I decided to take the time to write up a standard level hero for a Fantasy Hero game to show how Hero System handles the Fantasy Genre. Standard level heroic characters are built using 175 base with 50 points in Complications, which makes them equal to a first level character in other systems. The character is a pretty straight forward one that uses three Templates as a basis. The first template is the racial one which is an Elf, the second one is a location one where she comes from the Underdark type of environment, and the final one is her profession which is a Paladin. Jyslin has two magic pools, one for her Elven magic and the other for her Paladin magic. She does have a warhorse. A note concerning the character is that she only has weapons and armor with no other equipment. Feel free to ask questions or comments regarding the character.

Hero System uses 3d6 to resolve attacks and skill rolls. A player must roll equal to or under the rolls presented. Attached is an explanation of the Hero System in 2 pages.

I browsed over the sheet and it still looks fun to play (last time I cracked open a Hero book was a few years ago). Is this using Hero 6 or 5?
