Be a hero - Introduction to roleplay


This introduction is not designed for game-masters, it is for the players. They are developing the protagonists! It is in their hands, to provide main characters who are more than machines to solve the problems at hand. Even though the game-master prepared the framework for the story, the heroes of the players are the real designers of the adventure.  If they accept the challenge.

How to make this come true is, in my opinion, the question which new roleplayers should seek a guide for, before they enter their first adventure.

This is such a basic guide for fresh roleplayers as well as an invitation for some veterans of the hobby, to evaluate the connection adventure-game master-player once more.  What can and should be part of playing a hero? That is, what I am going to address.

“Be a hero is” an English version of my German book “Heldenspiel”. I hope, I was able to provide an acceptable translation.

*** Everybody should have access to an introduction to roleplay. Therefore the complete title can be read in the preview for free. If you would like to have the PDF or if you prefer to support me, please consider to buy it. ***

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.
