The rules presented in d6 Hero adapt the generic, universal d6 RPG rules to a superhero genre. Characters have one additional Attribute, namely Reaction Adjustment--this helps the hero when they interact with the press, police, or even alien beings. Super powers are assigned a "Level", indicating a dice roll (e.g., 1d6 or 2d3). This Level indicates the amount of damage caused or prevented by the power. The document presents several types of powers and discusses how super heroes might acquire their powers and status.
