THE HERO SYSTEM ESSENTIALS IN ONE SMALL PACKAGE

The critically-acclaimed HERO System rules are now available in a new form: Sidekick!

Sidekick contains all of the core HERO System rules, including character creation, combat and adventuring, and equipment — but without all of the additions, options, and details found in the standard rulebook. Sidekick boils the HERO System down to its essential elements so you can easily teach yourself the game, bring new players into your campaign quickly, or refresh your memory on a crucial rule. And when you're ready to move up to the complete HERO System, learning it will be a snap because Sidekick's already taught you the basics!

But Sidekick doesn't sacrifice the flexibility, customizability, and freedom that are the hallmarks of the HERO System. With it you can create any sort of character, ability, weapon, spell, gadget, or vehicle you can think of. It lets you do just what you want to do: create great characters and games.

Sidekick includes:

—A quick introduction to the HERO System rules, with guidelines and suggestions for character creation

—Character creation rules, including Characteristics, Skill, Perks, Talents, Powers, Advantages, Limitations, Disadvantages, and more

—Combat, adventuring, and task resolution rules that are easily learned but offer a wide range of tactics and abilities

—Five sample characters, plus hundreds of example abilities, spells, weapons, and vehicles

—A comprehensive glossary and index so you can easily find just the rule you're looking for

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.
