The League of Awesome Dudes

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

The Hex crew used to regularly run a game called “The League of Awesome Dudes” (actually, it was originally “The League of Kick-Ass Dudes,” but we decided “Awesome” was more appropriate to the setting). The basic premise was “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but with 80s heroes.” Since it’s not really something we can publish, here are a couple of tables for running your own game. Roll once for each player (re-rolling duplicates) on the first table to determine the characters, then roll on the second table for the bad guy.
