  1. It is not a death trap. I designed it to be more of an exercise in teamwork. They have to work together to escape their current predicament. However, there is a time element to it. Whomever is holding them will eventually be coming back. There is also a risk vs. reward element. Do they stay and fight or sneak away and escape? That is up to them. "Stay tuned citizens, same Bat time, same Bat channel!"

    I am going to run a 6th ed. Golden Age Champions tabletop game for my friend. This will be his introduction to Hero. I want to get some advice as to what scenario to use for his first experience in our wonderful system. I plan on using the bare minimum rules so as to not overwhelm him. Any help is very much appreciated. 

    My buddy from work found out about this and wants me to run a game for him also. "When it rains it pours." I went from 0 games to 3 in a months time. This one is going to have to be a PBEM game. WHEW!

    I don't know if you have access, but some of these golden age adventures used to be online. See if your friend has something from that time period he might want to play like the Ray, Captain America, Samson, or the Whizzer. That will help with what kind of powerset he needs.

    I don’t have access to those. However, I am using the posts above for inspiration, at least for act one. Thank you for your wonderful ideas.

    Perhaps you should have the players built the characters with a bare minimum of limitations, and at a low power level.  Most Golden Age Heroes were basically Martial Artist with a few gimmicks or one major power.  All should take Code Of The Hero and Superpatriot, and be vulnerable to Ambushes and Treacherous Attacks.  Pulling Punches should be for free.

    These are all great suggestions and all true. I will be using them to help my friend build his character.

    Yeah go with a really straight forward, simple character: this guy is strong.  This guy is tough.  This guy can fly.  Then combine that with a pulp hero character (he's a photographer for a news organization, he's an archaeologist who gets into wild adventures, he's an airplane pilot that goes to crazy places or does stunts).

    I love the pulp angle. I plan on keeping it simple and add some pulp flavor. Thank you for your excellent suggestions.

    Something simple.  Something straightforward.  Something that allows him to use his powers and to generate that feeling of awe among the general populace of just how awesome this mystery man actually is.

     

    The classic is to have something go wrong at the World Fair, robot coming to life, a sea monster attacking, some villainous agents coming to rob the great and the good.

     

    Really the nature of the PC should drive the detail of the scenario - something tailored to show off the abilities rather than to test them to destruction.

    Those are all awesome ideas. I get the gist of what you are telling me. I will use a few of them. Thank you.

    My apologies, Dayson. 

     

    A striking resemblance to a young Alec Guinness is something I thought was quite praise-worthy.  :)

     

    I would love to pick up another game, though.  My youth concluded a couple of weeks ago, and my decades-long Brunswick group has all but disbanded, following the deaths of two long-time friends, and my Statesboro game will be drawing to a close by January or so, I think.... 

     

    I wish I could join your group, but the commute would be awful.  ;)

    Maybe in the future

       I know some players in the Nashua area, but they’re currently juggling work, going back to college to get degrees and raising their two kids.  

       If they get a spare minute they just kind of sit, stare at the walls and take a recovery.

    Thank you for your help
