Champions Superpowered Roleplaying

Available at:

This, the first genre book for the HERO System 5th Edition, describes how to create and play comic book superhero characters and campaigns. Written by New York Times bestselling novelist (and long-time game writer) Aaron Allston, it's the most thorough look at the superhero genre for gaming ever created. Although it provides plenty of information on how to use the HERO System to create superheroes and superpowers, the general advice on the genre and how to simulate it in a game campaign is useful for any supers gamer, regardless of what rules he uses.
