Default Super fantasy Heroes

My friend will be running a super hero themed Gurps game soon and he said that we can choose a fantasy race if we want. I'm thinking about a gnome whose powers are based on what type and what flavor of candy he eats.

I'm not sure of what super power to give to each one, so I look for help.

Candies and flavors are:

Blue raspberry loli pops

Strawberry puffs

Lemon Drops

Cherry Drops

Chocolate Bars

Pop Rocks

Gummie worms

Gummie Bears

Peppermints

Jawbreakers


I don't know if this helps but he is giving us 900 points to play with and the candy is free but the powers will be 2 points each. If you have any other candies that would be a good idea please let me know.

I probably should have said this before but each part of the candy counts. It's his rule.

Each power only costs 2 points? With a 900-point budget?

Milk Duds: User gains Neutralize vs other superpowers (or possibly just against candy-themed powers, but of any source, if the GM thinks that's going to be a thing in the game).

Interesting. May I add this is my first GURPS game? I have a habit of breaking the game; whenever we play a Table top RPG within; the confines of the rules so I think he's trying to stop me from becoming too powerful.

At 900 points with all powers costing 2 points each, one could become a literal god. The nice thing in GURPS is the GM Veto rule for proposed powers of extreme munchkinism.

So basically what you are saying is that he screwed himself over?

Yep. 900 points works for Supers, but, powers should cost their actual value. Requiring you to actually eat candy to activate them is a nice limitation, but, being able to do fancy awesome things should cost more than 2 points.
