Mystery Men! began as a blog post and I'm now taking it to the next level. A rules lite, comic book hero role-playing game, Mystery Men! is designed to be easy to learn and play, and very easy on the wallet. It will be distributed as a free PDF and as a print-on-demand book sold at no profit to myself. The game is based on the Swords & Wizardry engine by Matthew Finch and based on the original fantasy role-playing game. The final product will include rules, a mini-setting and a short sample adventure. While I'm writing and designing the game, I'm no artist, and that's where this Kickstarter project comes in. Artist Joel Carroll has agreed to provide some art for the game, and since the project is not for profit, I need some help raising funds to pay for the art. Joel will produce illustrations interpreting 7 golden age (and public domain) heroes and 1 golden age villain.
