Hello Hurrah let the show begin

Hi all welcome to the Heropress community.

If you'll forgive me I'd like to open with a brief history of the rl side of Heropress so we can all see how things fit together.

Heropress started life as a diceless SuperHero system devised by a group of friends in Royal Wells (Kent, England, UK).

As they drifted apart due to other commitments it became a pbm. As it became more widely known and popular more people joined it and the original DM became swamped. So players where gathered into other areas run by other dm's usually on a geographic basis.

This got too big and collapsed under it's own weight.

The concept was ressurected by a magazine called Fantasia who acted as a focal point, posted updates in it's pages and paid the DM's (don't expect that to happen again real soon)

This worked really well until Fantasia committed financial suicide.

Smaller groups picked up the game concept (including a very Gothic World of Darkness crew that operated out of Cardiff for a while).

And that brings us to here.

What I want to do is pull it back to it's 3rd period concept with multiple DM's looking after a city or country each with a group of players.

The updates from each area would be posted in a central location for the amusement of the curious as would FAQ, Articles, Artwork and anything else of interest.

Players would create a character and be put in the early days into whichever city suits themselves, the character and the DM best.

I've sketched out a pretty limited timeline which I'd like the other DM's to contribute to before go live so everyone has a piece of this from the foundation.

So any takers.
