The latest in the Hero Games line of genre books, Ninja Hero discusses and describes the martial arts genre for gaming, and shows how to create chracters, campaigns, wondrous weapons, and other elements of martial arts films using the HERO System rules.

It includes:

    • a complete review of the martial arts genre and its five subgenres - Realistic, Cinetmatic, Wuxia, Video Games, and Anime - with guidelines and suggestions for simulating each part of the genres using the HERO System.
    • an extensive section on creating martial arts characters using the HERO System, including Package Deals for major character archetypes such as the Samurai or Chinese Knight-Errant.
    • suggested rules additions and variations for simulating marial combat in the various subgenres.
    • comprehensive chapter on gamemastering martial arts games.
    • a detailed sourcebook including maps, five sample campaigns, nearly two dozens characters for the various subgenres, sample magic weapons, and plot seeds.


Whatever the type of martial arts action you prefer, Ninja Hero helps you simulate it in your games!

Ninja Hero is usable as a stand-alone product, but does not include the HERO System rules, only discussions of how to apply those rules. For the rules themselves, you’ll need the HERO System 5th Edition core rulebook.

Scanned image
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.
