Milestone for Namora [revised]

N is for NamoraAtlantean Heritage

  • 1 XP: When you use your Loyal Friend distinction to help an ally.
  • 3 XP: When your Atlantean heritage plays an important part in a scene.
  • 10 XP: When EITHER you leave your current team to fulfill your Atlantean duty OR you remain despite the cost.

My first attempt at writing an individual milestone for a hero. Since players can choose to play a single milestone and add an additional one during a transition scene, I have decided to keep it nice and easy for myself and create single milestones for player heroes. This milestone combines elements from existing ones, but most notably from Colossus for the 3 XP entry.

Namora is presented slightly weaker version of the Sub-Mariner, found in Civil War CW 208. The changes I made were in her Affiliations, Distinctions, Strength trait and her Specialties. In general, I tried to make her more of a team player than her cousin. Her Strength is rated lower in the unofficial Marvel Wiki. For her specialties, I swapped out Business Expert for Crime Expert — to better reflect her time with the Atlas Foundation criminal syndicate. (I will be posting Milestones separate from Player Datafiles.)

More later. Stay tuned.
