Prestigious Midvale University, one of the top ranked schools in the United States of America, is known for many things. The school boasts top notch academic programs, a first rate football team, and a lively variety of social and cultural events. Yet the school may be known for one thing above all else: the Multidisciplinary Academic Department, or MAD.
Founded in the 1920s by contemporaries of Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison, MAD was designed as an institution where top minds from a variety of scientific disciplines could work together on groundbreaking research. Generously funded and given access to the latest in scientific equipment, the scientists at MAD pursue experiments which would be dismissed as impossible at any other institution. Their work has brought scientific progress ahead by leaps and bounds, leading to inventions and discoveries which have changed humanity forever.
Of course, not everyone has such a rosy view of MAD. Some see them as a collection of crackpots and cranks, dangerous individuals pursuing projects man was never meant to pursue. Others say the line between genius and insanity can be fuzzy at the best of times. Who’s to say?
One thing is for certain: there’s always something interesting happening at MAD.
This is a Storium for Beginners game. It is intended for players who are new to Storium and will be a fairly simple story which will introduce the mechanics of how Storium is played.
Asking questions is encouraged. If you aren’t certain how something works, ask for clarification in the game’s green room, open lobby, or comment section. Chances are you aren’t the only one with questions.
All player characters should be people working at MAD. The story will revolve around mad-science related hijinks happening at MAD. This will be a fairly silly story with mostly comedic elements.
Nature, strength, weakness, and subplot cards have been provided to give you character ideas. If you want to make a different sort of character, you can make custom cards if you like.
