bookshelves: roleplaying, superheroes
Read from May 28 to June 13, 2012

The system is a lot more narrative focused than most other games I'm familiar with, but I feel like that works well for a game based on comic books. While the rules section is short compared to many other RPGs, I feel that it does a good job covering everything. Although I haven't yet read the Breakout comic (I do plan to do so soon, thanks to reading this), I think it was a good choice for a first scenario. It includes a fair amount of action, some interesting information, and lots of plot hooks the Watcher can expand upon in subsequent adventures. The main weakness is that I feel like a lot of iconic characters are missing from the profiles. I would especially like to have seen some version of Hawkeye, Thor, and Hulk to make running games based on the movie universe easier.
