The Fan Project

he Hero Fanon Project (HFP) is dedicated to producing free professional-quality resources in support of the Hero System. At this time the project is dedicated to the fantasy genre, but may expand to include other genres at a later date. We do not want to develop materials that will hinder future hero development efforts, or that will potentially undercut DOJ's sales. Instead, we will focus on the kinds of materials that are nice to have, but are prohibitively expensive for small companies to produce. Additionally, the main subtext of the project is rendering the Hero System accessible to inexperienced gamemasters, and gamemasters who do not have the inclination (or time) to develop their own materials. Our primary focus will be articles containing adventures, characters, and setting material. All ideas are welcome.


A new message board has been created for discussing the project. You can find it here- Cobcroft 2007/01/08 14:17

The Fan Project Page is now open for business. Project proposals should be put on the “Discussion Page.”

This area is for posting current work for criticism and copyediting. It is also a way for us to track progress on current projects. Only projects that have formally been adopted as collaborative projects (on some level) should go here. The Organizer will open a general “Project Page” for all such endeavors that can then be expanded upon. The Project Page should contain the name of the primary project owner(s), a brief description of what is happening, an outline so people know the project will entail, and a revisions section for people to track task completion.

Hero Designer

If you are using Hero Designer for your characters, I did create an export template that saves a text file in Wiki format - that you can copy and paste straight into the wiki and have it display in a readable format.

You can download it herePeter Cobcroft 2007/01/12 12:09
