Imaginary Consequences, November 19–22, 2015, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset
You’re all normal people at a bar. Everyone around you is getting on with their lives – they’re perfectly normal, just like you.
Except that you weren't normal before. You were superheroes, the saviours of Herotopia, though you don’t remember it. No one does. The whole world was changed, and the history that you used to know no longer exists, and never existed. But it’s trying to reassert itself.
What happens if it does? Why did everything change in the first place? You're the only ones with the answers.
This is a short, but surprisingly packed game. For the first hour or so, we'll make up characters and invent some shared history between them: this works a bit like a tabletop roleplaying game and it's a lot of fun. For the second hour-and-a-bit, we'll play the superheroes as they realise who they are and decide about the future of the world.
Play this game if you like superheroes trying to overcome their differences and save the world. Don't play this game if you want an intense, Nordic-style emotional experience. It's a fun game, which feels like a superhero film: think of the X-Men, Superman or Avengers films.
