Default Vote up a SUPERS! setting.

Like Vote up a Space Opera and Vote up a Fantasy setting this thread is a series of poll were we will vote up a Supers setting.

According to how the voting goes there may or may not be an Alien/Fantasy Race Submission thread.

First two things to vote on...

WHEN?


This poll will be refined later, but for now...

A) The Past (we'll set when and were later)

B) The Present (maybe in something like our world or an alternate)

C) The Future ( What type of future could be discussed later)

Everybody gets one vote.

Next...

HOW MANY TYPES OF ORIGINS?


A) One type of Origin (all supers are varriets of the same clause/phenomenon).

B) Many types of Orgins (as in most comicbook universes)

C) A Few types of Origins (maybe all supers come from a few simple causes or maybe a small number of factions is fighting a proxy war)


My votes go to...

A) The Past (I'm a big fan of 1940's DC)

C)A Few types of Origins (I find that kind of setting easier to make dramatic and I've had campaigns like that before).


Your turn.

The Past and a Many Types of Orgins for me. A and B.

EDIT- Upon reflection, I think 'many' types of origins is probably closer to what I'd want.

B) The Present (maybe in something like our world or an alternate)
An alternate history deviating from ours in the 1920s-1930s with the arrival of supers. (They would have been born before this, say earliest supers born just after the turn of the century)

A) One type of Origin (all supers are varriets of the same clause/phenomenon).

One origin, science/mutation like aberrant or heroes.

1) the present (though the 1960s would be groovy, too)
2) few origins

Another one of these? I suppose I might want to wait on Vote Up a Horror setting then.

Time: The past, though not necesarily our past

Origins: C, few types of origin.
