  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. I'll talk to the wife. She LOVES that show.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. Here are a few of mine. Just finished this. The HDC is not up to date with the PDF...but when is it. really? Error Code - Doragon-Ken.pdf Techniques.hdc
  15. Présenté sans commentaire. Error Code - Doragon-Ken.pdf
  16. Oh, that's not bad at all! Thanks!
  17. I'm translating Villains and Vigilantes' The Centerville Incident to HERO System. Yay! One of the characters is Special Officer Koniji Hirakarini, a space cop. She's got a gun, a short skirt, and all the anime tropes you care to apply. Her weird thing is Proxima; who is her armor and ship and best friend. They are the same person. This is a really cool idea, but how to build it? Do you just build a multiform for Proxima? Can a person (android) multiform into a vehicle? Proxima is an android? Easy enough. Proxima is a ship? Multiform to a character with all the
  18. The Dragons of Caleon have various response to those who would employ their hides as haberdashery. Riachadda doesn't take offense so much as revenge. She sees her kind as noble beasts, standing apart from other creatures. While generally a force for good, murder is another matter. Korgalath is often amused. The armored character is often barbecued. Zinzalor might like to know if the hide in question was a friend. His reaction is generally based on the answer, as he has a number of rivals that he'd like to see on a dwarf's backside in one way or another. Nornastor is a
  19. I'm seeing the same issue, but having been a software tester for more than 10 years, I went through the steps above (even before reading this thread) and I still get the SPDEFENSES parsering error. HD is up-to-date, the Combat Manager is the most recent version, having been downloaded to this PC just the other day. Both characters are 6E, using the 6E export v1.1. The combat record is in the same directory as HCM. The file I tried is attached. I should note that this has worked in the past, but these are new installations. Is there a newer version of the export than th
  20. So... what about Autofire? I have a player who doesn't realize it, but he will be asking that question. Soon. So very soon.
  21. A certain hi-tek culture coreward of the Union (but not so far that you are tripping over Aurorans), the Kellis, have a dirty habit of removing dead soldier's brains and putting them in weird ceramic modules. These modules have life support and neuro-interface sockets. They build robots with compatible hardware (they built some others that weren't compatible. I can get those for you cheap). Now, a Kellian warrior doesn't just die for his world once... but over and over as maintenance schedules allow. When not actually hooked up to a battle-bot, hover-tank, or neuro-fighter, Kellian Warrior Mo
  22. Telerons are fickle little bastards, are they not? Well done!
