No, not my thing

The weak are meat, and the strong do eat.

The actual time and date are not important tot he question as of yet...just the idea of the Force being a thing, perhaps recently introduced via crystals from space or a rip in the fabric of reality...point being, superpowers from connection and use of the Force.

Interest?

Thoughts?

YES! I am already building a character in my Brain-Hole!
Can it be like 19th century Steam-Punk with globe-spanning plots and Gypsy Necromancers and a Chineese "Sith" trying to rule the world with an iron Fu-Man-Chu? Cause that would be AWESOME!!!

I'd give up Ja'roc for this if it gets enough of a following.

Clearly we are going with a Yes at this point, so onto the next stage of the process.

How to apply the Force right?

I am going to offer a very comic book origin story and include a very Star Wars canon aspect...



A meteor passes through the Earth's atmosphere and breaks up with a spectacular show, noted around the world.

Over the next couple days a series of isolated occurrences become a series of linked events.  The remains of the meteor, noted as a iron core laced with an unusual crystal Lucusite, are found across the globe in a wide swath with the majority of the pieces landing in 5 major areas...those who come into contact with the crystals have become poisoned by a fringe radiation.





In short order those affected go through the stages of radiation sickness and come out the other end changed.  Their DNA has been modified with some spectacular results.  Powers, like those seen in comicbooks.

The crystals themselves no longer exhibit any radiation.

Those that survived the radiation treatments display a variety of abilities...most are stronger, faster, and tougher than the human normal standard.  Some have displayed unique abilities but the majority have a measure of telekinesis.  

A side effect of the use of the powers seems to be an inner rage that can become uncontrollable.  Most seek assistance to maintain a balance while others embrace the surges of power, acting in patterns that most would say are insane.

I honestly think a WWII era roleplay with the superhero, by way of the force characters could be interesting.

Of course I'm and A&A fanatic, for both WWII and WWI, and a great fan of the art that came from the surviors of WWII.

WWII would be a great time period.

I have run many a super game in that time zone.

I dont really feel like fighting Nazis though. How about all the Adepts trying to run away from Whitecoats?

I'm missing the white coats reference and WWII wasn't all Nazi's, I know they get the historical attention but Japan and Italy had something to say in it. Add in Russian and its ambigious interests, there are a lot of angles to play.

I have no idea what whitecoats is referencing.

Is this a sideways thought towards assassin's creed?

Just the ruthless scientific community who would run endless tests until the Adapts died, but that's no longer important. I decided that screw me, I was in a bad mood. I could live with WWII.

I think he means "What if the story wasn't 'you're fighting the axis/nazis/russians, but rather you're all RUNNING AWAY FROM JOSEPH MENGELE AND HIS ARMY OF HELLHOUNDS."

I would of course create a different WWII enemy, just because I tend to not want to support the Nazi aspect...a more Dr Doom lead sort of thing, using super science, robots, etc.

So 1940's?

Time for another poll lol.
