Read what others are saying about San Angelo: City of Heroes...
"I keep getting requests for an Astro City RPG; we're not planning to do one - but I think any Astro City fans who want such a game should at least try out San Angelo. It's an intricate, involving, well-realized gaming wrld, and the emphasis on the reality of the surroundings and the humanity of the characters may make it just what they're looking for."
"San Angelo isn't just a pretty city map and a bit of history. It is a fully realized hometown..."
"...one of the best RPG cities in print. Every facet of the city gets a look from its historical pulp era (whee!) to its high-tech aerospace industry. ...you name it, it's in here."
"As a supplement to Champions however, it's a shining gem, and any fan of the game should check it out."
"...well-organized and laid out, with plenty of acceptable art, amps, and etc. Grade: A."
"There is so much information here, maybe too much. Too much to use, too much to ignore, it is 'someone else's campaign' and a large well planned out one at that."
"Gamemasters and players owe it to themselves to pick up this book and experience the City of Heroes for themselves."
"If you have even the slightest interest in superhero roleplaying, buy this book."
"...the very model of the superheroic city book."
"Best Game Supplement [at GenCon '98]: San Angelo: City of Heroes by Gold Rush."
"San Angelo takes the standard set by Steve Long's Hudson City in Justice, Not Law, and improves upon it. It's a well written, well thought out universe."
"This is the best-organized RPG supplement I have ever read."
"It far surpassed my expectations. It is quite possibly the best campaign setting I've ever read -
for any system."
"If you play Champions and you don't have this book, run out and buy it...your Champions library is poorer for its absence. It's...one of the top five books ever published for Champions."
"It is extremely well written, very thorough, and true to the 4-color campaign."
"...it was the detail and care that you brought to the city, and the NPCs. I really wanted to read about these folks in a comic book! I was blown away."
"What sets San Angelo above the other settings books out there is that it is chock full of normal people, places and things. The San Angelo series is definitely a must have for any superhero game."
"San Angelo, from GRG, has the only city sourcebook that actually feels like a city that has actually had to live with super-powered people and events. The flavor text alone is priceless!"
"San Angelo is the best city description out there. If you could visualize a cross between the political intrigue of Ultraverse and the detailed history of Astro City, you have a sense of the underlying San Angelo flavor."
"The San Angelo series is definitely a must have for any superhero game."
