Alrighty! Does tech origin powers come with any caveats? Like in how a freeze ray would be different than an inmate power like Luminary's?
Since you are using a device instead of having it as an inherent power, you can use the Focus limitation to save points on your power.

Once thing to keep in mind about having your powers as a Focus is that while it does provide you with a point discount, it does lend itself to the possibility that you will be caught out without your gadget sometime. Be warned.

I have been working on my sheet for a bit, and I have her 98% done. I just need a name for her and a good pic of her in the secret id.

I don't know if I like using the tables on her, though. I'm debating on editing it a bit and taking that out.

I'll look up the limitation to see what it provides.


But! The advice is duly noted. Thankfully I'm not all about the win. And such a weakness could make for some narratively fun and dramatic moments of play.




I just need to think of a good reason to have such tech and abilities. Would having technology like that require bought resources (with points) or other such things? Would it fall into making it myself? How would that part of the it work?

If you buy the powers with Character Points, you have it, even if it is some bizarre alien/transdimensional/whatever-it-is tech. You could have invented it yourself (if you have purchased the skills for it), found it, or maybe even had someone give it to you. It just depends on your origin and the nature of the powers.

Also, I would like to see some sort of background for your characters. Why are you doing the hero thing? How did you get your powers? Also, Psychie Psychie I see you have a TBD Hunted. We need to work that out and see who is after you, and why.

No problem. As I said, she's nearly done, and I just got to type up her background. Its in my head, and I just need to add it to the sheet.

After having a bit of thought on Luminary, I am going to do some editing on her. New version coming up soon.

So, what are we in the super hero scene?

Newbies yet to prove themselves? Street level heroes? Real power houses? Part of a super hero league?


Also if I go the cold guy route. I'm thinking that maybe he was born to a family of scientist explorers, a large team that was sent underground to investigate "hollow earth" evidence. Even though they found amazing things, they also found many dangers. The cryo technology he uses was developed as an environmental manipulation suit. Meant to handle magma, floods, unstable walls,, and other hazards like lava monsters and mole people. But a disaster forced him to the surface. And him cleaning it up lead to him being seen as a hero.


Or something. Potentially campy enough for a super hero origin.





Though my alien idea would be more like me playing as the Predator. With lasers and stealth and hunting and stuff. The straight forward freezing stuff might be easier than jumping between a lot of abilities.

You can be new or an established hero; that is up to you. At 400 points, you guys are pretty powerful, so keep that in mind.

You will be joining into an established hero team as new members starting out, providing you access to a team base complete with labs and a danger room, and some fancy-schmancy vehicles that you may use on occasion.

If I understand it correctly. Concept comes first. Think of that, then hunt down all the abilities that best mechanically fit with your power.


Like "entangle". Sure its basically grappling. Coild be used with stretching or plants or tentacles or anything

I'm using a freeze ray, and thus I would choose entangle because it mechanically does what ice does.

How powerful? Like spider man and Dare Devil, Blade, Batman style powerful?


Or like iron man, hulk, thor, and aquaman, level of powers?

So, how exactly does one go about creating a character in Champions?
Champions is a point-based character creation system. If you don't have any of the books, I can help you out by whipping one up for you if you give me a concept to work with, or I can give you one of my own characters that I have made up. What are you looking to do?
