This is a game less about super powered brawls between heroes and villains, but about the perspectives of those suddenly possessing powers in a world that has yet to experience metahumans. About what they do with those powers, how they protect themselves from being hunted, exploited, or experimented on, be it for fear, research or greed.
This is a game to replace my ill-fated Vigilantes game from GR, and as such the remaining players from that game already have an in (still need to make acceptable characters though!), but I am looking to recruit a few more.
The game is M&M 3e, PL 12 with 200pp.
- Non combat skills are 3:1
- Damage may be Str based or Dex based
- Each point of Int counts as a free pp worth of skill points
- Each point of Pre grants a social-based Advantage
- I am open to consideration on custom Advantages
- Impervious works like 2e
- Time, Space past rank 1 and Dimensional past rank 1 movement powers are banned
This is a higher power game more about the characters personal growth rather than mechanical growth and progression. As such, I want people to build powerful and as close to "complete" as possible. Characters will still earn towards things through play rather than generic pp rewards (though those will still happen, just less frequently). So if a character decides they want to go study law, then they'll start earning skill points in expertise law specifically. Powers can be trained to be stronger or earn alternate effects, etc through use and stunts.
Characters must be metahumans and have a base appearance of being human. Activation of powers can of course have visible physiological changes, but when powers are inactive, characters should be largely indistinguishable from other humans.
Magic doesn't really work for this setting, nor do alien or extradimensional influences. Characters will have a shared origin for their powers, that being an event that leveled everything around them, leaving them mysteriously unharmed. This event happens in a singular place where all the characters happen to be at the same time, in the Canadian Okanagan (It's where I live, gives me a better frame of reference for places)
Lastly, due to a tumultuous work situation that is working towards resolution, this will be a slower recruitment. Not likely to start really picking before the end of June, but I'll be as active as possible for answering questions and reviewing characters.
I think that's all.. Any questions?
