Unsure whether to make a boxer/brawler or somebody a little more powerful/armed, but I don't know what my opponent's plans are. If I make this barefist brawler character and then they make a character who uses swords and guns, I'm...probably not going to win.


@Silver Carrot
Muahahahahaha

Just kidding. I was definitely thinking something more ranged but very limited powerbase. low-mid tier. I'll have mine posted today.

Yep Canon is okay, but they will need tweaking depending on the round to fit the tier.

So close-ish to realistic, based on being fine with a chi blocker you mean the character themselves and not the setting? I came up with a relatively low powered setting where people are tasked with fighting monsters that secretly invade earth. They use spiritual magic but he's not in tuned, still in training, so basically just fights like a normal human with some weak telekinetic bursts like a simple shove if he concentrates super hard. They use special weapons able to take them out but no more powerful against humans than normal swords and whatnot.


This sounds fine, look forward to seeing your sheet, your opponent is ready.

Okay.

This will likely be my worst fight since I'm not a master at realistic combat styles so will have to try and win through overall strategy rather than combat technique. I hesitate giving any character any sort of advanced martial art, otherwise they would look like a fool doing something not within the style. One reason it's taking forever to come up with modern character. Hopefully his pointy sword will help him out.

Edit: @Drifting Pollen

I trust you and all, but according to the character sheet it seems like she could create a hundred foot long spear. Just throwing that out there.

Technically true! However, a hundred-foot-long spear would be absolutely useless as a weapon. The thing would have to either be too heavy to move, or have a shaft so thin it would snap like a twig.

If you want to hit someone a hundred feet away with a spear, you use a javelin.

I thought of a funny application for the technicallity of the power. If she created a long enough spear she could stab the moon and crawl up it if she was wearing a spacesuit...and if the spear with thick and strong enough to support it. I don't think that's troll science, it would just have to stick in good, I think. But perhaps it would get torn out no matter what from the forces of its orbit, like if the moon material isn't tough enough.

Or she could create a weapon large enough to create its own gravity on par with a planet or even a black hole, but I'm just taking things to extremes here.

Now she could create weapons too large to wield effectively but use other creative applications for them, but this power you have is perfectly fine and balanced to me if she uses it in the intended purpose.

I think the key word here is "weapon."

In theory, a creation ability could be able to make a spear that reached the moon, but then it wouldn't really be a spear, would it? Just a space elevator shaped like a spear. And a sword dense enough to be a black hole would be a black hole more than a sword. A weapon by definition is a tool meant to be wielded, and I'll state right now that for the purposes of this character/fight I won't consider giant and/or completely bonkers objects as weapons.

In short: as a rule of thumb Tekla's power can't summon anything she can't wear as armor or wield with her own two hands.

Name: "The Accountant" Mr. Wolff
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 215lbs
Appearamce: Gray Brioni Vanquish suit. Custom tailored with both fashion and tactical applications in mind. The Jacket's inner lining includes a new body armor that prevents blades from cutting the wearer but still inflicting blunt force trauma. It has minimal effect on most projectiles, reducing the damage they inflict by only a small percentage. Sewn in between the inner and outer layers of the jacket is a thermal shield. Several additional tactical pockets are included in both the jacket and pants. The back of his shirt contains a functional quiver inlay.
Abilities & Skills:
Master Marksman: The Accountant has keen eyesight that makes his accuracy virtually perfect. His training began as a mere boy and continued on for the entirety of his life. He is unerring with all types of bows, guns, and thrown or improvised weapons. Anything that requires aim is his specialty. With bows he is able to fire a few shots in a mere couple seconds, hitting multiple targets with a few quick strokes, and the smallest of objects from great distances. He has literally never been known to miss. He is even adept at bank/ricochet shots.

Peak Human Condition: His body functions at a level above the average Olympic athlete. Strength, speed, and stamina are all normal for someone of his build and age who goes through intense daily training. His arm and back muscles are particularly strong from the high draw strength required for his bows.

Exceptional Acrobat: He is able to perform complex aerial maneuvers thanks to not only his training, but his exceptional agility and great reflexes.

Martial Artist: Having been trained in various forms of martial arts he is an excellent hand to hand fighter.

Equipment: Briefcase, Customized bow that folds neatly into the briefcase, Custom quiver and arrows with various heads. Some simply offer more piercing power than the normal, some are explosive, incendiary, smoke, electro, net, acid, and flare.

Name: Tobias Wilcox

Appearence: Messy, unkempt straw-coloured hair adorns his head. His face is hard and angled, and his nose has clearly been broken once of twice in his life. He often wonders around in either a leather jacket or a black sweat top, underneath which he always wears a grubby white wife beater. Adorning his lower half are loose fitting cargo pants, and black army boots, which are oddly very clean.

Height: 6"0

Weight: 170 lbs

Abilities & Skills/History: Tobias doesn't look like much but he's tough as nails. Bareknuckle boxs in gambling pits since a young age, Toby can take as much punishment as he can dish out, which is a lot. Eventually picked out for his talent by talent scouts, he was trained extensively in MMA and amateur wrestling before being used for big money fighting pits, where he became notorious for outright killing his opponents with nothing but the sheer strength of his punches, though occasionally he'd choke an opponent to death. He was also known to kill people outside of fights if they got in his way, and as such and police officer who knew about him was too scared to arrest him.

Equipment: None
