comment An in-print superhero game system which is descriptor-based?
@thefinalson: As the name implies, Gumshoe is heavily designed around procedural and investigative play. The mechanics essentially guarantee that any clue necessary to the plot will be discovered, while giving players a limited pool of investigative skill points to spend to discover additional information. (Non-investigative skills work on a conventional skill + die roll vs difficulty.) (I'll stop there; more would be off-topic.)
