You are 14 years old and entering high school in Michigan in August, 2009. Your whole world is ahead of you. You tremble as you have heard that freshmen are treated like dirt but you take solace in the fact that you will only have to bear that one year. It is time to make a name for yourself or avoid bullies or both.

The plan seems sound. It seems secure, that is, until you suddenly start experiencing strange things. Are they coming from you? These weird powers? Or is it just an odd coincidence. Yes, they are yours. But how do you develop them? How will you use them?

So, you've decided to become a hero in a world without any. What will you do when you're needed and you're at the Homecoming Dance? What will you do when your significant other wants to spend time with you and you have to decide whether to show at a date or save the city?

AS you can tell, this is not a pure hero game. Players will start with one ability (ex. fire, ice, whatever) and all are human mutants. How you get your powers may be known or unknown. The teen experience is just as important as the hero experiences. So, if you're a strong writer and this interests you, please contact me at the email address in this ad.
