Hey, hey! Thanks.Lord Mhoram said:Heya Buzz, nice to see you over here too.
I was going to post basically what Buzz did, but he beat me to it, and did a great job.
Yup. It's called Sidekick. US$9.99 for print, US$7.00 for PDF.Lord Mhoram said:HERO has a rulebook that has stripped a lot of the complexity out of the system, and written as a "learning guide" rather than the ultimate encyclopedia of the game system. If you want to learn the game, that is a great place to start. You lose some of the flexability of the system with it, but it makes it much easier to learn.
Yep. The complexity is generally up-front. Once you're character is built, gameplay is on par with D&D.Lord Mhoram said:By comparison, building a HERO character is about on par with buildinga 4th or 5th level D&D character (higher level if you are doing supers), but the complexity of upkeep is much simpler. A skill at base costs 3 point. A Lightning Bolt spell might cost 5-10. A point of a characteristic is between 1 and 3. At the end of each adventure you get 3-9 XP (depending on length ect) as an average. So it takes about 3 minutes to update the character.
Sorry to turn this into a HERO promotional thread. Us HERO fans just tend to be whores.
