S.I.D. is short for Super-powered Individual Database. This is a database that various government agencies use to keep track of all the various villains and heroes. Over the last few years, the number of super-powered individuals has skyrocketed.
It has become a full-time job to keep track of them all, as well as update information about them. And that is the purpose of this database. The database is designed to give law enforcement as much information as possible on supervillains - or any superheroes they may need to call for help.
This is a series of small products that will introduce new villains and heroes for your campaign.
This installment reintroduces the villainous organization known as The Conquerors. Neutron has escaped from Stronghold, and has gathered former and new comrades together. He’s ready to make the world tremble again! (Not that it really did the first time.) This supplement contains new villains, new schemes, and a familiar (yet new) group to pit against the heroes in your campaign.
Includes Hero Designer files & printable cardboard miniatures.

My next goal for Patreon is this: if we can hit 100 patrons, I am going to switch from our current method of accepting, editing, and publishing submitted manuscripts to polling you about what you would like to see published, then commissioning that work and letting all of you comment on the creation process as it happens. If we can reach that number of supporters, we can begin the long-desired process of creating specifically what fans of the Hero system want to see."

"I’m working away on editing the remainder of Gaslight: Heroic Investigations In Victorian London, while Carlos has begun layout of the book. Specifically, I’m currently editing Chapter Fourteen: Environmental Threats and Gaslight Villains, which covers topics like Victorian diseases, the nature and motives of villainy, roleplaying them, and their various types. Christopher Hackler has done some interesting work in this chapter, examining the fictional trope of the Victorian era baddies from every conceivable angle. I’m enjoying working on it."

At 270 pages, The Jolrhos Codex is a huge compilation of Christopher Taylor's Fantasy Hero ideas and work spanning several decades of gaming and writing.

When combined with the detailed Spell System outlined in the Player Guide GMs and players have everything they need to have magic in their fantasy campaign.
