The Hero System Bestiary for 6th edition just made it into the store. For those unfamiliar, this is essentially a Monster Manual for use with the Hero System - aka Champions.

I'll give you the outline of the book's organization so you can get a taste of what it offers.

I. Creatures in Your Game
~ This first 50-page section defines "creatures," their role in various campaigns, gives rules for their creation in the Hero System, details templates for creatures and humans (essentially classes), and special rules for creatures in combat.

II. Monsters and Fantastic Creatures
~ This section offers Hero System stats for a variety of familar creatures, including dragons, demons, lycantrhopes, hippogriffs, golems, qliphothic hunters, elementals, djinns, and a load of other familar types.

III. Humanoid Monsters
~ Here there be giants, trolls, nymphs, minotaurs, mer-folk, undead, and more.

IV. Monsters From Around the World
~ Subsections here detail Celtic monsters, Chinese monsters, Japanese monsters, Indian monsters, and other Asian countries. Leprechauns, firbolg, redcaps, qiongqi, oni, kitsunes, nagas, and Filipino ghouls abound.

V. Science Fiction, Horror, and Movie Monsters
~ Animal Men, Giant Dinosaurs, Engines of Destruction, Hunter-Seeker Robots, Slashers, and Giant Apes are included here, amongst others. Look out.

VI. Mundane Beasts
~ An extensive set of stats are included for the mundane creatures like horses, camels, deer, dinosaurs, whales, and swarms of stinging insects.

Why bother trying to work out the stats for a gorilla in a zoo, King Kong, unicorns, the Terminator, or Orcus when this book has done all the work for you?

Would anyone want to play Champions? I've been thinking about playing ,but at $45 a book I've been skeptical on buying it if no one will play.

PLEASE return a message under my post if you want to play.
