New Bundle of Holding offering?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any ideas about the whisper campaign for a new Bundle of Holding? Here's what the email sent to me 2 days ago says:

 

REMEMBER CHAMPIONS?

Hey, remember back in April 2017 when we presented a colossal double offer of Champions books that were all debuting in .PDF for the first time anywhere? Those two offers had, gosh, 67 titles between them -- our biggest offers ever. Those two Championsoffers were big hits! Good times, good times.

Huh? Why do we mention those two landmark offers that brought into .PDF tons of early Champions titles for the first time anywhere? Oh... no reason. Just making conversation.

I understand that Hero is working on making the earlier titles available.  :whistle:

 

Ah, cool. Jason Walters made some sort of passing comment about this vis a vis Champions Now. I think it all makes sense now.

On that subject, I recall reading there was a pledge level to get your own unique villain (presumably off a rotating list).  But what's the pledge level to _be_ a unique villain?  :D

 

 

 

I think the real villains do it for the love of evil. If you need to get paid, you can't be a unique villain (there are too many run of the mill bad guys who get paid for their rapscallionism).

How do you catch a unique villain?

Unique up on him.


 

How do you catch a tame villain?

Tame way.

I'm working on Western HERO now.  Jason advised me to "hold off" on Star HERO, and now I know why.  Ultimately, I will do it anyway.  If anyone thinks it's a waste of time, please let explain:

 

I don't want these just "to collect."  I want re-mastered versions, printable when I need to replace them.  Essentially, I want these books to be available forever.  If you bough the bundles and happened to get Star HERO (I know I did ;) ), turn to page 6 in that PDF.

 

Now look at my page 6 from before Jason suggested "holding off."

 

 

 

After Western HERO, I intend to go on to Horror HERO, as I have a "donor copy."  If anyone cares to pony up a donor copy of Cyber HERO, I will be glad to do that one, too.  I have a lousy PDF of it done when I was first teaching myself how to do this, but I want to do a better job.  I've been looking for a donor copy of 3e Fantasy HERO _forever_, as it is hands-down my favorite edition.  Is it the best?  Not really.  That distinction belongs to 4e FH, I think.  However, it was the first fantasy game I ever played that I really enjoyed-- there was no enforced D&D-ism, and to be honest, the rules made it actually pretty hard to turn it into D&D.  And fortunately, my GM at the time didn't like Tolkien any more than I do, so there was none of that, either.  So yeah: maybe it's just sentiment.

 

Whatever it is, I _am_ glad that it got at least an acceptable scan in the BOH.  

 

I have already been in contact with Jason, and, in his words "I would love to have a scan of Western HERO."  So if nothing else, perhaps it will end up in the HERO store for cheap, like the other 4e stuff.  I won't say it will be in the next week-- for example, I'm hanging out here when I should be scanning!  :lol:

 

 

now I have to track down that thread "what do I want HERO to put out next," because this-- even though it's mostly bad scans (I wonder if I should offer up my 2e scans to replace the ones in the bundles?), it's still re-releasing the early stuff, and that's what I wanted most.  :D  I love these guys.  :i can't do a heart:
