DreamClix 7, Cosplaying in a Ring

Welcome to the all new DreamClix 7. This is where I post ideas and rough dial designs of HeroClix figure based on random Manga, TV Shows and computer games. Also there is a  my 7TV team update (now once a week and tagged onto this post) and in the future I am also plan on doing some house rules and self made Special Effects, Extras and Guest Stars. Oh and update news of changes to the DreamClix Dials Page. Sorry about this being a day late I had problems with work, my mum and computer games.

This week DreamClix ideas are a ghost and a Zombied feat card for Halloween; adding Ghost and Wind to the type chart; Princess Kitana from Mortal Kombat; and a super special cosplay card linked to Princess Kitana (and it is not Jsica as I have already done her).

First off is a ghost for Halloween. In traditional belief and fiction, a ghost is the soul or spirit of a deceased person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance. The belief in manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures. Certain religious practices—funeral rites, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic—are specifically designed to appease the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life, though stories of phantom armies, ghost trains, phantom ships, and even ghost animals have also been recounted. They should have Phasing as a trait, the flying symbol, Incapacitate, Mind Control, Poison, Ghost type and Super Senses. They should have about four clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 10, Attack 9, Defence 19, Damage 1 and Range 6 with three targets. They should not have a team ability and their keywords should be Monster, Mystical and Past.

Below is the new Type table it now includes Wind (aka flying) and Ghost types. I am going to give Valefor the Wind type.

Next is a feat card called Zombied for Halloween. The prerequisites should be that the character does not have the Monster keyword. "When ever this character KOs an opposing character with a close combat attack, heal this character one click of damage and place one Zombie horde token on to the field where the KO'd character was." The next Halloween idea should be a Witch.

Next is Princess Kitana from Mortal Kombat. Kitana (also known as Princess Kitana and Lady Kitana) is fictional character from the Mortal Kombat series, where she is a recurring player and a one-time boss character. She was introduced in the 1993 fighting game Mortal Kombat II. One of the lead characters of the Mortal Kombat saga, Kitana is the princess of the other-dimensional realm of Edenia and the biological daughter of Queen Sindel, as well as an adopted daughter of the evil Emperor Shao Kahn. She also has a role of suggested romantic interest for the series' primary hero Liu Kang and has an evil twin rival named Mileena. Kitana appeared in a majority of Mortal Kombat series' video games and its other media, including the films Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, and the series Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm, Mortal Kombat: Konquest and Mortal Kombat: Legacy, becoming one of the most popular and recognisable characters of the franchise. The character has been given mostly very positive critical reception, often regarded as one of the most attractive women of video games in general (well both Jsica and RAW GM AJ Lee did cosplay as her). She should have Leadership, Charge, Quake, Force Blast, Energy Shield Deflection and Combat Reflects. She should have about six clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 9, Attack 11, Defence 17, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. She should have the Mortal Kombat team ability and the keywords Martial Artist, Ruler and Edenia. The Next Mortal Kombat character should be Mileena.

Next is the Special cosplay card I was talking about that is linked with Princess Kitana. I have been ifing and ummming on doing ideas and designs of WWE characters, but always backed away as the hardness of making each character unique in HeroClix terms, as it is all close combat only and have do you judge Super Strength for them too. However being a big AJ fan and knowing she has cosplayed twice of WWE (and by the sound of it she may have done Final Fantasy characters before as she is a big Final Fantasy fan girl) I have decided to do a cosplay card of her. April Jeanette Mendez is an American professional wrestler. She is signed to WWE, where she goes by the ring name AJ Lee and serves as the General Manager of Raw. Mendez enrolled in a wrestling school in March 2007, where she trained for six months before her first official match. In the following years, she performed for several Northeast-based independent promotions including Women Superstars Uncensored (WSU) as Miss April. In WSU, she was part of the AC Express alongside Brooke Carter and the duo held the WSU Tag Team Championship once. In May 2009, she signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), and was assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), WWE's developmental promotion, using the ring name AJ Lee. In FCW, she was Queen of FCW and FCW Divas Champion, and was the first person to have held both titles. In 2010, she was part of the third season of NXT, having dropped her last name. She became part of WWE's SmackDown brand in May 2011, forming a tag team with Kaitlyn known as The Chickbusters. A self-professed nerd and tomboy, WWE adapted Mendez's comics and video game fandom to her on-screen character, endorsing her as different from the typical women in the WWE and promoting her as the "Geek Goddess". Now to the card. She should gain the Sports Star, WWE Diva and Ruler (due to being a GM). She should gain both the he Divas and GM team ability (instead of the team abilities the character has). Her special should be:
"This character has Earthbound. At the beginning of each of you turns roll a d6 that cannot be re-rolled, on a roll of 4+ this character can use Probability Control and on a roll of 6 if there is at least one adjacent opposing character to this character, deal one click of unavailable damage to an adjacent opposing character. Characters that are dealt damage from this effect gain Outwit." 
Her half price list should be Princess Kitana, Raphael and Kane.

Next is the Divas team ability: This character can use Shape Change, but only succeeds on a roll of 6. Using Shape Change in this way does not prevent the character from using Shape Change through another game effect.

Next is the GM team ability: If a character with this team ability is the target of Outwit or Perplex, roll a d6. On a roll of 5+ the Outwit or Perplex does not work.

Now for this week's Dial Designs which are redesigns of Zombie horde token, Count Dracula and Super Zombie Arena from the Halloween special; May Kanker from Ed, Edd and Eddy; a pilot card for Shinichirõ Tamaki from Code Geasst; and Arthur in Armour from Ghosts 'n Goblins.

Now for the DreamClix Dial Design Page updates. This week I added (or will be adding after this post) the missing One Piece team ability, three Other dials, the Persocom team ability, a missing Capcom dial, updating the Mystics team ability in the Capcom section, adding three missing Code Geass dials and all the new designs from this post.

This week I am doing two 7TV Teams. First off is a new team at 100 ratings which is my Men In Black team that has two Stars.

Next week I will hopefully be my Black Knights team at 150 ratings.

Lastly some 7TV house rules. This time I would like to add a new weapon, Throwing Stars (new for Stars and Co-Stars) and a new piece of equipment, Tower Shield. Basically the Throwing Stars are the some as their enters in the main rulebook under ninjas, but cost 4 ratings for characters. The Tower Shield gives the user a +1 to their Defence value, but this is treated as using a weapon. So a character using a Tower Shield cannot make attack with any weapons unless they have Two Weapon fighting. Next week I will try to redo the Daleks idea. as there was a mistake.

Well that is it for now so until next time, Mecha up.
