This is just a topic to see if anyone would be interested in a superhero/superheroine/villain/villainess type game. Either side can win, and I'd actually like to see things like both sides winning. Now what happens if a villain or a badguy loses is that they are kept in the Superhero's base of operartions while the police take time to process the paperwork. Then the badguy would be transported to a super prison for super powered beings.
That out of the way, this game will be based in one city, Eden City which is on the East Coast United States, more towards the south. (Like where North Carolina is.) The year will me 2035 and the technology will be similar to that of Batman Beyond. There are people, called preternaturals, that walk around and have had their genes spliced with animal DNA to make them stronger/faster/whatever. This splicing always leaves behind some kind of trace of the animal. For example if someone spliced with a fox, they may end up with a tail, or a little more body hair than usual. (No furries please)
Some people have the treatment of splicing willingly and others had it at birth when their parents decided to make them different. Also, this process is perfectly legal and sometimes encouraged if the baby is known to have some kind of defect. There are other preternaturals in the city, usually known as mutants where they didn't have any splicing done yet they end up with some kind of abnormal ability. Some of these people decide to lead normal lives, some turn to a life of crime, and others decide to become superheros or superheroines.
Eden City was built in the eyes of it becoming the perfect city. Several years after the Perfect City was built, crimes started popping up everywhere. The one Superheroine guarding the city, Eden, (partially named after her) fought valiantly but ultimately fell to the hands of evil. With her gone, the police force could hardly keep up and crime started to over run the city. This is when they decided to call in heros from other parts of the country and around the world to help them protect their city and restore it to it's perfection.
As for powerlevels in this game, I was thinking of having normal powered characters (highly skilled humans) up to a preternatural that could take on one human easily but something like fifteen would be difficult for them to beat. Though that's fifteen without weapons. Anyway that's the power level I was thinking on going on for this game. One last thing, this will be a system/free-form game so that in a fight things will always be played fair, but things like when a person is bound, or there is minor touches, we don't have to roll dice for that.
Actually, I lied, the last thing is the character sheet, which I'm going to post out so that people can start making characters if they're interested. If you are interested, just please post a quick little blurb about you're interest in the game so I can keep track of numbers. When we have enough interest then I'll propose the game be set up by the mods of the board. Without further adieu here is the character sheet.
