One day you were normal… and then you weren’t — you had powers! Some call you a superhero and others a freak. Do you cling to your humanity or let your powers become you?

Unstoppable Power is a game about a superhero who’s power grows to a point where it becomes harder to relate to their friends and family and even the world around them. As their power transforms them into gods they struggle to maintain their humanity. Think Dr Manhattan, who eventually left Earth to live away from on Mars. Or Jean Grey as she became overcome by the Phoenix Force.

The game is a playtest hack of Bluebeard’s Bride. Like Bluebeard’s Bride, there is one character, all played by the players as a group. Each player plays a part of the superhero’s psyche which is an aspect of their humanity. When the hero embraces their power, they stand a chance of shattering their psyche and loosing as aspect of their humanity, even if it is to save the one they love. The story will fast forward through time so we can see the hero’s full transformation from their inception to their eventual godhood.
