Hi all. I got the idea for this character today while surfing during lunch. The concept was spawned from trying to make up a character with moon powers and I ended up with a psychologist (full moons and what not) who can change into various water forms (the moon controls the tides and stuff). Maybe after I tidy it up a bit I'll try to find a game for it.


Hydroforce (aka Moonchild)

Description: Due to beneficial side effect of his power, Hydroforce is tall, muscular, and in exceptional health. His costume is blue and white with a tsunami hazard symbol (a wave) on the chest.



Arlen Calder's father was a psychologist and his mother was one of his father's patients before they married. Some details of their relationship were a secret to Arlen until his power became active. Arlen followed in his father's foosteps and also became a psychcologist. One day while he was performing counceling sessions at the city's prison, he was attacked by one of the inmates. Unbeknownst to Arlen, his patient was a pyrokinetic who had repressed their power and memories after a childhood tragedy. When the prisoner's power suddenly manifested, Arlen's latent powers also activated saving him. He soon discovered that his mother had been possessed by a water spirit known as an ondine and that his father saved her. The prisoner would later become the sometime superhero/ sometime supervillain known as Firewalker.



Perhaps out of a feeling of responsibility for Firewalker, Arlen chose to become a superhero and use his powers to help those he cannot help as a psychologist. Secretly, he also enjoys testing his abilities against supervillains in combat.



"You're in over your head now!"



Hydroforce has practiced manipulating his forms in combat and utilizes tactics that take advantage of his verstaility. He also uses his psychology training to support his teamates both in and out of combat.



Hydroforce prefers using his ice form to fill the role of the team's brick but will use his other forms when the ice form's great mass is not convenient.

Re: Hydroforce


A 400pt Multiform (x4 Number of Forms, Instant Change) would cost you 95pts.


It would be cheaper, allow you a bit more flexibility with the individual forms, plus allow you to have a 4th Form (maybe a Hybrid-form, involving elements of all 3 states of Water?)


You can even add in fun things like 'Personality Loss' if you stay in one form too long...


Cool character! (Lame Pun intended)

Re: Hydroforce


I think the reason that I am shy of them is the multiple character sheet thing. It was hard to manage a multiform on Herocentral (insert tears here that Herocentral is still down) for example.


I feel your pain. :(


At HC, the one thing I did was have the GM setup the form(s) as NCP's on the 'Character' page. Yes, you'd need to send it to your GM every time there was a change to a form, but at least the info was all there to see.
