About This File

This export format is used to translate a Hero Designer character into a plain text file, which may be imported into a Roll20 HeroSystem6eHeroic character sheet using the API script HeroSystem6eHeroic_HDImporter.


One of the challenges of running a Hero game in Roll20 is the time required to prepare pre-gen characters, NPCs, and monsters within Roll20. The importer was tested with more than a hundred characters and monsters from Dead Orc Pass, Kazei 5, and Monster Hunter International. Many more should work, although the HeroSystem6eHeroic sheet is currently limited to ten powers.


Basic steps:

1) Export a character from Hero Designer using HeroSystem6eHeroic.hde.

2) Open the text file in a text editor.

3) Copy all of the text (use cmd-A or ctrl-A).

4) Paste the text into the Roll20 chat window of a HeroSystem6eHeroic campaign, which has been configured to use HeroSystem6eHeroic_HDImporter.

5) Hit enter. The script should provide notification of success and the character will appear along with other characters. 

6) Optionally, if the Hero Designer file included an avatar image this will be exported separately. You may import the image via the 'Edit' button at the top of the character window in the usual way. The avatar will appear on the character sheet. For best results use images with dimensions of 250x250 pixels.


Note that use of the Roll20 API requires a Pro-level subscription.


For more information please see the HeroSystem6eHeroic_HDImporter documentation, script, and sample files located at its GitHub site.
