I recently started up a new Marvel Heroic Roleplaying event. So far it is most of the cast of Nextwave (and Speedball on the New Warrior exchange program) exploring the events of Cullen Bunn’s Fearless Defenders.

For the characters who don’t have official datafiles, I was able to find great write ups online, but wanted to make them as similar as possible to the official printer friendly datafiles to avoid any confusion for people who had never seen the system before.

This week you can download the first of these; Agent 13’s Printer Friendly Datafile, based on this datafile by Brian Liberge at Stuffer Shack.
