    New Marvel RPG? [Speculation]

    Fantasy Flight Game has the Marvel license for a card game. FFG, via Asmodee is doing a miniature game. How long before we see a Genesys powered Marvel RPG?

    Hey all, Nautilus-Comics here. So I'm currently in the midst of developing a comic book universe and I wanted to do a different take on the classic "team" archetype and have the team, (the Earthwatch) take on a more disaster relief/ search and rescue sort of role, catering to such things like...

    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...

    Superhero Team Archetypes

    There are a million definitions of superhero archetypes, but after some Googling I couldn't find a list of Team Archetypes in a Supers world. Please chime in and help! The Best - Avengers - Superheroes who have no unifying characteristic other than they're a team. The Origin - Hulk/Red...

    SuperLancer... Musings

    I’ve got some thoughts about hacking Lancer into a superhero game. I’m just going to occasionally vomit some up here because it’s as good a place as any. Design Principle #1: It’s a Game. This is very much a game, and while every attempt should be made to emulate the genre and allow the telling...

    🎨 Creative Interesting Superpowers Limits?

    So this is going to be a fairly specific thread, not about a general idea of Superpowers having limits, but figuring out those limits within the idea I have. So currently my superhero game idea is that the PCs are all basically Homeless and Wayward Teens. They had all been abducted by an...

    [Supers] Freeform games that emulate superheroes but not comics?

    Long title, but that's what I'm looking for. Thanks to Endgame I'm in a Supers mood, but I'm hoping to find a Supers game that is a bit more freeform with what you can do. Like it's open either through it's rules or lack of rules, to interesting uses of powers and such. BUT, and this is a big...

    Fantasy + Supers: an Unexplored Genre

    I've never heard of a story that combines a fantasy setting with the supers genre. I know comic book publishers sometimes publish stories about medieval times, where magic is real and knights wield enchanted equipment, but I mean something different here. I'm also distinguishing this concept...

    Supers RPGs with simple character creation?

    The idea of reviving our old supers campaign bubbled up recently, and I've tentatively filed it in the queue of things to play with my current group. The issue is that there's a fair few newbies in our current lineup, and I want to give them the ability to make the character they want without...

    🎨 Creative 101 heroic acronym organizations, a la '60s spy shows

    A little background: my next campaign will take place in an area called Septagon City. The city is divided into seven districts, each reflecting a different genre of fiction. Within a district people's behavior and the laws of physics work as they would in the corresponding fiction. For example...

    I need your aquatic villains

    Its for a superhero game but it doesnt matter if its a fantasy or space villain. Does anyone have any ocean based bad guys? They dont necessarily have to have super powers; Black Manta is quite deadly with just his tech.
