Technohol 13: Marvel Super Heroes RPG (Classic & Saga) Material

While life has been a bit hectic, and I haven't been keeping up with this 'news' page as much as I'd like of late, I have nonetheless been moving along with various things that need doing here at the 13. I once again share the usual apologies for not being punctual with current events, but at the very least, I've been doing something for your gaming delights, right? Right?!
For one thing, I've finally sorted out the Super-Axis. Baron Blood and Lady Lotus are now updated and streamlined, and this took some doing. The former, for instance, has had a lot of stuff going on in her life, while the latter had extensive powers that needed overhauling. But these fascist fiends are now ready for use in your game, whether in the past or, as it turns out, in the modern day!
Furthermore, I've been cranking away at another pass through my various custom rules documents, in order to streamline my use of pronouns. We wouldn't want the world to think all gamers are unable to be inclusive of both genders, now, would we? I've hit the first four of these thus far, and even gave them a second proofing since I found one or two errors with the fixes I made in this regard. Whoops!
That's about it thus far... though all of this was pretty involved work, truth be told. As for what's coming next? Expect more combing through of the verbiage in my custom rules (both the Universal Heroes and Edition 13 stuff), as well as progress on the last bits of the Timely Heroes reference that need it. I only have six more characters to modernize before I can add all new folks to it, after all.
What, you can 'Like' (insert pedantic game here), but not the 13? For shame!
I've added plenty to the 13 of late, including the Lady At, the Slaggregator, Satokata Matsu, (just) Matsu, Murdermouth, Khronos, the Inveterate Invertebrate, the Grim Determinator, the Terrible Thingus, B'ntri (Typical), Yesterday's Yvonne, Basher Bob, Xenia Xylia, the Robothorrior, Junge Donner, Typical League Electronicists, the Force Exponentializer, the Copyright Infringer, and Yash Alloy!
In the event that those expressive icons at the top (and bottom) of the page don't tell enough of the story for you to see what lies beyond them, here is a quick summary of just about everything on the site. I even added one or two pages that I didn't have room for in the navigation bar above (well it looks like I do, but there's more coming... oh yes.)
The New Universe: It was the world outside your window - at least, until the so-called White Event rippled across the face of the earth, leaving approximately two in every million people forever changed. With the dawn of the paranormal, the world would be forever changed - and for the worse - as various governments scrambled to master this new, uncontrollable power.
Gi Joe: a Real American Hero: Assembled from the very best members of the various armed forces, Special Counter-Terrorist Group Delta is also known by its nickname, Gi Joe. This group was created to handle all kinds of threats to democracy, but was forced to focus its efforts on Cobra, a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world! Only Gi Joe stands between Cobra and its nefarious goal...!
Timely Heroes: The dawn of the heroic age, the 1940s were an era fraught with peril, both in the form of rampant fascism as well as villainous individuals of great personal power. The only thing standing in the way of their conquering the world were a loose band of stubborn, individualistic super heroes determined to protect freedom at all costs!
Transformers: Robots in Disguise: Traveling to our world across both space and time, the diabolical Megatron has come to our planet to seize control of the incredibly powerful Fortress Maximus - and will destroy anyone and anything that gets in the way of this goal! It's too bad for him, then, that the Autobots were ready for him and his flunkies, and literally had years to prepare for his arrival...
Variant Earth 13: Superficially reflecting the 'real' world, Variant Earth 13 is a nexus of sorts, a place that has an analogue of events in a multitude of other timelines. While the Powers That Be try to keep a lid on things and preserve the status quo, all manner of ascendant beings are quite active in the pursuit of their goals, and events are quickly spiraling out of control...
MSH Infinity: Built for adventures throughout a multiverse of possibility, the Planescape campaign setting featured a battle of ideas amidst incredible locations. The MSH Infinity reference will be an eventual translation of this incredible material into MSH RPG terms, allowing you to take your heroes on an adventure they won't soon forget - if they don't simply move in...!
Marvel Universe Miscellany: A place for those folks that don't quite fit into the sections above, the Marvel Universe Miscellany is a sort of repository for odds and ends that I've perpetrated over the years in statistical form, folks I don't want to build a whole reference for yet I wouldn't mind featuring on the site - since I did make them playable, after all.
Custom Rules: This is a compendium of the custom-built rules systems I have created for use by the general public. Currently, these rules are for the Universal Heroes Role Playing Game ('Classic' MSH RPG) as well as the 4C System: Edition 13 rules. I intend to eventually add Saga versions of all this material, as well as rules for one more game - but that's down the road some.
The Technohol 13 Master Roster: In the event that you are looking for a character you think I've covered in the past but don't want to leaf through the above sections to find him or her (or it), you can't do wrong to look here. This is a compendium of links to everyone I'm currently featuring on the site, in both their MSH Classic and Saga versions. It's huge but comprehensive!
Technoholic Updates: While I try to update the 'news' section above on a weekly schedule, more or less, I usually update the Updates page as soon as I've added something to the 13. Sometimes I'm working 'ahead' and sometimes I'm not, but that'll show you just what it is I'm up to at any given point in time, in the event that you're looking for the newest in Technoholic goods.
The Atomic Links: This is a collection of MSH RPG links I have assembled for you, either in a Classic or Saga flavor. The list seems to be dwindling rapidly of late, as AOL and now Geocities seems to be removing all their hosting services (or going under, as it may be). But these links nonetheless lead to additional MSH RPG material for your gaming use, so check them out when you're done here.
Technoholic Basics: This is a quick bit of information about the site itself, going a bit above and beyond what you see here on the 'main' page, and goes into my motivations for the site and so on. It's also where I've placed the Technoholic Color Changing Mechanism, in the event that you would rather pick your own color than go with the quasi-random Color Rotating Thingus I built a bit back.
Author Information: In the event that you'd like to know a little bit more about the author of this here web site (everything on technohol.com is written by me unless specifically noted otherwise), this is the link for you. Feel free to read about my sad little life and get to know me some, and if you have a burning need for even more Firebomb dirt, a link is provided therein.

Got something to say to Firebomb? Sure, I used to have a Guest Book here that people would love to deface, but I had to take that down and haven't bothered putting up a new one yet. Or a forum or anything snazzy like that. So, since I don't have one of those any more, feel free to drop me an e mail message any time, utilizing this address here: email@example.com.
