Hello,

Just wanted to see if there was interest in a random-generated characters per Icons rules game set in the DC Universe. With the recent release of the fantastic Injustice 2 I had considered setting it after the end of the game in that universe, or perhaps a 'fresh' setting for the PCs to interact with.

If there is interest in DC Icons, what setting would you prefer, or do you have an idea for another campaign concept?

I'm not overly familiar with the game, but I'd be tentatively interested mostly because I want to try out Icons.

Why not just set it in the Icons universe.  There's already a bunch of characters pre-made to interact with and with randomly generated characters it's not like there's going to be an easy fit into the DCU, unless it's worked up (and probably shoehorned in given the nature of random powers).

I'd also suggest the better (and more up-to-date) Great Powers book.  Not only is there less of a chance of rolling up Dream Control, but there's better expression of powers so people don't feel let down by not only few powers, at low level, but also inapplicable ones (like Aquatic or Space Flight when the campaign never goes there).

Random or not. DC or fresh or Icons setting.

I'm interested in Icons, although I've only got kind of peripheral knowledge of the DC universe.

Ok, it seems like there is enough preliminary interest.

I will go with DC setting after Injustice 2's events, with the 'Good Ending'.

Random character generation with the Assembled Edition/Great Power supplement.

I'll start getting the game proper together this evening, get a summary up of Injustice's events if you aren't familiar and post it to a thread.

After I get that done I'll open up to recruitment and post here with a link.
