  1. I haven't worked on it in a while. I'll see if I can crank a few more write-ups out this week for you.
  2. I may have some notes around here somewhere... 168 pages in 11 point type. Stolen Sourced from every nook and cranny of Gamma Terra itself. https://1drv.ms/b/s!AnjlOlt_p61acI2-Bsn-jy6sf-g?e=M6C0Wa There's a lot of stuff in there that I forgot about stealing... wow. Any complaints and it comes out immediately. Or faster. EDIT: Looks like I posted this about 3 years ago. This is an updated file.
  3. Fantasy HERO Formulary.pdf Downloads section isn't visited much, is it? Here's my Alchemy Guide. A work in progress.
  4. I should have been more clear... When the Cog Demon reaches 10 BODY, 1d6 is added to the axe's HKA. Might be a better way of doing it. I'm always open to suggestions if you think there's a better way to simulate it. Bolding that plus might have helped. Killing Attack - Hand-To-Hand 1d6 (2d6 w/STR), Reduced Endurance (½ END; +¼), Trigger (Activating the Trigger requires a Zero Phase Action, Trigger resets automatically, immediately after it activates, Character does not control activation of personal Trigger; Half BODY; +½)
  5. Nice! Might give that a try after they finished sneaking around Edinburgh Castle this Saturday.
  6. Version 1.0.0


    Herein, you will find all sorts of things. Many of them are incomplete, stupid, or just too weird to keep in my head any longer. So here you are. A glimpse into my Fantasy HERO campaign. If you like it, remember that it is the work of years, slaved over and pounded upon until it has reached the incomplete state you find it in. If you do not like it, note that I slept a great deal during those years, some if almost certainly while typing.
  7. The Fantasy HERO Formulary is now in the Downloads section.
  8. This vile collection of gears, springs, bellows, and terrible flame strides toward you on cloven brass hooves. Its war cry is accompanied by a blast of steam and a glare of malice. It is knowledge and technological progress bound up with hate and betrayal. It has inspired steampunk horrors, devastating siege engines, and weapons of mass destruction. It is the bane of tinkers and workers of both intricate brass and unbreakable steel. Cog Demon.pdf Cog Demon.hdc
  9. How is it that I didn't know this?
  10. I'll talk to the wife. She LOVES that show.
  11. Here's a bit about the setting. Ravenna Public.pdf Some hasty editing just now. Might give you a clue. 185 pages of clues. Public Consumption Edition This edition of Ravenna has been doped with distilled lies, concentrated falsehoods and Fib Dust. To mundane readers, It will appear as a treatise on the matter of the mating habits of the koala, while those with a talent for magic see it for what it is: an expose of the true nature of the world, magical and wondrous. If you can, get your hands on the pages about the koalas, though, it’s actually quite fascinating.
  12. I'm stumbling over how to transition my Danger International campaign from totally mundane sneaking and running and shooting and dying to my Ravenna setting. I want the shock of realization, but not so shocking as encountering an elf or demon. I though about fuzzy security camera footage of a guy killing someone by a lethal finger-gesture. Points, twitches his thumb, and the target drops as if shot with a pistol. The PCs actually find a bullet which doesn't match any ballistics profile. The game takes place in 1985 (the year Danger International is set). I have a print copy of it
  13. Hi. I have a thing I wrote about 3 years ago as an occasional distraction from my wife's medical condition. Don't mistake me. I was there for her. Like mad. As in it drove her mad. She's fine now, by the way. But I digress. I wrote this. It was originally 62 pages+the cover, but a lot of stuff in that document could get me in a lot of trouble, so I trimmed it down to 9 pages. It does not include my usual style of humor. I respect Tolkien's work too much to add Pleet Roodlepleen-style funny bits. The bits about magic come from The One Ring, an official Middle Earth pr
  14. Version 1.0.0


    I got bored. Started writing. Made a PDF of extreme martial arts moves one might find in an episode of Dragon Ball Z (or worse). 12 pages, more than 60 Techniques, some jokes and a hint of a campaign unplayed.
  15. Jason, 

    Where can I find guidelines for becoming a 3rd party HERO publisher? 

  16. Reticulax Repulsoids The Reticulax Repulsoids have only cartilage analogs and hate holding them together. Morphologically similar to armored 4-armed snakes, they are actually a form of evolved spite. They care for nothing and no one. They are immune to pain. I had dealings with a group of Repulsoids while working at Research-o-Rama. The Bloody Moon sect had informed me of a cache of "scientific equipment" stored in a disused shuttle bay in the jungles of Praxima II. Quickly assembling a crack team from the University Inebriax Burger Bar and Gyration Dome, we set out to recov
  17. When will this be in the on-line store? I won't be making it to Gen Con this year... silly priorities.
  18. Re: City of Heroes - Online Hero Game I play Bob Violence on Virtue. My Global is Bob Violence. He's a Mutant Tanker. About Five-foot nuthin' Goggles, big honkin' steam-powered fists. Can jump half a mile. Fun Fun Fun
  19. Re: Dark Champions Campaigns I'm about to start a DC game... and I've let a (somewhat geeky) non-gamer have a look at my notes. She said it would make a good mini- or full-run TV series in the vein of The X-Files or Millenium. So I'm pretty happy with those notes. It does read a bit like Doom or Blood 2: The Chosen or ... Body Snatchers, but I think it will stand on its own once I get going. We're going to start it this week.
  20. Re: Eberron Hero Then I have been mislead somewhat... But we both use Elemental Furnaces... and I have demon powered stuff like Peirs Anthony suggested once... Still... makes me think they might have gone for Caleon... who knows?
  21. Re: Eberron Hero Ya know what bugs me about Eberron? It bears shocking similarity to a game I've ben running for 20-odd years and didn't think was up to the challenge presented by the Setting Search. Look at the similarities: Construct PCs, Articifers, Steam Power, Dragon-centered mythology...many more exist... I'm not saying, of course that Keith Baker ripped me off, but my material was on a public website for years. Makes me think I should have entered, but with my various Attention Disorders, I don't think I'd have stood up to the pressure of actually writing it all down.
  22. Re: Any Arcanum-style campaigns out there?
  23. Re: Any Arcanum-style campaigns out there? I started running Caleon in 1987 and it hasd steam and magic from about day one. I'm slowly converting it back to HERO after a long stint in GURPS and d20... It will have steam rules soon, and the magic system is one Killer Shrike and I adapted from my notes on how I should have been doing it all along. http://www.geocities.com/jephkay Again, the website is in it's earliest stages. There is a bit on Steam Tech, but it's not in HERO terms just yet. The Ultimate Vehicle has some stuff, tho...
  24. ....Are the Official CU Alien package deals in Champions Universe? Or do we buy Terran Empire for that? Hmmm?
