Color me interested.  Where/when/how would the actual game be running?

The game will be done online using a site, you can pace yourself and post whenever you want and then I'll respond.  So there is no real time to post. Helps a lot when you have an odd schedule.

Sounds interesting, will the players run independent missions or just wait for each other to respond?  Also how well do you have to know the Hero System?  Still new to it and not completely grasped all of it even though I played RPGs many years ago...

You don't really have to know the HERO system at all, just have knowledge of the genre.  As for others, players can interact with each other on the same mission.

I'd prefer to keep the size of the "team" small.  This game will take place in modern day real world, 2016 Fictitious city.

 

I'd like to know what you want in a game, since you guys will be doing detective work and possible research to solve problems.

I ran a "serious" game, not in the sense of lacking comedic villains or having the occasional pun, joke , or other comment about your situation;

 

If a guy in a chicken outfit tries to ruin Thanksgiving by stealing turkeys from local supermarkets, I expect someone to say "The fowl/foul fiend"

yet realize while this guy may be nuts he can be dangerous.

Well I know the genre, I have all the books on Dark Champions: the Animated Series, Hudson City: the Urban Abyss, etc.  I would love to play, just never have been able to figure out the rules or the character creation to make a street level hero.  I would love to play, if someone can help me put together a character and everyone would help me learn the rules.  I promise to be a fast study.  I have played Champions, but I must admit I use the LARP rules since they are so much easier to figure out when you are trying to learn on your own....I have a couple of character ideas, and would be interested in playing a street level detective realistic to semi-realistic game with overtones of a serious nature.....eg.  Chris Nolan's Batman movies and Arrow tv series.

I'm flexible depending on the concept. As long as it stays within the "spirit" of the genre.

http://www.sysabend....orh/gnborh.html

 

Spiderman  has about 30 pts in skills and 65 in his multipower at least.

Daredevil has 63 pts in skills  and 70 pts in powers  

Hawkgirl has 26 pts in skills and 82 pts in powers 

 

The guidelines in the book call for ; 90 pts in skills and 70 points in powers.

Looks like it's Dark Champions: The  Animated Series pg. 11. (Text description on pg 10). 5th Edition.

 

Here's the text block:

 

 

 

Hudson City Powers: Characters are built on 250 points (150 Base Points + up to 100 points from Disadvantages). Normal Characteristic Maxima rules do not apply (but see page ??? regarding equipment). In general, street-level superhero should allocate approximately 90 points to Characteristics, 90 points to Skills, and 70 points to powers and gear. For suggested point and eff ectiveness [sic] ceilings, see the accompanying text box.

I am also interested if there's room - street level guy with a gimmick is one of my favorite genres for heroes. 


"I threw a rock at him!"

*silence*

".... it was a *big* rock."

 I received requests from 4 players so far, 2 have given me complete characters. I'm going to go over all of them this weekend, so unless someone has a really cool concept I will stop looking for other players.
