From Avatar's posts in the Archived Threads thread, the following games have been played:

Purgatory
Borderlands
Zombie Apocalypse
Empires
Nationstates
Valley of Eden
Dark Hope
Were Tiger's Curse
Vampire: The Requiem

None of those seem to be superhero based. None of the currently running games are superhero based.

I know that there are rules systems for superhero themed games. I've seen several competing sets of rules within the D20 system, even. Plus entirely self-contained rules systems. Marvel and DC comics have both licensed their universes to game companies.

One of the guys in my grad program also works for Green Ronin, the company who puts out the current DC rules. I haven't looked at the system, but the guy says it's pretty good. I did play the Marvel rules by TSR back in the 90s. It was pretty fun, I guess.

I guess it's on you to find someone willing to run it, or take this as an opportunity to stretch your own boundries, and run it yourself.

I'm always down to play a game. My table-top group back in Raleigh was doing a D20 super-hero game for a while. Was good stuff, though we had to go all Dark Knight. I was all angsty and emo, the whole time. But I'm already running one game (with limited success), and I seem to be talking myself into running a second one.

Maybe we should go find someone in the real world (it's real, I know it exists, even if I've never seen it) who can be talked into joining the Watch, just to run the thing.

You're in Houston, you say? No... near Houston. There are many gamers in Houston. There are many gamers on the Watch from Houston.

I think you could probably make that happen in real life. Nan's closed, more's the pity. But I think that Phoenix is still open on 59 and Shepard.

Dang, now I really want to go back for XMas.

looks like Phoenix closed a few years ago. I mostly go to Bedrock Comics and Third Planet comics.

and I do lots of comic book shopping at Half Price Books and Hastings.

Phoenix closed a while back. The Magick Cauldron moved into their space. Nan's was open last I saw.

I'm one of those from Houston, sgt.null.

Angleton? Oh wow. Small world. I grew up in Lake Jackson.

Phoenix was on Montrose and Fairview, about a block from Westheimer. Nan's is at 59 and Shepard, not all that far from 3rd Planet. GK knew the locations, but he's mixing up his store names.

Yeah, I was talking about Nan's, not Phoenix. Phoenix closed before I left Houston, which was like... 7 years ago, now. I should know better. It was just so much a better place for gamers. They had little game rooms in the back, and gamers who worked there... not just comic book people or collectible crazies.

And I'm sorry to hear you're with a Julie. That's a very unfortunate name. It does not bode well for you. But perhaps you will have more luck than I did.

I used to work in Meyerland, in the Aramco building. Good times.

No PM, though. My Houston info is all historical, so it's not so urgent that I guard it. Went to UH, lived in the dorms. Then moved to Montrose. I needed to be surrounded by queens and bohemians. It was heaven, though the weather was a bit more like Hell.

Maybe the three of us (plus spouses if they can stand it) should do lunch some time around Meyerland. I don't see Seven often enough as it is.

Montrose is great. wonderful antique stores. have picked up a few things for my artwork.

mainly we go to Spring (julie's mom) and to Cactus records (off Portsmouth) and the museums district (love the Modern and Station most of all) and near the art car museum. (near the Addickes studio) Munger (Orange Show) and whatever Bedrock we are closest to.

a meet and greet is viable. Julie and I share Saturday's off.

Dude. I'm really tripping over that name of Julie.

Can we call her Bruce?
