Ok, i've had the Heroes ulimited players guide for about a year and a half, maybe 30 preconstructed characters of varying OCCs and alignments and levels, and the GM's guide for about 6 months. I've played a long running game of D&D 3rd, and a shorter game of Heroes, and a slew of D&D 2nd. That's about all my experience. Now i got about 4 good friends who are all interested in gaming, but are total, utter, absolute newbies. I mean greenest of the green.
I've never DMed before, but i feel as though i have a good grasp (if not mastery) of the nuances of the Heroes System. In short, i want to get a campaign started, but i am clueless as to what the hell to do for a story that's easy enough for the players. I sort of want something straight forward, but i cannot for the life of me think of anything. The first premade adventure in the DM's guide seems to look like my best bet (the zoo thing, if anyone knows the book) but i am looking for back up options. Also, the story arcs (campaigns i guess you call them, my sp33k is w34k, haha) need to be basic in the rules department with combat and such so i can show them the ropes.
I've ghosted this board for a while, btw, and Ga's post a few posts below me about newbiedom was very helpful.
