Dedicated to the definitive superhero non-team.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010


During my dry spells from updating the Defenders Fansite, I spent my free time this past year writing two adventure modules for Villains and Vigilantes, a superhero role-playing game similar to Dungeons and Dragons.

Villains and Vigilantes was popular during the 1980s, and Fantasy Games Unlimited began publishing a new round of materials for the game system in 2010. Of the new products, Enter the Gene Pool and Escape from the Micro-Universe (with its built-in sequel titled Return to the Micro-Universe) are the modules I wrote. As one of my friends noted, writing this blog was probably good preparation for creating those adventures.

Enter the Gene Pool introduces a new group of supervillains, along with some supporting characters with different perspectives on superheroes. The cover pictures the villains of the Gene Pool: Professor Phylum (in back), Invisible Menace, Drifter, Serenade, Roadkill, Persephone, and Sunscar.

The cover of Escape from the Micro-Universe shows three sample heroes shrinking through the subatomic barrier that separates our standard universe from the micro-universe of the game. The adventure pits the heroes against a horde of dangerous foes who threaten Earth.

James Bishop illustrated both adventures.
