Characters from Other Universes Discussion

Thought I'd separate the discussion from the posting of characters to make it easier for judging purposes.

Because he is. DC seem to like going OTT in a way that Marvel doesn't - or at least not nearly so often or so egregiously. The fact that I found it hard to fit everything into the version I made up above should say something too. The old DC Heroes rules aren't much help either, because things like Ascendant's Power Limit or the Drawback cap have a pretty big impact on how you can build a character.

[quote="Rhishisikk"] Some skills, such as Profession(photography) are accounted for in Spider-Man's base statistics. [/quote]

Sometimes for that stuff I've just given the character SPs of the relevant Skill equal to the relevant score. Eg for your Spiderman, 7 SPs of Profession (Photography). Cost is thus 0, but it's a helpful reminder on the character sheet that he's particularly good or interested in something.



[quote="Rhishisikk"] As Peter Parker is noted as one of the top ten minds in Marvel Earth (sometimes ranking in the top four), I really wanted to pump his INS up higher.  But - he does a lot of bone-headed things, too, so I was tempted to lower them as well. [/quote]

Yeah, I think that's one of the advantages of separating INT & WIS in traditional fantasy RPGs, but which Ascendant merges into INS.
