Had my first go at running a Hero System game last night. Learnt a number of lessons:
1) Never assume that a scenario you’ve picked up from a book has all the necessary stats in it
2) Make sure you’ve got a handle on the basic mechanics!
3) Don’t leave creating a pregenerated character until the last minute – especially in Hero System…
& 4) Never invite a new-comer who has never played an rpg before to an evening where you’ve failed on numbers 1, 2 & 3 – especially when 3 is his character.
That said, it was good fun and I think I can see now the scope of this system once you’ve got used to it.
