    Hero Points: The Live Role-Playing Session

    Hero Points: The Live Role-Playing Session

    You asked for it! One of the Fire and Water Podcast Network's Patreon stretch goals was for us to finally pull the trigger on a live (well, live-to-tape) DC Heroes role-playing session with Network hosts and guests taking the roles of superheroes they are associated with. A long time in the making (and even longer in the asking), GameMaster Siskoid sits across from the virtual gaming table from players Shagg, Chris Franklin, Bass and David Gallaher and runs the Bwa-ha-ha JLI introductory adventure from the 2nd edition boxed set, "Exposed"! But who's playing who? For that, you have to listen!

    Hero Points Character Profile: Batman

    Siskoid sits down with KnightCast's Chris Franklin to compare Batman's DC Heroes RPG stats and his portrayal in the comics. A flagship character like that, surely Mayfair Games got it right! We ask an expert to make sure!

    The Hero Points Podcast: Dream Machine

    The Hero Points Podcast: Dream Machine

    GameMasters Siskoid and David Gallaher discuss the 1986 DC Heroes adventure module Dream Machine, by Mark Acres, starring the one and only Joker. Can the New Teen Titans or Your Own Heroes defeat him and their worst nightmares? It's an unusual adventure we think can be adapted for a variety of games. Check it out. (The Hero Points Podcast is in no way affiliated with the upcoming Joker movie, but we're opportunists.)

    Hero Points Character Profiles: The Power of Fishnets

    Siskoid sits down with The Power of Fishnets' Ryan Daly to compare Black Canary and Zatanna's DC Heroes RPG stats and their portrayal in the comics. Two very different characters, except in terms of fashion. Did Mayfair Games get them right? We ask an expert!

Come out and play!

You might think a podcast about the DC role playing game from the '80s is a pretty nerdy endeavor. You're not wrong. After listening to an episode, I do feel like I missed out on this phenomenon. The hosts obviously have passion for the game, and the sourcebooks sound like great resources for DC at the time. I would play! Let your Freak Flags fly!

A Column Shift of Lively Discussion!

Even if you never rolled a 20-sided dice, you can enjoy this podcast, where hosts Shag and Siskoid take you through the various releases in the classic DC Roleplaying game. From the original box set to the source books and beyond, if it was part of the game, it will be covered here, with the usual twinkle in the eye you expect from the Fire and Water Podcast crew!

Great show for RPG

It is worth the listen when it finally comes out.
