The individual products will be priced the same as the English Hero Kids products. However, not all of the titles will be translated immediately, so there will not be a 'complete' bundle initially.

Hi Charles, Hero Kids plays best from 5 to around 8 or 9. And, if you're concerned about him losing battles, try giving him a pet to adventure with.

I want to purchase this bundle to have all the stuff to play with my nefew but I don't really understand what do we have in this bundle.
Do we have ALL the pdf published so far or do we have only what we can read on the description?
I'm wondering because it shows 47.70$ for the original price but in the description, with what it shows, it's not really that much...

So with that bundle do I have to buy the core set anyway?

And as many asked, since I'm french, did the heroes card have been translated in french? (because I'm not really sure that my 5y-o nefew know how to speak English ;))

Well, I went ahead and bought the bundle. Ideally, I'll be able to get to the the library (my printer is broken) and print this stuff out and we can try to run a game with our daughter. It seems like a lot of fun, so I hope she enjoys it. We've been wanting to try a role-playing game with her for a while now.

Also, I did not get a pdf version of the Fantasy Adventure Compendium. Is that not a thing? I searched through the files and I didn't see it there, but it seems like it should be part of the bundle.

The Fantasy Adventure Compendium is simply a compilation of the adventures already published & included here as PDFs. To my knowledge you aren't missing anything of the official Hero Kids stuff by picking up this bundle.

Format
Original electronic
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.
