I recently re-watched seasons one and two of The Boys. The misanthropic, cynical part of me enjoys the connections drawn between superheroes and celebrity obsession. The banality surrounding individuals that really don’t deserve such a cultural apotheosis, and the relentless façades used to hide all too human failings whilst simultaneously doing anything, no matter how…
I roll up some characters and work out a set up, including their reasons for adventuring, the area they end up in, and a quickly scribbled encounter table.
Then I run them through an introductory scene, where I find out combat is quite deadly.
An explaination as to why I am so excited about the Worlds Without Number kickstarter, and my plans to start a Latter Earth solo campaign.
