    The last night there was Sky High, the superhero highschool on one of our local tv stations, and as I watched it, it occured to me that it would be really the perfect setting for a RPG.
    We could place it in a world where superheroes are rather common, make it rather lighthearted, and have anual competitions with a secret villain school (or even have the wholle RP, or half of it happening there). We could think up crazy classes, and sports. Or, perhaps even better, we could have a superhero colledge, with superhero frats and sisterhoods... You get my drift.
    This is all rather sketchy since I have no idea if anyone would be interested, but you must admit it has great potentiall.
    Awaiting your opinions people.

    Lol, I saw that several months ago, it was somewhat entertaining and good idea. It's a lot like the X-men world but put on a more ranged basis.

    It does have potential, but you'd have to see who's willing to be sidekick and teacher and what not.

    Nothing that can't be solved easily.
    I'm sort of waiting to see if some more people are interested before I start trowing ideas up in the air.

    I haven't done an RPG in a loooong time, so I'd be up for one. Flex my creative writing muscles.

    Well, now that I know that the idea has some feedback, shall we start tossing ideas in the air?
    What would be the stated preferance, a highschool or a college?
    I like the college idea enormously myself, but despite that, I have to admit that the higschool is more practical, so, in spite of myself, I state preferance for Highschool.
    Next on the order - For this one I would like as much help as possible, since, left to myself, It would take me months to do it - School itself. Location, design, classes, teachers (should they be NPC or not?) How long should the education last (I lobe for the 4 years average), should we have students slowly developing their powers, or instantly, Shall we have diferent schools for heroes and villains, or simply a school for superpowered youngsters (the later one piques my interest), some wacky sports would be nice too (Dodgeball with radiocative-charged ball :)).
    Don't get overly concerned by geting thing realistic sounding, because this is intended as a lighthearted, comic RP.

    I actually like the idea of college, but it's up to you whatever you'd like to do.

    Will we need a larger cast of students or teachers? Probably students.... And are we setting this in the future, or the present?

    ....I'm getting ideas. This could be cool. :D

    Well, a bit futuristic would be my guess, and in a world where metas (superpowered beings) are rare but comonplace. And of course, most characters should be children of known superpowered individuals :).

    BTW, what would be a prefernce, boarding school, or regular styled one?

    Possibly multiple schools of different types. You know, Harry Potter-esque lol

    That way we can explain certain character personalities due to style of upbringing

    Well, I already sugested having a hero and a villain schools - and then at certain point(s) have competitions between them.

    And would we be limited to only one power, like flying or invisibilty? Are all super abilities in-born, or can some be learned?
