HERO System Champions

HERO System on Roll20

HERO System


About the adventure

Explore the massive universe of the Champions Universe as the world's newest heroes. Battle villains, rescue civilians, and uncover fiendish plots as you save the world! This game features the immense options of the HERO System and pairs it with the original campaign setting it was meant to be paired with: the Champions Universe. Champions has nearly 40 years of publishing history and has been converted to an award-winning MMO. The characters, relationships, teams, and world of Champions has nearly as much history as the major comic book publishers. Telling stories in this world means that players get the opportunity to engage with this history and change the future! The play style will very much revolve around storytelling and character development. Some might see the ongoing history of the CU as a detriment, but the stories of players will always be priority. This means anything can happen!
