Creator's Note: Hey everyone! This game is reading pretty rough right now--hence it's in a "beta" stage. I am working on the next version, but real life is making this work slow. I apologize for the prolonged update. The update will be free to anyone who bought this first draft. It will fix a lot of the mechanics and make things more streamlined for ease of play and narration. Just bear with me, and you'll have a solid RPG in your library soon enough. Thank you for your patience and support!


The Hero’s Die is a table-top Role-Playing Game (RPG) that uses light mechanics to help you create an adventure with a strong narrative. The players are the Heroes of the adventure. The Heroes decide how they will act when confronted with a variety of challenges and puzzles, all while attempting to fulfill a plot and accomplish a goal. In The Hero’s Die, the players create a story centered around their personalized Heroes on an adventure of their making.

Things that set THD apart from other RPG systems:

Narrative control - THD is governed by two guiding principles: Narrative compatibility & Narrative intent.

Hero Creation - Heroes are designed to be uniquely yours. Heroes grow through the use of Attributes and Skills, which are developed through gameplay. Race, stat blocks, and stereotypes are discouraged. The focus of the adventure is on you.

Villain Generator - Villains are designed to reflect a variety of difficulties that can suit the various needs of adventuring Heroes. They can be intricately planned or spawned on a moment's notice. The goal is for the villains to help promote the story onward.

HD Lite - For those who do not have the time or desire to prepare or read through modules and campaigns. HD Lite takes the core mechanics of THD and allows the players to experience a randomized one shot that will be unlike any adventure they've encountered before. With the diverse characteristics and high level of personalization, no two HD Lite games will ever be the same.
