Need Mars characters for next week

Everyone will need a Mars character for next week. Without Dave and Randy, that is what we worked on with the rest of the folks this Tuesday.

- Bruce is playing a Green Martian Psychic Healer.
- David is playing a Purple Martian Scholar with knowledge of Atlantean Power Words.
- Kelly is playing a human lawman projected from Earth.
- Alan is playing a Pantherman beastman explored from the Hollow Earth that came through a portal.
- Randy is playing a human explorer from Earth who's rocket crashed on Mars.

My plan is to start playtesting the adventure that I am writing but that will depend on how much I get done over the weekend. Regardless, I have material to run that we can use to get to know the characters and familiarize ourselves with the setting. If need be be can spend a potion of the session working on characters.

Mars Adventure Playtesting

I will be needing to playtest the Mars adventure that I am writing. I expect that we will need at least two weeks but maybe three. I will plan to run something starting 2/23/16 and likely 3/1/16 and 3/8/16.

You will need to create characters for Mars. We can discuss you character concepts further online or at the game next week. Bruce, David and I all have hard copies of the RoM book. You will likely also need things from other books as well.

To get you started, a copy of the latest Character Generation Cheat Sheet can be found here: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnx6b21iaWVzaGV4cGFnZXxneDphNzlhZjFmMzY3MDIxOTk

My draft deadline is 3/18/16 so I want to have some time to analyze and incorporate your feedback.

I have the original NDAs for everyone but we may need to fill out new ones. I know that Exile has changed their address and I believe that some of you have as well (Dave, Randy, Steve, Corey). I will check with them and see if we need to do anything. If so, I will supply the new forms to be signed.

Supers Game Planning

OK. So I brought this up last week but I wanted to let you all know that I am serious about doing this.

The Plan: Run a new Supers game using my modified Ubiquity rules.

I think that we agreed that the player characters will be heroes. They will be just starting out (low powered) and are not necessarily part of a team. You will end up working together but may or not end up as a formalized group.

The setting will be modern day and the tone will be modern comics.

My definition of modern comics =  Moral choices tend to fall into shades of grey rather than black and white. The level of violence tends to be more toward the lethal end of the spectrum (guns, swords, etc. rather than just fists and and flashy powers). Angst is more likely than not. Expect a darker reality rather than a sunny one.

Your Role: Come up with a character concept. What does your character do? Why does he do it (motivation)? What is the source of his powers (origin)? How did he come by his powers (origin story)?

I will try to build your characters with you filling in the blanks. If we need to, we can spend part of a game session doing this.

Caveat: The rules for this game/system are under construction. I will reserve the right to change how things work as we play. This may mean that powers, skills and talents will be modified as we go. I will allow for some respecs depending on circumstances.

Dave has expressed an interest in a ghost-like character.

David has expressed an interest in a mentalist.

Bruce is looking at a speedster.

Alan is looking at a supernatural/undead martial swordsman.

Kelly is looking at a martial artist.

Randy is looking at a cowboy that shoots psychic bullets from his finger.
