Description Edit | History

From the front cover:
"Superhero Role-Playing Revised Rules by Jeff Dee and Jack Herman"

Select info from the back cover:
"You can combat the forces of evil!
...find their hidden enclaves with your super-senses...
...and bust your way in with powerful fists!!
Use your incredible agility or invulnerability to ward off their attacks as you blast away with energy bolts, or confront them with your martial arts or weapon skills!
Drag them squirming and cursing to prison, to be brought to justice!
Become a champion of truth and an idol of millions!"

More Information Edit | History

Early printings of the Second/Revised edition of V&V had a number of errors that were fixed in later printings of the rulebook. Here are those errors:

Dedication (p 1):
Misspells "Those" as "Thos" in the last sentence.
Does not include "Bill Strickland/Shadow" at bottom of the right column of the Protectors.

2.5 Super Powers / Powers table (p 4): Misspells "Teleportation" as "Teleporfation".

2.5 Super Powers / Magic/Psionic Items table table (p 4): Missing "49-50 Light Control"

2.6D Carrying Capacity (p 7): Carrying capacity formula is wrong: "[(S x S x S + E) x W] /20 = Carrying Capacity"

2.6E Basic Hand to Hand Damage (p 8): Missing text: "… Carrying Capacity. Consult the table below to find the character's …"

2.6G Power (p 8): Incorrectly refers to section 2.5 instead of 2.7.

2.7 Super Power Descriptions (p 8):
6th paragraph incorrectly says "310d" instead of "3d10."
8th paragraph has a repeated line beginning with "way of boosting," and that line also contains an incorrect apostrophe ' instead of a colon : after "ability."

2.7 Absorption (p 8): 2nd paragraph is missing, "… character takes no damage from the attack. If …"

2.7 Dimensional Travel: Die roll table last line is missing the asterisk after "Wrong World!"

2.7 Emotion Control:
1st paragraph has Range in inches listed as I (Intelligence) instead of 1 (one).
1st paragraph says "victim make a successful saving throw" instead of "victim makes a successful saving throw".

2.7 Heightened Senses (p 13): Last paragraph says "It is impossible to gain …" instead of "It is possible to gain …"

2.7 Ice Powers (p 13):
1st paragraph says, "An additional point of damage is taken by the victim …" instead of "An additional point of damage per cubic foot of ice is taken by the victim …"
1st paragraph contains bolded words "after" and "maintained."
1st paragraph ends with, "unless maintained by the attacker (see below)." instead of "unless maintained."

2.7 Invisibility (p 14): 2nd paragraph is missing the following sentence: "At the start of each subsequent turn, he will gain an additional +1 to hit and -1 to be hit."

2.7 Invulnerability (p 14): 1st paragraph misspells "ignore" as "ignor".

8.3 Structural Points (p 45):
Table: Diamond has SR 14 (instead of SR 18), Adamantium has SR 15 (instead of SR 30).
Last paragraph: Does not include the sentence "Structural damage scores inflicted on the same phase are cumulative."

8.5 Animals (p 45): Missing Animal Training sub-section consisting of three paragraphs. The Empress illustration on that page is therefore much larger.
