A Senator Without A Senate

Sep 17, 2017

This story was a tie in to a previous supers game where I was the primary GM. One of the other player/GMs in that introduced the Legion and Senators. Since they were reality jumpers they were a perfect fit for Nexus so I threw them in.

 Frankly the story is lacklustre, but I think it had enough to possibly prod some ideas into existence.

I come from a reality where the Human Roman Empire never fell. It just kept going and going, until we evolved beyond our humanoid forms and into what others call "giant blue bipedal ants." Then the Legion took control and ousted the Senate.

My ancestors were Senators, and now I'm one. A refugee fleeing across realities always away from the Legion. Sometimes I see them in Nexus. Technically they can't hunt us here, but knowing the Legion, they're preparing to conquer Nexus just like they have all the other realities they've encountered.
