The ring design is a mish mash of Taliesin's Qwardian Power Ring and the example from Instant Hero. Here are some notes pertaining to the Ring's design from Taliesin's own 2ed thread.
Taliesin wrote:Instill Great Fear: Psyche Break is a version of Power Loss from the Mecha & Manga sourcebook, requiring a Wisdom check against DC15 to achieve the correct state of mind (in this case, Fear or fearsomeness) in order to use the ring. A Sinestro Corpsman buys off this drawback with the Instill Great Fear Benefit, which costs two ranks—one to buy down the Intensity, one to buy off the Frequency. Non-Lanterns may to use the ring, albeit with the requirement of overcoming the Psyche Break either through the Wisdom check or using Extra Effort to temporarily buy off the Drawback.
Power Battery: The power ring carries a charge that usually lasts about 24 hours with typical use. This is the Power Loss Drawback. The ring may be recharged through its power battery, which channels fear from the Central Power Battery on Qward. The power battery is represented by the Key Drawback, is hard to lose and easily accessible through a pocket dimension linked to the power ring.
... I created the Hyperspace power feat for Space Travel, which is basically built along the lines of Datalink’s Cyberspace or Shrinking’s Microverse. The ring usually provides travel at lightspeed in space but also allows access to designated wormholes for faster-than-light travel. The location and destination of these wormholes is under the GM’s control.
Warren is a member of the Sinestro Corps and may be called upon the Corps in a dimension where they operate. Or fellow Corpsmen stranded in the Terminious and in need of aid.Motivation:
Warren feels it is his duty, as an intergalactic peacekeeper, to bring order and stability to the world around him. The lawless must be made lawful and social chaos must be given direction. Usually this ends up being through force and fear if words will not work.Enemy:
Green Lanterns. The Sinestro Corps has a long history of bad blood with them.Relationship:
Shal-koran, Warrens former mentor turned lover.BACKGROUND:
As a young man living in the Coalition, a North American collective of city states on his Earth, Warren entered the military out of high school seeking direction. The Coalition was a different place in his world. All of North America was barren and had become one giant windy dust bowel. Everyone blamed the aliens. Refugees that came to Earth escaping the tragedy of their own world's becoming uninhabitable due to their star's death. They brought with them hunger, disease, and a wasting of the land. It didn't matter that all of this was a result of the Coalition's misuse of the technology the alien refugees shared in return for citizenship.
Having gained a technological superiority over the other nations of the world, and lacking resources, the leaders of the Coalition decided taking it from other countries was their best option. The nations of the Easter Alliance were seen as vulnerable, and targeted. That's where Warren was sent. He spent years traveling, fighting, protecting, and killing. One day, support stopped coming. The messages, orders, and war propaganda continued for a time. But they stopped eventually. Something happened back home and no one heard a word from Coalition Command.
Warren and his comrades were left fighting a war they weren't sure existed anymore. But they had to fight. Stopping meant they'd have to surrender, and surrender meant death. In order to survive in the foreign, hostile land, Warren had to become a monster. That's when the ring found him.
He was alone. Resorting to terrorizing cities with explosives, and raiding armories for supplies. One night a golden light came from the sky and knocked him off his feet. The ring slid onto his finger and ... took him away. It was a relief, really. Warren had been on borrowed time for about a month. Sooner or later he would have gotten caught or killed.
Some time later Warren found himself on Qward. There he trained for his new role and purpose as a member of the Sinestro Corps. Compared to the corruption of his homeland, Sinestro's vision was a dream. After his initial training Warren patrolled the spaceways with a senior member of the Corps, Shal-koran. In time their bond would grow and turn romantic. But duty kept them apart.
When Warren began patrolling his own sector alone, he had a shaky start. He wasn't exactly versed in alien cultures and it took a while for him to get use to employing his ring's A.I. rather than relying on his own knowledge and skills. In time he started installing security agencies on various worlds to improve their stability, and backed them up with 'confiscated' technology. It was all practice for when he returned home, to Earth.
But his homecoming wasn't what Warren expected. The world was under siege by Omega and his forces. Warren alerted his fellow Corpsmen, but those who arrived in time to aid were too few. Shal-koran was there though, and she along with Warren were among the few to survive the assault. In the Terminus Warren and Shal-koran were forced to split up. Or rather, she forced Warren to take one route while she lead forces chasing them in another direction.
Since then Warren and Shal-koran have discovered other Corpsmen in the Terminus. Though few, they have endeavored to carry on their duties while organizing resistance against Omega's forces. Much like in their home dimension, they are forced apart by their responsibilities.
