About

“I think their predominant color was a greyish-green, though they had white bellies. They were mostly shiny and slippery, but the ridges of their backs were scaly. Their forms vaguely suggested the anthropoid, while their heads were the heads of fish, with prodigious bulging eyes that never closed. At the sides of their necks were palpitating gills, and their long paws were webbed. They hopped irregularly, sometimes on two legs and sometimes on four. I was somehow glad that they had no more than four limbs. Their croaking, baying voices, clearly used for articulate speech, held all the dark shades of expression which their staring faces lacked ... They were the blasphemous fish-frogs of the nameless design—living and horrible.”

Name: Ion

Ion used to be an athlete, and a member of the national soccer (football) team. Married to the world's leading innovator in sustainable electricity, Samuel Rees, she was used to being in the spotlight. But all of that attention brought her beloved Samuel an early demise. He was working on a new technology said to be twice as efficient at producing energy as anything else the world had ever seen, but his rivals wanted it first. He was murdered in cold blood, his research stolen. In the confrontation, a stray bullet impacted a nearby test reactor, and when Ion finally found Samuel breathing his last breaths, the reactor exploded, electrifying Ion's entire body.

She gained powers that allow her to convert her body into an electric current, however, she can only maintain the form as long as she is moving through or towards some sort of conductor and choosing it's direction can prove to be difficult at times.

About

Name: Tork

Tork was raised as part of a select group of Turtoids that were chosen to protect Seal of Haaf, an artifact deep in the ocean that was said to protect the oceans from the monsters that lurked beyond it's depths. But Tork doubted it's power and, when he was old enough, he left to find his own path. Years later, he heard news of many attacks from strange sea creatures and he feared the worst.

Radcliff (or Rad for short) used to be a celebrity among wizards and common folk alike. Everyone aspired to be as amazing as Radcliff: The Great, but with all of his fame he also attracted those who wished to abuse it. He was ambushed by a group of powerful magic users. In the fray, his hands were damaged badly, limiting his magical abilities even to this day. The attackers ran off and began impersonating him, no doubt profiting from his fame. Now, as Rad relearns to use magic with his crippled hands, he desires to expose his doppelganger(s) and reclaim his title as Radcliff: The Great.

Aspects

  • "I'm Radcliff: The Great. I swear!"
  • Mangled hands: my reminder of the past
  • Persistent seeker of truth
  • Trained at the Wandering College
  • Never had time for love

Skills

Great (+4): Lore
Good (+3): Crafts, Shoot
Fair (+2): Deceive, Stealth, Will
Average (+1): Resources, Provoke, Athletics, Burglary

Stunts

Energy Shield: You may defend with Crafts instead of Athletics to defend against ranged attacks whenever you can justify quickly creating a shield of magical energy to deflect the attack.

Elementalist: +2 to Shoot when attacking an opponent particularly susceptible to the element you are throwing at them (such as Lightning against a target that is wet, or Fire against a target wearing something especially flammable).

I’ve Read about That!: You’ve read hundreds—if not thousands—of books on a wide variety of topics. You can spend a fate point to use Lore in place of any other skill for one roll or exchange, provided you can justify having read about the action you’re attempting.

Stunts

Death Discipline. You have mastered control over death and the dead. You can shoot blasts of green necrotic energy, weaken your enemies, and animate the dead—although this doesn't quite make them “living” again.

Life Drain. When you deal stress to a target, you may choose to suck out some of it's life force, making that stress box stay filled for the rest of the session (like a mild consequence). You may only do this once per target and after you have done it to a target, each subsequent use requires you to spend a Fate Point or free invoke.

Reanimator. When you animate something, your animation now starts with one skill at Average (+1) and a 1-point stress box. You can also exchange any free invokes received for both a skill at Average (+1) and a 1- point stress box for your animated being. If an animated being has multiple skills at Average (+1), they can be combined to increase their power, as can stress boxes. So, if you exchange two free invokes, you can receive one Skill at Fair (+2) or two skills at Average (+1), along with one 2-point stress box or two 1- point stress boxes.

Scene Ideas

  1. The adventurers are searching for a macguffin that is at the top of a cliff. The wyverns may have even stolen the macguffin and put it up there. The top of the cliff is where the wyverns roost. The heroes must scale the cliff while fending off the wyverns.
  2. To reach their desired destination, the adventurers must cross a wyvern breeding ground. Hundreds of towering rock formations are scattered in the large canyon between two cliffs (like Wullingyuan Canyon in China). Wyverns fly to and fro below, almost like a makeshift transportation system ;). The heroes must get to the other side of the canyon to reach their destination.
  3. While riding on an air ship, sky pirates attack and they are riding well-trained wyverns!
