Origins

There are five categories of origins in the game. They determine what enhancements you can use in the game, and which contacts will become available to you during the course of the game. The five categories are listed below.

Science

The hero received his powers either through purposeful scientific inquiry or through some accident gone awry. The hero might not understand the forces that bestowed his super powers; all he does understand is that nothing is the same anymore.

Enhancements: Training, Invention, Genetic Alteration, and Experiment.

Mutation

The Mutant was born with his powers. His innate abilities appeared either at birth or puberty. A rare few did not develop until adulthood. These powers set the mutant apart from the rest of mankind; they are capable of far more than any normal human being. Mutants are sometimes feared for their strange talents, but are more often admired by the public at large.

Enhancements: Training, Genetic Alteration, Focus, and Secondary Mutation.

Magic

The hero receives his super powers from a magical source. These abilities might derive from a mystical artifact that the hero has gained over the years – or perhaps the hero has mastered numerous spells that provide him with superhuman gifts.

Enhancements: Training, Focus, Relic, and Dimensional Entity.

Technology

A technological hero uses gadgets to battle the forces of evil. No one else has been able to duplicate the amazing technology that lies behind these gadgets. This hero need not be a brilliant inventor; he can also be a normal guy who’s received these gizmos from some benefactor.

Enhancements: Training, Gadget, Invention, and Cybernetic.

Natural

The hero isn’t‘super’ at all; his amazing talents derive from intense training and innate abilities. The hero might have been guided since birth to become the physical specimen that he is, or perhaps some tragedy has driven him to seek perfection.

Enhancements: Training, Relic, Gadget, and Technique.

Archetypes

Archetypes determine the character’s role in the game. While it is possible to deviate from an archetype slightly, it is perhaps the most important choice you will make in character creation.

Blaster

The Blaster is an offensive juggernaut. This hero can deal a ton of damage from a distance. But the Blaster must be careful, because he’s somewhat fragile compared to other heroes. The Blaster can’t stand toe to toe with most opponents at melee for long. His best defense is a great offense!

Hit Points: Low

Damage: High

Primary Power Set: Ranged

Secondary Power Set: Support

Controller

The Controller is at the same time the weakest and yet the most powerful of the archetypes. The Controller has few offensive attacks and possesses the fewest hit points. But the Controller has access

to a range of powers and abilities that no one else does. Armed with these powers, a Controller can

affect the behavior of villains, from freezing them in place, to putting them to sleep, to routing them away. Armed with such abilities, the Controller is the backbone for any super group, but the Controller depends upon their teammates for protection.

Hit Points: Low

Damage: Low

Primary Power Set: Control

Secondary Power Set: Buff

Defender

The Defender tends to help his allies, and attack his foes,from a distance. The Defender excels at powers that assist friends, but can also hinder his enemies. The Defender is able to attack at quite a range, however, the Defender is not built for hand to hand. He might be able to dodge a few attacks, but the Defender won’t last for long.

Hit Points: Low

Damage: Medium

Primary Power Set: Buff

Secondary Power Set: Ranged

Scrapper

The Scrapper is a fierce melee combatant. In hand to hand, no other hero can compare. But the Scrapper is not as resilient as the Tanker, and might find himself in a little trouble if he heedlessly wades into combat. The Scrapper’s aptitude for melee is countered by a total lack of long distance attacks. That doesn’t bother the Scrapper, he prefers to be up close and personal.

Hit Points: Medium

Damage: High

Primary Power Set: Melee

Secondary Power Set: Defense

Tanker

The Tanker can take it and dish it out all at once. The Tanker primarily can absorb vast amounts of damage, and hold his own in a fist fight. But the Tanker lacks any long range punch. The Tanker would prefer to just charge straight ahead anyway.

Hit Points: High

Damage: Medium

Primary Power Set: Defense

Secondary Power Set: Melee

Blaster

Enhancements

Enhancement Slots

Each power starts with one Enhancement slot. As the character gains levels, additional Enhancement slots can be allocated, to a maximum of six for a single power. Characters receive 2 enhancement slots at every odd level from levels 3 to 29. Afterwards, they receive 3 enhancement slots at each of the following levels – 31, 33, 34, 36, 37, 39, 40, 42, 43, 45, 46, 48, and 50.

Enhancement Levels

Enhancements come in three varieties – training, dual-origin, and single- origin.

Dual-origin enhancements are twice as powerful as training enhancements, and single-origin enhancements are twice as powerful as dual-origin enhancements. Relative power levels for enhancements would be 10%, 20%, and 40% power increases for green (level +3) enhancements, and 6%, 12%, and 24% power increases for yellow (level –3) enhancements. However, the specific effect varies by the stat affected by the enhancement.

Each Enhancement has a level, which determines who can use them. Any character can use an enhancement within three levels of their Combat Level. Enhancements greater than the character’s level are Green, and provide the best effect. Enhancements that are equal to the character’s level are Blue, and are the baseline for the figures given below. Enhancements that are lower than the character’s level are Yellow, and have a reduced effect. Enhancements outside the three-level range are Red, and provide no bonus to the character.

Regardless of color, a dual-origin enhancement is always better than a training (generic) enhancement, and single-origin enhancements are always better than dual-origin enhancements (unless they are Red, and thus unusable).

Enhancements that increase a power use a simple multiplier (so two enhancements that add 20% each increase the power’s effectiveness from 100% to 140%).

Enhancements that reduce an aspect of a power (such as recharge time) are a divider. The formula is recharge time divided by 1+x, with every 10% translating into 0.1 for x. For example, 5 enhancements that add 20% each would reduce the recharge time of a power by 50% (recharge time divided by 1+1, or recharge/2).

Enhancement Drop Percentages

Enhancements drop (are acquired from the enemy) based on the level of your foe. Lieutenants and Bosses drop enhancements based on their true level, but have a higher chance of a drop than minions. The default drop is a training enhancement, but dual-origin and single-origin enhancements become available at higher levels. Some foes drop specific categories of enhancements – for example, the Tsoo drop Focusing Devices (mutant/magic origins) at higher levels.

Generics that drop from level 1 to 19 will be Villain Level, VL-1, or VL-2.

Generics that drop from level 20 to 29 will be Villain Level, VL+1, or VL-1.

Generics that drop from level 30 to 40 will be Villain Level, VL+1, or VL+2.

Dual Origins that drop from level 15 to 29 will be Villain Level, VL-1, or VL-2.

Dual Origins that drop from level 30 to 40 will be Villain Level, VL+1, or VL-1.

Single Origins will always be Villain Level, VL-1 or VL-2.

Training (Generic) Enhancements drop exclusively for foes of levels 1 to 14.

Level 15 to 19 foes have a very rare chance (roughly 1 in 200) of dropping a dual-origin enhancement.

Level 20 to 24 foes occasionally drop (roughly 1 in 4) dual-origin enhancements.

Level 25 to 29 foes occasionally drop dual-origin enhancements (same as level 20 to 24), but

also have a very rare (roughly 1 in 200) chance of dropping a single-origin enhancement.

Level 30 to 40 occasionally drop (1 in 4) a dual origin enhancement and occasionally drop (1

in 4) a single-origin enhancements. This means that these foes drop training enhancements

roughly half the time, with the other half having an equal chance of a dual-origin or single‑

origin enhancement.
