HERO System: A Mildly Disturbing Realization

One of the guys I train kung fu with recently offered to run a Champions game. I haven't played Champions since I was in high school.

One thing that I realize now that strikes me as a bit odd:

In the HERO system, having a code against killing is considered a "Psychological Limitation."

Hmm.

  2. By the gods, you're right... I totally forgot about that.

    We totally threw down in that libarary.

    Nightcloak, Dr. Nightmare, and... I actually don't remember any of the other characters.

    You don't recall all the "Night Society" team of heroes? Nightfist? Nightlight? Nightengale? Nightcap? Night Dark?

    Not wanting to kill people is a very good attitude to have. Not killing somebody when it is your only hope to keep Aunt Petunia from getting cut-up and thrown out a window by Doctor Night is for sure a psycological problem. At least in my fairly tale world!
