From a coding point of view, all of the possible upgrades are in the const/upgrades.ts  file. The upgrades have the following type export interface Upgrade { name: string description : () => any level: number maxLevel?: number requires: null | string requiresHero?: string levelUpMessag

Rogue Champions - Marvel Champions LCG + Roguelike App

I have recently dusted off a project I started earlier this year: Rogue Champions. It is a companion web app for the Marvel Champions LCG card game by Fantasy Flight Games. Its goal is to create a rogue-like gameplay experience that spans multiple sessions of the game.
