Interwebs Treasures #20

Once again it has been a while since I’ve done one of these. I could possibly repeat some stuff. We’ll see…

First V&V Character – Gran Montaña

Here’s a character I cobbled up over the last few days. I had no idea when I was writing this up just how tough he could be to take down. The combination of armor and invulnerability, plus having a pretty high Power with which to roll with incoming attacks that hit, would make him a fairly difficult to wear down. At least by starting Standard power level PCs.

This is a pretty simple character build. I just thought of an easy concept to play with.

Oh yeah, he weighs over 16,000 pounds. I like the idea of this guy having to be transported in some heavy truck, and cracking the concrete when he moves. I like the idea of a telekinetic ally lifting him up and dropping him on opponents.

Just a quick sketch of what he might look like.

A V&V Update

I’ve been digging deeper into The Mighty Protectors – Villains & Vigilantes 3.0 over the last few days. I created my first character. I’ve been looking at the excellent Marvel Comics character write ups at MP Writeups.

I never thought I’d say this, but I think this game may be a superior superhero RPG to Champions. It’s at least just as good. I think that with regard to game balance it is superior. The combination of limits on the point totals of basic characteristics and abilities helps, but I think the real genius is limiting the average damage of attacks based on the total point value of the character. Keeps things in line.
