Putting the Savage(Worlds) in our Heroes: Mario and Luigi
What is this: Savage worlds claims to be a universal system. Usable for everything. With this series I plan to look to see if this is the case, and look at some of my favorite characters. I’ve decided for some reason to stat the ENTIRE original super smash bros lineup. Today since I’m going through the lineup in order is Luigi/Mario. Thats right I’m pairing them up since there is almost no discernible difference.
Remember: You can use this in your savage worlds game. I’m not going to hurt you if you change this, in fact I encourage it. Follow along with your Savage Worlds Explorers Edition.
Who are Mario and Luigi: A plumber who fights little mushroom people and turtle people. He does this to save his beloved Princess Peach. Oh and Luigi’s there too…sometimes.
Explanation: Mario’s defining feature is jumping so I figured a d10 in Agility would do the trick.
Skills(I’m only writing down trained skills):
Explanation: So I threw in some of Mario(and therefor Luigi) ‘s secondary skills like climbing and swimming. I put throwing because of his awesome spin throw.
Explanation: See below(and above!), they are derived after all…
Loyal(minor): No matter how many times Peach gets kidnapped he goes after her. Guys kind of obsessed.
Enemy(Major): Bowser yo.
Sweep: He has a move in the games that allows him to hit everyone around him. At least I think.
Steel tipped boots: works as long sword. And YES I know that he probably doesn’t have steel tipped boots but in my mind he does so deal.
The end… I was surprised that Mario is so low powered. It’s fine but I realized halfway through making him that there really isn’t a lot going on with Mario so it makes sense that he doesn’t have a lot of edges or anything. Stay tuned for Donkey Kong next.
