The Algernon Files – Quite impressed with this superhero universe

Basically, an entire superhero universe/campaign from Black Wyrm games. A nice layout, with groups and independents and gear and even a several page timeline to finish. Illustrated, in colour.

A good hero to villain balance, to boot.
