Mutants & Masterminds:M&M3E [Cyberwar] Game proposal

Recommended Posts

Joani, I'm also trying to dive back in here. Reading over your suggestions, it seems like the character I tried to play for the first Future Imperfect would be an oddly good fit. Any more spots available?

Everyone is welcomed. Still working on Background details and edit it to postable format. I'm on it but work keeps me busy currently.

,,

Next updates will be an overview of the Corps.

,,

After that I want to provide some general flavour how I imagine and picture the setting (mostly media-links)

,,

Finally I'll be tackling the Submissions and character backgrounds - once those are done and approved I'll open the first threads and we'll dive into the game.

I'm working on Mina's background now that I've scribbled over her numbers to a PM (like suggested). I should be done today before I go swimming (I hope).

,,

Addendum: You'll have a full character Tuesday.

sounds good joani I'm off Thurs- Saturday, and I'd like to chat with you abit about the game, see if what I WANT to do will work within the game before I get into building it. The idea is fun, to me, but it may or may not work.

---------------

I haven't read any of the submitted files, yet. I gave them a short read to get a general feel for the PCs and where I want them to be located/started at.

,,

This game is going to be storydriven but I'm trying to provide as much of a sandbox approach as possible. There are going to be events which affect your decisions but where you go and what you make of them is up to you. I'm not expecting any particular outcome and I am not trying to railroad anything.

,,

However, as this is part of the story some elements may feel like I'm trying to push you in a certain direction. This is both intentional but also a tool for me in order to create atmosphere and a certain "tempo". Emphasis at the beginning is going to be every individual's PCs personal background and everyday live in the setting I created and then slowly move forwards towards the edge until the point of no return is reached.

From then on everything is possible. I'm trying to make this your story primarily and everything that happens around you may add to it or just happen on the sidetrack. You decide your level of participation.

,,

Next on my Agenda is providing more background about the Megacorps which pretty much rule the world and hopefully manage to add some media (mostly pictures) to give you a feel of different aspects of the setting and it's culture.

,,

If you have questions or ideas, please don't hesitate and ask them.

Next update - the other two MegaCorps:

 

Evotech and Neogrid Cyberspace Inc.

 

The other two MegaCorp which complete the worldwide supremacy of the Corporations are Evotech, a Japanese MegaCorp which focuses strongly on genetics and human evolution through cloning and gene therapies, while Neogrid Cyberspace Inc. (NCI) has its focus on the ubiquitous Cybernet which encompasses everything and everyone, not only on Earth, but also to the Moon and soon Mars.

 

Evotech unlike the other two MegaCorps is very traditional not only from the outside but also the way it is managed and governed. They have become synonymous with the Japanese culture and their CEO Yasuke Hinemura is rumored to have found the key to eternal youth. But those are only wild speculations. As is to be expected Evotech is strongly opposed to any Mutant rumors and their only statement so far is related to dedicating part of their research to finding a cure should this phenomenon actually exist.

 

NCI controls and maintains all public Cyberspace and provide some specialist support for the MegaCorps individual Grids. While the other 3 MegaCorps have their own Hosts, Hubs and Grids, NCI guarantees interconnectivity, compatibility and continuity of Cyberspace and its many iterations. While something like net neutrality has been maintained the other MegaCorps created their own internal Grids to keep their secrets hidden, however there has to be one interface with the overall Grid of NCI and that’s a calculated risk and necessity since information and access to it is still paramount in the future.

 

While Lloyd and Lachesis seem to be bigger and financially stronger, Evotech and NCI have a broader reach to the general population. Everyone has to deal with NCI’s services and Evotech is unchallenged leader in human sciences with a strong focus on health which in turn means they cover almost the entire worlds demand on medical resources and technologies. 

 

The 4 MegaCorps work hand in hand occasionally or on certain projects where they share mutual interest, they also have a strong competition running and always looking to hire top ranking Executives, Scientists and Specialists to their own ranks and of course, defend those from possible extractions by other MegaCorps. This could almost be considered a war which is fought in the shadows since almost none of this ever comes to the public eye. News and Media are under strict control and only approved material gets broadcast.

 

Almost all employees of Evotech are Japanese and all other cultural backgrounds represent a minority. But Evotech has understood the necessity for diversity, however their top level Executives are all Japanese, no exceptions here.
