Hero Datafile: Karnak

Have you been reading Karnak? It’s one of Marvel’s best series right now. Really top-notch stuff. I was excited to create Karnak here once I realized we didn’t have a datafile for him. I hope you enjoy.

    Didn’t know muc about him, but that’s a pretty neat set. He would be hard to fight one-on-one. Probably frustrate the shit out of my players! LOL!

    Off-topic (Kinda): PLEASE! Can somebody do a file for Tempus (Eva Bell)?!

      You know what? Sure, I’ll give it a go =)

      I’m writing up a bunch for a new Event I’m planning to run, so I’m in a decent headspace for it – I’ll put something up in this comment thread over the next few days.

        Did I say this weekend? I meant right now =)

        Not sure about the affiliations and I’m hopeless with creating milestones, so you’re on your own there. She strikes me as a tough character to play, because her offensive powers are super limited – she can’t inflict stress, only complications.

        Well. Let me know what you think, and enjoy! =)

        Real Name: Eva Bell (secret)
        Solo 6, Buddy 8, Team 10
        1) Aussie Punk
        2) Aspiring Superhero
        3) (Mostly) Level-Headed
        Power Set: Temporal Distortion Field
        Time Bubble d10
        SFX: Versatile. Split Time Bubble into 2d8 or 3d6.
        SFX: Took Down The Avengers Without Lifting A Finger. Step up or double Time Bubble (or spend 1PP to do both) for one action. If the action fails, add a die to the doom pool equal to the normal rating of Time Bubble.
        SFX: Area Attack. Add a d8 and keep an additional effect die for each additional target.
        SFX: Reactive Power. Spend 1PP to add Time Bubble to another character’s dice pool before rolling. If that character takes physical stress, take d6 mental stress.
        Limit: Conscious Activation. While stressed out, asleep or unconscious, shutdown Temporal Distortion Field. Recover Temporal Distortion Field when you recover that stress or wake up. If you take mental trauma, shutdown Temporal Distortion Field until you recover that trauma.
        Limit: Mutant. When affected by mutant-specific complications and tech, earn 1PP.

    I would replace “Weak Point Detection” with Superhuman Senses. The SFX should just upgrade weak point related assets.
