The Official System 4ce Information Wiki
System 4ce. The international organization dedicated to research, rescue, and defense against paranormal, superhuman, and extraterrestrial threats. Originally founded by surviving members of the Adventurers of America, System 4ce personnel bravely stand between the worst dangers of the universe and the peaceful people of Earth.
Within these pages, the inspiration, history, challenges, and triumphs of this remarkable team are laid bare for the first time. Candid images, and compelling text bring to life not only the incredible adventures of the planet's greatest defenders for the last twenty years, but also their tender, private moments never shared before with the public. Not just the heroes themselves, but the entire universe of System 4ce personnel, technology, and procedures.
August, 2017 The Kickstarter for the 3rd edition of V&V -- known as Mighty Protectors -- has successfully concluded, albeit a bit behind schedule. We're leaning toward using these new rules for the next System 4ce campaign, but familiarizing ourselves with the new system is likely to take awhile. The hope is for that to pay off in terms of more streamlined play. Expect discussion and comparative summaries here on the Wiki!
March 18th, 2013 Jeff Dee and Jack Herman have apparently prevailed in their fight for control of the rights to V&V. Whether that paves the way for a new edition of the game any time soon remains to be seen.
October 13th, 2012: Migrations to the new server here at Psidonia are nearly complete. The Sys4Wiki is now updated to latest PHP, MySQL, and MediaWiki software and the databases are once again functional. Make updates with bold confidence!
August 5th, 2011: Villains and Vigilantes creators sue Scott Bizar in an effort to wrest trademarks and distribution rights from the Fantasy Games Unlimited founder. Jeff Dee and Jack Herman claim their distribution contract was only with FGU, which was dissolved in 1991, but Bizar has continued to claim rights to the game.
