Hero! This Fantasy Hero Classic Essentials Bundle presents the core HERO System tabletop roleplaying game rulebooks for the Fourth and Fifth Edition Fantasy Hero lines from Hero Games, 1990-2009. The HERO System underpins Champions, The Super Roleplaying Game. These endlessly flexible rules let you create any magical spell, item, or character you can imagine. Fantasy Hero works well for all kinds of fantasy: high, low, urban, sword and sorcery, and everything else.

For just US$7.95 you get all five titles in this offer's Core Collection (retail value $44) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete Fantasy Hero corebook for HERO System Fifth Edition, plus the Fantasy Hero Grimoire and Grimoire II: Lost Magic and the bestiary Monsters, Minions, and Marauders -- and we've thrown in the Hero Sidekick rules, in case you've misplaced your Fifth Edition rulebook.

And if you pay more than this offer's threshold price of $18.21, you'll level up and also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with seven more titles worth an additional $53, including the 1990 Fantasy Hero campaign book for Champions Fourth Edition (the "Big Blue Book") along with both 4E Companions; both volumes of the Asian Bestiary; and the location book Fantasy Hero Battlegrounds along with Map Archive I - Martial Arts and Fantasy, which has floor plans for all the locations in Battlegrounds. (We previously presented the Archive in our original November 2013 HERO System Bundle.)

Then check our companion offer now in progress, Fantasy Hero Settings, with campaign sourcebooks compatible with any edition of Fantasy Hero.
