New Project Announcement - Forest City

Now the that Blogging From A-Z April Challenge is done, I can get started on my new project. I want to start by saying that this project was inspired by Linneman's Dogwood City posts over at Monstrous Matters.

I'm going to start working on my first pdf rpg release. I'm going to create a city setting for Mutants and Masterminds using the Super-Powered by M&M Trademark Licence. I think I have some really good ideas. Unfortunately I'm awful when it comes to creating art, so like some others publishing supers stuff, I'm going to use public domain supers to build my setting. Because the greatest collection of public domain supers material is in the golden age, my initial release will be during that era. That being said, I'm going to do my best to be more inclusive and include some modern sensibilities in my versions of the characters. As long as I can keep the momentum going I'm going to move forward in the timeline with future supplements.

My primary resources are:

Public Domain Super Heroes
Comic Book +
The Digital Comic Museum

This blog started out as a Mutants and Masterminds blog, so it's fitting that my first "published' material be for that game. This is a big project and it's going to take a while. My gaming group is giving me good feedback and +David Coppoletti has offered his services to me, so it's going to be good once it's finished.

Expect regular or semi-regular updates.


  1. This is awesome! Best of luck; I can't wait to see where this goes (and start working Forest City into the geography of the Dogwood City universe). Also, that croc-man panel is killer. (What's that from?)

    1. Forest City is my fictionalised version of Cleveland. My next post about it will go into more detail about why I made the decisions I did.

      Croco-Man can be found here:

    2. Haha! He actually does go by Croco-Man! And very cool on Forest City. (There's definitely a specific real-world city I have in mind for Dogwood City, as well.) I'm seriously looking forward to seeing how you build this thing!
