Hero Points is back! (How do you feel about an annual engagement on the Let's Roll feed?) Shag and Siskoid are in fact doing a Hero Points/JLI Bwa-Ha-Ha Podcast crossover by covering When a Stranger Calls, an adventure module set sometime before JLI #12. Can Dr. Fate and the rest of the team put a stop to Wotan's newest scheme?

I agree that using riddles in game sessions can be really hit-or-miss. What I have seen used more effectively are puzzles, particularly ones that can be physically manipulated by the players. The clue keeper and Batman’s mind maze are steps in that direction. A GM who I’ve seen use some cool puzzles in her D&D games is Deborah Ann Woll, of Netflix Daredevil fame (e.g., her Relics and Rarities series at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7atuZxmT954B-AtfJsw_YbULHL_L7J8z). Of course, building puzzles is a time commitment, and may not be every table’s cup of tea.
Thank you for another amazing episode. I look forward to next year’s JLI episode.
Anyone who’s listened to the MegaDumbCast’s coverage of the Marvel “Time Warp” Trilogy knows how railroady Ray Winninger can be sometimes- but I have to give him credit for his power innovations that made it into Second Edition.
I like to think that if this module is canon, then “Nice Guy” is the one refereeing the Basketball game. He was a P.E. teacher, after all.
I’d love for you guys to check out the much superior “World in the Balance” module (especially since it draws from a lot of juicy Justice League continuity and involves both teams), but because it barely falls outside the Bwa Ha Ha Era, I’ll just say you guys’ll love it.
Every DCH product is eligible for an episode at some point, but as far as the Bwah-ha-ha tie-ins go, Come On Down! is the only one left.
