  1. Hero System Rules FAQ

    One of the great perks of being a Hero System gamer and member of this forum community, is that we're able to ask rules questions of the guy who wrote the rules, Steven S. Long, and get a prompt reply. In the past Hero Games has compiled these very exhaustive rules questions into a FAQ, viewable on the website as a webpage, and later as a downloadable PDF. Several years ago Hero Games management redesigned the website, and according to Jason Walters, decided at that time not to include the FAQ. But since I still frequently see Hero fans asking rules questions on these forums, there's obviously still a demand for info like this. So I decided to upload my own copies of the rules FAQ. Jason has approved of this.
     
    Here you'll find three separate PDFs, each with rules questions relevant to one edition of the Hero System: the original Fifth Edition (updated until 2004); Fifth Edition, Revised (updated 2005); and also a more abbreviated FAQ for Sixth Edition (as of 2010). I hope you find these helpful.

  4. 5th ed Fillable Character Sheet

    This is an editable character sheet for 5th edition, built in Excel to resemble the original sheet in form and function as much as possible. There are a few calculated values built into the sheet, which are protected, but it still allows for most areas to be edited by the user.

  8. Minion Control Sheet

    This is the same as the bottom of the minion control sheet from the Resource Pack, but ONLY the stun/end/body portion, blown up to full sheet size. I usually have the minions sheets printed out from HERO Designer, but I use this sheet to keep up with their stun/body; I don't need the top portion of the normal minion control sheet where you put in all of their other stats.

    My custom Fantasy Hero weapons list. It's a work in progress, and relies on a few house rules and/or custom definitions, not all of them obvious, but the math is in the hidden columns. Private message any questions, and post reviews.

  10. All God's Children - Psi World

    Years ago I was inspired by an old game called Psi World (http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/897/Psi-World?it=1) to try to convert it to Hero System (5th edition) using some of the optional rules from the Ultimate Mentalist book and customized Hero Designer character template and export format which are in the Hero Games Downloads site in the Hero Designer areas.
     
    This PDF is the original campaign description as it appeared on Hero Central along with a couple of story threads. Unfortunately I did not get far with the game once we began play due to some real life that I had to deal with instead.
