Feel free to post up Doc and Nappa.

I've been a bit sick so didn't look over chars like I'd planned, but will get done on my days off. We'll be able to start the first portion of the IC thread soon too, it probably won't need fully completed characters as it's primarily a roleplaying / preliminary gathering before the bloodbath begins.

Nappa: Listen Kakarot, I've got the deal of a lifetime for you baby. It's gonna make you a star. Have you ever heard of the BROB?

Goku: Is that a new type of bacon?

Nappa: Umm, sure. But how would you like to star in the ultimate fighting tournament? If you win, you'll get three wishes. It's solid gold!

Goku: I dunno...I do like tournaments...but we already have a magic wishing dragon. And it's way easy to get the dragon balls together now. Plus, didn't you kind of kill all my friends that one time?

Nappa: Water under the bridge, Kakarot. Did I mention the free double-bacon-wiches?

Goku: I'm in!

Complications
How Do You Even Function?: Goku operates at a level of apparent stupidity and naivete that seems almost unbelievable. Clever opponents are often able to take advantage of his stupidity.
Obsession: Christmas: Goku loves Christmas to an absurd degree. Snow and other elements of Christmastime can put him off his guard to delight in his surroundings and any threats to the holiday (real or totally imagined) can drive him into a rage.
Obsession: Food : Goku loves to eat and will ignore pratically anything else for food. Insulting food, particularly bacon, is a surefire way to get on his badside.
Technological Moron: Goku is terrible at using technology and tends to wreck any vehicle he gets into. He thus has a knack for finding functions that the designer never intended however, such as the infamous Muffin Button.

No. Goku, no.
Awww...but I like that song. It has cake in it!
It's a tournament. Pick something more suitable for a fight.
Ooooh, how about "Rock the Dra..."
NO! Fine. I'll just pick the obvious one... Theme Song

Ok, a rethink occured.

So I'm not holding everyone up, I looked up so already built formulas from MDSnowman and got three options

Richard B Riddick
The Doctor
Hellboy

Not sure which one I wanna use yet, but I dont think any of them are built for 3e, so I will try to convert them to the new system and see which one works.

Now obviously it's up to you, but I'm not sure how well The Doctor would work in this kind of game. My understanding is that there'll be a lot of combat focus and his main advantages (social skills, intelligence, allies, the TARDIS, etc) wouldn't be available or terribly useful. I love the Doctor but I'm just not seeing him working twell in this kind of game. Although...he could be piloting that human robot thing from the season before last...

I've only seen sporadic Who episodes (My lady is a whovian), but on second thought, I would have to agree.

The Riddick, however, fits perfectly.

The whole family ended up spending the last week taking turns being sick, last couple days were baby's turn, and I wanted to devote more attention to the characters than that would allow (I ended up having to hold her in my arms most of last night, the poor thing. :( ).
She seems better today, so will pour through the characters tonight if all remains well.

Ugh. Sorry to hear that. Glad to hear she seems to be doing better.

Sorry it so long for me to reply. It would not let me ACTUALLY post. It had to be approved. So I gave up and didn't come back to the site after I couldn't actually figure out how to contact a moderator. I'll work on the character tonight. I do Graveyard and have a lot of down time. I'll copy and paste the rules you laid out and figure something out tonight. I may have a character or two that I can level up. Are we going with the regular power lvl limitations IE (at PL 10 your attack and damage together cannot exceed 20?)

On some thought. I may make The Predator. It wont be a ton of RP, but one of his race would really be interested in hunting and killing the most powerful beings in the galaxy. I may have to research the cannon to see about their society and such.

I hope your little girl, and the rest of your family continue to recover with a minimum of discomfort.

It occurs to me that my last character update didn't necessarily address everything mentioned in your last post regarding Merlin
jemal wrote:Hmm.. I'll let you take the first rank of fearless for a presence freebie, but not more..

Actually you know what, How about you take the 'benefit: Smart' as your second free advantage if you wish?
Cool. Its currently marked as if both ranks of fearless were from Presence with a point paid for Smart. But it should add up correctly.
You could add the 'side effect' or 'uncontrollable' flaws to a bunch of it's powers if you want that kind of a beast.. makes it unreliable and dangerous, but the cost discounts would allow you to make it a suitably scary last resort.
Is the current configuration OK? I was going more for Karnak (of the Inhumans) with poor impulse control scary, rather than powers blow up in face scary.
Alright, so that would effectively give him super-vision. I assume it would be described as some sort of spell?
I'd call it a magical talent. Anything that hoses magic would certainly hose it and Merlin in general. But he doesn't cast it per se, since its an ongoing sense. Some of the lore around Merlin asserts that, while the infernal half of his parentage gave him a talent for magic, it was being baptized that gave him the gift of prophecy. I'm not sure that I want to root this version of him in a starkly Christian milieu. But I do see his 'super-vision' as essentially prophetic vision, seeing a moment into the future with almost perfect clarity. He can, however, cast a spell to expand that vision over a large area.

Real world I hope? mythological beasts would be a lot of extra power.
Real world. And other than being able to shrink a bit to better mimic harmless woodland critters, this particular morph is just cosmetic.
Another thing you could try would be to change the magical awareness to vision based detect magic, so he essentially 'sees' magic.
Very cool; added to the spell version.

voidrazor wrote:Senses: Senses 4 (Accurate: Choose Sense, Acute: Choose Sense, Analytical: Choose Sense)
Interesting.. so far he has super vision, magical awareness, and super scent?
Sort of. In human form, he has a wide array senses, but essentially all keyed to vision. In dragon form, his enhanced olfactory sense is his primary way of perceiving the world. In cambion form he can detect and analyze weaknesses in objects and people.

Just my two cents, but in my experience on these boards, having a character thats fun to RP is way more important to enjoyment than anything else. Even if the character is primarily a combatant, you want something to play off of other characters and vice versa. That way you don't fall into the trap of "I have nothing to add here." That said, I think a Predator is a cool character to use and assuming there's a universal translator effect in place in the tournament, he could be the "proud warrior race guy" ala Vegeta, Worf, etc. After all, the titular Predator taunted Arnold despite the language barrier and while I hate to mention AvP, that did show Predators working with someone that impressed them.
