(Crossposted from official forums.)

Brigade, the Multi-Man, is a Super Hero with a unique power: he can split his body into multiple copies. Beyond that, whenever he makes a new copy, it develops its own powers, completely independent of his own super powers.

Well, the description has been reworked and paraphrased a few times, but essentially, Brigade is a "duplicating" superhero concept created by Smackwell, and played over the years by dozens of others. I've recently made my own Brigade dupe in the past week (after years of having a costume file sitting there) and I admit I've since been somewhat driven to see this character brought back out of relative obscurity.

The character is open to be played by anyone, and is roleplayer-friendly. Also, it's almost Brigade's 10th anniversary: the original forum thread was created back in 2010!

Anyone playing a Brigade can join his dedicated Super Group, "The Multi-Man", and those already in the SG should be able to invite! There are some things you will need to keep in mind, however:
* The character must be named Brigade. No exceptions, no cheating!
* Look the part by using this costume file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1m4qfm7bUI2MRFiarSPiZgvmxmOXtw7cw/view?usp=sharing (Unzip and place the file in your CO's Screenshots folder. The bracers and boots are part of the "Legacy Power Armor" costume set from the Zen store, so it's recommended that you purchase if you don't have it!)
* It's also recommended that when you are teaming with other Brigade characters that you use the official costume.
* Since Brigade generates different (random?) powers for his duplicates, you are welcome to use any archetype or Freeform build you wish.

With the basic spiel out of the way, since April 1st is coming up in just over a week from this post I'd like to see if we can get a "Support Brigade Day" set up for the Multi-Man's impending 10th birthday! That'll probably be a separate post elsewhere though, so look out for it!

A bit of an addendum here, since I imagine the RP community would be more into this kind of thing:

I had a fit of inspiration one night and ended up making a PDb page for Brigade as well, which you can see here. There are a few blanks and such since Smackwell really didn't have too much of an official "lore" in mind (since it was originally made just for him to get used to teaming up with people), but I will at least take suggestions for the growing list of super-powers a duplicate can have: just post your ideas in the Brigade article's talk page and I'll consider adding them!

Do we have a save-file of the Myriad costume, the chick-version of Brigade, anywhere?
For those folks that don't want a guy. :P

Smackwell sent me a veritable myriad of costume files for her... OK, well, all of three-- with the caveat that he didn't remember what was decided on for the official costume. I haven't gone through them though, so I'll need to get back to you on that one.

XD fair :D

I think if you post the official one from the games save file on a primus page people can snag it to use, can't they? I know that used to work.
