What does everyone want to play?

Post by Omnipotent Being » Tue Apr 22, 2014 3:50 pm

Up front, I know third edition is the prevailing thing around here and I won't say no if it's chosen, but I do not know it as well as second edition.

Since it worked for others, I'm going to throw it out there:

PL4 People with Powers. Normal world gets not-so-super powers. The group has some secret to keep so they watch each other's backs.

PL6 Fantasy Adventurers. You all meet in a tavern. Between drinking swill and listening to bard tunes, you somehow get drafted (willingly or not) into some crazy scheme and have to save the day.

PL8 Superheroes. You're not Superman or Thor or whatever passes for the big good in the setting, but you're strong enough to right wrongs.

PLX Mortal Kombat. X means I haven't decided, most likely an amount of points with no PL restriction. You are drafted (willingly or not) into a fight to the death tournament. Set during Mortal Kombat II

Probably not going to be the most popular option but I'd be really interested in a low power game. The "one trick pony" style just sounds really fun to me.

It'll most likely be it's own setting with typical things a fantasy setting would have. The feel with be 'middle fantasy'. Not grim realistic, but not magic everywhere.

I really wanted to play this one, but everyone in the other thread was choosing fantasy and superheroes. So I made all three choices :mrgreen:

I'm going to throw my vote at Fantasy. Then Superheroes. Then Not Superheroes. Then Mortal Kombat.

My order of preference depends on something:

Is your Mortal Kombat game going to be like my 'ultimate showdown' Tournament/fighting game, allowing all sorts of characters, or is it actually 'Mortal Kombat', only allowing certain types of characters that would fit in MK games (And yes, I realize that's still a fairly wide variety)

If the former then D is my definite top pick, followed by A/C/B
If the Latter then A/C/D/B

The latter.

OK based on first choices we have a close race.

For the record, I want to say I'd play in any of those, I just haven't tried a low level M&M game that has actual powers..usually anything below pl 8ish is 'normal but super-awesome' guys. I like the idea of low-powered, but still POWERED.

Though maybe pL 5 would fit a bit better.. Besides, nobody ever starts games at odd levels. c'mon, be a rebel. :P

PL 8 Superheroes would garner my interest.
