Character creation is fun. Did you ever look at a comic book or movie and think “I could have made a cooler character than

that”? Well, here is your chance. This chapter offers a framework for you to create a new character from the ground up. All the
necessary information for character generation is in this section.

A new Hero starts with a certain number of points with which to purchase attributes, skills, Advantages, and so on; these are
Creation Points. Game Masters should feel free to adjust the Creation Points to the specifications of their adventures and players.
These dice are distributed among the Hero’s attributes, special abilities, and skills. They are also used to gain certain characteristics,
like Advantages or other aspects.

NOTE: Power Level one is reserved for extremely low-
level heroes and normal people. It is not recommended
for starting heroes. Maximum Power Ranks
Starting Heroes may have a maximum number of
ranks in their ability as determined by the Power Level.

Every character has an Archetype, which defines the
core qualities of their personality and gives various
bonuses during play complementing that type of
character. An Archetype also determines how your
character recovers his inner strength, or Hero Points; to
regain your mental and spiritual strength in stressful or

dangerous situations, you must act per your Archetype!
The list below gives a limited number of Archetypes,
however, don’t let it confine you; it’s only meant to help

you enhance your character. You could easily have a less
brooding Avenger or a tarnished Icon.
You do not have to select an Archetype at character
creation, but keep in mind that you then give up the
benefits until you choose one.

The Bravo adds 2D to the Aggravation Pool when she

The Icon
The Icon is the essence of the loftier ideals of humanity.
People look up to her for what she stands for. She’s the person
who tries to lead by example, putting her best foot forward
in the hopes that it will inspire humanity to do the same.
Sometimes the people around her think she’s corny and stuffy,
but it’s a small price to pay to achieve her goals!

Concept Bonus:
The Icons can inspire those that respect her times per game

equal to her PRE. The Hero must spend an action inciting the

the Icon’s group receives a number of bonus successes to their
next roll equal to one (1) plus the Effect Value of the roll.
Concept Penalty
The Icon adds 2D to the Aggravation Pool when she, through
her actions, fails to live up to the lofty ideas she espouses.

The Outsider
The Outsider is different from normal society or people…
or so he thinks, anyway. Whether hunted for real, or by
some imaginary foes, the world is a much colder place
to live than normal society, because The Outsider
realizes what’s really going on. He’s the ultimate
survivor, living by his own cunning and sharp wits.
His friends consider him a pessimist if they’re not

Concept Bonus:
Outsiders are excellent at reading a situation and
known where the cards will fall. Because Outsiders place

a high priority on self-reliance, they are also very adept at

taking care of themselves. Several times per game equal
to the Hero’s PER, the Hero may double the Skill Level
of any PER + skill.
Concept Penalty
The Outsider adds 2D to the Aggravation
Pool when she allows herself to trust those
in authority without checking all the facts
and angles.


The Protector
The Protector is the champion of an idea or place.
She might be the defender of the environment
on an island or a small community anywhere
or might devote herself to ideals like
“justice,” “purity,” etc. She fights with an
almost religious fervor when protecting

her charges, and takes her duties very
seriously. She feels personal pain if,
by her own inaction, she allows harm
to come to that which she protects.

The Rogue
No one has more secrets than the Rogue does. The

Rogue runs the borderline of a criminal, barely Heroic

character, and may have a shady past that he’s trying to
run away from or forget. The straight and narrow path
is one littered with temptation, and he must stay strong
and not falter… because sometimes the unsavory
deeds of the past come back to haunt you. Often, he’ll
stumble on that path, looking for an angle that leads to
personal gain. He’s not above using his status to help
himself. He has an absolute disdain for authority, and
will always want to do things his way. Yet with all these
personal drawbacks, he still has a sense of honor and


will stick with a friend to the end. The Warrior

Cronies may double the dice of any skill roll a number

This Archetype is not necessarily evil in the strictest

Hero at every turn. A number of times per game the
Megalomaniac may make a Hero re-roll skill rolls and
make them take the worse of the two rolls a number of
occasions per game equal to their KNO attribute.


The Nihilist rejects all moral, ethical, and social
principles, living only to hurt, annihilate, and devastate
property and people. In most cases the Nihilist cares
nothing for his own well-being and sees his eventual
demise as a fate he cannot avoid. Nihilists are generally
crazed, and bloodthirsty monsters, serial killers, and

robots programmed only to wipe out the designated
enemy. They can be cold and calculating, however.
Concept Bonus:

Meaningless of Life
The Nihilist excels at ruining what others have built. A
number of times per game equal to their PER attribute,
a Nihilist may add double their PHY or KNO (defined
when the character is created) to attack.

Note: The chart on which a player rolls depends on the value of the Hero’s Physique attribute (not the Athletics

skill). If the Hero has 4D in Physique, she rolls on the “Human” column. If she has 6D, she rolls on the “Metahuman”
column, while a Hero with 12D in Physique rolls on the “Superhuman” column.
Additionally, Heroes must roll regardless of the difficulty, because a critical failure on a Wild Die means that the
Hero failed to get a good grip on the object or that he dropped it.
These adjusted columns reflect how someone with a higher Physique can more easily lift heavy objects.
