A minor, tragic superhuman character seen in Flash comics during the 2000s.
This is a tiny profile, but as of September of 2018 we added in-line M&M stats.
Writeups.org is an encyclopaedia of characters in genre fiction — super-hero comic books, video games, action movies, etc. It offers illustrated, researched profiles. These also include technical data for role-players. If you need a robust understanding of a character’s abilities, personality, history, etc. this is *the* place to be.
This is one of the small video game guides we occasionally do as a side effect of research. There’ll be a character entry involving the Oni-Goroshi sword at… some point.
This writeup about procuring a specific item in a specific game (Path of Exile), and the process is a royal pain in the keister. So it’s not a general interest article.
A fleshed out example Player Character from the Grim Dawn video game, using a big shotgun and a fiery circle of power.
Can be useful in quite a few steampunk and/or post-apocalyptic contexts. Or if you need a haircut.

This covers all sorts of fighting shields, from small hardwood stuff to wheeled ballistic SWAT contraptions to force shields.
As of September of 2018, this article was spun off the technical article about shields use. It also received a fair bit of new material, such as ballistic polycarbonate. That was a joke.
You’d rather come back with your shield than on it ? Then you totally need this extensive article about wielding shields in the DC Heroes RPG.
As of September of 2018, this article was revised for style and clarity. It is also getting split into two parts. This part is the rules discussion, the second part is about the shields themselves.

The emblematic and exaggeratedly 3-dimensional Fatal Fury and King of Fighters fighting video games character, who was never developed much.
As of August of 2018, Tom revised this article to improve its coverage.
A technical article about emulating the feel of older editions of AD&D in the DC Heroes RPG.
This is primarily to help us release coherent stats when we cover characters from the worlds of D&D, such as the Baldur’s Gate protagonists. But heh, maybe somebody else will find this stuff useful.
Third chapter in our document about common types of melee weapons. Like the rest, it is a useful illustrated primer that also establishes DC Heroes RPG reference stats.
Added material :
— Baseball bats.
Vibe during the Detroit JLA years, back during the 1980s. These are old, short notes but they’re still useful as a primer and for stats.
As of August of 2018, Pawsplay locked, popped and wrote M&M stats as well.
Michel Vaillant is a venerable series of French graphic novels, about automobile racing and other things that go vroom-vroom.
This profile covers the earliest, 1957-1962 GNs. So it’s full of vintage cars from that time.
A not-unjustly forgotten Daredevil ally from another dimension. Blind martial artist who sees through his pet leopard.
As of August of 2018, this profile was overhauled and received spot-on M&M stats.
A 1946 proto-Marvel time-travelling villain, who fought the All-Winners (the post-War version of the Invaders, more or less).
He’s confirmed to have existed in the Marvel Universe, and seems useful.
