  1. I was seeing this same issue and tried Chris' solution — renaming the TK file to .ZIP and extracting. It worked, creating a folder as he said. I poked around some of the other files and noticed there are others (e.g., Teleport) that suffer the same problem. I think it would be helpful to remedy this issue for the pack so future buyers don't have this problem, and maybe even see about turning those .hdc files into .hdp files (which are much more useful).
  2. Re: Handling money in a Star HERO campaign Thanks for the ideas, guys!
  3. I'm gearing up for a Star HERO campaign that will likely focus on a group of PCs with their own merchant ship looking to pay the bills moving cargo and takng on passengers. I.e., typical Traveller/Firefly type stuff. I'd like advice on how to handle money in a campaign like this. I'm wary of having the PCs count every last credit; I don't want to make this feel like D&D, i.e., where one player always gets designated the "Excel bitch." . I'd like the freedom to begin adventures with "So, down on your luck once again...", i.e., just handle money more as a plot element, but I don't want to negate the PCs accomplishments. Doesn't seem like much fun if the GM just handwaves away any money you earn in order to get an adventure going. And, of course, being a Heroic campaign, money also has a lot to do with available equipment, so I need to keep that in mind. So, how are you guys handling money in your own campaigns?
  4. Re: Where else do you roll down? You know, as long as a "bonus" is something you add and a "penalty" is something you subtract, I don't see why anyone should have a problem with a roll-under system. (I was happy when GoO stopped doing this backwards with TriStat.) In the end, regardless of the fact that you want to roll low to determine success and roll high (ideally) to determine effect in HERO, you're still rolling X number of dice, *adding* them all up, and making a comparison (be it to a target number or against a another PC's BODY/STUN/EGO/PRE/etc.). Intuitive enough for me.
