Span Order

There are a several distinct phases that each Span is split down into. These reflect either points where information/action is required by the player or where feedback is provided by the GM’s.

Update Phase Each phase starts with a general update of your sheet and information that’s available to you. The visible Goals and Beliefs of your Friends and Comrades are updated. Your Kudos, Edges and Capabilities are also updated in this phase and any Confidence Or Karma Earned in the previous phase is added. Importantly you are provided with the results of any scouting actions that you took in the previous Phase.
Group RP Session Now that you have had a chance to review all the new information available to you, it’s time to get all the characters in the game together in one place and let them Politic, shoot the breeze and plan their missions.
Leaders Designate Mission Based on the discussions that they had in the RP session the team leaders pick the Mission that their team is going to go on this Span.
Missions Run The GM’s will total up the Capabilities of the entire team going on the mission and then test each of the Challenges within the mission in order. If any test is failed, the GM’s will spend Karma, Confidence and Expertise to overcome the Challenges where possible. This means that later Challenges become progressively harder to overcome.
Mission Consequences Issued A mission is always completed by the team that attempts it. You are playing superheroes after all. What’s important is not whether you win or loose. But, what the victory cost you. After the mission is completed the GM’s will give a list of Consequences to the team leader.
Mission Consequences Assigned The Team Leader is responsible for planning the mission and they are the one that decides what risks each member of the team will be taking. To represent this, the team leader has sole responsibility for picking which team member will receive each Consequence.
Actions Submitted The Phase is ends with the opportunity to spend your action points for the next phase.
