Batman Villain Classics (Migrated)

Image result for 60s batman villains

(Migrated from the old blog. Original post date: 10/16/18)

Inspired by some discussion about how good batman villains are, as well as Dan D’s excellent Super Smash Classics funnel for Dungeon Crawl Classics, I’ve started putting together a random character background generator based on classic batman villains. At the moment it’s a d20 table with some of the most iconic villains, but I’m working on expanding it to a full d100.
Equipment is listed with fairly general stats, but implies a dB/dX style ruleset.

Edit: Updated with another 20 classic 60s Batman villains in purple down below!
Edit: Added another 20 of the goofier villains from throughout the batman universe, expanding this into a d60 table. Pretty sure that’s the last I’ll do on this for now.
