    Do you actively run Supers RPGs at your table

    This is a very common response to nearly every veteran player/GM I know where I've asked that question. My own players were like this in every group I've ever run. Supers, imo, is a little different in terms of prep for a GM than other genres not just because of power-level but because the...

    New Marvel RPG coming in 2022

    I'm not getting into politics. Marvel got into politics. And their IP is infected by it. I'm merely pointing out the glaringly obvious. And whose responsibility is it to make these decisions? It's not the vendors. It's not the buyers. It's not rocket science. Comicbook companies that don't...

    New Marvel RPG coming in 2022

    I said they did BOTH. I didn't say they were summed up as one led to the other. Though they are related. Marvel destroyed brick and mortar bookstores with ridiculous business practices - like forcing bookstores to take their new woke comics as part of their orders with no option to buy them...

    New Marvel RPG coming in 2022

    I didn't say any system had to be anything. I merely pointed out that D&D 5e is middling in design. That's all. I didn't impugn anyone personally. It's appeal has more to do with its brand than its design, and justly so, it's earned it. I compared D&D to a "supers" system as an example of...

    New Marvel RPG coming in 2022

    My comments on 5e are in direct relation to everything else available other than 5e. 5e exists as a direct design against one thing: D&D itself. Everything else that exists pretty much is trying to distinguish itself by mechanically doing things differently than D&D with 50+ years of...

    Do you actively run Supers RPGs at your table

    I mean "Supers" being the genre of Superheroes. It's not just scale since Daredevil and Blue Beetle are normal people. It's pretty specific to "comicbook genre" concepts of America and Japan (sure why not?). So sure, Exalted is supers-Fantasy, but it's not Superheroes. Capes are optional!

    Do you actively run Supers RPGs at your table

    The purpose is straightforward: I just wanna see how many people actually player Supers games actively, as well as collect anecdotes of whatever they played in the past. Second, if people have an "Other" I'd like to know about it - because it's always interesting to know what other games in the...

    Do you actively run Supers RPGs at your table

    Well give it a shot!! Supers can be a little tricky until you get the hang of it - but players tend to love it, since they start out ridiculously more powerful than in other genres, typically.

    I think you're painting a caricature of me. I'm not stuck in the past on anything. I'm stuck on GOOD. I don't hang on the nuts of any system or edition that doesn't do what I want it do with fidelity to my needs. You don't see me talking much about Savage Worlds Necessary Evil. Great concept...

    PvP games

    Oh lord. Well I kinda feel you guys are talking about games I don't really play, so I don't want to step on toes. If your'e talking about RPG's in general and not the specific Fiasco-kind, yeah I have tons of PvP stories. My games tend to be highly social and political and it often happens...

    Do you actively run Supers RPGs at your table

    So from the Marvel 2022 thread, I thought I'd toss this up here out of interest. I would have put more options, but I was limited. So my criteria is simple: Do you run Super's RPG's as part of your normal campaigns. So at least a few times a year? If you choose Other - feel free to post it in...

    New Marvel RPG coming in 2022

    I'm speaking to the only known instances of Marvel producing an RPG. I don't really care when it happened. That's why I said all canons require curation. It's inevitable with 80+ years of American comic tradition. I'm not sure what your point is, unless you're implying "it's all relative" and...

    New Marvel RPG coming in 2022

    Only if you believe a licensed half-ass supported RPG is more desirable than a system with no ulterior agendas attached to them other than to make them as possibly good as they can be. Edit: and if you're reading this Matt, by all means call me. I'll consult with ya.

    He Said She Said

    This is the problem of all great revelations: their significance so often exceeds the frame of our comprehension. We understand only after, always after. Not simply when it is too late, but precisely because it is too late. - R. Scott Bakker

    PvP games

    All my games can be PvP at anytime. Is there a specific draw to these games? Or do people forbid PvP in their RPGs normally?

    New Marvel RPG coming in 2022

    Movie-goers>Comic buyers>Supers RPG players by population. And each probably by orders of magnitude. Phase 4 of Marvel remains to be seen in terms of buy-in. They've earned a LOT of credit, but slipped towards the end. I think they have credit to burn in Phase 4. Comic buyers? It's been on...
