Superhero Campaign Questionnaire (and about the Virtual Book Club…)

Some days ago I posted about questionnaires for superhero games in preparation for an upcoming game. DarkTouch was so kind as to share one he had written and posted it in his blog. This really inspired me and I started to put together my one version. This is a very particular campaign, its set in the world outside your window, nothing outwardly different until an incident in the near future causes a worldwide disaster. In the aftermath, as the world picks up the pieces, a small percentage of the world population begins to manifest superpowers. What will they do? How will government react?

I serialized some fiction specific to the campaign here in the blog. In case you are interested in learning more about the background accompanying this questionnaire you can read it in these posts: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4 and part 5. I hope the questionnaire is useful to you or inspires you to create your own.

I created it specifically for my players, and while you may not agree with my examples I selected them because I believe those are references my players will understand. Here is a link to the PDF. As always I welcome your feedback, reactions and suggestions. Thanks for reading!

This all ties to the Virtual Book Club reading of the DC Adventures book I was supposed to write at the beginning of the month. I apologize for the delay, real life has kept me too busy to write a proper report on my experience, but fear not, I still plan to write the post, more than likely after Thanksgiving. I apologize for keeping those interested (all two of you) waiting. Keep the faith.

Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!

  1. Thanks for the shout out. I'm glad you liked it. I'm still reading it but wanted to point out that the link you posted is for the Word version of the file, not the pdf.

  2. I'm looking at the questionnaire now. I'm not sure if I'm still invited to play, but I'll be answering the questionnaire anyways. Gotcha on the no alien or weird race stuff. I can still be a human possessed by an elemental that was resurrected by the disaster right? I just need to explain how or why my character was near such a being.

    If not, I'll just think of something else.

  3. I would be interested also in your campaign. I´m reading your questionnaire and would send it to you completed. I hope my English is good enough, as it is not my first language.

  4. @DarkTouch you are welcome, I am very thankful that you shared your questionnaire. Thanks for noticing it was the Word version I had linked to, that is corre4cted and now it links to a PDF.

    @Yanny, my friend I would love to have you play with us BUT right now we have no space to fit another player in the group, and I mean this physically, we can’t fit another body in the room. I thought we might be playing somewhere with more space soon but it doesn’t look like it will happen soon. Sorry! Still I would love to read your character concept.

    @Dark Star, thanks… Where are you from? What is your first language? If you answer it n Spanish I can read it! Even if you don’t play with us I’d love to read your take on the questionnaire.

    1. ¡Hey! lo ha adivinado, soy español. Perdon, yo entendí que la partida se haría a traves de la Red. Bueno, no importa, le enviaré el cuestionario de todas formas. Gracias por su tiempo.

  5. Dark Star, debe ser un sexto sentido, ¡me imaginé que hablabas español! Soy Puertorriqueño así que el inglés también es para mí un segundo idioma. Mucho gusto. (and now back to posting in English)

    1. Para mi también es un placer. Lo lamento, pero, estos días tengo bastante trabajo, y no me esta resultando fácil rellenar el cuestionario. Pero, tarde o temprano se lo enviaré.
