Looking For Games
Are you a player that's looking for a game to play?  While it won't substitute for the LFGM thread on RPOL, you can drop a line here and see if there's a GM willing to add you to an existing game.

Re: Looking For Games
I could go for joining a game.  I miss you the rough and tumble action of a good Champions game.

You're welcome to apply for SWORD, though the 6e is a little different than previous editions.

Re: Looking For Games
What are the big differences?   I'm intrigued, I admit.

Re: Looking For Games
No more figured characteristics.  Some powers were rolled into one, disads are now complications.  No more figured characteristics is probably the big one though.

Yep, they give more points to do it with.

Is that bad for bricks, or does it even out?

Re: Looking For Games
I like it better, myself.  It makes DEX/OCV/DCV/SPD independent of each other.  Dunno, just really seems to suit me better.

Re: Looking For Games
*grins*  I'm one of those lazy gamers that hates change, especially once I have a system figured out.   But i'll try to find character creation online somewhere and see what happens.

Re: Looking For Games
From what I can tell, very little has changed between the two.  I have just picked up the books, converted a excel spreadsheet to total all the characteristics up correctly.

However I would really like to join a game, typically hero.  Genre doesnt matter ;)

For those of us who don't have 6th yet, can a character from 4th or 5th be submitted and worked through conversion?

Also... does your SWORD team permit characters whose heroic identity is typically undercover rather than openly and obviously one of the good guys?

Re: Looking For Games
I can convert. Just pitch your idea via PM in the game.

Re: Looking For Games
Thanks. I'll work up a sheet - may be a few days (between real life needs and my usual indecision).

Are there any powers from the earlier editions that are entirely removed in 6th?

Re: Looking For Games
In reply to Kevlyn (msg #1):

I am looking for a good game to play.  I am fairly committed with a good amount of time during the weekday to post, although weekends tend to be a bit hectic with kids.  I have played Champions from the original blue and white softback magazine/books through to the BBB.  Unfortunately my children have since destroyed my BBB and I don't have anyone nearby to play with, so I haven't replaced it.  So, if you want a player who can give good role-playing and writing with no book and an intimate knowledge of how the game works up through BBB and a twisted brain (I do math for fun which is what attracted me to Champions in the first place) but no books, I'm your man.

Re: Looking For Games
I am looking for a good, fun Champions game. ( a I'm also willing to try other genres of Hero games.) I only have the BBB and some old sourcebooks, but am willing to try to learn newer editions of the rules. PM me with a link to your game(s) please so i can check them out.

Re: Looking For Games
Anyone looking for a player who is still pretty new to HERO? I have tons of experience roleplaying, but HERO is... daunting to learn. I have no doubt once I get into it I will pick it up quick, but just need someone to help with the initial learning curve.

Would prefer a super hero game, with fantasy a close second.

Re: Looking For Games
I am considering running a champions superhero game. I have several six edition books. I have read the 2 volumes of 6e rules. I have two 6e champions source books. I have not run any 6e Champions yet, but have many years experience as a BBB champions gm and player. I have also not ever run a game on rpol, but played multiple campaigns.

Re: Looking For Games
Dieter, do you have an idea of points, style of play, and such? I would like to go ahead and start to try to slog through char creation - or at least get enough into it that I know what questions to be asking. :)

Re: Looking For Games
Well I would have to ask people what they want in a game/campaign and what power levels and point levels. So how about it? What type of game would you all be into and at what power levels and point  costs? Let me know and we can see if we can come up with something everyrone wants to play in.

Re: Looking For Games
In a pinch, I could run a solo 4th or 5th edition HERO game for you, PhantomStranger, but my take on superheroes is... not mainstream, to say the least.

I would, however, generally recommend starting at a lower point level rather than a high one, to leave plenty of room for character growth and developmnent.

Re: Looking For Games
Well, I would not turn down such, Manticore - and not mainstream can be cool, depending on what you mean. I have both the 5th and 6th Ed books, and while I know a lot changes between the two, I would think they are similar enough to not make learning one mean the other is off-limits. So shoot me what sort of game you would be interested in running, and we can go from there. Regardless where it goes from here, thanks for the offer!

Dieter: As for what kind of group game - I prefer adult games, just to allow for freedom of play as well as (in theory) more mature players. In terms of style - I am a huge fan of the Authority, being the heroes that defend the world from anything... but don't take s**t in the process (Jenny Sparks and Midnighter are two of my favorite characters of all time). I cannot speak to points and such, since I am just learning the system - so would leave that to you.

Re: Looking For Games
I would certainly GM a mature or adult game The Authority is cool as well. I like running world saving superhero games.

Re: Looking For Games
5th edition? I don't know of one here on RPOL at the moment... sorry.
