Casting Call for New Story Arc


Recommended Posts

Casting Call: "Once More to the Boards"

 

Arc Synopsis: SuperCrime! , Discovery Channel’s flagship superhero show, is ending its run after fifteen seasons. Its longtime hosts, Fast Forward and Hologram (Richard and Paige Cline) are finishing up big, with one last double-legnth episode covering one of the most infamous supercrimes of recent history, the Curator’s kidnapping and replacement of heroes and villains throughout Freedom City. By doing research and interviewing witnesses, they want to show the world exactly what happened in those strange days, and along the way they might just turn up a mystery or two as well! It’s going to be a big and exciting finish for the world’s superest documentary television show. 

 

What it is: This thread arc is primarily narrative and will be centered around Fast Forward and Hologram as they conduct their investigations. Other characters will give interviews, provide clues, possibly participate in staged reenactment sequences, and interact with the Cline family. There will be some combat, probably a large combat sequence at the end, but this will not be a dice-heavy or combat heavy story. On the other hand, if your character wants to be on TV, now’s the time! 

 

Who We’re Looking For: 

Characters who experienced the Day of Wrath and are willing to be interviewed on or off camera 

(You OOC do not have to have been here for DoW, so long as your character would have a story to tell about that day)

Characters with expertise in robotics, engineering and/or space travel

Characters specializing in sociology, psychology, or especially Freedom City history 

Characters with a reputation for investigative or puzzle solving ability

Players willing to take on NPC roles 

 

Because this is an arc and not a single thread, it should not be a problem to have more than one character per player involved. 

 

When: Soon! The opening thread of this arc (The Old Girl is Dying on Her Feet) is already posted, and because of the modular nature of interviews, many can possibly be conducted at one time. If you’d like your character interviewed, you can specify if you’d like Fast Forward or Hologram, assuming you have a preference.

Voltage was active on Day of Wrath, AND is an expert on technology.

 

Crimson Tiger was actually there on the assault on the Curator, so if there's a convincing cover story she could participate!

Terrifica is all of these things. I don't believe she'd do an on camera interview, but yes she is all of these things. JETTE was long out of prison by the time DoW happened, though she was in Bedlam by then. It wouldn't have been implausible for AEGIS to have scooped her as it was one of those "all hands on deck" situations.

 

Queenie was a raw and green rookie in those days. I'm not sure she'd moved to Freedom yet, though, so less likely. And Chronia has been to lots of past times. Though she's the least likely due to who'd think to ask a Claremont student about something that happened almost before they were born?

Justice does machines, if you want her in. Get some Emerald City perspective on things.

Nevermore fits here, if you want him!

Ghost was retroactively around during that time, so there's another option.

 

Pick any and all you want 😀

Gabriel personally interacted with one of the robot duplicates, as did Cobalt Templar. Of the two Gabriel is more "camera friendly", but honestly they both had rather interesting experiences based off of that. So I'm totally down for having them be part of the interviews.
