Save For Half episode # 17: "Champions by Hero Games"
It’s a "Super" episode of Save for Half today as the Fab 4 return to talk about the first edition of Champions, the Super RPG. Published in 1981, this 73-page rulebook gives you everything you need to fight crime, supervillains, and...math? We’ll give you the lowdown on the powers, the foibles, and mathematical formulas of this pioneering Superhero RPG; who’s on its 6th printing today!
No BODY, STUN, or d6s were harmed in the making of this episode. Not even with Killing Attacks!
Champions II and III really didn't add anything to the experience of 1981 Champions. I'd say drop off Champions completely at this point or maybe just spend some time talking about how a fabulous system in 73 pages turned into the multi-volume 1000+ page monstrosity it sits at today.
