Justin OOC Posted May 20, 2019 Share Posted May 20, 2019 1945 changed The world in so many ways. There'd always been rumors of superhumans before then. Legends and myths people would say, they weren't real. Those who said this, are wrong. They just weren't as common as they are now. That's not to say the world is overflowing with people with special abilities, but they aren't hiding so much anymore, indeed, more than a few cannot hide who they are, or what they have become. Technology advances ever onward, and along the way produces new and strange creations along the way, and some that are uniquely powerful and dangerous. The world at large still thinks of Magic as fake, the sort of show that people use to draw attention to themselves. True magic exists, and it is powerful. The harnessing of the Atom, the exploration of space, these drew the attention of Other spacefaring races, and while humanity at large still remains unconvinced they exist, There are certainly those who know otherwise. Not all who have come are friendly, mostly they simply react to the antics of humanity with amusement, and some disdain. What most separates this world from what we know is a sort of Tolerance for Vigilantiism. The public sees their heroes taking down badguys, fighting the Good fight, and they cheer. Few know real details of the Agency behind the scenes that's actually regulating things. Assessment and Emergency Global Initiative and Security, or known simply as the AEGIS agency is one that carries the primary backing of the United States, as well as many First world Nations, and it is solely responsible for regulating the activities of the Metahuman population. For every scene of a Hero taking down the badguy that gets play in the news, there are five instances of AEGIS agents doing the same that never see the light. Everyone knows AEGIS exists, and only the unwise garner their attention. AEGIS has access to nigh unlimited funding, and the bleeding edge of technology. All of this serves to let AEGIS see the big picture, and react at the Strategic and Tactical levels, Often working with the various heroes. Now this is where you all come in. You may be any sort of hero, save Alien. You must have a form that is looks completely human. You may have any sort of powerbase, though I reserve the right to say no to anything I think will not fit this game. This game is meant to resemble Marvel, let's be honest, AEGIS is SHIELD. Don't expect me to follow it precisely, or to not put an homage to the comics or movies we've all come to enjoy over the years. I intend for us to have fun with this, and will probably be going fairly rules light on it. -----------------Chargen rules------------------- You may choose your origin p56 those that give bonus powers must be rolled as normal. I am not allowing actual Alien races, if you want to play an angel or a demon, fine, but no outright aliens. What this means in game terms means you cannot trade in your unearlthy origin for 2 other origin benefits. For attributes we'll use the following A La Carte atributes Roll 2d6 8 times, dropping the lowest 2 and assign these to your attributes Powers Atts beyond 6 don't count as powers (you are allowed 1 att beyond 8 free, any beyond that will be counted as a power. I am giving you all 4 powers. 1 of these, you get to choose what it is. All 4 will require rolls to determine how powerful the abilities are. Specialties I will allow you to choose your 3 specialties (nothing can be +3) Qualities choose 3 Determination All PC's start with 2 Determination Please post your interest here. We Will be using Orokos for the die rolls, so include the links in your character submission PM, please. We will not be starting as a team, but with the assembly of said team. What this allows is a chance for me to offer you all +1 to any stat on your sheet (that is in a stat less than 10) for an origin fiction. If you choose, you may collaborate with another player and write together and it will count for both of you. This +1 can only be earned once. My plan is to begin the game officially on May 31st, making May 30th the cutoff for character and origin submissions. Once I have 3 character submissions, I will create the game, and a character profile thread. If all character profiles and fictions are posted by the cutoff, I will award an additional +1 to everyone. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
