RPG News: Champions -- The Live-Action Roleplaying Game

Ah yes, Champions: The Live-Action Roleplaying Game. The what?

I was just checking out the new list of stuff on 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:

  • 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!
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!

Could this be a lite version of the Hero System rules at last?


That's my side of things. Let me know what you think, my friend.
