Supercrew RPG Update

Back in January, I reviewed the independently published superhero roleplaying game "Supercrew." Overall, I gave the game a glowing review.

In conclusion, I think that this is an excellent game at a reasonable price. It isn't likely to replace Savage Worlds' Necessary Evil campaign in my game rotation any time soon, but I think I'll be trying to fit it in when some players don't show up for our regular sessions.

But there was one small thing that kept nagging at the back of my consciousness. I really wanted the game to have more online support. In fact, I wanted it to have any online support.

Well...the good folks at Kaleidoskop have updated their website so that it now includes a support site for players of the English language edition of the game. So far the site merely includes some sample pages from the game and character sheets for use in your home campaign, but it's a good start.

I'd still like to see some more support with regard to designing obstacles and villains for the heroes to face or an English language version of their HjÀltegalleri which features a number of characters created using the system would be helpful. While it isn't difficult to figure out what Gravitationskontroll or Noll Friktion are in English, Osynlighetskappa is another matter entirely.
