When heroes go Hollywood.
So there hasn’t been much news on the game or book front recently, and I apologize for that. As should now be obvious, there was no January Kickstarter. This is because it has been taking longer than I thought to master the intricacies of a second RPG system for the game (as you may remember, my first pick was Cortex Plus). The good news is progress is being made, the major issues have been hammered out, and Wearing the Cape: the Roleplaying Game will still see the light of day in 2016. (The above pic. is piece of art from the background-chapter of the rulebook; brownie points if you can tell me who all of them are.)
And what I suspect is even better news for fans of the books, Wearing the Cape: Crossovers will be out in 2016 as well. The semi-anthology will feature Astra stories interspersed with non-Astra stories, so readers who want to see more of the Post-Event World than is only seen through Astra’s eyes will get a treat. Four of the stories are finished, and as previously mentioned, readers will also get to visit several “extrareality” superhero worlds and meet some amazing heroes in other settings. I hope to have a new edition of the series’ newsletter up soon, with another of the stories from the coming book.
Meanwhile, I thought I’d take this opportunity to throw the blog open for an in-post Q & A; if you have any questions about the current titles, the coming title, the game, or, well, anything, drop a comment here. I’ll fold everything into an Update and Q & A part II.
