Ah yes, Champions: The Live-Action Roleplaying Game. The what?
I was just checking out the new list of stuff on RPGNow.com when I stumbled upon this familiar RPG name some how combined with LARP words, and had to do a double take.
Here's the product blurb:
Champions: The Live Action Roleplaying Game brings the excitement of superheroic adventure to the world of LARPs! Using the popular Champions Universe setting from the award-winning tabletop RPG and the Champions Online MMO, Champions: Live Action gives you all the pulse-pounding adventure while allowing you to play away from the table or computer. The groundbreaking PCD system uses a simple stopwatch as a randomizer so the action never has to slow down!
This book includes:
So bust out your uniform, strap on your utility belt, and get ready to smash some evil, because it’s time to play Champions: Live Action!
- The complete rules for playing the game - nothing else needed!
- Dozens of sample characters, including the Champions themselves and several of their most fiendish adversaries!
- An introduction to the Champions Universe, including Millennium City, the City of Tomorrow built on the ashes of Detroit!
- Extensive advice for how to LARP in a world of superheroes and supervillains, even if you’ve never LARPed before! Costumes, props, locations, and how to recruit and manage players!
Could this be a lite version of the Hero System rules at last?
