  • Advice on my campaign

    I have been running a Second Edition Mutants and Mastermind Campaign since 2008, which will be wrapping up this year. It is a teenage campaign. In it my characters are PL nine. I have this adventure where they are going to be captured by an extra-dimensional being who give them their perfect futures. They will figure it out and escape. I want advice on an issue with which I have been wrestling. It would make sense for them to be PL 11-12 in the future. However, this will be the penultimate session and they will have to go back to their regular PL 9 after. If a GM did this to you, would you feel cheated by having to go back to a "weaker" version of your character for the final adventure?

    I was thinking that I would allow them to "level up" to ten for the last session, but that would still less than what they were in their future versions. Thoughts?

    Not at all, in my opinion.

    Hell, video games do it constantly. Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction started you in the first level at massive power levels, then "flashed back" to earlier events and Prototype depowered Mercer with a viral agent midway through for a while.

    It's very in-theme to have characters in a future form for a bit then go back to normal. Also, if they're not playing those characters after the next session leave them at 9, it's "normal" for them.
