In 2013, when the world needed heroes, you answered the call. You and your allies were all that stood between light and darkness, good and evil, right and wrong.

“P&P is a smashing amount of superheroic fun that I’ve enjoyed playing. And did I mention fistfuls of dice? If you like a game that’s fast-moving and gives you the feel of your favorite comic-book heroes, P&P delivers. “
~Steve Peterson, co-designer of Champions
“I really had a fine time with the playtest. It offers a really interesting balance between flexibility and customization for character creation. And it is rich in detail without feeling like a miniatures game for combat. The highest compliment I can pay is that if we were designing Champions today, there are several ideas I’d have liked to steal wholesale.”
~Ray Greer, writer & designer for Hero Games, Steve Jackson Games, and many others
