Terra Prime


Welcome to the Urban Fantasy and Steampunk sale! From now through April 18th, this digital title has been marked down by up to 30%! For more values, visit our Urban Fantasy and Steampunk sale page.

The world of Terra Prime is one of conflict and contrast. A world that has been forever and irreversibly changed by a mystical calamity that the Nazi regime caused during the second World War which fused together different realities. It is our modern day world, but The Arrivals now call Terra Prime home; Elves, Dwarves, Orcs and more live side by side with humanity. High Magic has returned with the coming of The Arrivals, and has forever changed life as we know it.

This fusing of realities also acted as a beacon to the denizens of the multiverse who now seek to conquer, control, or destroy Terra Prime. Terra Prime is the source of truth which all other realities are based on, whoever controls it would hold immeasurable power over the other realities. Mad forgotten gods, undead necromancer kings, and even the agents of light and darkness, all vie to posses the jewel of the multiverse.

Included within this mini-setting book:

  • Over 120 High Magic spells

  • 8 race and 7 ancestry templates

  • A small bestiary

  • An introductory adventure for 3-6 players

  • 6 sample characters

Designed for HERO System 6th Edition rules; this is not a stand alone game and requires at least the HERO System Basic Rulebook to play.

Additional files for Hero Designer are available for free on the Hero Games website:

I was about to buy this but was turned off by the preview...or should I say lack of one? Your previews tell us nothing. You need to show us much more than 2 pages. The table of contents at least, and some mechanics or something that sparks the buyer. Pages of character types or concepts, something.

Hey, I'm a little new to all this... I've modified the preview per your suggestion.

This is a definite improvement, thank you! I do wish there were some more meat...I'm interested in the magic system but as it falls into the schools of the Grimoire, I'm left wondering how it differentiates itself from them. However, just know about the races and the schools is a big help.

The overlap with spells lines from the Grimoire is happenstance. I wrote the spell lines and spells myself and only a very small handful of them where adapted from the Grimoire... I'm guessing ~5. The magic system is called High Magic and it's designed to allow for a high fantasy feel to a spellcaster. They can pick up an array of spells but it will cost them CP. Baked into the system is a divisor that GMs are free to dial up or down the exact CP cost of spells in their world by increasing or reducing the cost of spells. I recognise that some GMs take a hard line about such discounts and don't want to discourage them from tweaking the costs to their liking. My personal take is that I wanted a high fantasy feel, so I put in the divisor on spell costs but I get that some people just don't like that model.

I engaged the community on the Hero Games forums about spell systems and got some very interesting ideas that ranged from no CP costs to full CP costs. Ultimately, I decided I wanted magic...See more

This sounds awesome! Do you hope to publish more material in support of it? Organization books, more adventures, etc? Is this based on a campaign that you have been running for a group?

I ran this as a one shot for my regular group and it went well. I would like to do some more with this setting to expand it further. I feel like there's a lot of room to revise the history of Terra Prime and put together org books like you have mentioned.

It's a functional setting but there's a lot of room for it to expand and fill in some gaps :)

I bought this product and am very happy with it! The setting information provides a good, broad base for a campaign. Spell descriptions seem to take up a lot of the pages. The descriptive text is very readable and helpful in giving a general feel for the GM to flesh out. I would love to see some splat books for races and organizations and some adventure modules! :)

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.
