Guidance on Hearts & Souls RPG?


Heard about Hearts & Souls on the latest Gauntlet Podcast and picked it up. So far I like the premise a great deal. Want to run a supers game that is less crunchy than Champions/Hero Systems.

I am a little confused as to how some things like character creation works. It seems to be: just have an idea and flesh it out with your GM (or Editor as the game calls it). Is this correct? There isn’t a more structured method? Guidance for how many attributes should be ordinary, human, superhuman, exceptional, etc… Tried looking up reviews or playthroughs but “Hearts and Souls” gets a lot of results that are not related to the RPG at all.

BTW the version I picked up is this one from Drivethru RPG:

Is that the correct/latest version?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Yup, that’s how it works. Just come up with a concept that fits in the frame of the comic and assign mechanics as you see fit, working with the GM.

That is the latest version, yes.
