Um' date=' by "Tiger Squad Sourcebook", you mean "China Sourcebook" basically?[/quote']

 

No. Because there's more in China that the Tiger Squad. It'd no more be "China" than UNTIL is "all the countries in the UN."

 

I'd like it to be China Squad centric (assuming it ever leaves a thread and becomes more). The people of the Tiger Squad, how they interact with China yes, but not China And It's Superteam.

Re: The Tiger Squad Sourcebook (Fan Project)

 

Many of the Characters are of Chineses descent and are likely targets for the Chinese Governement to manipulate into preforming Black Operations. Who knows' date=' maybe their backgrounds and histories are forgeries.[/quote']

 

No worries mate. But you did have several Pulp Villains up, and they really don't count because they were pre-Communist China. And the Communist Chinese Government is the glue forcing this group together - otherwise some of them might be enemies outright.

THE TIGER SQUAD -- What Do You Want To See?

 

Ok, that is what I have been able to compile so far, but now I do not know what to do?

 

 

Anybody?

 

 

QM

 

You'd want a history of the Squad, how it was assembled, who put it together, and how new people are recruited. Also, who they have fought, who they have beaten, who has beaten them, who has quit, been killed, and so on. How they relate and interact with others, such as UNTIL, the martial arts world, or the mystic world.

 

Then you'd want to establish who is on the current Squad, how these people are divided up (if they are broken up into specific teams), and what the hierarchy of the Squad is.

 

After that, you get to start creating character sheets for the Squad's members.

Re: The Tiger Squad Sourcebook (Fan Project)

 

Put these in the 'plot seeds thread' but it occurred to me it might be a good idea to offer them here as well for your fine tuning and use if folks are interested.

 

The Tiger Squad

1) Flying Tigers: The Tiger Squad discovers a covert operation by their government that they find beyond the pale. Hundreds of lives could be lost if it isn't foiled or stopped. Sickened, the most pro democracy members of the Squad meets secretly and agrees to defect as one to the West, and bring the evidence of this coming atrocity to light, both to foil it, and to make a statement. One of them leaving, the Communist Regime could brush off with a bogus story, but if 8 or more depart and appear united on Western Press, it will be much harder to dismiss. However, they need help. Turning to the PCs, they ask for aid in abducting their own family members and making sure they get to the West first so they can't be imprisoned or threatened by the government they're about to really piss off. Will the PCs risk an international incident? And what if some family members refuse to go? And if the Party actually set this out to flush out 'traitors', will they find themselves facing ambushes meant for the pro democracy TS members?

 

2) Reflections of Wu: Odd reports come in from China, as shipments stop, and the borders close. The effects on the world economy are immediate, and spy planes going in lose contact, but satellites appear to be out of the range of whatever is going on, and give some details. Dr. Yin Wu has succeeded in transforming modern China into his idealized version of a medieval China of legend. And the Tiger Squad has been transformed into his loyal vassals. While clever PCs can find means to protect themselves from the magic of the mirror of transcendence for a short time, will it be enough time to defeat the altered Tiger Squad, and free China? Or will they too be enslaved even if they somehow can defeat the army of superpowered beings?

 

3) Trying on Stripes: One by one, Tiger Squad members end up being killed, or badly injured in seeming 'accidents' and battle with 'random' opponents. The Chinese government, true to its nature, down plays the bad press abroad, while trying to turn them into loyal martyrs at home but does not suspect foul play. Technocrat, however does. Believing that there is a traitor among the squad itself, Technocrat hacks into the files of the Chinese government and creates fake covers for "new members" while at the same time, using her gadgetry to provide PCs with translation devices ("Flawless Chinese, really... most of the time") and disguises so they can pretend to be those new members and uncover what's going on. Who is the traitor? And even if Technocrat is proven right, should the Communist government find out she has done this, she's sure to be in great danger.
