We've set up a podcast, the Gotham Database Podcast!

 


This podcast will take a look into the intricate world of Mayfair DC Heroes 3rd Edition, offering in-depth insight on the rules, modules, and occasionally, a captivating exploration of the '80s and '90s comics from DC Comics. Join us as we unravel the fascinating complexities of this iconic role-playing game and journey through the nostalgic realms of DC's comic universe.

As of right now, I have a trailer up as a place holder for this podcast as I start to plan the shows out, but I'll basically start with the DC Heroes 3e book and talk about things from there and move onto other things. As always a co-host is welcomed and hopefully in time someone will step up and fill the seat.

MTAD Press Release for the City of NightFall Bay

 


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nightfall Bay Division, Federal Bureau of Investigation

Nightfall Bay, 2023 — Recent developments in Nightfall Bay have brought to light a growing concern among citizens in response to the increasing presence of individuals with extraordinary abilities, often referred to as meta-humans. The rise of these meta-humans has prompted conversations about safety, security, and the role of law enforcement in dealing with these unique challenges.

The city of Nightfall Bay, which has long been known for its rich history and unique character, now finds itself grappling with a phenomenon that is becoming increasingly prevalent. These individuals, each with their own unique set of capabilities, have drawn attention and raised questions within the community. Some residents express admiration for these gifted individuals, while others fear the potential consequences of unchecked abilities.

In response to this rising concern, the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Nightfall Bay Division established the Meta-Human Threat Assessment Division (MTAD). MTAD, under the leadership of Director Samuel Bishop, has a critical mission to identify, track, and neutralize potential threats posed by meta-humans.

Director Bishop's uncompromising dedication to protecting the city's population, despite controversy, remains a central driving force. With over two decades of experience in the FBI, he takes a no-nonsense approach to the issue, focusing on the security of Nightfall Bay's residents.

As MTAD conducts its operations, the division has made significant strides in addressing the challenges posed by meta-human abilities. Their achievements can be attributed to the expertise of their specialized agents, state-of-the-art technology, and commitment to their mission.

Nonetheless, the division's methods have raised questions regarding civil liberties, raising concerns among segments of the community. Some believe that MTAD's approach may infringe on the rights of individuals who may not pose any threat to society.

Despite the ongoing debates, MTAD is resolute in its mission, committed to public safety. As the prevalence of meta-human activities continues to grow, the division remains dedicated to protecting the public.

The future of MTAD and Director Samuel Bishop remains uncertain, but one thing is clear – the rising number of meta-humans in Nightfall Bay has sparked a dialogue about safety, security, and the role of law enforcement in addressing these unique challenges.
