Episode 16 - It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's a One-Off Adventure!

Greetings once again!

Fellow citizens, a listener pointed out something important to us recently: we talk about Rifts a lot. But what about the other games within the Megaverse? Well, to that I say, look, up there in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No! It's Heroes Unlimited!



Heroes is probably one of the first systems most Palladium gamers learned, and it's still one of the most popular—and for good reason. And with the current environment regarding superheroes at box offices everywhere, the system has the potential to take itself to new heights!

But naturally, we can't shut ourselves up there. Another question we wanted to answer in this episode is what to do about one-off adventures; that is, for those of you just coming into the RPG world, an adventure you run in a single session. A lot of people have trouble thinking of a "small campaign" to create, because they think they're wasting a good storytelling opportunity. Well, Nathan will set you straight this week. He's run a lot of one-off adventures, and knows what he's talking about. If you're keen to learn how to make the most out of your superpowers, how to run better one-offs or to combine the two and make the most out of your superpowered one-offs, have a listen!

Carry on, citizens.
