  1. My Champions Universe is based primarily on the 4th Edition version of the official universe with a few elements of the 5th Edition added in. My campaign started back in 1993, and has continued on to present day, so when 5th Edition came out I updated all the PCs to 5th Edition rules. I very much liked a lot of the 'new' 5th Edition official universe, so have tried to slowly bring in those elements that I felt were a must, such as the updated versions of Dr. Destroyer, Mechanon, and Firewing. Still, there is a lot of the 5th Edition universe I have not yet brought into the campaign, as it would/will take some work on my end, such as the new version of the Champions, and the existence of teams like the Justice Squadron and Sentinels. For example, I am still currently using the 4th Edition version of the Sentinels, which is the large team of heroes from Canada, and don't want  confusion with the 5th Editions version of the Sentinels, a U.S. (New York?) based hero team. A few years back I began taking steps to introduce the 5th Edition version of Stronghold into the campaign by having the old 4th Edition version destroyed in a mass jailbreak.


    My campaign is now entering it's 26th year (in fact, my first session of this year is this coming Saturday).  :)

    Actually, let me make part of this easy. Here are all of my V&V to Hero (5th ed) conversions in one convenient zip file located on my Google Drive.


    Enjoy.  :)




    (If the link doesn't work for some reason, let me know.)


    SWEET MARY ANN! Thank you, Proditor! That's exactly what I was looking for, and MORE! I sincerely appreciate you sharing these! I've taken a quick look at some of the conversions, and they are wonderfully done. Thank you again! ?


    Also, thanks to all of you for chiming in and offering your assistance in my request, and special thanks to RJD59 for posting his 6th Edition versions of the characters.


    Certainly the HERO community is one of the nicest, most helpful communities I've ever had the good fortune to be affiliated with.

  3. Thanks, Archer. I was able to track down all of the Crusaders last night, but only the Shrew from the Crushers. I see your links lead to them as well. But the other Crushers conversions seem to be lost in time. It looks like HERO member Proditor actually made full conversions with HD files of many of the Crushers, but that link is dead and I don't know if he's active around these parts anymore. I do have stats for F.I.S.T., Mace, Hornet, and Shocker, which seemed to come from Proditor, so I have a good start on about half the villain team. :) 


    Again, thanks for your help!

  4. Hi All,

    As I recall there was once some old threads with conversions of Villains & Vigilantes characters to the Hero System, specifically the Crusaders and Crushers from the module Crisis At Crusader Citadel. Would anyone still have these around to re-post?

    Not sure what I think about this one; something looks slightly "off" but I'm not sure what.


    Which art program are you using for this work? Could you provide a link if it is web-based?

    Mangog, your art is just fantastic. Why aren't you doing freelance work for Hero?


    I cannot wait to see the rest of the Aquarians drawn and colored. I have not yet used them in my campaign, but plan to if you end up coloring all of them. Keep up the good work!

    Not bad at all. Man, I wish I had half the talent you guys who draw these pics do. Keep up the good work.;)

    Your artwork is just awesome! I can't wait to see the color versions of these (please say you're going to color them, right?). I have not yet run the adventure Scourge of the Deep, but now can't wait to put these villains up against my PCs.


    Great job!

    Hello All,

    It's me again Wildcat, and I've gotten that Pic of Crimbuster that I hinted at when I posted the Starspangled Hero. Like I said before this is for an adventure I'm runnign where the PCs will be in the bodies of past heroes from the Golden Age. I mostly used old 4th ed Champions timeline Heroes, and made them my own. and altered the 4th ed & 5the ed Timeline and did my own timeline to fit with my game.




    Um, the "timeline" link does not work.

    Hope y'all like.


    Storn, great pic. One of my favorite of all you've done. Your talent is exceptional! :) Keep up the good work.

  11. Back in the early 90's I was involved in a high level AD&D game. During one session, our band of adventurers witnessed a huge army of the Undead marching towards the city we had vowed to protect. As we dicussed what sort of action to take against the undead, we noticed a lone figure riding a nightmare at the back of the army, who appeared to be a skeleton in heavy armor. Immeditately the party freaked out and declared the mysterious being to be a death knight. I immediately squashed that idea.


    "What!?! It couldn't possibly be a death knight! There are only, like what, 10 in existance, or something like that. What the hell would one of them be doing here?"


    The party continued to doubt my ranger's line of thinking. So, I continued.


    "Look, if he was a death knight, why is he way back here, far behind the main army? Why isn't up front, leading the undead into the city? I'm telling you, it can't be a death knight!"


    Well, that convinced them. On our first round of attack against the mysterious being, it let lose a 20d6 fireball, the trademark attack of a death knight. The party's barbarian failed his saving throw, and nearly all his magic items missed their saving throws too and were destroyed. The rest of the party was nearly dead from the firery blast.


    My character's only response to the hatred in the eyes of my fellow party members was, "Well, what the hell do I know about the Undead? I'm just a ranger, after all!"
