Dace wrote:I'm designing a Green Lantern game based around the idea of the New Guardians comic. So I wanted to get a feel for the duties or purpose of each of the corps and recommendations on additional powers (or possible adjustments) based on the individual color. So any help would be appreciated. Bear in mind I'm fairly new to the 3rd Edition rule set.
Green Lanterns - Will - basically galactic cops.
Blue Lanterns - Hope - They seem to be like the GL's only they appear to focus mostly on spreading hope and good will(?)
Star Sapphire Legion - Love - From all appearance they seem to do something similar to the GL's.
Indigo Tribe - Compassion - Not sure ... be secretive?
Sinestro Corp - Fear - Not sure what they really do either
Agent Orange - Greed - There appears to be only one of these guys and his goal seems mostly in being greedy.
Red Lanterns - Rage - Vengeance and Justice seems to be their bag of tricks.
You essentially nailed it with the Blues. They're all exactly like the Green Lanterns, but they have different focuses. They all seek to spread something around the Universe, though it's a bit inconsistent. They can also be grouped together as oppositional to one another. Green is in the middle, but here are the groups.
Green - Will, Space cops.
Blue - Hope, Goodwill, etc.
Yellow - Fear. They're just kinda jackasses. They spread fear. Basically the opposite of the Blues.
Violet - Love. They protect and foster love. They can be violently fanatical about it.
Red - Rage. They find sources of rage and avenge the causes of it. Violently.
Orange - Avarice. Just Larfleeze. He's not just greedy, he's the living EMBODIMENT of greed.
Indigo - Compassion. They take psychopaths and MAKE them feel compassion. NOTHING BUT COMPASSION. They're basically a big, mobile, ultrapowerful mind-screwy penal colony. Every single Indigo Lantern is a horrible, horrible criminal that's had his/her mind worked over.
So essentially you've got the Will folks, the awesome/douchey folks, the fanatical folks (on the extremes) and the "personality has been subsumed under a single minded goal" folks (indigo/orange.)
