Note: The original concept behind Spawn’s Sorcery was that he was given a finite amount of power to use and once it was up he would go back to hell. It isn’t how it turned out later on so here is a current version on how Spawn uses his power.

  • Body Armor 3D
  • Heal 3D (Mastery, Limitation: Spawn only, Limitation-Duration: Permanent)
  • Gift 5D (Brawling, Martial Arts or Body Armor. Limitation-May only Gift one of the specializations each round, Spawn chooses which ability to amplify at the beginning of the round. Limitation-Singularity: May not use the Gift power in the same round as the Natural Weapons power.)
  • Natural Weapons-Chains 4D (Mastery-doesn’t suffer multi-attack penalty for using his chains for one additional attack per round. Limitation-Singularity: May not use the Natural Weapons power in the same round as the Gift power.)
History: (From

Spawn follows the after-life of Al Simmons, once the U.S. Government’s best operative, who was betrayed and murdered by his own men — only to end up in Hell. There he made a bargain with the Devil: in exchange for the privilege of returning to Earth to see his beloved wife, Simmons must become a HellSpawn, bound to lead Hell’s Army in the upcoming Armageddon.

Unfortunately, the flawed contract returns Simmons to Earth five years after his death, and he discovers that his wife has married his best friend. Simmons, now known simply as “Spawn,” finds himself stuck in a Purgatory of paradox. Although obligated to do work for the Devil, his still-human soul compels him to become a better man than he was and to make the Earth a better place than it is.
