The new year has been rather hectic and due to scheduling conflicts we ended up setting up a number of secondary games. Today we begin the first of these new games, Seekers of SICAD.
In our first session we explore the team origins of the Seekers of SICAD.
With the threat of an aliens having infiltrated SICAD, the military’s research arm for extra-terrestrial technology Dr. Candice Caine is forced to look up a KB Survivor to help root out the truth. Together with the archer Red Wanderer the three are forced into a conspiracy that takes them across the country.
Dr. Candice Caine AKA Thrasher (Archie) – A reverse engineer with SICAD Candice utilizes an experimental bio-technological power armor that allows her to manipulate gravity.
Echo (Mike) – A veteran of World War I, Echo’s aging has slowed like many who survived. With an enhanced physiology Echo is able to bounce attacks back to his opponent.
The Red Wanderer (Krista) – Born centuries ago Diego La Roja was a vintner with a modest hacienda and winery in Spain. After refusing hospitality to a witch leading to her son’s death due to exposure he was cursed to wander the earth until he witnessed the death of his bloodline.
Developed using the Open Action System, Metahumans Rising focuses on recreating the experience of a comic book. Characters roll dice based related characteristics. Each character has a pool of Willpower that allows them to modify their powers in creative ways and achieve any number of other related effects. This pool is fueled by their Drives, motivations that push them to go beyond their limits.
