I've been playing roleplaying games since 1984, and the HERO System specifically since 1990. I've used the HERO System to run games in a large variety of genres in more campaigns than I can conveniently remember, some short lived and some lasting two or more years long.
Other parts of this site provide specific information on various genre related forays of mine using the HERO System, but this document collects a variety of expositions, musings, thoughts, and reviews I've written related to the HERO System as a roleplaying game rather than specific applications of it.
Any opinions or conclusions drawn are my own, and are not necessarily representative of the HERO System roleplaying community in general, and certainly do not represent an official viewpoint.
