  3. Converting 3.x to HERO: got to start somewhere (spells and certain core concepts)

    SOOO, I like to have a pet project sometimes. I WAS working on a board game, but kind of stuck on that right now, so I decided to pick up converting D&D 3.x/pathfinder material to HERO.

  5. FF HERO: reinstatement

    It has been a long while since I have posted anything.

    However, now I have me a new party for my FF HERO campaign, so I thought I'd post summaries of that game.

    Now we started from the beginning rather than from where I last left off. So it is interesting to see how they approach the adventure.

    Instead of posting EVERYTHING that has happened, I will just introduce our new characters.
