Excelsior, True-Believers! We're putting on the spandex this episode for superheroic adventures; notably Superbabes: The Femforce RPG published by Selex Inc. and Tri-City Games. Published in 1993, it reflects many of the comic book paradigms of the era as well as a couple of interesting innovations. Take a listen and we'll bring you 4-color adventure as only audio can!
No jugglers were harmed in the making of this episode, not even Kid Jugular.

Looking forward to hearing this. Never played Superbabes, but it gets a lot of flak for being sexist. Which is not entirely without justification. The comic books that the game is based on are very, shall we say, focused on female anatomy. Those comics have also been around since the 80s, so SOMEBODY must be reading them, even though Femforce isn't very well known even among comic book readers. That having been said, I have also read that the Superbabes system is actually solid. Can't wait to get the SFH crew's analysis. There were actually quite a few supplements and adventures for the game, most of which are extremely rare.
In a similar vein, the Champions roleplaying game had a comic miniseries published in the 80s which has since blossomed into an equally long running (as in, still published today) line of comics that has a similar sexual focus. Though the comic long ago split from the gaming company, Heroic Publishing still publishes comics based on the original Champions universe characters that feature lots of T&A and, for lack of a more polite term, "crotch shots". Weird, right?

Not to give spoilers, but we cover both the good and bad. We were all surprised at how rare and expensive it is. Since its going for high prices, SOMEBODY must be wanting the games pretty bad.
...and its still all Liz's fault.
