  1. Variable Telekinetic Effect

    Whenever I read a thread like this, I feel like there should be a poll afterwards. You know, with all 8 suggested approaches and then get a pulse of which one HERO fans like the best.
  2. I cannot recount the last time I fired up my HERO brain and counted body... since the 5er days... Father, it's been 15 years since my last HERO session... Tonight I introduced my regular Sunday group to HERO 6e! We are starting with the Fantasy Complete for a handful of sessions (using the pre-gens and adventure/setting from FHC). After a few sessions we will create new characters and adventure for a few more sessions! Eventually, we are shifting to a sci-fi setting of my own creation for (what I intend/hope) will be a long-term campaign. I wanted us to get familiar before we jumped right in. I was touching up the characters to give them some equipment using Hero Designer, and I wanted the Elf Bard to have some Elven Chainmail. I grabbed the regular chain in the prefabs, changed the weight from 'full mass' to 'half mass' and viola! Magic armor. In a couple clicks. I like the Half-Elf Warrior Mage build! That is an ugly contender. I picked out my favorite 8 characters that I want to use for some convention games this year. I decided the Lizard-Folk Shaman knows how to turn into a giant snake (of several varieties) or a velociraptor (as a revered animal of his clan! - yes, he has a skull from one...). I just copied out the pages from the Bestiary for quick reference. This group didn't pick the shaman... . They went with Human Barbarian, Elf Bard, Sprite Druid, the Half-Elf Warrior-Mage, and I tossed in the Human archer as an NPC. I'm a little rusty... but it was fun and I'm certain this group will pick it up fast. I missed the speed chart. Seriously, I love how speed works. I also missed all the cool maneuvers and the in-play flexibility. One of the crew was looking through the book and exclaimed "you can use another character as a weapon"! I think he's sold. A couple of the GURPS people are still on the fence, but I'll win 'em over. .
  3. HERO System Skills - Missing or Bad Font?

    Thanks C-Note, that did the trick!
  4. HERO System Skills - Missing or Bad Font?

    I'll give that a shot.
  5. When I open my copy of HERO system skills in PDF in Adobe Reader, I'm getting an error; Cannot find or create the font "WPMultinationalARoman". Some characters may not display or print correctly. Can this font be embedded or replaced? Thanks,
  6. Is someone in Seattle in need of a Doctor?

    I am very interested in starting a new group around the HERO system. I'm interested in 6e. I have also GM'ed for 35+ years, so rotating duties would be superb! I live in Renton (East Highlands). Do you have a preference for location? I'm allergic to cats, so my options tend to be limited. I have a nice little area on my 2nd floor, but it can get warm in the summer. I would prefer a SAT game day, and I usually like to have more than 4 hours (maybe 6?). I have recently been playing some GURPS 4e, but I'm burned out on it. I like crunch, just want it in different areas. :-D I played and GM'ed a bunch of 5ER back in the day, but my HERO-fu has atrophied a tad. I have a pile of 6e books on digits, all the software, and a handful of print books. So, I am ramping back up quickly...
  7. Michael Surbrook's Ghosts, Ghouls, and Golems is Live!

    Looking forward to this!
  8. newb dm: where are all the premade monsters?

    How about this, tell us what kind of monsters you might want to populate in your dungeon, and then we can post our templates here for you to use! I'm currently polishing up my chops on HERO 6e, so I would love the chance to get my hands dirty. :-D P.S. I'm not a complete newb, I played and GM'ed the heck out of 5th edition revised (the previous version) - also I've been reading through the 6e set and I have HERO Designer, so the stuff I post shouldn't be "all broken and new" :-P
  9. Problems With Fantasy Hero Complete and Newbies

    Agreed! This is wonderful. I prefer to use the "subtract roll to determine DCV hit" method, but this is a very accessible summary.
  10. Problems With Fantasy Hero Complete and Newbies

    This is exactly how I want to make some "introductory" products. Fantastic idea. The powers/spells are listed with a point cost, how they work, and END cost. Then you put the full builds in an appendix. Races, "Classes", Cultures could all be handled the same way. A little obfuscation of the full toolkit would go a long ways to lessening any fears about playing it. After all, the full system seems better to be sold to "builders" anyways. Once people get used to playing, they will want to dig in and create custom spells and powers at some point, and we have the toolkit that supports it. Best of both worlds IMHO.
  11. Hello, my name is Trentin and it's been WAY too long since I've played Hero... :-D I played the heck out of 5er, been a fan for a long time. Revisiting the 6th edition and really liking what I'm seeing. I'm hoping to create some digital tools for the game, and some adventure frameworks for "pick up and play". First I need to immerse myself in the game again and start GMing it. Looking forward to more discussions with the fans!
