[NE] Help with NPCs

#1 Postby DaRealJudas » Tue Jan 06, 2009 10:46 am

Okay, there’s another question for all of you. I need two NPCs for my super-powered campaign. Their powers are based (rip-offs What?) on Magneto and Graviton from Marvel.

So I need a set of powers and their modifiers that fit a true Master of Magnetism and a Master of Gravitation. Which powers would you use? Energy or Force Control?

I'd probably use multiple powers to reflect the multiple effects, but to start out, I'd go with Matter Control (metal) and Telekinesis.

Matter Control (Metal)! Of course. I haven’t thought about that. :oops: But I’m interested in more than the start. ;)
I was hoping for complete power packages with modifiers and everything. :mrgreen:

A bit too close to providing a "conversion" for me to get too directly involved, but I can point here for a version of one...

Hmm, I see your point. What if we not only mention Magneto but Polaris (Marvel), Cosmic Boy (DC), Dr. Polaris (also DC) and The German (Heroes Season 3). And there are other examples from Superhero RPG like Champions.
I mean the concept may started with Magneto but in his early years even Iron Man used magnetic powers (he used an actual electromagnet ;) ). So Magneto’s like the Posterboy of Magnetism (actually the reason I named him in the first place) but he’s not the only one with this set of powers. That would be like not discussing the Flight power because of Superman... okay, maybe not that strong.
But I think you understand my meaning. Hope I'm not out of line here...


And thanks for the link. I read this one before but almost forgot about it.
