Star City: Adventures At Hero High
Star City.

It's your home here on the West Coast of America.  Whether you were born here or your family relocated here, you couldn't imagine living anywhere else now.  You go to high school in Star City.  Your friends are cool, the teachers are lame (well, most of them, but there are some cool ones).

The city has everything: it's thirty minutes from some of the best beaches on the coast, it has a killer mall, there are awesome sports teams.  They just did something to the power grid last year, boasting about renewable power that'll keep the city going for a hundred years.

Most people know people with powers exist.  It's not like they're on every street corner.  The scientists say that it is very likely that the population of people with powers is one percent of one percent.  Normal people are scared of them, though.  That happens when a guy can melt your face with lasers out of his eyes or a girl can make you step out into traffic with just a thought.  People fear what they don't understand, and people don't understand people with powers.

Some of the people with powers were born with it and it manifested during some stressful moment (but not Algebra test stressful...real stress, like life or death stress).  Others had something happen to them that gave them powers.  There are even rumors that magic is real, aliens have visited the planet, and more.

The thing is, you're one of them.

Star City: Adventures at Hero High is a PL8 Mutants and Masterminds 2nd edition game.  Star City is a fictional city along the California coast, like Gotham City or Metropolis, where the characters will live and operate.

Your character goes to high school there.  At the beginning of the game, you will be a student in the public school system.  But soon, you will be invited to join a new school that has just opened for people like you.  It will be a place where you can learn without fear of accidentally revealing that you're different to the rest of the school (because nothing is worse in high school than being different).

There will be two schools available for characters to eventually choose.  One school will be very similar to Xavier's school from the X-Men.  The second school will not be so much of a brick-and-mortar school, but an organized, after-school effort to train young kids with abilities.
