Welcome to The Alternates page, which is a jumping-off point for reading about the Sentinels RPG campaign I’m running called The Alternates.
If you haven’t played Sentinels of the Multiverse, then you should! It’s a cooperative card game featuring comic book characters invented entirely for the purpose of the game. (So don’t go looking for back issues of Sentinel comics – they don’t exist.) The makers of Sentinels of the Multiverse also Kickstarted Sentinels Comics: the RPG. And as a backer, I have early access to the game’s rules, which brings us to The Alternates.
To make this even more confusing for someone who’s never played the Sentinels card game, my RPG campiagn takes place in an alternate universe! I’m not going to go into all the details here, but ultimately, it means that many of the characters from the Sentinels comic book universe aren’t in the story.
To make this even more confusing, my campaign is wrapped up a lot in the “Metaverse,” which is the fictional universe in which Sentinels comics are real (but Sentinels superheros are still fictional). Wow. There are a lot of levels, here.
The game itself represents an animated television show (think of the animation style of the majority of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) on a premium cable channel, each game will represent one episode of the show, and the game logs I post here will be written as if they’re episode recap articles posted to an entertainment news site.
Did you get any of that?
Well, in the future, you can always come back to this page to find links to recaps and other materials about my Sentinels RPG campaign, The Alternates!
