DM Screen

Hi fans! Dan here. Thanks to the support of our Patrons, I’ll now be releasing my GM notes for Extraordinary League to the world at large.

My notes as they currently exist are very idiosyncratic and use a lot of shorthand—I wrote them under the assumption that I would be the only person to see them, so they’re not exactly friendly to outside readers. What you’ll see here has been cleaned up so that they’re understandable by people who aren’t me. Each installment also includes some commentary for each session, talking about what my thoughts were in designing specific sessions, and how things might have gone unexpectedly during the actual episode.

First, though, is a very surface-level overview of the heavily-modified version of the Marvel Superheroes RPG that we use for League. That way, some of the stat blocks and rules references in my notes should hopefully make a little more sense, plus you might start understanding why the League players are happy when they get a “red” result on an attack roll.

After that are the episode summaries themselves. These notes are annotated with my own thoughts and clarifications from the present. I’ll use this as an opportunity to explain why I made certain decisions, or how the players’ decisions in-game changed certain directions of the story. Any annotations I make will be bold and italicized, like this text here. Actual flavor text I intended to read aloud to my players will be just italicized, like this text here.

And yes, this series is called “DM Screen,” because my initials are too good not to abuse.

I welcome any feedback or questions you may have regarding League, the storyline, or how I run it. Thanks for visiting!
