[Writeups.org] [3E] Pit Bulls, American Ninja, Silver Sable

Postby Ghostwise » Thu May 19, 2011 9:12 am

Welcome !

The crew at writeups.org (a site with which you're hopefully familiar, if not you want to click on the link) has long had an interest in dual-statting parts of the site for Mutants & Masterminds players.

The main results so far have been two tools (OMACS for M&M 2nd edition and OMACS II for M&M 3rd/DCA) that ensure that we remain coherent in our work, and allow writeups.org readers who play M&M to derive ballpark values for non-dual-statted entries. There have also been threads here so I could train.

Now it's on again, including revised - possibly finalised - profiles for the people discussed in the previous threads. I'll see - very tentatively - if I can release about four entries a week. That'd be 200 entries a year, which is good since that way I can cover current writeups.org content in a mere 23 years ; assuming I'll then need 35 years to cover the content released during those 23, I should be fine unless a new edition of M&M is released within the next 50/60 years.

Please do not hesitate to comment and ask questions - I'd like to improve my M&M skills as quickly as possible, and that is way easier with feedback. Thank you.

Thanks ! :D


Now that I have this stuff under my big nose again I'm making two corrections :

- the FAQ excerpt stated that the strict PL of a character could be derived from the highest PL trade-off. It's not true - some characters might have very high Skills, Powers, Luck Advantage Ranks or whatever. Fixing this.

- Starfire's laser shouldn't be equipment but a device since it's very rare and a gamechanger

Here's Starfire's buddy Thump. I don't exactly expect the crowd to go wild ("OMG OMG it's Thump !!!1!") but you can't have Starfire without having Thump.

Pistolera was already in my two previous training threads and sparked an interesting discussion.

============================================

Pistolera
DC Universe


Biography, characterisation, pictures, power description and the like at writeups.org

Image


Abilities
Strength 1, Stamina 2, Agility 1, Dexterity 4, Fighting 5, Intellect 0, Awareness 1, Presence 1

Averaged PL 6.2

Powers
Rapid fire • 3 points
Ranged Damage 3, Multiattack, Limited 2 (Only when wielding two useable, loaded handguns) • Descriptor: Skill • Descriptor of damage as per handguns (usually Ballistic)

Devices
Costume Pistolera occasionally sports a modified version of her Gunbunny costume (if she does, she won't wear the vest listed in her equipment) • 8 points
Noticeable, Removable
Protection 4 (Limited 1 - to Ballistic, Edged, Impaling and similar Descriptors)
Communication 2 • Descriptor: Radio
Enhanced Fortitude 2 (Limited 1 - to light-based attacks)

Combat Advantages
Defensive Roll 2, Improved Aim, Improved Critical 1 (Firearms), Improved Initiative, Power Attack, Quick Draw

Other Advantages
Equipment 4

Skills
Athletics 3 (+4), Expertise (Guns & Ammo) 8 (+8), Intimidation 2 (+3), Perception 3 (+4), Ranged combat (Firearms) 6 (+10), Stealth 3 (+4), Vehicles 2 (+6) (Limited 2 - Common land vehicles only)

Offense
Initiative +6
Unarmed +5, Close, Damage 1
Pistols +10, Ranged, Damage 3 Ballistic, Multiattack (from Powers), Critical 19-20
Sniper rifle +10, Ranged, Damage 5 Ballistic, Critical 18-20

Power levels
Trade-off areas. Attack & Effect PL 8 (rifle), Dodge/Toughness PL 7, Parry/Toughness PL 5, Fort & Will PL 5
Point total 81 Attributes 30, Defences 15, Powers 3, Devices 8, Skills 14, Advantages 11. Equiv. PL 6.

Notes
This one saw some work since she can pick up ordinary equipement and have it perform exceptionally well. With this approach it's a property of the character and not the equipment (so random people who pick her guns can't shoot like she does), and there are no corner cases thanks to the Descriptor (it can't be affected by abilities that affect superhuman powers, it can be copied by abilities that effect skills, there's no need to slap on an Innate which would make it too costly, etc.)


===================================================================================

Her writeups.org profile also has the stats she had back when she was Gunhawk's spotter Gunbunny, so let's have those for M&M too or people will complain :

I'll see if I can post one entry a day for a bit at the beginning - it's easier for me to have a pool of entries to do HTMLisation tests.

Slagg and Coven are not exactly A-list names, but they're convenient, generic PL 7-8ish villains that have recently been added to writeups.org. You can't have every game session feature Wolverine and Batman, after all.

=============================================================

Slagg
DC Universe


Biography, characterisation, pictures, power description and the like at writeups.org

Image


Abilities
Strength 2, Stamina 3, Agility 1, Dexterity 1, Fighting 5, Intellect 0, Awareness 1, Presence 1

Flamethrowers: Damage 9 Ranged • Descriptor: Fire
Tactical radio: Communication 2 • Descriptor: Radio

Combat Advantages
All-Out Attack, Defensive roll 2, Ranged attack 4

Other Advantages
None demonstrated

Athletics 2 (+4), Perception 2 (+3), Ranged combat (Flamethrowers) 4 (+5). Possibly some military Skills.

Offense

*Without Defensive Roll bonus.
** With power armour
*** With power armour without Defensive Roll Bonus

Motivation
Mercenary

Complications
Temper Very aggressive, particularly to defend his wife
Power loss Not perceiving something because he's wearing the suit's cumbersome helmet, or being vulnerable because he's not wearing it
Relationship With Coven
Relationship Serves the Crimelord under threat of death to her relatives


Image


Power levels
Trade-off areas. Attack & Effect PL 9, Dodge/Toughness PL 8, Parry/Toughness PL 8, Fort & Will PL 5
Point total 99 Attributes 28, Defences 11, Devices 49, Skills 4, Advantages 7. Equiv. PL 07.


Notes
I'm a bit uneasy writing power armour as Enhanced Strength and Fortitude - what if Superman wears it ? Should it boost his Strength and Toughness ? The reasoning here is that the campaign's PL would make it moot, the assumption being that strong guys are already at their cap and couldn't legally use the Enhanced Strength and Toughness.

As you've noted, I'm not exactly going for the big names. But as it turns out I've recently updated and polished our very popular entry for Batwoman (Katherine Rebecca Kane) because she's awesome, so here are the M&M stats.

Notes
Had Kate been a build rather than a writeup I'd have undoubtedly built her at PL10, but as it turns out her combat performance doesn't align that way. An offence Bonus at +14 backed with solid Strength and Power Attack (and she does use Power Attack an awful lot) makes for one dangerous high-end hand-to-hand fighter, but a PL10 martial artist is Shiva-level.

I like that, honestly. If PL10 is a level where you're going to find people strong enough to topple buildings, and people who can shoot the equivalent of a tank gun out of their eyes, people who can fight them on an even level with no more explanation than "really good at kung fu" should be extremely rare. Assuming it's not a genre where kung fu explicitly does let you topple buildings and shoot death rays, anyway.

I like the thread, and I like the web site. Please continue.

Been a lot of DC characters so here's a Marvel one, who has already been discussed in my training threads. This set of stats will list Taliesin as a helper, since the approach for the shield is IIRC based on his Captain America build.

The trick is to know that the martial artist archetype in the books is not an archetypal martial artist (especially in a DCU context - the stock M&M character would flatten Black Canary in a ring match with no super powers allowed). 8)

Say I was wondering: Since Skill Bonus* also affects your character's PL perhaps that should also be taken into account for Average PL?

I think it ought to be because skills like Intimidation, Deception and Persuasion are like having limited versions of the Affliction Power. They can have a strong effect on the course of the game.

*Maximum skill bonus is equal to PL+10
