Destined: Flash Mob

I've been waiting for Destined from The Design Mechanism for the Mythras system for awhile and was very excited when it released last week. It has exceed my already high expectations and I hope to get to do something with it soon. I was able to make Flash Mob in about 30 minutes but did use the Quick Character Method included in the book. Destined is a complete RPG in one book and does not need Mythras, however I cannot recommend The Design Mechanism enough. Their work is exceptional and prolific, something I feel that Chaosium still hasn't figured out how to do. Additionally, they offer a simple licensing situation which is very attractive especially compared to Chaosium's Basic Role Play SRD.

Doctor Jon Martin Cooper Jr. is the oldest son of Jon Martin Cooper Sr. and Dr. Lena Cooper.  His parents met while going to college at Texas State University in Houston.  After graduating, they married and moved to San Diego, California with Lena becoming a biochemist at Future Perfect and Jon Sr. becoming an guidance counselor at Sizemore High School.

Jon Jr. or JJ's science and math scores were off the chart and after graduating high school at 15, he was offered a full scholarship from Future Perfect in exchange for a 3 year contract upon graduation.

JJ, only 19 when he gained his PhD in Biotechnology, took a position on a Future Perfect team in Abilene, TX led by his Mom's best friend, Dr. Jill Chandler.  Jill's team was working on several solutions to help veteran's that had lost limbs and they were given access to material from Project Apogee which lead to the creation of the first Minuteman, the speedster who helped pacify Iraq in a matter of hours during the first Gulf War. Unknown to JJ one of his co-workers botched opening the container housing the extraterrestrial Isotope X that was used to create Minuteman and the whole team was exposed to it.

JJ woke up 22 days later to find that he, Jill, and Dr. Ajax Zang were the only survivors of the breach. Within hours after waking he was interviewed by the the U.S. Defense Department and the United Nation's anti-metahuman task force, ECHELON, with both organizations seeking to put him through a barrage of tests to determine if he was a metahuman.

He chose to work with ECHELON as they also had an interest in his biotechnology background in their quest to trace illegal derivatives of Isotope X such as Summit and Apotheosis. On the second day of testing they discovered that he could create duplicates of himself and he eventually chose the codename Flash Mob. He has inquired about Dr. Chandlers and Zang's fate but has been told that information is classified at this time.

For ECHELON he is part of King Savage's INDIGO team with Headstrong, Jumpjet, and Operator.
