    It doesn't have to be the centre focus, just a starting point. I.e. how people got initially involved in the major shit going on.

    If they were the results of different experiments it would make sense that there are different types and some groups interpreted their origins differently

    If you want it in there you're free to make that part of your characters story. Overall though we need to focus on the main story of what's going on. i.e., antagonists, the grand evil plot etc.

    Kk, and that can explain what your character is specifically after in the storyline since we've more or less established we'll be taking on some sort of evil corporation.

    Well I'm thinking more along the lines of how Spidey first started taking out minor robbers and stuff, before he got involved in other stuff. Just without the whole saving the world stuff (for me anyway) lol

    Ah I gotcha, yeah that's a good plan and I'll probably have some variation of it for my character, ironic that you mentioned spidey actually...

    Well we need to work out the details of what all this corporation is doing, who the masterminds are etc. And if no one wants to be DM then I will be.

    I've never been the DM before, I could. Though I don't really know what I'm doing... do I need to? >_>

    Well it's not that hard, but you do need to have ideas for how you want the story to play out and such. Encounters we go through once everyone converges, etc. Ultimately what it boils down to is you control the badguys and your character, plus the environment.

    Alright, then we just need to decide details on the corporation, misdeeds, major figures, name, and the like

    Well the obvious ones of coarse, extortion, illegal drug trafficking, arms sales, slavery, genetic experiments(which made the vampires and other icky nasties we may come across, and the origins of some of the other heroes).

    As for major figures, there's always one superbadass fighter guy, and the main leader shouldn't be a slouch either, and he should be a super genius to explain how so much stuff gets done, plus an evil scientist for the experiments

    Okay so we'll start covering the gangs activity and finding explanations for why things are how they are.

    What's the goal? To return the city to it's natural state, save the world, etc, or ???

    My character is going to be a vamp that starts out being evil because she was brought up that way. She might even be the leader of her sect of vamps. She only cares about bringing the other vamps down etc. Obviously I'll have to have at least one other character, maybe the mad scientist or something.

    I'm thinking saving the city should be the primary goal, it's big but not too big to be practical

    I'm not entirely sure what my character will be like, but I'm thinking of something similar to spiderman, not certain yet though

    Sounds cool.
