneak attack you'll get that full +10 damage you're looking for ;) That'd leave you with 9pp left over, which you could use to get Penetrating Damage 9 (note: only has as much Penetrating as the effective damage rank). Or something else, like Hide in Plain Sight (to help set up conditions to get sneak attacks).
