Who wants to play the Icons random character game?

Post by Renny on 7th March 2011, 09:43

How's about we roll up some random characters for the superhero game, Icons?

If you want to play along, here's what you do.

Phase 1: Origin!

Roll 2d6 and post the total here.

I'll do mine first so I can show you as we go along.

Steve: I rolled 4+5 = 9. That gives me a Gimmick, which means all of my powers come from a device of some kind. I also get a +2 to one of my mental abilities later.

Kevin: You are Trained. Your hero is a highly skilled human; with “powers” that come from superior training or specialized equipment. You gain three bonus specialties, but two fewer powers.

Chris: You have a Birthright: Your hero was born with or destined to develop superhuman powers. Your character gains your choice of one additional power, which should be innate, and not a device, or +2 to a rolled power level.

Mike:

Phase 1: Your origin type is Gimmick! Your powers all come from devices of some kind. One of the character’s mental abilities (your choice) is increased by +2.

Phase 2: Abilities. Your adjusted ability scores are as follows;

Prowess: 4
Coordination: 6
Strength: 5
Intellect: 4
Awareness: 5
Willpower: 5

Let me know if you want to swap two stats around and don't forget, you can add +2 to one mental ability. Let me know which one (Intellect, Awareness or Willpower).

Ok, here's the number of powers you have;

Kevin: You have 3
Mike: You have 4
Chris: You have 5

Mixed bag there.

Next, for each power you have, roll 2d6 twice to determine the type of power and the specific power. The first 2d6 determines the type eg Offensive, Defensive, then the second 2d6 result determines the specific power. Please list the results in order of roll.
