The Ultimate Energy Projector

ZIP File


One of the most popular archetypes in roleplaying games is the energy projector — the character who commands the awesome, elemental powers of energy, whether he’s a Fire Bolt-flinging wizard in a Fantasy game, a superhero who glows with raw power as he shoots beams of pure energy, or an energy-manipulating alien in a Science Fiction setting.

The Ultimate Energy Projector is your guide to creating and playing energy projectors in the HERO System. It deals with all facets of energy projection powers in HERO System terms, from the “mechanical” aspects of creating them to using them in your campaign properly. It includes:

—guidelines for creating energy projectors, including a review of various HERO System elements — Skills, Powers, Disadvantages, and more — as they especially pertain to energy projectors

—the Energy Spectrum, a systematic review of over 30 different types of energy with detailed information and rules about  how they function “realistically,” how they interact with one another in game terms, and how to build abilities with them and use them in your campaign

—a genre-by-genre review of energy projectors with sample characters for each type of campaign

—expanded guidelines and rules for adventuring and combat with energy projectors

Prepare to feel the power with The Ultimate Energy Projector!

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.
