Indiemeet people who are obsessed with superhero RPGs (okay just me) might be interested in the resurrection of early Champions that Ron Edwards and Hero Games are doing via Kickstarter. You can see him being asked questions about it by Brie Sheldon here.

The Kickstarter is here

Hi! After a long absence to have a kid, I'll be finally coming back to Indiemeet to play! For the Feb Saturday meetup first session, I'll be bringing the classic indie game Inspectres (it's like Ghostbusters the rpg). As my time is a lot more straitened than before I would really like to make sure that I have the minimum players to run the game. If you want to play Inspectres and will be coming to this meetup then please reply below.

Anyone among you tried the Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen?

In case anyone is interested in playing over Skype, Ron Edwards (quite indie) is proposing to run D&D 4e (maybe not quite so indie but with his spin on it) in European timezone friendly time.

This is partly linking to his new online talking actual play site and he would be recording the sessions, posting them online and probably discussing them at Adept Play.

It would likely be something like this: or check out Ron's Patreon - weird races, psionic powers, psychedelia and metal album covers with brutal, strategic fighting which 4e does well.

If this sound like something you would be excited about we are still looking for players, let me know and I'll put you in touch with Ron.
