Special Notes

  • If you have played in Heroes and Villains recently and are a non-citizen character, you may request a secret base! Just send a petition to the dreamworld with a room name suggestion, your resource/minion stats, and the overall theme of the secret base. Unless you tell someone your secret base or I reveal it to them, they are off limits to anyone you don't bring there.

Roles

  • Citizen
  • Those without superpowers or any special skills to fight villains or heroes. Mostly helpless, though some with a bit of pluck and luck can pull through and escape a dicey situation. Though there most important role is being able to provide support to other heroes or villains with their Resource ability. If a criminal, they are your bog standard criminal.

  • Vigilante
  • Those without superpowers who still have decided to fight for good and justice. Though their abilities are in human limits, usually with training they are able to be at the peak of those limits. They may also have access to fabulous wealth to allow them to purchase the finest weaponry.

  • Mastermind
  • You are a criminal mastermind. A mob boss, a gang leader, or a skilled assassin or cat burglar. You have an agenda, people might know what it is, or it might be a secret, but either way you are willing to resort to criminal and evil means to achieve those goals. You might have an organization behind you who does the fighting and dirty work for you, or you might do the work for yourself.

  • Superhero
  • The peak of hero-ness. You may have been born with your powers or you may have gained them in some way, you might not even be human, or look human, but you are a cut above the rest.

  • Supervillain
  • Youre a villain, but with superpowers. You may have been born with your powers or you may have gained them in some way, you might not even be human, or look human, but you are a cut above the rest. You might even have other, lesser super beings under your command. When you act, it is a city wide or even world wide crisis.

  • Intimidation
  • Though Masterminds and SuperVillains are powerful enough to scare the populous, this stat determines their skill at using that fear factor to get their demands met. Often used in hostage situations against the police or against civilians to get them to do something like tell you the passcode to the vault. More complex or onerous commands require better rolls.

    3 Success: See you as a true hero. Will offer assistance that is not obviously suicidal.

RP Guide

  • Dream combat comes in two flavors, usually depending on the intentions of both parties. If you are just dream invading or looking to antag someone whether they are willing or not, just using dreamworld attack (target) (stat) is enough. But if you are looking to craft a story of an epic battle, the roll commands are good guidelines for how the battle progress, but ideally both characters should work together to make the fight epic.

  • The only real rule of Heroes and Villains is Rule of Cool. If someone wants to do something and it sounds cool, as long as they don't completely shit the bed on their roll they should be allowed to do it.

  • Feel free to run your own calendar events, no special permissions required!
