“You’re going to make a difference. A lot of times it won’t be huge, it won’t be visible even. But it will matter just the same.” -James Gordon
Heroes are not defined. Heroes are created for the world which needs them. When there is peril, when there is chaos, we the people need someone to save us. This is the birth of an era belonging to the superheroes. People know these men and women to be exceptionally extraordinary. And, at times, these heroes have been called on to protect the world.
Just ten years ago, the group known as S.U.P.E.R. (Superheroes United and Protecting Everyone Regular) was created to stop a disaster. A terrorist organization known as the Seventh Sound had brought what seemed to be the end of times to earth. Old and archaic gods were roaming the earth. Quetzalcoatl decimated the Americas. The Seventy-Two Demons of Solomon ravaged the Middle East. Shiva awoke in India, but destroyed much of Asia. When all hope had seemed lost, the group sealed the ancient deities away, saving what was left of earth.
S.U.P.E.R. now operates as an independent organization, mainly with ties to the United States government, helping any country in need. Seventh Sound was defeated, with only three of the seven members remaining. Those three have been locked away in a special prison, one which is unknown to all except for the heads of S.U.P.E.R.
The chairmen of S.U.P.E.R. are three prominent heroes of the world.
The first belonging to Blizzard, a scientific genius from North America. His inventions really revolutionized the world as we see it today. Being able to create a machine which generates clean water in almost any environment has helped many nations live longer and prosper after the apocalyptic times. Blizzard’s own ‘powers’ come from alien technology he had found in the Arctic. With the pieces found, Blizzard created works of marvel. Guns which could freeze an enemy in an instant. Armor which resisted much physical power. He was a hero in science and a hero in life.
The second belongs to Sir Arthur, a hero who comes from Europe. Namely Britain. Though he no longer holds a body, Sir Arthur was brought back to ‘life’, this being a loose term, as a spirit possessing a full plate of armor. Sir Arthur, as many know, was only meant to be a fable. A tale of a king who united Britain against the tyranny of their nation. Yet his spirit is real enough to come out and attack the enemies of his sovereign nation. With the help of his sidekick, a young wizard named Merlin, Sir Arthur works best in his attempts to stop Morrigan and her magic.
The last spot belongs to a hero named Mystic Dragon. Belonging to Japan, Mystic Dragon was a martial artist blessed with power from the Shinto Gods. Though his martial style, Mystic Dragon gained the ability to manipulate the five elements, giving his own techniques a much bigger punch. His own powers have been used to fight off the giant beasts which emerge from the polluted waters of the Japanese shorelines. Mystic Dragon is a force to be reckoned with, and as such, he is always looking for an opponent worthy of his skills.
The opposites of these chairmen, the remaining members of the Seventh Sound, were seen as some of the greatest threats to mankind.
The first member, known as Plague, was a man who served as the head of affairs in the Middle East. His powers are different. Plague had the ability to turn his entire body into a swarm of insects which would then begin to devour their opponents. His own backstory is something tragic. Plagues parents were caught in the crossfire of a conflict between the United States and a few terrorist cells. Though his family was uninvolved, Plagues mother and father died in an explosion. What led him to Seventh Sound can only be described as a bitter hatred for the world. No one cared for what happened to his family, and no one cared for Plague when he was left alone.
The second member, known to be the right hand of the organizations leader, was known as Lolita. Lolita appears to be a young girl but is, in fact, over nine hundred years old. Her longevity has yet to be explained to anyone. Her own powers come from strong magic within the world. Lolita claims her past being something tragic. A young girl in France. An older man abducts her. Uses her. Then Lolita learns what she can do, and uses the magic she has to kill the man and everyone around her. No one is sure how Lolita came to be part of the Seventh Sound.
The last member, being the leader of Seventh Sound, is David Cunningham. Our codename for him is the Prophet, but David doesn’t seem to respond to that name at all. David was born with the unique ability to see into the future. Not the distant future mind, nor the close, but rather the entirety that is the future. David became dangerous in this sense, calculating what would and wouldn’t work by envisioning the future with that planned outcome. He saw no end to the coming apocalypse, so David instead worked to create the end of times in hopes that the ancients would spare his life. Being the hardest to catch and detain, David is not someone to take lightly.
Even with these three detained, hushed whispers of the Seventh Sound making a return is a constant. People talk in fear about the rumors being heard. How a man heard another man from his wife say things like the group is reforming. How the people are planning to break David out of the prison to which he belongs.
How the end is upon us again.
And you, as a recruit to S.U.P.E.R., are to go out and investigate the whispers which seem to keep resurfacing. All of which lead to one place: Hidden Peaks, a small town in the Appalachian Mountains of the United States.
You are to stop the rumors.You are to halt the advance.You are to help people.
This game is a self-created superhero universe. Characters should be superheroes or someone with the prowess to take on a metahuman.
There will be plenty of villains for you to take out.
The game will be starting in an office where you and the rest of the team will be debriefed on the mission before heading off to Hidden Peaks.
This will be a smaller group, not looking to make this a huge cast.
Feel free to send in something, and we’ll see where it goes!
