As an explanation, Harbor City is a long running campaign with my friends here in Seattle. It's gone through several different systems, from Savage Worlds, to PDQ, and even ICONS. It ranges from Mystery Men level heroes to A-List supers. I've run a couple of scenarios on the Sunday Skypers and wouldn't mind running a few more in the future.
But to the point for the current topic:
Crisis Angel is a douchebag
Debbie Farnsworth is just another teenager at Montague High, or so it seems. In reality, she's more than that, she's a Magical Girl, gifted with superpowers... if she could figure out how to use them properly. The other Magical Girls at Monty High treat her like a bomb waiting to go off. Because, despite being a bit of drama queen and accident prone ditz, when she gets her act together, she is the most power Magical Girl around. But for most of the time, she's Crisis Angel. And she's a bit of a douchebag about it.
So for this game, one person gets the Ditz/Stupid ball and has to run with it. I'd use Ewen (Pronounced Aaron) Cluney's Magical Fury rule system for this. Debbie, AKA the Crisis Angel, starts out with a shift when she first assumes her magical girl form, either a Magical or Trauma shift, depending on how evil the GM is. (Shifts are bad 2 out of 3 times in the game, and to have her start out with one...) and everyone around her has to deal with it. By starting her out with a bad shift, you make it more certain for her to experience an Extreme Shift. Which can be bad for everyone.
You need a player who doesn't mind being the Butt Monkey for the game, but as always, can have a Crowning Moment of Awesome on occasion. While being a complete douchebag about at the same time...
And the obligatory story pitch:
The Maya God-King, 6 Rabbit, has a mission for you, if you choose to accept it.
