Titanic Book of Characters Volumes 1-6 and two other bonus volumes!

It's been over a year since my last post...again...I really need to try and make a more concerted effort to get something up here more often. However, that is not the reason for this post. I have "completed" what is quite possibly my biggest project to date: The Titanic Book of Characters for the Classic Marvel Super Heroes RPG. These volumes are a collection of characters drawn from official sources like the Gamers Handbook to the Marvel Universe series, as well as downloaded from websites like Classic Marvel Forever, Ben Riely's MSH Page, and several others whose names escape me. No background information is listed with any of the characters, just the stats needed for play. Some of the characters' names were changed were they conflict with current Marvel sources. There are also a few characters converted to FASERIP from Mutants and Masterminds, and a handful of homebrewed characters as well.

The primary goal of this project is to build a character base to start forming my own MSH game. It started off simply enough, but ballooned into a massive catalog of characters. I've also got two additional volumes detailing Supporting Cast characters and Alien Races that became part of this sprawling project. I hope to start the actual world-building at some point. I'll likely even post my write-ups here. As it stands, these 8 voluumes aren't even the end of it. I'm already working on Appendixes for both the Titanic Book of Characters and the Supporting Cast book. With thousands more characters out there, I'll be constantly adding more characters to this database.

I want to stress that I didn't create most of these stats. Most were lifted from official sources. The characters from DC, Wildstorm, Atlas, Valiant, Archie, etc. were created by other people. Sadly, I didn't have the foresight to make a note of all the various creators back when I originally downloaded the characters. I take credit only for my own creations. All I've done here is compile the characters into a collected series of books. Because of this, I've hesistated posting these documents, and I'll remove them if there are any objections. Otherwise, I hope you find them to be a good resource for characters for your MSH games.
