Hero Games is proud to present the first adventure for Fantasy Hero by Kestrel Arts: The Lost Castle! Long ago a mad king built a fantastic complex to survive in case of disaster beneath his castle.

New Product: Spells of the Devachan PDF

Apr 11 2014 11:04 PM | in Store Item News

SUPER SORCERY GOES GALACTIC
Earth is not the only world with mystics and magic. Spells of the Devachan reveals a wider cosmos of spirits and sorcery:

• More than 30 spells of thaumaturgy, the light-show magic used by comic-book super-mages. Most are new. A few spells from past HERO System publications are revised for 6th Edition.

• A new setting and background for thaumaturgy. Mystics of many worlds join the occult society called the Devachan, ready to become allies and mentors for human super-mages.

• A new treatment of astral projection and the Astral Plane, the mystic dimension that connects all worlds and realms of existence — now revised for 6th Edition and expanded to include interstellar travel.

• Plus glimpses into the spirit realms of several alien species, with wonders and perils of their own.

Welcome to the Sorcerer’s Galaxy — because one Mystic World isn’t enough.

Uses the 6th Edition of the HERO System.

Blackwyrm Update: Ghosts, Ghouls, and Golems in...

Mar 20 2014 11:51 AM | in Store Item News

Not content to rest after completing Larger Than Life, Michael Surbrook has just finished up Ghosts, Ghouls, and Golems. This HERO System sourcebook for the supernatural covers all the classic creatures: ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and zombies; but also mentions ghuls, golems, the wendigo, Jack the Ripper, and a few modern monsters, such as the internet meme Slender Man. Each chapter covers a specific creature in detail, looking at its origins, history accounts, and world-wide representation. This is followed up by several character sheets, often present a ’traditional’ and ‘cinematic’ version of the creature, as well as a more detailed unique representation (the section on vampires, for example, presents Count Dracula in all his glory!).

Blackwyrm Update: Fistful of Fu Being Written

Mar 04 2014 07:10 PM | in Store Item News

As the name suggests, this upcoming book by Michael Surbrook will be a collection of martial artists. They will be divided by power level (Real World, Cinematic, and so on), and will represent a wide range of cultures and fighting styles. Although most meant for Ninja Hero campaigns, the characters in FOF can also be used in other genres as well, such as Fantasy Hero, Pulp Hero, Dark Champions, Champions, and Galactic Champions. And if that’s not enough, the book will also contain write ups of various fictional fighting styles.

RIP Aaron Allston

Feb 28 2014 11:10 PM | in HERO System News

Like many of you, I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of author and game designer Aaron Allston, who collapsed yesterday during an appearance at VisionCon in Springfield, Missouri and died shortly thereafter. His death effects me on both a personal and professional level. On a personal level, he a gentleman in the literal sense of the word: a gentle-man with whom it was always a pleasure to speak. I also admired his work: The Circle/M.E.T.E. Was one of my favorite roleplaying supplements as a teenager, and I also fondly remember Autoduel Champions. (I mean: who doesn't? It ruled.) On a professional level, as the current president of Hero Games I mourn the loss of one of the creative giants of the Hero System and a driving force behind the modern versions of Champions.

So so long Aaron: see you in the great dealer's room in the sky. I can't wait to hear about your current projects when I get there.

Jason Walters, President Hero Games
