I am interested in running a Mutants and Masterminds 2E campaign.
My GMing convention will be to provide details of the present situation, and then provide commentary for what's happening in the backside of things. I will then have some spoiler riders that will contain statistics for what's presently happening. I trust that my players won't look at them! For example:
Direction Prompt: ATTN Velvet Spider. You are currently on the hunt for a murderer. Please see text for scene.
The scene of the crime. A police man that let you in before the investigators is known to you. The victim: a woman, by the looks of it. You're told that she met her untimely end when a man approached her, received something from her and then killed her. The method? Unknown. You have a strong suspicion that this is a super-human crime.
Please attach the police man as a minor contact. If you provide a background, please attach a small blurb in your character sheet in the spoiler field and a background of the character in the character sheet thread. You will receive a point of experience for doing so.
You may ask questions freely here without providing any actions. If the question requires a character action, please provide an adequate roll. Remember, the GM always posts at midnight!
You're not supposed to look in here, naughty!
The responding convention would be:
The Velvet Spider took in the situation. She went over to the body. She searched the body, while speaking to the police officer, Sgt. Hoag.
"Did anyone see anything?"
I am rolling a search check. I got a 22.
Can I discern how this woman was killed?
Can you describe the physical shape and description of the woman?
What is she wearing?
Can I find a wallet during my search?
Do I find anything else of importance?
Three points regarding posting conventions. One, please put dialogue in a different color. Two, please separate all queries with two spaces in between. Three, please always put your character sheet in a spoiler. All players should know that only I am able to access spoilers. It's bad form to look in on someone elses spoiler space in this game!Creation
Characters work in Chicago, Illinois, in the United States of America, in the DC Universe.
Characters are heroes.
Characters are 150pp builds.
Players should observe relative statistics with one another. If one player is a martial artist with an ATK bonus of +12, I would prefer that a character without a martial arts background not have a +12. In general, a character with extensive military training has a +6 ATK. What I need everyone to know is, you can have any type of hero, but that hero has to fit in stat-wise with the other heroes.
I like a certain character sheet convention.

I don't need a group of people to start. In fact, I would rather have people just coming into the story in a more... conducive way. This isn't a social club, dammit. It's action from the get go.
I want 4-6 players. The male/female ratio should be at least 60/40. Players that need to depart need to have their heroes depart or they shall face execution (or a more noble death). People are also free to return! I would actually like to have a pool of 10 or 15 players, with people playing whenever they feel like it, with only four or five being active.
Don't be over-bearing about posting. I only post once at midnight. Chill!
Oh. I also don't need a huge backstory. A five sentence paragraph is enough. Just let me know what you want to play and get my okay before you make a character.
I look forward to hearing your concepts! Thanks for giving this a read, anyway.
