Cinematic Heroes In A Half-Shell - Leonardo

Recently, I've been in on a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kick. They have a new video game coming out Tuesday, I recently picked up some of their new Heroclix, and I think the new movie looks like a lot of fun. I've read through Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Other Strangeness again, but I'm still not feeling it (though I like the random animal and origin charts).  I've decided to go with an earlier idea of using cinematic unisystem to run a game. I think Angel is the best system to use to build characters. The demon qualities work perfectly to simulate animal mutations. If you want flying, the quality is in Ghosts of Albion and if you want to build a robot, Buffy has you covered. I think it will work nicely. 

I've statted out teenage starting character Leonardo (my favourite turtle). For those of you familiar with cinematic unisystem, what do you think?

  1. I'm no help on the stats cuz I know very little about Unisystem, but I'm very much in favor of mutant animal gaming! I'm also with you in that the best parts of the TMNT game were the random tables. (BTW, I have a series of tables over on Monstrous Matters for rolling up a random anthro animal can get the animal AND the adjectives...!)
