Supers Unlimited Character Game Cards

This week we wanted to to take a closer look at the Supers Unlimited Character game cards. Next week we will resume looking at the upcoming minis and bios!

Pre-generated Supers Unlimited Characters have their own Character card. These cards depict a Character’s Traits, Keywords, Abilities, Talents, Gear or Spells (if any), and Attacks.

  1. Character high concept, Level, Alignment and Class(es)
  2. Primary Traits: Power, Move and Size
  3. HP track (red boxes denote the Character’s Red Zone)
  4. Attack Action Traits: Fight, Aim, Mind and Magic; the first number after the trait is the number of dice rolled, the second number (preceded by R) is the associated Resistance
  5. Recovery Trait; unlike the Attack Traits, this doesn’t have an associated Resistance value
  6. Keywords for Type and Origin, plus Elements and/or Specialities for some Characters
  7. Weakness, if any
  8. Talents, Abilities and Attack profiles
  9. Faction symbol
  10. Alignment symbol

The Cowl (Coming Soon)

The Cowl is a legacy hero, bearing the mystical mantle that gives her code-name, and is the latest in a line of shadowy heroes who have used that power in the pursuit of justice.

The history and experience of each preceding Cowl imprints on the mystical hood, offering guidance to the next wearer until their time finally comes to an end. The current Cowl focuses on street-level super-crime in Louisiana's Rivière Noire, while also serving as  member of the Covenant of Justice. Averse to taking lives unless there is no other option, she primarily relies on special less-than-lethal ammunition for her trusty guns.

The Cowl will form part of the Supers Unlimited launch range in early 2019.

Supers Unlimited Beta Cards!

As an interlude between the Supers Unlimited Character biographies and minis previews we would like to show off the cards which will be available for download during the open beta phase of the Supers Unlimited launch.

The open beta rules will be available free-to-download at launch as will cards for all of the launch Characters. This will be one of the two rules systems that this range of minis launches with!

We plan to launch with the following Characters, and hope to unlock more if the launch campaign goes well: (Heroes) Ace, Doc Cosmos, Soldier Hex and The Cowl; (Villains) Big Brain, Blackthorn, Immolator and Mayhem; (Anti-Heroes) Roughneck and Tox.

We have plans for not only these ten supers, plus many more (such as the mysterious Grievous Angel for Season 2) - stay tuned for more information in the next few weeks!

Roughneck (Season 1)

Roughneck is a self-appointed protector of the streets - frequently out of his depth, more than once he has been all too easily manipulated by villains.

Mike Ruiz was a mechanic working the family auto-shop he inherited, just trying to get by. Thinking only of honoring his parents, Mike refused to pay protection money to the local mob, sparking a tragic course of events. One night as he locked up, he was attacked by three men. A skilled fighter, he surprised them with his ferocity and put two in the hospital. The next night more mobsters came, this time with a low-rent super-crook named Smash. Mike had prepared, and boob-trapped the auto-shop and yard. As mobsters were injured by his ambush, Smash tore into Mike with pulverizing fists. Mike was broken that night, the criminals leaving him for dead even as they torched the auto-shop.

The beating Mike took changed him, triggering a strong sense of right or wrong that was only compromised by often violent and erratic behavior. His physical recovery surprised the clinicians who worked with him, as determination pushed Mike to train himself to his limit and beyond. All through his rehabilitation a plan formed in Mike's mind, that he would become a heroic protector of the streets against villains like Smash. He fashioned the equipment he needed, making his own body armor and a reinforced baseball bat. Taking to the streets, Roughneck was born.
