Description
Solo Uber is a collection of games/minicampaigns. Each game will typically have a one GM and one player (although, at the GMs option, the number of players can be expanded at any point).
 
Background
Before there were the uberteams, there were solo ubers. These superhuman heroes have long safeguarded cities, towns, and outlying regions. In populous areas, usually the hero is one among many, but still one who makes a big difference. In outlying areas, the hero is the only one to stand against big threats to the safety and peace of the people.

This campaign group is unique in that the character, rather than the place or theme, is central. Members of this campaign group will each create a character, along with a few plot items, and state their willingness to GM another player's character. Subsequently, each player-GM will list three or more of the characters which he or she would like to GM. The Coordinator of Solo Uber will then match up player characters and player-GM. At that point, each campaign of Solo Uber will start play.

If a new player desires to join the group, the Coordinator will handle the task of polling the player-GMs regarding a switch that would allow the addition. Alternatively, if more than one new players puts in a request to join Solo Uber, the Coordinator can allocate new player characters to new player-GMs to GM.

If both player and GM of a Solo Uber campaign agrees to add in one or more other players to that campaign, they will post a call for players and they will both select the candidate who needs not necessarily be a GM in Solo Uber. Ideally, the subsequent character(s) in the campaign should either be thematically similar to the original player character or should make a good match with him/her.
