Since my last magical tournament was mysteriously deleted and went bust, I'll be making this gauntlet, instead! ><

Following your origin, you somehow find an artifact, or are given access to a blessing(s) of your choice. The lore and plot device aspect is up to you ;P

You have 100 points to pick the blessings and equipment that you want. You may pick one origin for free.

Post your character for me to look over!

I'll post up the rounds a few days from now.

Origins

Blessed Dirt - You were molded from the magical clay of Paradise Island - you are practically wonderful in every way!

Grants slightly enhanced stats, martial arts training and resistance to magic. (2 ton strength, 15mph speed, heightened agility) You are also equipped with the Amazons' Bracelets of Submission, durable enough to block gunfire. You are also given a 25 point discount on the Bracelets of Victory, bringing their cost down to 25 points.

This time for sure! - You are a magically-empowered super villain of some kind! After being defeated at the hands of your nemesis for the umpteenth time, you somehow gain new abilities. You have the ability to cast rudimentary spells (bolts, weak barriers) and you are able to pick one 25 point "equipment" or "blessing" for free.

Gone! Gone! the form of man - You are cursed into a demonic form of some kind. You have knowledge of the arcane, the ability to throw balls of flame and breathe fire. You are also highly resistant to magic, and a little more durable. You also smell kinda bad. (No strength, speed or other benefits.)

The Name's Billy Batson! - You are a little boy able to magically transform into a super hero! Grants the ability to renew yourself ONCE with magical lightning. The lightning cannot be used offensively. You may also choose one extra blessing at HALF efficiency.

Child of Greatness - You are the offspring of a god. Being half-god, you have a base strength of 3 tons and are slightly more durable, able to shrug off standard human-level punches and blows. You gain access to a free blessing at 25% efficiency, or an extra 25% efficiency on one blessing. This will give an extra use on any limited use powers, as well.

Joe Schmoe - You are just a normal dude. You were, through some plot device, given powers, or found a magical artifact that grants you powers. (Grants an extra 50 points to spend, but no other benefits.)

Queen Hipplyta's Magical Sphere - 25 points

Grants you the ability to monitor any present events. Gives you knowledge of your opponent's prep, and also comes with 30 minutes of prep time for each round.

Blessings

H - 50 points

The initial gauntlet will be several rounds, and I'll be posting them either tomorrow or the day after. After that, I'm thinking of letting the people that clear vs. each other, but I'm not sure. The focus will be clearing the gauntlet!

I tried to make as many options available as possible. I'm hoping for a lot of variation.

I tried to design it as much as that wasn't possible ;P but I smell a Vixen fan? haha

All right, you're through with those powers.

I tried to make the powers and choices really diverse, but still give limitations on what you can pick. I'd like to see what you come up with =] I put a lot of effort into it.

The extra 25% was only for blessings, and doesn't count towards equipment =[

You have the H for 25 tons of strength, or the M for 25% speed of sound movement and flight. Or could you go for any of the others, as well.

I'm only saying this because, otherwise, the character would be a lot stronger than the other entries.

Able to see and sense auras (gives information about the health, karma, abilities, "true form" and power level of a target), able to see through illusions.

Just curious was this meant to be Dr Fate's Amulet. It's a lot more powerful than you've indicated and every bit as powerful as the Helm of Nabu. The only thing it lacks on the helm is the essence / sentience within the helm that also gives knowledge. When Khalis regained it (Nabu had taken it from hims centuries prior) he was easily a match fro classic Fate and Fate only one thanks to an ancient magic seal.

Story from1st issue special # 9 (19 74 IIRC) then reprinted in Immortal Doctor Fate issue 1 (1985) along with fate's Origin and a GA story of him fighting Wotan

If that's only 25 point, I'll take it. I'll work out how I'm spending the remaining 75 later

His artifacts were too hard to balance, and will only have the powers listed.

@greenteaforme: For the sake of accuracy you may want to switch the Amulet of Anubis for the Cloak of destiny. It's the Fate talisman that actually has the powers you listed. The Helm gives fate access to the power of order (for magic) and guidance. The amulet the power of chaos. He actually rarely uses it's power and it's more destructive.
