ADVENTURE AMONG THE STARS!

 

Sleek starships, strange planets, unusual aliens, weird mental powers, blaster pistols, time travel — all these, and more, are part of the amazing universe of Science Fiction. Star Hero discusses and describes the Science Fiction genre for gaming, and shows how to create characters, campaigns, starships, and other elements of Science Fiction using the HERO System rules. It includes:

 

a complete review of the Science Fiction genre, from the grittiest Low Science Fiction and Military Science Fiction stories to the most extravagant Space Opera adventures, with guidelines and suggestions for simulating each part of the genre using the HERO System rules

 

an extensive section on creating Science Fiction characters using the HERO System, including Templates for common species, character archetypes, and backgrounds

 

discussions about alien life and civilizations, planets, and stars incorporating both the latest real-world discoveries and the artistic license Science Fiction stories require, with random generation tables to help GMs create entire star sectors and worlds quickly and easily

 

a chapter on technology, with example weapons and devices, and including rules for establishing and altering “technology levels” for civilizations and campaigns

 

a look at starships and space stations, and how to create them using the HERO System rules

 

a review of esoteric subjects like psionics and time travel

 

a comprehensive chapter on gamemastering Science Fiction games

 

Whatever type of Science Fiction game you like to play, and however you like to play it, Star Hero helps you make it even better!

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.
