So I'm thinking of starting up a Superhero game, I've never used Fate before. I could use some advice. My goal is to try to capture some of that feel of My Hero Academia where it is a world of Super Powered individuals. My players will be Professional Heroes on the streets of Camelot Michigan.

The adventure they will be dealing with beneath the layers they create at the first session deals with the rise of the League of Villans. A secrete international society dedicated to bringing down the modern society based around Super Heroes.

I am though left with questions. Fate or Fate Accelerated? Fate Accelerated seems easier to use and for my players to learn. Fate core seems more crunchy but that isn't always a good thing for a superhero game.

But another question is how do I handle super powers? One of the big things in Hero Academia is that all superpowers have a sort of limiter or weakness attached. Looking at a sample character (Todoroki) we can start to see this. Todoroki who is 1/2 ice, 1/2 fire can create ice at a will, great walls and formations of the stuff. But if he over uses this power it freezes his own body causing him damage. If he over uses his fire size it is likely he will burn himself.

My first though is to have them make their character normally and then their super power almost as another character with separate attributes, and possibly stunts reflecting the nature of the power, plus I can do something like pushing their powers. Their powers stress track ticks up but they get an extra bonus and do things like that, but I'm not sure how good of an idea it would be. After all, is it a good idea to give the power it's own trouble and a negative condition it causes the owner when it's stress level reaches max?

So for 5E has anyone thought of doing a Warlock patron for the Titans? Just asking before I start into doing that.

Sometimes you wonder, do we attach too much meaning to light side, and dark side. Are we making them more good and evil than they really are?

My friend could use everyone's help.  Please, take a moment and give her a hand.  Her mother is rather abusive to her and she really does need to get out of that home.
