These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Freedom City Play By Post
Alt-itis: Averted. Players are limited to running 2 active characters at once, and commitment, while not mandatory, is encouraged. There is a rigorous auditing process for new characters, and players who stick with their characters over the long haul earn rewards (including, if they choose, more character slots).
Avenger has canonically become one of the scariest badasses in the setting. He makes more criminals wet their pants before 12AM than most vigilantes do all night. It helps that he's the most powerful vampire in the setting.
"She used the Mask on the Freedom League. That was back on January 2 of last year. She turned them all, using some to turn the others as she made them all her children in darkness. And then..." He closed his eyes, and the screams of thousands seemed to echo in the air. "And then blood ran in the streets. And after that, things were different."
Wander represents some overlap between an Iron Woobie and a Stoic Woobie. (And she's from the same player as Fleur.)
Dead Head, surprisingly, averts this trope. He is functionally unkillable, and trapped for all eternity in a body full of inert organs which exists in a constant state of putrefaction. And he gets no end of crap for it from the other PCs. One would assume that his steady stream of Gallows Humor is the only thing keeping him from screaming. But Word of God states that that's how he was, back when he first rose, and was active as a GRIMDARK avenger bringing unholy terror to criminal scum, using his frustration and angst to fuel his raging crusade. Over the years, he's come to accept his "condition," adopting a "just go with it" attitude. He's not "always laughing because otherwise he'd never stop crying," he's always laughing because "you livin' people are so utterly ridiculous!" He's like a member of The Addams Family: compassionate and loving, friendly to all he meets, eager to help strangers in times of need, tolerant to a fault...and largely incapable of noticing how creepy and wrong he comes off, or just how badly his "idle fun" (like snapping off a hand and having it crawl around like a spider) unnerves some people.
Most of the characters who suffered Death by Origin Story (see above) probably qualify for some variation of this trope.
Though there is no alignment system per se in place, some characters do fall roughly into certain categories. Of course, labels such as these are more descriptive than proscriptive, especially given the complex nature of some of the characters.
Lawful Good: Equinox. Freedom Angel. Solar Sentinel. Solvrytter
Neutral Good: Dead Head. Doktor Archeville except when he's not. Fulcrum. Geckoman (unless he crosses into Chaotic Good). Midnight. Graft.
