For this year’s League of Extraordinary Felines game at Big Bad Con, I am looking to switch systems. While I really like M&M, I find it difficult to teach and run in a four hour timeslot, so I am looking for something easier.
My first attempt at doing the game with the same characters in a different system is “Marvel Heroic Roleplaying”. I just finished taking a run at all the characters so I thought I would put them up here for perusal and critique.
A few notes on the design:
Every character has the “Feline” powerset, which consists of six powers. Generally, three of them are at d6 and three of them are at d8, though in a couple of instances I have reduced one down to a d4 to boost another to d10 (could have boosted a d6 to a d8 instead, but it never worked out that way.)
Almost every character has a second powerset with three powers, normally rated at d8, though in some cases I dropped one d8 to a d6 and improved another power to d10. In cog cat’s case I gave the character 1d10 and a bunch of d6s for extra powers.
Each powerset got one SFX and one limitation. There were two reasons for this – the first was because the characters are supposed to be closer to super agents than superheroes, and the second was because the character sheet template would have required me to write in 6-point font if I used more than one.
Specialties either went for 1d10 Master and 1d8 Expert or three 1d8 Expert specialties.
Because I want one of the issues of the game to be infighting amongst the League*, pretty much everyone has some sort of milestone that brings them into conflict with others in one way or another. There will be a couple of milestones pertaining to the adventure as well, so the conflict averse may dump their more contentious milestones in favor of something more story driven if they want.
Because I had requests from Tabitha Twitchet’s players to make the character less complicated, I evolved the Cog Suit so she can be the League’s equivalent of Iron Man. I also added wings to the Dinah picture this year.
So – here they are:
