The Deluxe Edition will have the following new stuff:
40 original supervillains. This will not just be stat blocks. Expect 1,000 words each. Backgrounds and origin, personality and stories. They will all live in the same setting, which I am calling the YOUniverse.
A few additional archetypes, chosen by readers who bought this level of pledge from the kickstart.
7 heroes, all inspired by heroes in the public domain, about 1,000 words each.
6 or more essays on models of super villain campaigning, from the Suicide Mission Team to the Villain High School to the Reverse Thunderbolts to the Necessary Evil. About 1,000 words each.
Complete revision of all the archetypes and other rules to fit with Steve's wonderful A-Z series. For example, the rules on cosmic powers in the beginning of the SVH will be revised to fit Steve's rules in C is for Cosmic.
And anything else I feel like I need to add to make this the best book I can make it.
The only thing I want to cut from the Basic Edition are the stat blocks for the sample villains that are already in there. They don't have any background or development, and I consider them a stopgap measure. Full and original villains will be much better. However, we may keep them anyway. I may leave that for Mike to decide.
