It’s been months since you’ve been able to do anything for yourself. The cancer took all that away from you. It took your strength, your endurance, maybe even your will to live. All that changed the day the Agent came to visit you. He spoke of a drug that would let you get up and do things for yourself again. He spoke of power, limitless power. All you had to do was choose to take it. It wasn’t even a choice, really. Given the option of becoming a god or staying tied to your hospital bed, it’s rather obvious.
So you took the drug.
It’s not a cure. Oh no. In fact, the drug’s effects are likely to kill you faster than your condition would have. But you’re out of bed. And you can do things! Things that most people only dream of. Now you’re a pawn of Speed Silver Enterprises, sent out on mission after mission. You’ve got loose ends to tie up before you kick the bucket. Will you find the time?
Threshold: Tragic Superheroes is a game of last chances. What would you do with your last days on Earth if you were given super-powers? In Threshold, the patients allow you to explore this question while becoming one of three Archetypes: Buffer, Psych or Kinetic.
Buffers have unlimited super strength and can perform feats dreamed of only in comic books.
Psychs are masters of manipulation, controlling others impulses and desires with their mind.
Kinetics move objects with a thought and can control the movement of any inanimate object.
