Character Conversion

Post by steveraceuk on Sun Jul 28, 2013 10:27 pm

I've just picked up my copy of Squadron UK again as I intend to try and convert over my original Golden Heroes characters to the new system. Originally i'd planned to write up a character conversion document although i'm not sure if that's really necessary. Seems that a list of powers then and now would be more useful. I have noticed that Immunity has gone and doesn't seem to have been directly replaced. It would appear that
Survival has taken over that role? Thoughts? I'll post one of my conversions later today when i've finished it and would be interested in your opinions on whether I could have done it better.

Sorry, took me longer than I thought and i'm stuck here without my rulebook
handy. First up is the original Golden Heroes character



Pyrotechnic

Alias: Abraham Strong

Movement: 6m Dodge Modifier: Cannot Dodge
Damage Modifier: +16 Strike Modifier: 0
Defence Class: 3 Frames: 4

HTK: 55/4
Recover: 1d6 per 1 per hour Hospitalised: 5

HTC: 57/3
Push Back:20
Recover: 1d6 per round Stag: 10 Stun: 5

Advantageous Background: Brilliant Scientist-Mechanical

Notes:
Abraham Strong was sole developer of an experimental undersea construction suit.
His employer was a large corporation with fingers in many pies, not all of them
legal. An attempt to liberate the suit from Strong's lab resulted in him
receiving a head injury when using the suit to defend himself. As a result, the
previously law abiding Strong's personality changed and he resolved to use the
suit to achieve his own twisted ends. His reluctance to injure innocents may
point to the survival of some of Strong's previous character traits." />

Now this is the SQUK 2nd edition version. You may notice a couple of changes,
specifically the character now has flight. This is because the 2nd edition rules
remove the need for a power roll for skills and the Immunity power, so I
rationalised the suit has built in thrusters which can provide a form of flight.
