How to build Loki


Recommended Posts

I am trying to build Loki and would like suggestions unless someone has built him already. I will be playing him in a upcoming game. 400 point build so a younger Loki. Also not really bad somewhat more of a hero. Any help would be appreciated.

Things to keep in mind of your build.

 

The traditional Loki was skilled in magic, and had a natural affinity with illusions and fire category. Even if he is going to be a hero, he is not going to play fair and square.

 

He is a trickster god. He is a pygmy frost giant. He doesn't feal the connection he has with his fellow Asgardians. He also knows that 'good' and 'evil' depends on how you look at certain actions. What is good for mortals might be bad for Asgardians. What is good for Asgardians might be evil for Frost Giants. Ect, ect, ect.

Probably a good place to start without getting too complicated with things like VPPs would be to look at the following:

  • Images
  • Invisibility
  • Teleporation
  • Shape Shift

 

Between those 4 powers you can really, really be difficult to predict.

Decent stats, somewhat superhuman Str.  He'll be a demi-brick with additional magic powers.  He probably won't overpower your campaign.  A lot of the time he's just going to hit stuff with his staff, or shoot stuff with fire magic.  But he can turn invisible, create all sorts of illusions, and teleport.  This is a starting character in 5th edition Hero, so it should convert to 6th edition pretty easily.

that's true he would be more of an anti hero

Traditionally, Loki does "magic", specialising in fire and illusion, but most comic books make Loki a mystical Jack of All Trades. But also remember, these versions of Loki tend to be villains designed to fight entire superhero groups or one powerful character.

 

And you don't want that. You want, at worse either an anti-hero or an anti-villain.

Well mental and illusions are zone powers. Possible teleportation and dimension travel. A blast and his knives. I am thinking possibly a alternate Loki. Same basic powers he has but not really resentful of Thor and Odin. 

Ummm zone powers? But yeah you can do an alternate Loki. Depending on game tone, his knives could be defined as Blast instead of Killing.

Let me see.

 

In Life Support...

 

Longevity: While there is no account of Asgardians dying from old age, there are obviously old Asgardians like Hodar (the blind archer). It is really up to GM interpretation, but 4cp worth can represent someone who ages slowly, but CAN die of old age.

 

Safe Environment: Having Intense Cold makes sense, being a frost giant. He could have other enviroments, but he could easily cast spells upon his body to protect himself from environment x. Assuming you give him a minor VVP.

 

Immunity: Being an Asgardian God doesn't protect them from poisons and disease. The fact that they get drunk, offen proves that. Still, you might want to give him 4 cp worth of each to make him immune to all Mortal Diseases and all Mortal Poisons (meaning only special poisons and diseases can affect them).

 

The rest of them don't seem special, as they need oxygen, sleep, and food just like us.

My notes say that this build was by Powerhouse Hermit on (most likely an earlier version of) these boards, long ago.  

749 points in 5E (I think), but a lot of the abilities could be easily scaled down or eliminated.
