    HERO System newb...What books to buy?

    I have to admit, I think i actually like my 6E Vol 1/2 in the POD versions over the originals. While I really love the color in the originals, the POD versions are just so much lighter and I dont have to worry about them falling apart. To me, the PODs are a great investment. Take care, TB

    6th Edition Rulebook Errata

    You previously ruled that the Adding Damage example on 6E2 99 contained errata - but it wasn't included in the updated Errata file. Below is the link to the original post: Take care, TB

    Physical Books?

    I went down the same road about a year ago with the 6E. You can get the 6E2 directly form the Hero store but the 6E1 is the one that is hard to find. But fear not, you can find them if you are patient on Ebay for very good prices. I have been able to get 4x copies of 6E1 in great shape for about $40-50/each. It just takes time. But to tell you the truth, while I LOVE the full color of the 6E1/6E2, the weight of them is massive in my backpack. I also bought the POD versions of them and I have to admit, I actually prefer them. Yes they are in b/w, but they are much smaller in thickness and weight. Matter of fact, I have also bought all of the other 6E POD books from DriveThru and been thrilled with them. Unless you are a collector/completest, I wouldn't worry about trying to find physical copies and would just go get what I needed as POD. Can't say enough good things about them.

    What "Pulp" have you read lately ?

    Don't be embarrassed. I have been reading the Executioner off and on now for some 30 years. Every couple of years, I get the itch and have to go back and read a batch of them for fun. All total, I think I have 200+ Executioners and all of the Able Team and Phoenix Force lines. Now that I finished watching the Punisher series on Netflix, I think Mack Bolan might be calling me back yet again... Now, Doc Savage - I actually haven't read any of them - can someone give me an idea of what this line of books is like? Where would a newbie start?
  5. In the example of Adding Damage on 6E2 99 (at bottom of 2nd column), it states that the dagger is a HKA 1/2d6, Armor Piercing (+1/4) and that the GM has stated that you can’t more than double the DCs of the dagger. The example concludes by stating that the dagger’s damage is capped at 1d6+1. According to the reference tables on 6E2 101, it appears the doubled DC that is listed in the example is from the +0 column (from DC 2 at 1/2d6 doubled to DC 4 at 1d6+1). But wouldn’t the value come from the doubled DC under the +1/4 column since the dagger was listed as having Armor Piercing (+1/4)? Thus, shouldn’t the capped value be 1d6 instead? Or am I missing something here? Thanks, Todd B.

    Western Hero

    Is there any place where I can purchase Western Hero in a digital format? I have previously purchased tons of Hero System/Champions books in PDF but as far as I know, I have not run across the ability to purchase Western Hero. I tracked down a used copy off of Ebay but it is a good deal ratty and I would prefer to read it on my laptop if possible. I'm afraid I already know the answer to this but I just had to ask. Take care, TB
  7. Version 1.0


    The original file HS6E GM Screen 1 was created horizontally. Lots of people asked about a portrait edition. So I took that GM Screen and rebuilt it for a 8.5 x 11 layout. I did alter some of the included tables so it is not a direct replacement - but rather my own personal version.
