And for my second post ever here...
I've been thinking about starting up a Champions game. I used to be quite into the Hero System in the late 80s and early 90s, ran several games (mainly Fantasy Hero), played in several others (mainly Champions) and, through a club, sponsored an annual Champions pit-bash.
Not so long ago I picked up 5th edition. Yes, I have the errata, yes I know there's a 5th ed revised and I believe there is a website around which has tracked the differences (thank goodness). I'm pleased that the game is still around although the differences between 4th and 5th are pretty minimal as far as I can tell...
But I do want to get into Hero System again.. and I have a crazy setting idea..
I have some AD&D products... No really, hear me out. This is really quite OK. You know the sort..
Deities & Demigods.... SpaceJammer.... Planescape..
Can you see where I'm going with this?
The PCs are demigods, Champions-level superheroes, in a Fantasy Earth environment, where they can all inhabit the appropriate divine realms according to their pantheon (none of that nonsense about realms being associated with alignment). With a common cause they cross their cultural boundaries (and step on some toes in their own hierarchy) to fight evil in earth or, worse still, on other divine realms.
Now there's all sorts of other potential plotlines (including this rather nasty thing called monotheism which is making the divine realms disappear!) but the question I have...
Well, what do you reckon?
