We all know the story. A rocket ship landing in Kansas. A boy whose parents are gunned down in front of him. A mythical baby sculpted from the clay of her mother's queendom. They joined together, with many other heroes, to form one of the world's premiere superhero teams, taking note from a predecessing team. They even spawned younger generations to take up the cape and cowl and fight for justice.
The Justice League weren’t the only costumed heroes saving the world; the Justice Society, the Teen Titans, the Doom Patrol and countless others also fought to protect the innocent.
Time continued to move on. Somehow, our heroes found time to have families when they weren't saving the world. Superhuman parents, for the most part, had superhuman offspring, and metahuman abilities continued to appear in the children of baseline humans. The new generation of heroes and villains has been born, and are beginning to come into their own.
DC - NextGen is a second generation DC Heroes journal RPG. While it deals with the next generation of heroes, the setting is sent in the present. The timeline roughly departs from canon in 1988, though we tend to look at it as a loose guideline. Characters from beyond that point and concepts beyond that point have been used with our current players
We have a strong preference for players who are 18 and over, due to the themes often addressed in this RPG.
