    I would love to have the posters! Also I love the little segment of MCR. You are going all out with the little touches.

      Oh yeah, this is a new podcast for sure. Can’t wait for the story to begin!

    Another fantastic episode! And yes please, do posters of the characters.

    Thoroughly enjoying this off season of Critical Hit with the FATE system! The intro bit with MCR is an awesome idea, and I hope to hear more like it! Who is providing the voice acting for these parts? Are they Major Spoilers fan-contributed?

      I know the MPR Announcer voice is Brian Ibbott from Coverville, but I could not ID any of the other voices. I also liked Scott Johnson doing his old timey voice on the last episode.

    I love all of these character concepts! I would for certain buy the cover art from your cross-over issues. The clever titles and stunning imagery would look great framed next to my comic collection and table-top rpg books!

    I thought THUNDERHEAD was a little too on-the-nose and had this one pop in my head:

    Dr. Jeremy Cumulo was an atmospheric physicist working on a device to control the weather, providing rain in times of drought. One night while working on the device, the weather channel was interrupted by breaking news on the Thunder City Bison/Glory/Douche-keteers. Infuriated by society’s over-importance on sports over world issues, he accidentally activated the weather machine. It morphs his body in to a storm cloud and the doctor becomes the villain NIMBUS.

    He can then come back stronger at a later time as SUPERCELL.

    I’ve really liked the Modern City stuff so far, and I can’t wait to hear the actual gameplay interactions between these characters. I thought you guys did a decent job with your characters in the 5e canned adventure, but this is so much more fun.

    Loved the radio report at the beginning. This is shaping up to be so much fun!

      Thanks. I know I’m having a blast with this game/story/system!

    Again, really enjoying these Modern City explorations. Also, find the newsreels, newspapers, etc to a really fun, cool touch!

      I approach this as all part of the world building, and if it gets everyone else as excited as I am, then that is a bonus!

    The Modern City segments have been incredible. I know you all do not have the time to make this a regular story, but If the main 4e game ever permanently wraps up I personally would love to see you guys return to this world.

      Thanks for the kind words Matthew.

      You are correct, we currently do not have time or resources to do another RPG podcast, but when we hit our VIP target goal at http://members.majorspoilers.com, this will be the next game podcast we produce for everyone.

      If 1/10th of our Critical Hit listeners signed up right now, we’d be in production of this new show before you know it ;)

      Thanks again for your comments! We hope we can bring this game to you very soon!

        Is there any way VIP’s are able to see your Modern City FATE character sheets?

        • March 17, 2015 at 1:42 pm — Reply

          Yes. When we actually get into the game play we’ll share the character sheets.

    Loving the world building you guys are doing, can’t wait to see how this all actually plays! I hope we can see this spun off to a new show, CH is worth my membership alone but I think MC would attract new members who maybe aren’t about the sword&sorcery.

    Would be V interested in a T-shirt of the MC heroes!

    If there were posters available I would very seriously consider buying four of them, one for each wall in my bedroom. That way I would be protected from all cardinal directions. Seriously though if there are multiple posters(the team ups!! wow!!) and also shirts I’ll be a happy, stylish camper.

    Hi Guys,

    I absolutely love and i mean love your current Fate game. I have been listening on and off to your D&D podcasts for about a year now from sunny old England. The production / radio clips have been inspired!

    Also keep up the good work on your 4th edition campaign(s). Love the story and respect that 4th is the system for you.

    Harry.

    Really digging this segment. I enjoy world-building as a DM, and these first few segments have been a cool exercise in collaborative design. Excited to hear more.

    My favorite part of listening is how much fun you guys are having together.
