Is the facebook under Green Ronin, Mutants and Masterminds, or something else?

Frankly, I am amazed how well GR has done so far with DCA!


That's not what happened with LUG. They wanted to merge with WoTC and when they did, they thought they could sell the LUG Licensed Star Trek game under the banner of WoTC, which they did for a few weeks, until Paramount found out and pulled the licence from LUG stating it was signed for use by LUG and they broke the contract. WoTC was trying a skirt around to gain the Trek licence without paying. Funny thing is, I begged LUG not to due this and warned them it would happen on their forums, they ignored me and they sunk a great game system.

Apparently DC Adventures: Universe is "223 pages of awesome!" I guess joining social media is paying off. :)

Ha! And you're following me!

I didn't post that to the DC page because I didn't want people to think the book was ready to be released. It is, however, going back to DC today for their (hopefully) finally approval!

Man, does that book contain a TON of information!

I'm starting to hate you two for having the inside scoop... While I'm still left waiting days or weeks for the finished product... :shock:

Do we know how much the book will have on the other earths? Earth-1, Earth-2, etc. Will it have details on the worlds or just a brief description?

Just short descriptions for the most part, although a few Earths have a fair amount of information, such as Earth-Eight, Earth-12, and Earth-26. The others range from a paragraph to a few paragraphs and sidebars.

Alright. He says we need to go to Shadowchaser's house and get him drunk so that he tells us his password. Then I send it to my friend along with the $3.00 and he will crack the file for us. Easy-peasy. :)
