So, having played Online for a bit, I decided to check out a torrent of the tabletop game manuals, with the intention of buying and playing in future if it interests me.
And, much like how D&D blew my mind briefly a few years ago, so did this. But even more so because we've gotten to know the characters.
And thus... I am left weak by the manuals and their higher level of awesome than the online game.
Firstly... Witchcraft isn't a D cup! Or doesn't appear to be. I'm not sure why, but that makes me happy.
Also... Nighthawk is awesome! He's like Batman except not.
Defender! He's... ... Okay, that is the derpiest power armour I have ever seen. That's all I can think when looking at it: 'derp'. However, it is interesting to look at his backstory properly rather than snippets in the game...
Also... Details for Socrates. Stats. This is good. There may be a Socrates clone entering Champions soon, a robot body for the AI, perhaps.
And he will be.. ACCURATE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TO THE SOURCE MATERIAL!
*is now thinking of buying all these books when I get my loan, even if I wasn't interested in Champions lore and abiltiies, I'd buy at least one to get how a tabletop system can work with a 6d, rather than the absurdly confuddling bigger dices of other games.*
This post isn't really going anywhere, but I had to post something since I've been reading these tomes of awesome.
