  2. Merlin

    This is a write-up for Merlin the Magician adapted from various Arthurian legends, films, and RPG write-ups for D&D. Included is the Hero Designer file and character sheet (5th Edition) in Microsoft Word. Some design notes:
     
    1) Most of what I read depicted Merlin as a diviner and seer who works through others rather than actively commit direct action. The most common abilities depicted were his divination to see into the future, ability to move through nature much faster than normal means (those traveling with him also moved faster as a result), and glamour magic (illusions). I increased the END cost for his glamour since he often needed to sleep for an extended amount of time to use that magic.
     
    2) I adapted some of his abilities depicted in Romance of the Perilous Land RPG where Merlin is a druid and is able to summon forces of nature to strengthen others.
     
    3) I definitely included his lust as a disadvantage, since it was his lust that got him duped into being imprisoned in a magical tree by the Lady of the Lake (Viviene) in order to get him to stop fawning after her. 😉

  3. Reimagined Arthurian Legends

    I recently read Osprey Games' Romance in the Perilous Land that had interesting interpretations of characters from Arthurian romance. Inspired by the work, I developed four re-imagined legends from Arthurian legends. They are the following:
     
    1) Queen Guinevere is a knight. In this incarnation, war has come to Camelot. Initially healing the injured, Guinevere takes a more active role and takes up arms as the casualties rise and the war is not going in Camelot's favor. She still has her secret affair with Sir Lancelot, so I added the disguise and concealment skills that she would likely use.
     
    2) Elaine of Astolat is a knight. This version of Elaine takes up arms shortly after Sir Lancelot spurns her romantic advances after healing him where the villain knight Sir Turquine kills her father and attempts to ravage her. She wounds Sir Turquine enough to drive him away, and takes up arms to defend her home since he will return.
     
    3) Sir Pelleas is a returning crusader. In the story I read Sir Pelleas is betrayed by Sir Gawain and spurned by his love interest Ettarre, who Gawain lies about killing him and seduces her for his own benefit. Pelleas finds them sleeping together and leaves his sword laying on top of them to show Ettarre that he's alive and his honor to Gawain by sparing his life despite the betrayal. From there, my idea is that he leaves Camelot to protects traders and pilgrims to the Holy Land, comparable to a knight templar and gaining valuable experience, skills, and knowledge along the way and now wields a powerful scimitar to replace the sword he left behind. When he learns of King Arthur losing the war in Camelot, he returns to serve his king one more time.
     
    4) Sir Palamedes is a beast-hunter/cavalier from Arabia. I kept Palamedes a follower of the Islamic faith in this write-up and does not convert as depicted in the story I read. He's still in love with Iseult and wants to make her his third wife and is hunting the legendary Questing Beast. I loosely adapted him from the Ardeth Bey character depicted in Universal's Mummy and Mummy Returns films.
     
    Enjoy! 🙂

  4. Pendragon Campaign: Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Percival, Lamorak, and Galahad

    Attached are the Hero Designer Files and character write-ups for King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, Sir Lancelot, Sir Lamorak, Sir Percival, and Sir Galahad from British legends. I came across some really nice art designs of the characters, so in some cases there are two version of the same character with a different portrait.

  6. Red Sonja

    There have been fan write-ups of Robert E. Howard's Red Sonja for D&D, so here's my interpretation of the famous character of the sword and sorcery genre for Fantasy Hero. Included is the Hero Designer file,  Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word to use, edit, and print as you see fit.
     
    Enjoy! 🙂
     
    General Notes
    1) Red Sonja is a mythic level hero, so 200 points were used in the character write-up.
    2) Despite wearing even less armor than Conan of Cimmeria with her iconic metal bikini, Red Sonja is seldom hit and does not suffer significant damage despite many battles, being dropped from high places, fights with monsters, and so on. I attributed that to the goddess Scathach's divine power bestowed on Red Sonja and is reflected accordingly.

  7. Heroes and Villains of Dungeons & Dragons

    That Dungeons & Dragons toy display I saw must have had a profound impact, because it inspired me to complete character write-ups with some back story under Hero System 5th Edition. Included in this WinZip file are the following:
     
    Mercion - 125 pts (Hero Designer and Microsoft Excel)
    Ringlerun - 200 pts (Hero Designer file, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word)
    Teresa Lysander - 150 pts (Hero Designer file, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word) - Entirely new character I created
    Spectral Bear (Microsoft Word only)
    Strongheart - 175 pts (Hero Designer file, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word)
    Marengo, Strongheart's Destrier (Microsoft Word only)
    Turan, Strongheart's Bronze Dragon (Microsoft Excel and Word)
    Warduke - 175 pts (Hero Designer file, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word)
    Hesperos, Warduke's Nightmare (Microsoft Word only)
    Kelek - 200 pts (Hero Designer file, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word)
    Skylla - 175 pts (Hero Designer file, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word)
     
    General Notes:
    1) Warduke's been depicted wielding his sword with his left and right hand by various artists, so I made him ambidextrous.
    2) I developed a backstory between Bronze Dragon and Nightmare and gave them names. Their adaptations are from the 5th Edition Book of Dragons and Bestiary, respectively.
    3) I created Teresa Lysander as the character who raised Bronze Dragon (see his backstory), inspired by Magic: The Gathering's Keeper of the Beasts card. I also created Spectral Bears, another Magic: The Gathering adaptation.
    4) I sort of went crazy on Ringlerun's spells, adapting them from various Magic: The Gathering cards that I used to play many years ago. Of note is Absorb, which combined Counterspell and Healing Salve, and Lightning Helix, which combined Lightning Bolt and Healing Salve. 😀
    5) Perks and Talents were minimally used, if at all. If used, they were added to the "Skills & Abilities" category.
    6) I eliminated the Magic Skill roll requirement from previous write-ups. In the various fantasy themed books, comics, shows, and films I've read and watched, the spells pretty much happened following some incantations, gestures, etc. and I wanted to replicate that effect. Spell misfires or failures were often attributed to something else associated with the story or a character weakness that would later be addressed or be a recurring theme as part of the overall story.

  8. Conan the Barbarian

    There have been several fan write-ups of Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian, so here's my interpretation of the famous character synonymous with the sword and sorcery genre. Some general design notes:
     
    1) Character build is 225 points, putting Conan as an epic hero and entering superhero levels. He was featured in the Marvel Universe around 2018 fighting against and with the likes of Kraven, Spider-Man, and such, so it seemed a comparable fit.
     
    2) Different options are listed for weapons and armor, as there have been times Conan wears leather armor, scalemail, or is just bare chested with a helmet, shield, and weapon of choice. The cinematic interpretation of Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger) has him with an Atlantean sword, while various comics feature him with a broadsword and/or a battle axe.
     
    3) Conan seldom suffers injury or hit, which I attribute to a combination of a high DCV for Fantasy Hero for his physical attributes and skills, toughened skin, Combat Luck, and actual Luck points. The latter two I attribute to Crom. 🙂
     
    Enjoy!

  17. Ms. Victory (Joan Wayne, Jennifer Burke)

    Here are my character write-ups for AC Comics' Ms. Victory, featuring the original (Joan Wayne) and her daughter who was her temporary replacement (Jennifer Burke). Both are roughly each other's equal in power levels at around 400 points for 6th Edition. In the few times I brought them to a game convention, players who had heard of Ms. Victory used her for the scenario (the original was generally preferred since she could fly).
     
    The Hero Designer Files and character sheets in Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF are included in the Zip file for both 5th and 6th Edition.

    This is a re-imagined version of the classic villain duet Thunder & Lightning (Margaret and John Harrington, respectively) as Assault & Battery. Assault (Margaret Westfeld) is inspired by Thunder as a physical powerhouse and Battery (John Westfeld) is an electrical energy projector based off of Lightning.
     
    One of the scenarios I developed had them working for a government sponsored team known as Task Force Sentinel that is responsible for protecting the families of superheroes in their civilian identities from threats like VIPER.
