The X-Men

Recommended Posts

Allow me a little divertissement. Nothing official, just to show how it could be done.

The X-Men

For Revolution D100

The X-Men are a Trademark of Marvel. The version of the X-men provided here is inspired by the Claremont&Byrne stories of the 80s.

Cyclops

Scott Summers

STR 14 | CON 18 | DEX 16 | INT 15 | WIL 16 | CHA 15

Toughness 9, Might +1, Strike Rank 15, Exertion Points 38, Move 5

Attacks:
Punch 70%, SR 15, 3/2 to Att/Def, Damage 1d2+1d2
Beam 108%, SR 36, 5/- to Att/Def, Damage 10d4, Range C (25), bash (effect), stun (effect)

Skills: Athletics [Balance, Climb, Dodge, Swim, Take Cover] 74%, Close Combat [Martial Arts (Deflect, Evade)] 70%, Communication [Language: English, Command] 68%, Concentration [Willpower] 61%, Drive [Car, Motorcycle] 61%, Knowledge [Literacy] 60%, Operate [Electronics] 61%, Perception [Hearing, Vision] 61%, Pilot [Aircraft] 61%, Ranged Combat [Beam (Bash, Marksmanship, Intercept Projectiles, Fast Reaction, Stun)] 78%, Survival [First Aid, Endurance] 63%.

Powers: Project Energy 10 (the beam is equivalent to kinetic energy but does d4s of damage and not d2s).

Motivations: Leading the X-Men is my sacred duty, an honour that Xavier himself bestowed on me 70%, Will my power ever stop being a threat to my loved ones? 30%, Eternal love for Jean Grey 30%.

Notes: The Marksmanship stunt gives Cyclops a Bonus to hit with the beam. The Fast Reaction stunts allows him to treat the Project Energy power as an automatic weapon, striking with a Ranged Attack Opening Move.

Notes: this is the real Jean Grey, not the one possessed by the Phoenix Force. She lacks the Overcome Stunt, so her Dominate power suffers one Penalty.

How do you manage these super powers ? Some of them are in the Powers list but not to be found under any Skill.

Ex. Cyclope. Prohect energy 10. Is that the same as the Beam in Ranged Combat ?

 

Or for Storm:

Corrected. Everything is marked as "lightning" now, and I have clarified that Storm's powers require activation, except Flight and Absorb Lightning (and in fact, depending on how you interpret the comics/movies, even these two might require activation).

Basically, Storm's powers work like the equivalent spells/psionic powers, requiring a Concentration roll to fire a blast of energy or to envelop her in a protective field against that energy source. The difference with spells is that Range and Might are fixed and not depending on Channeling.

Phoenix and Xavier use simple psionics, as in the rules. They have a Channeling score depending on their skill and use it to determine how hard and how far they can strike. In theory, Phoenix can strike farther, or fire at multiple targets, by doing less damage.

Cyclops' beam is a Project Kinetic variant that does D4s. The stunt, as explained in the notes, allows him to fire the beam as a ranged weapon and not as a power. It works exactly like a laser beam except that it uses two of his Exertion Points instead of energy from a clip. His brother Havok fires a different type of discharges which would probably be treated like Storm's bolts, should we wish to define his character, too.

Fun write-ups.  And the powers and motivations blocks indicate how this system differs from the Big Gold Book.

My favorite X-man was Beast, at least the animated version.  In the comics he kept changing, depending who was writing.  Was he shy and lovelorn?  Brainy and pedantic?  Or a savage animal eager to rend and slay?  Was he just mishappen or furry?  Wait!  Did his fur color and coat length just change?
