Atomic RPG System Character Focus:
In the Atomic RPG System, a Devoted character is driven to excel in a very narrow field. The devoted character has one focus and it is more powerful than characters of other focuses. Devoted characters are good at one thing at the expense of opening themselves up to major vulnerabilities.
Atomic RPG System characters with a Devoted Focus are often Combatants, although a Devoted character can be of any Archetype.
Devoted Characters are Specialized
Devoted Characters are Specific
Devoted characters spread their abilities across only two Disciplines. A Devoted character’s Primary Discipline is more powerful than any other because they are wholly focused on it. This power comes at a price: the character’s Secondary Discipline is weak and they don’t even have access to a Tertiary Discipline.
Devoted characters can have many reasons to choose to be Devoted, but usually it comes from a desire to be the best at one thing. Devoted characters usually have fewer Powers and are not very good at handling anything outside of their chosen path.
Devoted Character Power Points
Devoted characters in Atomic have the most Power Points in their Primary Power Pool than any other Character Focus. However, their Secondary Power Pool is the same as a Focused Character, which is low. Devoted characters do not have any Tertiary Powers.
Devoted characters end up having a few very strong Powers along with a couple smaller Powers they can use as “backups”. These characters are usually very good at their chosen path; however, they are not good at handling anything that is not within their chosen path.
Choose a Character Focus of Devoted if you want your character to have very strong Powers at the expense of more varied Powers.
Examples of Devoted Characters

These are just a few examples of Devoted Characters, but there are many more combinations that can be used.
