SUPERHERO 2044 rules: We will be posting videos of play testing soon which will demonstrate the rules of game play.
SUPERHERO 2044 ready-made characters: The vast majority of super hero themed games include some instructions on how to put together a character mathematically and then provides a handful of examples of characters. There have been several supers games which have contracted with the two major publishers and then provided math for their known characters.
Multiple problems arise with licensing deals then lapsing and good games fall into limbo with those games. Plus, and this is a subtle point, those universes were created for comics. The new edition of SUPERHERO 2044 is the first universe crafted for gameplay first and foremost.
This way players can sit down and start playing within 15 minutes. Character growth is measured in transferring the real-life in game stats if you change characters, you can also draw a new costume for your character with art sheets provided or write-up an alternate universe origin for the character you are playing.
The characters to play will also be very very diverse with all races, genders, and types found on normal lie.
SUPERHERO 2044 accoutrements: This game will have a broad set of maps, adventures, ships, weapons available for gameplay. The vast majority of them fully illustrated. Our game will have by far the most individually illustrated aspects of the game in one book. More illustrated vehicles, guns, ships, maps, etc. than any comic book themed game.
- D20 based
- One hundred and thirty-five defined superpowers available to play. More than any other super hero themed role playing game on the market.
