NVCPD Threat Code System - "what's your power level?"

*
New Void City is a crazy and chaotic place filled with fighters of every origin and genre, so it requires a police force equipped to handle any threat as efficiently as possible to keep it from being a lawless crater every week. Enter the NVCPD's Threat Code system, a classification formula that each officer can access with various portable devices to properly assess and engage a criminal in battle. The Threat Code system helps determine whether to use firepower or icepower, anti-magic or immobilization tactics, and anything in between. Any fighter that has engaged in public combat, worked for the government, or been a target of the police, have had information of their combat abilities worked into this system. As such the library is ever growing and changing with new information.

The TC is a for-fun classification system I designed with help from otakutaylor with refinement, and several members testing the formula with their characters (as will be seen soon enough). Simply follow the instructions of the formula and you can see how much of a threat the VCPD views you. It's designed in a way that raw destructive power alone is not enough to be considered dangerous; flight and speed, immortality, or genius intellect are given just as much weight, as well as how much damage you've been able to deal while also escaping punishment.

How It Works
A Threat Code takes 4 values (Power, Durability, Maneuverability, Intelligence) and assigns points to each (1-5) depending on the effectiveness of each (note: Power does not relate to only raw destructive power, it can also be used to determine the range of your psychic abilities, for example). The total value is divided by 2, rounded up, and this makes up your TC number, your standard "power level" (1-10) in the eyes on the NVCPD. While this may be enough for the layman, police generally will want more information, and a threat's code also comes with a letter-based code behind the number (P, D, M, I) which highlight which values the threat is especially efficient in. If the threat is a 7-D, the police will focus less on firepower since the threat must have armor, invulnerability or regeneration or some combination, and will instead place their efforts on immobilization. A high threat code with an M means the police will watch out for flight or other means of enhanced transportation and use trap and zoning weaponry. The I is generally considered the most dangerous tag to a threat code, as the smartest villains are always the deadliest.

There are a few more rules with building your character's TC (weaknesses, kaiju stat boost, etc.) that can be found in the link below, as well as the full instructions on how to determine your character's TC and examples from members who helped me test the system out.

About Perceived Threat
The NVCPD's Threat Code system relies heavily on their own intelligence network, public knowledge, and surveillance. It is possible for a particularly powerful character to have a low Threat Code, and sometimes this is actually a good thing as it gives you an advantage when facing police to catch them off guard. If you have never fought, worked for the government or been in trouble with the law, you may not even have a Threat Code in the system. Some civilian characters that are not fighters may have higher than average threat codes because of the potential threat they may possess if they turned to crime (for example, characters that can fly, or have access to powerful machinery, etc.)

Threat Code Cards
Collect 'em all! I've placed in the following Dropbox link a PSD (CS6) and font for you to make your own cards for your characters.

This is for fun first and foremost, but feel free to play with it for comics stories if you desire as well. If you need help figuring out your characters' TCs, I'm available via DM Discord for that

(this is just flavorful, to represent the police understanding of him. he's probably really a 5-3-5-2, and thus 8-PM.)

It's safe to say Karrin filled these out herself. (Added the ++'s for her Citizenship++)

None of the programs I have can edit the text in PSDs, so I had to delete the relevant text and punch everything in manually.

Here's Jessie's


and Kazue's

Disclaimer
I don't think VCPD would be too aware of the fluff boi here, would highly doubt most people would know what he can/does do. This is mostly for fun.
