Compact Heroes Master Set


2011 DieHard Gamefan's Best New Game of the Year Winner!

Can't make it to your FLGS to get your copy?  Now you can order direct from DTRPG, and at a discount! 

Compact Heroes gives you the full experience of a traditional fantasy role-playing game, but with the portabilty of a card game.  It is not collectible, and is not competative.  It is, in all sense of the words, played like any other traditional role-playing game.

This version includes more than 160 cards--more than enough for a group of up to 5 or 6 players to play!  Skills, monsters, magic items, spells, the list goes on!  What is not included, and how this set differs from the retail version, is that it is not in a boxed set and does not include the dice that are found there.

I was lucky enough to meet the designer of this when he was touring conventions to promote it (Gamestorm in this case, if memory serves) and was impressed with how well it played. I'm glad to see it's still going, and am going to order the game as soon as I can.

Ciao Denis, ho comprato anch'io il master set e le due espansioni ma c'é molta confusione. La prima cosa che voglio fare é un elenco dettagliato e completo di tutte le carte divise per categorie sennó non ce ne usciamo in quanto sono veramente tante.

Is it possible to have an italian version of the cards?
I can offer myself to translate all the cards.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
