  1. New from Tiger's Eye Media. What does a man do when someone kills their family? You seek revenge of course. Learn magic, become a powerful mage and then when you still want more power become a lich. What does one do when the realm bands together and banishes you to a dimension full of undead? You take over the dimension of course. What do you do after that? Fight to return to this dimension so you can take it over as well. Arcana is a supplement for Champions and Fantasy Hero. This supplement introduces Oeramm, a powerful lich that wants to take over this dimension and punish its inhabitants for wrongs done to him. Hero you will find stats for Oeramm, varies undead and a new organization that is helping him to achieve his goal. Red Death an organization led by a demon and hell bent on bring Oeramm to this dimension forever. Available in 98 page PDF format or PDF and Hero Designer files both editions come with printable cardboard miniatures.
  2. Sounds legitimate to me. There will be art packs containing hundreds of images available to creators, which may help. Jason Walters, Publisher
  3. 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. Jason Walters, Publisher jason@herogames.com
  4. DriveThruRPG has asked me only to release the exact terms of the upcoming program to a select few fans for the purpose of getting some material ready before launch. So, by-and-large, this *is* the press release - though I will "front page" it as well, and also post links to various groups. Basically, if you contact me by email because you wish to participate in advance, I'll provide the exact information. The rest will become public mid next month when they bring it live.

  7. From waybackwhen! "Horror Hero is a combination genre and campaign book designed for use with the Hero System 4th Edition rules. It contains material describing ways of creating and running horror-themed role playing games. Horror Hero does not contain the rules needed to play the game; creating characters, using skills and conducting combat are described in the Hero System Rulesbook (4th Edition), available separately."
  8. Jason, 

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

  9. Every fantasy hero campaign needs magical treasures for the adventures to find. This series houses information on varies information on just such treasures. Rods & Staff. Legends tell of power magical rods and staffs, rods that can heal. Rods that can kill with one strike or rods that can become any weapon you wish. Staffs to control undead or that shoot forth dragons fire or even staffs that summon demons. The ZIP file includes the PDF and Hero Designer files.
  10. Welcome to Monster Mash. Here you will find new creatures and/or new takes on old creatures for your Fantasy Hero Campaign. This installment will cover new undead creatures known as Dread Allip, Death Horse & Death Knight. All these undead creatures can easily be the death of even the heartiest adventures. Includes a 16 page PDF and Hero Designer Files. These creatures were originally presented in the Necronomicon.
  11. 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.
  12. The ENnie Award nominations have been made this year, and there's a Hero System product in the mix: Champions Character Creation Cards by High Rock Press are up for Best Aid/Accessory (Non-Digital). So go vote for it, and show that there is still a lot of love out there for the Hero System!
  13. These three 5th edition titles have never before been available in electronic format: Fantasy Hero Grimoire II, Monsters, Minions, & Marauders, and Sharper Than A Serpent's Tooth. So if you've ever wanted to add them to your collection of electronic titles, now is the time.
