Favourite Supers RPG

This is a tough one. No, really!

Champions, a.k.a, HERO System will always have a special place in my heart. It was the first supers RPG I ever owned, and I’ve played it (in the form of 5th/5er) more than any other “supers” RPG. It’s the bar against which I measure any other supers RPG (much less any point-based RPG).

Marvel Heroic Roleplaying, however, totally took over my supers needs when it came out. I ran a campaign of Civil War that was not only a blast but also the catalyst for creating my Sunday game group. In a lot of ways, I think it handles the genre better than any other, though it’s certainly a lot more “meta” than good ol’ HERO.

So, let’s call it a tie.

Runner-up would be Villains & Vigilantes, which provide hours and hours of some of the best gaming I had as a wee lad. Plus, fantastic art.

    Foxbat doesn’t show up until Enemies II.]]>
