HERO System 5th Edition Documents

  1. Sample Villain Nightfall 5e

    I needed a powerful extraterrestrial villain for an adventure. None of the published villains quite worked, so I wrote up my own.
     
    Nightfall operates at two different power levels. At his height, he can block sunlight from an entire world -- hence his name -- a tactic he uses to hold planetary populations for ransom. But he might not be able to maintain that level of power through a long fight, by which heroes with good tactics might defeat him.

  3. Sample Hero Gladiator 5e

    Here's a pdf of a 350-point starting superhero called Gladiator, ready to use as a PC or NPC hero in your games. He gained his powers from the Dynatron -- about which you can learn more in Shared Origins: the Dynatron, available for sale and download in the HERO Store. Consider Gladiator a free sample (though that supplement is written for Champions Complete).

  6. Science Fiction Slave Girl (Star Hero)

    Generic NPC for Star Hero Campaigns.
     
    The beautiful and scantily-clad slave girl is an old staple of science fiction in general, and space opera and science fantasy in particular; whether she’s the green-skinned courtesan of sleazy space traders or a captive princess being made to dance for a slug-like space gangster and his associates.
     
    UPDATE: Fixed some format problems.

  7. The Master List Of Limitations - A Resource For Hero System

    Years ago, Jack "Worldmaker" Butler maintained an online database resource for Hero gamers of Fourth and Fifth Edition, "The Master List of Limitations," with a huge number of original "Limitations," which under Sixth Edition are called "Complications," contributed to by many Herophiles. Mechanically and point-cost-wise those Limitations are practically identical to Complications. They're broken down into lists of Physical, Psychological, Social, and Distinctive Features.
     
    IIRC Worldmaker sadly passed away, and his original Master List website passed on as well. Other attempts to host it online also appear to have disappeared. But I saved the last version of the list in fully searchable HTML format, and am offering it here as a resource for Hero players who have difficulty coming up with different and interesting Complications for their characters.

  12. Writer's Guidelines - 5th Edition

    This is the 5th Edition Writer's Guidelines. I have found it handy as a baseline for creating documents. Not sure how it would/if it changed for 6th. This is not in any way meant to imply this is an official thing or whatever. I find it useful and thought other's might.

  13. 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.

  20. 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.

  22. 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.
