Meanwhile on the other side of town, you guys were hacking into Crime King's computer, yes?"
They HATE it when I do that, but in a good way.

That is true. This is not D&D. The Superheroes shupoldn't feel that the wholed is "too dangerous" to walk around on their own.mxyzplk wrote:In my M&M game, the PCs are part of a "team" but they still split up a great deal - and frankly, that's extremely genre appropriate. In how many X-Men or Avengers comics does the whole grotty group of them go everywhere and do the same thing at the same time?

I have played in a fantasy/politics game that worked something like that, except the characters never came together in the first place, and the campaign ended before the game came to an end. I don't really know how the GM managed it, but it was a lot of fun.
It has much less appeal to me in a superhero game, though. I like the idea of a superhero team. Of course it is easier to create city threatening or world threatening events to bring superheroes together, at least temporarily.
Well, I think that's . The world shouldn't be this safe.mgg wrote:It is one thing if a groups splits up from time to time to take care of personal business or during an investigation, it is another thing entirely if a group of characters take off in different directions right from the get go and never become a group at all.
