Hey Johnny, did you color this post red because your role PM was red, or was it really an arbitrary color?

It REALLY WAS an arbitrary color. Mostly. I can't remember my exact thinking but if I had to guess it was either/or because it was a stand-out color or because Setback (as I understand it) is the Spider-Man analogue of the game and I assumed his costume was red (it is actually yellow and black).

Partially correct. Setback's "power" is that Gambler's Fallacy is true for him, but most of the time, he's just supremely unlucky. This makes him something of a literal setback to his team until his luck pays out and he wins the metaphorical lottery.

so, setback was JU's secret role all along. (I kid, JU for MVP)

Dang it would have been such a good story if claiming Setback with red lettering is what won the game for the town.

I don't know anything about SotM (i thought it was an actual comic book), but I enjoyed the character bio for my role, Chrono-Ranger. It all reads so stereotypical. He's a sheriff of a town name Silver Gulch and his name is Jim. I'm pretty sure I've seen that western on AMC. Until he falls through a hole in time and gets his arm torn off and replaced with a robot arm. I'd watch that movie.

If you guys want to talk more about Sentinels of the Multiverse itself, I made a thread for it. Wonder if I should make a HAF thread for it, too.
