The History of the World, Part 1…
In 2008, an accident on the Space Station Galatea released radiation onto the Earth below. Humanity starts seeing people “Erupt,”, literally transforming into super-powered beings the likes of which Stan Lee never dreamed. Every facet of human society, from the political to the social, winds up changing. Small nations use their “novas” to fight against big ones, the UN obtained a force of super-powered operatives which let them have teeth to bare against Moscow, Washington, and Beijing. Many smaller groups took on their own agenda, armed as never before. Of course, the ‘Powers That Be’ assured the world that they had things under control, and that this was just a freak accident which would soon be under control.
Of course, some people know that is a cold lie. Humanity might realize that for all it’s wits, the world they have known and defined is really just one more drop in a current, which leads out into several oceans. The past defined by history books is NOT the true one.
Basic Campaign Info
The players in this campaign will learn of these other currents, other oceans, which are one high tide away from washing away the towers and mountains of our world. Even the forces that would be divine are often mad as hatters themselves, and their power does not help them one bit.
Then again, while the party will travel the world, what better place to deal with chaotic tides than the Nova-Friendly city of New Orleans. The city was built a few steps from oblivion since it’s founding, and it has not let that get in the way of living. Granted, it finds itself being stalked by all sides, from Utopia to the Directive (aka government’s attempt to maintain some control) but the storms of Katrina left one gift: a larger than normal Nova population.
And this is one of the few regular human populations that, frankly, gets on with life rather than act like the X-men’s version of humanity. Some of the so-called normal people have better costumes than the Novas, and they have the attitude/insanity to beat a Nova on any given day. It can be fun to live in a place that is already used to living by the high tides.
So let the good times roll, or as the locals say,
“Laissez Bon Temps roulet!”
