  • Survival d8
  • Fighting d12
  • Shooting d12
  • Piloting d6
  • Electronics d6
  • Intimidation d10
  • Code of Honor (Major): The Seljuk culture is chivalric. Honor and courage are respected above all else. Renegades who break the code are exiled, or even executed, depending on the severity of the crime. A person who stands up for what he believes in is a hero in the eyes of the Seljuk.
  • Wanted (Major): Wanted on Gemini 1 for a violation of the code, that is punishable by death. Falsely accused.
  • Loyal (Minor): Despite his situation he sticks by worthy comrades and still believes in his people.
  • Death Wish (Minor): Will stop at nothing to clear his name and restore his honor.
  • Brawny (IF): Size +1 (Size 3 total). Treat Strength as one die type higher for Encumbrance and Minimum Strength to use weapons, armor, or equipment.
  • Quick (IF): The hero may discard and redraw Action Cards of 5 or lower.
  • Fleet Footed (IF): Pace +2, increase running die one step
  • Woodsman (IF): +2 to Survival and Stealth in the wilds.

  • Improved Arcane Resistance (HJ): Arcane skills targeting the hero suffer a −4 penalty (even if cast by allies!); magical damage is reduced by 4.

  • Rabble-Rouser (V1): Once per turn, affect all foes in a Medium Blast Template with an Intimidation or Taunt Test.
  • Improved Counterattack (V4): As Counterattack, but against three failed attacks per turn.
Racial Abilities:
  • Bizarre Physiology: –4 to penalty to Healing checks, and compatible medical supplies/services require quadruple the listed price
  • Cyber Resistant: Cybernetics are incompatible with Seljuk physiology.
  • Distinctive D-Bee: The imposing monstrous appearance of Seljuk leads to prejudiced reactions from some species, incurring a –2 Persuasion penalty.
  • Jungle Natives: −4 to resist Cold Hazards, and suffer +4 damage from cold-based attacks.
  • Chivalry Culture: Seljuk start with either the Heroic or Code of Honor Hindrance for no added benefit.
  • Regeneration: May make a natural healing roll daily to recover Wounds, or Injuries once all Wounds have been healed.
  • Natural Weapons: Bite for Str+d4 damage and claw for Str+d6 damage
  • Non-Standard Build: Subtract 2 from Trait rolls when using equipment not designed for Seljuk (including weapons and vehicles). Cannot wear commonly available armor or clothing, it must be custom-designed and fitted—tripling purchase and repair costs.
  • Powerful: Start with Strength d8 and Vigor d6, raise Trait maximums accordingly.
  • Lightning Reflexes: Ignores 2 points of Multi-Action penalties each round.
  • Restricted Paths: Cannot take any Arcane Background or framework using PPE or ISP.
  • Size 2 (Normal): Seljuk run 8'–10' tall and weigh from 600–800 lbs. Their Size grants them +2 Toughness.

Re: Sa'Maku (SWADE Redux)

Post by Sa’Maku »

Sa’Maku was bred for fighting. He proved his mettle in numerous anti-supernatural operations on Gemini 2, a savage world of incredible Rift activity. He was eventually tasked to joint service in the Consortium Armed Forces during a particularly aggressive police action in the Pirate Expanse. During one raid against an asteroid base, the entire pirate force was wiped out and their stolen cargo - some seriously high value goods - went missing. The Consortium officers accused the Seljuk of working with pirates and absconding the cargo! Light years from his homeworld he faced a tribunal aboard ship and was dishonorably discharged and sent back to his homeworld. The penalty for such violation of honor would most certainly be his death.

Rather than die in dishonor, Sa’Maku orchestrated his escape from the transfer ship and fled to the Thundercloud Galaxy, determined to prove his innocence. Unfortunately, he has no idea who betrayed him or why and so he bides his time with mercenary work, keeping his past a secret and avoiding Consortium authorities.

Looks pretty good. Just putting it here in case it comes up later but by GM fiat Brawny works as per SWADE.

Also as a note, GM Fiat you qualify for Supernatural Strength if you ever wanted it.

You will need to remind me a lot about the Counterstrike. I tend to forget that edge.

Phase World - The Remorseless Game Master Bennies 5; Mission: Get Revenge on Durrack
  • +6 Players
    +1 Sidekicks (Not counting Rust Bucket who is temporary out of play)
    -2 Benny for Special Ritual & Extra Effect
    +2 Jokers in turn 1 of Big Battle
    +1 Joker again
    -1 reroll not to fly away
    -1 Reroll to hit Sa'Maku in vengeance
    -1 Reroll to damage Sa'Maku in vengeance
    -1 New Card for Debrek to go before Thissok

Nightbane Game Master Bennies 4, Murder a man at his place of business]

Code: Select all

[b][color=#BF0000]Initiative without rerolls.
I will roll 1d56 for each of your initiative cards. I do not reroll duplicates, instead there are 2 extra Joker positions.
[list][*][b]Quick rerolls 16 or less[/b]
[*][b]Quickness with a Raise rerolls 24 or less (SWD only)[/b]
[*]53, 54, 55, 56 are considered Jokers
[*]Cards divisible by 4 are considered Clubs for hindrances affected by Clubs (excepting 56 which is a joker).[/list][/color][/b]

  • 2D6 EFFECT
    2 Catastrophe: Something goes terribly wrong. The GM must decide what, but some ideas are a new and permanent Minor Hindrance, the inability to use powers for several days, or an explosion of some sort. The backlash should be thematic if possible. If the hero tampers with dark forces for his abilities, for example, he might become corrupted or summon something sinister into the world. If he’s a weird scientist the device might explode for 3d6 damage in a Medium Blast Template, or he might develop a Quirk, Phobia, or other “madness.”

    3 Backfire: The power succeeds as with a raise but affects a different target with the worst possible results. A bolt hits a random friend, boost Trait increases an enemy’s skill or attribute, etc. If there’s no likely target, he’s Stunned instead. If the power has a Duration other than Instant, it lasts its full term and can only be negated by dispel (the caster can’t voluntarily end it herself).

    4–5 Short Circuit: The power fails but the Power Points allocated to it are spent, along with an additional 1d6 Power Points.

    6–8 Stunned: The caster is Stunned (see page 106). She subtracts 2 from arcane skill rolls for the rest of the encounter (the penalty remains –2 even if she gets this result again).

    9–10 Overload: The character’s synapses crackle and overload with power. He takes 2d6 damage plus the cost of the power in Power Points, including any Power Modifiers the player declared.

    11 Fatigue: The character suffers Fatigue.

    12 Overcharge: The power draws ambient energy from the air, automatically succeeding against the target with a raise and costing the caster no Power Points!
