New superhero game at Pandemonium
- Starting on Tuesday, February 13th, I will be running a short,
superhero game using the 5th edition HERO rules. This game is open
to any interested gamer, and is intended to serve as an introduction

for the game to run for at least 4 weeks (possibly quite longer)
every Tuesday at 6:00 at the Dining Room Table of Doom at Pandemonium
Books. I will provide dozens of pre-generated characters, templates,
and examples, and experienced players will have the opportunity to
create their own characters.

The feel of the game is intended to be moderately serious, but
not gritty. No martial artist poodles or Man of Spam, please.
Brightly colored tights are optional...
