Build Help: Lady America


Hey guys,

I am running a SUPERS! game for some friends online and one of them wants to play Lady America, as she is a great player, I can't help but say yes.

So now I have to build her (with 25d) and I have no idea how to do a hand-to-hand specialist who has no powers and uses no weapons effectively in SUPERS!

Can anyone help?

We can help, but we need a bit more information. What type of skills would she have? A high charisma/presence, infiltration/stealth, vehicles, detective work, etc.

Would she have any devices or gadgets? Night vision goggles, flash bombs, magic lariet, etc.

Some martial arts abilities might be replicated by powers. (Nerve strike, Wuxia style moves, etc)

Is that the Royal "We" you are using there Dark Paladin? emoticon

She carries no gear, her skill set is that of a highly trained soldier/government agent (think Highly Trained SHIELD) and yes her Martial Arts could be powers, but she has no "chi" or "iron fist" magical martial arts at all.

That help focus it?

Cheers!

Re: Build Help: Lady America


Sorry Andrew, been too busy writing and haven't been on the boards! Let me take a stab at this.

Resistances: 3D each (cost 8D)
I'm assuming she's a normal at this point; that being the case, 3D is the max human potential. She can take a punch or three and stay in a super-powered brawl.

Aptitudes: (Cost 8D)
Fighting 6D (Unarmed Combat; Split Attack 1D)
Since an Aptitude can only take the best 3D in any given roll, this gives her two 3D attacks/defenses per round.
Athleticism 3D
This would be her primary defense, along with her Resistances; she could always use a Fighting roll if she's facing a crap ton of attacks!

You still have 9D to distribute among the other Apts and Advs so she could be an effective skill monkey for the team and Advantages such as Is That Your Best Shot and Dumb Luck are good choices to keep her in the fight, and holding back a few dice for Comp Dice isn't a bad idea..of course she'll land 2 CD by taking the Normal Disadvantage.

Hope that helps!

DP's offered up a pretty solid build. You would actually have 4D to still play with though(the Resistances only cost 9D, not 13D).

You are right. for some reason I keep making that mistake. Easiest fix would be to increase each resistance by 1D and the total will work out. Or use it to get more aptitudes. I could easily see her taking vehicle to represent her motorcycle. maybe a professional skill too.
