  1. McFarland might be worth considering as a publisher for EMMA. They've published a couple dozen gaming books, but have a diverse field of subjects.
  2. This is the kind of gonzo stuff that I love. I would, however, prefer a HERO version. Perhaps that can happen one day. Original Suicide Squad is one of my favorites, especially the Silver Age adventures. The art from those early Suicide Squad comics is the pinnacle of mid-century American art. It's similar in style with Pink Panther, The Jetsons, etc. Love it. Maybe you can get artists to illustrate in that style for Explorers of the Fantastic. I enjoyed the interview with Ken & Robin.
  3. I've never been up to MACE. It's great to hear you'll be running HERO System games. The con looks like it has a diverse schedule of many different games. I noticed a whole page devoted to Pulp HERO System 6e being run by Robert H. Hudson. I won't be able to attend this year, but will look at next year.
  4. It was a great convention, and the Gaming Track and gaming schedule was packed with goodness. Unfortunately, the two Champions sessions that I and others pre-registered for were canceled before the start of the convention. They were the only game sessions using the HERO System, so it was disappointing that they didn't occur. Both sessions were full to capacity (8) players too. If you're planning on attending DragonCon 2020 then let me know and perhaps we can organize some HERO System games with the Gaming organizers.
  5. Will anyone on the HERO Games forums be attending Dragon Con 2019? I'll be in attendance and have signed up for the only currently listed HERO System game sessions (the Saturday night sessions). It's a 5th edition Champions two-part scenario. Details for parts 1 & 2 can be found at the embedded hyperlinks. Here's the Dragon Con Gaming site where you can search for events and sign up. Open slots are still available. Let me know if you're planning to attend and would like to play games.
  6. Hi Steve, I know you have Chinese mythology listed, but I urge you to consider the mythological beings (gods, creatures, etc.) and folklore of Taiwan. Taiwan folklore is different than that of the mainland since it incorporates native islanders (aboriginal) myths which are unique, and a fascinating mythology in itself. Here's one site that has maintained a repository of Taiwanese folktales and traditions. Thanks in advance for considering Taiwanese mythology.
  7. Enthusiastic fan quotes for some of the San Angelo sports teams and events, especially super sports would be a great addition. How about Super Major League Baseball or Super Rugby Union? Super Soccer (Football), Super National Football League, Super NBA.... Maybe some non-realworld sports specifically for superheroes: Furious Psionic Fights, or Eldritch Arcane Duels, Around the Moon NASCAR...
  8. The version of Hero Designer that I'm using, which I think has the latest update, only has options for 5th edition revised or 6th edition (the two volume Blue Books).
  9. I'm totally looking forward to the new edition of San Angelo: City of Heroes. I was just browsing through my original copy yesterday for a planned Champions game.
  10. The picture must have been taken with a Smart Phone. What I call "Fauxtography" ? Use actual camera, and buy film not pixels.
  11. I like what you're doing with the media stations and channels. Nice logos! How about adding a list and short description of some programming on the channels and stations. Live talk shows, or podcasts, of interest to local superheroes. Also, perhaps a local online newspaper (site, media outlet -- I'm not sure what it's called these days) with some example "headlines" and "newspaper clippings" that can be used as short scenario ideas or rumors for GMs to incorporate or use as jumping off points to start adventures and campaigns.
  12. I'm enjoying this thread and the 3e characters so that I can see how they compare with 5/6th edition characters (the only HERO versions I've played). I do have a copy of the Champions 4th edition BBB that I picked up used in the early 90s. I read it, created some characters, and never got a chance to play HERO until 5th edition Revised.
