Three Years Ago…

Three years prior to the story Dr. David Darhk discovered the Darhkworld, a dimension which contains vast amounts of energy, and was tricked by the an evil organization into building "the Energy Well", a means of harvesting this energy, to reach a sinister goal. However, when the well was opened it created a massive power surge which caused a global blackout for twenty-four hours, killing thousands and causing many people to develop super-powers. During this time of crisis, a villainous force rose in a power grab, but was defeated by Champion a famous super-hero, who disappeared afterwards.

Dr. Darhk is changed in the experiment and now is a conduit for a powerful demonic entity imprisoned in the Darhkworld. The doctor goes back and forth between his personalities. The doctor can also see into the Darhkworld.


Various factions wish to build a second energy well as they believe the disaster of the first well can be avoided and the energy of the Darhkworld may be harnessed to change the world.

Prof Nguyen wants to stop the alien invasion and save the world. He wants to find and mentor the superheros to be his minions to not only fight for him, but to earn their trust and allow him to rise to domination afterward.

He has built a computer with a giant screen that can detect bursts of Darhk Energy. He uses this machine to detect the usage of superpowers, to find villains for his heroes to fight, or allies to join the team.

Figure out villain power levels and when to introduce them. Think of set pieces for the battles.

As the game progresses, Prof. Nguyen talks about the I CHing and about the flows of energy, not unlike what weterners call Ley Lines. The energy well has changed these energies into four rivers of equal angles leading to small nexi. These are the Eight Demon Gates. They must be closed.

Villains guide

  • Each hero should have at least 3 villains, including an arch nemesis.
  • Arch Nemeses have PL 11-12
  • The Arch nemesis will have nearly (if not entirely) identical powers, but an opposite ideology. Usually the arch nemesis will share the hero's power origin.
  • The other villains will specifically be designed to counteract an aspect of the hero, so the hero must rely on their other aspects to defeat them. Is the hero strong? A villain that cannot be broken. Are they fast? a villain that counters their speed. etc.
  • Personal rogue's gallery villains are PL 6-10
  • The villains all use an opposite color of the hero in their costumes. A red costumed hero will have lots of green costumed villains.
  • Super villains meant to challenge the whole group are PL 14-15
  • World Shattering villains meant for multiple hero groups to team up in a crossover-style event are 19-20

Sidekicks and allies

  • Plant the seeds early for potential sidekicks for each hero.
  • Sidekicks will also have nearly (if not entirely) identical powers, but with a shared goal with the hero. However, the sidekick usually eventually comes to have differing ideas of how to meet that goal.
  • Sidekicks are PL 8
  • Each super also needs a Guy in the Chair.
  • Also have the opportunity to form a super-family as time goes on. Sidekick, gender-flipped, dark mirror (Azrael, Venom), half-powered version (Doc Samson), alt reality version (Miles Morales, Power-Girl), son/daughter (Spider-girl, Damian Wayne), copycat (batwoman), love interest
