THIS IS THE SAME VERSION AS THAT LISTED UNDER LAKESIDE GAMES

Hughesville (not to be confused with that town where Christmas was almost stolen) is a happy little suburb of Chicago sometime during the 1980s. Home to Hughesville High, Hughesville is that town you see in most every 80s teen movie, especially those by John Hughes. It’s a content little place during a content little time when Reagan was president, America was the most totally excellent nation that ever was, and all was good and right with the world, at least to the extent that anyone in America cared to pay attention. Greed was good, communism was bad, and music videos were starting to become “a thing” thanks to some no-name cable channel.

Hughesville High is a roleplaying game about high school kids in the 80s. High school kids with unusual powers and abilities, sure, but high school kids nonetheless. It’s a lighthearted game intended to evoke the classic teen movies of the 80s, with the modern-day teen-monster shtick and other weirdness thrown into the mix for good measure. Unlike today’s teen-monster genre, however, Hughes isn’t supposed to be taken even slightly seriously. Hughesville High is much more Weird Science and much less Twilight.

The characters in Hughesville High are ordinary teens living through the strange days of the 1980s, trying their best to live normal lives while dealing with the abnormal situations that keep coming their way. They may be aliens, monsters, robots (yes, robots), or whatever else, but more than that, they’re teenagers, looking to survive high school, score a date for the prom, and avoid doing anything that could end up on their Permanent Record.

Powered by the rules-light and narrative heavy TNT game engine, Hughesville High is a fast-playing almost no prep time game.  If you have an hour or two to play and nothing ready, if you want a break from dungeon crawling and running through shadows, if you just want to have some fun in a roleplaying game that doesn't involve killing your way across an entire continent, come try Hughesville High!

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.
