Re: Fourth World Workshop (New Gods/Apokolips)

So I've had Event Darkseid germinating in my brain for a while and figured, hey, should probably write something up.

-----

NAME = DARKSEID
SECRET IDENTITY = UXAS

SPECIES = NEW GOD
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE HERO
CLASS = CONQUEROR
PERSONALITY = ABSOLUTIST

SIZE/HEIGHT = LARGE 7

LIFE = 13

MOVE = 4
RANGE = 1
ATTACK = 8
DEFENSE = 7

POINTS = 900

ANTI-LIFE EQUATION

All other figures subtract 1 from their Attack and Defense numbers. At the end of each round, destroy all wounded Unique Heroes with only 1 Life remaining.

"DARKSEID IS."
If a special power would change Darkseid's name, secret identity, race, class, personality, size, or height, would alter his Life, Move, Range, Attack, or Defense numbers, or would negate any special power on this card, you may ignore that special power.

OMEGA BEAMS
Once per round, instead of taking a turn with Darkseid, if he is not engaged,, you may choose a figure within 6 spaces. Roll the 20-sided die, subtracting X from the roll, where X is the chosen figure's Life number. If you roll 6 or higher, at the end of the round, destroy the chosen figure. If you roll 16 or higher, immediately destroy the chosen figure.

SUPER STRENGTH
FLYING

It's essentially the Darkseid we already have on steroids. Intimidating Presence? The whole universe is diminished by the Anti-Life Equation. Omega Beam special attack, if you inflict a wound? Nope, he can just zap people out of existence, no muss, no fuss.

And then there's Darkseid Is, which plays with one thing I've always found fascinating about the New Gods - they're immutable. There's only one Apokolips in the whole multiverse (well, one "real" version - the rest are just shadowy imitations), and only one Darkseid. He cannot be changed, or killed, or diminished. He simply... is. Is it super relevant for an Event Hero, which are already immune to most things that would change any of that listed stuff? Not really. But it's cool.

I figure the final point cost could be tweaked along with his Life number which, as an immortal invulnerable god, is pretty negotiable. I'd want him to clock in under a thousand, but not too far behind, and we don't have any Event Heroes at 900 so yeah.
