FASERIP à la sauce BASEs

le Redoutable

Call me the Gaspi
with a enhancement for beyond Beyond Range : the Saints Levels

BASEs scores are done by multiplying two stats among say six stats, with at least one stat reaching a given BASE

FASERIP Level ---------- BASEs -------
---------------- 3 -- 4 -- 5 -- 6 -- 7
--------------------------------------
Shift-0 -------- 1 -- 1 -- 1 -- 1 -- 1
Feeble --------- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2
Poor ----------- 3 -- 3 -- 3 -- 3 -- 3
Typical -------- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4
Good ----------- 6 -- 6 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5
Excellent ------ 9 -- 8 -- 6 -- 6 -- 6
Remarkable ---------- 9 -- 8 -- 8 -- 7
Incredible --------- 12 -- 9 -- 9 -- 8
Amazing ------------ 16 - 10 - 10 -- 9
Monstrous --------------- 12 - 12 - 10
Unearthly --------------- 15 - 15 - 12
Shift_X ----------------- 16 - 16 - 14
Shift_Y ----------------- 20 - 18 - 15
Shift_Z ----------------- 25 - 20 - 16
Class_1000 ------------------- 24 - 18
Class_3000 ------------------- 25 - 20
Class_5000 ------------------- 30 - 21

Saint Level 2 --------------------- 28

BASE - Hand Size
2 ---- 2 Normal Human
3 ---- 3 Inexperienced
4 ---- 4 Experienced
5 ---- 5 Authority Figure
6 ---- 6 The Best Anywhere

hoh!
I don't speak of a Unique God, but rather like in Thor, Odin, Hercules ( as a Demi-God ) etc
...
and I could speak of the Vision as a Saint ( because he can wield Thor's Hammer ?? )

I understand that. I still think it will confuse. You are either mixing up Christian and superhero stories, or you are inverting power rankings.

So can Steve Rogers/Captain America. So can Beta Ray Bill. So can Eric Masterson. So can Jane Foster.

then perhaps those persons are of Saint Level ( I mean " use BASE 7 " ) ?

the idea behind the " Saint " status should mean Saints are inoffensive, while Gods are always under conflict
...

also, using BASE 7 doesn't indue a FASERIP " Saint Level ( from 1 to 7 ) "

that's my bottom on the subject :)

you seem to argue that there's nothing above violence, which is a bad ( or sad ) behavior :(

What? I said no such thing.

You were using Thor's hammer (the primary use of which is hitting people) and the Vision, who takes active part in violence. So, there's not a lot there to indicate you thought "saint" meant "non-violent"

now if Gods live betwen Past and Future,
and if Saints rule in the Real Time,
then perhaps After_Worlds could live in the world after ours, i.e. in next world ( after the next immaculate conception ) and use BASE 8...

Completely unrelated note: I highly approve of adapting FASERIP to a new game- I recently did something similar myself ("See Confessions of a Hack Game Designer" if morbidly curious)! Marvel Super Heroes had some flaws, but it really feels like one of those systems that was ahead of it's time for being able to quickly create heroes and jump into play, but still having a fairly robust system.

I know a few who preferred Mayfair's DC Heroes game, but we can try to ignore those heretics.

For what it's worth, there's a retroclone of the system that's actually titled Faserip (affiliate link), and while it's primarily superhero-focused, it does talk about playing superheroic characters in other genres.
