Champions Now, baby! This is the fruit of the Champions, 3rd ed game I’ve been playing with MadJay Brown and Ron Edwards .

This is Ron’s take on a “4th” edition of Champs, I.e. “What if the consolidated Hero System never happened?” It’s also a product of all the great comics and RPG blogging he’s been doing on his Dr. Xaos blog.

And, hey, you can watch some AP footage of us right on the KS page!

I would love to see this come to fruition, so please spread the word.

  1. God Damn It Ron Edwards ! This is sucking me into a Blackhole of Nostalgia. Backed.

    I have a never-playtested substitute for the Speed Chart that I think would be faster and more chaotic (= more fun?):

    – Use a standard deck of 54 cards just like Savage Worlds.
    – Deal each PC and NPC a number of cards equal to their Speed.
    – Each card then represents their Phases.
    – The phases come in card order, again just like Savage Worlds.
    – Shuffle, and re-deal the cards at the beginning of every combat round. (Maybe have a second deck shuffled by a player ready)
    – GMs can of course group minor NPCs like thugs, agents and civilians that have the same Speed to share Phase cards each round.
