Hey everyone! Out of a dare, I’m not putting together a one-shot or an RPG session set in the world of Blizzard Entertainment’s new IP: Overwatch.

As to be expected form Blizzard, the lore and backstory of Overwatch is fully realized, and this opens up quite the opportunity to run games in it from a Tabletop RPG perspective. Given the fact that Overwatch’s characters range from soldiers, to scientists to oddities, it seems that a Superhero or Generic RPG would be a good choice.

Seeing that I’m working on this as just a one-shot, I’ve opted to use the excellent OVA: the Anime Roleplaying Game from Wise Turtle Publishing. It’s a neat game with simple enough mechanics, but have options broad enough to pull off all of the game’s characters. Today I’ve put together a character sheet for Overwatch’s “mascot” character, Tracer.

Code Name: Tracer
Real Name: Lena Oxton
Age: 26
Nationality: English
Occupation: Adventurer
Base of Operations: London, England
Affiliation: Overwatch (formerly)

Agile +2
Attack +3
– Pulse Pistols (Ranged: +0)
– Pulse Bomb (AoE +10, Ammo: 1 Shot -15)
Evasive +3
Teleport +3 (Self-Only)

Bizarre Appearance +1 (Chronal Accelerator Harness)
Code of Conduct +2 (Overwatch Mission / Vision)
Focus +3: Chronal Accelerator Harness
Focus +2: Weapon Pulse Pistols
Overconfident +1
Rival: Widowmaker +2
Wanted +2 (Talon)

Health 40
Endurance 40

If you’re curious to check out the system behind it, OVA is available in PDF from DriveThruRPG for only $15.00
