The Epics are Coming – Part 1
I’ve got some cool news, bad news, and good news. First, the cool news: people have started gaining super powers! Comic books are coming to life. Now the bad news: only bad people get these super powers. Really bad people. They are known as Epics. You know what that means. Mayhem and destruction ending in dictatorial rule. We the People are now We the Subservient. Are you ready for the good news now? I thought you might be. Here it is: all Epic’s have a weakness. That’s right! No matter how powerful they are they have a hidden weakness that can be exploited to take them down! Oh, I forgot to mention that their weakness is hidden? Well, I didn’t say this good news was all good. But even if they are hidden there are ways of finding them out and exploiting them. Hello and welcome to the Reckoners! We are the last hope of average humanity. We devote ourselves to the study and removal of the Epic’s that rule over us. Care to join up? It’s quite dangerous and the benefit package mostly consists of weapons. There’s no guarantee of survival against these beings with god-like powers but there is hope that we can deliver a better tomorrow for the normal people.
Rise of the Epics is a cooperative game that puts players in the roles of Reckoner team members. They must operate in a hostile and dangerous city while collecting evidence to research the Ruling Epic’s weakness, remove them from power, and bring peace to the people of the city.
