SuperNES I: Gods Among Us Intro: Welcome to SuperNES I: Gods Among Us. This is the first in four planned NESes, based around players creating either a super hero or super villain and writing stories about their characters. The series will span the 20th century and involve key events over this one-hundred year period. This NES will start in 1900 and span (hopefully) twenty-thirty years. Up until now, the world has not seen a super-powered individual. However, in the year 1900, we finally see the first true super beings. No one knows what caused them to appear or realize their latent powers, but they are here, and they have the power to influence the world around them like almost no one else before. This NES will begin the point of departure from our timeline to this games timeline. With super humans suddenly appearing, history will surely take some strange and different turns. Game Play: Game play for this NES is simple. Write stories. Collaborate with other players, and keep the plot moving. From time to time I, the mod, will throw in events in the form of updates to challenge the characters to face and overcome them. Stats will not play a huge role in the NES as of now, but may in the future (as the rules will be a WIP). I hope the players will be mature enough to not God Mode the stories and keep things as realistic as the super powers will allow. Your Character: To create your character, use this template: Character Name/Player Name Nationality: Location: Power: Weakness: Ex: The Lone Rider/bestshot9 Nationality: American Location: Houston Power: Gun Magic Weakness: Regular Human This is fairly simple. The template should be fairly self-explanatory, and none of it is optional. All characters must have one power and at least one weakness. This can be anything that the player can think of, but if I deem the weakness to not be enough of a weakness, I can block the character from coming into the world until the player fixes it. As for location, you must choose from this list: US: -Washington, D.C. -New York City -Houston -Chicago -San Francisco Europe: -London -Paris -Berlin -Rome -Moscow I am limiting the starting locations to these cities to encourage player interaction and story collaboration. These will be regional hubs, just because youre located in Houston, for example, doesnt mean your character cant travel to other areas in the same region, or move regions all together. It is mainly, as I said, to encourage player interaction from early in the game. You may notice that there is no background section for your character. Since this is the first NES in the series players should make their first story their origin story/background story. Issues: For this NES, I will be calling updates issues to keep in the comic/super hero feel. As such, each issue may span a day, or a month, or how ever long I deem necessary to keep the plot moving. I will try to make it a realistic span of time based off of the players stories, but I will try to keep it moving along so players can interact with world events as they pop up.
