Random Supers (or "Dr Destruction's daughter")

#1 Postby Zadmar » Thu Sep 27, 2012 2:35 pm

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
Race: Human
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'.
Super Powers:
* 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.

I've been looking for a Superhero generator like the one you described. Is it still on your site? Does it use the ruleset from SPC 2nd edition? Some of my players have difficulty making choices, so a random generator for supers would definitely help them out.

It's available here, however I don't yet own a copy of SPC2, so the powers are still based on the old PP costs.

I like King Cannon with d4 shooting. So he'll miss the PCs. He'll hit something, buildings, cars, etc. The Hero's will spend 1/2 their time dealing the collateral damage

I'd be tempted to change his name to Loose Cannon. :twisted:

If only you could combine this generator with the combat simulator, so that it would generate tons of heroes and determine which one is the strongest. Although that might take the magic out of character creation...

I don't know if I'm going to use this. I already have plans for a Fourth Reich in Necessary Evil. Hitler is cloned and spliced with a starfish because they can regenerate and are basically immortal, Mengele is a patchwork golem/mad scientist, and a couple of other archetypes. I'm thinking a "brick" a la T-1000, and a "speedster" named Blitzkrieg.

But I could introduce a rival Omega cell...
