Brock Samson for Strands of Fate I’m always open to suggestions for improvement for any of my character writeups! Aspects can be tricky to write, so any suggests for phrasing things better are particularly welcome. Point is, I’m not yet an expert with┬áStrands of Fate, but just look at these as an example and starting […]

Now, some Venture Brothers characters. First up, the actual Venture Brothers.┬áNext week, Dr. Thaddeus S. “Rusty” Venture and Brock Samson! Henry Allen “Hank” Venture The only thing I’m a little unhappy with in this writeup is Hank’s high Resources and Wealth Track. I figure, though, if the boys could get over their reluctance, they could […]

Green Lantern John Stewart for Strands of Fate I am a big fan of the old Justice League and Justice League Unlimited cartoons, so for me, the best Green Lantern is John Stewart. Although from the 90s comics, I have a soft spot for Guy Gardner. Cosplayer unknown, from Pinterest. Character Name: Green Lantern / […]

Wonder Woman for Strands of Fate Is “made the only good DC live-action movie” a good Background Aspect? :) This version of Wonder Woman is not quite the stone-cold bruiser that Superman is, but a pitched fight between the two could still go either way. She doesn’t have as much Super-Strength or Super-Endurance, but her […]

Wolverine and Rogue for Strands of Fate

Wolverine for Strands of Fate Of the characters I’ve written up, only Superman has more Physical Stress boxes than Wolverine, and Wolvie heals faster. When Wolvie Charges and uses Crippling Blow with his claws, he’s looking at WR +11, which is almost as much as Superman’s Galaxy-class Strength gives him. If you count in extra […]

Witchblade and Superman for Strands of Fate

Witchblade for Strands of Fate Sure, Witchblade is one attractive, skimpily-dressed heroine, but that’s not the main reason she’s in the writeup queue. She’s one of my wife’s favorite heroes. Witchblade is one of the few really good heroines out there that isn’t just a knockoff of a male hero, and that is still really […]

Batman for Strands of Fate

A few notes: If you haven’t figured it out, the Wealth Optional Stress Track rule is in effect. Most of these characters have appeared in many different versions in a variety of media. I’m going to try to present a well-rounded, “classic” version of the character. I’ll admit to a certain bias towards Bronze-Age/80s versions, […]

Spider-Man for Strands of Fate

One of my favorite multi-genre RPG systems is Strands of Fate, by Mike McConnell of Void Star Games (also makers of the transhuman cyberpunk RPG Nova Praxis). It’s the only version of FATE that ever really clicked for me. Over the New Year’s holiday, and while sick the last few days, I’ve fooled around with […]
