Thanks Graham, particularly for the Luke Crane rumour. That would be very interesting! –  Dave Hallett Nov 16 '10 at 21:38
    
oooh Luke Crane and Culture. Got a link? –  Sohum Nov 16 '10 at 23:33
    
Only the one I gave above. Hardly an announcement. –  Graham Nov 17 '10 at 0:01
    
The one you gave above just goes to his twitter stream. Is there a specific tweet you had in mind? –  Sohum Nov 17 '10 at 0:26

An unofficial Champions/Hero System adaptation has been done.

Its original website is missing, but it is archived at http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.sden.org/jdr/spaceopera/download/GB/IainBanks.pdf

as of this writing, the link works.

Nice find, thanks! Bit of an odd system choice in some ways (I would have thought a high crunch level was asking for trouble in such a hi-tech setting with huge scale) but I've saved a copy anyway, and who knows, someone else may find it ideal. –  Dave Hallett Nov 18 '10 at 16:12
    
Hero really isn't all that high-crunch, no worse than GURP or Traveller. It also has vehicle, base, and AI creation rules. The supplement adds no rules, just hows how to apply the extant ones. –  aramis Nov 18 '10 at 16:50
