Well, Singularity, Jager, and myself were discussing this in the chatroom so we decided that an NPC thread might be a good idea. I didn't notice any policy stating we couldn't so here we go.

Gotta game tonight? Need a quick trouble maker, or fresh face?

The format will be simplified, I'm not gonna put every ability where it belongs under it's attribute. NPCs I create are not always freshly made using standard character creation rules, so don't bother adding up the dots. Obviously they should still be canon.

The Onslaught Battle Armor:

Designer: Jericho Drumm

Armor exterior Dimensions:

Height (overall): 80 in.

Width (overall): 36 in.

Width (short axis): 23 in.

Weight: 240 lbs.

Quantum Pool: 25

Armor composition (Armor &#9679;&#9679;&#9679;&#9679;):

Surface/primary Layer: Molecularly aligned crystallized vanadium over a base of titanium nitride.

Secondary Layer: Comprised of various thermoelectric generators, temperature insulators and regulators.

Tertiary Layer: Consists of two independent, 'crimped' armature electric motors that are aligned at right angles to each other, which can simulate human musculature movement.

Special Features: Each layer possesses integrated communication, power-handling and control circuitry - with regions, which contain certain large area specializations, such as the simulation of a specific muscle.

Armor Articulation Motivation (Mega Strength &#9679;&#9679;&#9679;&#9679;):

Musculature Enhancement: The armor enables its wearer to lift/press approximately 50 tons under standard operating conditions.

Limitations: When directly tapping a sufficiently potent power source, the armor can be boosted to enable Onslaught to lift in excess of 100 tons for several seconds at the risk of having a total system seize-up.

Power Supply:

Type: High-density storage battery, AC/DC electricity.

Primary: Beta particle generator, creating constant current from passing beta particles that continually bombard the Earth.

Secondary: Solar power converters, regrouped in microscopic ridges for improved collection efficiency, arrayed on shoulders and headpiece. This allows the armor to restore 6 quantum points every 30 minutes.

Tertiary (back-up): Increased efficiency of conversion of electric field potentials into usable electricity.

Armor System Controls:

Type: Automatic, computerized, body motion following.

Sub-Systems: Local networks of muscle groups and high-density computers, which control large scale movements such as walking.

Special Features: Armor is comprised of finely tessellated mail, which can minimize sudden compressions, such as a blow, by racially dissipating the energy throughout the suit.

Articulation Seals/reinforcement: All magnetic. Due to microscopic construction, seal topology allows a 4.5-inch diameter wrist cuff (for example) to have a practical circumference of 12 inches. This allows for a greater area over which a magnetic seal can be affected.

Life Support:

Range: High altitude to deep water: 130,000 feet above to 1,800 feet below sea level.

Air Supply Duration: 4 hours

Pressure: Normal atmosphere (14.7 pounds per square inch) maintained internally over a wide range of external pressures.

Temperature: 73° Fahrenheit internal, from -185° F to 2,500° F internal, from 2,500° to 15,000° F external.

Environment Design Program (Enhancement: Adaptability):

Type: Full spectrum chemical, biological, nuclear environment

Range: Two months on filtered external air

Exposure: Low-level radiation over 2 month period; suit can tolerate short periods of high radiation by stepping up magnetic beam generator's activity

Propulsion Systems:

Type (Flight &#9679;&#9679;&#9679;): Electric powered turbines in boots and jet pack.

Maximum Speed (Hypermovement (Flight) &#9679;&#9679;&#9679;): 960 mph

Life Capacity: Normal flight configuration 3,200 lbs. High thrust: 5,300 lbs.

Fuel: Solar energy converted to electricity to power exceptionally efficient turbines.

Weapon Sub-Systems:


Primary (Quantum Bolt &#9679;&#9679;&#9679;): Quantum Rays

Description: The quantum rays are a stream of highly charged subatomic particles, destabilizing the atoms of the target and creating a localized fission reaction.

Range: 105 meters

Damage: [8] +12 dice of lethal damage.

Secondary (Quantum Bolt &#9679;&#9679;): Particle Beam

Description: The particle beam projects a strong stream of protons, neutrons, or alpha particles at the target; each particle is accelerated to near light-speed.

Range: 90 meters

Damage: [4] +8 dice of lethal damage

Tertiary (Gravitic Blast &#9679;&#9679;): Mass Pulsar Blasts

Description: This device utilizes gravitic technology to “charge” a small bit of matter with incredible gravitational energy, then hurls it at the target, where it’s increased gravitational pull causes it to slam into the target like a wrecking ball.

Range: 60 meters

Damage: [8] +6 dice of bashing damage.


Primary (Force Field &#9679;&#9679;&#9679;): Energy Shield

Description: Laser-absorption grid generated by armor to convert incoming energy source into stored power or to create power feedback to the offensive source. This protection is limited to only energy based attacks. If any attack fails to do damage, it restores one quantum point to the armor.

Protection Provided: 4B/4L +2B/2L for each success rolled.

Dice Pool: 6

Secondary (EMP &#9679;&#9679;): Electromagnetic pulse (E.M.P.)

Description: Energy-dampening field generated by armor. For a six-minute period, the E.M.P. disrupts all energy sources within a 50-yard radius of the armor (a small solar back-up, shielded from the E.M.P., allows armor's life-support to continue during this time at minimal function).

Dice Pool: 5

Ladies an gentleman I give you "Summer Solstice" a Nova who is cursed by the very changing of the seasons. She is truly to hot handle and to cold to hold.

Real Name: Summer Ramirez

Nicknames: None

Occupations: Student

Legal Status: No criminal record

Identity: Public

Aliases: Summer Solstice

Place of Birth: Manhattan, New York

Age: 22

Marital Status: Single

Known Relatives: Juan Ramirez (father), Solana Ramirez (mother-deceased)

Group Affiliation: None

Base of Operations: Her apartment, on small Manhatan Island

Eruption: Unknown

Height: 5 foot 7 inches

Weight: 155 lbs.

Eyes: Depending on mood or season - Mahogany Red or Ice Blue.

Hair: Blonde, straight and short.

Distinguishing Marks: None

Strength Level: The same level as a normal baseline who engages in intensive regular exercise.

Known Quantum Powers: Bodymorphing into fire and ice elementals. Each form is capaple of defending itself with a barrage of either hurled flame or shards of ice. If backed into a corner Summer Solstice had shown to be able to amplify these blasts into a projectile of incredible heat and flame, or a blast of pure cold that freezes most people or objects solid. Her power seems based on seasonal cycles. Mood and personality also affected by those cycles.

Abilities/Special Skills: Summer’s training has included basic survival skills (she likes camping), hand to hand combat techniques (self-defense courses) and small arms training (her Dad felt that if you lived in Manhattan, you should know how to protect yourself).

Weapons Used: None

Personality: Due to the dual nature of her powers and her personality she is not the easiest person to be around. One minute she could be cold and calculating and the next headstrong and daredevilish.

Personal Interests: Summer enjoys all the things a typical college girl does, shopping, videogames, avoiding her class work, and partying.

Quantum: &#9679;&#9679;&#9679;&#9679;

Quantum Pool: 37

Taint: &#9679;&#9679;&#9679;&#9679;

Aberrations: Bipolar Disorder: Summer's mood and personality are affected by the changing of the seasons. Every 6 months, usually around June and December, Summer's power will shift and fluctuate dorming down the part of her quantum sinature that has control of a given suite of abilities. During the summer solstice she has her fire abilities and during the winter solstice she has her ice abilities. This means that any quantum power with an opposing descriptor (Ice, Fire)cannot be used during that time. ST may deem it appropriate to open a suite due to her mood, since her attitude and personality are aslo affected at these times.

Sudevi Tendulkar, like her more famous countrywoman Pratima ‘Splash’ Basham, is an Indian nova who has elected to join Team Tomorrow instead of being worshipped in the Subcontinent. Beyond her astonishing good looks, she has incredibly long, strong black hair that can act as armor, extra limbs and whips if she so chooses, giving her the handle of Nightsilk.

With her soothing presence and gentle nature, Nightsilk often finds herself as a teacher for new novas, especially the easily frightened or very young. However, she can be a stern taskmaster, and rarely forgives those who break her trust.

Hannah Moss was once legally blind without her prescription lenses. Throw in the fact that she was a geek, and she was the perfect prey for jocks, teen queens and other high school tormenters. One day she erupted after her glasses were broken by a bully, gaining a variety of visually-based powers. She completed high school and joined Team Tomorrow as Focus shortly thereafter.

She is currently on medical leave due to a tangle with DeVries Elites in Kashmir.
