Help Jeff Dee get Villains & Vigilantes back

Yeah, strictly speaking not an OSR game as I define it, but I have a lot of good memories as a kid of playing V&V (though strangely, I have no memory of how the rules work).

Anyway, you may or may not know, FGU has held the rights to it even though they pretty much just sit on it, doing nothing. So Jeff Dee has started a fund to get money to try to get it back.

  1. To be fair, FGU isn't "sitting on it, doing nothing."

    FGU has released more than 20 new products for use with V&V (including 8 "Giant" print compilations of those products) since the legal issue sparked in early 2010. These are module-length products, like the ones from back in the day. On top of that, they've put out around 6 (IIRC) freebie NPC pdfs, plus a handful of other freebie pdfs. This is from 2010 through today.

    For comparison, MHG has put out 5 module-length products, plus 4 shorter (single NPC or mini-adventure) products for V&V over the same span. But they effectively stopped putting out stuff for V&V in 2011, and haven't released anything significant for it since that point.
