Alternate History in Superhero Games at Gencon 2012

November 10, 2012

Progenitor is a great setting for Wild TalentsNews: Check out the new RPPR Kickstarter for Base Raiders, a standalone RPG about superpowered dungeon crawling!

Synopsis: This seminar with Dennis Detwiller, Kenneth Hite, Shane Ivey and Greg Stolze is about historical superhero games. Arc Dream has two games along those lines: Godlike and the Progenitor setting for Wild Talents, so they have some background in the topic. If you’ve ever wanted to run an alternate history game, even without superheroes, this panel would be a must listen!
