I just got my copy of Becoming Heroes directly from the authors at Transneptune Games here in Boulder, Colorado.

It’s amazing how it challenged many of my preconceptions about what should and shouldn’t work in a RPG and how the mechanics are designed to build escalating dramatic tension around conflicts. One of the most novel mechanics is the ability to modify another character’s sheet in certain ways when you win a conflict.. you don’t have an explicit damage system, but I never felt like I wasn’t risking anything, quite the opposite!
