Also a quick question

What's our group's (WE NEED A NAME!) position in this city? I imagine with so many supers we're not exalted but what are we exactly?

A vigilante group? Official guardians of some area? Popcorn salesmen?

Also, the character is done. Running the numbers again then Ill PM you.

hmm

I've been thinking about the legal issues of supers in the world, but I'm thinking about something like a vigilante permits which basically would make you an independent law enforcement group. Kinda like private security.

Lets take the Righteous Guardians as an example. They have this permit, which allows them to interfere with police work, arrest suspects and investigate crime scenes. They are also allowed to keep criminals in their own holding cells UNTIL they can be transported to an actual prison, like Alcatraz II. This permit does NOT allow them to execute prisoners or murder suspects. This permit covers the group as a whole, not individuals, so if a new member joins he gets the same benefits. If a single member breaks the law, though, the whole group could be blamed and lose the permit.

Solo heroes get this permit more rarely than groups. One solo hero who has this permit is Captain Amazing, a very public figure.

The permit insists that the heroes allow a monthly visit from a legal inspector to the HQ.

It is your choice whether you have the permit or not, but if you do have it you can't have the Concealed feature for your HQ. If you don't have the permit, you can assume there will be some legal troubles for the group (if the law can find you).

alright

Important for my backstory/origin.

Is this earth? Did WWII occur?

Yes

This is Earth, or at least one of them. Except for the coming of the supers in the 1930s and some super-related events, this Earth's history is pretty much exactly as you (Players) know it. There were supers in WWII, in Vietnam and most other major events. I have some added historical facts for this game, but none of them change the history of Earth as we know it.

Regarding HQ

I'd prefer it to be somewhere out of the way, but with a sunroof (cat's law... I forget which number: Sun Worship)

In other words, I'd like it to look like just another business building rather than boast 'this is our HQ!'. That way it's not exactly hidden, but at the same time it seems mundane, so will bypass a lot of attention. I call the rooftop though!

Just my thought... and I'm fine with the permit; the less political headaches that have to be dealt with, the better

Not that my character would be the one to deal with them though

Well

How about shrinking it to Large sized, giving it the Living Space feature and say it's the top 5-7 floors of a skyscraper? Not overtly obvious, you can live there full time, and has a beautiful view (or a horrible view if you prefer that).

You still need a name for your group.

Well

For me, to make a name I'd like to know who everyone is. We could just have a generic name, but I'd like a name that fits our lineup. Who's the 'leader', as well? Are they appointed (by themself or otherwise), or do they just end up being the leader? I know my character is out of the question, so I won't even bother suggesting her.

But yeah... if I'm making the name, I need more information first

As far as I know...

Grugg is a German duplicater, Dragonblood strikes fear in others, and Reralae is a cat person who changes appearances every now and then. That's all I've got so far.

Speaking of which; only three players? Jozan has temporarily excused himself, so technically there are 4 players, but there's still room for more if any lurkers find the time and will.

Name ideas

World Defenders
Hero Team
Hero Legue
Super Heroes Inc.

The thing about a name that describes the group is that new recruits and replacements will have a tougher time fitting in. If the team is called Team of Fear-Duplicating Cats it will be hard for a fire-manipulater to feel like fitting in.

As for a leader, that's something you'll have to figure out yourselves.

Hmm

How about something like 'The Justice Brigade'? (testing the waters of what the others feel for)
