About this build:

The Weapons Summoner, as indicated by his name, is someone who fights by summoning weapons. He is a master craftsman with both weapons and magic. However, his spells are geared towards animating and controlling his vast amount of armaments that he has created through the years. He is capable of fighting in both melee and ranged, however he lacks mobility and prefers close to mid ranged combat, where he trully shines. To that end, he can employ various tricks to entrap and close in on his foes, such as the Bounding Chains, or Metal Forging, and once the foe has nowhere left to escape, he can summon the Spirit-Bound Gauntlets, a set of Semi-Sentient Enchanted Armor Limbs that follow his control and subdue his opponents.

The Weapons Summoner is an excellent athlete, but by no means is he superhuman, and while his offensive capabilities can be impressive, his defenses leave a lot to be desired. To compensate for that, he has manufactured a full body armor, and he has decorated it with mystical runes that protect him and enhance his capabilities. Perhaps atypically for most Power Armor users, his main offensive arsenal lies not within the suit. Even without it, he is perfectly capable of laying the hurt, but he may also opt to summon and outfit himself with an extra armor. Doing so would severily limit his choices, but he would still be able to hold his ground.

Additional Notes:

:arrow: Thousand Blades can be a useful power, since it is quite accurate, and most targets with high Defense tend to have accordingly good Reflex and Evasion. However, you may find that more often than not, you are stranded without access to your Enchanted Panoply, and you need to get into the action fast. While relying on Extra Effort to cook up a magical Armor that enhances your defenses and grants you some offensive power as well from the Armmancy Array is a reliably good option, you may find that it is also a very limiting one. You can't select another Power inside the array, because doing so would forfeit your magical Armor, and you would need to spend more Extra Effort to conjure it back. To that end, replacing Thousand Blades with a series of Linked Enhanced Saves and Damage may be a good idea. Sure, while you're using it, you can't access your other powers, but switching them doesn't hurt as much. CAUTION: You WILL have to make sure you're not breaking CAPS, if you wish to do this.

Spider Hulk

Man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system- with all these exalted powers- Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.

About this Build:

This is Spider Hulk, a fusion of Spiderman(circa Six Arms Saga) and the Hulk, the purpose being giving the Hulk a slightly more varied array of options during combat, and giving Spiderman some real staying power. When thinking about the best set of powers to portray a "hulked out" spider-themed hero, the Tarantula and other Wolf Spiders came to mind most prominently. That means that this build actually plays like a trapster, rather than a straightforward brute.

While large-sized, he is surprisingly agile, especially when swinging with webs, and can be very stealthy. Indeed, only dedicated detectors may ascertain his pressence once he starts hiding or camouflaging, and even then, they may need to work for it. Very skilled, he is a dedicated grappler, and it shows, being able to grab and hold opponents with ease. If worse comes to worse, he can burrow inside the ground and take his foe by surprise.

Additional Notes:

:arrow: One thing to notice about this build is the fact that the Spider Hulk is locked in "Spider Hulk" mode. You could opt to have those effects be temporary instead of continuous. It is highly suggested, in that case, to also take the drawbacks Involuntary Transformation and Normal Identity. A Common Occurance of Major Intensity would provide you with 8PPs to spend on making Growth Sustained. This deal would leave you with 4PPs to spare. The second Rank of Evasion, more Fortitude, and Wisdom would be good ideas.

:arrow: Web Trap is useful if you want to subdue multiple foes at once, but it can be troublesome to use if your teammates or bystanders are nearby. The Selective Extra could aleviate this, but you'd need another flaw to keep this in check within the PP budget. Distracting can be a very appropriate one, given that you are paying careful attention to target only opponents. Just be aware that Spider Hulk prefers to avoid attacks, rather than withstanding them, and the Distracting Flaw leaves you flat-footed, which means it becomes hilariously easy to get hit.

About this Build:

And now, time for something completely different for me. Charisma based characters see rarer usage compared to most other concepts, and not without reason; it is very difficult to make such a build as effective as more straightforward, punch the bad guy silly builds. And personally speaking, Charisma based characters are my least favorite, both mechanically and conceptually. However, in this build I attempt to take a stab at the concept.

A Headology Witch uses mainly subtle ways to bully and boss around others, most usually villains. Based on Granny Esmeralda Weatherwax from Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, she is a forceful personality, and it shows. Her main means of dealing with foes is Staredown which allows her to send shivers down the spines of anyone foolish enough to cross her path. For foes immune to fear, she can instead opt to pacify them through her power of Influence. If the foes percist or prove too stuborn to make them yield with more subtle ways, she can start rainning down magical blasts to take care of them, in a pinch, and make no mistake; she can really lay the hurt.

Complementing her main arsenal is her power to borrow on an animals consciousness and guide it towards taking action. The broomstick is her preffered mode of transportation, a traditional witch's broom that's made to fly really fast. Finally, she is very skilled, especially when interracting with others. Her intimidation prowess is downright scary and efficient, and she knows a thing or two about the human mind and how to influence it.

Additional Notes:

:arrow: A predominantly Charisma based build, some may find that it's too focused on interraction skills, beyond the point of usefulness. Substracting 10PPs off Charisma, as well a few points in Intimidation and Bluff would free up points to give her more powerful powers. Adding the Sensory Link Extra on her Mind Control should be an obvious choice, if they'd wish to better portray Granny's Borrowing Power.

:arrow: Substracting a few points off Intelligence would also help save some PPs.

:arrow: This build depends on Perception and Area effects, which do not require Attack rolls. However, anyone who would grapple the Headology Witch would be pretty much guaranteed to succesfully pin her either way. You are strongly advised to stick to perception range for your powers. 10 ranks of Attack would require that you spend at the very least 3PPs for 6 ranks of Attack Specialization(Unarmed), which would give you a total of +9 on your Grapple(Thanks to her Negative STR bonus). Still no grappling champion, but she could at least put up a fight. As for her now non-Perception Ranged Attacks, you'd similarly need to apply 3 ranks of the Accurate Power Feat inside the Headology Array, where applicable. A simple matter.

:arrow: A more compelling alternative to the above would instead be to focus on Defense. For a Grapple to initiate, the Grappler must first succeed at an Attack roll. Prevention is the best cure, after all. Changing the tradeoffs to +5 Defense / -5 Toughness, would mean that you could go for a +15 Defense by spending an additional 4PPs(2PPs more for 5 base Defense, and 2PPs more for 10 ranks of Dodge Focus total). You should refund your Defensive Roll ranks into Constitution, which would also gain you a +1 on Fortitude. Be careful, though, since this would really turn her into a Glass Cannon.

About this Build:

The Mud Man is a Powerhouse build, blessed with the Elemental Powers of Mud. A fusion of Marvel's Hydroman and Sandman, with a sprinkle of Hulk, Mud Man prefers to approach combat in a rather straightforward way, attacking foes from mid-range by elongating his body, and lock his foes down by grappling them. For crowd control he can fill the space around him with entrapping mud, or he can create and hurl large chunks of mud at his foes.

Mud Man has 2 main ways of transportation; he can either jump at increadible heights, but at the cost of maneuverability, or he can stretch his mud-made body to great lengths, which is a more flexible, but less fast mode of transportation. Since he is made of mud, water and earth attacks have little to no effect on him. Conversely, Extreme temperatures and fire act by seperating his base components, thus having a great effect on him.

Mud Man is very combat oriented. As such, he only has 4 skills of note, and even then, he is mostly capable at them due to natural ability, rather than trainning. His physical hardiness is also a thing to marvel at, but his body is rather burgeonic, and his willpower is equally lacking. On the other hand, he can assume a watery form to escape unwanted entrapment.

Additional Notes:

:arrow: As discussed in the Spider Hulk Build, you could consider adding the Involuntary Transformation and Normal Identity drawbacks, but doing so would leave you with 12PP worth of character Drawbacks total, which would break caps. Consider dropping vulnerability to fire at minor instead of major intensity.

:arrow: Lowering Intelligence and Charisma should also provide you with some more PPs, since you don't really need these abilities.

:arrow: You could change your Immunity(Water/Earth damage) to Immunity(Water/Earth effects) for no cost, by adding the Limited Flaw.

:arrow: You could replace Snare with Trip as a Linked effect for your Area Damage. In fact, you could add a Damage Trip Area attack as an alternate power, or you could have a single Damage+Snare+Trip. In order to not exceed your Array budget, Snare would have to have the Uncontrollable Flaw, and remove the Obscure(Visual) Power Feat. That would mean that you'd only get the Snare effect to activate only half of the time, but Trip and Damage would still always activate, without needing further flaws.

About this Build:


Based on the heroine Jolt from Thunderbolts, the Bioelectric Speedster would be best described as something between a fragile speedster and a lightning bruiser(quite literally, perhaps). She doesn't have the fine control a regular Electric Controler would exert, but she can direct stored electricity at will throughout her body, giving her excellent movement, agility, and power.

When not attacking, she is almost untouchable, and while she loses her dodge bonus when she does attack, she still has enough defense to avoid attacks, assuming she hasn't run out of range. Grappling her is a difficult task, and even then, she is capable of putting a decent fight, though by no means she prefers to grapple with her foes. If a foe proves particularly elusive, she can opt to stun them with Nerve Overload. If she finds herself cornered by strong opponents, she can move around in blinding speed to take them down simultaneously. She can also, with some effort, unleash small Lightning Bolts at her opponent.

Extremely skilled in acrobatics, she can feint her opponents by simply tensing her muscles, and when walking under cover, she can pass almost completely unnoticed. She CAN be a bit fragile, however, as her fortitude and her Toughness leave quite a bit to be desired, and while she has very high defense, Perception-range attacks do not bother with an attack roll, thus nullifying one of her two biggest defensive advantages. On the flipside, her Reflex is through the roof, and coupled with two ranks of Evasion, her enemies might as well not bother with Area attacks.

Additional Notes:

:arrow: Taking 10 ranks off Dexterity would likely be the first thing you should do, if you wanted to rework the build. It doesn't hurt her Skills by much, and her Saves would average at 8(PL-2), which is adequate. Strenght could also have 2 to 4 points removed.
:arrow: Removing Concentration from her Skill list, and 5 ranks from Notice and Stealth each should save you another 5PPs. Not bad at all.
:arrow: Finally, lowering her Combat Defense should REALLY help save PPs. 5 ranks of Defence and 10 ranks of Dodge Focuse should free up 9PPs. Unfortunately, that would mean that she would have a rather unimpressive +2 on her flat-footed defense. This means that, thanks to the Distracting Flaw, attacking would often render her a sitting duck. Doubling the ranks of her Bioelectric Control Array, in order to buy off the flaw, at least for Lightning Flurry, should become top priority.
:arrow: Boosting her movement ranks, and adding Quickness to the mix should bring her closer to traditional Speedster builds.
:arrow: Immunity to Lightning Damage/Effects, even if only with the Limited Flaw, would be thematically appropriate.

About this Build:

Gifted in the handling of the spear, the Spaceknight Dragoon is straddling the line between the Costumed Adventurer and the Power Suit. Focused on Skills and Feats, his only means of fighting is his trusty weapon of choice, an alien manufactured spear imbued with advanced technology that allows it to cut through everything. He is also equiped with a protective suit of armor that also provides him with a modest measure of maneuverability.

The Spaceknight Dragoon's reliance on his Photon Spear to do combat is his main glaring weakness, meaning that he may fall victim to disarming attempts, in order to take him out of combat. Fortunately, he is still capable of assisting in battle, by distracting his foes and setting them up for his allies. He is certainly tough enough to withstand abuse, and once he recovers his weapon, he returns to being a threat. Another weakness it the obvious lack of ranged attacks. Throwing your weapon doesn't always work, but it might, in a pinch, when all other options are exhausted. Just make sure to recover it before it's too late.

Additional Notes:

:arrow: For a more 'spacey' feel, this build would require quite a bit of reworking. A first step would be lowering it's physical stats, as well as it's Fortitude and Reflex defences, which should free quite a few points.

:arrow: 30PPs on skills might be a bit of an overkill. Removing 5 points from most of the other skills should free up 10PPs.

:arrow: The freed up points should fuel the Space Dragoon Suit. You can add Enhanced Abilities. Finally, if you have enough PPs left, you could add a Mighty Damage power, for when you are left unarmed.

About this Build:

And now, for a build based on an existing Superhero. Elias Wirtham goes by the alias Cardiac, in the Marvel Universe. An excellent surgeon, and dabbler in techno-tinkering, Elias replaced his heart with a Beta-Particle reactor, and added a vibranium weave mess under his skin, that greatly enhances his physical attributes. He also carries a mean staff that allows him to channel Beta-Particle energy from his heart into it, and in turn unleash it by creating a powerful electric blast. This powerful combination of physical and mental prowess make Cardiac am effective hero.

I took a few liberties with the build, mainly, the Pulse Staff's capabilities. An electric attack that puts a strain on a heart, or outright shocks it, is certainly within reason, but adding the option to act as a healing defibrilator is perhaps pushing it into lightning-can-do-anything territory. Still, Beta Particles could easily handwave this, so at least it's not a case of regular lightning. Other than that, there's nothing else really to note on this build, except for perhaps having high Knowledge(Life Sciences) and Medicine ranks, which, considering Elias is a surgeon is appropriate.

One final thing to note here is Flight. Folding it under the same array as his offensive powers may seem weird, if not counterintuitive, but that has more to do with representing the source material's chosen way of transportation; summoning a mechanical hawk-thingy(that's a perfectly academic term, btw) and using his Pulse staff as a glider handle, after connecting it in the hawk-thingy's hooks. Thus, doing so robs him of the ability to attack, and attacking of the ability to stay aloft.

Additional Notes:

:arrow: No particularly noteworthy way to save PPs, really, other than reducing his skills by 20 to 60 ranks(5-15PPs).
:arrow: Extra PPs could go to his Attributes, or add another rank on his Pulse Staff. Edited by Vahnyu

About this Build:

Rising up, back on the street, is the Tiger-Man, a superhero who is imbued with the powers of the tiger. Blessed with great power and enhanced senses, Tiger-Man serves as a solid combatant, and an excellent tracker. Looking at his Damage Block, you'd be inclined to think that Tiger-Man is rather straightforward on how he goes about his business, but this old cat has a few tricks up his fur. Between Acrobatic Bluff, Distract, and Improved Trip, the Tiger Man has plenty of options to soften up his targets, before he or his teammates go for the finishing blow, and he has a good enough mobility to run rounds on minions.

Unfortunately, Tiger-Man's ranged pressence is non-existant, and his speed, while miles better than the average person, is nothing to write home about. However, his defence and accuracy are top-notch, and no foe will catch him by surprise, so long as it makes noise or exudes smell.

Additional Comments:

:arrow: The build presented here represents an innate assortment of powers that are always on. One thing you could do, is add the Drawbacks Involuntary Transformation and Normal Identity, in order to represent a Were-Tiger, as well as grant you about 8PPs.

:arrow: Alternatively, the powers could be granted through a mystical talisman. Bringing the Enhanced traits under one Device alone would save you 8PPs, while bringing all his powers under the Device would save 9PPs, and also leave you with 2PPs to spend inside the Device.

:arrow: Raising Tiger-Man's Felline Movement Array by at least 1 rank should greatly enhance his maneuverability options, and let him take the most advantage of his Move-By Action and Takedown Attack Feats.

:arrow: Another rank of Evasion never hurts, nor does adding other Combat Feats, like Grappling Finesse, Improved Grab, Improved Throw, Instant Up, etc.

About this Build:

Ahh, the Power Glove. If there ever was a game controller that ran on pure "Rule of Cool", the Power Glove would be it. Sadly, it never really took, the imprecise controls being the main reason. But let's suppose that one of the Power Gloves manufactured wasn't all that bad. In fact, what if it had the most precise controls out of any controller ever made? What if that Power Glove could really bring your game to life? Meet the Powerglove User, a guru amongst videogame aficionados, who chanced upon this one-of-a-kind add on, and found out about it's powers!

The Power Glove is his main arsenal, capable of bringing attacks from videogames into the realworld, simulating powers the videogame characters possess, and control machinery. Furthermore, the Power Glove enhances the user's motor functions and analysing capacity. However, not anyone is capable of yielding it's awesome powers; in order to do so, one must understand the finer points of it's design.

So, what about the human, behind the Power Glove? He's certainly got what it takes. Not only does he possess the needed Knowledge (Popular Culture), he also knows his way in and out of a Computer. Getting his hands on this marvelous artifact is but a testament of his incredible luck, and he can harness the glove and how cool it looks on him to inspire his allies into greatness!

Additional Notes:

:arrow: Nothing noteworthy really, to save points. Instead, the concept of a Power Glove diving into virtual reality and pulling game elements into the real world has plenty of room for costumization. Don't bring back the hero's sword; instead, by using summon, you can bring the hero himself!

About this Build:

This is the Space Warrior, the knight of the future. A normal human, under ordinary circumstances, he can transform at the flick of his wrist, gainning powers fueled from the intricate energies of outer space. Capable of Flight even in space, the Space Warrior charges into battle with his Space Blade, a powerful weapon capable of cutting through the roughest materials. He is also equipped with Plasma Blasters, laser machineguns that he can employ with the utmost of accuracies to nail dodging enemies. Finally, his Missile Blasters work similarly, but in a larger area.

Space Warrior has a few skills, most notably Knowledge(Cosmology) and Knowledge(Galactic Lore), which help him when dealing with alien forces. Of particular note is also that all three of his saves are high, and combined with his Toughness, make Space Warrior a very tough opponent to go up against. That is not, however, to say that this build is not without it's shortcommings. The Space Warrior's grapple is just barely mediocre, to the point that dedicated grapplers can frequently pin him down. His offensive repertoire, while strong and to the point, is rather limited, and perhaps too straightforward, though his excellent mastery of the Space Blade can offer him for some more team-friendly options.

Additional Comments:

:arrow: This build could very well be represented as a powerarmor-using hero. Just gathering and putting all of his powers under one device would yield about 16PPs inside his device, for more powers, or outside his device, for mor Skills/Feats.

M&M Dungeons and Dragons

dd123.jpg

Preface:

Dungeons and Dragons was the first tabletop roleplaying game that became commercially available, and while it had its ups and downs throughout its publication, it has remained the most consistanly successful one, both in sales figures and in public awareness. It is also somewhat an unbalanced if not broken mess of a game(or games, if you talk about each of its editions seperately, the 4th one notwithstanding), especially in regards to its character class design, which is the main bulk of a player character's abilities.

 

The advent of the d20 system saw a rise in offshoots, roleplaying games borrowing heavily from DnD in terms of mechanics, while trying something different with the fluff and scope of the game. While these new games enjoyed varying levels of success, some of them, such as Gamma World, the 7th Sea, Star Wars(Especially the Saga Edition), and Call of Cthulhu, managed a great degree of identity and commercial success, not enough to usurp the reign of DnD, but enough to be considered one of the greats. Mutants and Masterminds, the system we are using in this site, is one such game, and the degree of differentiation was so big, that the system didn't take much before it effectively grew into grew into a monster of its own.

 

One of the things M&M sports is a point-buy system, which levels the field between different player characters of comperatively similar point cost by quite a big a degree. Certainly, it is still quite possible to make a character who is way more powerful or far too weaker than his point cost would indicate, but the careful scrutiny from a watchful GM, which the system encourages, helps mitigate such concerns. Which brings us to the topic I'd like to explore: Making it possible to play a DnD-esque game, using the Mutants and Masterminds rules-system.

 

A Disclamer:

It is nigh-impossible to translate DnD into M&M, and even if one were to make several concenssions, the end result would still be very different from what it is to play DnD. Therefor, I won't even bother with that. What I aim to do, is find a way to approximate the feel of DnD as much as possible. That includes making a few choice judgement calls were needed. The characters created won't be outright superhuman, not even the spellcasters, but they will be close. Very close, indeed.

 

Additionally, let me state it here and now that what I create is DEFINITELY NOT the very definitive M&M conversion of D&D. It's nothing more than me playing around with the M&M rules and character creation, for my amusement. If you wish to play using the archetypes I'll present, or even if you simply want to borrow ideas, by all means be my guest, but if you don't, if you outright disagree with my views and ideas, then by all means feel free to ignore them. I won't tell you how to play your game, or what you should want. M&M greatly encourages players and Game Masters to actuallize their vision, while still working under a strict rules-set, and you should not, at any point, feel restricted by my thoughts and opinions.

 

Some Ground Rules:

  • I will be working under the assumption that the House Rules of this site are in effect. By NO means does this make the DnD characters I create 'legal' for play in this site.
  • M&M has a few things that don't quite work thematically for DnD, such as the Computers skill, and the house-rulled Knowledge skills. I will be modifying them for the purposes of this conversion were applicable, such as reflavoring Computers as Magical Devices.
  • I will be working for 3.5 edition classes, since I have an actual familiarity with them.
  • The end results won't be 100% 1-to-1 reflective of their DnD inspirations/counterparts. I will instead be aiming to make the archetypes as iconic and evocative as possible, and within reason.
  • DnD character creation works on several different fronts, from selecting your character's race to selecting skills and feats. That would be very difficult and counter-intuitive to manage in M&M, especially considering the fact that M&M works with hard Player Level-based Caps . I will instead seek to make an approximation. Classes are Archetypes. Races are Templates applied on top of Classes.
  • The net cost of any given combination of Race and Class should be the same, 150PPs for a PL10 character.
  • Equipment is handled very differently in M&M, from how it operates in DnD. Instead, I will be operating under the assumption that every character class, including spellcaster classes such as the wizard or the druid, derives many of its powers from quasi-magical or outright magical equipment(Devices), for simplicity's shake.
  • While I'll be following the site format for Character Sheets, I won't add a few things, such as the DC Block, exact lifting power, etcetera, due to the way Races and Classes will work.
  • The end result will be working under some slightly wonky PL Caps. This is unavoidable on my part, but I'll try to make things clear where possible.
  • I will be working under the assumption that no multiclassing is possible. It would be sheer folly on my part to do so, due to the complex mathematics between stating/balancing the classes.
  • Similar to how Melee and Ranged are valid targets for Attack Focus, I will be using Weapons and Spells. That is because in DnD, those two are wide enough descriptors so as to encompass every attack between them. That, and if they were subject to Attack Specialization, the crunch would simply not work for the PL Caps.

 

Closing Words:

With all of the above statements in mind, I will start by creating the Templates needed for our Characters' Races. I won't be doing much in the way of race and class fluff, focusing instead on their mechanical aspects.

Totals: Abilities (0) + Combat (6) + Saving Throws (8) + Skills (0) + Feats (0) + Powers (16) - Drawbacks (0) = 30/30 Power Points

 


 

Dwarves are naturally sturdy folk, but they're not very quick on their feet. They have a natural resistance to magical effects, and they are swift tunnelers, capable of digging at a quick pace. They are also at place underground, and in poorly lit or completely dark places, since they were both born in and molded by darkness.

 

The -1 Defense / +1 Toughness tradeoff translates as the base Dwarf having 1 less Defense Rank versus 2 more Constitution Ranks, for a net effect of 0.

Totals: Abilities (2) + Combat (10) + Saving Throws (8) + Skills (0) + Feats (1) + Powers (9) - Drawbacks (0) = 30/30 Power Points

 


 

Elves are lithe and agile, but they are not as sturdy as most races. They excel at working fast, and they are naturally inclined towards the mystical arts, being able to naturally sense the workings of magic. Never-aging, and requiring no sleep, they are able to sidestep the bounds of reality and appear somewhere else, at their own leisure.

 

The +1 Defense / -1 Toughness tradeoff translates as Elves having 1 more rank in defense, in return for 2 ranks in Constitution, for a net effect of 0PPs.

Totals: Abilities (4) + Combat (6) + Saving Throws (8) + Skills (0) + Feats (1) + Powers (11) - Drawbacks (0) = 30/30 Power Points

 


 

While Gnomes aren't known for their strenght, they are very capable fighters in their own right. Their tunneling capabilities rival those of Dwarves, but where their sturdier brethren prefer direct confrontation and defending against magical attacks, Gnomes prefer sneaking in thanks to their natural aptitude in hiding and going through openings most other races are too tall to traverse.

 

The +1 Weapon Attack / -1 Weapon Damage tradeoff translates as Gnomes having just as much attack as most races, but having a +1 on their Weapon Attack due to the Attack Focus(Weapon), at the expense of having 2 less ranks of Strenght total. Shrinking is included in the calculations, and the net effect is not quite 0.

Skirting the line between Humans and Elves, the Half-Elves borrow their strenghts from both of these races. Not as agile and frail as Elves, nor quite as adaptable as Humans, Half-Elves are nevertheless more than capable enough of carving a name for themselves.

 

Skill Mastery allows Half Elves the ability to master 4 additional skills that their class gives them ranks.

Half-Orcs, similarly to Half-Elves, borrow their strengths from both Humans and Orcs, being physically capable but also adaptable as well. They are much stronger than most other races, and they can also travel at a faster pace. Their naturally hardened muscles shield them from most forms of impacts, and while they aren't profficient at digging, they have a natural aptitude for seeing in the dark.

 

The -1 Weapon Attack / +1 Weapon Damage tradeoff translates as Half-Orcs having 1 rank less at Attack, in return for 2 ranks of Strenght. In order to properly meet the PL Caps for spellcasting-based classes, Half-Orcs also have the Attack Focus [spells] for a total cost of 1PP. As with Half-Elves, Half-Orcs can choose to master up to 4 additional skills that their class confers to them.

Like Gnomes, Halflings are short of stature but large of heart. Focusing more on land-based movement, Halflings are among the fastest races, and they can expertly traverse even the most rough of terrains. Halflings are among the most naturally intelligent people.

 

The +1 Weapon Attack / -1 Weapon Damage tradeoff translates as Halflings having just as much attack as most races, but having a +1 on their Weapon Attack due to the Attack Focus(Weapon), at the expense of having 2 less ranks of Strenght total. The +1 Defense / -1 Toughness tradeoff similarly translates as Halflings having just as much Defense and Constitution as most races, modified, though, by their small size.

Finally, Humans are the most common and widespread race. Though they lack a clearly defined racial identity between them, Humans are adaptable and well learned, capable of performing in various circumstances and conditions. Though once decided, their path is set in stone, Humans exhibit great potential to become anything they want.

 

Humans can gain 20 ranks in skills, and so long as they, combined with their Class, don't break PL Caps, they are free to assign them as they wish, even gainning skills their class doesn't normally have ranks at. From the total of skills they have at least 5 Ranks, they can choose up to 4 additional skills to master. They can gain 2 Feats or Ranks of Feats of their choice, so long as they don't break ranks in doing so(Which means that Feats such as Attack Focus for any Class, and Luck for certain classes, will be ineligible). They can acquire 4 Ranks in their base Abilities, except for Strenght and Constitution(Doing so would break Caps). Finally, they can choose to assign 3 Ranks in their 3 base Saves, so long as they, combined with their Class of choice, don't break the PL+5 Rank limit.

A big, sturdy warrior from the wild lands, the Barbarian enters the frontlines swinging his mighty two-handed weapon at his enemies with little regard at finesse. The only thing that matters to her is getting the job done, no matter how messy things turn out. As a result, Barbarians get a bad reputation as savage brutes, which, while not entirely unjustified, it is still quite misinformed; Barbarians haven't managed to survive on their own in the harsh wilderness by disregarding adaptability and skillset aqcuirement, and while they know nothing about mathematics or literature, they can patch up and tend to theirs and their fellow tribesmen wounds just fine.

 

Their most infamous deeds, however, were accomplished not by their combat trainning, but by that which has come to be reffered to as the 'barbarian rage'; a trance-like state the Barbarian is able to enter, that enables him to focus incredible physical bursts of strength for limited amounts of time. Doing so is actually very taxing, and renders the Barbarian unable to access his more refined trainning and experience he has acrued over a lifetime, in favor for relying on his more animalistic instincts. It is this trait that has mislabled the Barbarians to the minds of the common folk as unthinking machines of war.

 

Aditional Notes:

:arrow: Due to the way the Barbarian's enhanced traits and bonuses work, relying on which of the two Barbarian Ferocity modes is active, and for simplicity's shake, I have kept the numbers formated as T/R, where T represents the number that applies when Barbarian Trainning is active, and R represents the number that applies when the Boost effect from Barbarian Rage takes place.

:arrow: Boost 26 is perhaps an oversimplification of how Boost works, that I took in order to keep things from becoming more clunky. As such, I've made a few choice judgement calls on how it works. Specifically, while the entry for Boost says that it normaly loses 1PP per round, 26 rounds of Boost is way too much. Instead, I ruled that each round it loses 1PP from EACH trait it boosts. The Total Fade extra applies to the power as a whole, and as soon as the first boosted trait loses all of its PPs and Fades, all traits have their PP drop to 0 at the same time. What that means is that Boost 26 works for 4 rounds at maximum capacity, and then it stops working.

:arrow: Since Boost affects the Barbarian's Strenght, and as a result, his Caps, I have rulled that while the effect is active, the Barbarian can't switch the Array, an ilegal move that would break Caps. As an alternative, more undisputable solution, instead of the Action extra, the Duration extra could be applied, which would force the Barbarian to not switch the arrays, in order to maintain, and thus keep, the effects from Boost(At least until they naturally wear off).

 :arrow: Barbarians can name their two-handed weapon of choice.

Traveling performers, well-learned scholars, cunning orators, aspiring adventurers. A Bard holds many faces, and exhibits great skill in accomplishing many different tasks. They aren't the best in combat, though they can run annoyance thanks to their handy crossbows, but their array of supporting skills is invaluable and sought out by adventuring companies. They don't cast spells like dedicated spellcasters, but their skillful performance with their instrument often turns magical.

 

Another major factor to Bards being in high demand is the prevalance of the superstition that having a good performer brings good luck. It has yet to be confirmed whether this holds true or false, but the matter of fact is that the pressence of a bard can do wonders for group morale.

 

Additional Notes:

:arrow: Bards can choose their two Perform specializations, and they can rename their instrument of choice to their liking. The Instrument is restricted to anyone having 10 ranks on a certain Perform specialization.

People of faith and miracles, Clerics are pious adventurers who rely on their gods to grant them and their companions the strength they need to overcome adversity. Clad in armor, the Clerics support the adventuring group from the backlines by alternating between slinging holy arrows  at their foes or casting healing spells at their friends, but should the need arise, they enter the fray by swinging their weapon of choice, forgiveness, a Morningstar that is oft said to be heavy with Mercy. Studious as they are faithful, they are a very focused lot, and their words are often found appeasing to the ears of listeners.

 

That said, Clerics hold a special enmity against all creatures undead, not only having the proper tools to dispose of them, but also being naturally blessed with an uncanny sense that enables them to sniff out any such abberation. That is not to say that they are opposed to anything non-living, and Clerics can sometimes be 'seen' conversing with the spirits of the departed during funerals, working in their capacity to make the passing of the unrest souls as painless and smooth as possible.

 

Additional Notes:

:arrow: As with the Barbarian Archetype, Boost works for 5 rounds at full capacity before all traits boosted are reset to their normal values.

About this build.

 

Based on Nero, the protagonist of the Devil May Cry 4 game, this build represents a demon hunter, someone whose job is to hunt demons, who himself has some demonic power imbued in him, usually manifesting in a extra phantom arm. Why does he have that arm? Perhaps he was born with demonic blood flowing through his veins, or perhaps he was a victim of unholy experimentation. Whatever the case, he employs the arm to grapple and bring foes away from him to close range, where he can pummel them at his own leisure, or keep them far away and occupied, while he takes  care of another threat. He is equipped with the Tri-Morphing Arma, a versatile and highly magical transforming weapon, that can change it's shape to the powerful Durandal Red Rose, the accurate and fast firing Revolver Blue Rose, and the demonic Katana Yamato, which temporally enhances his demonic powers by transforming into a powerful protective aura shaped as a ghostly knight. When thus transformed, the Demon Hunter is incredibly fast and impervious to all lesser forms of damage, and not only does his phantom arm becomes extremely powerful, he also gains a second equally powerful one.

 

The Demon Hunter with Phantom Arm is extremely agile and maneouverable, and while he lacks a hard crowd control attack, he can compensate due to his trainning. Very skilled and elusive, he fights as if possessed, preferring to stick close to his foes and performing high speed combos, while using them as a shield against incoming ranged attacks. He greatly favors dodging over taking hits, though he's not entirely frail, and even when immobilised, he can still maintain enough concentration to roll with the damage, most of the time. Particular areas of expertise include knowledge of the arcane, insight to peoples' (and demons') character, and an uncanny ability to fast talk or taunt his enemies. His favored tactic is unloading fire to his enemies from a distance, until he is within range to continuously rush them with charging sword attacks.

 

Additional Notes:

 

:arrow: As you can see, while Nero's weapons are all indistinct between them, I chose to have them all folded under one weapon, with the property that it morphs itself. That is because, with perhaps the sole exception of the Devil Trigger transformation brought about by Yamato, he couldn't be using both weapons at once. It was thus a necessary concession in order to save PPs.

:arrow: Some major reworking would be required, in order to leave the Yamato and the Blue Rose/Red Queen seperate. Halving their respective ranks by cutting back on extras/power feats and the like, removing a few feats such as Elusive Target or Taunt, lowering Abilities(Particularly, Strength, by 10 ranks), etc.

:arrow: Originally, Yamato was going to be portrayed by the use of Boost. Instead, I opted for the simpler Enhanced Trait format, adding the Duration and Fades flaws to represent a temporary burst of power. Since the Fading powers are linked, all powers stop working as soon as the first power loses its PPs completely (5 rounds).

About This Build

 

The Spellcrafter is a master of magical spell creation, well-learned and experienced in both the theory and application of magic. Not only is he able to create spells and magical objects on his own, the Spellcrafter is able to combine on the fly the basic components of spells in order to produce stronger and more complex variations of those, or instead, opt to use self-buffing spells. So long as he can cast his spells, he remains capable in both close and ranged combat, he can take care of large groups of enemy combatants, and exploit the weaknesses of his foes.

 

The Spellcrafter IS, however, quite physically vulnerable, and he greatly relies on avoiding hits, rather than tanking them. Furthermore, without his magic, he is rendered effectively powerless. Aside from being well-versed in arcane lore and artifact crafting, he is an able diplomat, both reasonable, calming, and insightful. The Spellcrafter's main strength lies not in brute force, but in sheer versatility.

 

Additional Notes:

 

  :arrow: Instead of his main repertoire being innately learned spells, they could be stored in an item that focuses power, such as a mage staff or wand. Saving 23 to 24PPs in this manner could prove helpful in making room for some much needed versatility outside of magic.

  :arrow: Skills and 10 points of Enhanced Intelligence could prove a good investment, as well as the Master Plan feat, to take advantage of that +10 INT

About This Build

 

Most of the time, the Flying Brick as an archetype represents someone who is incredibly powerful, but lacks in skills, both in and out of combat. Being able to take a hit and dish out punishment, while also having the ability to fly, is the golden standard by which all Superheroes are judged. However, for all their strenght, they lack extensive trainning in properly utilising their body to its utmost potential, and as a result, whenever they are denied their powers, they become punching bags even for martial artists. Taking inspiration from Dragonball's Son Gohan's super-heroic identity, the Great Saiyaman, who was a combination of parody of the Sentai genre(visually speaking, at least) and drawing inspiration from Superman, the Superhuman Costumed Martial Artist greatly mitigates that problem, by being adept enough at fighting even without any of his powers, and as an added bonus, whenever he fights at full strength, he is a force to be reckoned with. He could either be an alien with inborn powers, or a human that was somehow bestowed said powers, but the fact is that the SCMA trained for the better part of his life, not as an after-thought, and as a result, he can go toe-to-toe with the baddest, meanest menaces out there. His powers greatly enhance his ki, and he is able to put it to good use in either empowering his strength, or directing it outwardly in the form of energy blasts and beams.

 

Very skilled, his trainning focuses on his acrobatic capabilities, and his concentration is top-notch. While most of the time he prefers to talk things out, if the occasion arises, he can instead exude a powerful aura of Ki that enhances his pressence and acts as a warning sign to would be attackers. His is incredibly fast, and can do tons of heavy lifting, and while he can tank hits like most Flying Bricks, he lacks the innate protection against  lesser forms of damage, and prefers to avoid hits when possible. Finally, even without his superhuman powers, the SCMA has close to olympic-level-athlete physical capabilities.

 

Additional Notes:

 

  :arrow: Instead of being inately superhuman, the Superhuman Costumed Martial Artist could instead emphasize his Sentai roots more, rather than his Superman ones, by having all of his powers be part of a power-costume.

  :arrow: Another option would be to make all of his physical abilities be enhanced, instead. Adding that Enhanced Strenght inside his power array would also increase the potential for his other powers

  :arrow: Yet alternatively, one could axe everything but his Enhanced Strenght and Flight.

  :arrow: Finally, you could reduce his skills and Feats by 5 points each, removing things such as Stealth, Diplomacy, Knowledge [Tactics], Evasion, Fearless, and Grappling Finesse.

  :arrow: Adding Impervious Toughness would further accentuate SCMA's Flying Brick Roots.

  :arrow: Adding more Feats, on the other hand, would serve towards giving the character a greater repertoire outside of his powers.
