Interest Check is Here IC Prologue This campaign will offically "hard launch" after the new groups show up, but I'm going to run a casual thread or two for it beforehand. Info on the merged world: STAR Labs and Advanced Idea Mechanics were once a single legitimate above board business until a schism among the top officers caused the split off and subsequent alleged criminal activities of AIM. Approximately 85% of the world's defense contracts are held between Wayne Enterprises, Stark Enterprises, and LexCorp. Justin Hammer was bought out in a hostile takeover and now serves as a Senior Vice President at LexCorp. Metropolis is in Delaware and Gotham City is the capital of New Jersey. Dakota City is laid across the borders of North and South Dakota similarly to how Kansas City is in two states. In 1998, and again in 2004, Congress proposed the "Metahuman Registration Act." It failed miserably both times, but there are still strong supporters for it on both sides of the aisle. Lex Luthor ran for President in 2012 on the Republican ticket but backed out during the primaries and endorsed Barack Obama, and stated he was changing his party affiliation to Democrat. He was offered the Secretary of Labor post by President Obama but refused the position. Rumors of his running on the Democratic ticket in 2020 are already surfacing. HYDRA(Marvel) and Kobra(DC) are a single merged organization. Cobra (GI Joe/Marvel canon) and Venom (MASK/Marvel canon) splintered off of the HYDRA/Kobra group to form their own High-tech mercenary/terrorist for hire organization GI Joe (Marvel) and MASK (Marvel) are both special divisions of SHIELD. Character Limits: To give everyone a chance to pick their favorite canon characters, a limitation on the number of characters picked for the first arc will be in place. I've set up some basic power levels, and each player can (but does not need to) have one character per power level. I'll include some examples below to give you an idea of who fits where. We're going to go with a sort of character sheet based on the Marvel Universe Power Grid shown here. Then you'd just either find (in the Marvel Wiki for Marvel Canon) or estimate, the six levels, total it up and see which category the character falls in. The sucky part is they haven't done ratings for all of the characters, and when they haven't, they are given all 1's which is wrong. But this is only to give people average power levels, so that if we set up missions/adventures, we can have the right power level people going at it. I'm thinking there will be some overlap in the levels to allow flexibility for people who want to play multiple characters, but this a general rule of thumb: Talented Normal: Up to 16 Points* April O'Neil (TNMT 80s/Mirage); Dakota North (Marvel, Daredevil) Street Level: Up to 18 points# Stephanie Brown (Batgirl); Dr Harleen Quinzelle (Harley Quinn) Enhanced: Up to 22 points^ Virgil Hawkins (Static Shock Animated); Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier) Superhuman: 23 - 29 points Tyrone Johnson (Cloak); Raven (Teen Titans) Global: 30 - 35 points Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) ; Dr. Nathaniel Essex (Mr. Sinister) Cosmic: 36+ Points James Corrigan (The Spectre); Mister Mxyzptlk (DC); Thanos (Marvel) * Max in one stat = 4 # Max in one stat = 5 ^ Max in one stat = 6 I will link the first mini-arc in the comments.
