Right off the bat, I have to say that I absolutely agree: MMOs have an incredible amount to learn from Champions. I think it was a stroke of absolute genius for Cryptic to hook up with Champions.

Champions was an MMO character creation system long before there were any MMOs. This guy, Steve Long, has been thinking about how to make an MMO universe work, consistent and balanced, since before Ultima Online was a twinkle in Origin System's eye.

See that big old blue book right in the middle of the picture there? I've got that book in my library right now, except mine is torn up, used and abused from years of hard use.

I haven't played Champions in a loooooooooong time, but I remember the incredible excellence and balance of the system as the best superhero genesis method that has ever been laid down on paper.
