The Cips Themselves

Postby Static Bolter » Thu Apr 18, 2013 8:22 am

So now that we've got some healthy discussions going about the general setting and the city it's probably time we narrowed down some information about the Supergroup itself.

Beam and I are likely to be 'resetting' a lot of our characters' interaction from CoH, but we've both agreed we're pretty happy with the very basics of the Reciprocators' beginnings. Beam and Bolter met when they literally bumped into each other down a back alley, Bolter disrupting some of Beam's heroing work by charging into him at high speed. The two slowly became friends and then heroing partners before deciding to make things more official and recruit others to work with as a matter of greater safety and the ability to take on greater threats to the city.

Major questions that need to be answered: How long has the group been officially operating? Where is its base located? Who is a current member? Who is going to be a newbie? Is it a legal entity recognised by the city? Aaaand other questions that I've forgotten at this moment.

Thoughts?

I'll just toss this out here because I remember mentioning the idea to someone in CoH during one or another of the occasional "What would you do with an Ultimate-style reboot?" conversations: I always thought it would be fitting for the Citadel to be a secret, partially subterranean, hi-tech Baxter Building kind of lair, but housed in the shell of a condemned apartment slum in the Row.

I don't mind being the newbie (since I was the newbie when the game ended) again.

The Citadel, which I never properly explored, was actually an old Bannitronics lab under Boomtown. Some of it looked familiar to Beam when he found it, but at the time it just seemed to be a good place to set up shop. I had stories planned where further digging revealed what it had actually been pre-war.

It will. Beam's general rich-kid turned poor-kid backstory will be much the same.

What's the IC scope for this version of the Reciprocators?

I'm perusing the Setting thread and Alexis' point about the world being your playground had me thinking. City of Heroes had a comparatively rigid, confined setting, one city (and an outlying township in Salamanca, I guess), so many characters were developed with deep ties to Paragon City, which added to the Reciprocators' tight-knit family feel -- many of them were fighting for their city. While they encountered world-threatening events in the course of RPing through game content, player-run storylines typically dealt heavily with their relationship to Paragon City itself and their various interests and connections there.

With a new world, you have the option of stretching out. Are the Reciprocators an Advent City group in the way the Primal Reciprocators were a Paragon City group, or are they a supergroup with a wider reach that just happens to be based in Advent?

Another thing in this vein: with this set more or less "Now", a group with the Reciprocators' taking-back-the-streets kind of attitude, especially if it's seen as fresh and rebellious compared to Captain Amazing & Co., could easily see their iconography and crimefighting philosophy spread virally. They could, as a result, draw members from around the country or inspire other independent heroes to adopt the Fist in their own areas, in an organic franchising kind of phenomenon - like the real superhero movement but with real real superheroes. This probably wouldn't be relevant if the group is going to be relatively newly formed, but it could be an interesting path for things to develop towards over time, and could provide an easy "in" for characters from beyond Advent.

Lumiena/Shadowhound could easily be a newbie to the group, given she was so scarce during her entire time with them in CoH, but I'll go ahead and say she could be stuck into whatever category is in most dire need of more names.
