Reprint HERO System 6th Edition Core Books ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I know that we would be many to back for a reprint of HERO System 6th Edition Core Books 1 & 2 (modified to include the errata).

 

Why not do a project like that with maybe the Basic Rules and other books as bonus if the crowd-funding sky rockets :) ?

 

No ?

No - though they are all available through One Books Shelf (RPGNow, DriveThruRPG, etc etc) in the form of print-on-demand. So you *can* get physical copies if you need them.

 

Hero Games is more interested in doing shorter, rules-inclusive books like Champions Complete and Fantasy Hero Complete these days, and also supporting our small but productive community of third party publishers. In fact, we will have some news on that front to announce shortly!

It's my understanding that that's supposed to be changing.  The previous file had the colored text in the index converted to black and white incorrectly, so that the index entries weren't visible in the finished product.  I think that's being worked on, but I couldn't tell you when it's supposed to be finished.

It was supposed to have been finished more than 7 months ago, since Jason's post was written in the present (not future) tense, at the time (which was Dec 8, 2017).

 

Specifically:

I wonder if a kickstarter for the big blue books would generate enough interest (assuming the errata was in the big blue books)?

I'd like to see a Star Hero Complete and an Action Hero Complete.

I think Star Hero would be more likely but considering that Fantasy Hero Complete I think didn’t do so well, I think it’s highly unlikely.

As someone who had Fantasy Hero Complete at one point, the finished product was not that impressive, so you're probably correct in the idea that it didn't fare that well in terms of sales. The graphic design and interior art were disappointing to where they were major detractors that resulted in various negative comments being posted about it in game forums. The Fantasy Hero 6th Edition source book had a beautiful design and unique font-styled titled, yet Fantasy Hero Complete had a generic font title with cover art that was confusing (attempt at satire, maybe?) and was a significant step backwards from both 6th and 5th Edition Fantasy Hero source books.

 

A concern I have is the latest Kickstarter project, Champions Now, intended to re-energize 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Editions of Champions, will result in something as graphically regrettable as Fantasy Hero Complete was cover to cover, further reducing the chances of a quality Star Hero Complete being produced later due to lackluster sales.
