  • School for Character Re-Creation

    I was wondering if there was a thread to show new GMs how to recreate characters from the comics. I know there are writeups, I would really like for someone to do an in depth example of how they modeled a particular hero or villain from comics or other rpg. I realize that some writeups have notes on why they were done that way, but I still have questions. For instance, how do you determine what level the fighting stat should be vs the skill level in hand to hand?

    Thing is, it's really a matter of preference and your vision of a given character.

    Batman is an amazing fighter, but can he hit as hard as Spiderman? In a comic he'll be fighting the street level threats and Spidey will be handling the super-tier (for the most part).
    In a game where two players (or an NPC fighting the PCs) are standing by each other, there needs to be some equalizing factor otherwise the fun goes out the window...
