    About this game

    This game is for online sessions of our tabletop game.  At this time we are not taking on new players.  If you're an existing player and need to register, contact Jeramie and he'll open the registration for you to join.

    Premise

    It's been seven years since anyone's seen a mask or super, nine since the "New Age of everlasting peace" was declared.   They said the heroes had won and that the last of the major threats had been defeated.  With no "villains" left, the supers and masks started to retire - some more quietly than others.  Metas began to work normal jobs and live normal lives.  Some probably considered going "super" but the thinking was that should some hero emerge it would only drive some nut to become a "villain" and the everlasting peace would break - we'd be right back where we started.  For years, the only superhero was Captain Amazing on a campy, nostalgic TV show.  That was enough... for a while.
     

    There were a few of the more reluctant retirees who had predicted the eventual end of the "everlasting peace."  They said that in time, corruption and villainy would return - possibly worse than before.  Our everyday heroes are great for the regular jobs, but when corruption runs deep in the veins it takes something - someone - greater to root it out.  No-one wanted to hear it at the time, but maybe the cranky old Bat was right... "something about this doesn't feel right."



    Meta-Info:

    The setting is "near-future," meaning 10-20 years in the future.

    The game takes place in our own variant DC Universe, so the Heroes referenced are the ones you know and love.

    Focus (at least initially) is in The City... which the group defines together.  Famous locales of the DC Universe will exist and potentially come into play in the future.

    Style of play

    General style is "grayscale" hinting on darker side - though there'll be plenty of comic relief to lighten the mood.
