The basic idea I have for this game, if there is enough interest for it, is that a group of super-heroines have found themselves blackmailed by a villain with dark secrets from their past, information on their secret identities, and so on.  The heroines could be either an official team, or just loosely affiliated.  The game would be high in smut, with a plot focused on them trying to protect the city, but at the same time being ordered into comprising situations, and even forced to commit crimes.

It would use Mutants and Masterminds 3rd Edition.  I'd like a core group of 1-4 heroines.  I would also accept 0-2 heroes, who would probably be being blackmailed separately from the heroines (and used against the heroines.  I'll admit I don't enjoy playing a dom to a male, so that would only be an option if there was a villain player who was willing to), and 0-2 of the villain's henchmen. 

It would be the basic PL10 with 150PP.  It would probably be NC-Exotic, though Extreme is possible if enough people were interested. 

Would anyone be interested?

I'd be very interested in a game like this, it sounds like a great idea.

I have a couple of character power ideas for just what she might've done that's so bad, I'm thinking mind control right now.

Jaded, you are an endless font of incredible ideas. Please consider me interested. 

I understand if you want a chance to game with others of course.  : )

This does sound interesting; I think I have the M&M core book from one of the editions around here somewhere. I'll have to see if I can dig it up and see if it's 3rd edition.

I could be interested, if it stays well away from cannon-look-a-likes, but I don't know a thing about the system. *sighs*

  Blinkin, mutants and masterminds core mechanic is derived from d20.  You'd pick it up fast.  Essentialy, you play the whole game with a single 20 sided dice.  THe only rolls you'll ever make are skill checks, attack rolls, and saving throws. 

  No hit points.   You have a toughness save to resist damage. 

  Now, character building is a little more complicated.  This is basically a comic book GURPS.  If you get your hands on the heroes handbook, I also recommend the Power Profile.s  They make character generation MUCH easier.  (Which makes them a good GM tool too!)

If you don't have the books there is an srd for 3rd ed: http://www.d20herosrd.com/

It's been a while since I last looked at it, but I remember the system being fairly straightforward.

The book I had was the core for 2nd edition. Nice to see there's an SRD, I love the PFSRD to pieces; it just makes looking stuff up so much easier.

Character generation is always the hardest part. I have an old 2nd 10 | 150 character, but she's... She's Raven from the Teen Titans cartoon. I was young and naive!  :-[

Count me intrigued and begging for the chance to play. I have a character concept that can easily go either light or dark side. If you have the space, my young woman works best from the protagonist side, but could be a very fun antagonist as well.

Thanks for the SRD site, it'll help me figure this out.

I'm thinking a little about a "dark" heroine, in that her powers would center around shadows and manipulation of shadows. Unless someone else wanted to use that idea.

*chuckles* 

I have a LOT of ideas, some I've used before and love to revisit, others are new. 

What jumps into my mind for this story is a girl with ice powers--and possibly a little bit of majo shojo (magic girl) flare. 

Unless, of course, this story can handle just a little bit of silly.  in which case I'd LOVE to play my Comic Book Girl.

Well if the entire team is some form of elemental, light and dark totally count, I'll probably swap from mind manipulation to lightning. Though either way I'm planning on playing a grayer hero morality wise, at least she was in the past when she got into some sort of trouble.

I always like playing lightning specced characters, but the chance rarely comes up.

I'm thinking something like this:

I think I'll call her Lady Radiance, or something along those lines. I think I'll put a heavy dump of her points into moving at light speed and shooting lasers; maybe something like a Glass Cannon in combat.

Over confident, boastful, maybe a little bit arrogant in a kind of buying-her-own-hype sort of thing.

I am having some trouble thinking up a good 'dark secret' for her though. Suggestions?

Always nice to make friends :P

I'm thinking that it might be an Alternate Form; I like the idea that she has a human shape where the lines are just tattoos, but on the other hand I'm sort of thinking of going with an origin along the lines of... she's an Outsider and her 'dark secret' that she's being blackmailed for/with is something like her True Name; but it's a work in progress.

Very new to the site, but interested, if possible.  Quite familiar with M&M.
 
One notion I've had: Think about being a Batgirl-type superhero.  You dress up in a tight costume (sometimes taking your clothes off to change in an alley), wrestle with strange men and women (sometimes also wearing skintight or skimpy costumes) and crawl around on rooftops, peeking through skylights to find information.  You can't tell any "normal" people about this, which really limits your social life.  And if all your most exciting contact is with perverse, strange people, then you might start to get perverse and strange yourself.

The blackmail might become a convenient justification for cutting loose, in time.

A Batgirl-type might have had a lesbian tryst with a Catwoman type, who took pictures, as one idea.

Or a sorceress who had to deal with a demon or other sorcerer/sorceress, giving up part of her soul to get out of a sticky situation... and the demon might be working through a local crime lord or super villain, for local blackmail goals.

So I'm pretty sure I'll go with the telepath/mind controller. Someone who made a few major mistakes when she first came to her power that she's been trying to atone even though she really wants to continue doing it.

She's a pretty serious girl that's used to hiding in the background/working from the shadows since her powers only give her the ability to dodge attacks from people well, no additional durability or strength that makes fights sort of tricky. If we are a team she'd probably want to play mission control or infiltrator as much as she can.

The blackmail is probably forcing her to act much more openly than she feels comfortable with.

Also, D12 seconding the appreciation for the awesome picture. A dangerous, but rare, weakness might make a good dark secret if you go with the Outsider idea. True name could be that or maybe a means of attack.

<--is rolling on the keyboard, laughing at the top of his frontal lobe at the accidental and utterly perfect play on names he made! 

This is the character audition I'm working on: 

Mary Robinson

Name:         Mary Robinson
Build Points:      150/150
Concept:         Comic Book Girl
Faith:         Mormon
Origin:         Mary has no clue how or why it happened, but for 9 months now she has found herself responding to danger--especially threats to the innocent--by turning into characters from the racy comic books she writes.  She then retains the form, powers, and personality of these uninhibited character ‘til the next rising of the sun. 
   This has lead to a lot of blushing… 
Race:         Human
   
Age:            24
Birthday:         11th of February
Gender:         Female
height:         5’5”
Weight:         135lbs
Measures:       36”D, 26”, 32”
Skin:         Fair and creamy. 
Hair:            Raven black, usually kept in a long french braid. 
Eyes:         Beautiful, vivid sapphire, usually muted by her glasses. 
Style:         Whenever going out, Marry usually wears the same conservative but elegant dresses she does when doing missionary work. 

So, I randomly asked some people for a good name for a girl born in a Mormon family.  Mary was suggested--for Mary the mother of Christ.  I replied that was more a catholic name, but then I flashed on Marry Magdeline--whom it is entirely likely Jesus married at the wedding at Caina, but is usually combined with the prostitute who washed Jesus's feet...  Cause we can't have the son of god get married like every other man in his culture! 

I decided this was entirely appropriate for a a girl who changes forms between a conservative, compassionate virgin and a variety of playful wenches. 

I missed the point completely! 

So, Mary is a shy and repressed conservative Mormon, but she writes about uninhabited, wild and sexy comic book heroines.  They're an outlet for her own repressed sexuality and other wild aspects. 

So, what do you call it when a writer inserts themselves into their own stories, with superpowers, and the freedom to do the things they can't do in real life? 

Her supper power is that she's a Mary Sue!!!

I think I will go with the Outsider idea; drawing some inspiration from Meridia have her be something like an actual demon that abhors evil/darkness in all it's forms. (Still working on what she hates)

Thinking maybe she got summoned by some unlucky dark wizard whom she promptly smote and then; now being free in the mortal world, she goes about smiting other 'dark' beings like criminals & villains so she can get some of that sweet sweet (fan) worship action.

Have her big secret be her true nature/True Name, and other weaknesses be derived from what her true nature is; stuff like, because she's a demon pure iron & holy water wound her, while her True Name can be like... spoken three times to compel her to appear, or deliberately mispronounced to stun or maybe impair her.

Some stuff on my character idea...

Blitz-Beine (German for "Lightning Legs")
Real Name: Angelika Marie Gauss
Date of Birth: 28 May (age 17)
Place of Birth: Munich,  Germany
Height: 5'4"  Weight: 116 lbs.
Hair: Blonde  Eyes: Blue
Measurements: 34C-24-35

History: Angelika Gauss is the daughter of a Bavarian State Police officer killed in the line of duty when she was very young. As a child, Angelika became interested in gymnastics and had hopes of going to the Olympics. When she was 16, she was involved in an automobile accident when the car she was in struck a power pole. Rushed to the hospital, it was discovered that the exposure to electricity had given her superhuman speed. Angelika was recruited into Spezialjäger ("Special Hunters"), Germany's small but official superhuman team. After a period of training, Angelika was given a costume and the codename Blitz-Beine. Due to the high cut of her outfit's bottom, some members of the German media dubbed her Blitz-Backen ("Lightning Cheeks") much to her chagrin.

Recently, Blitz-Beine was chosen was selected by Germany as a liaison to the United States. While honored to be part of such an international gesture of goodwill, Angelika worries if she is somehow underperforming and is thus expendable. So far she has mixed feelings about her mission. Meanwhile back in Germany, a young reporter has uncovered some discrepancies in Blitz-Beine's origin tale. For one thing, there is no sign of an accident occurring where it is said to have happened. The leadership of Spezialjäger is aware of his investigation and relocated Angelika while they consider their options.

Appearance: Blitz-Beine is a young blonde with long hair she wears braided. She has a small scar on her face near her chin she says is from the accident that gave her the powers she has. Her uniform consists of a sleeveless long-sleeved tunic that leaves her muscular legs bare. It also exposes a great deal of her buttocks, much to the delight of aficionados of female super-heroes. Blitz-Beine has the dubious honor of being voted "Ultimate Ass" according to one popular lad's mag. Her uniform varies in color, usually it is white but she also has versions in green, pink, blue, and black. She wears either a garrison cap or a beret, which gives her something of a military look, and protective bracers on her forearms. She also paints lightning bolts on her legs as a nod to her alias.



Personality: Angelika tries to always come off as a no-nonsense professional. She tends to follow orders from superiors with little question. A big reason for this is that she is a fairly insecure person and doesn't think she is taken seriously. As a result, Blitz-Beine is always eager to please in hopes of getting some sort of validation.

      I have a biomanipulator in mind, limited strictly to personal. Able to control her body and change herself, prehensile hair, produce a tail, claws, fangs, alter joints to increase leap and run speeds. She would work alot as an infiltrator as well as options girl.
