Design notes

Items in the {squiggly brackets} should be ignored if Underdog is being played in a “funny-animal” campaign. These items are here to simulate UD in a “real” world setting, which is where I’m gonna be using him.

Omni Power is to imitate the fact that the writers of the show seemed to give him a new super power in just about every episode. And, it didn’t always work, so I gave him the activation roll. The example of the X-ray Vision not working actually happened in one of his very first adventures. He set the wall on fire and never did get to see through it.
