  3. convert 3.x D&D to HERO: races of destiny

    like with prestige classes, I didn't do ALL of the races. Some seemed lame. Others didn't seem worth it in the context of HERO.

  5. convert 3.x D&D to HERO: prestige classes from DMG, location, and race books

    it is AMAZING how many prestige classes are meeh in the context of free-building in HERO. There are some things that are new and not included in the classes already covered, but they aren't worth covering. I might if a player so wishes it, but I am finding out, I will only cover classes that seem interesting.

    The cryokineticist is really the first P class from a location book (frost fell), so it got covered. There are interesting bits though.
