0 Custom Lifting STR Table: From (http://www.herogames.com/forums/topic/87775-strength-in-the-mhi-universe-do-the-rpg-stats-seem-a-little-low/?p=232653)

[Notes: I recommend using the linked custom lifting STR chart for the John Wick universe. Everything is adjusted one step down from the normal STR table: 10 STR => 75 kg, 13 STR => 100kg, 15 STR => 150 kg, 18 STR => 200 kg, 20 STR => 300 kg. When applied to John's 17 STR this makes his maximum lift before pushing = 183.3 kg instead of the default 263.9 kg.] - END=0

0 Custom END Rules: From (http://www.herogames.com/forums/topic/94240-heroic-end-weapon-str-minimums-multiple-attack-autofire-and-guns/)

[Notes: From 6e1 page 41 - Using STR costs END — 1 END per 10 points of STR used in most cases (as an optional rule, some Heroic campaigns charge 1 END per 5 STR used, due to the prevalence of armed combat in those genres). However, a character only has to pay the END cost for his STR once per Phase, regardless of how many different ways he uses it in a single Phase. However, this rule does not apply to situations or game elements that allow a character to make two or more STR-based attacks in a Phase (such as an Autofire HA, or the Multiple Attack Combat Maneuver). In that case, the character has to pay END for his STR once for each attack. Since 6e2 page refers to guns as non-musclepowered ranged weapons I would recommend that GM's rule that STR cost 1 END per 5 points of STR used but meeting the STR Minimum for using a gun NOT be considered a STR-based attack and therefore only costs END once per Phase regardless of the number of shots fired by characters in the John Wick universe.] - END=0

 

3 Economy of Motion in Combat: Reduced Endurance (1/2 END; Naked Advantage; +1/4) for up to 17 Active Points of STR (4 Active Points); Limited Power - Only for Combat (-1/4)

[Notes: STR normally costs 1 END per 5 STR used in Heroic games. Usable with various Martial arts as well as C.A.R. System (Center Axis Relock), Weaver Stance and Isosceles Stance.] - END=0

3 Lightning Reflexes: +3 DEX (6 Active Points); Limited Power - Only to act first with All Actions (-1)

[Notes: Added as a Characteristic purchased as Power instead of the Talent so that the bonus DEX & Initiative shows up in the Characteristic Block.]

[Notes: Autofire imposes an additional +5 STR Minimum to any weapon used. This can be offset by using the Brace Maneuver. END cost is per each Autofire burst if combined with Multiple Attack, NOT per shot fired.] - END=1

0 Custom Hit Location Chart (Optional) (Custom Adder)

[Notes: From (http://www.herogames.com/forums/topic/14671-house-rules-for-hit-location/) and (http://www.realschluss.org/disavowed/house_rules/). The custom chart is at the bottom of the page on the second link. I recommend using these custom Hit Location Rules for the John Wick Universe.]

 

Special Combat Maneuvers & Skills

[Notes: (List)]

0 1) Combined Attack (Free Maneuver) (Custom Adder)

[Notes: Using two or more powers or similar abilities (but not Combat/Martial Maneuvers or the like) once against a single target isn’t a Multiple Attack. It’s a Combined Attack, and counts as type of Strike. Therefore it has no OCV penalty, doesn’t halve the attacker’s DCV, and doesn’t take a Full Phase to perform. (Using two such powers multiple times against a single target, or against multiple targets, is a Multiple Attack and subject to all Multiple Attack rules.)]

10 2) Defense Maneuver I-IV

[Notes: Eliminates Multiple Attacker Bonuses to all attackers, even those which the character cannot perceive. (This does not allow him to perceive said attackers — it simply means that the way he moves in combat, no one can get a clear shot at his back, regardless of whether he knows they’re there. For example, he’d still suffer the reduced DCV that comes from being attacked by a foe he couldn’t perceive with a Targeting Sense, but that foe wouldn’t get a Multiple Attackers Bonus or bonus for attacking him “from behind.”). Acts as a “sense,” i.e., the character need not spend a Half Phase to use his Defense Maneuver (using it takes no time); any Combat Skill Levels that improve the character’s DCV are considered Persistent for this purpose.]

0 3) Multiple Attack (Free Maneuver) (Custom Adder)

[Notes: Multiple Attack requires a Full Phase to use (the Rapid Attack Skill, 6E1 87, reduces this to a Half Phase). Using it reduces the character to ½ DCV. The character’s OCV is affected by the number of targets, the types of attacks used, and other factors (see below). A character using Multiple Attack has to make a separate Attack Roll for each attack in the sequence. If he misses any of his Attack Rolls, all remaining attacks in that Multiple Attack sequence automatically miss also. A character making a Multiple Attack must expend END or Charges for each attack made (this includes any that automatically miss because he missed one in the sequence). He may elect to stop the Multiple Attack after any successful attack. This does not retroactively diminish the OCV and DCV penalties for using the Maneuver, but it saves END or Charges. A character making a Multiple Attack against multiple targets can choose to attack some or all of them more than once, but this of course increases the number of attacks (and thus the OCV penalty suffered; see below). For example, Thunderbird could make a Multiple Attack with his pistol by shooting Lazer once, Mechassassin twice, and Steel Commando once. That’s a total of four attacks, so he suffers a -6 OCV penalty on all the Attack Rolls.]

10 4) Rapid Attack

[Notes: A character with this Combat Skill has a heightened ability to move in combat. He can make a Multiple Attack (6E2 73) as a Half Phase Action, instead of a Full Phase Action. (This includes Multiple Attacks made with the Two-Weapon Fighting Skill.) No roll is required, and all other Multiple Attack penalties and rules apply.]

0 5) Snap Shot (Optional Free Maneuver) (Custom Adder)

[Notes: This Free Optional Maneuver allows a character to move after making an attack (which is normally not allowed) — the character ducks out from Behind Cover (see 6E2 88), makes an attack, and then ducks back behind cover. It’s normally only used with Ranged attacks, but may, with the GM’s permission and in the right circumstances, be used in HTH Combat as well. Snap Shot requires a Full Phase, and characters can use it with other Combat Maneuvers (for example, a character could use Multiple Attack while Snap Shooting). To make a Snap Shot, the character must start fully Behind Cover near a corner, edge, or opening in whatever he’s hiding behind. The opening or edge must be within 1m of the character. He steps out (on his Phase and DEX) and attacks, using the modifier for Snap Shot (-1 OCV) in addition to whatever other modifiers he might have (for the weapon or maneuver he uses, for example). He gets his full DCV (modified, if necessary, by any other maneuvers he is using), and an attacker’s OCV will also be affected by the fact that he’s partially Behind Cover. The character may only fire at targets he’s aware of, although he may make a PER Roll to spot previously unknown targets. After this combat action, he’s exposed to enemy attack for the rest of the Segment in which he attacked. On the Segment after the Snap Shot he may duck back Behind Cover (at the same DEX at which he made his Snap Shot).]

0 6) Strafe (Optional Free Maneuver) (Custom Adder)

[Notes: This Free Optional Maneuver (6e2 p88) allows a character to make a Ranged attack while performing a Full Move. It simulates the running-and-gunning of action movies, mid-air superheroic combat between energy projectors, and many similar fast-paced fighting scenes. To use Strafe, the character must first plot his entire movement path. It doesn’t matter whether he moves toward the target, away from him, perpendicular to him, or any other direction. Then he moves and makes his Attack Roll with his Ranged attack. Hit or miss, the character finishes moving at the end of his movement path. The character must be able to move at least 2m to Strafe. While Strafing, a character is at -2 DCV and an OCV penalty equal to his velocity divided by 6m (for example, a character Running at 12m velocity is at -2 OCV, one Flying at 30m velocity is at -5). The Range Modifier also applies, and should be calculated from where the character begins moving (unless the GM rules otherwise). If a Strafe succeeds, the target takes the damage from the Ranged attack. The Maneuver does not increase or decrease the attack’s damage or effect, nor does the character performing the Strafe take any damage from doing so. Strafe is its own Combat Maneuver. Unless the GM rules otherwise, it can’t be combined with other Maneuvers. For example, a character can’t Strafe and Multiple Attack, or Strafe and Haymaker. If a character cannot perceive his target with a Targeting Sense when he begins his Strafe, he has to make a PER Roll as soon as he might be able to perceive him. This typically requires a Half Phase, so the character can only make a Half Move as part of his Strafe. Unless the GM rules otherwise, characters cannot buy Combat Skill Levels specifically with Strafe. They have to buy CSLs with the attacks they Strafe with, then apply them when Strafing with those attacks. The GM should monitor the use of Strafe carefully, and forbid it if necessary to maintain game balance. It’s intended to allow for exciting, dynamic combat scenes, not to allow a character to repeatedly attack his enemies while remaining out of range of their attacks.]

 

Autofire Skills

[Notes: (List) Using any combination of these maneuvers takes a Half Phase (Rapid Attack) and halves a character’s DCV.]

5 1) Accurate Sprayfire

[Notes: The character can use Autofire against multiple targets with great accuracy. He suffers only a flat -1 OCV penalty (instead of the usual -1 OCV per 2m area fired into penalty). Accurate Sprayfire bonuses also apply when characters use Suppression Fire against an Area.]

5 2) Rapid Autofire

[Notes: A character with this Skill may use Autofire attacks with the Combat Maneuver Multiple Attack (see 6E2 73). He must fire the same number of shots in each burst of Multiple Attack Autofire (i.e., if he fires 3 shots at his first target, he must fire 3 shots at all targets, even if his Autofire could fire up to 5 shots). He suffers Multiple Attack’s cumulative -2 OCV penalty for each burst of Autofire fired after the first, in addition to any standard Autofire penalties.]

 

6 +2 with Handguns

10 +2 with Small Arms

20 +2 with All Attacks

24 +2 Overall Skill Levels

12 +4 to offset Hit Location modifiers with all attacks

[Notes: This could be replaced with the Deadly Blow or Weapon Master Talents if Hit Locations are not being used.]

10 +4 to offset Hit Location modifiers with all attacks (12 Active Points); Required Hands One-And-A-Half-Handed (-1/4)

[Notes: From 6e2 p200 - Characters normally use One-And-A-Half-Handed Weapons (“1½H”) with two hands; their listed STR Minima assumes two-handed use. However, if necessary characters can use them one-handed without too much difficulty. If a character uses the weapon with only one hand, increase its STR Minimum by +2 (or impose a -1 OCV penalty for weapons for which the STR Minimum Cannot Add Damage). 1 Handed use with guns means only +3 vs. Hit Locations. 1 Handed use with Martial Arts means 15 base STR or +3 vs. Hit Locations.]

4 +2 to offset Recoil modifiers vs. a single target when using autofire or multiple attacks with a gun

[Notes: HSEG6e p103 & DC5e p194 - The Recoil Rules impose an additional cumulative -1 OCV penalty for each shot after the first fired with Autofire or a Multiple Attack when made against a single target.]

6 +3 to offset the DCV penalty for being prone

[Notes: Defensive Penalty Skill Levels. 6e1 page 85.]

2 Off-Hand Defense

[Notes: A character with Off-Hand Defense is skilled at using a weapon in his Off Hand to block and parry attacks. When he has a weapon in his Off Hand he receives +1 DCV in HTH Combat. It's most appropriate for Martial Arts campaigns, but may be suitable for characters in some other genres and settings. When Blocking, a character with Off-Hand Defense may add his DCV bonus to his OCV to determine if the Block succeeds.]

5 Resistance (+5 to roll)

[Notes: (6e1 p114) At the GM’s option, Resistance also helps a character withstand the pain of injuries. If the campaign uses the optional Wounding rules (6e2 p108), every point of Resistance a character has adds +1 to his EGO Rolls for purposes of withstanding wounds.]

Value Complications

15 "John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will..." Psychological Complication: Always Calm And Collected (Common; Strong)

[Notes: This character always has himself together, never panics, and never gets overly emotional, even when its appropriate to do so. While this can, in some instances, be a good thing (keeping his head in stressful situations, for instance), most of the time other characters find him to be distant, unfeeling, and cold. Of course, the character isn't really Emotionless, but rather is so used to keeping himself composed that expressing any strong emotion (hate, grief, love, lust, fear, etc.) is difficult for the character, and when he does do so, he tends to sound like he's reading memorized lines from a script rather than saying how he feels. At the Strong level the character must make an Ego Roll in order to avoid acting in this manner. At Total, the character can only force himself to act otherwise in times of great exigency.]

20 "How good is your laundry?" Psychological Complication: Demands Only The Best (Very Common; Strong)

[Notes: This character is very particular in his tastes. He eats only in the best restaurants, buys only the best clothing, and the gear he uses is of the finest quality. The character tends to spend more than is common on most items, though this is not a universal rule since "most expensive" doesn't always translate into "best" (for example, the best cheeseburger on the planet can be acquired at a palm-frond roofed stand on Captiva island in the Bahamas for $1.20 American... much less than any similar item found in a fast food restaurant in the states).]

15 "People keep asking if I'm back..." Psychological Complication: Must Avenge Murder of any Friend, Family Member or Protected Party (Uncommon; Total)

[Notes: This character will stop at nothing to bring justice to any person that kills a loved one. His thoughts and dreams will be filled with images of this vengeance. Once the murderer is caught, this character will probably inflict bodily harm upon him. This can vary from just a severe beating, to possibly the death of the murderer. There may well be social and/or legal consequences to this act of vengeance.]

When applied to John's 17 STR this makes his maximum lift before pushing = 183.3 kg instead of the default 263.9 kg.] - END=0

0 Custom END Rules: From (http://www.herogames.com/forums/topic/94240-heroic-end-weapon-str-minimums-multiple-attack-autofire-and-guns/)

[Notes: From 6e1 page 41 - Using STR costs END — 1 END per 10 points of STR used in most cases (as an optional rule, some Heroic campaigns charge 1 END per 5 STR used, due to the prevalence of armed combat in those genres). However, a character only has to pay the END cost for his STR once per Phase, regardless of how many different ways he uses it in a single Phase. However, this rule does not apply to situations or game elements that allow a character to make two or more STR-based attacks in a Phase (such as an Autofire HA, or the Multiple Attack Combat Maneuver). In that case, the character has to pay END for his STR once for each attack. Since 6e2 page refers to guns as non-musclepowered ranged weapons I would recommend that GM's rule that STR cost 1 END per 5 points of STR used but meeting the STR Minimum for using a guns NOT be considered a STR-based attack and therefore only costs END once per Phase regardless of the number of shots fired by characters in the John Wick universe.] - END=0

The custom chart is at the bottom of the page on the second link. I recommend using these custom Hit Location Rules for the John Wick Universe.]

 

Special Combat Maneuvers & Skills

0 1) Combined Attack (Free Maneuver) (Custom Adder)

[Notes: Using two or more powers or similar abilities (but not Combat/Martial Maneuvers or the like) once against a single target isn’t a Multiple Attack. It’s a Combined Attack, and counts as type of Strike. Therefore it has no OCV penalty, doesn’t halve the attacker’s DCV, and doesn’t take a Full Phase to perform. (Using two such powers multiple times against a single target, or against multiple targets, is a Multiple Attack and subject to all Multiple Attack rules.)]

10 7) Defensive Attack (Custom Skill)

[Notes: From APG1 page 38 - Defensive Attack

A character with this optional new Combat Skill has a heightened ability to avoid attacks in combat. He only suffers a -2 DCV when making a Multiple Attack (6E2 73), rather than his DCV being halved. (This includes Multiple Attacks made with the Two-Weapon Fighting Skill.) No roll is required, and all other Multiple Attack penalties and rules apply. Defensive Attack costs 10 Character Points and applies to all forms of Multiple Attack. If a character only wants to be able to use it with Multiple Attacks only featuring HTH attacks, or only featuring Ranged attacks, he can apply a -1 Limitation, HTH Multiple Attacks Only or Ranged Multiple Attacks Only.]

10 2) Defense Maneuver I-IV

[Notes: Eliminates Multiple Attacker Bonuses to all attackers, even those which the character cannot perceive. (This does not allow him to perceive said attackers — it simply means that the way he moves in combat, no one can get a clear shot at his back, regardless of whether he knows they’re there. For example, he’d still suffer the reduced DCV that comes from being attacked by a foe he couldn’t perceive with a Targeting Sense, but that foe wouldn’t get a Multiple Attackers Bonus or bonus for attacking him “from behind.”). Acts as a “sense,” i.e., the character need not spend a Half Phase to use his Defense Maneuver (using it takes no time); any Combat Skill Levels that improve the character’s DCV are considered Persistent for this purpose.]

0 3) Multiple Attack (Free Maneuver) (Custom Adder)

[Notes: Multiple Attack requires a Full Phase to use (the Rapid Attack Skill, 6E1 87, reduces this to a Half Phase). Using it reduces the character to ½ DCV. The character’s OCV is affected by the number of targets, the types of attacks used, and other factors (see below). A character using Multiple Attack has to make a separate Attack Roll for each attack in the sequence. If he misses any of his Attack Rolls, all remaining attacks in that Multiple Attack sequence automatically miss also. A character making a Multiple Attack must expend END or Charges for each attack made (this includes any that automatically miss because he missed one in the sequence). He may elect to stop the Multiple Attack after any successful attack. This does not retroactively diminish the OCV and DCV penalties for using the Maneuver, but it saves END or Charges. A character making a Multiple Attack against multiple targets can choose to attack some or all of them more than once, but this of course increases the number of attacks (and thus the OCV penalty suffered; see below). For example, Thunderbird could make a Multiple Attack with his pistol by shooting Lazer once, Mechassassin twice, and Steel Commando once. That’s a total of four attacks, so he suffers a -6 OCV penalty on all the Attack Rolls.]

10 4) Rapid Attack

[Notes: A character with this Combat Skill has a heightened ability to move in combat. He can make a Multiple Attack (6E2 73) as a Half Phase Action, instead of a Full Phase Action. (This includes Multiple Attacks made with the Two-Weapon Fighting Skill.) No roll is required, and all other Multiple Attack penalties and rules apply.]

0 5) Snap Shot (Optional Free Maneuver) (Custom Adder)

[Notes: This Free Optional Maneuver allows a character to move after making an attack (which is normally not allowed) — the character ducks out from Behind Cover (see 6E2 88), makes an attack, and then ducks back behind cover. It’s normally only used with Ranged attacks, but may, with the GM’s permission and in the right circumstances, be used in HTH Combat as well. Snap Shot requires a Full Phase, and characters can use it with other Combat Maneuvers (for example, a character could use Multiple Attack while Snap Shooting).

To make a Snap Shot, the character must start fully Behind Cover near a corner, edge, or opening in whatever he’s hiding behind. The opening or edge must be within 1m of the character. He steps out (on his Phase and DEX) and attacks, using the modifier for Snap Shot (-1 OCV) in addition to whatever other modifiers he might have (for the weapon or maneuver he uses, for example). He gets his full DCV (modified, if necessary, by any other maneuvers he is using), and an attacker’s OCV will also be affected by the fact that he’s partially Behind Cover.

The character may only fire at targets he’s aware of, although he may make a PER Roll to spot previously unknown targets. After this combat action, he’s exposed to enemy attack for the rest of the Segment in which he attacked. On the Segment after the Snap Shot he may duck back Behind Cover (at the same DEX at which he made his Snap Shot).]

0 6) Strafe (Optional Free Maneuver) (Custom Adder)

[Notes: This Free Optional Maneuver (6e2 p88) allows a character to make a Ranged attack while performing a Full Move. It simulates the running-and-gunning of action movies, mid-air superheroic combat between energy projectors, and many similar fast-paced fighting scenes.

To use Strafe, the character must first plot his entire movement path. It doesn’t matter whether he moves toward the target, away from him, perpendicular to him, or any other direction. Then he moves and makes his Attack Roll with his Ranged attack. Hit or miss, the character finishes moving at the end of his movement path. The character must be able to move at least 2m to Strafe.

While Strafing, a character is at -2 DCV and an OCV penalty equal to his velocity divided by 6m (for example, a character Running at 12m velocity is at -2 OCV, one Flying at 30m velocity is at -5). The Range Modifier also applies, and should be calculated from where the character begins moving (unless the GM rules otherwise).

If a Strafe succeeds, the target takes the damage from the Ranged attack. The Maneuver does not increase or decrease the attack’s damage or effect, nor does the character performing the Strafe take any damage from doing so.

A character may not perform Strafe with Extra- Dimensional Movement, FTL Travel, Teleportation, or any MegaScaled movement. However, he can use Strafe at Noncombat Movement speeds with other forms of movement (though this means he has OCV 0 before the Maneuver’s penalty applies; see 6E2 36).

Strafe is its own Combat Maneuver. Unless the GM rules otherwise, it can’t be combined with other Maneuvers. For example, a character can’t Strafe and Multiple Attack, or Strafe and Haymaker. If a character cannot perceive his target with a Targeting Sense when he begins his Strafe, he has to make a PER Roll as soon as he might be able to perceive him. This typically requires a Half Phase, so the character can only make a Half Move as part of his Strafe.

Unless the GM rules otherwise, characters cannot buy Combat Skill Levels specifically with Strafe. They have to buy CSLs with the attacks they Strafe with, then apply them when Strafing with those attacks.

The GM should monitor the use of Strafe carefully, and forbid it if necessary to maintain game balance. It’s intended to allow for exciting, dynamic combat scenes, not to allow a character to repeatedly attack his enemies while remaining out of range of their attacks.]

 

Autofire Skills

[Notes: Using any combination of these maneuvers takes a Half Phase (Rapid Attack) and halves a character’s DCV.]

5 1) Accurate Sprayfire

[Notes: The character can use Autofire against multiple targets with great accuracy. He suffers only a flat -1 OCV penalty (instead of the usual -1 OCV per 2m area fired into penalty). Accurate Sprayfire bonuses also apply when characters use Suppression Fire against an Area.]

5 2) Rapid Autofire

[Notes: A character with this Skill may use Autofire attacks with the Combat Maneuver Multiple Attack (see 6E2 73). He must fire the same number of shots in each burst of Multiple Attack Autofire (i.e., if he fires 3 shots at his first target, he must fire 3 shots at all targets, even if his Autofire could fire up to 5 shots). He suffers Multiple Attack’s cumulative -2 OCV penalty for each burst of Autofire fired after the first, in addition to any standard Autofire penalties.]

10 +4 to offset Hit Location modifiers with all attacks (12 Active Points); Required Hands One-And-A-Half-Handed (-1/4)

[Notes: From 6e2 p200 - Characters normally use One-And-A-Half-Handed Weapons (“1½H”) with two hands; their listed STR Minima assumes two-handed use. However, if necessary characters can use them one-handed without too much difficulty. If a character uses the weapon with only one hand, increase its STR Minimum by +2 (or impose a -1 OCV penalty for weapons for which the STR Minimum Cannot Add Damage). 1 Handed use with guns means only +3 vs. Hit Locations. 1 Handed use with Martial Arts means 15 base STR or +3 vs. Hit Locations.]

4 +2 to offset Recoil modifiers vs. a single target when using autofire or multiple attacks with a gun

[Notes: HSEG6e p103 & DC5e p194 - The Recoil Rules impose an additional cumulative -1 OCV penalty for each shot after the first fired with Autofire or a Multiple Attack when made against a single target.]

Perks Total: 80

 

Cost Talents

3 Ambidexterity (no Off Hand penalty)

2 Off-Hand Defense

[Notes: A character with Off-Hand Defense is skilled at using a weapon in his Off Hand to block and parry attacks. When he has a weapon in his Off Hand he receives +1 DCV in HTH Combat. It's most appropriate for Martial Arts campaigns, but may be suitable for characters in some other genres and settings. When Blocking, a character with Off-Hand Defense may add his DCV bonus to his OCV to determine if the Block succeeds.]

5 Resistance (+5 to roll)

[Notes: (6e1 p114) At the GM’s option, Resistance also helps a character withstand the pain of injuries. If the campaign uses the optional Wounding rules (6e2 p108), every point of Resistance a character has adds +1 to his EGO Rolls for purposes of withstanding wounds.]

3 +1/+1d6 Striking Appearance (vs. all characters)

2 +1/+1d6 Striking Appearance (vs. characters attracted to men)

 

Talents Total: 15

 

Value Complications

15 "John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will...": Always Calm And Collected (Common; Strong)

[Notes: This character always has himself together, never panics, and never gets overly emotional, even when its appropriate to do so. While this can, in some instances, be a good thing (keeping his head in stressful situations, for instance), most of the time other characters find him to be distant, unfeeling, and cold. Of course, the character isn't really Emotionless, but rather is so used to keeping himself composed that expressing any strong emotion (hate, grief, love, lust, fear, etc.) is difficult for the character, and when he does do so, he tends to sound like he's reading memorized lines from a script rather than saying how he feels. At the Strong level the character must make an Ego Roll in order to avoid acting in this manner. At Total, the character can only force himself to act otherwise in times of great exigency.]

20 "How good is your laundry?": Demands Only The Best (Very Common; Strong)

[Notes: This character is very particular in his tastes. He eats only in the best restaurants, buys only the best clothing, and the gear he uses is of the finest quality. The character tends to spend more than is common on most items, though this is not a universal rule since "most expensive" doesn't always translate into "best" (for example, the best cheeseburger on the planet can be acquired at a palm-frond roofed stand on Captiva island in the Bahamas for $1.20 American... must less than any similar item found in a fast food restaurant in the states).]

15 "People keep asking if I'm back...": Must Avenge Murder of any Friend, Family Member or Protected Party (Uncommon; Total)

[Notes: This character will stop at nothing to bring justice to any person that kills a loved one. His thoughts and dreams will be filled with images of this vengeance. Once the murderer is caught, this character will probably inflict bodily harm upon him. This can vary from just a severe beating, to possibly the death of the murderer. There may well be social and/or legal consequences to this act of vengeance.]

 

Complications Points: 50

He never really demonstrated much in the way of stealth skills.  I know he has a reputation of being a ghost but he basically walks through the front door and shoots people in almost every hit in the movie.

 

I think there was stealth involved in a number of scenes.

  1. When he took out the 12 'dinner guests'.
  2. When he took out the first few personal guards and sentries at the club without using a gun.
  3. When he took out the first sentry protecting Victor's son at the safe house.

Of course, once his presence was obviously known he didn't waste time.

Yeah I can see him having some skill, its true.

 

Its just his reputation was far outsized compared to his performance.  He was really capable, just not the terrifying ghost we were told he was.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the movie a lot more than I expected to.  The world was fascinating.

I have considered creating a Gun Fu martial art for him but can't really justify it based on anything from the movie.  However, I might Instead add an additional 2-4 CSL's with Pistols just to help balance out all the points spent on Jujutsu (partly based on the movie Wiki).

Maybe a few levels to ignore hit location penalties, he did an awful lot of head shots.

 

He already has that.

 

Here's a compilation of all his current gun related skills:

 

5 Accurate Sprayfire

5 Concentrated Sprayfire

5 Rapid Autofire

5 Skipover Sprayfire

20 +2 with All Attacks

10 +2 with a large group of attacks (Small Arms)

 

12 +4 to offset Hit Location modifiers with all attacks

[Notes: This can be replaced with the Weapon Master Talent if Hit Locations are not being used.]

4 +2 to offset Range modifiers Pistols

 

10 Rapid Attack

24 +2 Overall Skill Levels

3 WF: Small Arms, Blades, Clubs, Unarmed Combat

 

The Bolded are all Gun-Only.

 

There are a couple of options* to increase his Pistol-Only effectiveness:

5    Expert with a Pistol: Autofire (3 shots; +1/4) for up to 36 Active Points of RKA (9 Active Points); OIF (9mm Pistol of Opportunity; -1/2), Concentration (1/2 DCV; -1/4) - END=1

6    +2 with a small group of attacks (Pistols)

 

*Options added.

I keep looking at his 6 SPD and thinking it's not really necessary. 

 

A 4 SPD would be fine considering his Rapid Attack, Rapid Autofire and Expert with a Pistol.  I'm pretty sure those all would allow him to empty a 19 round clip in 2-3 Phases.

 

*Character updated. Also got rid of some Martial Maneuvers not seen in the movie.

If you mean using one of his pistols as HTH weapon, I think Club Weapon has that covered :D.

 

If you mean some version of Gun Fu, I considered it but decided against since the movie seemed to go for the realistic vibe.  Plus, any Ranged Martial Art maneuvers that do bonus damage are essentially doing so as a form of precise shooting which is just Hit Locations by another name. I by far prefer to just use the default Hit Location rules instead.

One thing I've been wondering about is how often he shifted from 1 handed to 2 handed shooting with his pistols.  I don't think the range to targets were enough to cause a penalty so it wouldn't be a HERO Set Maneuver.  Does Dark Champions have a rule about using a 2nd hand to improve accuracy with a single pistol?

Mainly I was thinking that he was using jiujitsu while holding (or firing, or reloading) a pistol.  IIRC this requires investing the one point to add that weapon group to the MA.  I see your point about bonus damage for ranged maneuvers but almost none of the maneuvers you've given Wick really come with bonus damage.

Doh! I figured Two Weapon Fighting and Ambidexterity would have covered that.  I'll look for the rule and adjust the character tonight then. :D

I don't even know if that rule still stands in 6e to be honest.  I still kind of default to 4th.

 

One of the funny things about the movie was that Charlie (the cleaner) turned out to be played by David Patrick Kelly.  Didn't even recognize him.

Also remember that he's been "retired" for a while.

 

It would explain why he's not as "scary" as the hype portrayed him.

 

As for the write-up. 

 

Nicely done Hyper.

How so? He singlehandedly killed 13 people who were coming to ambush HIM. He killed 77 people singlehandedly- all either trained assassins themselves or people used to violence and otherwise "in the life." This would make him one of the most prolific killers in United States history, if you exclude soldiers in combat zones. And those killers who exceed this record- serial killers mostly- did so over a far longer period of time and to a much more vulnerable population.

Updated with more weapon and rules details.

 

Does anyone know if the Recoil Rules from Dark Champions are in addition to the normal auto-fire penalties when attacking a single target?

 

I think it would be awesome to break down and describe the play-by-play for one of the scenes from the movie.  I think the first part of the church scene is a good candidate.

 

Any takers?

Almost never by stealth though.  When he was going somewhere to do a hit, he just walked in the front door.  He didn't show up out of nowhere, he just walked in bold as day.  Not ghosty at all.

 

 

The church scene he used a lot of autofire and missed a lot too, sort of emphasizes the drawbacks of recoil.

The beginning of the church scene was stealthy in the way he concealed the assault rifle.  I don't think he missed any shots inside the church.  The later 'misses' outside can be attributed to covering fire to keep the guards heads down.  Web analysis of his shooting stances showed that he used at least 3 different ones all designed to control recoil. 

 

I posit that his only true misses were the ones when the son escapes up the stairs from the basement pool and is behind bulletproof glass. The only time he didn't hit exactly what he was aiming for. He even nails 1 of the home invaders with blind/look-away shots by going prone and turning away to take advantage of his dark suit in the low lighting (effectively dodging the invader's shots).

... does he really need most of the autofire skills?  He uses burst-fire, yes, but from what I recall of the film (last I saw was, I dunno, 3-4 months ago?) most of his shots were aimed, even the bursts - focussing so much on the multiple targets in front of him (delayed actions / covering) that he gets blindsided by a frickin' SUV.  I'd have to watch it again (and I'm considering it, dammit), but I think most of his shots (trigger-pulls) are no less than a second apart, which could easily give you a 6 SPD and 'just' two PSLs to counter one additional multiple attack.  (And of course, he DOES try to use cover.)
