An R.C.C. for the Beyond the Supernatural,
Heroes Unlimited and Nightspawn role playing game's.
Background: In the world of Nightspawn Brachens are a race of
human/demon hybrids created long ago, their true origins are lost, but
it is known that Brachens can breed with other Brachens or humans. Brachen
demons are suitable as player characters.
Appearance: Brachen demons have two forms. One form is completely
human, and the second has green skin and red eyes, with rows of blue
spikes on the face and necks.
Note: In order to create a Brachen character you need a copy of
Heroes Unlimited Revised Second Edition.
Making a Heroes Unlimited style
Details: The Brachen demons represented here is loosely based on the
characters from the Angel television series, with allowances made for
fitting them into the rules for Heroes Unlimited characters.
The Extraordinary Physical Endurance ability grants them a high amount
of hit points and S.D.C., as well as the ability to continue physical
activity long after normal humans would have tired out. They also get a
bonus to save against magic spells. Add 1D6+5 to P.E., 4D4x10 to S.D.C.
and 3D6 to hit points. Add an additional 1D4 per level to hit points.
Fatigues at half the normal rate as a human.
The Extraordinary Physical Strength ability grants them at P.S. of 20+2D6,
if already above 20 then add 2D6+6 instead.
The Shapechanger (minor) ability grants them the ability to assume a
single humanoid form. In their case that form is that of a normal human
being. When in human form they do not gain any benefit from their other
Brachen demons played in Nightspawn or Rifts should be allowed to choose
from most O.C.C.'s available to humans, except any class that grants psychic
powers or super abilities. They can learn magic.
The Brachen demon racial character class is suited for Nightspawn and Beyond the
Supernatural role playing game's. Brachen demons in Nightspawn are commonly associated with
the Underground Railroad and the Resistance. They use the experience table
for alien characters provided in the Heroes Unlimited book. Their abilities
make them nearly equal to the average first level Nightspawn, with
the bonus of not needing to change into a Morphus, however lack special
Morphus bonuses, magic or Nightspawn talents.
Additional material: Those wishing to see Brachen demons should
watch any of the first nine episodes of the television series Angel.
