In honor of my westward road trip (where I’ll be running a Prowlers & Paragons: Ultimate Edition* game for the original Hero Games guys – George “The Golden Swordsman” MacDonald, Steve “Goliath” Peterson, Ray “Dove” Greer, and Bruce “Marksman” Harlick – I am declaring this Super New Week, and we’ll take a look at the latest and coolest superhero products out there.
We’ll open up with this latest take on using Old School Rules (of the D&D variety to play superheroes who level up – Superheroes Extended.
(*) – Kickstarter March 19, 2019
Thrills! Spills! Action! Adventure! Superheroic action using Light rules! Who wants to read through reams of text just to get to the action? No-one right? These rules assume you know how to role play. They assume you know about superheroes – especially those of the Golden Age. They assume you know how OSR products work. There, it’s done. You know how to play already. Just get on with it. Biff! Smash! Bam! Kapow!
Superheroes Extended takes characters to 6th level.
If you want a lighter (and for a lower price) version of this game, check out Light Superheroes, which takes characters to 3rd level and has fewer options for quicker character creation.
