Now we’re getting to the good stuff. Today, we are featuring “Daddy” and “Mommy” from the Carnage Family.
We don’t have a whole new datafile for Carnage, because honestly the one that’s on page BR12 of the Breakout Mini-Event is good. We did however come up with some SFX to add to the existing datafile. Just to kick him up from a side note in an adventure, to the main antagonist.
SFX: Spread Some Chaos. When Carnage has Team or Buddy Affiliation with other members of his “family”, all heroes’ actions or reactions against Carnage generate opportunities on a 1 or 2.
SFX: Symbiote Decoy. When Carnage is stressed out, spend D8 from the doom pool and reveal that the unconscious body the heroes are looking at is one of Carnage’s victims in a mock symbiote suit.
SFX: Fueled by Insanity. Move Carnage’s Mental stress die to the doom pool, then remove the smallest die from the doom pool.
I had a lot of fun coming up with this datafile. My goal was to make her nasty and annoying, without making her over-the-top powerful.
If you want to know more about Shriek, her full bio is here.
