  1. Site Upgrade

    Congratulations on getting it all up and going, Dan! What a process! I'm curious if the new upgrade will help things going forward for you? (As in, maybe the next upgrade you do will be easier now?)
  2. favicon

    Did this not work properly? Did I not create it correctly? Just let me know; I'll see what I can do to resolve it!
  3. Attack powers that don't require an attack roll.

    I would build any spell like this with Area of Effect Accurate, No Range Modifier, and a +10 (or so) OCV bonus. Then you can use the Absolute Effect Rule to say that the attack always hits, so there is no need to roll.
  4. I kind of wish we could have a small Kickstarter to get the Ultimate Vehicle published for 6th edition... at least in PDF.
  5. This exists in Star Hero 5th edition, exactly as described. It did not seem to survive the move to Star Hero 6E. I suppose this was planned for Hero System Vehicles 6E, but that was never made?
  6. newb dm: where are all the premade monsters?

    Which Hero book(s) are you using for the campaign? Which edition (6th, 5th)? For a lot of the monsters, we tend to use the ones that are in the Bestiary: http://www.herogames.com/forums/store/product/78-the-hero-system-bestiary-pdf/ because that book has a ton of monsters in it already. I know you don't want to pay for it yet, but I have to plug it a bit. I think that's why you don't see a lot of monster write-ups. Also, I don't think Fantasy Hero campaigns are typically played in the same vein as a D&D dungeon crawl, so that might be another reason not to have a lot of monsters all ready to go. Actually, I have no data to back that up, but that's the sense I have of the community.
  7. Tuala Morn is similar to the Turakian Age. Lots of characters/monsters and spells that are unique to that world. The same with the Atlantean Age. The book that seems like it would be the easiest to update is the Valdorian Age. I believe there are only about 31 spells, some Templates, a dozen character sheets, and a dozen or so Fighting Tricks that would need to be updated. Plus you'd have to update how Sorcery is constructed.
  8. Looking at the Turakian Age as an example, it would be updating: Racial Templates (a.k.a. Package Deals) (~15) Characters in the margins in the Realms of Ambrethel chapter (~23), plus a few more Templates Professional Templates (~21) Paladin Powers (~11) Spells and Enchanted Items (~132!!) Enemies, Allies, and Monsters full characters (~13) References to 5E products The spells alone are about 12.5% pages of the book. Of course, there are other fiddly parts that might need to be tweaked that this list doesn't cover. Probably not very much, but I'm sure they are there.
  9. I strongly considered including this setting in my list, but I figured that it would be even more of a stretch to see it "updated" for 6th edition. It was published before DOJ owned Hero and before the new wave of material for 5th edition.
  10. I don't know if a poll for this has been done previously or not. I am curious about 5th Edition Fantasy Hero settings that were produced by Hero Games instead of third-party settings. Obviously, I am not from Hero Games, so this is just a "wish" poll more than anything. You can select one or more of your favorite Hero fantasy settings that you would like to see updated for 6th edition (in at least a PDF format).
  11. Looking For Input On Potential New Fantasy Product

    Maybe one of the mods could unpin this thread? Mods?
  12. favicon

    Since the favicon.ico used for these boards is still the 5th edition logo, I thought I would make a new favicon.ico for 6th edition. I believe Dan would probably need to put it on the webserver. Here you go! Just thought I'd contribute a little something. favicon.ico
  13. How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? "Jhaierr" is the name of a character from a fantasy world created by myself and a friend. He is a panther-like warrior prince of the feline humanoid race. What was the first tabletop RPG you played? Middle Earth Role-Playing (MERP) What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? Middle Earth Role-Playing (MERP) - In fact, I began as a GM. What are you currently playing/GMing? Nothing, unfortunately. I was most recently GMing a superhero Champions 6E game online with friends, but I had to put it on hold during my internship and while I finish the last year of grad school.

    Fixed! Sorry.
