The Evil Genius store carries our flagship product - Everyday Heroes TTRPG - based on d20 Modern, built on 5e. It also pre-sells our first 8 Cinematic Adventures - Pacific Rim, Kong: Skull Island, Highlander, Escape from New York, Total Recall, Rambo, Universal Soldier, and The Crow.
We currently don't have shipping prices entered for physical rewards in BackerKit. We plan to wait until closer to fulfillment to enter & charge you for the physical items on your survey to get the most accurate/fair fulfillment prices. We will update backers after entering those shipping prices before we charge you in BackerKit.

Hello, Evil Backers,
You've asked for an Urban Arcana refresh and we've heard you! To get things started, Evil Genius Games is launching an open submission contest that invites you to create the backdrop for our Urban Arcana setting - a magical world set in modern times, complete with the origin of magic and the fate of elder races such as elves, dwarves, and halflings.
The Low Down (TL;DR)
Evil Genius is launching its Urban Arcana refresh
Inviting fans to submit their ideas for the world
Submissions open March 20th and end April 20th, 2023.
The winner will get full credit and be paid competitively for their work
Imagine a world where magic is real, and the impossible becomes possible. But how did this magic come into existence? Was it a gift from the gods, or the result of a long-forgotten experiment that went awry? Your proposal should delve into the origins of magic and how it has shaped the world we know today, as well as explore its effects on the modern world and its people.
The elder races, with their centuries-old wisdom and knowledge, have their own story to tell. How have they adapted to a world that has changed beyond recognition, and what role do they play in the present day? Your proposal should explore the struggles and triumphs of these ancient beings and their relationship with the world they now live in.
Submit your 200-word proposal now and show us how you would create a world full of wonder, enchantment, and ancient races.
Semi-finalists will be invited and paid to write a 1,000-word proposal expanding on their initial pitch. Our fans will vote on the submissions. One of those three will be hired to write a 50,000-word history of the magical world of Everyday Heroes.

Shipping Update: Boy I wish I lived in Sydney!

Hello Evil Backers,
We have some exciting shipping updates for you. Well, especially if you live in Australia or New Zealand. :)
Australia, New Zealand, and Asia
Your product is picked, packed, and shipped. You should receive your order in the next few days!
The product is still held up in inspections in a facility in Detroit, MI. Once it's released, we will begin shipping the packages out.
The shipment landed yesterday and is currently undergoing customs clearance. If all goes well, we should be able to ship soon.
We don't have a timeline to release the character sheet and charactermancer just yet. We're working with Roll20 to finalize that timeline. Escape From New York and The Crow are in development and are scheduled to be finalized this month. Question: Do you want us to release the two Cinematic Adventures ahead of the character sheet? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
We're making good progress with the Foundry conversion of the Core Rulebook and expect the conversion to be released on time in April. We currently don't have plans to convert the Cinematic Adventures just yet.
We are not officially working with Fantasy Grounds however a few of our customers are doing their own conversions. We're working with them to see if we can support their efforts.
The Everyday Heroes Core SoundPack is built and currently just going through a review process. The Core SoundPack is comprised of cool sounds like subways, dockyards & shopping malls. So three generic locations that are the staples of most action movies.
Escape From New York
The redemption codes for this SoundSet have been distributed to all its purchasers. If you haven't received your code, please email email@example.com with your status. (And don't just post a comment).
The Crow is currently in production and Syrinscape aims to release it soon. This one is taking a little longer as they are essentially creating a music album in the same vein as the original movie. Lots of original music, both with and without vocals, and all tied to the adventure.
Email, Don't Post Questions Specific to Your Order
As always, if you have any questions about your order, email our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Everyday Heroes in French Anyone?
about 2 months ago
– Thu, Jan 26, 2023 at 09:58:40 AM
Evil Genius Games and the French distributor Neoludis announced today that a French version of the Everyday Heroes brand will be produced and distributed in EU French-speaking markets.
In 2023, Evil Genius Games will release 9 roleplaying products including Everyday Heroes, the spiritual successor for d20 Modern, as well as several Cinematic Adventures based on iconic movies such as Rambo and Escape From New York.
“The many universes of the Everyday Heroes brand are known to everyone on the planet,” said Arnaud Bourez, CEO of Neoludis. “It will be great to see French-speaking players going through the Total Recall adventure or fighting Kaijus in the Pacific Rim setting!
The translation of the Everyday Heroes Core Rulebook is currently underway and is scheduled to be released in Q4, 2023. The Cinematic Adventures will quickly follow.
“This partnership is a great way to offer the French TTRPG communities a fresh take on the modern roleplaying game,” said D. Todd Scott, Owner of Evil Genius Games. “I think it's prophetic that our first 5 movie license deals were with StudioCanal, a french company.”
For Neoludis, this partnership presents an opportunity to grow the presence of the TTRPG market within the French-Speaking Markets. Stay tuned for more announcements, more teasers, and ultimately amazing books for an amazing time with your friends.
