[Prep] 49 - Love Letters

Dear Adam,

Too much power. Too many voices. Too many memories. Too much going on.

Roll +Freak. On a 10+, pick 2. On a 7-9, pick 1.

* Your powers a both close to and so very far away from Sablestar’s. In what way might might your keynome-based powers have unforeseen consequences for Sablestar, and in what way might their attack terribly destablize everything the Keynome effects? (Which would be… everything? Oh man…)

* Right after her attack, Sable grabbed you and whispered some secret (about yourself, the Concordance, heck maybe even Doctor Inifinity meant to blow your mind. What was it? Who would tear the world apart to learn it?

* Doctor Infinity’s arrival right on the heels of the team tells you something disturbing about their powers, and yours. What was it? Take +1 forward versus Doctor Infinity if you try to leverage the DANGEROUS information.

On a miss, pick 1, but your revelation comes in the midst of a pain-addled fever dream from Sable’s attack. Take a Powerful Blow.

Dear Summer,

Boy this superhero thing is a little be tougher than it looks.

Roll +Danger (-1 forward). On a 10+, pick 2. On a 7-9, pick 1.

* Sablestar totally saw you coming, and seeing The Phoenix floating there, crippled, didn’t help you calm down and think things through, either, but despite all that, you managed to impress someone involved in the fight. Tell us who it was and we’ll ask them if they see you as the new hero Radiance or Summer. If Radiance, mark potential and clear a condition. If Summer, take Influence over them.

* When those future-tech robot starfish things boiled out of the rift in space, you were totally ready for them. Tell us who in the group you teamed up with to tear them apart, and collect a Gadget from the wreckage (see the Brain’s “Tactical Genius”).

* Someone who didn’t know who Radiance is does, now. Who is it? Take influence over them and, if you take a Condition, also take potential.

On a miss, pick 1, but your rash and emotional rushing into the fight left either a teammate, Leo, or Aria with serious concerns about whether or not being a superhero is right for you, and they didn’t even have to say anything - you can see it on their face. Take Angry and shift one Label up and one Label down, your choice.

Hugs and kisses,

Heya Harry,

Your friends are in space, things went bad, REALLY fast, and you had to do SOMEthing.

Roll +Savior. On a 10+, pick 2. On a 7-9, pick 1.

* You had to get up there, somehow. What did you do, and did it Impress the Press or Scare the Hell Out of AEGIS?

* Andi was right there when it happened, and you included her in a way that made the 2 or 3 missing weeks all worth it. How did she (and/or the Irregulators) help?

* This is one of those moments where a long-ignored, semi-retired superhero steps back into the spotlight and really shines. Thanks you you, it’s Uncle Chase. Tell us what he did, mark potential and take +1 forward.

On a miss, pick 1, but you pulled AEGIS-aggro, big-time. Editorial will tell you what urgent need the HHL (well, Mom) shared with you to get you off AEGIS’s radar, but it will involve pulling Andi or Dad into your problems; pick one.

High Speed hugs and kisses,

Dear Alycia,

Things were complicated enough with Sablestar turning Concord into her space-whipping-boy, but then a rift open and out poured more of Doctor Infinity’s star-bots. So predictable.

Actually… that IS kind of predictable.

Roll +Mundane. On a 10+, ask Doctor Infinity three. On a 7-9, ask one.

* What are you planning?

* What do you want me to do?

* What do you intend to do?

* How could I get you to __________?

* How could I gain Influence over you?

* What was your darkest moment?

On a miss, pick 1, and you think you see how you’re CRITICAL to everything Infinity wants to accomplish; tell us how, take Guilty, and shift one Label up and one Label down (your choice).

Dear Ghost Girl,

The Magus will explain himself!

… and then hopefully you’ll be able to get out of this dream world. Or force him to send you back.

Roll +Superior. On a 10+, as your humble editor to DIVULGE HIS SECRETS. On a 7-9, Your frustration and anger tears your fragile mental landscape apart. Pick 1, below.

* Your reappearance in real space sends Doctor Infinity’s bots into a tailspin of confusion - they can’t understand what they are seeing! Take +1 forward against Doctor Infinity and their minions.

* One of the bots tries to grab you as soon as they sense you, but they aren’t defended against your powers - you gain a critical opportunity to understand Doctor Infinity’s purpose.

* The shock and surprise of your sudden anger is going to stick with the Magus for a long while - take Influence over him.

On a miss, pick 1, but it isn’t you that tears your mental landscape apart, it’s a very angry Magus. Take a Powerful Blow.

Hugs and kisses,
