Will there eventually be a version for people who want color?

No, I'm just going to release it this way for the moment.

The color is in YOUR MIND!! Sorry, couldn't let that one go...

 

Also, awesome news!

I'm just glad we can get it in print. Color or not. Does this mean that given enough time we will see the other 6E out of print books also be released this way as well?

Hi, this is great news...could you please tell me if you will be releasing Fantasy Hero, Champions and Star Hero in this format as well in the near fututre? I could order them all at once from Drivethru and save on shipping if so (I don't mean the 'Complete' versions, I mean the original larger editions). Thanks.

Please check the "Print On Demand" section of the forums. I'll place links there as new titles become available POD. Fantasy Hero and Champions 6th will indeed be made available as b&w paperbacks shortly - but not Star Hero 6th Edition, as I still have a pallet of them in my warehouse!

Are the covers in black and white or are they the usual blue and yellow?

They're blue and yellow. Jason

Jason, why not release this in color? 

i've shared the link with my gaming group. This is cool...

Just put my order in. Wish the delivery time was a little faster, but I'm still getting the core books!
Update: ignore the above, they printed them in a day and had them mailed to me within a week, which was about two weeks sooner than I expected. Awesome work, Drive Thruxton and Hero Games.

I received mine.  I have an original copy of the advanced player's guide and the blue and yellow on the reprinted books is not as vibrant as it is on the APG.  Other than that I have no complaints.

Can someone at least give me a list of chapter headings for what's in Volumes I and II?  Since I have Champions Complete, Champions Powers, and Hero Designer, I think I only need Volume II, but I'm not sure.  What do each of the books actually talk about?

Yes. Pretty much all of them and soon. Keep an eye on the forums for updates.

Champions and Fantasy Hero, yes. In fact, I've just approved Champions. Star Hero no because it's still in print and you can get it from the website.

Jason, why not release this in color? 

 

I don't like the profit margins that way, and I also wanted them to be a little less expensive. So it seemed like the right course.
