    Meta - Setting: The Bolt(s) Yesterday, there was a massive blue lightning bolt from the sky (ionosphere to be exact), striking the center of Times Square. Electrical systems all over The Square shorted out. There is a glassy spot where that manhole cover is in the center of things. It is...

    🎨 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...

    🎨 Creative [M&M] The Romverse, A Furry Superhero Campaign, RPG.net Edition.

    Okay, for some reason I'm having trouble reaching the Ronin Army forums. Hoping the issue gets resolved within the next few days, but in the meantime, I'll just start a copy of my worldbuilding notes right here on rpg.net. So, this is an intro document to my new Romverse M&M setting, which I'm...

    The lightweight superhero RPG games match

    Fed up with super hero polls with various RPG supehero polls without taking in account their crunch ? Sure, if you mix heavy crunch games with light crunch games, a poll cannot be really a good one. So in this poll, I offer to choose between light crunch superhero games only (because it seems...

    [Supers] "So You All Meet in a Bar"

    When you start a new supers game, how do you get the heroes together? Do you presume they already know one another? Do they all just show up to the same crime? Are they forced together by an authority?

    Will Infinity War cause a surge in interest in Supers Gaming?

    NO SPOILERS Please... Despite packed theaters, not everyone has seen it. My primary genre of gaming is supers. From 2044 on, I have played it. Now interest in supers gaming has come and gone and come and gone and back and forth... and well you get it. In recent times, despite some cool...

    [Supers] How many teams in your world?

    I'm doing some world design for a new Champions campaign and I'm trying to think outside my usual way of setting things up. I had a world that I used for 24 years before taking a hiatus of more than a decade, so I decided to create something new. In your supers game, how many active superteams...

    What elements would make up a perfect X-Men One-Shot? (details inside)

    So, for my birthday party every year, a group of my friends and play a one-shot session of an RPG, pre-made to be able to just jump right in. It usually matches the theme of the party (I'm a birthday-zilla, sue me). Last year's was Star Wars, for example. This year, the theme is X-Men...

     You've put supers in a fantasy setting. What makes the system feel "fantasy?"

    To start: I know this is a hella broad question. But some recent threads (one on new Age of Sigmar Daughters of Khaine models, one on Masters of the Universe) have me thinking. It's fairly easy to stat a She-Ra or He-Man figure and some appropriate baddies for them to fight in a supers system...

    CW DC Superhero Board Games

    I just had a crazy pipe dream of a thought: what if there were a series of board games themed around the CW's DC superhero shows, designed in such a way that each is a distinct, complete game that captures the essence of each show -- so Arrow: The Board Game had mechanics that emulated that...

    How did you start creating your own superhero universe?

    And how did you explain how people became super-powered? Was there an event? A new technology? Aliens? A plague? And how long have Supers been around in your universe? Im working on revamping my own that I used from the 80's and lost my notes sadly. Its a lot of work! But I had using IPs...
