Upcoming Hero System One (and a Half) Shot

Hey all, sorry for not posting more. very busy lately and the reason for that will be revealed soon, but not now! You should probably keep refreshing this blog every 10 seconds, sacrificing your need to bathe and poop in a toilet to keep in the loop!

Anyway, Eppy and Jim have expressed an interest in playing my favorite of all systems: the Hero System. I have been playing that system since the mid 80’s and am a huge fan of it so I am more than happy to run the game for them!

I plan to have a night of character creation and a system walk-through then another of the actual meat of the adventure.  Standard super hero setting in a contemporary supers-filled NYC will most likely be the way to go.  Perhaps we can also do a “Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense” setting where the PC’s are parts of a not-really-that-secret organization dedicated to protecting people from the horrors that lurk in other dimensions… or The Times Square Gap.

So for this game I will have Eppy and Jim playing, and I will recruit Andrew, another Hero System devotee who can recite many of the rules by heart like myself, also Herzy Jersey Keeley, The Titanium GM, and good ol’ Tom. Very ol’  Tom. Tom is Ol’.

I can’t wait to see what people come up with!

Here’s a link to the basic overall rules PDF about character creation, skills, powers, and some combat.

  1. I’m definitely psyched to dust off my old Hero System books and jump in on this again!

  2. Moi aussi.

  3. Have fun and please post re: the game! I’ve been tempted to break out old systems myself lately, mostly White Wolf.

  4. Yes, please post a little about the characters. My favorite old champions character was a bolo-throwing size-changer. He could be a really little bolo-thrower or a really big bolo-thrower.

    I was a bit limited in my imagination.
