Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

NAME = SHADOWCAT II
SECRET IDENTITY = KITTY PRYDE

SPECIES = MUTANT
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE HERO
CLASS = PROTECTOR
PERSONALITY = LOYAL

SIZE/HEIGHT = MEDIUM 4

LIFE = 4

MOVE = 6
RANGE = 1
ATTACK = 4
DEFENSE = 4

POINTS = 170


AIRWALKING
Before moving normally with Shadowcat, you may subtract 3 from her Move number. If you do, Shadowcat may move over water without stopping and ignores elevations when moving this turn. Shadowcat may not move more than 12 levels up or down in a single turn.

PHASE MASTERY
Shadowcat can move through all figures and obstacles such as ruins, and is never attacked when leaving an engagement. After moving Shadowcat on your turn, you may choose one figure she moved through this turn:
- If the chosen figure is a friendly figure, place it adjacent to Shadowcat. The chosen figure does not take any leaving engagement attacks.
- If the chosen figure is an opponent's figure, it rolls 1 fewer defense die when attacked by Shadowcat this turn, or 2 fewer defense dice if the chosen figure is an Android.

REACTIONARY PHASING
If Shadowcat is attacked by an opponent's figure and at least 1 skull is rolled, roll the 20-sided die, adding 6 to your roll if the attacking figure is not adjacent to Shadowcat. If you roll 12 or higher, Shadowcat takes no damage.

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

Not sure if I chimed in on this one later on in the process, but I really like where this ended up.

Make sure to post a link to the thread in the Control Room and PM the Heroes so they know the thread's started. I always forget to do that.

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

I really like where the design is at. The only change I'd like to see is the numbers on Reactionary Phasing tweaked; a 50% chance to dodge in melee seems a little too good. I'd go with triggering on a 13+ with a boost of 5 against range, personally.

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

Could always split the difference at 12. 13+ for a 4 defense 4 life character is a bit rough IMO. Especially if she's supposed to be able to stand a chance against Wolverine, as Gutudak has said she does.

I think the non-adjacent + to the roll should be higher IMO. We're going from Intangibility which can't be harmed non-adjacently, to a need of an 8 or higher. So I think we should lower that requirement a bit. Perhaps a 12 or higher, with a +6 to her roll?

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

I'd be okay with testing 12/+6 numbers and seeing how it goes.

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

Like where the design gotten to, though I do agree her Reactionary Phasing roll should probably go up, especially since you can pretty easily boost her d20 rolls with figures like Sage and Destiny.

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

Even with Magneto II, Destiny, and Sage boosting her, she'd need a 8+(35% chance she fails that roll). Not that amazing in the grand scheme of things for how much you're pouring into her IMO, as when she does get hit, she's going down quick, and she's not exactly a major offensive threat.

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

Spider-Man is 5 Life/3 Defense, dodges on a 9+, and I've seen him last for-stinkin'-ever with a run of good rolls. Given how easy it will be to boost Kitty's rolls compared to Spidey's, I definitely think she should come in a little above that.

On a whole though, you know I'm on board.

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

12/+6 for Reactionary Phasing sounds good to me. Updated the SP.

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

You are not supposed to update the SP until after the Breathing Period expires.
Looking good. The numbers will work themselves out during playtesting.

Re: The Book of Shadowcat (II) (Breathing Period)

I'd say it's a solid starting point for testing. We'll make sure to test with the likes of Magneto/Sage/Destiny to ensure it's not playing above what we're shooting for point wise. 170-200 gives her some good breathing room.

With other Mutants out there with much more prominent d20 rolls with more drastic results, I can't see her just being able to stay alive on an 8+ with all of their bonuses in effect for very long. Even if she does, her offensive threat doesn't warrant much concern from me. A potential of reducing their defense by 1(or 2 with the limited Androids) and attack of 4(5 boosted by Sage) isn't too concerning.

The fact that she can't move after avoiding like Angel, Daredevil, and Spider-Man etc. also means she won't be able to get out of range of melee attackers, so multiple attackers will still have her number in the long run. Unlike Daredevil and Spider-Man, she has no range, so she will need to stay adjacent to attack, which also puts her at more of a risk of eventually getting hit. With 4 life(1 less than Spider-Man), and 4 defense(1 less than Daredevil), I think it'll feel reasonable even at its best.
