System: The Doomed (Blades in the Dark reskin)
GM: Declan Feeney
For decades the league have been second rate villains in Epic city, hardly rating a byline in the papers, but last year you hit it big. You were listed in Captain Moonray’s Annual as part of his Rogues Gallery, at the bottom of page six, just under Donny the double-headed squid. Now its time to seize your newfound fame and perform a crime so auspicious it will forever immortalise your league and ensure your place in future rogues galleries.
For two weeks the city are holding a gala to celebrate the Heroes of the city and City Hall has an entire wing dedicated to the ‘Awesome Six’. You’re plan, so audacious it makes you weep, is to sneak in at night and to steal the masks from statues of the ‘Awesome Six’ permanently revealing their secret identities. Whilst there you might even deface the statue of Moonray, or reposition them in the most compromising of poses. Do you have what it takes to make yourselves legends?
The Doomed by Sage Le Torra (co-author of Dungeon World) is a reskin of the Blades in the Dark RPG, and is one of its stretch goals. It takes the game into the worlds of superheroes. You’ll be playing the small-time villains trying to make it big in a world where an alien invasion is just another Tuesday. New characters and crew types give you everything you need to play in the style of The Superior Foes of Spider-Man and the Giffen/DeMatteis Injustice League.
