Lore (Cosmic Enforcers RPG)

Lore

(Ronny Fisk)


Context

Cosmic Enforcers was a 1995 super-hero tabletop role-playing game. It had an interesting mix of superhumans and gritty sci-fi. However, like most super-hero RPGs of that time, it had a hard time gaining traction. Furthermore, the publisher had to close after but one supplement was published.

Here’s a DC Heroes RPG conversion of one of the characters, as a hat tip to Cosmic Enforcers.

Powers and Abilities

Ronny is a big tough guy, but he is mentally retarded. His only noteworthy skill is that he’s used to handling a sword.

The magical longsword, Lore, boosts Ronny’s physical abilities to superhuman levels and does all of the thinking. Furthermore it has a few mystical/psionic  powers, a powerful personality, lots of occult knowledge, and can impart superb swordsmanship skills to its recipient.

Given its intelligence and tactical skill, Lore leads the Posse.


Description

See illo.


History

Lore is an ancient magical sword. It has been passed from warrior to warrior since medieval times, but ended up as a display in a museum. The intelligent, wilful sword pondered its fate. It had always been wielded by powerful persons of strong will, and always had been a servant. It was time, the sword decided, to become the master.

One day at the museum came a perfect vessel. Ronny Fisk is a young, big guy with great strength, but he also was mentally retarded. He and the rest of his special education class were visiting the museum when the sword psychically contacted him. Ronny was transfixed.

He came back the following night to steal the sword and live the life it had promised him. Ronny never regretted this. Lore brought him everything he lacked.

The sword, looking for power, needed money. A chance encounter with other superhumans made it conceive a plan. In the troubled, post-war world of Cosmic Enforcers, they could earn mega-bucks as high-powered bounty hunters. The group, called the Posse, became a remarkable success.


Personality

Ronny lets Lore do the thinking, and it is perfectly OK for him to let his body be the vessel.

Lore is an ancient, power hungry entity, but it is not particularly evil. Just consumed with power lust.


DC Universe History

Lore could have been the sword held by the Viking Prince, and later by some contemporary of the Shining Knight, with its abilities slowly growing over the centuries.
