Fantasy Hero (1st edition, 1st printing), softback roleplaying game, by Steve Peterson
“Play the Adventure Eternal! A game where warriors are bold, magic inspires wonder, and monster is spelled with a capital “M.” Let your imagination soar into the realm of Fantasy Hero. Create exactly the character you want to play, choosing from hundreds of skills and abilities. The combat system is fast-paced and easy to use, but alive with a feeling of reality. Tactics and skill are more important than dice rolls in the struggle for life and death. Rules are included for creating any spell or item of power from your favourite story or film. Magic is now as unique and creative as you are.
The Sourcebook shows you how to adapt your current world or create a new one of your very own. There’s even a solo adventure so you can start playing the basic game when you open this book. Later, you can add as many optional rules as you want. This is a game that you will grow with, but never grow out of.
The Hero System is a series of games that work alone or together. Character’s from any game can be played in all the others. The Hero System is the most versatile set of modular rules ever designed – it can enhance any game you now play.
Fantasy Hero is a game of imagination. It’s everything you could want in a game and more. The magic has come back to gaming with Fantasy Hero!”
