Strike Force Conversions

Recommended Posts

As many of you know, Aaron Allston's Strike Force was one of the best, most influential, and beloved gaming supplements ever written for any game ever.  It transformed much of what was done in Champions games, adding a new system for martial arts, "blue booking" and many other concepts to Champions.  If you haven't ever seen this, get it.  Its hard to find these days (maybe a reprint would be good?), but worth every penny.

 

I'm going to be rebuilding the main characters from Strike Force into 6th edition as a tribute to Allston, who died earlier this year leaving the world far poorer.  Depending on my time and energy I'll get at least the main characters of the Strike Force team up, then more as time goes on.  Some are just in summary form so I might not touch those.

 

If any of the players is here and wishes their character taken down, say the word and they're gone.  If you want more information about these characters... buy the book!

 

The first up: Kestrel!

 

Kestrel is a member of a winged people race from the far north in Canada, but a mutant among her people with mental powers.  As Allston described her, "Kestrel is the Voice of Conscience. Since she is unfamiliar with earth culture, she asks many tough questions about things Terrans take for granted."

 

A variant of Kestrel made it into my Champions campaign as one of the Canadian superteams.

 

Rebuilding her was interesting because it reminded me of some old rules, such as how Desolidification used to work (you bought the body it could pass through) and the change in Gliding, which made its active cost higher.

Please do the Reapers next. That way we do not have to hunt and peck to find out about them.

 

Kestral Notes:

Native American/Alien ancestry.

Tharr, winged folk of Champions Universe.

Homage to Dawnstar of Legion of Superiors fame.

 

Looking forward to more.

I'll try to do every character in the book that has a write up, starting with Strike Force and probably Shadow Warriors, then the villains.  I wouldn't want to fake the ones without a full writeup, although someone who was in the campaign might want to if they can get Mr Allston's notes.  I believe he was still running the campaign up until 10 years ago or even sooner.

Thank you. Your efforts are much appreciated. :thumbup:

Aaron mentions in the book that Lightrune was his creation, a GM-controlled NPC added to flesh out the team.

La Panthere, cat-themed martial artist.  I fudged a little on her initial build and gave her claws, because she has them in her picture, and it just makes sense for her concept.  An experiment by the Overlord, who to this day she fears greatly.  She's the first of the characters so far with faster than 4 speed too.

And now for Phosphene.  One of the founding members of Strike Force (along with ShadowWalker, Lightrune, and Swashbuckler) he ended up being a team leader eventually.  Of note in building him; Acrobatics cost 10 points originally and I'd forgotten about the old "Detective" skill which was sort of a catch-all deduction etc one.  This was Champions artist Denis Loubet's character, and he did all the character illustrations for the team and the game as far as I can tell.  I've always been a fan.  One of my favorites for the team, along with the next one for tomorrow, Plasma Ranger.

 

Phosphene is one of the Blood and I wonder if he was the origin of the entire concept, or just worked with Aaron Allston on his background to fit it into an idea Allston had?

Plasma Ranger is one of my favorite Strike Force characters.  I have always liked the powersuit idea, I liked Guardian from Alpha Flight, and I like the Texas Flag design of the suit.  It just works really well for me.  Plus, he's one of the few in the group without unluck.  Strike Force is a good suite of examples of why requiring 150+ points of complications is a bad idea; the whole team ends up a crippled batch of half-loonies.

Samiel, originally a Character I disregarded.  Weird costume, uninteresting.  But when I started writing her up for 6th edition, she became more interesting.  She has sort of a circus vibe, with shapeshifting abilities.  She's an alien who is very protective and kind but vicious in combat.  Like many of the Strike Force members, she has a gargantuan multipower, more than I'd allow in a campaign.  And that 8d6 NND!

She was kind of fun to color, to make her cute despite her unusual alien coloration.  I built her using combined powers to give each form a separate block; each shapeshift type has a distinct section of her multipower.  She probably would be built using multiform now, but it would have been a huge amount of duplication in each character sheet, and this is just easier.

Shade was different to build.  He has the "leap inside people and possess them" ability that Jericho from the 80s Teen Titans had, and it took a bit of work to translate to the new edition with some of the build.  I gave him the little trick I've used for this kind of thing before; STR usable on solid so he can "hold on" when his victim moves.  He had a Destroy originally (long term drain from Champions III) for his ability to put objects into people desolid then let them solidify, but I build it as an AVAD.  His Mind Control is gigantic, but I guess that was the best way to get it to be sure to work.

ShadowWalker, another original Strike Force.  He's a pretty generic ninja type, these days he'd probably have a few more interesting abilities like rapid attack and I'd have given him a lot more movement abilities and clinging (to simulate perching and super climbing).

Skyrocket, a bit more advanced build than the others.  Some in the Strike Force book had original and later, xp-increased versions, and some did not.  Skyrocket, from his notes, appears to be the later version with xps spent.  For a starting version, I advise going with no power pool and about 30 active points knocked off his Light Powers used-to-be-elemental-control.  Skyrocket is the fastest of the Strike Force characters (especially in flight!  60m movement at 6 speed!).

Yeah he's a shukenja, but he's one of the ones without a full character sheet.  D'arc, Defender, Ichi-ban, Napalm, and Vixen (plus the sentient team vehicle and robot Nightwing) were all members at one point but they only have summary write ups, no complications and very little information and no images.  I don't think I'll be posting those, since I don't have enough info for a write up.  I want this to be a tribute to Aaron Allston, rather than inventing stuff.

OK last of the main Strike Force characters is Stunner.  He's not a very interesting looking character, but in terms of overall balance and build he's one of the best in the group.  He has martial arts to fight with, a decent background and some skills, high enough movement to not rely on others to get into combat, and decent defenses.  He's also less unstable and insane than some others in the group (needing so many points in disads drove people to great lengths to get the points).

With all these characters, I have reduced their berserk to enraged, since I'm certain that's what they had in mind, but it wasn't a valid option at the time.  More than half of Strike Force has berserk as a disad in their original write ups, which is either a sign of Wolverine influence or just needing points badly but they'd be crazed psychopaths in play.

 

Note: The active cost of Stunner's Speed Drain was 100 points, even though it was 1d6 (this is because in Champions back then the drain was based on the cost of the power, and drained points straight off the stat rather than character points) so I've converted it to its equivalent, which makes for a really, really scary weapon.  It doesn't really "stun" anything despite the name, but reducing targets to 0 speed totally immobilizes them, so its pretty similar.  In the original rules you couldn't take someone under 1 speed, but with 6th edition, Stunner is even more frightening.  And annoying to a GM.

According to the HSR book 1 (pg 45), yeah their DCV is zeroed out.  It doesn't shut off powers, though, they just can't use them or turn any more on.

 

 

A character with SPD 0 cannot move; he’s frozen in place. He has DCV 0, and Hit Location modifiers for Placed Shots made against him are halved. He can only take Post-Segment 12 Recoveries, and drowns as if he had SPD 2. His Persistent Powers, such as many defenses, remain in effect.

 

I am not sure what Luster used her detect light for, my guess is to analyze energy and light that she would spot, such as strange glows and such.  Its just part of her ability to control light, I suppose.

Thank you I'm not sure if I like that call but I wanted to know what the official one. I've never had Speed Drain come up before though. Its add odd build for traditional "Stun Beam", IMO. Seems more like Time Manipulation ability.

 

I wasn't sure about Luster's power. It seemed like sight put another way. But its in the Unusual Sense group. Maybe it lets her effectively see even if there is light available as well as analyze odd light energy?

 

Or would that be more Spatial Awareness. Hm...

 

Does his background write up mention why Skyrocket's powers are reduced in sterile environments?

 

Sorry if I'm pestering you but I like the characters and I don't have access to the Strike Force book.
