Everyone knows that superpowers come about through three distinct methods.
One can be born to their abilities, see them emerge in a moment of great strife, or acquire them through extensive cybernetic augmentation.
Everyone is wrong.
You’d know. If only that knowledge—and your snazzy slash horrible powers—didn’t come with a host of strings attached. Too bad that was an offer you couldn’t refuse.
Did I mention one of the strings was supervillainy?
Thrown headlong into a life of crime, balance conflicted loyalties, personal scars, and navigating a web of secrecy and deception, all while maintaining your cover.
Above all, remember to drink your Juice. Your life depends on it.
- Select a trump card for your powers… and try to cope with the side effects.
- Choose your combat speciality, and use it to take on the heroes!
- Befriend your fellow miscreants, or try to keep them at arm’s length.
- Will you follow the whims of your benefactor, or search for a way to slip free of their control?
Body horror. Graphic violence. Themes of addiction. Manipulation. References to torture.
Romantic Options (spoilers)
Mallory, AKA Wyrd (Nonbinary, any gender) - An irreverent smartmouth with a smile for any situation and so laid back they’re nearly horizontal. Just don’t start counting up how many of Mal’s smiles reach their eyes, or they might shapeshift some new ones to keep you guessing.
Wil, AKA Ghoul (Selectable, any gender) - Calm, genial, and easy-going, Wil’s there with a supportive word or a friendly joke for anyone that needs them. Hey, just because they’ve got a creepy costume and an unsettling power doesn’t mean they have to be all doom and gloom.
Teddie, AKA Fracture (Male, men only) - The definition of prickly, Teddie is curt, antisocial, and rather bitter. Can you blame him, when his skeleton is constantly growing, breaking, and reforming? Still, a romantic soul is in there somewhere, buried deep within the brambles. Shares a close bond with Kay, and he’s fiercely protective of her.
Kay, AKA Rampage (Female, any gender) - A dented optimist, Kay wants to look on the bright side, but life hasn’t always made it easy for her. She’s a little shy and known to brood, but her determination is absolutely boundless. Exceptionally close to Teddie, and she often worries about him.
Alistair (Male, any gender) - A good samaritan with endless patience, Alistair volunteers in his spare time and always has one eye on helping others. There’s just a couple of tiny problems. One: his well-meaning support could compromise your security. Two: he’s a completely normal human. Ahh I’m sure it’ll be fine.
CG, AKA Control Group (Female, any gender) - Snarky, sly, and playful, the good news about CG is that you’re both on the same side. The bad news is that maybe you don’t want to share said side. Still, for now, CG is mission control, no pun intended, and fully in your corner. Just don’t forget where her loyalties lie.
Hi, welcome to Villain Juice! I’m very excited to share this project with all of you! For Feedback, I’d appreciate hearing about any typos or bugs; I think I caught those but I’m sure some slipped through. However, mainly what I’m looking for is folks’ thoughts on the characters and the flow of the scenes. Do you feel as if your choices are reasonable and you have enough options? Are there any points where you’re not sure what’s going on? What do you make of the cast?
I look forward to hearing any and all commentary.
