A few people seemed interested, so let's do this! Fallen Hero: Rebirth is a work of interactive fiction by Malin Rydén about a telepathic ex-superhero's rise to villainy. It's an entirely text-based choose-your-own-adventure, not to mention one of the most fun and best-executed role-playing experiences I've ever had — so I figured it was basically asking for a cooperative forum let's play. I'll be giving all choices to the thread to vote on as they come up: plot, character creation, romance options, etc. (Naturally it will be a while before we reach some of those — although hey, if you find yourself having Opinions™ on our character's name/hairstyle/sexual orientation/fashion sense, by all means discuss them at your leisure.) A few general content notes for anyone who wants them: Spoiler: Content warnings We're playing a telepathic aspiring supervillain with a dark past, so expect consistently high levels of: • mind reading/control/manipulation/alteration • assorted PTSD symptoms, ranging in severity from "moderate" to "bordering on psychological horror" • the sort of dubious ethics/consent issues inherent in deceiving everyone you know Certain sections of the story very heavily involve suicide. I'll warn for these when they come up. While the descriptions are more matter-of-fact than gratuitous, the game isn't shy about describing serious, and occasionally gruesome, injury and pain. I'll warn for the worst instances when they come up. (I'm happy to answer further questions or provide more specific warnings if anyone would like; just let me know in a reply or DM.) The next post is reserved for story and character recaps; actual game text starts after that.
