A new song spreads throughout the Evil Henchman's Union:
So They say that the Snake Bite has got herself captured,
Put on ice by the authorities.(OH NO)
So They say she was set-up,
Who would do that? (They’re SO dead.)
So They say she had files and tapes, proof of bad deeds, on all the League members. (Oh That’s Bad)
It’s a tragic story, so they say
The cops must be on their way.
Could this be the end of all we know the world to be today?
If there's interest, this would be a story for the Henchmen from Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, a few months after Dr. Horrible's acceptance to the League. Using that setting and the characters within. Trying to capture even a taste of the light-hearted fun from the Webisodes.
Some of the Henchmen we only have names and/or vague descriptions:
Moist (male, Constantly exudes moisture)
Pink Pummeler (male, boxing gloves, pink tights)
Conflict Diamond (male, complete unknown)
Bait, and Switch (female, Sisters?, Friends?)
Hourglass (female, some precognitive ability)
(Feel free to come up with other, low-powered, goofy Henchmen ideas. But I'd love to see people's takes on the mentioned characters)
I'm thinking a low powered adventure with emphasis on role-playing (yes, I'll hand out Hero points for witty dialogue, great interactions, even a superb line that makes me LOL or even ROTFLMAO).
Looking for 4-6 characters, PL3, 45 points (if there are problems I may up the PL and/or point-buy, I'm open to suggestion). The objective isn't to see what a world shattering build you can make with this few points, I'm hoping your emphasis will be on interesting characters. I repeat, you're all clever enough to make a planet killing build at this level. Please aim for a build that contributes to the story overall - dare to be unimpressive but interesting. Remember, these guys have a limited ability to impact the world otherwise they'd be League members.
Likely, at some point we'll see the titular Mad Scientist, and possibly face off against something resembling Seren's Johnny Snow
This would be my first PbP game as GM. I don't know how I'll do. We'll see.
