Fantasy Hero Kickstarter

Hey guys, the same folks that did the MHI Employee Handbook and RPG have just launched a new Kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/herogames/fantasy-hero-complete

So if you picked up the MHI RPG, and want to be able to expand that into traditional fantasy stuff, check this out. Or if you just want to pick up a new fantasy RPG. Either way, they’re a great bunch of guys to work with.

Have the MHI game. Been running a campaign with my wife, two of my kids, our bishop and his son. So far they’ve dealt with a bunch of trolls that were running a bitcoin operation under a bridge in Harrisburg, PA, as luck would have it a few weeks after that game the real life bridge (Mulberry Street Bridge) was shutdown due to structural damage. I am working the cost of repairs into the game. The one player is our bishop from church (LDS), his character’s exposure to monsters was when he had to blow up the ward building after… Read more »

Wow, the Champions system. Or what used to be Champions, anyway (dates self). That takes me back.

I owned Fantasy Hero when it first came out. We only played briefly before switching to GURPS system though. I thought it was a better product however. My only issue with Hero System in general is the math. Good lord making characters was literally more complicated than my taxes at the time.

Hero System math isn’t hard. Sure, you *may* need a logarithm or two, but if you can do fractions up to fourths in your head, that handles most of it. And if you can’t do fractions up to fourths in your head, how’d you ever pass elementary? – Narf, Evil Lord of Evil, with a goatee to prove it. …Oh, fine. If you really need it, there’s Hero Designer software that will do the math for you. I use it all the time, because, really, what sane person wants to do fractions in their head? As an additional note, FHC… Read more »

The reasons for us making this choice are strictly economic. It costs us somewhere between three and five times as much to ship intentionally as domestically. The $15,000 we are asking to complete this… Read more »

The Kickstarter for Fantasy Hero Complete just cracked $8000 in the first six days! Only $7000 to go to fully fund, and if that happens in the next 9 days, International Shipping is unlocked!

International shipping is a go! “Opening Legionnaire Level We’ve looked at our numbers, and concluded that we can afford international shipping if we reduce the size of our print run. That means FHC will go out of print sooner and be less profitable in the long run, but that we’re not leaving our international fans out in the cold. (The print run will still be big enough to have copies for distribution to game stores and to sell on the Herogames.com website after the kickstarter for a while.) So we’ve added the LEGIONNAIRE level at $60 for a signed book,… Read more »
