You hear about them on the news. The super heroes who stop villains from melting the world, the super heroes who save burning buses from explodified bridges, even the heroes who save a few astronauts.
You are not these heroes. You are the super powered citizens that no one mentions. You are the one with “lame” powers. Powers like converting any liquid into soda, or the power to produce video game noises. Small, and not noteworthy. You are just trying to make it through life.
The daily life of being not-so-super powered has lead you to go to Supers Anonymous (S.A., Super Anon). That will be your first scene and your get-to-know-one-another-thing-a-ma-bob. This will be the site of a majority of scenes as it’s the only place you all come together.
Character Creation Notes:Your nature should be your occupation (it can be custom but my approval will be tight on those. No being rich, that’s cheating), your strength should most likely reflect your power. Your weakness and sub plot will be left to you. Note your power can be a weakness as well but be warned, that is a slippery slope. Also, no secret identities. You are a normal person besides the power bit.
Gameplay Notes:I’m more of a player than a narrator but I thought this could be fun. So bear with me. Also I REALLY want this to be CHARACTER driven and REAL. So get into it, feel what your character feels. Oh and form relationships! Romantic, platonic, enemy, whatever you want. Just keep swearing in check (you can swear but try to use other words too) and as much as we all love smut, keep it off screen. Kissing, groping might be allowed at my discretion. Depends. Characters can drink but I believe in drunkedness. I reserve the right to request revisions if they act too sober.
The style is, each week at Super Anon, the current chairman will give the group a task to complete in the week before the next meeting. Your moves should be you completing these. They’re weeks won’t line up with RL times. Some will be one scene weeks, some may be a chapter. We’ll have to see! Working with other players per goal is encouraged! Remember: Relationships are key and I’ll reward player interaction.
Heavy role playing focus. Avatar pictures are the only ones I require.
Lastly, we may have scenes where there are no Super Anon challenges but rather the challenges of life. Feel free to team up on these too, realistically.
Setting Notes:Here and now in an alternate generic city. It will be named Metatropeapolis. Yes that is Meta-Trope-Opolis. I’m mocking the stereotypical Metropolis. Backstories can be anything as long as they end with you going to S.A. The mood should be light and sit-comical with splashes of drama.
Places you may include in backstory:
Doomsday Coffee House - Coffee house across the street from Super Anon
Super Anon - More than just a support group, it is also a small business run out of a small office building.
Green Dale Park - A large park about two blocks from Super Anon. It’s big and has a few small carts and vendors.
Hobo Joe’s - A bar next to Super Anon. Not the most “legal” joint around but full of (basically) good people.
Metatropeapolis University - Top notch education and top notch parties are only a short bus ride away from Super Anon and conveniently found in the same place.
Morbread Bakery - A hip little bakery with death and gore themed treats. Their signature items are crumpled little rolls with cherries and raspberries called Wounds. “Morbread Bakery, where the Wounds are always fresh!”
