Based on a joke I've seen on tumblr once, I created a character that is a man who died during a zombie attack, his body turned into a zombie, but his soul turned into a ghost bound to the body. Now he wonders the world trying to figure out why he is a ghost instead of simply dying.
Here in Brazil we have 3D&T, a simple system that can be used in many stories, and it's there where I've created the body and ghost of Jim Knight, the main character being the soul.
The key things the character have are the advantage Ally (body), which is basically a weaker character you control during combat, and the disadvantages Cursed, the "make your own disadvantage" (in this case, unable to stay 10 meters away from the body) and Lifelink, where every time the linked character takes damage (in this case, the body), the disadvantage owner takes the same damage as well. The body only has Lifelink to the soul, therefore he moves and drags the soul along.
I want to "translate" the character to Mutants and Masterminds 3E, but I'm having some troubles. Firstly, the main character would be, again, the soul, so the body could be a Permanent Summon or something like that. But how do I make the "can't stay away from the body" problem? And how to make the Lifelink effect on 3E as well?
Thank you for your assistance.
