Gamma Corps stat cards

Postby Elmagnifico » Tue Nov 24, 2009 2:10 am

I've decided to jump onto the stat-card bandwagon, and just finished one of Codename: Saber, see below.

Well, for one thing, it means he has to be melee'd to die, basically. However, I didn't want to just say he was immune to ranged weapons, so I made his armor increase the further the bullet has to travel*. This simulates real modern combat armor in that it can take a bullet from a good distance, but if you put said gun right up against the plate, you'll have bits of target flying everywhere. And it's +3 to the two dice rolls, not +3 dice.

*I'm also willing to define explosives as "the attacking unit".

And that is why this is TEC reactive armor.

Your argument is flawed. Reactive armor works by exploding when it gets hit. Is this guy carrying around enough explosives to last a whole battle, he should be going up like a firecracker every time he gets hit...which will be once. Furthermore, the ingame ability of this reactive armor is so OP that its CP cost should be increase twentyfold, at least.

He pretty much IS immune to ranged weapons. By your thingy there, a figure 1 inch away has to beat a 2d6+3 which is pretty much a 3d6. A figure even 6 inches away with a short range weapon has to beat a 2d6+18, or 5d6. That's just ridiculous.

Firstly, I would put down the armor so it was +1 to armor for every 2 inches for the cost of 4 or 5CP. Also I would make it like regular armor, with a -1 to move.

Secondly, this dude doesn't even need this type of armor; he's already got 2d6, which technically by the rules Heroes shouldn't have anyway as 1d10 base armor is the max a 1" creation can have.

I guess I'm just thankful I won't ever fight you.

Heroes always have 2d6 armor. This is because they're ~*special*~



If you want a dude who's more or less invincible to ranged attacks, I would either a) do like the ninja card and give him a bonus to defending from ranged attacks, or b) make him straight up invincible to ranged attacks. Having played tons of games where you get +3 for this and -2 for that, I generally find that it's way easier and more fun to only ever use three numbers when modifying abilities: 1, 1d6, or Infinity.

I'd just shoot him with missiles as then the actual damage is from where the missile explodes not the distance traveled.

Rayhawk explained this a while back. Heroes shouldn't have it as per the rules, but they just do anyway because he said so. I was only saying that the guy already had better-than-awesome armor and there was no reason for him to have even more.

TEC just means developed by the Gamma Corps R&D department. I'll grant the ability does seem underpriced, but I'm going to keep it.

TEC reactive armor works more like the Israeli Iron Fist module, defending against smaller projectiles by firing a disruptive particle stream at incoming bullets, lasers, plasma, etc. Unfortunately, large solid objects such as boulders, missiles and grenades get through because the particle stream is too weak to break them.

*edit* I've made some changes in an attempt to balance the card, but who knows if this will placate the insatiable Fun Police?
