Hudson City Riots 2020


Recommended Posts

Given what we are seeing in the real world around the world, what do you think Hudson City would be like this year?

 

If riots and looting broke out, would the Harbinger of Justice start a killing spree?

 

How might other heroes of the city and villains react to the protests and riots?

And I would be on the Harbinger of Justice's side and with him.  There are no excuses for rioting and looting, nor with sedition and subversion against the police.

No excuses? For looting, maybe not. For the others, though? Don't forget you're living in a country whose founding was inspired by sedition, which was born out of armed uprising against its lawful government. The line between lawless and justified, hero and traitor, depends on who's doing the drawing.

It'd be hard to run a game like this without a keen understanding of your players.  However with a group that you know well, it could be an interesting drama piece and a good storyline to roll with.

I suspect you would likely fracture a group playing this. Real world politics these days is insanely divisive.

 

Yeah, it certainly is.  And may get worse.  But you might have a group that agrees with you.

As I understand the Harbinger of Justice, while he might do bad things to looters, he'd be as likely (if not moreso) to go after bad cops.

 

That's fair- he probably would shoot both rioters/cop-killers and bad cops.
