I was thinking this was gonna be a lot more time intensive than that, but that, I can sure as heck commit to. Super interested in this now.

Same!

I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up being more, but I could be wrong.

Re: Superhero RPG play by forum


Behold Francis Herbert Fairweather III, scion and only heir to the Fairweather hotel chain. Perhaps you have heard of it. It is, after all, the largest regional hotel chain in the northeastern United States!

Fairweather was a born romantic. Wealthy, but also infatuated with comic books and stories of derring-do. Some of the super-wealthy purchased football or basketball teams, but Fairweather, who wasn't that super-wealthy anyway, had other ideas about how to extend his fortune into a beloved hobby.

Fairweather took his family fortune - or, at least, the part that could be spared from operating 30 hotels in New York, New Jersey, and New England, with one also, curiously, in Santa Fe - and started a new venture for FHI: employing superheroes.

The business model is pretty much a straightforward government contractor situation. Local, state, or federal governments can contact FHI, or Fairweather Hospitality Industries (the name didn't change), for "super" help. FHI will then, through its agents, reach out to qualified, interested heroes. They, in turn, would solve the government problem, in exchange for a cut of whatever had been paid to FHI.

FHI, however, is struggling. There simply isn't much money in this line of work, in that there are qualified police and fire personnel to handle ordinary jobs, and they're already paid. And the big shot superheroes already have sponsorships of one type or another, and they are generally the ones who swoop in (literally) and take care of the world-breaking threats.

So FHI is a lot like a temp agency now. The types of heroes it contracts with fall into a few categories, none of them particularly grand. Some of them are college students, looking to make a few bucks for their education. Some of them are retired from one career or another - one of them even a former rock star - looking to hustle their way, job by job, through their golden years. Some of them have ordinary, if irregular, day jobs, and just want to pad their paychecks, and some of them are just trying to do the right thing, a little bit at a time.

The main point of this is, though, that if you have a problem, FHI can solve it. Heroically.

And from this example, don't waste your time rolling 1d6+2 or 2d6+4.
How do you want us to handle HP for equipment?

Aw, thanks.

You wouldn’t believe the overhead, for such a relatively small business. Fairweather takes care of his people, though. Christmas bonuses and all that.

Sounds like a chill dude. I can dig it. And I'm not too proud to say I need a payday, know what I mean?

Re: Superhero RPG play by forum

Oh, don't worry about Mr. Fairweather. He's seen a thing or two. If you look closely, you might recognize him as a man who's been in touch with some ghostly powers himself.

Re: Superhero RPG play by forum

I like it! Not sure it works for that character I created a backstory for but that's fine, I can think of something for a guy who is looking for temp work. Started to realize that I should be trying to start earlier in the characters career/story instead of mid-career, which an inter-galactic bounty hunter would be. Not sure I'll have the points to spend on a bunch of high tech equipment. Better to start with not much and let quozl let me acquire cool new stuff along the way. I've got some time until my hard copy of the rules shows up so I'll think on it a bit more. I've always like Catpeople so maybe Tigra's brother. PETA shut down the circus I worked at and now I need a new line of work.

Re: Superhero RPG play by forum

Okay here is the direction I am going with.

My character, Granite used to be a Roadie for Bats character Johnny B. Here’s the background, stats/powers in a day or two.

Granite
Grant Davis
Unemployed former Roadie of Johnny B Jaeger


“Johnny? Johnny B, is that you? Wow man, it is you! How long has it been? Must be 15 years! Great to see you man. Johnny? Johnny?”

“You talking to me kid, no autographs today?”

“It’s me Grant...Grant? Your roadie for like 10 freaking years!”

“Hmm doesn’t ring a bell, hey do me a favor, get me another drink or beat it. You’re ruining my vibe, see that red head over there? I’m getting ready to make my move.”

“Wait, what? It’s me Grant! You know, Granite!”

“Granite...granite...hmmm...oh Granite the dude from Detroit? Sick drummer, thought he was dead?”

“No Granite from the road man, you know the guy who used to grab the girls for you, carry your crap, punch the crazy dudes. You know generally try to keep you outta trouble!”

“Oh yeah! Granite. Hey, what’s up man? You look like garbage. What have you been doing?”

“Well it’s a long story...”

“Never mind, I’ll pass.”

“Okay here’s the short version. Once the band split I went broke. I needed cash fast and a met a dude who was kinda shady but said he knew a guy, who knew a guy, who knew another doing under the table medical testing and was paying cash. And cash I needed. Everything was going great for a while, they’d stick me with something, I’d get paid and report back. Rinse and repeat. Then one day I show up and there is this new doc there talking about trying something stronger, the money was better so I say, why not. Turns out this stuff started making people crazy, but somehow, not me. I got stronger, but angrier, all this rage. I couldn’t keep down a job, kept beating on the bosses. Then one day I could start to control it. Not so angry all the time. Still had a short fuse but I wasn’t ready to kill a dude if they looked at me wrong.”

“Whoa dude. What did the doc say?”

“Funny that, the next time I went back, the place was gone. Not a trace. Couldn’t tell that anything was ever there.
So now I’m broke and talking to you. Any thoughts on getting the band back together? I could use a job.”

“Well my friend, you are in luck, because I just might know a guy. Hey Hilda, we gotta roll. So, you ever hear of FHI...”

Oh, I thought of your character. I should have been more explicit.

You see, a person who doesn't really *need* the money, but is a competent superhero without a major league connection already, might wish to sign up with FHI just for the opportunity to be pointed at some wrongs that need righting. Otherwise, how does he even know where to go to protect Earth? That's how I read your character.

Hence my little line about how "some of them are just trying to do the right thing, a little bit at a time." That was for you! As I see it, no need to change anything. But, of course, it's your character and do as you please.
