I had made a passing comment on wanting to set my new Ultimate Guardians game in 1985. I never expected my players to like the idea, but so far a couple of them do and now I am looking at it realistically.
I am rereading Watchmen and the Elementals to get myself back into that 80's superhero headspace.
I am also reading a bunch of alternate history stuff to see if there are any events I want to change, ala Watchmen-style.
Of course the big upside to this is that in 1985 I still have my Soviets! The 60's weren't so long ago. Lots of heroes can have tours in Vietnam in their backgrounds. Oh and the music Rocks!
So any ideas or suggestions you might have to make this even more fun would be very much welcome.
