The Hero System is dead. There is nothing about it to talk about anymore. The company killed it dead.

I spoke to Michael Surbrook before he died. He had proposed and was ready to fund a new, simplified version of Champions. But the company wanted to charge him a $1000 licensing fee for the privilege. But then at the last minute, they pulled out and instead went with Ron Edwards to make Champions Now.

Michael Surbrook gave up on the Hero System. Called it a dead system. And he was working with Evil Beagle Games to make a bunch of his library of books to be compatible with Prowlers & Paragons. But that all fell apart when he died.

I've moved on,

They announced it a couple of weeks ago on TBP.

10 years ago before I quit Facebook, I had a dead friend's account that kept sending me stuff for Farmville and some Mafia game. I guess the licensing for those let's them keep pushing their stuff even through the dead.

That's....Ghoulish, I would say. They may not be literally harvesting the flesh of the dead to eat, but harvesting their social connections for advertising.
