Mayfair the Sourcebook Be with Us

The Fire and Water Podcast Network has recently added to their lineup! DC RPG: The Hero Points Podcast, by Siskoid of the famous Blog of Geekery, has already reached its fourth episode in which they covered the 1990 Justice League Sourcebook with Booster Gold on the cover.

Mayfair Games Justice League Sourcebook

That beautiful cover is by Kevin Maguire and Joe Rubinstein. But it's also worth looking at the back cover, with a pull quote attributed to our hero.

Wow, there's so many villains! Has the Justice League really fought all of them? this is too cool . . . Everybody from the Appellaxiansâ„¢ to the Injustice Leagueâ„¢ . . . Even Starro the Conquerorâ„¢ and Magna Khanâ„¢ are in here! -- Booster Goldâ„¢

While the covers are nice, most who bought this sourcebook did so for the role-playing content inside. The book even includes stats for role playing as the Capitalist Crusader!

You can find scans of those pages or listen to the podcast at Keep up the good work, guys.

Time to Let Someone Else Talk

I like it when bloggers I like talk about Booster Gold because that means I get to share links to their work.

Today I point you to Siskoid's Blog of Geekery, where Siskoid gives Skeets full credit for saving the life of America's Greatest President as seen in Booster Gold, Volume 1, #9.

One note about the encounter that Siskoid leaves out: Reagan rewarded Booster with the gift of a pair of kittens, Jack and Jill. Skeets never liked the cats, so they were gifted to Booster's secretary, Trixie Collins. And that's the last we ever heard about that. (Get to work on correcting that oversight, Geoff Johns!)

Playing with the Past

I'm not typically a podcast guy (I can't listen at work, and I have more than enough to listen to otherwise), but that doesn't mean that I don't recognize talent when I hear it. (Well, actually, people tell me I have a tin ear. But never mind that now.)

Shag of and Siskoid of Siskoid's Blog of Geekery have teamed-up to present a new podcast about role-playing games. Their first installment is about the Mayfair Games DC Heroes Role-Playing Game. Booster Gold fans should recognize that as the first game to feature Booster Gold as a playable character — in the mid 1980s!

DC Heroes Role-Playing Game featured stats for both Booster Gold and Skeets, as well as a Booster Gold-themed module, "All That Glitters," that included Goldstar and Jack Soo.

You can find previous Boosterrific Blog posts about Booster's role in the game here. also hosts a single-player Flash version of the board game from the "All That Glitters" DCHRPG module here.

So if you're the sort who likes to listen to people talk about long-discontinued role-playing games, give the Fire and Water podcast a try. You might be glad you did.
