Buffyverse notes

A while back I posted about the links between Buffy and Roseanne which did not have much to do with Gaming.  Criminal I know.  In exchange here are a few notes that I had lying around for Buffyverse in V&V.  This post also celebrates their 2017 Reunion (And thanks to Entertainment weekly for the Picture).

This group of Champions represents the a few notes about various heroes of the Buffyverse.  Each one is presented is modeled upon information gleaned from the 12 television seasons and movie, it currently does not include the various illustrated information (Fray, Buffy Season 8 & the Angel graphic novels).  Many of the listed characters begin humble and slowly expand (especially Buffy) finally reaching levels of power rarely seen.  Some of the characters change dramatically going from powerless (or nearly so) to nigh omnipotent, in the case of Willow, while Zander Harris never really even touches the supernatural metapowers range except for temporary (single episode) alterations.

Skills

Sunnydale Schooling:  because of the nature of being on the Hellmouth the Sunnydale Academia have stepped up to the challenge as much as they are able and anyone completing more than one year of Schooling in Sunnydale automatically receives +4 (the equivalent of Ht. Expertise) with all paramedic style rolls, this is defensible from the standpoint of multiple of the graduates (and Dawn) have saved lives as well as given detailed medical information (Specifically notable when Cordie’ notes various items to the Paramedics in season one of Angel).

 

 

Alternate Notes and Characters

I was thinking about how it could be fun to play a character who inherited the bulk of the Watchers legacy (whatever survived the explosions and killings in Season 6 plus their work related insurance policies) and a campaign built around attempts to keep him in one piece long enough to grow into a leader for the New Watchers Council, as well as a few lines I might see/use in such a situation.

”There is a girl around the deaths of several supernatural creatures.  I am looking for her yet she is well hidden.”

“Well what about the insurance policies you said were out about the dead guys I profited from?”

“You think that the insurance company knows where to find her mentor?”

“Well Why Not?

“I… Don’t Know, I never thought of that.”

 

“Heh, we are lucky to have a few supernatural’s, some groups are only a few learned mortals trying to stem the tide of darkness with little chance.  I always swore I would never join such a lost cause.”
