Battle Angel Alita/Gunnm via MHRPMarch 1, 2012
I’m withholding judgment about the actual system of MHRP until I play it, though I thought I’d play with statting up one of my favorite manga heroines. What’s pretty interesting is that while she certainly alters Milestones here and there, she seems to come back to these core two issues, and her powers sometimes add things, she also comes back to this basic power set, though, admittedly, at this point in the series, we’re looking at D10 and D12 dice ratings. That said, I figured this is mostly wehere she was at for most of the Scrapyard storyline- solid D8’s.
