    Hero Builder’s Handbook??

    Does anyone know what this book was supposed to be? It wasn't the champions of the heroic tier book renamed was it? I really hope not. I really want that book.

    Thanks

    I don't think they're the same book.

    Sure it's dead, but what was it? If it was going to be an awesome book of awesome awesomeness, then I'm pissed it was canceled. If it was going to be a sucky book of sucking suckyness, then I'm glad it's gone.

    The other two books that were pulled, we mostly know what they were going to be. But what about this one?

    OK, I probably misread the OP. I actually haven't heard anything recent about Champions of the Heroic Tier. When it was announced at GenCon it was indeed something separate from Hero Builder's Handbook.

    I thought it was a 'build your own classes' type of kit.

    I think darjr is right, a behind the numbers build your own kind of thing.

    Champions of the Herioc Tier is another book. It is supposed to have themes, non-adventuring skills, other stuff. This was not dropped, but it hasn't really been confirmed in a while. I think it is not on the WotC product page but still on amazon.

    Critical Hits reported from the GenCon seminar:

    Hero Builder's Handbook. Aimed at players who want to tinker and build something detailed with your character.

    Player's Handbook: Champions of the Heroic Tier. Introduces themes for core D&D. New options, feats. Non-combat options like Blacksmith.
