Honestly, my favorite RPPR episode so far. So much, that I'd want to run it on MIRC. Too bad everyone hear has heard it.

Regardless, does anyone have any ideas how many points were used to make the PCs and enemy super heroes?
What about the Alien...I am highly curious to see his spread :p

I definitely plan to release a write up of the scenario as a reward for the upcoming RPPR Kickstarter. That being said, I used Candide's stats from the New Arcadia campaign for the alien.

All PCs were in the 200-250 point range I think. I don't remember exactly.

Well, that would be the first KickStarter I would actually feel compelled to donate to.

Where is Candide's stats?

Regardless, I look forward to that Kickstarter GREATLY. I already have 4 players. :)

I really liked the concept, waking up in a facility with powers. Hits quite a bit to the right fanbase (Portal would have been more fun with super powers though)

That fanbase too. You hit at, the very least, two fan bases.

...Wait...so which came first. New Arcadia or Zombies and Caped Cannibals.

New Arcadia I think. Caped Cannibals isn't technically canon for New Arcadia or if it is, it's an alternate version of New Arcadia.

Well I wait with baited breath *sniff sniff. Eats a tic tac* for the start of the kickstarter, even though I plan to run an IRC game in the spirit of yours within the next week.

Yeah, they were made for a oneshot. Character points/costs become less important when the pregens aren't going to be used more then one session.

/me goes about calculating point totals based on his knowledge of the system.
Karen. Calculates 128 (16+16+16+9+36+23+12) points for things no super (including will, and giving first base stat point free.) Permission Super+ (15pts)? + Source Genetic (Free) + 5HD of PsuedoInvulnerability (? per HD)
Karen throws me for a loop though.  I wonder what flaws she had on her invulnerability to make her susceptible to suffocation, poison, and disease.
