Post War Heroes Update
on: November 29, 2016, 22:19

At present, there are roughly: 50 major characters (full character sheet, artwork and background info, tactics, and personality), 50 minor characters (stats & abilities but no artwork and minimal background info), 44 vehicles (artwork and a full character sheet), and 10 maps. The major character artwork is finished. Scott Sackett (http://www.scottsackett.org/), who is doing a great job creating the artwork, is currently working on the vehicles.

I’m still waiting for Jeff to finish the rules. When he does, I’ll have to go back over the characters’ abilities and the vehicle write-ups to make sure they conform to whatever changes are made -- and I still have some work to do to finish various characters.

Listed below are notes from the last two revisions of War Heroes:
• Revised Damaging Propulsion
• Removed Components rules
• Added No Counterblast modifier
• Updated & revised Robotic Body
• Added Psychic Barrier to new abilities section
• Added Partial Coverage as vehicle weakness
• Added Luck to commando random generation table
• Adjusted Iron Will cost table
• Updated/revised Stalls vehicle weakness
• Added “service ceiling” rules for winged flight vehicles
• Added radio transmitter/receiver to vehicle equipment
• Added section about racism/sexism
• Updated possession power level/save chart
• First pass for info about other dimensions, including: Avalon, Reichworld, Shadow Realm, and Sub-Quantum Universe
• Added stats for Beast Brigade members
• First pass on Mafia organization
• Finalized the Military Mission sections

Thanks for the shoutout Brian! I've been a V&V player since Jr high (in the late 70s) and I grew up as a big fan of Jeff's art. I still can't believe I am working on something that meant so much to me as a kid!

Brian is in the unenviable position of having to keep updating his book as Jack and I finish up the rules. He's doing a great job. We've also got the artwork for the War Heroes book in from artist Scott Sackett, and we'll try to post some of that for you all to see in the next few days.
