Those of you that missed out on the Kickstarter to fund the new edition of Aaron Allston's seminal Strike Force supplement (Shame on you!) can now pick up the PDF from Hero Games for $20.
If you're thinking of running a supers game, then this is the one book you must have in your library.
The Hero Games' site describes Strike Force as follows:
A superhero setting like no other. A role-playing game campaign book that includes techniques and lessons from over 22 years of play. A tribute to one of the greatest creators in the RPG industry, created using Champions 6th Edition.Buying the PDF of Strike Force also gets you character write-ups using both the ICONS and Mutants & Masterminds systems.
In 1988, Aaron Allston released Strike Force, a supplement detailing the first eight years of his superhero campaign. Noted for its extensive and highly-influential advice to gamemasters on how to run a long-term campaign, Strike Force was a landmark RPG publication.
We have now released an updated version of this classic book for the 21st Century. Aaron himself was designing this new edition of Strike Force before his untimely death, and we wanted to bring his work to life as a monument to Aaron's lasting influence on the RPG hobby.
This updated Strike Force sourcebook includes never-before-seen material detailing Aaron's multiversal superhero setting, compelling characters and villains, and updated and expanded advice from Superhero RPG veterans like Steve Kenson and Sean Patrick Fannon for how to run a campaign using "the Strike Force method."
