Post Advice on buying certain powers controlled by an AI
on: September 6, 2017, 00:17

I am attempting my conversion of my V2.1 called G-Girl.

During the V2.1 character generation, since she was a 10-year-old heroine, when I rolled Invulnerability as a psionic device, I made it the form of a panda backpack.

Later on, as I was fleshing it out, I came up with the idea that the psionic device was a sort of artificial intelligence that monitored the field and acted as her companion, which I later ended up worked with my GM to make it fully realized and use it in her adventures in other capacities besides monitoring her Invulnerability field. I had the AI act essentially as an aid to her Intelligence(+10 to her INT score), aiding her research and other intellectual tasks.

Anyway, I am currently trying to convert G-Girl to an MP character but I'm trying to decide how I should buy the AI and the two powers, the Invulnerability Field and the +10 to her intelligence.

  • The AI is being bought as a Companion but since the Companion is completely dependent on G-Girl for mobility, would it be proper to buy the Companion with the Gear modifier?
  • I've opted to make her invulnerability field a force field device that the AI controls the renewal/reactivation. So, does this mean I buy the Force Field on the AI character sheet or do I buy it on the main sheet and allow the Companion to control the Force Field?
  • The +10 to G-Girl Intelligence is based on the interactions between the AI and G-Girl with the AI acting to help her and encourage her. So, do I buy it simply as Heightened Intelligence and gear, or does the idea that the AI is required to give her that Int Boost mean I buy it through the Companion sheet?

I would give your character Companion: -10 CPs (30), Gear (-5), Total Cost = 25 CPs. Then I would make her AI like this...

I thought I had responded before this time.

Anyway, this is like 'Wow'. A buttload of work this must have taken.
How did you fill out the character sheet? I was part of the KS and I didn't get the character builder excel files.

Thanks but it didn't really take me that long. I ran a 3.0/MP playtest for years and I can type pretty fast so making characters using the sheets doesn't take much time. You can read about my playtest campaign in this thread: http://monkeyhousegames.com/forum/?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1623

I've also translated dozens of marvel characters using the Mighty Protectors rules. You can see them at: https://adamantium2017.wordpress.com/

But where did you get the character sheet to fill-in the details?

I got it from Jeff. I also helped with one of the sheet's technical aspects. I've also written War Heroes, a WW II supplement for Mighty
Protectors that should be coming out in the near future. The link below shows a mockup of the cover. The artwork is by Scott Sackett: http://www.scottsackett.org/

According to Jeff on one of the Facebook V&V groups "any day now".

Also be sure to check the Downloads page to see if there are any new additions that may not have gotten enough fanfare
