Does Battlegrounds work well with HERO system? How does it deal with items like NND (No Normal Defense)?

It should, particularly with the turn sequencing mechanics. But I'm not familiar with NND. Can you describe what that entails?

NND Attacks

What this essentially means is that unless you have a specific defense against this type of attack you take all the damage.

NND Radiation - you would need to a life support defense against radiation.

NND Gas attack - you would have to have gas masks or equivolent life support defense to defend against. In this case if you have the Defense you take NO damage.

Typically, with NND damage you either have the special defense and take no damage or the special defense works like armor limiting damage.

There's nothing in BRPG to deal with things like that. You are expected to deal with it the same way you would at a live face-to-face RP game session. If damage does not apply due to some form of protection, simply don't apply the damage to the character.

This forum thread might be of interest to you. This one, too. In fact, there are a fair number of posts and threads about your game system of choice here. Just do a forum search for "Hero system" and/or "Champions".
