Savage Worlds game.

I was just skimming through the forums and looking at various bits and pieces before deciding I would set up my own little recruitment thread. At the moment I haven't got anything concept wise to give to anyone as I'm just looking for interest. I'm planning on running a game based on the Savage Worlds system. As a system it's very simplistic and easy to pick up which is both it's main strength and biggest weakness in my eyes. However, it's this or 4th edition D&D (Unless someone's running 1st or second, and a players handbook is all I need to get playing that is.)
So here's the plan:
I am looking for 3+ players who are interested in playing a game. Medieval Fantasy setting, without the use of magic! If you're interested in this then I will dust off my adventure cap and get writing something worth the players attention and we'll get this thing going.
If not, then we can forget this thread ever happened!

(And don't worry, i'm still all for the Pathfinder Game Philosopher!)

Necessary Evil

So, i will be running the Necessary Evil supplement to Savage Worlds. This module allows the Players to take the role of a Super Villain! The story is as follows;

''The Beginning''
Thousands of years ago, a semi-aquatic species of
aliens called the V’sori fled their dying world and
settled on Earth. They built a great city, dubbed it
Atlantis in honor of their home world, and watched with
wonder the rise of the native “humans.”

''The coming of Ch'thadra''
The V’sori are telepathic creatures, though some
have far more abilities and raw power than others. This
“cosmic unfairness” did not sit well with some.
One of the greatest V’sori scientists was Ch’thadra,
the man who had saved the race by perfecting space
travel. He felt the V’sori should have been more grateful
for his efforts, perhaps even name him King however Ch’thadra felt that he was ignored because of his weak psionic abilities. So he turned to the one thing that had always worked for him, technology.
The first results of his experiment were tragic. Subjects lost their minds, became vegetative, or developed warped
personalities. Then Ch’thadra discovered a way to steal
the psionic energy of every living V’sori and channel it
into his own mind!
The plan worked too well. Ch’thadra became a
monstrous creature with incredible power, but his
machine exploded so violently that it triggered the
destruction of Atlantis itself!
The Atlanteans knew what Ch’thadra had done as
their stolen psyches came flooding back. They attacked
his lab, but the monstrous creature that emerged from
the blasted hole in the ground was far too powerful.
The scientist now had a massive swollen brain, blood red
eyes, and horrible claws oozing with psychic
energy!
Ch’thadra killed dozens, then retreated with as
many minds as he could enslave to the old V’sori
spaceships. Over three hundred Atlanteans vanished
that day, never to be seen again.
When the smoke cleared, the Atlanteans sealed up
what was left of Ch’thadra’s lair and went about
rebuilding their city beneath the sea. In time, they
forgot about him and their lost brothers, it was but
one event in millennia of hardships after all. Eventually, the Atlanteans emerged from the depths, and dispersed among the population of earth, to the extent of interbreeding.

''The Overmind's Revenge''
Ch’thadra did not spend his exile idly. Now calling
himself the “Overmind,” Ch’thadra had the combined
intellect of all the minds he’d once held. As the
centuries passed, he and his minions developed a new
society, super-weapons, and an unimaginable space
fleet. The V’sori conquered the neighboring galaxies
and enslaved all the races they encountered.
One of the races the V’sori encountered were a
meek people brimming with latent supernatural
abilities—the Proteans. Rather than fight, the Proteans
fled. Most were slain, but one ship managed to slip
away to Earth—where they sensed the attackers had
come from.
The Protean ship was damaged in its flight and
crash-landed in Siberia in 1908. The crater it made
has come to be called the Tunguska blast. The
surviving Proteans used their abilities to disguise
themselves as human beings, and lived in a single
remote village near the crash site for several years.
There they prayed to their distant god, who the
Proteans called the Outsider. He slowly
communicated his desires to his chosen people by
dreams and visions: to go forth and multiply. Since
the visions began, the Proteans were haunted by one
strange image that they didn’t understand until
1955—an image of an eight-pointed star. The
obedient Proteans did as they were instructed, and
for nearly a century interbred with humans. The
children of these pairings inherited a portion of
their alien parent’s power, though it rarely
manifested except under extremely stressful
situations.

''The birth of Star City''
One sunny day in 1955, the people of Earth awoke
to find a titanic being standing in the water two miles
off the coast of New York City. The superhero known
as Silver Sentinel rushed off to greet the giant, and
when he was swatted away by the being, retaliated
with his silvery high-energy blasts. The Outsider
fought back, and what happened next was lost to the
roving helicopters above in the massive tidal waves
their battle created.
When the spray finally settled, the Outsider was
gone and Silver Sentinel lay unconscious on a new land
mass that hadn’t existed before. The island was
shaped like an eight-pointed star

''Influx''
The surviving Proteans, ageless creatures that they
were, recognized not only their god, but his sign—the
creation of an island in the shape they had been seeing
in their dreams for nearly a century.
Most of the Proteans moved to Star Island
immediately, and began procreating as their deity
desired. Though the purpose of the island is still
unknown to them, they have faithfully created a large
number of progeny to fill it, many of whom have
developed incredible superpowers when faced with
extreme situations. Most of the superbeings fought for
the good of the world, but many were also selfish
souls who used their abilities for personal gain.

''Setting the Stage''
Of course it started on January 1st, 2013. The first
ships appeared over every major city of the planet.
There was no prelude and no demands. The aliens just
attacked. They were an amphibious race that combined
the nastiest aspects of sharks and crocodiles with an
aggression matched by neither. They were the stuff of
nightmares to most. The people called them “Fins.”
New York became a war zone, Tokyo burned, and
even sunken Atlantis was rubbled and its ruler—the
legendary Aquarian—slain.
Earth’s superheroes fought back immediately. The
fins were terrifying, but no one ever doubted the
heroes would win out in the end. After all, aliens had
tried to invade Earth three times before, and earth’s
defenders had always emerged triumphant.
But the fins possessed advanced technology and
savage bloodlust, so the losses were heavy. Earth began
to worry...

''False hope''
Then came the turn of the tide the people had come
to expect in these epic wars of aliens and supermen.
Advance forces of another alien race arrived in earth
orbit—the V’sori. They claimed to be the long-lost
descendants of Atlantis who had been searching for
their missing brothers and sisters for hundreds of
years. During their quest, they had grown to become
the defenders of the galaxy.
The V’sori claimed the Fins—or K’tharen as they
called themselves—were rampaging mercenaries who
ravaged world after world, but the V’sori had fought
them before and would help Earth against them now.
The world’s greatest superhero, Champion of Alpha
Force, flew into space to meet them. He returned later
and gave a stirring speech that called for humanity to
hold out for just a bit longer. They did, though the
final cost in blood was great.
When the V’sori arrived, the K’tharen fleet rose to
fight them. The alien ships fought a titanic battle in
space, but the V’sori won out, and even beamed the
images of the fleeing Fins to earth.
Humanity cheered their saviors and welcomed the
advanced alien protectors with open arms. Anxious
youths danced in the streets, proclaiming an era of
peace and love. Less trusting commentators were booed
and mocked in the national press. And some
appeasement-minded governments even offered the
aliens the figurative keys to their states.

''Betrayal''
Of course that’s just what the aliens wanted all
along. In every major city, heroes and world leaders
joined together to welcome the aliens. The crowds
cheered as the V’sori ships appeared overhead. Every
superhero, sidekick, president, and even stars of
sports, movies, and music attended these grand galas.
The people of earth cheered as they watched their
heroes greet the alien saviors on the news networks.
The cheers turned to screams when the V’sori ships
opened fire on the gathered throngs. Moments
afterward, the K’tharen warships returned—servants
of the V’sori.
Champion was standing before the cameras when
the V’sori hit. They knew his weakness—radiation—and
targeted him with a concentrated beam of energy that
turned the hero into a pulpy mass. Massive death rays
then swept over the gathered throngs, slaying
thousands of heroes, officials, generals, and innocents
in moments. Within 30 minutes, the unthinkable had
occurred. Earth’s greatest heroes were dead and its
leaders vaporized.
The aliens had won.

''A New Hope?''
Soon, televisions and radios around the world
carried an announcement from the admiral of the
V’sori fleet. Earth was now under the control of the
V’sori Empire. Resistance would be met with death.
The V’sori Empire wanted Earth’s resources. They
needed a way to study our defenses, and then take
them out with a surprise strike of surgical precision.
They succeeded flawlessly. They claimed destroying
more of our infrastructure and our people was
counterproductive to their goal, gaining a new selfsufficient
source of raw resources.
The V’sori have placed Governors in charge of the
former nations of Earth. The invaders and their Fin
servants are now commonplace. There isn’t a single
government left to oppose them, and they feel they
have nothing to fear from Earth.
But they are wrong.
Earth’s heroes are dead, but there are other beings
with extraordinary abilities on our planet.
They are supervillains. And they are a necessary
evil. (Hohoho!)

This is where you come in. Super Villains who are needed to stop this disaster. What will your powers me? Super strength? Speed? The ability to control minds? If you can think it, it can be done.

Savage Worlds, and by extension Necessary Evil is a very simple system and I would love to be able to run a game with a few of you inn mates. If you're interested, just drop a concept here, and i'll get to you. I'll help you build a Villain and since it's a PbP I'll do all the rolling. You can then focus on roleplaying and teaching these aliens not to mess with your Playground!

Anytakers?

Optimism

I'm going to assume that I've had no responses because people don't have the time, or are apprehensive about playing a new game. Therefore I will play with myself, making a party of 5 characters that you good people can take control of at any point. I will post stats soon, when I have more time.

Meanwhile, Phoenix knew she herself had no power to fight, but if she could find a group of heros... or villains... who would accept her aid, she could find him again. At least, until the aliens got her.
