Tonight I trotted out Prowlers & Paragons for my kids to run them through a quick introductory session. It worked out well, although the dice were all over the place. Mac played Kroxigor, a monstrous reptile-man while Macy played Menagerie, a shape-shifter.
Kroxigor was one of the passengers on TransGlobal flight 246 which was attacked by the mysterious chemical gas. Menagerie was actually a dog in the hold of the plane, now able to turn into a human. Another passenger, a petty criminal, also gained powers which he used to burgle the nightclub where Kroxigor (prior to his transformation) was working as a bouncer. In trying to stop the burglar, Kroxigor turned into his reptilian form and with Menagerie's help managed to recover the money, even though the burglar escaped using his elongating powers.
Need answers about what has happened, Krox and Menagerie seek out Dr. Tom Gilcrest, the scientist who investigated the initial attack and a employee of Equinox Labs. While meeting Dr. Gilcrest, the lab is attacked by Kesarex, a mysterious supervillain who intimated that he was not from Earth. As the two heroes battled Kesarex's Shadow Warriors, Kesarex downloaded data from the lab's computers regarding the flight's passengers and teleported away.

The game was such a huge hit that Mac immediately wanted to know when I would be running the game with the group.
