There's a lot going on. Recent Items of Note in the Superhero RPG field:
Champions is moving in an interesting direction with Champions Complete. A note on the product says it best:
"This product (Champions Complete/HERO2000) is a stand-alone, moderately priced book for playing Champions: arguably the most popular and longest-running superhero game in roleplaying history. It contains all of the rules necessary to play Champions: The Super Roleplaying Game, with no other book required."
I'm still not sure how I missed this one, but the chatter on the forums has it as a sort of 6th edition version of the 4th Edition BBB in design philosophy. I wholeheartedly endorse that approach! I get the whole "it's a system" thing but I think it's a lot easier to sell people on a single game book than it is to sell them on a basic book + advanced book + campaign book just to get started. This should be a positive move after a rough year or two for Hero.
The only negative is that it's a $40 softcover with a black and white interior. Where are they printing these? That's the same cover price as the DC Adventures hardcover that's full color and presumably has some licensing costs built in. I won't compare to WOTC or Paizo hardbacks these days as I know the volume is quite different, but that seems high to me for what it is. The Marvel Heroic basic book (full-cover softcover) is half the length (128pgs) and half the price at $19.95. M&M's basic rulebook (full cover softcover) is slightly longer and only $32.95. If you like the game it's probably not a huge thing but it seems like we are past the point where black and white interiors are standard, so I was hoping for full-color or a lower price to draw in some new attention.
For ICONS there's a nice new brochure and map of Stark City here. Other free previews:
I'm looking forward to this one quite a bit. Since I already have my own roughly-outlined city, I'm either going to steal parts of it or I may turn it over to one of the Apprentices to take a shot at running a Supers game themselves.
Also: Still no Team-Up!
For Mutants and Masterminds the anniversary kickstarter continues and is about to hit a stretch goal that would add in writeups of characters from old editions for 3E.
Power Profiles is winding down and is supposed to wrap up by the end of the year. Since we just got #36 "Death Powers" I'm guessing it will end at around 40 of them. They are a neat little package.
There is also something in the works titled Cosmic Power. I'm assuming that it's a sourcebook on that kind of campaign but I'm sure more details will follow.
Marvel: Amazon has the Annihilation books releasing in July. Could be fun. Maybe I will have run some Civil War by then...
