SURPRISE! As fun as it might be to write all the series of Tiger & Bunny, I'll admit the humor of it did kind of wear me down a little and I am excited to get to work again on the Crystal GeMs and their antics in Beach City...now as a Shadowrun game!

...it is bizarre how much more sense the Crystal Gems make in Shadowrun. Between Pearl with Automotive and Aeronautics Mechanic and the fact that they technically ARE fugitive criminals.

So see you next week when the next page showing the Gems return to Beach city comes up. That or come back tomorrow for Simon's GeM Origin.

Something I've noticed across the comics is that you and Deadpansal seem to have a pretty loose definition of "Module." As I understand it, a module is just a single adventure (often part of a series) that comes with just enough setting info to play in, and maybe build off of. But what I'm wondering is, do your comics' modules also come with pregenerated characters for the players to step into? Because I've seen Batman referenced as a module, where Lex took inspiration from him for Sokka and Bonnie once played him. I gotta admit, I want those modules. XD

I invoke rule of plot generally. A module is generally whatever is necessary to fascilitate explaining something away in terms of a game and how they work it. Some come with pre generated characters, others are source books pertaining to specific settings rules or such. Some are straight up contained stories to work from.

I mostly hold that Marvel & DC heroes still exist as comics but never quite made the jump to animated media or movies. Deadpan sal might have another view on it. But that is how I interpret it. As is necessary for rule of plot.

What a relief. I waas in serious ontological danger otherwise. This seems a fine approach. I don't know the difference between systems beyond some generalities so I will work from my memories of Sworn to the Sword thhat I remember reading here.

I think I use Adventure Setting and module interchangably. I don't know why. Some of the modules probably have a canon and sequels and characters, like Drizzt would be. But one of them is definitely Batman.

Welp, you got me good and hooked. I’d totally read an entire run of tiger and bunny screen cap.

And it will be interesting to see what game mechanics you adjust for the switch in systems. I remember trying to transplant a ninja turtles game from 3.5(four ninja class chats does not a balanced party make) to shadowrun. The concept was sound, but we abandoned that game shortly after for other reasons.

Story time! Tell me a story about a game that just didn’t work in the system you made it for.
