Champions Begins, The writening

All of the Player Characters have been designed and colored, you can see them all at my Pinterest page, but only some if you haven't signed up for an account.  I'll bundle them up and upload to somewhere else if people want.

 

Now its on to villain coloring.  Some of the villains look a little whacky but I'm okay with that, because they're bad guys and can look offbeat or lame (Power Crusher, anyone?).

Considering one of the villains IS basically Power Crusher pre Power, this is appropriate.

OK all the villains are colored in, I've uploaded the latest version of the villain and character books to the Champions Begins rough draft. All I need to do now is work up the VIPER suit.  The current incarnation looks a bit too much like very slightly modified COBRA outfits, and I think that strays a bit from the original concept.  From supervillain team to high tech action adventure bad guys.

 

I ran down some old VIPER costumes and previous incarnations in this thread, and most people seem to like a blend between 4th and 5th, and I want to come up with something really iconic and new looking that gives the feel of the original costume.  I got excessively detailed with the Dr Destroyer agents in that module, it would drive a comic book artist bonkers trying to draw 22 pages of these guys.

OK, an update: I've begun working on the maps for the various adventures.  Mostly its an updated version of the existing maps from the original adventure with some small changes.  I'm trying to keep them fairly simple and uncluttered, with some color but not very much.

Update again, I've uploaded a new version of the books to the downloads section.  New art, maps included, some editing and a few formatting changes.  Its getting very close to complete!

 

All I need to do is work up a cover.  I'm thinking of three different images.

 

The first is a view of Tanghal Towers, the heroes out side the safety barrier looking up at the top of the tower being demolished visible over the fence and the two supervillains of the chapter flying over head (one leaping).

 

The second is a take on the classic Days of Future Past X-Men cover with Lionheart and Spellbinder instead of Wolverine and Kitty, with the Wanted Posters being the other superheroes.  That might seem a bit dark and bleak, though.

 

The third is a montage of past Champions covers, laid out on a table like the Mission Impossible TV show beginning.  A manila folder open, character sheets in it, etc.

 

Anyone have any other ideas?
