  1. Thanks, I simply don't want the book to feel like Champions (which I love). I am afraid it will be 80$ for me...
  2. Thanks for the answer Laz. To clarify, when I mentionned character sheets, I meant character write-ups in the book, as opposed to a blank character sheet. Regarding Character write-ups, I would try to remove as much clutter as possible. The character write-ups of MHIRPG are generally well laid out and clear but I believe could be improved even more. As an example, I believe Narosia had the right idea by grouping the character write-ups (not the PC character sheet at the end but the write-ups in the book (like the wolf page 404)) by theme: Characteristics, Perception, Movement, Defense, Offense, Skills, Perks, Complications. It looks very organised. Also, I find it annoying to see “abilities” like Short Leg: Run -2m in the power section. There is already a Movement section, why not compile the cost in the section instead of cluttering the write-up? (I made changes in bold to clarify)

    Congratulations, well deserved! I believe it is the second year in a row a Champions product wins.
  4. Vote for Golden Age Champions

    Golden Age Champions won! Am I correct to say it is the second year in a row a Champions product wins?

    Guys, We have been overtaken by G-Core ang V$V is closing on us. Was there a message sent to the Kickstarter participants. We need to mobilise!
  8. Hi Laz, Looks pretty good. Like Norm, I hope the visual in the book will be in line with what we see on the website. I am curious to know how powers, equipment and generally how the characters will be presented. While a truly appreciate the flexibility that HERO provides, I hope Extinction Events will be a fully worked setting as opposed to a loose set of examples as we often see (and rightfully so) in genre books. The website states the book will provide: 1) Rules for psychic powers available in the Extinction Event campaign – MHIRPG does that well at least for Magic. The spells are described in the Magic chapter in text and game information, but on the character, you only find the name of the spell which take away a lot of the clutter and remove the perception for newbies that HERO characters are written in undecipherable codes. 2) A wide assortment of weapons, armor, gear, terrestrial vehicles, and spacecraft - This is even more important than for powers, I'd like to see equipment and vehicles portrayed as gear and not written like power builds. as an example, I'd rather see equipment (both examples from MHIRPG) written like this (this looks like real gear): EQUIPMENT Weapon OCV RMod Damage STUN Shots STR Min STI Tactical 5.0 +1 +1 2d6-1 +1 11 6 Kukri, Large +0 +0 1d6 +0 — 10 Armor MHI Body Armor (8 PD/8 ED), MHI Earplugs, Flashlight, monocular Instead of this (this looks very gamey, it is fine for a power or a super equipment in a Champions game but looks out of place for a non-superhero piece of gear) 60 Abomination: Multipower, 120-point reserve All OAF (-1) 3f 1) Shot: RKA 2½d6 [9] Area Of Effect (1m Radius; +¼), Autofire (5 shots; +1½), +1 Increased STUN Multiplier (+¼); OAF (-1), Limited Range (40m; -¼), Reduced By Range (-¼), Reduced Penetration (-¼), Two-Handed (-½), 9 Charges (-¼) 2f 2) Slugs: RKA 2½d6 [9] Autofire (5 shots; +½), +1 Increased STUN Multiplier (+¼); OAF (-1), Limited Range (100m; -¼), Two-Handed (-½), 9 Charges (-¼) 1f 3) Underslung M203 Grenade Launcher: RKA 2½d6 [1] Area Of Effect (15m Radius Explosion; +¼); OAF (-1), Limited Range (150m; -¼), Two-Handed (-½), 1 Charge (-2) 1f 4) Silvered Bayonet: HKA 1d6 (2d6 with STR) 0 Reduced Endurance (0 END; +½); OAF (-1) I would hope for the same for the vehicles. I would like to vehicle written as such instead of the one-page character sheet. MHIRPG does that well (pp213-215) Regarding Character sheets, I would try to remove as much clutter as possible. The character sheets of MHIRPG are generally well laid out and clear but I believe could be improved even more. As an example, I believe Narosia had the right idea by grouping the character sheet (not the PC character sheet at the end but the write-ups in the book (like the wolf page 404)) by theme: Characteristics, Perception, Movement, Defense, Offense, Skills, Perks, Complications. It looks very organised. Also, I find it annoying to see “abilities” like Short Leg: Run -2m in the power section. There is already a Movement section, why not compile the cost in the section instead of cluttering the write-up? Anyway, just some ideas. Looking forward to this.

  14. Golden Age Champions Discussion Thread

    Darren, apologies but I have only been around sporadically. I could start a thread on rpg.net with my review if it helps. I would ask that The Herodom jump in so I'm not just a lone voice in the dark. I could also try to post a formal review on rpg.net although I have no clue how it works.
  15. Champions Character Creation Cards Kickstarter Project

    I'm in! February is too far away... but it gives people time to budget it. Will the cards be graced with good fill colour art?
