Silver Age Superhero RTD
« on: July 20, 2019, 06:10:02 pm »

Comic books were a pretty crazy place back in the day. A paragon of truth and justice would have an entire story devoted to meeting a monkey wearing the same costume, or playing amateur baseball, or even taking over the world, none of which are really superheroic activities. And it all goes back to normal by the next issue. Sounds kind of like an RTD, doesn’t it?

Spoiler: Mechanics (click to show/hide)

But before monkeys, or baseball, or world domination, each superhero has to have an origin story. No superhero starts out as an established force, and few games work well without a little testing of the mechanics.

Is your role just to +1 whatever Glass says.
Yep, as ever, I bestow upon Glass the expected +1
I'm gonna say we go with whatever Glass's idea is.

I figure at some point, you're just gonna run outta fucks to give and just off yourself whenever you get hurt at all. It's not like there's any downsides to it. Hangover? Suicide will fix that. Stubbed your toe? Suicide. Headache? Suicide. Papercut? Suicide.

Don't worry too much about the one mistake, Smoke Mirrors. Your character was memorable for all the demonology and story writing.

I’m running a game called Pandemonium. Feel free to check it out.

I'm giving out free hypnosis sessions on Discord. DM for details! I'm always looking for talented and/or bizarre subjects! You'll never know how talented you are until you try!

On another note, Standoff is a game I'm running. Ever want to kill someone with your very own Stand? You've come to the right place.

Ah, whoops. It seems there's been a misunderstanding @Dustan @Shadowclaw @Fallacy. Skills are mundane things like "Detective Work" or "Brawling". The Catalyst section describes what your powers are. The Magnitude stat represents how strong they are. The Precision stat represents how much control you have over them.

So, would it be accurate to assume we can't be an already established hero?
