Communal NPCs

Postby Visavis » Sat Apr 20, 2013 12:45 am

While we talking about all this other nifty stuff that's soon to be, let's discuss communal NPCs. At least, the ones that are important to the world and/or city. Here's a short list of such folks off the top of my head:

Mayor of Advent City
Rebuilding President
Current President
Captain Amazing and his Amazing Team

Who are they? What's their personality like? What's their general history?

Feel free to throw out ideas for these, and any others you feel are particularly important for the city and/or country/world as a whole.

Nothing set in stone here but I would really like the Advent City mayor to be a likeable and well-meaning but fairly ineffectual and gullible person who really only got the position due to their being a member of a very political family. Most of the cabinet is corrupt and does their own thing while the mayor does all the public nicey nice things mayors do.

Even if he doesn't have a name that relates to Teddy Bear, it seems appropriate that he should have a name somewhat prestigious/political sounding that could also come off as soft, in a sense.

Oh dear, a doublepost.

There was a pretty fair amount of chatter on zee chat room last night where we discussed the villain(s) who were responsible for the blaze, and the Captain Amazing type hero. Here's what we considered:

Kindler, a two-bit villain who's really just sort of an arsonist who's not very good at what he does, finally manages to start a blaze. Big Bad (not actual name) hears about the fire and decides to show up and have fun with it. Big Bad has the ability to create portals, which enables him to spread the fire throughout the city at a frightening speed. Captain Amazing and the Amazings (also not actual names) show up to stop him, but Big Bad, having portals, ends up throwing them to different corners of the globe, then goes along his merry way of spreading fire and mayhem. Kindler probably dies at some point. Captain Amazing, being amazing, makes it back and fights Big Bad. Big Bad falls from whatever building he was cackling maniacally on the top of. His half-burnt cape is later found next to a body that's been burnt to the point of being completely unidentifiable. He's hoped to be dead, and after 10+ years, is generally believed to be so.

So! Kindler is a two-bit villain with some minor power, if that, who tries to start fires and is generally bad at it. He is also largely forgotten or confused with the metahuman called Enkindler.

Big Bad can create portals. Probably several at once, and covering vast distances. He's generally grandiose and somewhat classical in his approach to villainy, except in that he kills a lot more people than is typically expected of a classic villain.

Captain Amazing we didn't discuss as thoroughly, but the idea was brought up of them being a legacy hero. By this point, there have probably been three or four of them, all descendants of the original. The original was much like Superman or Statesman, while the current is a half-hispanic lady in her mid-30s who is, unsurprisingly, just as capable as her predecessors. In keeping with the somewhat toned down feel that we've discussed for the universe so far, the idea is for her to be powerful enough to be a stalwart defender of 'murica, while not so powerful as to overshadow everyone else always. To this end, we thought that Tactile Telekinesis would be a good powerset for her. covers it pretty well, for the most part.

With all that out of the way, it's time to comment and critique what was discussed. Have at it.

Thinking about a portal-slinging villain some more... the ability to come and go as he pleases would give him a constant upper hand, always keeping heroes on their toes. I'm imagining a colder, more calculating villain, a real schemer. Perhaps he doesn't rely on strength or firepower to triumph, but instead on his ability to adapt and stay one step ahead. Strategy vs. power.

Tactile TK sounds fine, although I had absolutely no idea what it meant until I read the wiki article. So basically, Superman. With force fields? I'm still having a hard time visualizing it. But I also have personal issues with Superman, so maybe that's coloring my judgment.
