Heroes In Their Own Minds (Superheroes Campaign)


Everyone has a first MMO they loved. Would you go back to yours if it came back to life?

It's the year 2079, a near-future that has seen the Earth reshaped by successive disasters like the rise of the sea level, acid rain and sky-shrouding storms. The privileged few live in arcologies , sheltered from the hostile environment by meters of bulletproof glass and steel. Many more live in the crumbling old cities that surround these arcologies, working in dull, mind-numbing jobs. VR MMOs are their escapes, furnishing them with the chance to live out their own fantasies.

In the 2060s, the superheroes VR MMO Mu Factor became a cult hit. Set in a near future like their own world, but one in which anyone might unlock superpowers in a moment of desperation, it offered the opportunity to experience freedom and power, the ability to choose their own destiny. Ten years went by in which Mu Factor enjoyed increasing success, weaving an ever-growing tapestry of players' stories... But in the end, Dantech made Programmable Realities Inc. an offer they couldn't refuse. In quick succession, the game was sold, then shut down, and its code base went into Dantech's new VR MMO, the Gloaming. All of the things players had made, the memories they had made with other players, were lost to the Great Bit Bucket.

Now in the year 2079, the lead designer for Mu Factor has come forward with a bold plan. With a coalition of true fans, he has been able to raise enough money to acquire the abandoned franchise from Dantech, and he has developed a new kind of VR MMO technology, one that will ensure Mu Factor will never be shut down again.

He has sent the call out to old players and new alike. Who will come to see Mu Factor be reborn?
