Light City - The Green Ronin

This isn't a public domain character conversion. It's a fun tribute to the publisher of my favourite published supers system

Green Ronin

Real Name: Kenji Stevenson
First Appearance: Tales of the Yakuza #1

AC 4 [15]      HD: 4    Attacks:  Katana/Wakizashi (1d6+2)  Special: cast Invisibility 2/day    Move: 12/12 (climb)

The Japanese-American vigilante known as Green Ronin operates primarily on the west coast. However, the recent rise is Yakuza activity in Light City has brought him to the shining beacon. While he believes his cause is noble, his lethal methods put him at odds with many in the super hero community. The criminal Ronin hates above all others is King Cobra, the man responsible for his father's death.

Monsters of the Universe

Artist, Phil Postma, has done some really cool Universal Monsters/Masters of the Universe mash-ups. They are appropriately named Monsters of the Universe.

Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter

Last night I watched another of my other favourite vampire movies, Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter. If you've not seen it, you really need to. It's the perfect mix of Hammer Horror and swashbuckling action. Plus Caroline Munro is absolutely gorgeous as the gypsy, Carla.

Here are stats for Kronos and his followers for Lamentations of the Flame Princess.

Light City - Blacula

I re-watched Blacula this morning and I think Mamuwalde would make a great guest villain for Light City. While he is a monster, he shows remorse and love. He is a true vampire noble. If you want to learn more about Prince Mamuwalde, watch Blacula. Scream Blacula Scream was entertaining, but if you really want to learn about the character watch the first film.

Also, there is an alternate universe in my head that has Mamuwalde being from Wakanda and an ancestor of T'challa, the Black Panther.
Prince Mamuwalde

Real Name: Mamuwalde
First Appearance: Blacula
AC 2 [17]      HD: 8+6    Attacks:  2 Slams (2d6+2) or Bite (1d6, see below)   Special: see below    Move: 12/15 (flying/bat form)

Prince Mamuwalde can cast the following spells: Charm Person 3/day

As a vampire, the prince has many special abilities and advantages. He can turn into a bat and has incredible strength. He is immune to damage from mundane weapons. He might be knocked back by a solid hit with a shovel or something of that nature (but it doesn't actually do damage). However, fire affects him just like it would any other man. He also takes 10 points of damage a round when in direct contact with the sun. Holy water can harm him and if presented by someone with conviction (though not necessarily religious conviction), he can be held at bay with a cross. He can be killed if a wooden stake is driven into his heart while in his coffin or by direct sunlight.

Anyone killed by Mamuwalde's bite will rise as a vampire. Being undead, he can be resurrected via certain black magics.

What do you think about this format? My next Light City project is a villain and henchman guide.
