Putting the Savage(Worlds) in our Heroes: Samus
What is this: Man, according to Tommy Brownell Savage worlds does not! claim to be a universal system. But that’s fine, it just means that the people at Pinnacle are smart and know to now oversell their game. It still fits in my series because the whole point of this has always been to stretch the system and see what it can handle. I’ve decided for some reason to stat the ENTIRE original super smash bros lineup. Today since I’m going through the lineup in order its Samus from the Metroid series of vidja games.
Remember: You can use this in your savage worlds game. I’m not going to hurt you if you change this, in fact I encourage it. Follow along with your Savage Worlds Explorers Edition.
Who is Link: An intergalactic bounty hunter and peacekeeper. She’s a bad-anus and fights aliens for breakfast.
Explanation: Samus is well rounded,but I made Vigor and Agility d8’s because she is very resilient, and she is a jumper. Screw attack MF’er.
Skills(I’m only writing down trained skills):
Explanation: These are really her only skills, so it wasn’t hard to stat her this way. I did wonder about Fighting though since in her games she does very little fighting without a gun.
Explanation: See below(and above!), they are derived after all…
Quick Draw: Let’s her always have the weapon she needs.
Energy Gun:I’m going to say as the M1, because it has a slow rate of fire, and it can shoot missiles with a limited capacity, we’ll say 10. These Missiles do a 2d10 damage instead of 2d8.
Power Suit: Since the power suit is not all powered up we’ll say it starts with a +2 to toughness.
The end…Samus was easy, but at the same time I didn’t scratch the surface of what Samus can do(frost beams, bombs, screw attack, ect). Most of her power comes from her gear, so I hope I didn’t overpower her. Since that gear I completely made up on the spot.
Rank: Novice(10 xp)
