Welcome back! I’m still trying to get my head around character creation for OVA, so today we’re looking at another character from Overwatch, Winston the Scientist!

Real Name: Winston
Age: 29
Occupation: Scientist, Adventurer
Base of Operations: Horizon Lunar Colony (formerly), Watchpoint: Gibraltar
Affiliation: Overwatch (formerly)

Gear +2 (Jump Pack)
– Agile +2
– Flight (Unique: Limited to Jumps / Must land at end of movement -5) +2
Focus +2

Attack +3
– Tesla Gun +3 (Ranged 0, Weapon -5)

Barrier +3
Inventor +3
Transformation +3
– Strong +3
– Tough +3

Awkward Size (Gorilla) +2
Bizarre Appearance (Gorilla) +2
Code of Conduct: Overwatch Mission / Vision +2
Focus: Barrier Projector +2
Obsession: Restore Overwatch +2
Transformation Trigger (Insults) +2
Wanted: Talon +2

Putting Winston together was a little trickier than Tracer was. I’m slowly coming to learn how to use the “container” abilities like Transform and Gear which give you a separate pool of points to spend at the cost of making them all vulnerable to destruction or dependent on the same trigger to kick off.

It’s a lot like a simpler version of HERO, honestly and a part of me is happy at the idea of being able to build stuff like this again.

Now who to build next, any suggestions? Two down, nineteen left to go!

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