Super-power Rule 4.1.1. D6 Hero: Truth, Justice, & Men In Red Spandex B  eing a comic book hero is hard work and d6 Hero tries to make it as easy as possible for crime-fighters to hit the dirty streets as quickly as possible. Before characters do, players need to know how the super-power rule works.    T  he chance for successfully using a super-power in d6 Hero is based on one of two possible actions: One, the character is using the power in a direct challenge against another character’s abilities or, two, a predetermined Success Level (SL). Most attack-oriented super-powers require a very straight-forward success role in which an appropriate attribute bonus is used versus a base attack (SL) of 12. Other powers provide a bonus to a success test (for instance, ultra-vision is used as a perception bonus in darkness). For attacking, the hero receives an additional bonus of the power’s minimum level plus the attribute bonus towards succeeding. All powers are considered to “work” though a character may fail an attempt using a power. Powers that involve shape changing or matter manipulation “work” though a character may fail all uses of that power. For instance, a character with shape change wishes to turn into a bat. They do. However, when that character attempts to fly or use echolocation or any other ability possessed by a bat, the attempt will require a success role against a target number based on the desired outcome. To fly, it may be the level of power versus body for instance.   4.1.3. Damage,/ Volume/ Duration E  ach super-power in d6 Hero possesses a level such as 1D6, 2D3, etc. This level indicates the amount of damage inflicted or stopped, the volume of substance created or affected, or the duration of the effect. All super-powers possess at least one of these three characteristics: Damage, volume, or duration (abbreviated as D/V/D or Dam/Vol/Dur). In most cases, the super-power specifies which category its level depicts. ã Damage  : Unless specified, each level is an indication of physical damage with inertia as applicable. ã Volume  : Unless specified, each level indicates a single 3’ x 6’ space.   ã Duration  : Unless specified, each level indicates a single combat round.    Page 2 d6 Hero: 4.2.0. Creating a Hero a.k.a. Getting Nuked 4.2.1. Reaction Adjustment & D/V/D D6 Hero requires the addition of one attribute: Reaction Adjustment. The goal of every hero is to stop crime and fight evil. However, being popular runs a close second. Reaction Adjustment gives a starting attribute bonus for a character based on their origin (human through alien) and appearance (attractive through monstrous). When dealing with the press, police, or an unruly or frightened mob, Reaction Adjustment provides the interaction. Depending on the character’s origin, the public at large can have dramatically different views of the hero’s work. If the character is ‘human’, then their powers are considered to be from mechanical devices.  Table 4.1 provides a quick reference. By rolling first for the origin (2D6) and then rolling for appearance (2D6), character’s can get a quick judge of the public’s reaction to their efforts.

ReactionAdjustment Example. D/V/D. Kid Wonder is attempting to fly through an open window. This has a success level of 8 (it’s a small window and Kid’s in hurry). Kid Wonder has 2D3 levels of flying. We add his base level to his agility to fly through the window. Agility (3) + Flying (2) = a (+5) to his roll of 2D6 when determining his success  . Example. Calculating D/V/D. Our boy Rutherford has seen better days: An altered human with a disturbing appearance carries a –1 Reaction Adjustment. He rolls 2D6 for the strength of his first power and gets a “10” which gives his first power a strength of 2D6, good start. If he’d been normal in appearance, the power would only have a strength of 1D6. Rutherford can choose to have several super-powers, but the muses only recommend up to three powers (see vulnerabilities). He would roll on the table 4.5 for each (we’ll randomly determine powers later). It does pay to be ugly some days...  Page 3 Volume 1, Module 1 Crowd Reactions  . If a hero fails to make their reaction adjustment roll, what happens? D6 1When Crowds Attack, crowd physically assaults the hero, mistaking them for the enemy. 2Call the Police  , crowd squeals to the police about your activities. 3Run Away  ,   crowd feels threatened by the hero or situation and immediately attempt to flee. 4  Fame  , the crowd hopes to be on TV and so actively attempt to stay with the action. 5  Ignored  , the hero is completely ignored. 6  Gawk  , crowd thickens as more come to rubber-neck. Reaction Adjustment  . When attempting to get the public to support their efforts (asking police to circle the building or give you forensic information, or asking the public to clear away), a success test using the SL of the crowd at the moment (base SL 10) versus the Reaction Adjustment bonus of the character. 4.2.3. Vulnerabilities a.k.a. Getting Screwed For those who look like monstrous-freaks-of-nature, good news! You’ll be compensated with more power! That’s right, the more the crowd is afraid of you, dislikes you or is otherwise uncomfortable in your presence the stronger your powers. Roll 2D6 then cross reference the number with your Reaction Adjustment value to determine the strength of each of your super-powers.   It never fails, you’re tougher-n-nails and about to take down the bad guy with a solid optic blast when some nosy reporter gets in the way. You take some lumps, they take some pictures, and the evil super-villain takes some money. All in a hero’s day.  The following table can be used if you don’t have the free Hero Character Generator. A Character can have up to three powers, the first one is free. The next super-power and for each thereafter requires a roll on the Vulnerabilities table. For each additional roll, players should add +2 to the total roll for vulnerability type and re-roll duplicates unless a player has a new twist for the vulnerability.

CalculatingDamage/ Volume/ Duration    Page 4 d6 Hero: Vulnerabilities come in several flavors: from minor irritations to deadly sensitivities to substances. To roll vulnerability type, roll 1D6 for type, 1D6 for the severity, and 1D6 again for the specific vulnerability. Not all vulnerabilities affect all heroes equally and can be the difference between not wanting to be stung by a bee to not wanting to die from being stung. After rolling for the type of vulnerability, roll 1D6 to determine its strength. Use common sense to determine whether the strength reflects number of occurrences, SL for decision making 1  (save the girlfriend or dismantle the bomb that’s going to blow up the city), or damage. For each vulnerability, turn the page and find the way it specifically manifests itself on the corresponding tables. 1   We recognize the inherent lack of common sense common to most players so remember this fundamental rule—the ref is always right.   1 Personal Life Complication Hero has personal like problems that interfere with heroing such as having no money, a job, a secrete identity, etc... 2 Body Issues Hero is “differently” abled. 3 Little Twitchy Hero’s mind is unstable and consequently they suffer from a psychological disorder. 4 Control Issues Hero has trouble controlling their emotional ‘urges’. 5 Loss Vulnerabilities Certain substances remove a hero’s powers. 6 Sensitivities Certain substances cause the hero damage.
