Homebrewed Heroes is a group of friends that wanted to play Dungeons and Dragons, but instead of adventurers, they wanted to be superheroes and “homebrewed” their own campaign. Playing together for over 10 years, the group brings together interests around video games, comics, fantasy, science fiction, and anime. The game sessions around this particular story are challenging and entertaining enough that it was decided to turn the sessions into a comic book.
If you would like to read more about this upcoming comic, you can go check out the Kickstarter which has already passed it’s goal by clicking here.
What is C.R.I.T.?
CRIT is a superhero comic based on a Dungeons and Dragons Homebrew game. It is an action/adventure series that centers around a group of friends that have gained superpowers after an accident at work.
As with any tabletop game, the outcomes of the story depend on how the players roll the dice, so each story leaves you in an unpredictable spot.
The series follows the team as they uncover the source of their powers, face challenges, and grapple with choices that test whether or not they can truly call themselves… superheroes.
