Goon for sale

Recommended Posts

 

Good afternoon and welcome to Goons, Lackeys, and Henchmen how can I help you? You seem more the street level villainy type, I have...whoa whoa step away from the costumed henchmen display. You gotta learn to crawl before you can walk. Now heres our starter package a group of four fifty point goons. What are points? Just something we use to generally classify folks. 50 pointers are your basics. They can handle the typical man on the street, and will commit pretty much any crime you plan. However the kind of foes you'll face will go through them like a hot knife through butter. Why hire them? Because you can't cover everything. They can carry off more swag, cover people while you rob the bank and while they can't stop them, they do make excellent cannon fodder when you run away.

 

Now the next step is eight 50 pointers pretty much more of the same, and if you run into a bunch of foes more cannon fodder. After that it's more your forte you seem more of the bank robber type so I'd go with the 100 pointer and eight 50 pointer package. What? Yes we have an eight 100 pointer package but that's getting silly in your case. That's more for the take over the city types, the ones who buy the fifty or hundred 50 pointer packages. In general you should get one from the next level for every 8 package. The costumed henchmen? That's more for the world beater types. Most people who come in her should stop at the hundred or fifty point packages. Once you get into the hundred fifty to two hundred fifty point packages most people tend to go from having goons to partners or rivals for the top spot. Course in that range were talking specialized weapons, skills, and even super powers. So what can I show you?

Welcome. Your here looking for henchmen of a more mystical bent. We here at Magical Henchbeing Surplus have just the thing.

 

Over here we have leftover youma golems from the Dark Kingdom. They are powerful, but there only requirement is human energy, which it gets while activated. They are about 100 to 200 points in value, so they are expensive. But worth every penny. And here are some alchemical Droids from the Black Moon Family. They don't require energy, and are again about 100 to 200 points in value.

 

Leftover anime magical girl fodder not your thing? How's about an army of demonic imps, about 25 points worth. Sure, the cost is your soul, but with one soul, you get about 500 imps, give or take a few, so it is a bargain.

 

Undead more your thing, but don't like flesh eating zombies turning on you for an easy meal? Try our Skeleton hord, at 100 points, and they don't eat, they should do you well. Just don't go anywhere near a certain litch lord.

Lord Liaden is  correct. You can also upgrade a pool babe if anyone recalls that thread. Or troll horror sites and film screenings. Any gal rooting for the killer will probably not ask where her new fur or diamond braclet came from.

40 Base Points

 

Total Disadvantage Points: 90

 

Background/History: Molly is an example of a high end "babe" from a Variable Babe Pool, specifically, one that might appear for the "Call Moll" power.

 

Personality/Motivation: After the "honeymoon" (the set of Tasks calculated, plus a week of "hanging around") unless the moll is re-Summoned or other steps taken (Bribery or Persuasion rolls perhaps) her loyalty may wane or she may move out of the campaign. While unlikely to "sell out" (and even less likely to sing to the cops) she may move on to some other tough guy who impressed her, either with more lavish parties or with an even darker and more dangerous reputation. Or she may get into trouble on her own initiative and end up in jail, taking it on the lam with no forwarding address, or even get killed. If the character gets really attached to a moll, there's always the option of buying her as a Follower.

 

Quote: Whatever you say, boss.

 

Powers/Tactics: While designed to hopefully survive a firefight, Molly is probably not a frontline enforcer. She can be a back up getaway driver, a distraction, or one more gun on your side in a fight. With 15 pts in Streetwise and Knowledge Skills, she may make a useful advisor.

 

Campaign Use: Aside from being a Summoned Babe, this character sheet could be used for a more permanent moll for crime bosses ranging from a prohibition era bootlegger to a 21st century drug lord, or even the girlfriend of certain kinds of villains in a superhero game.

 

Appearance: Molls are not necessarily chosen for looks (they have other things to contribute) but any given crime lord's moll is probably at least moderately attractive by whatever his personal standards are.

 

This is for a common bimbo

Background/History: She's from the shallow end of the Variable Babe Pool

 

Personality/Motivation: Girls just wanna have fun. Bimbos like this drift in and out all the time. Easy come, easy go.

 

Quote: Great party!

 

Powers/Tactics: Looks good in a bikini. Fun at parties. Even more fun in bed. Strong swimmer (lots of time in the pool. Builds up those leg muscles.)

 

Campaign Use: Besides being a Summoned Babe, can be anything from a streetwalker to a trophy wife. A few points left unspent to give each bimbo a little something to individualize her, if you want to bother.

 

Appearance: Invariably sexy, if you like that kind of girl
