I may have mentioned my super-hero RPG a few times on here. It’s been running for almost 30 years, which by my calculation makes it probably the third-longest surviving superhero universe in the world, and with over 1000 weekly gaming sessions it’s had more “issues” than any super-hero comic other than Superman and Batman (ok, maybe the X-Men too… it’s hard to calculate how many X-books have been published )
Anyway, on-and-off over the years I’ve tried assembling the game narrative into some form of fiction that might appeal to other people. I’ve just launched my latest attempt:
My plan is to write two separate on-going stories, “Strikeforce”, which is the story that started it all 30 years ago, and “Heroes”, which is the post-“crisis” reboot of the story. Strikeforce is a normal prose story, and just for variety Heroes is written as a comic script. Because, well, why not?
But that’s not all! No comics universe is complete without an “official handbook”, so I’m writing one of those too. And a history book. And, eventually, maps and maybe pictures! (Pictures might have to wait until I can afford to pay an artist…)
So, yes, that’s it really. If you feel like having a read, it’s all here: http://www.dmheroes.co.uk/index.html . Well, when I say “all” I mean, not very much at the moment as I’m only just launching the site. But I’m going to aim for weekly updates, and I’ve got lots of material stockpiled so I’m pretty sure I can stick to it.
