Character Posting Game.

Recommended Posts

Re: Character Posting Game.

 

Okay, so what're the next challenge(s) ?

 

I think others are more entitled to post a challenge than I am, but since no one else is doing so...

 

How about a hero with multible personalities? And for bonus points, have the personalities both awake at the same time, but without telepathic comunication (they have to talk aloud to talk to each other).

Cost Summary:Base Points:200Disadvantage Points: 150Total Experience Available: 0Total Character Cost: 350Height: 1.67 mHair: BrownWeight: 64.00 kgEyes: BrownAppearance: Personality: Wai Fei Hung is still in many ways a typical son of Shanghai. He is fascinated with history and culture, both that of China and of the world. He has fully accepted his duty to the Celestial Court, and sees the protection of the innocent as part of that duty. He is often reluctant to accept new commitments, but once he has accepted them he will do all in his power to see them fulfilled, no matter the personal cost. Magic and the supernatural are endlessly interesting to Wai Fei Hung, as are people and places new to his experience, something that has occasionally led him to trust more than he should. Wai attempts to live his life in accordance with a modified form of Taoist Mysticism belief that accepts the reality of the supernatural.Quote:“No, I do not know Kung Fu.†“To fall down when struck with a small car, this too is the way of the Tao.â€Background: Sometimes duty can lead you to strange places. Wai Fei Hung was born in Shanghai, his father a professor, his mother a school teacher. His parents had great plans for their only son; he would be a doctor, a healer, a source of pride. Fei Hung had no such ambitions; his passion, such as it was, was for the Peking Opera, Chinese and world literature, and history. Still, ever the dutiful son, Fei Hung tried.

 

When he announced his intention to become a Doctor of Chinese Medicine instead of a medical doctor, his parents were furious. After much heated discussion, Fei Hung was ordered to study medicine in London. Obedient but hurt, Fei Hung agreed.

 

Fei Hung did not enter the pre-med program at Cambridge. Defying his father, he studied Chinese culture, and attracted the attention of Professor Wei Sun, better known in the UK press as the heroic Doctor Hong Kong. Doctor HK recognized Wei’s incredible potential, and offered to tutor him in the Chinese Arts Arcane. The price would be the same as that paid by the Doctor himself; an oath to serve the Celestial Emperor and the people of China. Frightened and disbelieving, Wai refused. This Doctor Hong Kong was clearly a superhuman lunatic! Gods of old China? The Celestial Emperor? It was obvious nonsense.

 

Then came Tiananmen Square. Wai’s father, showing a side Wai had never suspected, stood with his students demanding an end to the corrupt authoritarianism of Beijing, and a move towards modern Western democracy. Along with hundreds of others, he was arrested. Unlike most, he refused to sign a confession. Wai’s mother was devastated, and Wei knew only one man who could help. He went to Doctor HK.

 

“How can you ask me to do this, Wai Fei Hung? I have been charged with the protection of the Chinese People by the Celestial Emperor himself. If I act to free one rebel, am I not striking against our Earthly government? If I strike against our government, do I not strike against our nation, and our people?â€

 

“I do not ask you to strike against our nation, and our people. I beg you to save my father.â€

 

“Who are you, that I should raise my hand in your defense?â€

 

“I am your apprentice.â€

 

Wai Fei Hung accepted his duty, and saved his father.

 

Now, years later, Wai Fei Hung stands as a servant of the celestial court. Unlike his master, Wai has not yet been charged with a specific duty. These are his wandering years, time granted to him for exploration and growth. Sometimes, in dreams and visions, he is given a mission, and bound by duty he must obey. Wai Fei Hung, Doctor Shanghai, has stood in the Celestial Court itself, and been honored with a glimpse of the Celestial Emperor. He has walked the streets of Babylon’s Chinatown, and the paths of the Land of Legends. Sometimes duty takes you to strange places; sometimes it takes you where you need to be.

Powers/Tactics: Wai has access to a huge range of traditional Chinese spells and application of both internal and external energies, guided by the principles of Taoist Mysticism. His body has been toughened by the power of his magic, granting him supernatural speed, health and endurance.Campaign Use: Next Challenge: A Mystic bad guy who thinks he's saving the world

10     2D6 Unluck - Plans are doomed to have a minor but fatal flaw

Personality
Grandeur is slightly over the edge, but basically he is drivened by the fact that as magic dies in the
world, his magical friends become weaker and will eventually die.  Motivated by this fact, he will do
almost anything to force magic back into the world, even making deals with dark ones (as long as
human sacrifices aren't used).  As cruel and harsh as he is with the heroes, he will go out of his way
to protect and nuture magical creatures.  As his name suggests, no plan is too great for him to try.

Quote
"You have NO idea what you're doing!"

Background
Greg was out camping when he managed to get lost deep in the woods.  There he stumbled into a
mystical realm where all the creatures were sick and dying.  They told him that man's use of
technology had drained them of their magic and soon they would be just a faded memory.  Greg,
persaded by their fragile, dying beauty, learned all he could about magic so he could make
magical items that would help him in his struggle to save his friends. 

Powers / Tactics
Granduer will construct or find items and use them in his quest.  Granduer will not lower himself
to use weapons, but may use magical items that can cause havoc in an unprotected world.   He
is not above summoning an ugly monster (Doppleganger, a demon, or other ugly D&D monster),
or hiring villians (or maybe those are Dopplegangers too!) to attack the heroes while he attempts
to steal some rare artifact or gems to construct his items.

Height: 1.65 m Hair: Blonde

Weight: 58.00 kg Eyes: Blue

Appearance: Circe’s appearance varies markedly from form to form, though all of her forms are blonde, and all but Monster have facial features that are recognizably hers, though somewhat more idealized or distorted in some cases. Refer to the character sheets for her individual forms for specific descriptions of each form.

 

In her base (Big Circe) form, Circe Clayton is a 25-year old Caucasian woman with straight, shoulder-length blonde hair and pale blue eyes. She is quite pretty, despite wearing extremely plain clothing and no makeup, and generally giving no attention whatsoever to her appearance. She speaks softly, and while she tries to hide her fearfulness, anyone who spends any time around her at all will notice that she is both painfully shy and extremely jumpy.

Personality: Circe suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder (the psychiatric condition formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder). The result of repeated and severe trauma, DID is characterized by the fragmentation of one’s mental functioning into multiple, relatively autonomous personality states, limited or no conscious awareness of the condition itself, and extensive amnesia between the various personality states. The separate personality states tend to serve different purposes, often have marked differences in speech, emotions, maturity level and behavior pattern, and sometimes exhibit significant differences in skills, knowledge, languages spoken – and on occasion even some physical attributes, such as blood pressure, allergies, visual acuity or resistance tolerance for/resistance to medication. In Circe’s case, the differences extend far beyond the psychological – each of her personality states is manifest by a distinct physical transformation and a different set of superhuman abilities.

 

At her core, Circe is not a criminal, but some of her individual personality states demonstrate attitudes and behavioral traits ranging from the amoral to the downright malevolent. As such, it is a mistake to talk about Circe having any broad pattern of personality or motivation. Rather, her individual selves have distinct personality traits, interests and motivations, as characterized below.

 

Circe has nine known “selves†at this time, but it is always possible (i.e., GM option) there may be some others, perhaps with less distinct personalities or very limited roles and abilities. Her known forms are:

Circe (the Boring One) – Circe’s default or “core†form, called “Big Circe†by the others, is a profoundly confused, over-sensitive, shy and unhappy young woman who mostly wants to stay out of trouble and would prefer to be left alone. This form is the default one, and mostly serves to handle mundane, day-to-day tasks and situations. Though intelligent, she is not particularly driven by much other than a desire to understand and gain some control over her condition.

Little Circe (the Little Girl) – This form more or less represents an idealized version of Circe at age 5, before the most severe trauma that sparked her dissociative reactions. As a young child, she wants to play, have fun and please others. Though cautious, she is naïve and expressive, and she loves novelty, animals and things that are warm, fuzzy or shiny.

Angela (the Good One) – This form represents Circe’s spirituality, morality and conscience. Overtly Christian (though nondenominational) in orientation, the Angela persona is a rigid thinker, critical of sinful and wanton behavior and motivated by a desire to help others, display positive behaviors such as mercy and faith, and punish evil and blasphemy. Angela’s outlook is both hopeful and naïve, and she readily expects the best of others, to a degree that sometimes allows others to take advantage.

Lilith (the Evil One) – This form represents Circe’s dark or evil side and identifies with spiritual evil. Malicious, cruel and unconcerned with human life, the Lilith persona enjoys inflicting misfortune, pain and suffering and is prone to excessive violence. Overtly embracing the darkness, Circe seeks company with other evildoers and can easily be manipulated into performing all sorts of malevolent acts when in this form. Lilith could present a great threat should Circe somehow attract the attention of organizations such as DEMON.

Jezebel (the Slut) – This form represents Circe’s sexual side, and more general her sensual and hedonistic urges. Profoundly amoral and impulsive, Jezebel is something of the ultimate party girl/bad girl, and while she doesn’t want to cause herself or anyone else any real harm, she acts without forethought, is unconcerned with consequences and readily uses lies, theft, seduction and manipulation to get what she wants.

Diana (the Protector) - This warrior aspect is concerned with nothing other than protecting the innocent in general, and Circe in particular, from anyone or anything that would cause them harm. She would rather err on the side of assuming a threat than ignore one, and is extremely one-dimensional; Diana attempts to solve problems via force, first and always. She is extremely suspicious of others’ motives, particularly men, and does not trust easily.

Gloria (the Good Witch) - Gloria is something of a fairy godmother figure, representing Circe’s optimism and fantasies. The Gloria aspect attempts to make unfortunate individuals and the world in general happy and shiny through charity, humor and magic. She doesn’t want to cause any harm, but will readily bestow a curse as a warning, or turn an attacker into a glass statue, a stuffed animal or a toad rather than see someone else get hurt.

Marie (the Brain) – Marie represents intellect, knowledge and logic. Nearly devoid of emotion, behaving in a calculated, aloof and somewhat arrogant manner, Marie exerts a great deal of executive control over some of the less malevolent or self-centered “others,†largely at an unconscious level, encouraging them (particularly Circe) to take a form more appropriate to a given situation, or a more subtle one so as to avoid attention. She does not have as much amnesia as the others – she can access the memories of all the other forms, save Monster, though even she has only limited and sketchy memories of most of the early childhood trauma. Her primary goal is to keep the “system†safe and running smoothly; she is also motivated, to a lesser extent, by intellectual curiosity. She is the one the others turn to when knowledge or logic are called for, or if a tough decision must be made.

Monster - This aspect is the depository of all of Circe’s anger, hate, pain and desire for revenge, personified as savage fury without reason or mercy. Monster is a creature of darkness and pure, unthinking violence; this part of Circe will pause only to avoid harming/prevent harm to a child or animal. Monster may or may not be the repository of most of the memories of the abuse and degradation Circe has suffered throughout her life – nobody is certain, because even Marie cannot access Monster’s memories.

 

While the core Circe “self†has mostly just an intellectual awareness of her other aspects, gained through therapy and through viewing footage of her transformations, her other “selves†are more or less fully aware of each others’ existence, but not necessarily of their actions, experiences or memories. This often puts Circe and her various “selves†at a disadvantage, as they may find themselves in the midst of situations they don’t understand. This is reflected on each form’s character sheets as the Physical Limitation "Multiform Amnesia", and in each case specifies which of the others’ activities and memories each “self†can readily access.

Quote:“Umm, sorry… I’m sort of absent-minded sometimes. By the way, what day is it today?â€

Background: To say Circe Clayton did not have a very pleasant childhood is an understatement. Her parents were both alcoholics and drug addicts, and her father had a very bad temper. Doug Clayton mostly took out his temper on his wife Helen, but he was also physically abusive to young Circe from time to time. This was particularly true whenever she tried to stop him from hitting her mother... and then there were those couple times when she was too loud for her hung-over father to handle, and he decided to teach her that kids sometimes shouldn’t be seen *or* heard. Circe mostly remembers the better times though – those moments when both parents were relatively stable and would actually try to be good parents, taking her to the zoo or to her grandmother’s farm.

 

Circe was five years old when Doug Clayton was shot during a liquor-store robbery gone bad, and things quickly got much worse for her. Helen hooked up with Gary Kowalski, who fed Helen’s drug habit and made her pay for it on the streets while turning his unpleasant attentions to Circe. A sadistic psychopath, Gary Kowalski delighted in physical, sexual and emotional torture. Young Circe’s life became a living hell, in which she observed her mother’s degradation and abuse while also experiencing her own on a near-constant basis. She sometimes spent days locked in dark places – closets, car trunks, etc. – without food, water or access to a bathroom. One time when Kowalski got tired of her asking when they could go to the zoo to see the animals, he took her to an old, abandoned farmhouse and locked her in an old coal bin crawling with snakes, bugs, spiders and centipedes.

 

At some point during all this horror, Circe learned to mentally “go away†in order to survive. Sometimes she would shut down, so it was if the bad things were happening to someone else, and with time she got so good at this that she stopped being aware of the bad things, pushing her memories of those things into some dark corner of her mind. Other times she would imagine being someone who could stop bad things from happening, or bring good things into her life. As she got older, these fantasies started to take on more distinct forms; sometimes she would talk to them in her head and they’d talk back.

 

After Circe hit puberty, the abuse continued, the demands on her became greater and she built up more and more anger, but she also got even better at splitting her certain memories and aspects of her personality off into separate parts that could manage those things. In addition to caring for the home, she was forced to prostitute herself to support her mother’s and Gary’s drug habits. She learned how to do this, but kept those activities and all of sexual feelings outside her day-to-day awareness.

 

At fifteen, Circe ran away from home; she remembers this as her protective “friend,†Diana, taking her away from home. Seeking some sense of purpose and meaning in life, Circe attended religious services at various missions and shelters. This brought her some sense of peace and moral guidance, but (typical for her by this point) she separated those feelings off into a separate self-aspect, and also separated off those impulses and parts of herself she’d come to identify as evil.

 

With this increased fragmentation and reliance on burying things she couldn't or didn't want to cope with, Circe became steadily less aware of her different “parts.†By now, she remembered less and less of what happened during any given day, and she started having frequent “blackouts†in which she didn’t remember what had happened for hours, or sometimes days or weeks, at a time. It was during this time that her multiplicity first manifested in superhuman abilities, rather than just psychopathology.

 

Though she tried to avoid getting hurt any more, as often as not Circe kept getting manipulated and taken advantage of. This happened easily, given the extent of her confusion and amnesia and how she’d started to be completely unaware of what happened during some of her mental states. Desperate for money to survive, she (or rather, her “slutty†aspect) had again gotten involved in prostitution. One night a customer with rather extreme tastes got a bit rough and drew blood. The next thing she knew, Circe found herself naked, covered head to toe in someone else’s blood and locked in a strange motel room with a dismembered body and no memory of what had happened. This was only the first Circe awakened to find herself in horrid situations but no idea what had happened. By the time she finally found her way to Millennium City, where she eked out a living as a waitress, short-order cook (and sometimes stripper or prostitute), she was no longer shocked to awaken in a strange man’s bed, or with cuts on her body she did not remember having received, or blood on her hands but no apparent injury. She tried to ignore such events and pretend she wasn’t as crazy as she felt.

 

One fateful day, when Circe Clayton was 23, a department store security guard stopped a very young girl from leaving the story with a shoplifted doll. Suddenly he found himself facing a tall, muscular woman who proceeded to break his arm, then kicked him in the stomach hard enough to cause severe internal injuries. The police responding to this incident were even more surprised when a blast of pepper spray to this Amazon’s face caused her to transform into a red-skinned, cloven-hoofed devil-woman who used razor-sharp claws to nearly gut one officer, then set a squad car afire with a gout of fiery breath! The arrival of a PRIMUS team provoked yet another transformation, as binding the devil-woman with tangleweb guns prompted her to turn into a furred, superhumanly strong, completely berserk, fanged nightmare-beast that caused severe injury to three agents and Silver Avenger Mayte Sanchez before being brought down by Sanchez’ martial arts kills and concentrated neural-blaster fire from several other agents. They were even more surprised when the unconscious monster turned into a skinny, young woman dressed in tattered jeans and a stained t-shirt, who immediately awakened and honestly appeared to have no idea what hat happened.

 

A competent criminal defense lawyer and a thorough evaluation by psychiatric and superbeing experts from L’Institut Thoth resulted in Circe being found psychiatrically incompetent to stand trial, and she was court-committed to ongoing psychiatric treatment at Millennium City’s Waldameer Institute, a forensic psychiatric facility jointly administered by PRIMUS and L’Institit Thoth.

Powers/Tactics: The experts of L’Institut Thoth have characterized Circe Clayton as having possibly the most diverse array of superhuman abilities of any single being they have studied – and as one of the most potentially powerful. Her various “selves†demonstrate abilities ranging from low-level superhuman strength and durability to mid-level psionic abilities and unusual sensory capacities through full-scale physical/matter transmutation. There is speculation that should her treatment be successful, such that her various personality aspects are combined into one relatively stable personality, Circe might be able to readily draw upon any of her numerous superhuman abilities at will, and some are quite concerned by this possibility, particularly if the integrated personality turns out to be less functional or socialized than would be desirable.

 

The exact source of Circe’s powers is unclear, and a matter of heated debate among L’Institut’s experts. Though Circe apparently came by her abilities naturally, she does not display genetic abnormalities (or register on scanners) that would indicate mutant abilities. This has caused some to hypothesize that Circe’s abilities are primarily psionic, and that she is an example of the amazing capacities of the human mind. However, psychic sensitives and mystics who have examined her have noted that while her abilities in general do not register as magical, least two of Circe’s “personality aspects†(Angela and Lilith) display aura and quasi-magical qualities associated with the extradimensional spiritual realms broadly classified as “infernal†and “divine.†This has called into question whether she might be somehow drawing upon extradimensional energies – or possibly under the influence of transdimensional beings. Some of her abilities frankly defy any explanation other than some sort of connection to a transcendent reality. For example, blind studies of the Angela persona’s “light of truth†showed that she was able to discern that statements were untrue or deceiving when this fact had not previously been known to the examiners. The most dramatic example of this was when she was able to spot errors in a set of telephone listings pulled randomly from foreign phone directories and in mathematical equations that had been mistakenly transcribed by a research assistant, even though she could not understand the math had knew nothing about the people on the phone list or where the directory listings were drawn from.

 

All of Circe’s aspects share two powers. First, her fragmented personality manifests in a strong resistance to telepathic and mental attacks of all kinds – it is simply very difficult to break through all the mental activity to target or attack any aspect of her mind. Second, whenever she switches forms she recovers a good bit of any STUN damage she might have sustained to that point. This serves to make her various forms capable of mounting a more effective defense, and can also serve to awaken her from some peril that has rendered a previous form unconscious.

 

Circe’s various aspects each have their own powers and preferred tactics, summarized below and on the individual character sheets.

Circe – The core personality is decidedly not a fighter. Her powers serve to alert her to potential threats and hopefully avoid them until she can transform into a form that lets her better deal with the problem.

Little Circe – This form also isn’t well-suited for dealing with threats, other than by sensing them and providing some ways to hide, but she can also calm animal threats or even call upon animals to protect or fight for her.

Angela - Though not an offensive powerhouse, and preferring to deal with problems through appeals to reason or emotion (i.e., PRE attack), this form is capable of disabling opponents from a range. She’s also capable of healing herself or any allies in combat, as well as providing succor to the wounded after a battle. Angela will not willingly transform to Jezebel, Lilith or Monster form, and would be very reluctant to choose to turn to Diana (-5 Penalty to Ego Roll to change forms).

Lilith, – This aspect of Circe is not much for subtlety. She prefers hand-to-hand combat, mostly using her talons but utilizing her hooves either as a surprise move or if her hands are bound. She also likes to start off a fight with a PRE attack (usually following an extremely violent action), hoping to render opponents helpless with fear. If all else fails, though, she may try some trickery using Mimicry, or to fast-talk her way through a situation using Persuasion. If things go badly for her, she’s not averse to calling up Monster to unleash some pain.

Jezebel – This persona is interested in pleasure, not combat, and prefers to get her way via manipulation instead of fighting, but if pressed and unable to disable an opponent via Mind Control, she will use her animated/prehensile hair to mount a defense of last resort. She’s more likely to try to call up Diana or Lilith, though (choice of which depending on how much whomever she’s fighting managed to anger her).

Diana – Diana is all about fighting, and she does it well, though she can get carried away in combat under some circumstances. She prefers to use her martial arts attacks (and will sometimes combine them with her ch’i powers as part of a multiple-power attack), but she has her ranged "spirit bow" attack for a reason and won’t hesitate to use it when appropriate. She will use her movement abilities to good effect in order to gain position advantages or surprise maneuver bonuses, and will also take advantage of environmental features that provide cover, etc. as appropriate. She also understands the value of a good PRE attack – getting an opponent to flee or surrender is still a win. She isn’t averse to calling on Angela if she or someone she’s protecting is badly wounded, but she is very unlikely to call up Monster and will only switch places with Gloria if she is completely unable to effectively fight an opponent. She won’t invoke the Lilith persona at all.

Gloria – This form is not much interested in combat, and if given an option will likely turn control over to Angela or Diana to handle that, but if need be she will use her powerful Transform abilities to stop a threat. She is extremely unlikely to ever voluntarily give up control to Jezebel, Lilith or Monster, but she is quick to switch over to Little Circe, Angela or Marie if things seem safe and she’s in a situation she thinks one of them would enjoy. This reflects her basic orientation toward wish-fulfillment and making others happy, but it doesn’t always result in the best strategic judgment.

Marie – Marie will, of course, seek to think her way out of a situation, but if this isn’t practical, she will dispassionately hand over control to whichever other form she judges most appropriate to a situation – even ones like Monster or Lilith that most of the others avoid, as she recognizes that even the more unpleasant aspects have their uses and advantages. When in doubt about the best course of action, she will take a phase to consider her perceived options using her precognitive Intuition. Marie's astounding breadth of knowledge and high intuition allow her to often pull off truly amazing technical and scientific feats or jury-rig devices quickly and with only minimal time and access to only the most limited resources.

Monster – Monster doesn’t stop and think, she just attacks, pausing only if a child or animal is endangered. Monster doesn’t intentionally change into anything else, but unless there’s fighting going on or near-total darkness, she also isn’t going to stick around long at all.

 

Some of the character sheets for Circe’s forms include Disadvantages for which she receives zero points. In many cases, these simply reflect Disadvantages that form should have, to portray the form’s personality and general purpose, but the various Accidental Change conditions listed work a bit differently. These serve to underscore the largely-involuntary nature of Circe’s changes, and the mental instability inherent in her underlying DID condition. Accidental Change conditions with listed point values always reflect situations that have significant potential to put Circe in danger or get her in trouble of some sort. Often this is also the case with the zero-point Accidental Changes, but some of those serve more to illustrate the character’s overall instability, the degree of emotional connection between her different “selves†or the symbolic connections between different circumstances and certain of her personality states. (Some other Disadvantages are given fewer points than warranted by their severity, but that’s just to prevent too many points from coming from one category of Disadvantages; under-costed Disadvantages are included in the interest of defining an interesting character, rather than worrying about min/maxing points.)

Campaign Use: As something of a tragic figure, Circe works better in Bronze/Iron-Age superhero campaigns emphasizing a more “modern†or “graphic novel†feel than she does in Golden/Silver Age or “four-color†campaigns. She can serve in any number of roles beyond simply being a straight-forward opponent – in fact, that’s probably the worst way to use the character. The GM should make sure to emphasize that she’s more troubled than villainous. She may be used as a dupe or pawn for some evil organization (see “Circe Plot Seedsâ€), or she can serve to tell stories dealing with themes such as the effects of child abuse and domestic violence, the tragedy of mental illness or the multidimensional nature of human personality – hopefully without getting too preachy. Once the players figure out what she’s all about, she can easily be played as both a sympathetic figure and a threat, and characters with any sort of positive moral code are likely to be torn between stopping her more dangerous forms and trying to not cause her unnecessary harm or mental anguish. She could also provide and ongoing and unusual mystery for the players to solve; if the GM wants to ignore some of the history established above, the PCs may be the ones who first discover that someone who seems at first to be just a shy and jumpy woman is actually several different super-beings the PCs have encountered – and responsible for a string of unsolved crimes, including murder. Circe may even seek help from the PCs in figuring out what is behind her “blackouts†and lost time, putting them in the tough position of having to fight someone who came to them for assistance.

 

Circe isn’t likely to really Hunt anyone, but it’s possible that one of her forms may decide to make things difficult for a character for awhile. The Angela persona may take offense at characters she perceives as having lax moral standards or those with supernatural powers and motifs, while Lilith may decide to try to make life difficult for a morally virtuous hero, perhaps by trying to put him in situations that force him to compromise his values. Jezebel may simply develop a sexual attraction toward a handsome PC, while Little Circe might become fascinated with a hero’s animal companion.

 

There are several options for making Circe more powerful. One could, of course, simply increase her base points in Multiform, thus providing some or all of the other forms with more points for larger attacks and additional powers. This can be very cost-effective, as one character point translates to 5 points of powers and skills each form other than the base form. Angela, Diana, Lilith or Monster could easily be made more powerful in this manner, but there’s really no reason to make some of Circe’s other forms any more powerful – and doing so may violate the basic character concept. As is, Little Circe is based on fewer than the available 400 points, but there’s no reason for either to be a combat powerhouse.

 

Another option is to give Circe more Multiforms. She can have up to 8 more 400-point forms for only +5 points. This can provide her with lots more options, if not necessarily more raw power, but the GM has to be careful that the additional forms fit the theme of an abuse survivor with a fragmented personality, rather than just providing a lot of combat options. A group of forms defined as a power-armor form, an ice elemental form and a flying brick just don’t fit into Circe's overall motif. Alternate forms that might fit Circe’s overall theme include a super-durable form with lots of STUN, BODY and/or Damage Reduction but no real offensive capacity (representing someone intended to take lots of pain when the other forms can’t come up with a way to escape or avoid being hurt), a form that projects the pain and abuse Circe has suffered in the past on those who would hurt her in the present (represented by Ego Attack, various sorts of Drain or an NND attack), or an outgoing “social chameleon†form with lots of interaction skills (to handle social situations when it’s important to make a good impression, or which call for a less physical or self-centered approach than that favored by Jezebel).

 

To make Circe less powerful, simply tone down some of the offensive powers and combat-related skills, particularly those of the Diana, Lilith and Monster forms.

 

CIRCE PLOT SEEDS

Circe’s Lilith persona has caught the attention of a group of evil mystics, such as DEMON or the Circle of the Scarlet Moon. They decide to use her for a pawn, or come up with some way to allow her to dominate Circe’s other personalities – either way, the PCs have to figure out how to free her from the evil influence without making things worse.

 

Circe escapes custody after finding out that her mother and stepfather, Helen Clayton and Gary Kowalski, have moved to Millennium City. Little Circe might simply miss her mother, but Angela may plan to confront the pair and try to get them to confess their sins, while Diana may decide the best way to stop them from hurting Circe again is to go give Gary a pounding, then release Monster to inflict some lethal payback for all the past hurt.

 

A group of con men and hucksters posing as a religious revival group encounter Angela and trick the naïve, angelic alter into working with them. What do the PCs do when they figure out they’re raking in money in donations by having Angela perform faith healing and other miracles?

Appearance: Little Circe is a pretty, five-year old girl with blonde hair. Anyone who has seen her older self will immediately recognize the similar features, including her striking blue eyes. She is always dressed in either a short, white dress, a pink jumper or pink flannel pajamas. She behaves with all the energy, playfulness and naiveté that characterizes a very young child.

Quote:“I don’t know where my Momma and Daddy are, but my friends are around here somewhere.â€

Background: Little Circe is Circe Clayton’s original personality; her emotional development essentially stopped at age five, due to severe abuse. Other parts of herself took over at that point, leaving little Circe to never grow up.

Powers/Tactics: Note that Circe's ability to summon Animal Friends is dependent upon animals being in the area and able to get to her. Even if she's at a zoo, creatures such as lions and bears probably won't be able to come to her assistance (though the elephant or camel that normally gives rides to children might come running). Thus, while she can summon up to four animals of up to 200 points each (a point total that covers creatures such as bears, tigers and rhinos, among others), in most circumstances she is likely to instead get dogs, stray cats, hawks, or maybe horses, deer, coyote or cattle when she's in a rural environment.

Height: 1.70 m Hair: Blonde

Weight: 65.00 kg Eyes: Yellow, with black slit pupils

Appearance: Lilith combines obviously stereotypical ideas about demonic evil with Little Circe’s deep fear and hatred of snakes. Though her general facial structure resembles Circe’s adult appearance, one has to look closely to notice this. Lilith is a bit taller than adult Circe, though of the same general build. Her skin is dark red and covered with small, smooth scales like a snake. Her hair is a brighter blonde than Circe’s and hangs to her mid-back. Her fingers end in long, black talons and she has prominent fangs, like a vampire. A pair of small, curved horns jut from her forehead, right below the hairline. Her eyes are yellow with a black slit pupil, and her shapely legs are covered with wiry black fur from the knees down and end in black, cloven hooves. She wears a tight black dress with deep cleavage, high cut on the sides. Lilith gives off a faint sulfur odor all the time; this same odor is much more prominent whenever she uses her Hellfire Breath powers.

Personality: The Lilith personality is almost a campy stereotype of evil – evil for evil’s sake. That pretty much sums up her personality, and her goals – she has no specific goals other than to cause misery and perform malicious acts. The GM is encouraged to play that up. Sometimes it’s fun to run into a villain who doesn’t have any noble characteristics or complex motives. The GM should make sure the players keep in mind, though, that this personality is still part of a generally good - though profoundly disturbed - person, because that awareness puts them in some dilemma as to how to handle Lilith.

 

Though not a master plotter, Lilith is extremely dangerous, given her lethal attacks and complete willingness to use them, unfettered by mercy or any concern for consequences. She will readily take hostages, kill innocents and set busloads of nuns on fire, either to give the heroes something to keep them busy, or just because.

Height: 1.65 m Hair: Blonde

Weight: 63.00 kg Eyes: Blue

Appearance: Jezebel shares Circe’s facial features, but hers are sharper and more perfect, without a single flaw. Her hair is also quite a bit longer, hanging past the small of her back, and her figure is much more rounded and sensual. She is perfectly (if perhaps a bit heavily) made-up and favors extremely revealing and provocative outfits consisting of miniskirts, black stockings, stiletto heels and sheer, low-cut blouses.

Quote:“Am I up for some fun? Ohhhhh, yeah… any kind of fun you can imagine, and lots you probably can’t.â€

Powers/Tactics: A note is in order regarding the listed defenses for Jezebel's Constriction NND attack. In addition to more standard "rigid neck and chest armor" and "PD Force Field", a listed defense is "Does Not Breathe". Not all forms of LS: Extended or Self-Contained Breathing qualify for this condition, as simply wearing an oxygen mask doesn't help much against an attack which compresses the chest so the lungs can't function. This defense refers to beings that truly don't have to breathe, such as robots, golems and undead characters.

Appearance: Diana shares Circe’s general facial features, but hers are a bit rougher and more masculine. She is tall and muscular, with tanned skin and short, blonde hair. She wears a simple white tunic with a leather belt and boots that lace up to her knees.

Quote:“You only *think* that hurts. If you don’t leave now, I’m going to show you what pain is really all about.â€

Powers/Tactics: Diana’s abilities are for the most part self-explanatory. Her Spirit Bow ability causes shimmering energy in the shape of a bow and arrow to appear when she makes gestures as if loading and drawing a bow. Diana tends to make low, breathy sounds when invoking her ch’i Powers, but can do so in complete silence.

Height: 1.62 m Hair: White

Weight: 65.00 kg Eyes: Blue

Appearance: Gloria looks like a much older, cheerier and more playful version of Big Circe – like Little Circe all grown up but not much changed in personality, and with large, bright-yellow butterfly wings that appear whenever she wants to fly. She has short, white hair and wears white slippers and a blousy white gown decorated with countless bright-colored gemstones. She is constantly surrounded by motes of light in all the colors of the rainbow, which circle around her in ever-changing orbits. These also function as her Force Field, which manifests as several of the light-motes converging at the point where an attack strikes her to deflect the impact.

Quote:“Well, aren’t *you* a grouchy fellow. I think it’s time for you to go to time out!â€

Powers/Tactics: Gloria is able to cause almost any imaginable form of transformation. She can turn rocks into gold, bears into rabbits, weapon foci into licorice, VIPER agents into glass figurines or annoying superheroes into action figures. She can also create objects, substances and entangling bonds from thin air, (relatively) permanently shrink people to mouse-size, grant intelligence to animals, turn mean people into nice ones, and just about anything else that she fancies, though she cannot Transform a person's spirit or soul. However, she is much more likely to transform people into funny or pretty forms than unpleasant ones – turning someone into a stuffed animal or painting is more her style than turning someone into a slug or a pile of buffalo chips – and she is not at all prone to create weapons or anything else likely to cause anyone harm. All of her Transforms can be reversed by having someone spend an entire turn consciously and honestly wishing for the Transformed item or being to turn back to its original form.

Height: 1.65 m Hair: Blonde

Weight: 58.00 kg Eyes: Blue

Appearance: Circe’s Marie persona looks a great deal like Circe, though more pale and with a shorter, more severe hairstyle (something like a longer bowl cut) and silver wire-rim glasses. She favors nondescript but very neat outfits, typically a well-pressed blouse and slacks, and always has a pen or mechanical pencil nearby, in addition to her mini-tool kit.

Quote:“Give me a few moments… I’ll come up with something.â€

Powers/Tactics: Marie's Ms MacGyver abilities (Diana's coined name for Marie, inspired by the famous TV adventurer) can let her pull off truly astounding feats, such as rigging up useful chemical concoctions from household substances, jury-rigging a trap or weapon, or instantly identifying the right password to access a computer file based on cryptic clues. Her mini-tool kit (a belt-pack of micro-tools which rolls up for easy storage at the small of her back, much like a fanny pack) contains a wide variety of basic tools and useful items, such as tweezers, small screwdrivers and chisels, a magnifying lens, lock picks, small tubes of machine oil, fingerprint dust, etc. There's a basic 14- chance she will have any items needed for a given situation, or a reasonable substitute (the lesser value for Activation Roll reflects the fact that the kit will reliably include certain very basic items, such as those listed).

Appearance: Monster is the Multiform that looks least like Circe. Covered with thick, shaggy, honey-blonde fur, this hulking form is nearly 7 feet tall and is barely recognizable as female, or even human. Circe’s distinctive blue eyes are barely visible through the fur; observers are much more likely to notice her hugs hands, with long, powerful fingers ending in sharp, black talons.

For over a hundred years the dark ones have come. He beats them, again and again he tricks them, bests them and pushes them back, but they never stop coming. Johnny has tried seeking shelter on Holy Ground, but his life is now tied too closely to the devil’s golden fiddle, and the owner of that damned instrument can not rest comfortably in any sacred space. Johnny is still proud, still in many ways that same young fool who accepted the devils challenge, but he is also deeply tired. He wants an ending, he wants peace, but he can not lay his fiddle down.Quote:“You can do your best you son of a bitch, but I’m the best there’s ever been.â€Background: The devil went down to Georgia

He was looking for a soul to steal

He was in a bind cause he was way behind

And he was willing to make a deal

 

Charlie Daniels Band, “The Devil went down to Georgia.â€

 

Now “Johnny Dee†is not the name he was born with, and he is not from Georgia. The rest of the story is more true than not.

 

The boy said "My name's Johnny

And it might be a sin

But I'll take you bet, your gonna regret

Cause I'm the best that's ever been"

 

Now we all know the story, and we know that Johnny won. He got that fiddle made of gold, and a gift or two as well. This next part is not in the story most folks have heard.

 

Johnny rosin up your bow

And play your fiddle hard

Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia

And the devil deals the cards

 

Johnny once told me that he was a wise man, a hex doctor, last in a long line, and I believe him. He knew that old devil was coming, and he knew that someone had to meet him. Johnny was not a Georgia boy, but he did love that place, and when the devil came, Johnny stood up to meet him.

 

When the devil finished Johnny said

Well you're, pretty good old son

But sit down in that chair right there

And let me show you how it's done

 

People forget that fighting devils is not so easy, especially for a man like Johnny, who thinks he can fight them with will and skill but not with faith. Johnny won that fight, and he took that golden fiddle, but a gift from the devil has a price, even if you win it fair and square.

 

Johnny said "Devil just come on back

If you ever want to try again

I done told you once, you son of a bitch

I'm the best that's ever been"

 

For more than a hundred years now Johnny’s been wandering this fine country, playing his golden fiddle and driving off devils and beasties of every description. Still, the devil keeps trying to catch Johnny with his guard down, to trick him or trap him and get back that golden fiddle. Johnny can’t turn to God now, not without repenting all the things he’s done, and he won’t bow down to the devil. Now one day you might meet a young man with an old man’s eyes, a wild man with a fiddle made of gold. On that day you might mind your manners, and you might say your prayers, because the devil is coming and no mistake. You stay close to that old man, and don’t you be afraid, because even now after all these years, he’s the best that’s ever been.

 

Fire on the mountain run boys run

Devils in the house at the rising sun

chicken in the bread pan picking out dough

Granny will your dog bite no-Child-no

Powers/Tactics: Without his fiddle, Johnny Dee is a fairly powerful occultist, though there are others who are far better. He has a great depth of knowledge, and can cast a wide range of effective minor charms, brew potions, and enchant minor items of magic. His charms further provide him with enhanced physical abilities, extraordinary luck and a nose for danger. With his fiddle, Johnny can become something more.

 

The fiddle will greatly enhance the magical powers of those that play it, if they have the skill to play it well. The player must pick a single spell (i.e. allocate VPP points for it), then play the fiddle to boost the energy available for the spell. Two phases of playing are generally enough. The extra power will fade after a few minutes.

 

Most of Johnny’s spells will follow a musical theme. Most often, he will play or sing a few bars of a favorite song to work his magic.

Campaign Use: Johnny makes for a challenging to play but entertaining PC in a 700+ point game, and can serve as an effective mentor or patron to a magic-based character in a 350 point game. Adventures using Johnny as an NPC should generally involve the theme of members of the descending hierarchy attempting to act in America. Note that the Devil may well be using Johnny; many of the occult foes Johnny has faced over the years have been those that the hierarchy was not displeased to see fall.Next Challenge: A violent Villain who could reform, and the plot seeds to get them there.

Height: 1.84 m Hair: silver
Weight: 95.00 kg Eyes: green (right eye only)
Appearance: muscular, lithe and silver-haired and fit for a man in his late fifties. Wade has many (now-faded)tattoos and scars that he picked up in his youth. He is also missing his left eye (long story).

 

Costume: dark-blue chainmail-reinforced fibers with battleship gray gloves,boots, and military-style utility-belt. His mask is hal-blue/half-gray and his AutoLuger and Combat Staff are uncharacteristically, a bright gold in color. Whether this is out of a sense of fashion, whimsy or tactics is unknown.

Personality: Consummate professional super-mercenary. Very well-regarded in the super-villain community and often used by master villains as a sounding board for their schemes.

 

Recently Wade has become a little more reckless of late and tends to take chances and risks that he normally wouldn't. This has not been noticed by his employers and peers, yet.

 

Situations where he's confronted by his personal life and family tend to disarm him and throw him off his game a little.

Quote:"Killing you will be business and a pleasure."Background: Renegade 13 was the code name assigned to Wade Stilson, one of the few successful surviving members of a top-secret super-commando program, herafter known as "The Program".

It's unclear whether Wade's amoral and nihilistic nature was why he was chosen for the program or whether it was a side effect of the "treatments".

At some point Renegade 13 and the Program had a break-up which led to Wade operating solo as a mercenary for hire.

For over 15 years, Renegade 13 built up his reputation as a super-mercenary villain, working for master-villains, criminal organizations, enemy countries and at least twice for the Program, the same agency that wants him dead. Along the way, Wade had a dalliance with a super-villainess and later found out that she gave birth to triplets, one of which became a super-villain and later died accidentally (although his death was still avenged by Wade, who killed the hero involved with his son's death), the other became a super-hero and the third was a daughter whom Wade was unaware existed until recently.

Powers/Tactics: Prefers to attack by ambush and usually with support. If working alone, Wade will close in with an opponent on the fringes of a battle and concentrate on that enemy until he's down and then move onto the next. If working solo, Wade will operate defensively and alternate opponents or engage a few at the same time, with the intent of distracting and delaying them until help arrives or his mission has been completed. If things start to become unsalvageable, Wade will attempt to escape.Campaign Use: Renegade 13 is a super-villain currently going through a mid-life crisis. disenchantment and boredom with his occupation as well as the startling revelation that he has a daughter, have caused him to rethink his future. He has been giving serious thought to either retiring to another country or negotiating a deal with PRIMUS that would provide him with amnesty for past crimes and protection for his daughter in return for working for them full time. Wade knows that this type of arrangement would probably not sit well with the hero-community, as he has been responsible for the deaths of three superheroes.For the next challenge, howsabout a character who is a homage to an obscure 70's character (like Omega The Unknown, Stalker or one of the old Atlas characters). I'd also like to request that the character not be one who has already been posted on this or another thread.

Height: 1.84 m Hair: silver
Weight: 95.00 kg Eyes: green (right eye only)
Appearance: muscular, lithe and silver-haired and fit for a man in his late fifties. Wade has many (now-faded)tattoos and scars that he picked up in his youth. He is also missing his left eye (long story).

 

Costume: dark-blue chainmail-reinforced fibers with battleship gray gloves,boots, and military-style utility-belt. His mask is hal-blue/half-gray and his AutoLuger and Combat Staff are uncharacteristically, a bright gold in color. Whether this is out of a sense of fashion, whimsy or tactics is unknown.

Personality: Consummate professional super-mercenary. Very well-regarded in the super-villain community and often used by master villains as a sounding board for their schemes.

 

Recently Wade has become a little more reckless of late and tends to take chances and risks that he normally wouldn't. This has not been noticed by his employers and peers, yet.

 

Situations where he's confronted by his personal life and family tend to disarm him and throw him off his game a little.

Quote:"Killing you will be business and a pleasure."Background: Renegade 13 was the code name assigned to Wade Stilson, one of the few successful surviving members of a top-secret super-commando program, herafter known as "The Program".

It's unclear whether Wade's amoral and nihilistic nature was why he was chosen for the program or whether it was a side effect of the "treatments".

At some point Renegade 13 and the Program had a break-up which led to Wade operating solo as a mercenary for hire.

For over 15 years, Renegade 13 built up his reputation as a super-mercenary villain, working for master-villains, criminal organizations, enemy countries and at least twice for the Program, the same agency that wants him dead. Along the way, Wade had a dalliance with a super-villainess and later found out that she gave birth to triplets, one of which became a super-villain and later died accidentally (although his death was still avenged by Wade, who killed the hero involved with his son's death), the other became a super-hero and the third was a daughter whom Wade was unaware existed until recently.

Powers/Tactics: Prefers to attack by ambush and usually with support. If working alone, Wade will close in with an opponent on the fringes of a battle and concentrate on that enemy until he's down and then move onto the next. If working solo, Wade will operate defensively and alternate opponents or engage a few at the same time, with the intent of distracting and delaying them until help arrives or his mission has been completed. If things start to become unsalvageable, Wade will attempt to escape.Campaign Use: Renegade 13 is a super-villain currently going through a mid-life crisis. disenchantment and boredom with his occupation as well as the startling revelation that he has a daughter, have caused him to rethink his future. He has been giving serious thought to either retiring to another country or negotiating a deal with PRIMUS that would provide him with amnesty for past crimes and protection for his daughter in return for working for them full time. Wade knows that this type of arrangement would probably not sit well with the hero-community, as he has been responsible for the deaths of three superheroes.For the next challenge, howsabout a character who is a homage to an obscure 70's character (like Omega The Unknown, Stalker or one of the old Atlas characters). I'd also like to request that the character not be one who has already been posted on this or another thread.[/quote']Quoted and text color changed so folks could see it.

Usually wears jeans and a loose sweater that has seen better days.Personality: Rex is charming and friendly when dealing with normal people, but becomes deeply suspicious when dealing with supers. At best he thinks of them as well meaning lunatics, and he treats most as liars, fools, or tools of the Conspiracy. Rex has seen more than one Super leap to his death to prove he could fly, or get shot to pieces while boasting of his invulnerability; he knows that many of these masked madmen really do believe that they have powers. It must be some form of brainwashing …

 

Rex has no idea that he is (arguably) one of Earth’s most powerful Supers, and would mock the suggestion.

Quote:“Yes, of course you’re a God. Now please, get away from the ledge, and let’s take a nice, safe elevator ride, and you can tell me all about it.â€

 

“He would have gotten away with it if it hadn’t been for us nosy kids.â€

Background: Rex Danger: Ace freelance reporter, best selling author, journalist, conspiracy theorist, and quite possibly the world’s most powerful Super.

 

It all started in 1969 with a gang of college kids wandering the country in their groovy Mystery Van. Dobie Gilman was the leader of the group then, a football hero whose dreams of becoming a cop would be derailed by a life long battle with addiction. Nicole Jape was a journalism student, and Heather South was a pre-med student with a desperate crush on Dobie and a talent for recreational pharmacology second to none. And Rex? Rex was a wreck, a journalism student who’d eat, smoke, or swallow anything for a thrill. From a strict religious background, Rex sought freedom in that summer trip, and planned to open his mind even if he needed to use a crowbar.

 

That summer was insane, on every level. The gang, stoned out of their minds and driven by Dobie’s urge to play detective and Rex’s budding journalistic instincts, solved over a dozen minor crimes in the Midwest, making the police of several states look like fools. In the process they encountered cultists, crooks, self proclaimed mystics, even a few Super Villains. Every time, every single time, it turned out that the “magic†and “super powers†they encountered were nothing more than sleight of hand and technological trickery.

 

Then came the Thing in the House. A deformed freak, it terrorized the gang past the edge of sanity, capturing them one by one, until it came to Rex. It cornered him, he screamed … and it vanished. Rex searched the room, and found a rigged projector and sound equipment! It had been a fake! He tried to tell the others, but their minds had broken. None of them would ever be the same.

 

When the police investigated the scene, they found no projectors or sound equipment. That’s when Rex first understood the power of the Conspiracy.

 

Rex got off drugs and re-committed himself to journalism. He was good, one of the best. He uncovered frauds, solved mysteries the police couldn’t handle, and won a trunk full of awards. He also learned how to box, and turned his long, lanky frame into a tower of lean muscle. Despite a lifetime of effort, he has yet to break the Super-Conspiracy.

 

Now in his early forties, Rex continues to fight the good fight, writing book after book and even sometimes managing to get a TV special as he debunks the lie of Super Humanity. Rex knows that maniacs like Doctor Destroyer have access to incredible technology, and that some so-called Super Heroes are good men and women trying to serve their fellow citizens. He just can’t understand why they claim to have “powersâ€, or why so many of his fellow journalists seem ready to swallow the lies.

 

Still, Rex loves a mystery, and he’ll never stop searching. He owes it to the gang.

Powers/Tactics: Any form of non-technologically based power under 75 active points will simply fail within around half a kilometer of Rex, unless Rex or the user of the power are under full cover (for purposes of Rex’s Suppress, non technological Force Walls and Entangles do not count as cover even if opaque). Powers over 75 active points will lose 75 points of effect. This power is fully invisible, and Rex has no idea that he has it. Even Superhuman characteristics are affected.

 

If threatened with physical violence, Rex is a big, well muscled man and a trained boxer. He is also blessed with quick reflexes. He will try to talk his way out of trouble, but is not adverse to backing talk with a good right hook.

Campaign Use: Rex makes an absurdly annoying foil for a Super group; just having him show up at a crime in progress is enough to cripple most Supers, both heroes and villains. Only gadget using Supers and Martial Artists are unaffected, and even they may find any mystic abilities or inhumanly high characteristics (any stat over 20 or SPD over 4 unless the character has NCM) nullified. More than one villainous plot has fallen to pieces because Rex happened to be taking a picture, and more than one hero has been severely injured trying to prove his Powers to Rex.

 

Plot Seed: Rex decides to “debunk†the team. How can they fight crime when their powers keep mysteriously failing?

 

Plot Seed: Viper suspects the existence of an incredible Power Nullifying Super in the city. The heroes suspect that Rex may be the Null. Can they stop Viper from getting their hands on Rex? Do they want to?

Next Challenge: A 350 Point Vehicle Master, with at least two vehicle write-ups

Speed Racer was a promising young race car driver, however, as time past, his youthful speed slipped away and he was faced with an early retirement. His mechanic friend suggested that he used something to pick him up, claiming it was all natural, but instead it was Cyberline. This black market version proved to be addictive, but made him incredible fast, able to have supernatural reflexes, this plus his native ability to sense dangerous hazards once again made him a demon on wheels (or in the air).

I like the idea. You can easilly sink the points into the Mark 5 and a base to store it, plus some contacts and maybe followers. Also, Luck and some action hero tricks, and maybe a light Martial Art (just some basic Karate and Judo).
