The Hero System Bestiary (3rd Edition)


Welcome to the wonderful world of animals, courtesy of Hero Games. "Why animals?", you may ask, if you are not one of the many GMs and players who have requested-even demanded-this supplement. The answer is that there are numerous ways in which our fellow creatures may add to a good game scenario. Animals add to the background detail; appropriate creatures can contribute inestimably to the flavor of a scenario. The lost valley that the Justice, Inc. explorers have slogged through the jungle for weeks to discover would hardly be worth the trip without a few prehistoric monsters to marvel at. A Fantasy Hero campaign milieu without its dragons or unicorns is almost unthinkable. That winged snake on the other side of the interdimensional portal is a quick and easy way to inform the Champions superhero that he or she has taken a wrong turn. To the Danger International hero, the African savanna would look much like any other plain without its lions, zebras and giraffes; the kangaroo practically is Australia. Even the California Imperial Valley wouldn't be quite the same without the horses and cows in the fields.

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.
