The 11th Hour for Champions Now

I would hate to see someone's pet project almost make it to the finish line but suddenly falter.  Hero Games' retro-clone of the Champions RPG called "Champions Now" is (at the moment of the writing of this blog post) at $18,459 of a $20,000 goal.  For $30 you get a physical and digital copy of the rules, which is a pretty good deal.  I'm personally interested in this project because I thought that later iterations of the Hero System/Champions have become a larger, more complex mess.  For example, in the most current version of Champions you build starter PC's on a 400 point base, rather than 250.

With a little over two days left, why not take a look?  You can find out more here.

  1. I backed it and I'm pleased to see it was indeed funded.

    For me its less about wanting a retro-clone (though I do prefer 4th edition and back over the latest two incarnations), but rather a curiosity about how they intend to add modern, indie-elements to the mix.

    Time will now tell...
