Next in my series of Mindjammer Pregens, a Sniper, because every team of black-ops badasses requires a cool efficient ranged killing machine. My first thought was to blow my Extras budget on Extras, but then I realized they were totally unnecessary. Instead here is a highly skilled, and exceptionally talented, gunman with the skills to get what he needs, execute the mission, and leave no evidence he was ever there. The only persistent gear this Merc keeps on his person is his Sensor drone, used to help him setup a shot. With a high Ranged Combat skill, the Uncanny Accuracy stunt, and his Sensor Drone he can build a stack of free invokes to overcome extreme range. Even without any weapon bonuses whatsoever he has a minimum of two Free Invokes on a successful Create Advantage, another free invoke handed off from his drones Create Advantage action, and a Ranged Combat +4 thats a total of +10 to take down his target!

Even though these pregens are intended to be used by players as a template for creating their own characters, I think I’m going to create a full team. I may stick to the existing Genotypes, but I’m really tempted to explore the idea of a Neo-Avian pilot, and a Zvukimu Hominid Technician.
