New players need someplace to help get them started with a game. There is a LOT of information scattered around this site and it can be difficult to follow all the threads. I created this Getting Started guide to help with that.

Overview
Motor City Avengers is a table-top role-playing game that runs _____ nights at __pm CST. It’s set in a fictional universe that combines lore from multiple comic book sources. Players take control of a troupe of characters who work with the Avengers. You can get more information about the history of the world on the History page. 

Game System
The game system is based on Cortex+ Action Roleplaying, the same engine that powered the Leverage RPG. There are some small modifications pulling from Cortex+ Drama (the Smallville system), Cortex+ Heroic (the Marvel Heroic system), and a few non-Cortex+ games as well. Those changes are detailed in the System section of the site. You find find links to buy all the above mentioned products on the Cortex+ page.

Characters
The Avengers are a super-hero team operating out of New York City, as such characters are assumed to fit that criteria.
