How my subconscious made me into Captain A. Marek

  I love Captain America. No joke. Steve Rogers played by Chris Evans is my favorite superhero, hands down. When I had the chance to play an Unchained Heroes campaign with my friends, I chose to be a Paladin and make him just like the Captain. I intended to emulate him in actions and deeds and not be a direct copy of him, but my subconscious played a little trick on me. Without realizing it, my character took on his full persona and then paid homage to his name when I made an alias for him.

I’m on vacation this week, so I am a little light on the writing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share stories. Tell us about your Unchained Heroes or general RPG stories this week in the comments. I will start. We adventured in the Land of Eld this week, uncovered an ancient mansion that housed a dark entity. Facing dark being after dark being, we made it through the mansion to finally face the source of the disturbance. After a well fought battle, we defeated it; throwing around spirit spells, attacking it with undead minions, and hexing it into oblivion. A Necromancer...
