Champions Now: Return of Ms. Satan!

Champions Now intrigues me because we played Champions with 4th edition back in thte day. I remember the Perez cover well. Earlier edition supplements were still around but I wasn’t system savvy enough to parse through the different editions and figure out a difference.

Champions was my first hard glimmer at gaming as a skill because using that system to its fullest as a player was a skill I didn’t have. We had a few people in the group who loved to make up characters. After making a failed super-soldier from the first World War I decided that from now on I’d just describe what I wanted and have a buddy with the chargen skills do the accounting.

I was hoping to have my character idea, Ms. Satan, ready before the kickstarter ended but I’m not sure I’ll have that ready as my notes are coming together but not there yet.

Thinking just a touch meta – I picture Ms. Satan has a pulp hero whose rights were never attained by any of the big publishers. She’s an open source  super hero.

Ms. Satan was a 1950’s librarian who dabbled in the occult. Now she’s an older woman with a rageful demon inside her as she watches her colleagues go corporate. When she turns she becomes a hulking monster with a flaming skull. In my head she inhabits a place between Jessica Jones, She-Hulk (not Byrne’s 4th wall breaking era) and Ghost Rider with maybe a touch of the Demon.

I’m figuring out the points for an occult library that allows her to know more about her enemies and some strength and such to smash things. I’ll post more about Ms. Satan once I have Champions accounting done.

One thought on “Champions Now: Return of Ms. Satan!

  1. Just today I put my box of many Champions 1 through 4 books into storage, with many fond memories of making up characters long into the night but sadly very rarely actually playing it.
    The Occult Library sounds like Find Weakness based an an Occult roll; a variable power pool that takes time in the library to change the powers (e.g. occult rituals and/or modifying her demonic powers to suit her target); and a bonus to some/all knowledge skills only when in the library.
