  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I got into HERO with 5th edition revised, and now use 6th. I did purchase the Early Champions and Champions 4th edition Bundles of Holding and from those bundles I read the early editions and discover the origins of what would eventually evolve into the generic, universal system we all love. HERO truly is the same game throughout all editions. There's been tweaks with every edition, and while I only have limited actual play exposure to two (later) editions, I'm immensely impressed with the foresight, deliberate thought, and play testing that was put into Champions 1st edition. It set the foundation for all subsequent incarnations, except for Fuzion, which I have no experience with.
  7. I'm not familiar with the Bubba The Monster Hunter books, but they sound like something I'd enjoy.
  8. I completely agree with your point and how you've proven it, @Chris Goodwin I'll even say that regardless of game system, having fun in a game is primarily "about campaign feel, character guidelines, and campaign setup."
  9. 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...
  10. Do you know the title of the made for TV movie?
  11. I wasn't aware there was a reunion TV movie produced in the 80s. Is it available in the series DVD boxset?
  12. I'm looking forward to Western HERO in PDF. I used Western HERO in the 90s for a short Western campaign that was a great success with the players. Unfortunately, I'm not able to find any local gamers that are interested in Westerns, regardless of the system used for the game.
