Beware the Shrike!

Recommended Posts

So I'm hoping to bump Grim's sidekick Gretchen to PL10 in the next few months, but I don't think she's logged enough field time to justify it. Any street-level heroes looking for a team-up?

 

The Shrike is basically a PL8 mash-up of Robin (minus the high-end martial arts) and Dr. Fate, or as I call her, 'MTV's Daria with a Power Ring'.

This sounds like fun! Starlight seems to me like the obvious choice for a team-up. There is a bit of PL gap there, which could cause some complications, but they already know each other fairly well and Sam's very much the street-level type.

 

If that doesn't tickle your fancy, Echo is a PL lower (for the time being, at least), also fairly street-level in terms of capabilities, and has a nonstop smart mouth that might nicely compliment Gretchen's.

Sam and Gretchen would probably be easier to set up, so we can go with that, but a future thread with Echo also sounds like a good idea; had no idea her backstory was so cool and twisted!

 

Gretchen set up a webpage for Grim that she monitors for her, and sometimes people send her cries for help and the like; normally, Gretch screens them and passes the important ones on to her boss. But many one day she gets one that's particularly urgent and Lynn's not available; she doesn't feel comfortable tackling it alone, so maybe she meekly asks Sam for help?

Phantasmo is a street-level hero! I mean, he hangs out with homeless dudes - you can't get more street than that. Mind you, it depends on how Gretchen feels about flamboyant, hammy, magical zombies.  Still, he's always willing and ready to meet new friends in the superhero crowd. If that's okay.

Okay, Phantasmo is a hoot, so I think this has to happen! Maybe two different threads; Sam and Gretchen in one, along the lines I proposed above, and then Echo, Gretch and Phantasmo in another? We'll need plots and GMs, of course.

Works for me. I'd theoretically be up for GMing one of those (probably not both, I'm easily overwhelmed when it comes to these things). Might take me a little while to come up with an appropriate plot, though.

Right, there's the Echo/Phantasmo/Shrike thread up (and here's the OOC). Sorry for the delay. I'm going to be all daring and try GMing the Starlight/Shrike thread as well, so that one's still in the works.
