|Failure to Launch: Romantic Misfires
This month we take a look at romance in genre...or more specifically, when romance ruins the story,
plot, movie or simply misfires. Things were going along nicely until romance entered the picture or
never got to first base. Many TV series met their demise because of an ill-advised romantic
entanglement: Cheers, Moonlight are two examples. Some romances never got to be but should've.
Always free! Always fun!

|SFSNNJ Upcoming Themes & Events
|The new Heroes & Rogues campaign is here! aptheo-DOH!-sis
GM Name: Josh Gordon
Campaign Name: aptheo-DOH!-sis
Campaign Type: super hero
Campaign Setting: homebrew
What You Will Need: aberant d20 system, d&d 3.5 players handbook. A mini, meeple, or paper standee,
dice (all available to borrow if needed)
Campaign Description: Superpowers, they happen. No one is entirely sure why, but they do. Every
couple of weeks somebody suddenly discovers they can lift 3 tons and knocks over a bank. Generally
the heavy hitters keep a lid on that kind of stuff, but they are off planet fighting an invasion of amazon
space wizards. So it falls to you all to keep earth safe until the big guys get back.
A five to eight session campaign of superheroic nonsense that will go from super powered street crime
to a show down with the evil mastermind. Players will create their own super team and save the day, or
seize the macguffin for their own aims.
