I'm contemplating an online campaign set in the past. I know when I'd like to set the campaign in, but I'm curious about what the general Champions population thinks. Rather than breaking it down by the Ages of Comics, I've instead separated the choices into decades as I think each has its own distinctive flavor. My take in brief on each decade: The 40s - Obviously dominated by World War II, a straight Golden Age campaign with heroes vs. Nazis, with a wealth of new info thanks to the outstanding Golden Age Champions The 50s - The birth of Rock n Roll and television, the heightening of the Cold War, McCarthyism, great black and white sci-fi films...the interregnum between the Golden Age and the Silver Age in the early part of the decade, the onset of the Silver in the later. The 60s - Baby boomers come of age, the height of the Cold War, counterculters emerge, Rock n' Roll evolves, the height of the Silver Age The 70s - Watergate, the Energy Crisis, disco emerges...as does heavy metal, arguably the greatest era of filmmaking, Viet Nam, the Bronze Age starts here The 80s - Ronald Reagan, MTV, yuppies, 'greed is good', the onset of the personal computing age, the Bronze Age gives way to the Iron Age late in the decade...laden with spikes, an overabundance of pouches and misspelled codenames So I'm curious, what decade would you like to play in? Thanks in advance.
