“Yeah." Max chuckled. "Makes you think there should be some kind of superhero apprenticeship program or something. Show the kids the ropes, tell them how things work."
-- Goldmax to the Technologist
The Story: The elder heroes of Freedom City have been called to action and aid in teaching, mentoring, and in some cases monitoring the younger generation of rising supers. The premise of this campaign started as two super parents trying to figure out how they could get their super kids trained, when their kids won't listen to them/they are over protective. Goldmax, the NPC who will be heading up this 'initiative', is somewhere in his forties to early fifties, and will be looking for heroes he knows well and would trust with his own kids.
The Setting: This will be in the same Freedom City as shock’s Super Family game. This will run as a separate, spin-off series with very little overlap and, to date, no cross overs planned between us. Recruitment is equally open to everyone.
The Cast: I’m looking for 4 to 5 players to be either: a PL 10 "Older Heroes" who have established a name for themselves and have something to offer the future generation of heroes; Or a PL 8 "Younger Super" who is green and fresh to the scene of hero-ing, or is at least open to being taught by an older teacher.
Each character will be/has been approached by Goldmax to participate because of something he saw in them. This goes for teachers and students. You are not part of a school, or formal process. This idea is in its infancy. He's just making connections for people and then it's on your own after that. Relationships between teacher and student are what they decide to make of it. As the kids in Super Family are figuring out their boundaries with their parents in Super Family, I expect hero and 'sidekick' to go through the same thing here. It could get tense every now and then, and hopefully makes for good drama and story telling.
Teachers: This means your character should know Goldmax to some degree and he trusts you, or your reputation precedes you so much that he would approach you anyway. I, like Goldmax, am going to be very picky about who gets these positions.
Students: You're were put on Goldmax's radar because of something or someone, and you've accepted the idea that you have a teacher now. You can be reluctant if it fits circumstance and character, and you haven't signed anything formal, but you have made at least a small commitment to try this out.
Or put another way:The_Watchman wrote:My understanding is the PCs will be part of what is basically Big Brother/Big Sister for superheroes. A mentor is paired with a kid in need and acts as a parental figure. The PCs would not be a team per se but would be working together (since they're organized by GoldMax) as the younger heroes learn the biz. Kind of like shock's game but without blood ties.
