TSR Marvel bits and pieces

Based on old notes recovered from 3.5 floppies - so pardon formatting and some other issues - i just thought safer here than on Amiga format discs from 80s

My versions of dire wraiths a awesome marvel monster race worked well as enemy for a alien player in game and i could go to 70+ issues of comic for stories. 2 volumes of Rom comics with annuals and team ups for final war would be way cool.

Banks was in start of game agent who watched party and could impress heroes for long time before they discovered his secret. Way before Lynch in Image too - all spawned by player wanting a highlanderesque pagan vampire hunting archer. Immortals made a great player type in game.

Wrekkas were my sentinals but based also on some other robots especially in dr who comic. Started out clunky insane and almost comical kept getting better and better.

Starspawn of cthulhu proved a great menace

Swarm monsters were connected to source of most metagenetic outbreaks on earth. Heroes killed humanoid leader. Yhen nuked spaceborn monster resulting in cloud of biomatter surrounding earth before discovering nemesis planetoid.

Notes: Dire Wraiths are sinister aliens who can adopt the form of any being whom they devour the brain of with a tounge attack and a Consume Likeness feat. With a Consume Likeness stunt they can develop a permanent form which can be adopted at will. Usually each wraith has a human ID and a monster form from some biological experiment. Darkwings, a common example are shadowy peradactl like demons which belch flame to attack. Many monsters have unusual abilities. Wraiths use their powers and alien science to create monsters, infiltrate the Earths institutions and create disasters.
Varient: Wraithwalocks are reproductive males who also have a powers but are too rare and valuable to appear on the battlefeild. Non-repoductive male or Peons, have no specialty power. Peons also have mostly Good stats and powers but some exceptional example have one or more excellent stats. Most Peons are less talented also. They act as servants to other wraiths and adopt undercover assignments in low threat missions. Of late they have been using more and more human technology. This trend has appalled the Hivequeen council and it is heretical for peons to love their human ways too much.

Mark I
These early robots came to serve special forces in Wrekka USA in the late eighties.Some secret organizations had reached this stage possibly as early as the forties. Typically they are armed and programed for: security, riot control, prison guard, special forces and police work. This includes: Truncheons, Shokk Batons, Impaling Spike, Riot Gun, SMG, Laser Rifle, Flashlight, Sonic Stunner Carbine, Shokksheild, jetpack, Netgun, Watercannon, Fire retardant foam, metascanner, motion detector, radar, thermograph, multiband radio/video, computer interface, Anti-meta/vehichle ammo. Human apearing decoy models have also been built to infiltrate then overcome enamies from within.

Mark II These appeared as anti-meta and millitary models in the early nineties. Some occasional villains had built them as one offs in the seventies. Typicaly they are armed for extreme and preferably non-urban missions. Arms include: Machineguns, Autocannons, Rockets, Missiles, Chain Gun, Light Cannon, Plasma Gun, Ex flightpack and wings, Satelite Uplinks, Sensor and Commo suite, Cutting Laser, Flame Thrower, Railgun, Grenaide Launcher, specific counter power customization (such as heat sheilding, flame retardant webb, coldfoam, heat seeking missiles vs a character with heat powers).

Mark III These were elite command units in Wrekka America, first seen in the mid nineties. Able to instigate urban combat and concern for safety of humans, as well as fly into orbit and hunt sattelites. Energy weapons, internal power plants, non lethal weapons make them deadly foes. Arms Include: Plasma Cannons, Stunner Cannon, Strobiscopic flash gun, Shokk Touch, Rm vectored thrusters, combat computer (Spot Weakness) .

Mark IV
These were built in the last days of Wrekka USA as prototypes and have only recently seen again. They seized control of the USA for it’s own good and shocked the world. Their Energy weapons are still highly sophisticated and seldom understood. Only Meta science can produce them. Arms include: Mn aerospace engines and wings, Multispectrum energy blaster, Energy Web, Plasma Blade, Forcesheild reinforced armour, Energy Harpoon, PowerScrambler, Power Inhibitor Cuffs

Mark V One of these was built by completely unknown means in 1996, for a time it was the supreme Wrekka before it evolved it’s own self identity and disappeared. Australian Sentinel claims he last saw the mighty weapon in disguise working as a janitor in Chicago. Orion was apparently built from the molecular leval and is theoretically near indestructible. Arms include Antigravitic flight, ForceFeild, Shapeshift, Disintergrator, Tractor/Repulsor beam, Power Inhibiter Feild, Psi Jammer Feild, Immortality, Cyberempathy, Telport, Powerscan, Aurasense, Reflection, Energy Absorption,

Notes: All have body armour = to their Endurance and self destruct at Endurance +2cs. Psyche represents electronic countermeasures vs insanity and control. Fumbles on a reason roll means the robot makes a serious error and deviates from normal programing. A Psyche feat determins how severe this is. Mark IV and V actualy can be detected as psychic entities but their psuedo organics are difficult to influence. Customized Androids and more humanoid beings may have simular stats but fewer powers. Memory metal/plastic androids, psuedobiological, artificial intellect, human appearing synthetic and biological coated exoframes, technoorganic nanomachine colonies, molecular arranged circuits, are just a few varieties

Notes: Starspawn plunged to Earth aeons ago from some distant sun. They ruled the Earth foe a time until the stars grew dim and they slept to await a more favorable set of constellations. They live in subterranean chasms, submerged cities, lake bottoms, icecaps and other hidden places. They are tended by Deep ones and some times humans. They have been at war with other primordial species such as the Great Old Ones. The greatest of them is Cthulhu who dwells in his sunken palace where he has been priest king of his civilization for millions of years.

Once hired killers, today they serve Iron King as trainers for his assassins. Possibly he seized control of them from a hidden immortal leader.

Notes: This species arrived on Earth secretly and apeared during the invasion peak to attack key outposts of human resistance to the invasion. They are lumpy green humanoids with a crablike claw on one arm and a biological weapon on the other. They communicate via whale like squarks and squeals. A pod of homunculus are usually armed as per their mission or possible opponent, but mostly bolt-throwers.
Starspawn Swarm Monster Notes: Swarm monsters descended during the culmination of the Metawars, When the worlds metahumanoids assaulted Iron King. They mistook IK forthe source of alien and metanormal activity. When the swarm came to avenge IK, a mere sub organism of the Nemesis Planetoid, all realized that the Earth had long been locked in a cosmic struggle between macrocosmic structural metagenetic beings. Swarmlings occasionally form the metagenetic cloud belt surrounding the Earth. Swarmlings decend in re-entry cacoons then seek a lair (underground if possible), then food (humanoids), then metagenetic samples (metahumanoids) and finally reproduction. All follow a hive organization and build elaborate tunnels reinforced by organic concrete made by their saliva and dirt. Sometimes both species live together. Some weird things have been found in these hives such as edible moulds, luminous fungi, human luring fungal blooms (Ex scent based mindcontrol), tiny parasitic beetles and more.
