About this campaign
We will be using the Wild Talents: Essential Edition rules set.
This campaign will be about people gaining super powers in an alternate version of our world as it is today. The players will decide what they do with their powers and deal with the consequences of their choices.
I intend the tone of the campaign to be darkly humorous with people reacting to impossible powers and situations as they would in our world, only slightly skewed so that the absurdity of the concept is magnified.
The law – both enforcement and investigation are less competent, allowing players to get away with actions that would normally get them sent to jail or worse. This doesn’t mean players will have cart-blanch to have their characters do whatever they want, They’ll just have more leeway in regards to some aspects of Law enforcement and investigation.
Death – both NPC & PC death is possible and even likely depending on how the players comport themselves.
