Welcome to the first day of a new school year at Three Rivers Academy, a secret school for Metahuman Children hidden outside of Phoenix, Arizona. In this first episode we meet our players and heroes as we explore their Issue 0s, significant events from before the campaign starts and coping with the start of Orientation Day.
Arianna Corazón de Sousa (Archie) – The beautiful Brazzilian heiress with a perfect body.
Soren “Quick Steel” Stal (Mike) – Inheritor of the legendary blade Tyrfang and the curse that follows.
Steve “Reflection” Moore (Julian) – A young shapeshifter who lost his home due to his powers.
Mina Shirdel (Krista) – A young girl adjusting to the snakes that have begun to replace her hair.
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.
