Item Power Sets: Life Model Decoy, Nick Fury-Issued Kree Tech Armor, Failsafe

Three Item Power sets today! One can be used for any campaign, the other two… well, they’re a bit more Secret War Event specific. We hope you enjoy.

The heroes should all be given Nick Fury-Issued Kree Tech Armor upon arrival in Latveria, and shouldn’t know the details in Nick Fury’s Failsafe. Their characters have no idea their suits even know there’s a failsafe in them!

While the comics simply stated: “Everyone lost their memories. Nick Fury did it. Don’t ask how,” we decided that it made sense that Fury gave them these suits, and installed memory wipes in them. Makes for an easy memory wipe.

    Yep, we know that the Failsafe should be “affected” not “effected”. Will be correcting that this afternoon.

      Also, heroes playing the SW event should not read the failsafe item….

    I love how you filled in the blanks as regards the, uh, blanks in their memories.

    I always thought the costumes in Secret Wars were cool and it is a shame we didn’t see more of them. A really great idea to include them as a Item Power set.

    How would someone who was using Nick Fury as a watcher character use the Failsafe? Watcher characters have no pp to spend. Do we just award the pp, do we also lose d6 per hero, must we spend 2d12 since we are essentially ending that scene? I don’t want to run out of dice in the doom pool right before the stop the bomb scene.

      I would offer the 2d12 option.
