People tend to make sure to be badass and don't care about the story. Too busy making sure their character stays on top at every situation. If they only knew that in reality if you go back to the good old days people were mostly recognized for catching a beating while still looking good rather than for just been an un-killable "Badass". It shock value people. "Hollysh!t Gambler died!" You know? Or "Batgirlbabs was paralyzed by Kurrent!" That makes things interesting, creates rivalries and a great new plot. How is Gambler returning? How will Batgirlbabs get her ability to walk? How dangerous will she be once she does?
They were awesome RPGs by the way.
True. One of the most memorable RPG's from when I first got here was one where Kurrent wasbrainwashed by Evil Sha into thinking he was her son. Anyone else might've seen that as a weak role but Kurrent played it expert. Sold the fact but also kept his character strong and badass.
