Re: The HERO System 6th Edition

 

Steve,

 

Any chance we can get Black and White PDFs for page printout that won't drain our color ink cartridges?

 

Thank you for keeping my favorite Superhero game system alive and kicking!

Champions fan since first edition.

Shouldn't you be able to change printer properties to print gray scale?

 

That would be my suggestion.

The books have not yet made it to the US. As I understand it the ship with the first batch of books will be leaving China (and the printers) on September 10th. It'll probably to about three weeks after that before the actual books start making it to the various distributors. For now you can get the PDF from the Hero Online store and pre-order a copy of the hard backs.

Re: The HERO System 6th Edition

 

Will there be a 6th ed Combat Summery PDF, to help introduce new players?

 

or

 

Will the old one suffice?

 

The old one is mostly OK, but needs a couple tweaks. That's not on my immediate to-do list, but I'll see if I can get to it at some point.

Three weeks? Doesn't it take about six weeks for a cargo ship to go from Hong Kong to Los Angeles?

Boyfriend, who works for a steamship line, says expected travel time from Hong Kong to LA is between 11 and 17 days.

 

:)

 

Edit: Because ships are no longer wind powered, the transit times are fairly normalised and the variance in a particular transit is due to the number of ports of call and routing.

Re: The HERO System 6th Edition

 

Don't forget' date=' this ship has a hold full of 6E HERO System. That's a lot of extra power to draw from. ;)[/quote']

 

I'm supposed to point out that it doesn't work like that any more.

 

The books are in a big cargo container thingy, probably sharing space with a bunch of other stuff (probably other books from the same printer). The container is on the deck of the ship stacked up really tall.

First, thank you and your boyfriend for the clarification. :) Second, 6E is still aboard, so the essential point remains. Third, mention to him that he's killing the romance of nautical travel. :P

When are these gonna get here?

 

Reading this...

...tells me we have at least a few more weeks just for them to arrive in the US. After that they'll still need to be distributed...

 

Patience Grasshopper, patience...
