The Trial of Metahumans Rising pt 1


Hello and welcome to The Trials. Our new system play test Actual Play podcasts from The Rpg Academy. These games are from one-shots of us playing a new system and giving it a trial run.  This is the Trial of Metahumans Rising from HouseDok Productions.

Super-science, magic, and Metahumans come together to create a rich comic book world uniquely its own and maintaining the hallmarks of the genre. Superheroes protect the world from mad mutants, evil organizations bent on world domination, corrupt government groups that seek to control Metahumans, or have them neutralized and deal with intergalactic conquerors seeking to harvest the Earth for their own reasons.
The last decade has changed the world forever. Beginning with the Ar’Dysis invasion and the Lensing Conflict, the Earth has survived threats not seen before. In the wake of these events, the world is left with a need for new heroes; beacons of hope willing to take up the fight against the forces of evil and corruption.

Using the Open Action System, Players are able to create virtually any hero they can imagine. While rules for running individual heroes or creating their own world class superteam exist, the Open Action System is designed for fast creative play that rewards characters for their backgrounds, talents, and creativity.

Take on super powered street gangs. Go toe to toe with the terrifying forces of Chimera, who use stolen science and an army of mutating Drifters to fuel their criminal empire. Seek out lost cities or go to the stars to face the intergalactic empire of the Zo. The world needs heroes. Are you ready to rise?

In this first episode we are introduced to the game and briefly cover some of the mechanics by the creator David Silva. Michael (@TheRpgAcademy) takes on the role of Bulwark – the living volcano, Matt (@MattParody) takes on the role of Lady Night and the Crunch Master himself, Caleb (@TheCalebG) takes on the role of Crossfire

  1. I’m always interested in anything that has to do with superheroes, but at this point, it seems like not that much has happened thus far. I think that it needed to be a bit more focused to start. However, I think that the system could be pretty cool, minus Michael’s voice. Definitely needs to go to the Doctor to check that out, probably stop smoking so much, which might be an issue being a Volcano.

    Loved the volcano voice.

    Any particular reason this episode isn’t subtitled “The Bronado?”
