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
Suicide Squad is a Google Hangouts based game that runs Wednesday nights at 7pm 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 Task Force X. You can get more information about the history of the world on the History page. You can get more information about the history of Task Force X on the Suicide Squad 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.

Technical Details
I know this might limit some players, but the game is ran using Google Hangouts and the Dicestream Hangout App. Dicestream only works over video feeds so you will need access to a computer and webcam in order to play. If you use any of the Hangout links on this site it should bring up Dicestream automatically for you.

We have had a few players try to join in using various tablets and the quality of the connection has always been disruptive to the game. If you just want to hang out and watch using a tablet is fine but they just don’t work for playing.

Characters
The Suicide Squad is an antihero team of incarcerated super-villains, as such characters are assumed to fit that criteria. When you’re ready to start working on your character check out the Recruitment section. You'll find a form that will guide you through the basics.

Closing Comments
There is a LOT more information scattered around this site, but hopefully that gives you an idea of whats going on here and where to get started. Like always, if you have any questions feel free to e-mail me (Suicide-Squad@RobJustice.net).
