Thursday Gaming - Pick Up Games

Post by Renny on 19th April 2009, 01:56

Following discussions on Thursday, it seems to make sense that we should have some games on standby in case the planned session doesn't happen. I'm preparing a Golden Age - Mutants and Masterminds adventure set during World War 2. The premise is that you are "mystery men" operating in the UK during the dark days of the 1940's. What I need from you players is a character type you'd like to play. Bear in mind that this is comics' golden age so gritty, psycopaths won't cut it. I know some of you are not as versed in these things as I am but a little bit of research will help point you in the right direction. Start by looking here and here for a start. Post ideas in this thread and i'll generate the characters for you.

Kevin, it's no problem. We all have real world issues which get in the way as I know only too well. Just seems sensible to be prepared.

The Golden-era superhero character concept I have devised is called "The White Knight". When called upon to serve his King (George VI), he would ride out to fight injustice clothed in some kind of medieval-knights armour (with a helmet to disguise his true identity). He would embody the mythical-chivalrous ideals of a bygone age and could maybe be armed with a sword or lance that is super-powered in some way (perhaps they can fire some kind of energy beam that can be used to disable his opponents). I was also taken by the contrast of a character who looks like a knight in shining armour, standing alongside our brave soldiers in the 2nd World War. What do you think?

Just had some more inspiration concerning my character. Was thinking that maybe he could also use the White Knight chess-piece as his symbol and calling-card?

Badly formatted post of Jet Commando. Very Happy . I'll get to work on The White Knight later.
