Imaginary Friends is an adventure for the Hero System/ Champions 6th Edition and Savage Worlds in which invisible playmates come to life with deadly consequences. As much a long-term campaign supplement as an adventure, it features a set of strategies and events using the characters and depicting forces at work, rather than a completely linear narrative. 

You'll meet an entertaining array of sinister and unique characters who will engage roleplayers in tests of combat and the mind unlike anything you've seen before! I know you've probably heard that before once or twice, but I really mean it. Every playtest of this adventure has been fantastic, be it rules light or rules heavy.

We hope you'll be pleased and surprised at what you find inside the pages of Imaginary Friends. It's a very different sort of gaming experience.

What's inside:

A full supervillain team. (It wouldn't be nearly as cool an adventure if there wasn't a full supervillain team in it)

Villains opposing other villains!

A vast array of map locations that are easily reusable in any modern setting!

The groundwork for an easy to expand evil secret organization!

A sinister master mind!

A lesser master mind!

An agent-level mastermind!

Absolutely no mimes (or Master Mimes) whatsoever! 

If you help us reach our goal, we may be able to get you stretch goals such as cardboard heroes of the characters or larger maps!

It is written by legendary Champions adventure designer Michael Satran, author of such works as Foxbat for President, War of Worldcraft, Unkindness, Pretty Hate Machines, and King of the Mountain.  

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The adventure/setting is nearly finished and Blackwyrm has published almost 100 books over the years. From experience the biggest challenges lie in the production process. It's possible that in the process of getting more artwork drawn, maps created, layout completed, and so forth there could be delays in the process - though we've published many books of this type, and are confident in our ability to publish many more.
