This second edition of Hero Wars contains the contents of Hero Wars (ISS 1101) and the former Narrator’s Book (ISS 1104), which have been revised, re-edited, and laid out in a completely new format. It contains the complete rules for Hero Wars, including beginner-friendly Character Creation, new rules for Hero Bands, simplified Contest resolution, and streamlined Magic systems. New scenarios, a new heroquest, and over a dozen hero bands help to breathe new life into the rules for players and narrators alike. All previous Hero Wars supplements remain fully compatible with these revised rules.
