  1. Any chance that Ghosts, Ghouls, and Golems gets another printing?

  2. Champions Character Creation Cards Kickstarter Project

    There won't be room on the cards for human figures, attractive or otherwise. Just lots of text. The stretch goals will include a second "booster" deck filled with more Ability cards, and possibly a Dark Champions deck. We'll see how it goes. If the project does well, I'll think about a Fantasy Hero Deck KS. Jason Walters, Publisher
  3. Champions Character Creation Cards Kickstarter Project

    I'm thinking they're more likely to be graced with extensive text and write-ups! But we'll see what Ruben can pull off.

  5. Tiger's Eye Media Media 2017 Wrap up

    From our friends at Tiger's Eye Media: "First, I would like to say thank you for all your support. It's been a good year here at Tiger Paw Press thanks to you. This year we released new titles in the S.I.D.s report, Wondrous Treasures and Monster Mash lines. We added to the Grimiore Arcana series, Technomany spell list and released a Psionic Compendium. Some of this was on the release schedule some of it was added as the year went on. "Well, now Christmas is almost upon us and that means that 2018 is just around the corner. So I think it's time for TPP to decide exactly what will be released in 2018. I've been giving it some thought and have decided a couple things. "First, a release schedule isn't really an accurate indication of what will be released in 2018. To many times this year things were moved, bumped and in some cases removed titles. Second, a set release period, even by quarters, doesn't work out well either. This is due to the before mentioned reasons and a pesky thing called life. So instead I have decided to make a small list of produces that I plan on finishing and releasing in 2018. S.I.D.s Report & S.I.D.s Bulletin There will be new titles in this series in 2018, two such titles will be S.I.D.s report - Denier & Company & S.I.D.s Bulletin - Black Spyder Wondrous Treasures New titles in this line will be released. Wondrous Treasures - Bows & Wondrous Treasures - Arrows are in different stages at this time. Monster Mash Continuation of this line will include Monster Mash - Occulord-kin II & Monster Mash - Krylons is planned. Villainy Codex III Villainy Codex III will be released in 2018. This book is planned to reintroduce an some "friends" while introducing some new "anything but friends". Technomancy Complete This product will be a compilation of the two Technomancy spell list combined into one organized and bookmarked PDF
  6. Physical Books?

    You can get physical copies of the 6E1 & 6E2 print-on-demand from One Book Shelf (DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, etc). In fact, we set that up specifically for fans like yourself Jerrod!
  7. Reprint HERO System 6th Edition Core Books ?

    No - though they are all available through One Books Shelf (RPGNow, DriveThruRPG, etc etc) in the form of print-on-demand. So you *can* get physical copies if you need them. Hero Games is more interested in doing shorter, rules-inclusive books like Champions Complete and Fantasy Hero Complete these days, and also supporting our small but productive community of third party publishers. In fact, we will have some news on that front to announce shortly!

  12. New Product: Insect Powers PDF

    Ever since Spider-Man showed up on the superhero scene, characters with insect or insect-like powers have been popular. That popularity has carried over into Champions, and even into other genres (such as priests and sorcerers who worship strange insect gods in a Fantasy setting). This work includes a selection of Insect Powers for use in your HERO System campaigns.
  13. Hero Games and Heroic Comics

    There have been some questions lately about what relationship Hero Games has with Heroic Comics, both historically and in terms of their current projects. The simple answer to the later question is that DOJ Inc, the current owners of the Hero Games intellectual property, has never entered into an agreement with Heroic Comics, aren't currently working on any projects with them, have no active communication with them, and share no properties in common with them. In short, we have no relationship. Historically speaking, back in 1987 (when I was a senior in High School and Steve Long was just entering law school), Hero Games signed an agreement with Heroic Comics to publish a Champions comic book using certain specific characters from (I think) the third edition Champions Universe. These characters they do have the rights to: which is why they were not as I understand it in the forth edition or subsequent versions of the Champions Universe. We hope this clears up any misunderstandings that may have arisen. Jason Walters, Publisher
