Tentatively titled “Awakenings”, it follows the story of the appearance of the first generation of “powered” individuals. I’d be lying if I said that the recent appearance of a certain TV show (Heroes) had nothing to do with the setting.
Awakenings will be set in a fictional city in Northern California on the US West Coast. Located in Humbolt County, it has a population of approximately 2.5 million and is in most ways and average city. As far as characters go, they will be (as stated above) among the first generation of supers. Although stories of such individuals have begun to appear with increasing incidence, the general public is mostly unaware of whats going in. Most of the stories are being dismissed as tabloid trash. Magic as a power type will be out and superscience will be restricted in power level.
I’ll be using the Wushu system to run the game.
