I know that is the sad thing about the Media industry today. I wish someone would do something new and creative.
I think part of the problem is that Hollywood doesn't want anything new and creative, so writers have to
write rehash shit to get a gig as a writer in Hollywood...
It's a shame as a forum we couldn't do a film. I think we could do a decent one.
Hell, I'm half-tempted to start on one tonight! Or a TV-series. Hmmm...
What would the team be?
Based where? Heck I might be able to help.
Well, I was thinking a 4-person team, because I think the dynamics work better with 4 (this is all just my personal opinion - feel free to comment otherwise - I'll listen, but I might not agree. I want to steer clear of all the weird-ass variant meta-types, and just stick to "core" metahumans. I'd also want to steer clear of any overly-specialized characters for the main 4. My thinking being (for both of these) that the weirder types can make good Contacts (recurring roles, but not in every episode) and adversaries. Don't want to flood the audience with all-out-weirdness straight out of the gates. I like to think of this approach as the BBB. You start with the main rulebook, and bring in the supplements as the series progresses.
It's tempting to set it in Seattle, because, far and away, Seattle has the most written about it, and even a casual player knows a thing or two about Seattle. I'd probably set it around the timeline of the beginning of SR4, for the same BBB reasons listed above.
Maybe this should go in it's own thread? That's if anyone is interested...
