Twenty-six years ago an alien space ship crashed onto planet Earth changing how humanity viewed itself for ever. Some of the aliens were captured alive and it was discovered that the aliens were coming to consume us.
At that time the nations of the world put aside their petty differences and using the authority of the UN formed the United Nations Voluntary Earth Defence Force, (UNVED). Thousands of volunteers from all nations converged on a high tech lab where alien technology had been fused with human ingenuity to produce startling results.
The process developed at this lab was used to genetically improve the volunteers and turn them into the superheroes of legend.
When the Alien fleet landed, their hideously varied hordes were met by an equally varied array of super-powered warriors with truly incredible powers.
Perhaps the most powerful of them all was 'Manhattan' - who laid down his own life to destroy several alien motherships. The six mile-wide glassy crater he left behind is, to this day, a potent symbol of the sacrifices that were made in this struggle for humanity's future.
With these magnificent warriors humanity defeated the alien force and drove them from our planet.
Twenty five years later we celebrate the end of the war, and honour their sacrifice, with the last remaining veterans.
Today is the reception to present medals to the last remaining veterans. Scores may be settled and secrets revealed.
Team Brit brings you another game written at the Peaky Writing Weekend. This one has a rather more serious and darker flavour than some of our other offerings.
There are no major costuming requirements - the game is a vice-presidential reception, so anything vaguely formal looking will do fine. There are opportunities for some characters to wear super-hero costumes, if desired.
Reading expectations: character sheets are about 8 sides of A4, and a few pages of additional background briefing material for most characters.
