Justice City Superpowered
by Sean H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/22/2012 16:04:15
Justice City is a setting for a superheroic world with recent emergent superheroes. It provides a useful, if general, backdrop for a campaign or just for a place to visit.

Justice City: A Superhero Setting Book and Campaign Installment is a 32-page PDF (27-pages if you remove the cover, OGL pages and ad) for the Mutants & Masterminds (3rd Edition) RPG written by Ethan Parker and published by Gamer’s Haven Publishing. This is part of the Gamer’s Haven Superpowered Superhero Roleplaying line.

Justice City has mostly a traditional two columns layout and is easily readable, except for some occasions where the two columns almost overlap. The art is full color photos and maps of Vancouver/Justice City. A collection of short stats blocks for the characters mentioned is included at the end.

Justice City is Vancouver, BC, after superheroes emerged into the world (very recently) and the city was renamed in their honor, as was briefly popular to do so in this setting. It is essentially a guide to the city and its areas with a pair of interesting non-player characters for each one (all of whom are given short stat blocks at the end). While a few companies and criminal groups are mentioned in character descriptions, neither are elaborated in the main text.

While it is a useful reference to Justice City/Vancouver, it could have been made much more useful by having some corporation, criminal syndicates and adventure seeds. A much more minor problem is that a few of the stat blocks are unfinished, with statuses unfilled and specialties unnoted.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
