The Hero's Die


The Hero’s Die is a table-top Role-Playing Game (RPG) with light mechanics that are designed to help you create a game with a strong narrative. The players are the Heroes of their story, and they decide how their Heroes will act when confronted with a variety of challenges and puzzles--all while attempting to fulfill a plot and accomplish a goal. In The Hero’s Die, the players create a story centered around uniquely crafted Heroes who are on an adventure of their making.

What you will find exclusive to this RPG system:

Narrative control - THD is governed by two guiding principles: Narrative compatibility & Narrative intent.

Hero Creation - Heroes are designed to be uniquely yours. Heroes grow through the use of Attributes and Skills, which are developed through gameplay. Race, stat blocks, and stereotypes are discouraged. The focus of the adventure is on you.

Villain Generator - Villains are designed to reflect a variety of difficulties that can suit the various needs of adventuring Heroes. They can be intricately planned or spawned on a moment's notice. The goal is for the villains to help promote the story onward.

HD Lite - For those who do not have the time or desire to prepare or read through modules and campaigns. HD Lite takes the core mechanics of THD and allows the players to experience a randomized one shot that will be unlike any adventure they've encountered before. With the diverse characteristics and high level of personalization, no two HD Lite games will ever be the same.

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.
