We know well the story of Poe’s Raven. But what came before?

Is it bird – or something more, forced to walk the earth in darkness evermore? You may yet learn the answer first hand. For in Nevermore, those who fall become transformed, turned to ravens, unable to win, as they struggle to regain their human form – yet able to bring doom to others. Will you rise to power or simply be Nevermore?

Nevermore is a casual-style, card-drafting game in which you quickly build your hand each round, collecting cards you want and poisoning your opponent’s hand by passing along cards you think they can’t use. Whoever holds the most of a given suit, gains the power of that suit to attack, heal, acquire Light or Shadow magicks and score victory points.

Hero System: Fantasy Hero Complete: 6th Edition

$30.00

 

Hero Games is proud to announce a new core Fantasy Hero roleplaying game book! Like our previously published core book Champions Complete, Fantasy Hero Complete will be a 240 page softcover with color cover, black and white interior, table of contents and index. It will be a stand-alone product containing all of the rules necessary to play Fantasy Hero with no other book required, but compatible with all Hero System 6th edition books. Fantasy Hero Complete will include spells, monsters, magic items, and a sample adventure in addition to all of the Skills, Powers, and Complications useful for the fantasy genre. Experienced players will find it to be a handy, easy-to-use addition to their Fantasy Hero library, while new players will be able to sit down with a copy, create characters, and start having fun!

 

Fantasy Hero Complete is being written by veteran Hero System author Michael Surbrook, with an original cover by Sam Flegal, interior layout by Ruben Smith-Zempel, and cartography by Keith Curtis. With thirty years of play behind it, our goal is to include everything Fantasy Hero gamers need (except pencil, paper, and a handful of six-sided dice), and nothing they don’t. New players will love the unmatched freedom of the Hero System, which allows them to create and play exactly the hero they imagine. Longtime fans will appreciate a tight, concise new approach, presenting the full game system at a fraction of its former length.
