The Temple Of The Topaz Skull PDF

May 22 2015 03:09 PM | in Store Item News

A pulp adventure from Steve Long, author of Pulp Hero!

When the government enlists the help of Our Heroes to prevent the Nazis from obtaining a valuable Mesoamerican artifact, the PCs find themselves on an adventure that leads them to Mexico City, then to Central America, and finally to the mysterious, and potentially deadly, inner chambers of a long-lost temple! Can they survive the perils that face them — and the Nazis and tribesmen pursuing them — to return to civilization with the fabled Topaz Skull of Cozcatl Cuaxicalli?

The Temple Of The Topaz Skull is a Pulp Hero adventure designed for characters built on a total of 175 Character Points or less. The optimal number of PCs is four to six, but you can scale it up or down based on the number of opponents you pit against the heroes in various encounters.

Gone To Texas

May 13 2015 07:27 PM | in Store Item News

This Friday I'm going to catch a plane from Reno to Ft. Worth, rent a car, and drive to the small city of Denton. Why do you ask? Because that's where the archives of Aaron Allston's work are stored. With the help of his mother Rose, I'm going to go through those files, locate all of the material related to his decades long Strike Force campaign (including the now-famous bluebooks), copy them, and send them where they need to go so that a new Strike Force book (or possibly books) can be created.

Before his untimely passing, Aaron and I had been talking about producing a new Strike Force book for Hero Games. But we were both involved with other projects, had a lot to do, and it didn't seem like there was any particular hurry to get the project done. However, now that he's gone, his family and I believe it's important that his part of his legacy be preserved by issuing a new and expanded version of this seminal work of RPG game design. I hope you all will agree and support this project when it goes live on Kickstarter sometime later this year.

Please let us know if you have any problems relating to purchases made right before the website went down.
