Hero System Combat Handbook - PDF

ZIP File


The HERO System rules are designed to handle any type of combat - whether it involves two groups of gun-wielding gangsters on a grimy inner city stret, caped superheroes using energy bolts and super-strength in a fight in outer space, Fantasy warriors and wizard wielding swords and spells against trolls and dragons, a blaster duel in the corridors of a starship, or even stranger forms of conflict. The basic rules in Chapter Two of the HERO System 5th Edition, Revised rulebook, combined with the more advanced or genre-specfic rules in carious HERO System books, allow you to fight just about any type o battle youcan imagine.

To help your game run as smoothly and enjoyable as possible, The HERO System Combat Handbook complies the combat rules from the HERO System 5th Edition, Revised rulebook and these supplements:

Dark Champions
Fantasy Hero
Hidden Lands
The Ultiamte Brick
The Ultimate Martial Artist

Additionally, The HERO System Combat Handbook supplements that material with new rules, expanded and clarified rules, and other information so you have all the combat rules you need right at your fingertips.

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.
