Hero System RPG Mod (Beta)

We pushed this out earlier than was planned to help people keep playing their games during the Coronavirus problem.

Because of this the video's we had planned to show how to use the advanced features and transfer of characters from Hero Designer have not been done yet. We will be getting them released in small 5-10 min videos showing the advanced feature over the course of the two weeks. If you have any issues with this please come find us on the Hero System Discord in the Tabletop Simulator chat.

You can find the Hero Designer export file here ..

If you find any issues with the export files please post a comment here or on the discord above for assistance.

The next version is almost finished testing and is being used actively by a number of groups. It is possible using the "create a dice roll" ability to make knockback calculations and rolls.

Looks great. Any chance of adding knockback calculations with the dice roller?

Hello Panpiper .. seek me out on the Discord and we can talk about if it will work for you and give you some help!

Thank you for doing this. I absolutely love Hero System and have for nearly 40 years. I dream of someday actually getting to play it again (on a regular basis, other than PbP). The chance of ever finding an actual real life tabletop Hero game is vanishingly remote, but this could be nearly as good. I just hope my brain is sufficient to figure out the nuts and bolts. It's nowhere near as agile as it once was. If I can get this working for me, you've just majorly increased the quality of my life.

Hi s.gottlieb .. It sounds like you might have an old version of the JsonExporter or a complex character. The very latest version is v2.3 and is being uploaded this weekend. It is on my Github here: -
