"It wasn't hell. It was the courtyard of hell. It was a maelstrom of noise and hot, splitting steel... the rattling of machine guns never stops... wounded men refuse to leave, and the men don't want to be relieved after seven days and seven nights... the battlefield is still an appalling thing to see, in its mud, ruin, dead, and its blight and desolation."

--Matthew Halton, War Correspondent
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

The Courtyard of Hell is an adventure campaign for GODLIKE: Superhero Roleplaying in a World on Fire, the critically acclaimed game of deadly action and superheroic courage in World War 2.

It's late December, 1943, just after the bloody crossing of the Moro River. The players' superpowered Talents accompany the soldiers of the 2nd Brigade, the Loyal Edmonton Regiment, the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada, and Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, as they attempt to wrest the town of Ortona from a regiment of elite German paratroopers. It's a battle so ferocious that Churchill will call it "Little Stalingrad." It's a battle that the survivors will never forget.

The Courtyard of Hell includes:

  • Guidelines for character creation and seven pregenerated characters, ready to play.
  • Tips for presenting large-scale combat scenes.
  • New Canadian and German weapons and vehicles.
  • "One Roll Cityfight" rules for detailed encounters.
  • Enough adventures for months of thrilling gaming.

The Courtyard of Hell is written by Allan Goodall, author of the Godlike campaign Black Devils Brigade and the Wild Talents setting book This Favored Land.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
