Welcome to Hyper Score Marvel where every week I use Hypercorps 2099 (free stuff alert!) to put together an iconic hero or villain from the world’s most popular superhero universe! Unlike Street Fighter D&D, this series is for both the Pathfinder players out there and D&D 5E groups as well.

By request our subject this week is the man from the alternate future, Bishop! If there’s someone you’d like to see please comment with a request, and if you see room for improvement let me know. Also, if you dig this, share it around and like it and so forth! Thanks! 😀

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Hyper Flaw – Mercurial Mind: Being time-tossed and frequently experiencing new memories befuddles Bishop’s mind at critical moments. Whenever he is hit by a critical hit or fails a saving throw against a mind-affecting spell or special ability, he also gains the confused condition for 1d4 rounds.

Hyper Flaw – Temporal Nemeses: Bishop’s enemies exist in the past, present, and future, and they frequently alter the timeline without giving him any opportunity to stop them until after the act has already been perpetrated. Often times these cause broad changes only Bishop might remember differently, but sometimes they can be at critical times to leave him vulnerable or trapped. As a result of their meddling, Bishop’s only adds his hyper score once when calculating his Luck and Reputation attributes.

Hyper Power: Energy Conduit (Ex) Bishop can absorb the following types energy from single attacks or area effects, though in the case of the latter other creatures and objects are usually still affected: cold, electricity, fire, force, holy, sonic, unholy. He does not make a saving throw against the effect but takes no damage from it, instead gaining 1 conduit point per 5 points of damage the attack would have inflicted. These conduit points last until Bishop discharges them and the maximum number of conduit points Bishop can have at one time is 18. When Bishop has filled his energy reserves he ceases to absorb energy damage until he has spent some of his conduit points.
    By spending his immediate action, Bishop can draw in ambient energy around him (such as from an area attack) to absorb all energy damage dealt nearby. Doing so for a 10-ft.-radius causes him to collect twice as many conduit points and for a 15-ft.-radius three times as many conduit points (roll the energy damage once). At the GM’s discretion, Bishop can also use this ability to absorb the energies from hyper powers or spells with other effects than dealing damage by winning on an opposed caster level check. On a success, Bishop absorbs 1d4 conduit points and the effect is negated.
     If Bishop cannot absorb all of the energy damage, from an attack or effect, divide the remaining damage by the average roll of the damage dice type (rounding up) and deal that energy damage to the area (for example, if Bishop absorbs 32 points of a 40 damage fireball, the 8 remaining damage, which comes from d6s, is divided by 3.5 and rounded up to 3d6 fire damage.) There are three ways for Bishop to spend his conduit points: energy blasts and energy eruptions.

  • Energy Blast (Ex): As a standard action, Bishop can unleash an energy blast at a single target up to a range of 250 feet. He must have at least one hand free to aim the blast. Bishop is never considered to be wielding or gripping the energy blast, and he can’t use Vital Strike feats with energy blasts. Energy blasts always deal full damage to swarms of any size. For every conduit point Bishop spends on an energy blast (up to maximum of 5), it either deals 1d10 damage on a successful hit, or he shoots one additional 1d10 damage energy blast for every additional conduit point spent (up to a maximum of 5). Bishop cannot shoot multiple energy blasts that deal more than 1d10 damage. Bishop’s energy blasts deal either force damage or holy damage (he chooses which type of damage to use when activating this ability).
  • Energy Eruption (Ex): As a standard action, Bishop can unleash his stored energy in a devastating wave of destruction to all objects and creatures within a 20-foot-radius. The energy eruptions deals 3d6 damage per 3 conduit points spent, up to a maximum of 18d6 (costing 18 conduit points). Creatures within the area may make a DC 21 Reflex save for half damage.
  • Energy Fists (Ex): As a swift action, for 1 conduit point Bishop can cause his melee attacks to deal an additional 1d12 points of energy damage (force or holy) for 1 round. For every 2 additional conduit points spent, Bishop can increase this extra damage by +1d12 (to a maximum of 4d12).

Hyper Power: Energy Conduit. Bishop can absorb the following types energy from single attacks or area effects, though in the case of the latter other creatures and objects are usually still affected: cold, fire, force, lightning, necrotic, psychic, radiant, thunder. He does not make a saving throw against the effect but takes no damage from it, instead gaining 1 conduit point per 4 points of damage the attack would have inflicted. These conduit points last until Bishop discharges them and the maximum number of conduit points Bishop can have at one time is 18. When Bishop has filled his energy reserves he ceases to absorb energy damage until he has spent some of his conduit points.
     By spending his reaction, Bishop can draw in ambient energy around him (such as from an area attack) to absorb all energy damage dealt nearby. Doing so for a 10-ft.-radius causes him to collect twice as many conduit points and for a 15-ft.-radius three times as many conduit points (roll the energy damage once). At the GM’s discretion, Bishop can also use this ability to absorb the energies from hyper powers or spells with other effects than dealing damage by winning on an opposed caster level check. On a success, Bishop absorbs 1d4 conduit points and the effect is negated.
     If Bishop cannot absorb all of the energy damage, from an attack or effect, divide the remaining damage by the average roll of the damage dice type (rounding up) and deal that energy damage to the area (for example, if Bishop absorbs 32 points of a 40 damage fireball, the 8 remaining damage, which comes from d6s, is divided by 3.5 and rounded up to 3d6 fire damage.) There are three ways for Bishop to spend his conduit points: energy blasts and energy eruptions.

  • Energy Blast (Ex). As an action, Bishop can unleash an energy blast at a single target within 250 feet. He must have at least one hand free to aim the blast. Energy blasts always deal full damage to swarms of any size regardless of resistances. For every conduit point Bishop spends on an energy blast (up to maximum of 5), it either deals 1d10 damage on a successful hit, or he shoots one additional 1d10 damage energy blast for every additional conduit point spent (up to a maximum of 5). Bishop cannot shoot multiple energy blasts that deal more than 1d10 damage. Bishop’s energy blasts deal either force damage or radiant damage (he chooses which type of damage to use when activating this ability).
  • Energy Eruption (Ex). As an action, Bishop can unleash his stored energy in a devastating wave of destruction to all objects and creatures within a 20-foot-radius. The energy eruptions deals 3d6 damage per 3 conduit points spent, up to a maximum of 18d6 (costing 18 conduit points). Creatures within the area may make a DC 19 Dexterity saving throw for half damage.
  • Energy Fists (Ex). As a bonus action, for 1 conduit point Bishop can cause his melee attacks to deal an additional 1d8 points of energy damage (force or radiant) for 1 round. For every 2 additional conduit points spent, Bishop can increase this extra damage by +1d8 (to a maximum of 4d8).
