Dave ST Posted June 4, 2013 Share Posted June 4, 2013 The Proposition: An Open World (OW) Mutants and Masterminds 3e gaming forum where all Story Tellers and writers on RPG Post can assemble for collaborative storytelling. Any Storyteller who wished to start an adventure (not a game world) may do so simply by asking for interest and assembling a number of heroes (players) to work through that adventure. ,, The forum will have a structure similar to WoD:A, with three moderators that oversee the game world to make sure things do not get out of hand or that characters remain balanced. ,, What if the ST becomes unavailable? Then another Story Teller jumps into the adventure and takes over until 1) the original Story Teller returns or 2) the adventure is completed. ,, This allows us to constantly keep things in motion without weeks of delay a sort of spontaneous method of story telling. ,, I don’t have notes, or concepts of what the other ST was trying to accomplish. Make do. I’m not sure where it’s written that plots have to be super secret affairs where no one ever can no what’s going on. C’mon, we all sit down to movies now-a-days and know the needing before it starts. We’re there for the ride. This should be no different. ,, Read the fiction, PM the original ST, make some effort to understand the story a bit, then just go from there. We, as STs should be supporting one another. If the guy was using giant robots, cool, use some more giant robots, set up a centralized core for the AI to be broadcasting from, etc. Don’t take it from giant robots to suddenly an alien invasion from another dimension simply because you don’t like giant robots. ,, You’re asking people to put their own ego aside and work together… on the internet. I know, and I’ve given people way too much credit in the past. I hope this proves differently. ,, The Series (Pg 212, M&M 3e Hero): ,, Scale: Global – At the start I’d prefer it be global and, over time as more concepts and character progression continues broaden the game into any direction we see fit, perhaps universal or even muliversal. Setting: Modern – This is iffy. A modern setting is good, but lets face it the entire array of super tech you guys can have as Supers is obviously futuristic. The default setting is Modern. Style: Greyscale – The essence of both light and dark brought together. This is because different STs do it different ways and this is the easiest way to cater to both aspects. I will say this though: while your character doesn’t necessarily have to be ‘good’, they can’t be a villain. At the core, unless you are playing a villain, your PC must be heroic. ,, The Characters: ,, All characters must be Heroic. Basically that means you can not play a villain, but your PC is not required to be ‘good’. Sometimes heroes have to do the wrong things for the right reasons, and that’s fine, but a PC who is constantly committing acts of villainy will be treated as such. ,, The game will be a generic PL10, 150PP game. Aside from that, anything goes. You can be an alien, a God, a regular guy bitten by a radioactive God who becomes an alien, a super soldier, a normal person like batman with no super powers, just gadgetry. ,, What are you using for guidelines? Green Ronin. Simply put, I’m looking at all the material they’ve made for M&M 3e, specifically the DC material and the pre-generated templates. Your PC should fit, within reason, into those guidelines. ,, You hate Attractive and I feel you’ll be unfair. I’ve reviewed all the material and I know that players love their pretty PCs. Using the benchmarks provided by the source material all I ask is decent explanations as to why you feel your PC is so pretty. ,, Black Canary (Pre 2, does not have Attractive) Wonder Woman (Pre 6, Attractive 1) Zatana (Pre 4, Attractive 1) Catwoman (Pre 4, Attractive 1) Cheetah (Pre 3, does not have Attractive) Circe (Pre 4, Attractive 1) ,, Those are the highlights of the DC characters and all of them are drawn with the same lips, hips and tits. Granted you will not be making DC characters and this isn’t the DC universe, but they make for a great way to judge and assess how much is too much when it comes to players abusing the rules or playing a numbers game. ,, If you have a great reason why your PC is seven or ten times more attractive than a God… have at it. If you can’t or your reason is just an excuse, then please, go in a different direction. ,, It’s hard to make an M&M 3e character. I know. I’m not good at it either. Use one of the pre-generated characters in the book. That’s why they’re there. ,, What about Overlap? What about it? Unless a concept is practically identical, there’s not reason to worry about it. Players should compliment each other in the field but there are more than one Armored Suit out there and more than one Paragon and more than one Powerhouse. ,, This is the beginning.
