I’ve been creating characters for my upcoming HERO/Champions event for Gameday and HOO BOY am I rusty. It’s painstaking, basically like having to re-learn a language you haven’t spoken in forever.
Thankfully, there are various pre-fab products that do a certain amount of work for me. Still, I’d forgotten how much up-front work HERO asks you to do; you’re not picking stuff from a list on playbook, you’re designing the playbook from scratch each time.
Too much effort for the alleged payoff? Legit question.
Still, seeing a well-crafted power is pretty satisfying. Like seeing that someone’s used LEGOs to build a coffemaker or something.
