St. Canard is in crisis and needs heroes!
This is a Mutants and Masterminds 3e game set in the Duck Universe, and is primarily based on DuckTales
and Darkwing Duck
with other influences. St. Canard is the largest Metropolis in the state of Calisota (also home to Duckburg and Mouseton), the most modern and as such has the highest crime rate.
This game takes place years after the Darkwing Duck series (which initially aired in March of 1991, over 20 years ago), and though things have changed, much is still recognizable. Darkwing Duck is still very active, as any
in his 40s
barely past his prime would be. However other younger characters have grown to adulthood and are coming into their own.
This game will be set at PL 8. Players can opt to play established characters who have come of age (such as Huey, Dewey, Louie, Gosalyn, Honker Muddlefoot, even Max Goof), or create characters of their own. Tie-ins or back history involving established characters are encouraged. Characters may or may not be Agents of S.H.U.S.H. Heroism is encouraged. Sociopathic Loner Anti-heroes will probably be laughed at. Playing a Villain is not an option unless you are a Co-GM.
That said, though this will probably be less work than a more serious toned game, the help of a Co-GM (or GMs) would be of great help. Even just with some of the number crunching. I can handle the fluff if need be. Of course this is the way to go if you have the urge to play a villain (or villains).
As mentioned, this is a lighter toned game. However, fans of Ducktales and Darkwing Duck will know that both series can have an edge at times. I'll likely be making use of alternate damage tracks from the 2e supplement Mecha and Manga
, though as the foes get more dangerous, so does the combat. Death is unlikely but not impossible in the most serious of situations. For the most part though, injuries will not have lasting effect unless plot demands it.
I would prefer to keep the game as close in tone to the original series (and related shows, such as Tale Spin) as possible. Characters from non-Disney sources probably won't be allowed (though I'd be hard pressed if someone wanted to play Peter Porker - The Spectacular Spider-Ham), but homages are fine. Powers are fine, as they seem to fit in with canon.
Adventures will be episodic, though I am not averse to threads of slice of life banter. Long reaching arcs are unlikely. In some cases combat will be descriptive only (when the outcome is obviously in the hero's favor). Initially the game will start with 4 players, more if I get a Co-GM.
