  1. Need adversaries for you Star Hero campaign? Here you will find 2 new groups to add to your campaign. The Mirlons, a robot race determined to destroy all living creatures. The Qitarti are a powerful psionic race that has more knowledge than any other race in the universe.

  2. Thank you guys! These were all really good suggestions. I'll think about them and see what I can manage, practically speaking. Jason
  3. Everyone, Thank you for letting me know the existing version of Champions Villains Two: Villain Teams Character Pack was incomplete. I believe I've fixed this now, and you can feel free to re-download a copy from your client area as needed. Jason Walters, Publisher
  4. Hi guys! I'm planning out our next Bundle of Holding project, and I wanted to pick your collective brains about something which involves the history of Hero Games. As many of you know, I've been working steadily with the help of Allen Varney of Bundle of Holding to get everything that has ever been created in print by Hero Games going all the way back to its beginnings scanned and made available in electronic form. The next step in this process involves the old Adventurers Club magazines. I envision of B of H project that includes all the issues of it, Digital Hero, maybe some issues of Steve Jackson Games' old magazine Space Gamer. (I've worked with SJG on B of H project before), and maybe even the 67 issues Haymaker! should be included? Here are my questions: 1) How many issues of Adventurers Club were actually released? I've got a bunch of them here in my office, but certainly not all - and I'm unsure of what the last issue actually was. 2) Was there Hero System material published in Space Gamer, or just reviews *of* Hero System products in Space Gamer? I never subscribed to it, and it's hard to tell given the information available on the internet. (Maybe there were just reviews?) 3) In your opinion, should I contact John Desmarais about including Haymaker! in this project - and possibly about making it more widely available to gamers in cooperation with Hero Games? (If you are, in fact, John Desmarais please feel extra free to comment!) Jason Walters, Publisher
  5. In the sixties the United States Government approved the funding for two new agencies due to the rise of costumed criminals.

  8. It's back!

  9. We've completed fulfillment to Kickstarter backers, and print copies of Ron Edward's Champions Now are now available for purchase by the general public. Forty years ago, Champions: the Super Roleplaying Game was inspired by off-the-leash newsstand comics full of weird and headstrong creators. No one knew where a story was going, and what “heroic” meant changed constantly. That’s why it was the first role-playing game to hand you and a few friends a creative studio, rather than a constructed genre package. This book presents an exploration of those first-generation texts as envisioned and redesigned by Ron Edwards, long-time Champions player, co-founder of the Forge, publisher at Adept Press, and author of diverse role-playing games. It contains all of the rules you need to create and play any hero and villain you can think of, procedures for the Now so your play-experience is a cutting edge rather than a railroad; and a nonstandard, in-depth examination of superhero comics informed by professionals and insiders. Like the original game, this one isn’t a setting or a quantitative breakdown of a genre. It’s for your own superhero comics experience. However you want it! Silly or not silly, cool or not cool, retro or contemporary, appropriate or inappropriate, safe or edgy, relevant or not relevant. Never mind what some franchise pays for, what a fanbase demands, or what the experts pontificate about. This is your studio. Let’s see what you make with it! Zip file includes PDF, MOBI, and ePUB versions of the book, as well as a character sheet.

  25. Hello everyone! With the release of our final version of the PDF, several Kickstarter backers have noticed some issues: in particular that there were some problems with the charts for the history of superhero roleplaying games and comic books. I have frozen the print process while Ruben corrects these issues. Additionally, one of them noticed the .mobi file does not display the title or author on their Kindle properly. It says the the wrong ISBN number and Unknown Author. We will fix that as well. Additionally, several asked if we could set up a forum for discussion of Champions Now on the Hero Games website forums. I have done so; it is now a subforum you can access under the Champions forum in the website HERE. Once Champions Now has printed and all backers copies have been shipped, we will be making the book available in physical form through the Hero Games website, RPG distributor Indie Press Revolution, and on Amazon. It will also be available electronically through DriveThruRPG and e23. If your FLGS would like to acquire Champions Now for their store, please have them contact Indie Press Revolution at sales@indiepressrevolution.com
