  • [3e OOC] Fox in the Hole (One Shot) OOC Thread

    I am a first time GM looking for players for a one shot. Here is a brief synopsis:

    Each of you are criminals in your own way. You have been given a choice. Either you help identify and bring in a leader in a criminal gambling ring, or you will spend a long time in prison. Your deals are in front of you, and your futures hang in the balance.

    I am looking for 4-6 players. The following are the character restrictions:
    • PL 8 with 135 pp
    • Each character must have Complication: criminal (name of crime)
    • A shift of no more than +-5
    • A description of your past criminal history. There are no requirements and it can be a first-time offense. Just make sure your character would have a reason to say yes to a deal.
    • serious or semi-serious. I like humor in my characters, but no Deadpools please.


    As I am new, there will only be a single thread (IC and OOC). If there are too many applicants, I will probably select the most interesting and thank the rest. Look at being active every other day.


    Character : Player

    Breach : jmucchiello

    Syclla : Evolución

    Massari : Sriseru

    What's the setting like, anything specific in mind or is it more of a generic superhero type thing? Magic, mutants, aliens, robots?

        Generic Superhero type. No restrictions on powers except obvious problems (like time-travel). Your characters should be able to fight and talk (or just fight... your choice).

        The PL was chosen to be 8 because this is my first game and I was told to keep it at 8. It also makes sense as I wouldn't expect the police to be able to strong-arm a major villain. I have already designed encounters based around having 4-6 PL 8 players.

          I assume the prison deals with supervillains and has nullify handcuffs and similar devices to deal with us. Could be interesting. When you say gambling ring, do you mean numbers runners or do you mean secret casinos?

            Secret casinos. Without giving anything away, the police know where the casino is. However, they don't know who is actually running it. They need someone who isn't a cop or super hero to investigate and discover the identity of the leader. They have been unsuccessful in the past when trying to shut it down because the ring leader kept avoiding capture. This is where you and an unreasonable reading of the constitution come in!

              Oh, so the idea might be to infiltrate as trying to get hired by the casino owner. If there's no suicide squad bomb-in-the-head, I suppose it would possible to actually double agent the government.

                How I leave to you. However yes, I assume double-crossing might be involved.

                  Okay then, in tht case, what about a mythical creature in the modern world? I want to pitch Scylla, who transforms from an innocent looking nymph to the monster of myth.

                    I remember Scylla from our game (Crisis). Can you make Scylla work in a PL8? If so, go ahead.

                      Well she was already pl 8 I think. Or at least her original iteration was PL8.

                        Well I was planning on playing her more mischievous than in that game, like evilish fey. Do tell me if that does not appeal for your game

                          Normally I would be very interested in this, but I just have too much life stress going on right now. I will have to be content with reading/lurking along.

                            Totally fine. Expect that there will be some social interaction (unless you want to tear the place apart). I have an intended direction of play, but realistically I am expecting that all my plans are for naught.
