AARON ALLSTON TO WRITE CHAMPIONS
SAN FRANCISCO, California � Hero Games, creators of the popular HERO System roleplaying game rules and game lines, announced today that New York Times best-selling writer Aaron Allston, author of novels such as X-Wing: Wraith Squadron, will write the new edition of Champions.
Slated for release in August, 2002, Champions is a comprehensive guide to creating and playing characters and campaigns in the superhero genre using the HERO System 5th Edition rules. The book also includes extensive sections on gaming in the superhero genre, gamemastering superhero games, and related topics, making it of use to all gamers who enjoy the genre, not just those who play the HERO System.
The Man is Back. I am now even MORE psyched about Hero 5th, especially since they have updated regularly under the new regime, and are telling us that we're on track to get the book in April.
