From the Introduction:
Fantasy Hero is an RPG used to create and play out the adventures seen in fantasy fiction, be it an animated film, comic, live-action film, manga (Japanese comic), novel, webcomic, or what have you. With it, you can be pretty much anything you can imagine, from a stay-at-home halfling pressed into service as a burglar, to a dimension traveling sorcerer armed with an enchanted black sword of dubious loyalty. It is also part of a larger rules set, known as the HERO System. First published in 1981 as Champions (an RPG for playing superheroes), the HERO System has gone through a number of revisions since then, with the more recent version of the game engine—known as Sixth Edition—coming out in 2009.
