Loved the b/w art in the Index Card RPG Sets, but the full colour artwork of "Heroes" is absolutely gorgeous!
The heroes themselves are great as well, very inspirationalyl written and highly usable. Well done, Sir!

I really dig this! First of all, the art is always out of this world from Runehammer, and it has certainly been kicked up to 11 here. The character art is just beautiful.

Secondly, the story of each character is brief enough to be easily read, but rich enough to draw you into their world. Not a word is wasted, which I really like. The layout of the characters' attitude, stats, fighting style and the like are really well organize and v system neutral. I can easily use this supplement for D&D or ICRPG or other games, and I will certainly use this format for writing up my NPCs in the future.

This is great. If I could review it, I'd give it 5 stars, for sure. They hits just keep on rolling from Runehammer.

This thing is amazing, I'm trying to leave an actual review, but Drive Thru is apparently having a huge problem. The Characters have really great backstories, and I love that it's system neutral. All of these will make awesome NPC's, Heros, or fallen Heros if your an evil DM... and you are an evil DM.

I don't think the Word 'Disapointed' is appropriate here, because what you get is great artwork and the tokens alone are worth the price. BUT ICRPG is your staple, your flagship. So it feels a waisted opportunity that you don't include a custom ICRPG character sheet for each character.even if the stories of these characters originated in other game systems I personally felt it deserves to have ICRPG write ups/conversions for each . This is not to take away from what you did, the descriptions were awesome. I am a little on the fence about how the book is supposed to be rpg system agnostic yet you give stat adjustment tidbits. they seem to not fit , what are the stats adjusted for? D&D? ICRPG? COC? if you are going all fluff, then don't throw in tidbits of crunch. go all in or not at all.

thanks for the purchase, Dave. Yep, using 'universal' stat suggestions is between "fluff" and "crunch" that is accurate. I wanted to make very loose suggestions for GM's, not pin the ideas on any one system, even ICRPG.

Is this product to use with Index Card RPG or is system free? Does it have mechanics for ICRPG? Seems pretty cool, but the previews are not working :(

yeh fixing this bug with preview.
The heroes are presented for any system. The stat builds are simple STR/DEX/CON/INT/WIS/CHA type structures with no specific system info.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
