I'm hopeful about VV4: Organizations. Champions has always had a strong spot for paramilitary criminal orgs, and untill 6ed, were extremely strong. May I ask, beyond VIPER, DEMON, IHA, and ARGENT, which other groups will be in it? I made a small list, and could only name eight groups, two of them squarely in the Dark Champions domain, one of them a legality existing branch of VIPER, and another a fractured remains of a once great criminal/terrorist organization which no longer (offically) exists.

You might have missed the "new evil organizations" part of the CV 4 announcement above. ;)

 

Although the current CU is actually doing pretty well on that front. Besides VIPER, DEMON, ARGENT and the IHA, we have the Circle of the Scarlet Moon (which was officially put in CV 2 as a "villain team," but I would argue is much more an "organization"); the Cult of the Red Banner (substantially detailed in Martial Enemies Vol. 2 -- and there are four other cults to the Dragon mentioned in The Mystic World); Bastion Alpha Security and ICON (both written up in Cops, Crews, And Cabals). Then there are the more regional groups, such as Canada's Hunter-Patriots (from Champions Of The North); Britain's Dark Druids (the followers of Cairngorm, from CV Vol. 3); India's Black Tiger Society, and the Pan-African Brotherhood (both described in relation to their supervillain members, in Champions Wordwide).

 

BTW one of those Draconic cults, Ouroboros, got a fair-sized write-up in The Ultimate Super Mage, and a fully-statted associated supervillain team in Digital Hero #4, so would be pretty easy to update.

Probably? You make me sad.  :weep:


Well, I am backing the KS so let's call it highly probable?

Indeed. Purchasable from the Hero Games website store:

 

http://www.herogames...s-volume-1-pdf/

http://www.herogames...red-banner-pdf/

 

Vol. 1 is a nice, inexpensive little collection of thematic villains; but Vol. 2 is more comprehensive than I expected in covering the Red Banner, considering the size and price of the PDF.

Any word on this production schedule? All traces of it no longer exist on the interwebs, from what I can find!

I couldn't get it to show up, but I did sign up for the newsletter, so it wasn't a waist.

That link and the production schedule link are both dead, hence my curiosity and slight concern about these projects. I'm ready to throw them my money, but no news!

For those wondering about the High Rock Press schedule, I spoke to Jason Walters about it at Origins and essentially, he is currently redoing the schedule. A new version will be up when he is done.

Thanks for that update. I didn't think to ask you when I saw you at Origins. It didn't occur to me he would be there. I would have loved talking with him. It was good to see you though.

Guys, I am trying to keep my side of the bargain. I have bought Golden Age Champions and Ghosts, Ghouls and Golems and I am now waiting to spend my money on the Champions Character Creation Cards and Danger International. Any news on these projects?

 

 

Darren Watts’s Golden Age Champions: I bought it through KS (but still miffed we missed the full colour mark)

 

Michael Surbrook’s Ghosts, Ghouls, and Golems: Sounds interesting. Probable buy.

 

Champions Character Creation Cards: Super interesting. Intrigue by how it will work. I still believe the Superhero Gallery in Champions 6E was great and that it should have been in Champions Complete. It should also be availble through Hero Designer. This is a buy.

 

Danger International: Buy!.

 

Aaron Allston’s Strike Force Organizations: Buy!

 

Champions Villains Four: Organizations: Buy! 

 

Michael Satran’s Imperial Throne: Potential buy.

 

Invictus! Potential buy.

 

Jason Walters’s Santa Muerte: Probable buy.

To be honest, folks, until Jason posts some kind of update, it is probably best to just assume that eveything beyond Golden Age and Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins is dead. That's not to say that such projects may not appear at sometime, but really until Jason actually announces that a project is being worked on, it seems silly to put much energy into even thinking about that project.
