Hero Games will be launching a fan-driven community content program on DriveThruRPG in about a month, similar to Dungeon Masters Guild and Storytellers Vault. It’s going to be called Hall of Champions, and it will allow you to publish your own work on DriveThru for profit under the banner of being a Hero Games product. (Though solely for commercial purposes on DriveThruRPG.) You’ll be allowed to publish using any version of the Hero System you like from 1st to 6th, including Champions Now. You will also be allowed to use both intellectual property that belongs to Hero Games, as well as the Champions Universe, which belongs to Cryptic Studios. The program will supply artwork and templates to work from to make the entire process as easy as possible.
To being with, what I’m looking for are some initial fan contributions from you guys so that we have a certain number of products ready to go at launch. I’ve already received commitments from two of our third party publishers, but could use a bunch more from fans. There are (of course) significant rules governing the community content program, which I will share with you should you contact me. If you have work you would like to contribute, it needs only be in PDF form and have a JPEG cover image available. (This can simply be a copy of the front page.)
Thank you as always for playing the Hero System, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to The Evermist Forest; an original world setting for Fantasy Hero campaigns and adventures. Here players will need to balance the risk of a painful death against the chance of attaining mythical treasures and unearthing the secrets of this mist-filled forest.
The challenges of traveling through the Evermist, both the frustrating magical elements of the mist itself and the horde of terrible beasts that dwell there, should be more than enough for new players and veterans alike.
The forest is home to a whole catalog of dangers for the players to hack apart or flee sobbing from. Here you’ll find blood thirsty beasts, tribes of cannibal creatures, carnivorous shrubs, shambling hordes of undead, wandering constructs, and cursed warriors that stalk the night.
Evermist presents a 178 page prebuilt fantasy setting for use with Fantasy Hero of the Hero System 6th Edition. This write-up is not a complete game by itself. So to use it to the full intended extent, Game Masters should acquire copies of Hero System’s core rule books. Either HERO System 6th Edition Volumes 1 and 2, the Hero Systems Basic Rulebook, or Fantasy Hero Complete will provide the base rules and game mechanics.
