  1. New On Kickstarter! Extinction Event

    New on Kickstarter! Extinction Event is a table-top roleplaying campaign guide for Champions Complete that introduces the alternate Earth of 2045 — a world in the grip of shadowy conspiracies. Over millennia a strange and secret alien invasion has been shaping the destiny of humankind. From the demise of the Neanderthals to the rise and fall of great cities and cultures, the invaders have sown chaos and confusion. Now, in 2045, their dark plans near fruition. Fractured, distracted, and deceived human societies are almost ripe for conquest. In these twilight years before the coming storm, a new breed of humans with psychic powers walks the earth. They are the soldiers of PALADIN, the acolytes of the Illuminati, and hunted outcasts of society. It’s the stories of their lives that power the adventure that is Extinction Event! The Extinction Event campaign guide provides everything players and game masters (GMs) need to play exciting science fiction conspiracy adventures fraught with military, espionage, and underworld threats. You can become heroes with the special skills, specialized gear, and psychic powers needed to take on the New World Order! Extinction Event makes that easy to experience with Champions Complete compatibility, guidelines that speed-up play, resources for reducing GM prep-time, and art/story elements that can be used with any roleplaying rules. Back it, baby, back it!

  6. Champions Character Cards Kickstarter Project Live!

    You know - that's a good point Brian. Thank you: I didn't do a good job of explaining that. If we hit the stretch goals, I'm just going to send every backer the appropriate deck or decks, depending on what level they pledged at. (For example, electronic only backers will only get the electronic only files.) I'll do an update and see if I can change the explanations in the "story." Jason Walters, Publisher

  13. 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
