[M&M 3E, OOC] Issue One of Pearl City: The Attack on The Great Duchess Casino & Resort

edited February 2013 in Critical Failures
The style of this game will be semi-serious, with bit of absurd Venture Brothers tossed around some good 'ole fashion action. However, I am not setting anything too much in stone. I like the game to be dynamic and evolve with the group. If the group's characters fit better in a serious world, a dark world like Watchmen, The Dark Knight or Sin City that's the direction we will take. If they are zany and colorful, we'll go with more a Venture Brothers or Marvel's Avengers take. I really want this game to center around the heroes and awesome stories, not around forcing a theme or setting on you the players. Thus, player input is critical and the city will mold around your ideas!

Pearl City

604645374_3174d8d5c4_b.jpg

Known to many as Devil’s Den, Pearl was founded as a railroad boomtown and quickly became a vice-town as a place for cattle-drivers and railroad labors to relax and spend money. As the railroad moved past Pearl, it sought to increase its reputation as the “Greatest place for Dice and Vice!” It gained a reputation as a rough-and-bawdy town, a place to prove that you can hold your own.A gold rush near Pearl saw increased development in the city, followed by a discovery of oil. Pearl continued to develop as a good-time town. Then, during the Great Depression, the city got hit hard. Most of its resorts and hotels closed, casinos boarded up. The city’s economy plummeted. It survived by the petroleum industry, limping through the Great Depression. As the economy begun to pick up during World War II and oil demands rose, a massive push to revitalize Pearl’s economy was made. The City attempted to get several large factories, mostly plastics production facilities, built in Pearl. The plants opened and workers streamed in. Pearl’s places of sin re-opened. All during World War II, Pearl began to reclaim its throne as the City of Vices. Then the War ended. With the War gone, the plants closed their doors and many of the workers moved away to start new, post-war lives. As the 50s and “small-town” suburbia America arrived, Pearl found itself being left behind. Matters were made worse when the oilfields dried up and the petroleum industry moved on. The city sunk into a deep depression. The economy slumped and once again the City started to dry up.

The City desperately tried new things to boost its dying economy. A major campaign was launched in the 60s and 70s that advertised the City’s “Relaxing Atmosphere”. It tried to cater to the new Hippie Culture and indeed there was some success. A large movement started, with the popular Westgreen Valley “hippie park” being its focal point. In the 80s, another push was made to prop Pearl up, this one billing its historical heritage and tourist attraction. However, the City couldn’t shake the labeling of a “cheaper, seedier Las Vegas”. It was always seen as the city that didn't quite make it. As one travel magazine stated, “This pearl turned out to be a fake”. However, a new economy was starting to rise up, one of illegal narcotics. As the rather large criminal underworld of Pearl saw demands for drugs increase, they were quick to capitalize on Pearl’s corrupt and weak law enforcement, the proximity to good border crossings and the major transportation hub that Pearl is. A powerful drug trade emerged. Pearl served as a point of distributing drugs that were smuggled in from the borders.Even though Pearl was a corrupt, twisted city, organized crime didn't seem to take a hold. Several times, the Mafia attempted to gain control of Pearl’s flow of drugs but was fought off by local criminal syndicates. In the 80s and during the Mafia’s waning years in the 90s, it managed to get a good grasp on activities but still Pearl’s criminal underworld was mostly ran by biker gangs and local syndicates. The late 90s saw heavy rises in street gangs as they attempted to control the drugs, prostitution and heavy gambling that was rampant in the city.

Today, Pearl serves as shaded beauty, a crumbling tower of former glory. Never reaching the lofty promenade it attempted to obtain, Pearl stands as a shadow of what it could have been. Fate hasn’t been kind to City and it now sits as a massive underbelly, a dark and gritty town that has tried desperately to shake that title. It is a city of mostly corrupt people and many wicked deeds. Violence is very high, as warring gangs fight for dominance. Most of the organized syndicates have left Pearl, leaving it vulnerable and in chaos. The cocaine trade, formerly controlled by the Mafia and local syndicates, is up for grabs. The biker gangs, who controlled the crystal meth labs, are starting to fall out of power as street gangs take over meth production. Gambling and prostitution is still legalized in the City and many second-rate bordellos and casinos are open on the City’s Grand Avenue. It is a dark, gritty city. TIME Magazine rated Pearl as the “#1 Most Foulest City in America”. Pearl is still a city where one can find a cheap good time. It’s still a place of the vices. Pearl still holds a reputation of being a place where you can prove your own. It is a true proving ground. A saying in Pearl goes, “If you can make it in Pearl, you can make it anywhere”. Fights, drinks, dice, needles and women can be easily found. Pearl earned its nickname “Devil’s Den”.

    Okay, stumbled across "Temporal Intertia" as a power. It says that if the time stream is changed, I (and I alone) remember the true history of things.

    Guess what the true history of things was? STEAMPUNK VEGAS.

    I really want to start it again, using Fate Core. My idea of using d20 Modern was horrible, it slowed it down way too much. I had so much planned for that game. I really want to try it again, as a large-scale game that players can drop in and out of. Maybe get a Co-GM to help run it. One day....!

    -Summary-
    Lillith was the product of a sinister ritual performed by a demonic cult. After her birth, Sorcerer Supreme the Doctor kidnapped her from the cult with the intent of sending her back into the darkness. He took pity and brought the child into his home to raise and carefully monitor. Sickly and weak despite a immeasurable natural talent for the arcane arts, he trained her to make her body strong and taught her how to harness her powers. Upon coming of age, she donned the Raven mantel and joined her adoptive father as his sidekick. Now she's looking to establish her own identity.

    Power Source - Sorcerous
    Powers - Manipulation of fear, illusory darkness, concealment

    Amanda Simmons/Graviton

    1. My brother and I were raised by our aunt Martha; Dad disappeared before we were born, and Mom died a few years later, shot in a meaningless gang war. Martha taught us to respect each other, and the world, but she didn't take us away from the city without any respect. I think she believed it could be redeemed. Maybe so, but it would take a lot more than her and a couple of kids to do it. We got through high school, but that was it; no money for college, so Jake went with the Hounds after he graduated.

    2. You know how a few metas use fire, or ice, or lightning? Gravity's my business, and I use it well. Sure, I can't throw much of a punch, and even with my powers I don't really do damage, but I'm excellent at controlling the field. See, your average thug doesn't do well when he's floating, and usually can't handle having his weight suddenly tripled either. Still working on getting two singularities up at once, unfortunately, since one takes a fair amount of focus to sustain.

    3.
    Spoiler:

    4. I was just out walking when I saw a few thugs in a back alley, one of them wearing a suit of armor and proclaiming himself the Modern Crusader, sent to cleanse Pearl City of the heretics and sinners. He saw me and screamed that I was dressed far too immodestly (denim skirt and a camisole under a partially buttoned flannel shirt); I didn't have the patience to deal with the jackass politely, so I just lifted him about thirty feet and waited. He calmed down a little, but still insisted that I return home and put on a full dress. I just walked away, and stopped holding him up. Maybe the crash knocked some brains back in; I know it knocked a bone or two out of his cronies.

    1. Character name and biography.
    Spoiler:

    2. Character Summary.

    An unarmed brawler from the streets turned entertainer extrodinare. Tough, quick, and more than able to sweet talk anyone who walks by.

    Motivation: Attention [He loves to be in a spotlight]
    Complication: Famous [Fears anything ruining his reputation or his merchandise sales]
    Complication: Temper [Focused on those who would cheat or break their word. While Champion has plenty of bluster and white lies, once he says "I promise" it is unbreakable.]
    Relationship: Florence O'Mally, my trainer and mentor. Shecky "The Shill" Shillenski, my agent and PR specialist.

    3. Character sheet.

    Any who can, tell me if I've made a mistake, I'm a bit unsure of some point distribution and Mythweavers M&M sheet is crap.
    Spoiler:

    4. The recent low-key villain you defeated.

    Guy busted into the club one night, calling himself Jive Turkey. Dressed all in disco, I think he watched some blaxplotation films but didn't pick up that Jive Turkey was an insult. Whatever, dumb though he was, he had plenty of skill slinging those bursts of light around. Took out 3 bouncers while yelling about "Jive Turkey gonna get revenge on that sucka." So I bounced up, gave him the patented "Nighty night cross" and put him on the floor cold. Not much, but got a lot of tweets and instagrams due to the guys crazy outfit. Course, I helped it along a bit by making a little meme with me breaking the guys jaw subtitled "Take that Jive Turkey." Heh, that was fun.

    5. A quick blurb on why your character wants to be a superhero, from his perspective.
    Spoiler:

    EDIT: My motivation and relationship added
    EDIT 2: Fixed powers, fixed skills, added a linked affliction to my fists.

    Actually one of the things you will find out about real quick is the Merlfolk Kingdom in the sewers and underground water system. It's ruled by the Merling King. Everybody kinda leaves each other alone. So either from there or somewhere else totally works.

    I'm just finishing off my character sheet and I have a quick question. In the description for the energy manipulation power it states that alternate effects can be taken, but the only information I can find related to these alternate effects is a 5 year old forum post which says that I take energy manipulation at the level I want for the full points cost and then additional powers are taken at 1 point each and use the power level of the energy manipulation power. Is this correct?

  • Captain CarrotCaptain Carrot Harrisonburg, VARegistered User regular
    Yes, except that additional powers can cost no more than the main one; for example, Amanda has Gravity Control at 9, with 2 points per rank. Ranged Affliction is also 2 points per rank, so that's also at 9, but Move Objects is 2 points base, and adding the Area descriptor adds a point per rank, for three points total, so it can be at 6 maximum.

    In the contacts advantage, it is pretty vague about calling in favors (which makes total sense in game). But can I make up some characters who I know right away to call favors in from?

    Figure my trainer, Florence O'Mally, has some strong skill in treatment (always patched me up between rounds in the ring) and I should have an agent, Shecky "The Shill" Shillenski, who always knows how to handle the press and turn any PR scandel to our favor. Or would that be more a minion/sidekick thing?

    @zekebeau Why not take Strike instead of Affliction? You could use those points in Affliction to take Strike 10, which would give you a Unarmed Damage of 15 (Strike + STR). I know I certainly wouldn't want to roll against a DC 25 Toughness check.

    I will probably close submissions this weekend. Here is what we have so far.

    The Raven
    Shadow Sorceress
    Fear, Illusions and Concealment

    Graviton
    Gravity Controller
    Flight, Gravity-based attacks, Gravity Ensnarement

    Captain Science
    Homeless Multidimensional Cosmic Energy Controller..... who like is timeless and has a staff. Also guy living in his dimensional pocket? Anyways, totally insane.
    Teleporting, Dimensional Travel, Gadget Wielder, Energy Absorber

    Champion
    Brawler
    Fighter, Talker, Tough Guy

    We still have several spots open! I know @jdarksun, @Zand and @Solar are still working on characters. Post 'em up!

    The plan is that I will close submissions tomorrow or Saturday. Everyone will then pair off with someone else's character sheet and look it over. I started doing this in my games and it really helps catch errors or provide advice. Once everyone has tweaked their characters the way they like, I will throw up the IC thread Monday night. I will probably also have a little writing thing to do before then. Like give an example of what one of your character's tweet would be like.

    I will brainstorm a bit, but I will definitely post a character by tomorrow. I'm thinking a lazy version of Captain America or Green Arrow; someone who never had to work to become a prime physical specimen.

    Jin Merkle, Changeling Assassin. A Touch of Madness. AC 25 F 18 R 23 W 24.

    Jaren Cannier, Mul Warden. Freedom. AC 18 F14 R14 W14.
