DMs and players can find the best way to include it (or not). The following sections will detail different aspects of a shared-continuity universe spanning several different campaigns, goals, and styles.

Designing a Hub

Designing a Hub

An integral part of the Commander Overlay added to a Marvel Overpower game, is the hub. It is a team stronghold, a social hub, a place to spend XP, start research, investigate anomalies, find missions, etc. This allows players a space to interact with the game and other players while not actively engaging a specific mission. Not only is this concept thematically rich, it also allows players of different engagement levels to interact with the game at frequencies that fit the individual.
