Redemption is a standard four-color campaign featuring reformed
criminals trying to become heroes to atone for past sins. The player
characters will fight to protect the public against villains and
villainous agencies. They may also have to fight heroes and/or hero
groups to maintain their freedom. The player characters must be willing
to learn to work together.
Importance of the Player Characters:
Very Important. While there are other heroes in the world, the player
characters are effectively central to everything in this campaign. There
will occasionally be crossovers with NPC heroes, as well as characters
from other campaigns.
The Global Guardians Universe is a four-color comic book world
full of larger than life characters. Technology is more
advanced that the real world, and magic is real. Aliens
and creatures of legend roam the earth.
The Story So Far...:
The Redemption Project is just getting off the ground. No one knows
where the money is coming from, or why. All that is known, and this by
very few people, is that it was started to give metahumans who have run

prevent a particular meta from being considered. These three are murder,
rape and kidnapping.

authorities are taking a wait and see approach with the team. If the
former identities of the team members get out, they can be expected to
be met with fear and hostility.
Morality: There is
some crossover between good and evil. Things will not always be black
and white. Characters may find themselves making difficult decisions,
but should always try to be good guys.

Characters won't die unless they show themselves to be too stupid to
live or are going out in a blaze of glory. How you role-play the
character will do a great deal to determine the realism of the game, so
please put some soul into your characters.

were a few bumps along the way. Most of the time the character's efforts
will be rewarded.

that there is no room for humor. Witty repartee, creative use of powers,
and the way you play should provide plenty of humor in the midst of even
the direst situation.

effects on later scenarios, and continuity will be enforced. Adventures
