What Lies Beneath the Fens

Recommended Posts

Rumors have spread throughout the poor folk of the Fens of Freedom City - tales of opportunity to take a chance and grow one's own power to affect their life. One rumor claims that it's a pyramid scheme - a con run by an overzealous fan of superheroes. Another claims that the speaker's friend's cousin actually gained powers by visiting a specific club on the river's edge. A third tale tells of how some people have been gaining fame and fortune for their folks by visiting the club.

 

All stories share some commonalities - that there's a club in the Fens where the proprietor claims to be able to brew drinks that give someone superpowers. What they do with the powers, the rumors say, is up to them.

 

Hello all, and welcome to my literally first attempt to open threads here on the forums, as well as my first attempt to GM M&M 2e in general. The scene has been set - a mysterious and likely dubious club has begun manufacturing superhumans! Possibly. At any rate, the first signs of these superpowered individuals are about to show up - fortunately as many as three superheroes shall be there to prevent the crime that occurs.

 

This is going to be a pretty investigation-heavy plot, so detectives be aware. There might also be horror elements to it, and a couple combats.

 

So, who's interested? Note that the PL is undecided, but is likely to be from 8-10 range, because this is a fairly low-level concern as far as things go at the moment. xD

Ill throw in Echohead at PL 8 if it is a fit. If it needs a super detective, I can use Lord Steam.

Of the two of them, I would say that Echohead would probably suit the mission more. Lord Steam doesn't seem quite as haunted by the horrors he's likely going to experience.

If you need someone to make up the numbers I will happily offer any suitable characters up for use!

That would be most appreciated, definitely. I did want at least a couple players, so I can throw a bit more challenging foes at them. I'll give it another few hours before jumping into the thread.

I don't' have as wide a choice as the others but I'm open to using anyone of my three.

 

Dara and Mamba are the ones in Freedom City but if it's low PL then Chromium is happy to come along :D

Hmm. I started the thread prematurely, it appears. :P

 

That said, I don't want the current players to feel underpowered if they aren't PL 10 - I know Echohead isn't, although Scarab is. The thread itself is intended to be mostly atmospheric, with one or two combats planned.

There may be other opportunities to pursue this lead - I have a few ideas about what may come next.

I'll definitely let you both know if I do that, or, failing that, when the next step in this little saga continues.
