A Superhero sourcebook for the United Kingdom. Based on the scenarios of THE British Superhero game of the mid 80’s.

Back in the day, there was a superhero RPG published in the UK. It was originally an A5 printed booklet, then a box set with two supplements, a couple of boxes of lead figures, some articles and scenarios in a certain gaming magazines. Its name is own by a third party so cannot be mentioned, let’s just say some of the Heroes were Golden

Well that was 30 years ago, and we still have a soft spot for the original game. Which is where Legacy comes in. [Redacted]* was a superhero game set in the UK, what Legacy does is, to take those original scenarios and articles, update and expand on them and create a coherent universe, where the UK is the predominated place for superheroes.

These are the old scenarios used to create a universe for British Heroes.

Crossfire (an Alien Exchange) Legacy of Eagles
Queen Victoria and the Holy Grail
The Lancelot Caper (unpublished)
American Dream
Peking Duck
Pilcomayo Project
Contagion, Coincidence & Confusion

The goal for this project is get enough money to pay for proofreading and editing. Nothing too ambitious. Nice and simple.

This is Legacy, a sourcebook for roleplaying superheroes on the streets on the streets of the UK. The book which currently stands at 140 pages will have background material on why some people are superpowered and other aren’t, it will have details of various Villains old and new, there is an origin scenario which is an update of the Pilcomayo Project.

The book will also contain: stuff on Time Travel, parallel dimensions, the source of both magic and superpowers, there is a chapter America, the EAGLES (from Legacy of EAGLES), a vast array of background information , The book also includes a century of Heroes, a year by year almanac of heroes since 1900. And details of the Official British superhero teams since 1899. Including the Queens own Shadow V.
All in all, it is everything you might need to run a superhero adventure in the United Kingdom.

This Sceptered Isle has called. Its time to talc up the spandex and get pledging:

Looks like I picked the wrong week to give up sniffing glue (and backing kickstarters)

I loved Golden Heroes BITD. I won a copy from White Dwarf and had some great times playing it.
