We'll be using Masks: A New Generation. It's about teenage superheroes on a team in a world where there are adults around, trying to figure life out. Think Teen Titans, Young Justice, etc.

My rules:
1) Don't be a jerk. I will PM you if something seems like it is becoming a problem, and we'll talk about it.
2) Dialogue in a unique color, OOC in orange when it's in an IC thread, try to write in more or less understandable English.
3) Choose a profile image for your character. It just makes everything easier for me to keep track of.
4) Ideal posting frequency: once every 1-2 days. I get that life happens and sometimes that will be hard. If you'll be gone for a while, let everyone else know and we'll figure out how to deal with it.

For this game in particular:
1) Powered by the Apocalypse games are fiction-first (which I think is pretty cool). That means you don't just name-drop a move and roll dice. Instead, you should describe what your character is trying to do in the fiction, and if that matches a move description, we'll roll dice.

2) Since this is pbp, if seems like you're triggering a move, go ahead and roll it in that post.

3) Actions can happen simultaneously, and we will work together to figure out exact timing if that ever becomes important.

4) Tonally, I feel like Young Justice or Runaways is pretty close - they have fun, they do crazy superhero stuff, they get in trouble, they have the feels, and at the end of the day, everyone learns something and maybe stops an alien invasion.

If that sounds good, please RTJ.

For the RTJ, I'd like from you:

1) Past experience with PbtA and pbp. (Newbies welcome).

2) Whether or not you have a copy of the rules. (It's easier if everyone does, but the game is simple enough that I don't think it is mandatory.)

3) Playbooks you'd be interested in using. We'll stick to the main book. (If you don't know the rules, either you can tell me a concept you're interested in or I could give you the list of playbooks).

4) A short paragraph or two detailing a teenage superhero's reaction to a challenge they probably can't handle.
