With tonight’s Critical Hit recording looming (watch for live tweets of intentionally cryptic and maddening vague-osity) I am engaging in my usual pregame ritual: Memorizing Torq’s character sheet, the better to forget everything on it in the heat of combat and/or RP. Being an old-school comic book fan, I’m also wondering what build would best encapsulate a D&D version of the Martian Manhunter. Indeed, it would seem that many of my fave-rave characters, from John Stewart to the Black Knight to Alpha Flight’s Puck, would be easily converted into PCs without even stretching the rules. (Remind me to tell you about the round that I played featuring blatant knock-offs of Popeye, Kevin Nash, Blackie Lawless and Xena.)
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) rolls 7 dice, discards the lowest total, and commences to min/maxing, y’all, asking: What character from the worlds of fiction would be simplest to
shamelessly rip-off adapt into standard D&D? Which would be the coolest?
