IC: Superheroes meet fantasy with Palladium rules.


Well, call me crazy but since superheroes have no bounds (they can travel on time or move from one dimension to another), I have thought about a campaign in which some superheroes are dragged from real world to a fantasy world and they have to overcome all kind of threats they have never faced before thus making a fusion of my two favorite genres.

The system would be Heroes Unlimited (I have a modest experience GMing this system). I am not offering a long term campaign but first testing the waters running "The Arms of Nagash-Tor" the first published fantasy module by Palladium Books. Insted using fantasy characters we would be using superheroes.

I don't know whether HU and PF have exact compatibility but to the best of my knowledge most Palladium books do have it. Whatever the case this would be an experiment and after the conclusion of the module the campaign could go further and extend using other PF materials.

Let me know your thoughts.

Heroes Unlimited is absolutely drag-and-drop compatible with PF. Since they're both SDC worlds, no conversion is required.

I think that this could work out well, especially if the player lean in to the cultural differences (such as not looting corpses and insisting on a proper burial for their foes), and having the NPCs finding the characters' "magic" to be different and possibly dangerous.

Not strictly what I had in mind but still I started a Heroes Unlimited game.
