New on Kickstarter! Extinction Event is a table-top roleplaying campaign guide for Champions Complete that introduces the alternate Earth of 2045 — a world in the grip of shadowy conspiracies. Over millennia a strange and secret alien invasion has been shaping the destiny of humankind. From the demise of the Neanderthals to the rise and fall of great cities and cultures, the invaders have sown chaos and confusion.
 
Now, in 2045, their dark plans near fruition. Fractured, distracted, and deceived human societies are almost ripe for conquest. In these twilight years before the coming storm, a new breed of humans with psychic powers walks the earth. They are the soldiers of PALADIN, the acolytes of the Illuminati, and hunted outcasts of society. It’s the stories of their lives that power the adventure that is Extinction Event!
 
The Extinction Event campaign guide provides everything players and game masters (GMs) need to play exciting science fiction conspiracy adventures fraught with military, espionage, and underworld threats. You can become heroes with the special skills, specialized gear, and psychic powers needed to take on the New World Order!
 
Extinction Event makes that easy to experience with Champions Complete compatibility, guidelines that speed-up play, resources for reducing GM prep-time, and art/story elements that can be used with any roleplaying rules. Back it, baby, back it!

Traveler fans, we just added 25 official Traveler products for Star Hero. It may not be chocolate and peanut butter but it is a great way to combine two popular, classic science fiction role-playing games. If you love the Traveler setting, check out how it has been adapted for HERO System

Mad Ferret LLC will launch a Kickstarter for a new HERO System setting, Extinction, in February.
In 2028, we foresaw our fate in the plumes of a distant comet entering our solar system. Humanity united to save itself from extinction as a planet killer comet veered to strike the Earth. Our efforts to stop Armageddon partially succeeded and the sky bled red for a decade as the comet’s debris shrouded our planet.
The fleeting unity that saved us vanished and we reverted to our corrupted nature. The darkened skies birthed a mini-ice age heralding worldwide chaos and suffering unlike any in history. The horrors of the human condition were exponentially magnified as famine, drought, epidemics, biting poverty, radicalization, and war spread across the globe. We stood at the edge of our extinction as surely as when the comet threatened our world, yet we were resilient, and where darkness reigned, light followed.
Today, in 2045, the sky is healed; its natural cerulean hue restored. Memories of the unity that saved us from extinction a generation ago inspired the birth of a new world order as a new species of humanity rises from the precipice of oblivion.
Extinction Event is a science fiction conspiracy campaign guide compatible with Champions Complete and the HERO System 6th Edition that immerses you in a near-future alternate Earth rising from the brink of extinction!
Take on the role of a transcendent human, one of the "Gifted", exhibiting strange psychic powers emerging from the comet's remnants striking the Earth. Will you take over the mind of a despot’s trusted advisor to eliminate a threat to regional stability? Perhaps you’d rather remote view into a private board meeting of a multi-national corporation to steal secrets in a high-stakes, winner-take-all game of intrigue? Maybe you’ll be showered with money by crazed fans in a seedy fight-club arena as your Gifts melt away the brutality of a score of vanquished foes? Or escape Earth to the Martian colony of Gedeon to explore the rumors of a prophetess claiming to know the secrets behind your new powers.
