  1. New from Hall of Champions. The world of Terra Prime is one of conflict and contrast. A world that has been forever and irreversibly changed by a mystical calamity that the Nazi regime caused during the second World War which fused together different realities. It is our modern day world, but The Arrivals now call Terra Prime home; Elves, Dwarves, Orcs and more live side by side with humanity. High Magic has returned with the coming of The Arrivals, and has forever changed life as we know it. This fusing of realities also acted as a beacon to the denizens of the multiverse who now seek to conquer, control, or destroy Terra Prime. Terra Prime is the source of truth which all other realities are based on, whoever controls it would hold immeasurable power over the other realities. Mad forgotten gods, undead necromancer kings, and even the agents of light and darkness, all vie to posses the jewel of the multiverse. Included within this mini-setting book: Over 120 High Magic spells 8 race and 7 ancestry templates A small bestiary An introductory adventure for 3-6 players 6 sample characters Designed for HERO System 6th Edition rules. Additional files for Hero Designer are available for free on the Hero Games website: https://www.herogames.com/files/file/492-terra-prime-hero-designer-files/
  2. Those are specifically *not* Hero Games property. We have the right to sell them in their Hero System format - and possibly even include them in a hypothetical future collection or the like - but we/Cryptic Studios have no rights to characters created by you unless they are specifically created by you as part of the Champions Universe, or some of our other intellectual property. We cannot sell them, license them, create T-shirts with their likenesses on them, or anything like that. Jason Walters, Publisher

  5. This was intended for those who may have completed a project, and were holding back for some reason. It's not meant to pressure anyone; though, again, DriveThru requires that a new community content program open with a certain number of fan creations already available through it, and I don't have enough yet. If you haven't seen it yet, there is a complete file about what can, cannot, and can with permission be published under the community content program. Feel free to email me at jason@herogames.com to see it and ask for more information. Jason Walters, Publisher
  6. Hi guys! From the main page: as most of you already know, Hero Games will be launching a fan-driven community content program on DriveThruRPG in about two weeks, similar to Dungeon Masters Guild and Storytellers Vault. And at this point an amazing *fifty* of you have contacted me about contributing work to it! I was surprised and overwhelmed by the positive response, which I thank you all for. However, to launch the program in a couple of weeks I need many of you who have expressed interest to turn in your work in advance. So if you're working on something, have contacted me, and are nearly ready: please don't hesitate any longer. Send it to me! - Jason Walters, Publisher

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.
  10. Sounds legitimate to me. There will be art packs containing hundreds of images available to creators, which may help. Jason Walters, Publisher
  11. 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
  12. 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.
