Apparently Kromm moonlights as Will Shortz. I don't get a single one of those.

Condorman? EDIT: Or Creation, which seems more likely.

Not sure on this one...

The End? EDIT: No, The Enemy fits better.

Spartan? Sleepover? Saw? Spanglish? (I'm guessing it's not that one...) EDIT: I'm going with either Style or Secrets.

EDIT: Placeholder guesses:

Creation
The Mission
The Enemy
Style

I'm thinking Champions, but I can't find any 1981 connection.

Edit: You retro-ninja'd me with your edit. All sound like good guesses.

We're roleplayers, not movie-makers.

Think of a context more relevant to us.

The first edition of Champions came out that year (had to look that up).

You're right. I absolutely didn't catch that (I was busy filling diapers when that was released). However, there's also this. Either one is possible, but now that I see there is a Champions-81 connection, I'm inclined to think that's it.

Neither seems to fit any Abigails or Drakes that I can think of.

Ah, that makes more sense. I think Champions and The Enemy are pretty solid at this point, but I have no clue about the other two. Note that in addition to the Abigail/Drake thing, MH4 has to satisfy the context of this post.

It will also enable "ordinary people" or otherwise make Crakkerjack happy in the context of this post.

Currently I'm guessing:

MH1: Champions
MH2: The Mission
MH3: The Enemy
MH4: Survivors

EDIT: Except it's NOT the one from 1981. I'm pretty sure on 2 and 3, though.
