Player characters are now sophomores in high school (15 years old, generally) in August, 2010 in a fictional city called Neptune in Michigan approximately half way between Ann Arbor and East Lansing
(Michigan Wolverines and Michigan State Spartans).
In this world, there are no other heroes. You are just starting to get your powers and determine how to control them. Players will start with one power, whatever it is (ex. ice, fire, whatever).
The purpose of the game is to balance the high school experience with the potential heroing duties. (How would your character deal with being at the Homecoming Dance and potentially having to run out on your date to stop a baddy, for example?) Such are the decisions of a high school hero.
