Champions Live is a Live Action Roleplaying Game coming soon from Silverback Press, using a new rules set derived from the well-known and award-winning Hero System rules but modified for speed and ease of use away from the table. It uses a stopwatch, or "PCD" as the randomizer for conflict resolution- any device that keeps time to the hundredths of a second can be used. We use the Champions setting, which will be familiar both to players of the tabletop game and the MMO, Champions Online, by Cryptic Studios.

The Powercheck rules set was devised by Echoes of Empires, a design group consisting of David Christoph, Ben Walker, Jocelyn Fulljames and Steve Tasker, and edited by Darren Watts. The Champions setting material is by Steve Long, Darren Watts, and the many fine writers at Hero Games and Cryptic Studios.

Money pledged during this Kickstarter will be used for finishing the editing on the book, hiring a layout designer and purchasing some art, and printing the hard copies.

FAQ

  • Definitely softcover, probably 6x9 for ease of carrying around a LARP game site, and right now we guess about 150 pages, certainly less than 200.
