Hero Points Ep. 6: Green Ronin's DC Adventures RPG

When this show started, we said it wouldn't just be Mayfair's DC Heroes RPG, that other systems would get covered. So the Lonely Hearts' Furn joins Siskoid to discuss the most recent DCU role-playing game, Green Ronin's DC Adventures, and the two DCAdv campaigns they were in together. Then, Shagg returns to read your feedback for episodes 4 and 5!

Check out the demonic flavor in Etrigan's stats:
One of the most flavorful characters in the books (Heroes and Villains vol.1), Ambush Bug!
A look at the Summon power, chosen because we're a very friendly Aquaman space here.
From our first, aborted campaign: Rip Hunter's blackboard and the hero Tritan.
From our 28th-Century Justice Legion campaign, the Green Lantern Br'k, in the flesh so to speak.
And here are Br'k's stats (modified from DC Adventures, using my DCAdv/DrWho hybrid). He was Furn's character for the length of the run.
Our bad boy player used, among others, the Question, a good example of a character banking on Advantages and Skills rather than powers.

I picked DC heroes as my first RPG back in the eighties based on the weight of the box! It's time I repaired the box now, but we used the character cards to play "Trumps" more often than getting into a decent adventure. The downfall was always the imagination of the GM, I'm afraid.
This Black Ronin set looks sumptuous! Those Ross covers make me feel good all over...

We had a group with the 9-year old son of Zeus, a human-Amazo hybrid who uncontrollably shortchanged into people he touched, the grandson of the original Spy Smasher made into a Duality with a Lobo duplicate, and a guy who'd absorbed the extra energy from Superman's energy body period to become a minor Superman himself. They filled in for the JLofA after being summoned to stop Dr. Polaris from inverting the magnetic poles... By the Construct, who sabotaged Batman 's original JLofA fill-in tape with a team he could manipulate. Before the team disintegrated, they fought French-Canadian Amazo from the Detroit League (and teamed up with the Justice League of Canada), a Luthor-Sponsored fake League who were essentially the movie Avengers, and a Star -Tsar (who was Green Arrow in disguise testing these kids after they lost the PR war with Luthor). I'd love to restart that someday... I had 36 adventures plotted for it in total.

I also did a solo campaign with a martial arts master who was the pupil of Kana, the Shadow Warrior in essentially a riff on Remo Williams.
