Fantasy Hero (3rd Edition)


You've just entered a fantastic world of heroes, adventures, and enchantments-the world of Fantasy Hero. Through these rules, you'll learn how to create a fantasy world and how to create stories set in that world. You and your friends will create heroic characters to star in these stories, and working together, you'll create adventures as gripping as any you've ever read. These adventures will be even more exciting because you, in the guise of your character, will be making the choices, defeating the villains, and rescuing the maidens.

Fantasy Hero is a roleplaying game, where the players create characters and play their roles in a story created by the Game Master. These rules show you how to create characters, how to resolve combat, how to fashion a world, and how to invent stories. Fantasy Hero is a game for many people to play. One person, who's decided to be the Game Master, has to read and understand all of these rules, since he'll be creating the stories and settings and guiding the player-characters through these stories. The players need only create or be given characters to play-but the more they know about Fantasy Hero, the easier it will be for the Game Master to tell his story.

Fantasy Hero uses the Hero System, a consistent set of roleplaying rules that has been used in Champions (superhero roleplaying), Justice Inc. ('20s and '30s roleplaying), and Danger International (modern roleplaying). Characters created in any of these games can play in any of them. The basic rules in each game are the same, though each game has different special rules for its particular genre. Once you've learned to play any one of these games, you'll know how to play them all!

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.
