You and your friends are sitting around talking about comic books, ’cause that’s what we do, after all…

You’ve just finished reading Harbinger #21 and are wondering about Peter Stanchek’s powers. The key phrase that you’re excitedly debating is from Peter: “You know … it affects me pretty hard. Every time I scan someone. The homeless I wipe to keep rumors of your apparitions from spreading. All those Foundation members during Harada’s mind squall. Ax earlier today…”

One of you says, “Y’know, if I was Peter I’d simply anchor an invisibility shield to Monica Jim. Every time she leaves the Renegades’ underground lair, Peter’s psionic energy spikes on. That keeps Monica Jim hidden while alerting Peter to potential trouble while she’s out. But this also gives her some leash so the kid doesn’t go stir crazy.”

Another one of you says, “Nah, nothing in any of the comics says Peter can anchor his powers, much less have them kick off subconsciously like that. That’s going too far.”

And another friend pipes up and says, “Yeah, I agree. Not to mention that doesn’t solve Peter’s problem of the psychic weight he’s carrying. If I was Peter, I would’ve figured out how Harada’s mind squall worked while it was scrambling all that brain juice. The comics have shown how fast he adapts, after all. Then, when he’s scanning and erasing memories, he generates, well, let’s call it a ‘mind bubble.’ A subtle pressure of memories spread into a wide area—a pressure valve relief sorta thing. Kicks off déjà vu for anyone in a certain radius. But no one’s really hurt, no alarms sound, and Peter’s not getting crushed because he’s carrying the weight of everything.”

A chorus of “Oh … that’s good” flows around the room. Except for the original guy, who mutters, “I still like my idea better.”

Who hasn’t enjoyed those thought experiments as we’ve all put our imaginations to work in great debates to answer the questions that come out of reading the best comics? Well, that’s exactly what Valiant Universe: The Roleplaying Gamelets you do.

This is your chance to step in, suit up, and answer those questions for yourself! How would you do it?

This comic provides another great example of how to roleplaying with your friends in the Valiant Universe.

StoryvilleStoryville #1

Set in the Storyville district of 1910 New Orleans which was the home for the “Devil’s Blues” which later became known as jazz. The legalized red light district ran for 25 years and virtually everything was permitted – from sex to booze, from gambling to drugs.   The only thing that was not acceptable was murder, because murder was bad for business.  When prostitutes and their customers start being killed, Detective Brian Donahue, a transplant from Chicago, finds he has no answer to these seemingly random murders.  Pressured by the local ‘political machine’ Donahue enlists the aid of Dr. Eric Trevor, a psychiatrist at the nearby Saint James Infirmary, a hospital for the mentally ill.

It is hoped that Dr. Trevor will provide the answers these seemingly random and vicious crimes. And the two of them embark to unravel the mystery of this new type of killer seldom seen before…a serial killer.

From the mind of Gary Reed, writer of the critically acclaimed Renfield and Saint Germaine.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars (from Thomas Brownell)

Review
Six Points: 1) I love that the author didn’t think “gritty” meant “you can’t push your limits”, instead applying a potentially brutal cost to it.
