Prometheans Reboot

So, Innmates, what are your thoughts on metahumans (or, if you prefer more recognizable terminology, "superheroes/supervillains")? Ever wondered what it might be like to suddenly find yourself with superpowers? Ever wondered what you'd do with those powers? Would you use them mostly for "self-gain" or would you take the "with great power comes great responsibility" route, maybe, and go all Spiderman? Would you keep your powers/identity a secret or would you be more inclined to a little less discretion? Heck, for that matter, would you even want the power(s) you ended up with or would it be more of a curse than a gift for you?

Even better question... Wanna find out?

A while back (years, if I'm being truthful) I kind of started running those thoughts/questions through my mind (for probably the umpteen-millionth time since I was old enough to watch Superfriends) and decided, you know, I'd love to see how some of the Innmates might handle the sudden burden of super-powers! To that end (and to get a new game running and mayhap liven the boards up just a skosh), I came up with a little adventure seed that could certainly allow you to explore those possibilities and Prometheans: Genesis was the result... It had great potential, i think, but, unfortunately, mostly due to my own failings at the time, it kind of fizzled out. However, thanks to some prodding (and some thinking of my own), I've decided to reboot the idea and, am looking for further interest.

My plan is to run this as rules-based but to a certain extent "rules-lite" adventure with the possibility of it leading into a full-fledged campaign, and I'm looking for somewhere in the neighborhood of four to six folks who are interested in getting in touch with their inner superhero (or villain). No need to roll stats, pick powers, or anything like that, though... I'll take care of that "behind the scenes" based on the character concepts I get from those that are potentially interested (kind of the way Olan did with character creation in his Zombies in Chicago game)... So, what do I need from you to get started? Honestly, not too much. If you're interested, all I need is for you to hit me with a little write up of who your character is/was before he/she got hit with whatever it was that made them more (or, potentially, less) than human.

Hit me with the character's name (a regular name, not a "superhero/villain" one... we'll get to that in game... maybe), age, physical description, occupation (if any), and run me through a "day in the life" of the character and we'll go from there. Pretty simple, right? Just a few more notes before you run off to get started, though...

  • No "pre-teen" characters, please. Most of the games I tend to run tend to lean toward the "mature" side of things and, as such, I'd prefer not to have to do anything "vile" to small children. Keep your character's age above 16

  • Feel free to start your characters anywhere in the known world... Are you a corporate CEO who spends most of his/her time in New York City? Maybe you're some punk teenager on the streets in London? Could be you're just a community college student in some random small town in Iowa, some random homeless dude in Dayton, Ohio, or, maybe, you're a safari guide in Africa somewhere? Doesn't matter where you start out, really, I've got evil plans to get you all together before things get too crazy. *winks*

  • A list of your character's skills wouldn't hurt, either... hobbies? After school activities?

  • Get creative with your "day in the life" bit... Sure, your Hawaiian surf-bum might not do much but hang out on the beach, smoke a little weed, and surf all day and night, but give me some details, there... Any particular beach? Do you prefer the big waves on the North Shore or are you less extreme and find beaches with tamer swells? Exactly how much weed do you smoke, anyway, and do you get it from one source or do you buy from whoever might be selling? Might not seem like it matters too much when you're writing it up but, trust me, every little snippet you send my way will help me to determine not only what powers you get but how you get them.

  • Timeframe is present day/very near future. Dec 21, 2012 has come and gone with no end of the world as prophesied by the Mayans... Of course, the Mayans didn't really predict the end of the world, did they? They predicted the end of an "Age"... *winks* ... and the dawn of a new one?

I think that covers it for a start-up, anyway. If there are any questions I can answer for you before you start on a concept, just holler at me... either here or via PM... and I'll get back to you as quick as I can.

I've gotten certain interest from two of the original players - Silent One will be reprising her role as Penumbra and Hammer is interested in returning as The Disturbance... Any other takers?

Another quick note, here... this game will most definitely present PvP options depending on how each of your characters reacts to events as they unfold in the game, soooo... something to keep in mind...

yay!

Penumbra is ready - but do you have a copy of her backstory i sent you? Also I talked to Chess and he said he's interested but doesn't want to reprise Tether so he may get back to you about a new character..

My Name is Called ...

I often think about what this Prometheans game could have been and where it would have gone ???

HAmmer, I'm the same as you. My tower that I was using (That had all my info in it) died, so I just have a harddrive sitting on my desk with no way of getting hte info off of it.

Eol- Can I shoot some more ideas about Penumbra your way? Kinda towards what we were talking about the other day?

Did I miss the original game?

I don't remember when you did this before, Eol. I also don't want to plaster my ugly mug across every game so I'm not going to just jump in and be like, "Pick me! Pick me!" Other players should get the chance to participate first. But if it gets to a point where you need a player, let me know.

He had just did the opening posts and had ONE more to go before it fizzled out. that was back in 2012ish.

I cannot wait for more players to be added to the roster - I've been wanting to try out Penumbra since her creation.

Yo. I'll try and work something up tonight or tomorrow, between shifts.

Silent, if you don't hear from my by Thursday night, please come find me and yell at me, because I probably got busy and forgot.

Getting in Character

Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
'Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
Well what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution
'Cause where I live the game to play is compromise solution
Well, then what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! Said my name is called disturbance
I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, I'll rail at all his servants
Well, what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No

@ Brom

Dude, feel absolutely free to jump in if the urge strikes! I'd love to have you aboard!

That said, if there are any "newbies" out there who have been hesitant to join a game or so much as post an intro, I'd love to have any of you, as well... c'mon, step out of the shadows of lurkdom and pop on in to the light of game-time!

Okay... just because I couldn't help myself...

The world in which Prometheans takes place is essentially the Earth we have known for much of our own lives with history diverging from our own in May of 2003 as to be described here!

Yes... given the response I've already gotten, I decided to go ahead and open a game thread with the "introduction/prelude" from the original game. Give it a read, if you're interested... it'll give you a bit of insight into the world and divergent history.

Aaaaand...

...I've tacked up a Q&A thread in order to get a jump on "character sheets" and the like. Those of you whom I know, for sure, are returning with your previous characters (Silent, Hammer) can find your character's "basic" info there, now.

As I get more players (I've left room for 8, and have 3, so far), I'll update those "Confirmed Character" entries. (Chess, I've stubbed Jason in and will update once I've got his power set figured... also, see my PM re: location.)
