    Good Superhero RPG for Campaign/Adventure/GM Guidance?

    Tomorrow, I'm going to be running my first comics/supers game in... 20 years? (Spectaculars, for the record) What RPGs have good guidance on running a superhero RPG? I don't care about the system or the setting of the book, I'm just interested in reading notes on theme, structuring an...

    Spectacular Characters!

    I've completed the Core Rules in my Spectaculars WIR, and while I plan on reading through the rest, I also wanted to generate some heroes and villains. I spun up a little Spectaculars generator on perchance.org, and thought I'd start showing off how character (and villain) creation work. Melt...

    [WIR] Spectaculars

    So I recently bought Spectaculars, Rodney Thompson’s new game. The nature of the game makes it impossible to prep, so rather than do that, I thought I’d do a [WIR] thread as I familiarize myself with the rules. What it is. Spectaculars follows in the footsteps of Thompson’s Dusk City Outlaws...

    IC [HomebrewSupers] Zero Day

    All is black. Block letters in white fade into view. ZERO DAY As the letters fade into the night sky and stars dot the blackness, the Z rotates and the cross stroke levels out to form an H. Monday, April 22, 2019, 10:13PM. A shaky smartphone video of a person flying through the sky, doing...

    🎨 Creative Help me populate my Supers world!

    I am running a M&M 3e game and am setting it on an alternate Earth. Similar to ours, it has many of the same countries and US states but I want LOTS of room for creativity. In my game, super powered people have been around for hundreds of years and changed the course of history a bit. I am using...

    Thoughts on superhero games

    I've been looking at a lot of superhero RPGs lately, and I remembered that I tried Supers! Revised Edition for a particular campaign and thought it sucked, then tried it for something else and thought it worked great. I've the same experience with Mutants & Masterminds and several other systems...

    [I'm turning 40 tomorrow, 30/8] Give me: 101 features of a supervillain prison

    So I am turning 40 and I am turning to the wisdom (or collective insane minds) of RPGnet for inspiration for a supervillain (or the occasional framed superhero) prison. The Raft, the Cube, The Kyln, the Phantom Zone...where you lock away people who would escape any normal supermax prison in an...

    [Interest][FASERIP]Guardians of the Galaxy, anyone?

    So, I know this is likely not the Original Characters marvel game people had in mind, but it's the one that struck me and now won't leave. The time is the 31st Century, you are the last hope for not only your Universe, but all of the infinite diversions to have existed! You are welcome but by...

    Superhero Gaming: What is hard about it? How did you fix that?

    Hello RPG.net hivemind! I am considering pitching a superhero campaign to my group when our current D&D campaign finishes. I've run many short superhero games in the past, but I think I have blind-spots and I'd like some help filling them in. What do you see as the primary challenges...

    Meta - Settings: CAPES: NOLA It is a different world down here. Where your average superhero set is all spandex and robots, here it is more about the magic, the monsters, and the hidden (aliens, fairies, mermaids, etc). You are more likely to wear distinctive street clothes than spandex and...

    🎨 Creative My Conversions

    I figured that rather that start new treads every time I get the urge to post some conversions, or even some of my own creations, I do like Kreuzritter and place them all in one spot and just post here when I get some done. So also links to all my old treads...

    MoonHunter Sayeth 20180706

    Meta - Character: Crescendoll Crescendoll was one of those great teen heroes. She managed to shake the "kid hero" tag and was considered a hero. Of course, it helped that she wasn't ever a sidekick and seldom hung out with "the kids". Sweet kid and powerful sonic abilities. Lucky as all get out...

    🎨 Creative Creating Chessmaster characters

    Chessmaster in the TV Tropes sense, that is: characters who are good at plotting and scheming. This is a very general question, and I'll probably look to apply advice on it to both writing and gaming: how do you convincingly create such characters when you are, like me, about as deep as a...

So, this is an intro document to my new Romverse M&M setting, which I'm...
