An R.C.C. for the Beyond the Supernatural,
Heroes Unlimited and Nightspawn role playing game's.
Background: In the world of Nightspawn Vigories are an alien race
of humanoids from another dimension. Although females are enslaved and
kept on their home world, a small number have escaped to Earth to live
free. Female Vigorie demons are suitable as player characters.
Appearance: Vigories are nearly human in appearance. The females have
two raised ridges running down either
cheek, violet eyes and the row of raised ridges on their back.
Note: In order to create a Vigorie character you need a copy of
Heroes Unlimited Revised Second Edition.
Making a Heroes Unlimited style
Details: The Vigorie 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 Mental Affinity ability grants them an aura that makes
the opposite sex swoon. Change M.A. attribute to 24+1D6, +10% to seduction
and pick pockets skills.
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 Prowess ability grants them an increased
agility and an extra attack per melee, as well as the ability to dodge
some attacks. +2D4 to P.P., +3D4 to Spd., +3 to automatic dodge.
The Power Channeling (Fire) ability gives them the ability to generate
powerful heat blasts from their hands. Just like regular Power Channeling,
but with fire instead of kinetic energy as the special effect.
Vigorie 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 Vigorie character class is suited for Nightspawn and Beyond the
Supernatural role playing game's. Vigories 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 they lack special
Morphus bonuses, magic or Nightspawn talents.
Additional material: Those wishing to see Vigorie demons should
watch the Angel episodes She and Warzone.
