HERO CRAFT HUB (Super Hero Base for Dungeon Craft)
Welcome to the Hero Craft Hub! This is the thread for the quasi-official Super Hero Base for Dungeon Craft.
What is a Base? A Base is the stuff you need to make a design without looking anywhere for additional materials. The Dungeon Craft download is a Base (1e/FRUA Advanced Dungeons & Dragons). Bases include the databases needed and enough art and sounds to make a simple design.
This is the place to discuss everything for Hero Craft and as such I am going to updated the next following posts for various key aspects and when each is finished it will contain links to the respective downloads. This post will contain a link to the Base download when it is ready.databases attached to this post updated June 13, 2016
Sections I want to look at include:
Default Art (frames, cursors, etc)
Small Pics/Big Pics
I envision the final Base to contain the first six items and a subset of the last three (core art) with add-on packs that will include monster/NPC data with accompanying art for icons, small/big pics and sprites (something like "Marvel Heroes", "Dark Horse Villains", etc)
Everyone is welcome to comment, critique and contribute! I will do as much as I need to do to make sure that Hero Craft Base is released.Where to find Hero Craft Base:
--not available yet-- (2017 01 23)Races edited 2017-01-23
I am no long working off of SHUA as my base (but it is still my inspiration).
Hero Craft are as follows:
Alien, Human, Meta
Amazon, Android, Angel, Asgardian, Atlantean, Cyborg, Dark-Elf, Demon, God,
Gorilla, Inhuman, Kherubim, Kree, Kryptonian, Lemurian, Martian, Monster, Mutant,
Rannian, Robot, Sentinel, Shi'aran, Skrull, Spider Alien, Thanagarian, Viltrumite
Racial ability scores arenow being handled differently - I am using 8 scores instead of 6, as I am basing my work on Mutants & Masterminds 3e. I am also using a point pool system, so PCs will start out with all 11s.Classes edited 2017-03-01
Hero Craft classes are as follows:
Adventurer, Guardian, Investigator, Mystic
Agent, Assassin, Burglar, Champion, Criminal Mastermind, Criminal, Journalist,

Multi-class options have been removed.Items edited 2017-03-01
I've gathered a list of items to make, and have finished all of the ones for generic characters, i.e. the ones that a player will make. I have started the process of making the unique items needed for unique NPCs.Monsters/NPCs edited 2017-03-01
I am doing unique individuals as NPCs and generics (eg goons) as monsters. There are about 40 generic types - animals, civilians, government employees, monsters, etc. I plan on doing 100 NPCs - 50 heroes and 50 villains (25 each of DC and Marvel in each category). To see how things are going to work, I have done 2 NPC villains, Abomination and Solomon Grundy.Special Abilities/Spells/Abilities edited 2017-003-01
I estimate that I have figured out about 98% of the SAs that I will need and have scripted about 5% of them.
Magical spells will work like other powers, which gives the advantage of magic users not needing to rely on a limited list of memorized spells.Default Art (frames, cursors, etc)
640x480 default art - http://manikus.reonis.com/HeroCraft/misc.html
At this time only frames for the default 640x480 resolution exist.
I want to strongly push using a square viewport and will create frames for it as desired.Icons
There are a small number of icons by myself, Uatu and Nol Drek, as well as ones I've created from around the web.
Some of the icons are here - http://manikus.reonis.com/HeroCraft/icons.htmlhttp://ua.reonis.com/index.php?topic=1338.0http://ua.reonis.com/index.php?topic=1158.0Small Pics/Big Pics
A number of small pics for the default 640x480 resolutioin are already made.
There are so many source images available, I have no plans for converting SHUA art.
