Summer Games
« on: May 18, 2004, 12:16:09 AM »
So, I would like to run a campaign on TWG for the summer. Assuming anyone is interested.

The game will be set in the modern Central American country of Ohmteca located in the Yucatan. Yes, I know Ohmteca doesn't really exist, but it will someday.

The plot is around a strange pyramid that has risen in the capitol city of Teopolan after an earthquake. The country has declared a state of emergency and has requested the help from the UN. The UN has turned them down. So President Catrina Gomez has requested the aid of all vigilantes, mercenaries and super-heroes to help what she describes as a "war-zone."

Yes, this is a super-hero campaign. So bring me your super-dudes, your wonder-chicks and your mighty-whatever. Get ready to do battle Latin style.

And the system of choice for this campaign...drum roll...Mutants and Masterminds. Yeah, I won! I won! I won!

So, Questions? Comments? Anyone interested?

If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Before I forget, the PCs will be starting at whatever Power Level you decide.
1. Just take what ever power level you've decided and square it.
2. Then add your chosen power level to it's square.
3. Then divide that by your original chosen power level.
4. Then add 38 power levels.
5. Then subtract you original powel level.
6. And finally divide that by three.

The result is what power level we're starting at.

14 would be good, but I just rethought it so rethink the power level thing. So we can be thinking together.

Also, I'm not planning to set people up in "adventuring groups" per say. Mostly because I don't like trying to force players to work together when one or more of them may clearly have no intention of working with the rest. So if you want to adventure with someone else, please come up with a reason on your own why your character would be with their character.

Also, I need a name for this campaign. I'm thinking El Sexto Sol or Toltec Tango or Rio Sangre. What do people like?

As for the duration of this campaign. It will last as long as it lasts, but I have an okay record of keeping campaigns going, at least the table-top versions. My longest campaign to date has been a year.

I like Toltec Tango

By starting with "2" just for kicks, I ended up with level 13.
Which works for all numbers. SO I'm not sure where Gemm's getting 14.


13's a good number for level.
If I end up being lazy, can I just use of the extant characters in the books?

yeah, and when you go through the process starting with 1, you get 13, not 14

1 squared = 1
1 +1 = 2
2/1 =2
2+38=40
40-1=39
39/3 = 13

so,... not 14

no. When you add 38 to 2 you do not get 41. Not when you're doing math in a base 10 system using standard arabic numerals.
