(Edit: This is my second attempt at making a game using choice script, keep in mind it’s very rough around the edges)
After finishing season 3 of Daredevil, a familiar idea I had before arose in my head after watching episode 1, why not make a series or book using superhero genre, but from a government perspective? In superhero genres, institutions are often ignored or authorities seem to be way out of their league.
For example, Marvels S.H.I.E.L.D. gives some perspective of how the government deals with powered individuals, but this is overlooked later in the series with other arcs and storylines.
If I take a historical example of let’s say state authorities dealing with increasingly dangerous and armored individuals, look at the creation of the term “SWAT” teams, according to the Historical Dictionary of Law Enforcement, the term: “Special Weapons and Tactics”. It was first established as a specialized 100 man unit, utilizing officers packing more heat than your average beat cop, in response to increasing bank robberies and later, situations dealing with heavily armed criminals.
Morsus Mihi Has you playing in the role of a Law Enforcement unit specialized in dealing with Super-Powered individuals
You the MC, will be born with No Powers. Nada, your just a basic human who can do extraordinarily human feats, but, not superhuman.
Now before I get off track, onto the summary------>
Morsus Mihi takes place in the fictional city of Ryse-Elson,
You play as an officer/agent working for the Ryse-Elson Agency, a statewide law enforcement agency, that investigates or responds to superhuman related incidents and situations. It is headquartered in the city where it was founded in.
By the time you are an adult, the idea of real-life superheroes to most people will have been a reality for the past 2 years. It will be a time where; increasing amounts of Epics are born and begin emerging into the spotlight, governments beginning to find ways to classify an regulate powered individuals, the morality and damage of a Super-heroes method, are slowly called into question.
Deus Ex Machina, aka Deus.
Estimated Age(before death): 30-35
Documented Powers: Superstrength, durability, resistance to small arms & light weapons fire, shock absorption.
Note: Researchers still have not come up with a term for this final power or an explanation on how it works, but, Deus in times of extreme duress, was able to temporarily induce opponents into a paralysis by simply staring at them.
Deus was the first ever documented Super to emerge into the public eye, stemming from the name, his trademark signature was seemly arriving almost always at the right time. He made his first appearance during a hostage situation at the movie theaters were five heavily armed men had taken 50 hostages in the basement levels of a movie theater, their demands, one of their colleagues being released from incarceration. Just as they were about to begin executing hostages, Deus arrived and simply looked at them, paralyzing the captors entirely.
