|I've recently been playing around with a random superhero/supervillain NPC generator (based on the one I described here), and today it came up with an NPC I found so amusing I decided to post it.
Check out both the name and the background - it looks like the big guy from Necessary Evil had a daughter, and she's picking up where her dad left off!
|Sarah "Doctor Destruction" Coller
Attributes: Agility d6, Smarts d4, Spirit d8, Strength d4, Vigor d6
Skills: Boating d4, Climbing d4, Intimidation d4, Lockpicking d4, Notice d4+2, Riding d4, Stealth d4, Survival d4, Swimming d4, Throwing d4
Charisma: -, Pace: 6, Parry: 2, Toughness: 5
Hindrances: Young (Major), Cautious (Minor), Big Mouth (Minor)
Edges: Arcane Background (Super Powers), Alertness, Beast Master
Background: Little Girl. She wants to 'conquer' something to do with 'the world'.
* Leaping (1): Gravity boots, leap 4" vertically or 8" horizonally.
* Invisibility (4): Cloaking device.
* Flight (1): Jetpack, can fly at normal Pace.
* Healing (1): Nanotech medical kit.
* Animal Control (2): Control animals using special headband.
* Telepathy (1): Psychic projection skullcap.
She's still just a kid (and not a very smart one at that), but she's got spirit (literally) - and is already planning to conquer the world
The generator still needs some work (including a much larger variety of choices), but you can view a sample list of NPCs here. Some of them can be quite amusing, although (mostly because they're randomly generated) they're not optimal - for example the aptly named "King Cannon", despite having a brutally powerful ranged attack, only has d4 in Shooting.
