HERO TIME Sourcebook


At last, it's here! The sourcebook two years in the making!

"Hero Time" is a high-fantasy setting that draws from and expands upon the hallmarks of the genre, where players can play as or fight alongside Elves, Dwarves, Holban, Nomes, and many other species as they quest throughout the ancient and storied world of Virbis. This world has many, many lands to explore, from sweeping plains, searing deserts, bitterly cold tundras, and tropical archipelagos, and in every unexplored corner of wild land there's an unresolved mystery to be solved or a new discovery to be made. All you have to do is look.

The time has come... do you have what it takes to be a hero?

This expansion contains:

  • The brand-new "Hero Time" setting, complete with a fleshed-out history, world map, factions, locations, and even calendars and languages!
  • An expanded array of options for character creation, including 10 playable species and 10 classes, with 3 specializations and talent trees EACH!
  • An overwhelming selection of 211 items, and if that wasn't enough, there are amazing new customization options to modify them to your heart's content!
  • A significantly overhauled version of the magic system presented in the original rulebook, with all kinds of new effects and 201 premade spells!
  • 100 adversaries, ready for use right out of the box, complete with challenge ratings!
  • And much more!

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.
