#RPGaDAY Day 25: Favorite RPG no one else wants to play

So, a small technical issue: do you mean "nobody in my gaming group," or "nobody I know," because I'm pretty sure Blacksteel and Barking Alien would play Champions with me, even though no one in my gaming group in Kansas would.

So a game I like that few other people do.  I love Cosmic Enforcers, but I think most people don't even know that game.


It's got a fun "Legion of Superheroes" thing with futuristic alien superheroes battling crime and galaxy-threatening alien conquerors.  Rules are sketchy and unbalanced, if that's a problem for you.  I actually corresponded with one of the creators of the game, who basically told me he wouldn't communicate in any manner regarding the game because the publishers had hosed him, which is too bad.

  1. The thing about a game like this is, if I wanted to run it, I would just use Champions or M&M and set it in space. Heck, I'd probably actually run the Legion of Superheroes.

    Still and all, neat idea.

    1. The one time I ran Cosmic Enforcers I ended up switching systems halfway through (to the Marvel SAGA system, of all things)

  2. Until you mentioned the system I would have sworn that was a Rifts Space supplement. Must be the artist.

  3. It does look kinda RIfts-y or Palladium-esque.

    And yes, I'm up for Champions anytime. You're closer than BA but still not all that close. One of these days the online thing is going to come together.

    1. It has the same cover artist, and Myrmidion Press did Rifts sourcebooks (including the crossover Manhunter/Rifts RPG)
