275 Point Project Psi: Midnight


Recommended Posts

One night, when the clock struck midnight on new years eve a baby was born to this world. This baby was not a normal child, it was one that had been predicted.

 

The Midnight Society knew the child would be born.

 

The society would raise the child, teaching it how to use it's ability and how to be their warrior on the streets of the city. At 20 years old the child is now grown and fights on the streets of the city at night to protect

 

(Some things to add in, the great grandfather of the child was also a Midnight, the name the society gives it's warrior, furthermore he is the founder of the society in the 1930's.)

Re: 275 Point Project Psi: Midnight

 

It's actualy a build almost strait out of various Hero Game builds (charges or clips may be different), plus I think I will turn it into a video camera (Continuing fuel charges)

 

I do have some concerns about the character. While I like the Batman Light with Psi powers aspect, I wonder if it complicates the character to much. if it makes it so that the character will be stepping on the feet of the gadgeteer and martial artist characters too much.

 

I suspect if I were to trim some of the UT belt Items (Maybe drop the explosives and one of the movements?) it would help me with the feel of to much gadgeteer...not sure...

 

As for the MA, not as concerned with it, but maybe trim it down to a few manuevers or just skill levels with a HA...not sure

 

One ability I am thinking of adding (If I had the points) was a AP on all attacks, or a Find Weakness ability representing "seeing the future to hit the right spot...Thoughts?

Re: 275 Point Project Psi: Midnight

 

If you are looking to build a mentallist, then this is a good kernel of an idea. I like the skill levels. If you are instead looking to make someone in the Batman/Daredevil/Moon Knight/Nighthawk (Marvel)/etc. mold, then you have a tremendous candidate. Aside from the somewhat pedestrian DEX (and really it's not that low), you have a good martial artist. And the skills set and gadgets are likewise very robust, tight and elegant sets.

 

I can't remember who you made up for a martial artist or gadgeteer. But even blind to the other candidate you built, I would bet that this one is better.

 

Excellent job as usual, Jim

The Martial Artist has gone under so many names I can't even remember what I settled on (Seeker, Eagle's Claw, etc...), basicaly a play of Junomasters origin (Lived in a timeless monestary where he learned martial arts for 60 years) and the Gadgeteer was a green goblin like character

Re: 275 Point Project Psi: Midnight

 

looking over this character I am wondering if the limitation on the powers (affected as sense groups mental & clairsentience) is overvalued at -1/2. I definatly think it is worth at least a -1/4 but not sure if it really is a -1/2

Re: 275 Point Project Psi: Midnight

 

I think I see what you are trying to get at here:

 

20 3) Retrocognitive, Precognitive Clairsentience (Sight Group And Normal Hearing), MegaScale (1" = 1 km; +1/4) (81 Active Points); NCC (-2), Blackout (-1/2), Requires an attuned object (-1/4), Sense Affected As Mental sense group (-1/4)

 

 

The precog part power is probably unnecessary. The retrocog ought to be limited by time and vague and unclear instead of NCC (-2). Maybe NCC (-1, can turn it on but no control over what info), Vague and Unclear (-1/2), Time Chart Limitations (-1/2). That way it's the same cost for the retrocog but you have a little more control over it:

 

Retrocognitive Clairsentience (Sight Group And Normal Hearing), MegaScale (1" = 1 km; +1/4), NCC (-1, can activate but no choice over what he sees), Blackout (-1/2), Requires an attuned object (-1/4), Sense Affected As Mental sense group (-1/4), Vague and Unclear (-1/2), Time Chart Limitations (-1/2) Active: 62. Real: 15. END: 6

 

Assume that the GM will be able to drop hints based upon the other Clairsentience powers and handwave the precog.

 

And does he actually pull a motorcycle out of his utility belt? That would be AWE-SOME

Did some revising, still working on it, will probably change at least some of the +Str to hand attack...
