I don't know you people remember, but years ago I tried holding a D&D session via Skype. It didn't turn out so well. I got super nervous and couldn't talk anymore, so I stopped it again.
But since then I have played the gamemastered many more times in a club I visit. Since I feel more confident to GM now, I thought I'd try again. Also I now know how to use livestream which would help do draw maps and stuff.
HOWEVER. It will not be D&D. It is what I play in the club all the time and I want a break. So what will be play?
My brother has created (or rather heavily modified/streamlined) a super hero system and developed a setting for it. And I think especially on the internet simple is better. It is not fully polished but we played it enough time to say it works for a silly and fun super hero setting.
It is very flexible and you can come up with the craziest super powers if you like.
Here are some examples of created super heroes:
Orbital Bombardment: He has the power of gravity and superfat. Mostly he puts things into orbit around him and flies like a blimp (with 500 km/h). His weakness is healthy food. He gets stronger through fast food.
Iron Vulture: Her power is metal control and martial arts. She is an ex-teen super star who wants nothing more than to escape her zealous fanbase. She has the disadvantage that her powers can only be turn on or off. No fine control (her nickname is Collateral Damage)
Last Breath: She can breathe water. Yeah. She is an NPC hero (every hero also rolls a random hero NPC to serve to fill the city and she sorta drew the short straw.)
Jetison Man: HeroCity's number one hero (I rolled this NPC XD). His power is jumping. He can reach super sonic speeds with his jumps.
I don't want to go into detail about the system yet, but it works with only a single 6-sides die.
For now I mostly wanna poke interest for people that I may meet at AC. If that does not work out I may do a PBP or via livestream.
