    About the adventure

    It's the 80s and you're just a kid who finds themselves with great power. How's the whole great responsibility thing going? We're playing Masks: A New Generation, in a world where the Marvel and DC heroes came onto the scene in history at the same time when they first appeared in comics in the real world. You are part of a team of young heroes tasked with being Municipal Ambassadors of Halcyon City, making sure everyone (especially wealthy tourists) stays safe.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Players should have a Roll20 account and a Discord account for the actual gameplay. Microphone required, video camera strongly suggested. You should familiarize yourself with Powered by the Apocalypse games by watching a couple of videos about it, but you don't need to read any rules.

    What I provide

    I will provide all the digital tools needed to play.

    Gameplay details

    Will you be sending a link to your Lines and Veils document? We will discuss it and develop it in our session zero. What will you go over in Session 0? We'll set up characters and how they're connected, why we're a team and what our relationships with each other are. We'll go over the history of the setting, and the current events that make the backdrop of the game. We'll develop some key NPCs as well. How do you do aftercare? I always spend time after a game chatting, asking questions about what worked and didn't, and just developing a bit of our rapport outside of the game. Are your X, N, & O's digital, messaged, or held up on video? Etc. We have these available digitally on Roll20.

    How will character creation work

    We will discuss character ideas in messages before session zero, then create them all together when we actually do session zero. I also have a number of premade characters to choose from if you find yourself short on ideas. Character sheets are stored on Roll20, and we start with no advances taken.
