Description Edit | History

In 1999, West End Games published their RPG based on the DC Comics characters under license. Whilst proving popular and still has fans on the internet, the collapse of West End Games meant the license was lost and the RPG is no longer published.

From the back cover:

Since you were a kid, you've thrilled to the legendary exploits of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and other famous heroes...

Now it's your turn.

With the DC Universe Roleplaying Game, you can join in the epic struggle of good against evil. Fight alongside the Justice League. Battle against the Joker. Match wits with Lex Luthor. Find yourself involved in battles where the fate of the entire world is at stake!

The DC Universe Roleplaying Game deluxe box set contains everything you need to begin your super-heroic adventuress...

The DC Universe rulebook, which includes:

  • The Hero's Guide, which explains how to create heroes; it also takes you on a brief tour of the DC Universe and describes the basic rules of the game system.
  • The Narrator's Guide, teaches you how to become a Narrator, with optional rules, details on creating new equipment, and introductions to some of the more legendary heroes, villains, and other important people of the DC Universe.
  • A solitaire adventure featuring Robin that demonstrates the game system, and a full-length adventure set in Metropolis that will kick off your super hero exploits.

The Narrator's Screen, full of frequently referenced charts on both sides, with an 80-page Narrator's Book that offers details for creating character backgrounds; tips for designing adventures; new Advantages, Disadvantages, and optional rules; generic people and locations; and a set of adventures located in Gotham City.

Hero Dice engraved with symbols representing Superman, Batman, Darkseid, and the Joker, which help you determine success quickly and easily.

And if that isn't enough, you get a 22" x 34" poster of the painted cover by fan-favorite artist Joe DeVito!

All components, except the poster, are also sold separately.

Fight crime. Crush evil. Live the adventure!
