  1. Thanks Steve! Now I am going to have to go back and read the Turakian Age thread. Sheesh. Maybe even pull out the book or bring up the PDF and start going through it again. Been playing DND 5E lately because of the ease of support in Roll20 and Character Sheet integration. Anything to get me coming back to some HERO properties is welcome. Voted Tavrosel also. Probably for the wrong reasons. First the right reason.... From the description it would seem like a good place for a party to be from with different backgrounds and can have either land o
  2. One of the many patreon/kickstarter projects I sponsored (Narosia, Extinction Event, etc) but did not get around to reading. The only other idea i have for sectional books to merge them in with what Spence and Hugh said.... drop in items. Mainly adventures. Can you have a series of small adventures with a map/graphic or two that can either be dropped into a current campaign or gathered into a campaign when you have 3-5 of them? Back in the day, I did buy Fantasy Hero Battlegrounds and used most of those adventures in my group's campaign.
  3. I think that one or more of these were mentioned earlier in this thread. I really like the idea of sectional books or the idea of a way to buy the collection (finished bundle). Various ideas for sectional books: Real and fictional equipment and vehicles. I realize that a lot of this is covered under the 6E Equipment guide, but was not sure if you could break them down by genre and/or intellectual property. Old/Low tech: High/Low Fantasy, Historical eras around the world Modern: Dark Champions, Champions, Danger International Future: Trave
  4. Hi Simon, I apologize if this is somewhere on the site that I am not aware of. Are there release notes or a summary on what the latest update to Hero Designer covers? Don't need any real details, but would like to know of any changes to features and such. Norm. PS. Is there a way to watch the purchase page in the client area to be notified when you update Hero Designer?
  5. Sorry if this is rambling.... still in a little bit of shock and things are kind of raw right now. Saw this thread for the first time today.... after reading 3 pages, skipped to the end since it was 22 pages. Not even sure why I am writing this. Today, my family became one of the statistics. My 75 year old mother-in-law died this afternoon due to complication from the coronavirus (respiratory failure). She was very healthy for her age... only on thyroid medication.... no heart, blood pressure, cholesterol, nor any other 'old person' maintenance drugs.
  6. The wayback machine failed me also. It did take me down a rabbit hole to see OLD versions of the site along with other people's sites I used to look at (Red October BBS, Dungeon Hero, Surbook's Stuff, etc). I forgot that Surbook's Stuff has been around as long as it has. Memory lane... man am I starting to feel old. https://web.archive.org/web/19980204044814/http://www.herogames.com/herogames/links.html https://web.archive.org/web/19980702070157/http://www.herogames.com/herogames/links.html https://web.archive.org/web/19981206215529/http://www.herogames.co
  7. Since no one responded to you in the forum, you can always try the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of most of the HERO Games website pages. That seems to be the standard answer for these types of questions. Good luck.
  8. YES! This is the organization that I threw at my gaming group after a couple of small adventures. Interrupting a kidnapping or two brought the party to the attention of the local group of the Red Talons. The party started to investigate some more and was getting an idea that this was a larger group than they thought. Suddenly DNCPs/contacts/family/friends were threatened/investigated/kidnapped by the Guild to distract them. Fun for all.
  9. It is like Lord Liaden said. It is a D&D 5E book. I was able to find it on Lulu. http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/d3adventures huh.... searching around.... seemed to have found a HERO version on DriveThru https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/226923/Here-Be-Dragons-Hero
  10. The D3 version is 6E. I bought mine back in 2012. It has the 6E picture on the front cover. I was combing over the site and could not find it. It is strange, because I still see other 5E and 6E D3 items in the store. Interesting..... According to rpggeek, the Evil Beagle version was published in 2017 https://rpggeek.com/rpgitem/122280/here-be-dragons-hero But RPGNow (sue me, I am old) says it was last updated in December of 2016. Give me a minute to download it. It appears I purchased it sometime, somehow.
  11. Thank you for putting the Early Hero bundle out there. I am going to grab it for The Armory. I had the physical book and sold it a decade or so ago when I did a purge of a lot of my physical books. I have regretted it since. Do you know if you are going to be putting out the 4e era Hero as a bundle sometime? I see that Champions 4E was a bundle back in April 2017, but nothing for Fantasy Hero, Star Hero, etc.
  12. Both. Full write-ups in the first book that I am looking through. Equipment, profession templates, racial templates, etc. For example, the K'kree template has 61 points in abilities and -40 points in disadvantages. When I bought it, I did not realize that it was 5th edition. I did not know you could buy them in the Hero Store (under 5E Star Hero). https://www.herogames.com/forums/store/category/15-star-hero/ Still glad I bought the CDROM.
  13. Mainly I am tired of subscriptions. Don't mind some of them, but I am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed. $10/month for this.... $15/month for that.... Anyway, I finally went through the store and bought around $30 of supplements and adventures. Things that I would like to see.
  14. If you find something, please tell me. Right now, I can only think of a mix of things. 1. roll20 for the VTT. It has 3 'stats' (red, blue, green bars) that can be easily kept track of in the token. I figure Body, Stun, Endurance. I have not tried their built in character sheet. Only a free member. Not sure if possible. Willing to try alternatives. 2. Hero Combat Manager for the GM. Already bought. 3. A HTML export template for Hero Designer that can be loaded into a browser. It could look like a normal character sheet, but have enough javascript/HTML5 to roll a
  15. I bought it a long time ago as you Tech and Duke mentioned above. I will buy almost anything not Pulp nor Champions. Everything in one CDROM... PDFs and HeroDesigner files. At least I still have a linux box that can read it. ? That and it has power armor (BattleDress) write-ups.
