GameStorming: Heroes Unlimited + Shadow of the Demon Lord


While my first RPG was Champions 4th Edition, I have always had a place in my heart for Palladium Games' Heroes Unlimited. Sadly, I'm not a big fan of the system and as young gamer, wasn't prepared to fill in the gaps that were missing.

However, I'm exploring the idea of plugging in Shadow of the Demon Lord's skill system for HU's skills.

For those not familiar, SotDL's skill system assumes the difficulty of a task is 10 on a d20 roll. You add the appropriate ability modifier. If the task harder than normal you add a Bane (1 or more d6's that the highest roll subtracts from the d20 roll). If the task is easier than normal you add a Boon (1 or more d6's that the highest roll adds to the d20 roll). Finally, Banes and Boons cancel each other out.

I'm pretty excited about this and hope it works.

HU is a lot like early d&d in that is ad hoc and inelegant but it works. Still not my choice of systems but it is very charming.
