Welcome to Paragons! 

The Super Powered RPG Battle Game!

So what’s a Super Powered RPG Battle Game?

Simple: a streamlined collection of rules for running super powered battles and roleplaying superhero stories.

As a battle game, Paragons! can be used to play out comic book slugfests between heroes and villains that you create. The combat system is a dice game all by itself, one that requires strategy, teamwork, and the ability to outthink your opponent. You can play Paragons! as a battle game, even if roleplaying games aren’t your thing.

But since you’re here, you should know that Paragons! is also a toolbox for roleplaying super powered adventures. We call it a toolbox because it only includes the rules of the game. We’ve left out a lot of the fluff normally found in roleplaying games. We’ve given you the tools, and assume you know how to use them.

However you decide to play Paragons!, we hope you enjoy!

This title includes two copies of the complete game, one in full color and one in printer friendly back and white.

About the Art

Those of you familiar with our other superhero-themed game, Prowlers & Paragons, will recognize the art of famed comic book artist Jerry Gaylord. We decided to use many of the same images in order to keep this game as affordable as possible, and we wanted to make sure you knew that before purchasing the game. Thanks!

How is this different from Prowlers & Paragons? The blurb isn't helping me to differentiate the two.

Thanks!

PUBLISHER
Hey, Travis:

Thanks for asking. Long and short: Paragons! a supers game that shares artwork with P&P, but it's a completely different game (because we are nuts). Unlike P&P, Paragons! has "gamier" combat mechanics that involve building up a pool of dice and allocating them among speed, offense, and defense. Prowlers & Paragons fights feel like rpg fights (rules light rpg fights, but still). Paragons fights feel like a dice game. You are thinking about what you want to do in the game world, but you are also considering how you are going to allocate your dice, and whether you want to use them now or save them up. It feels like a game, which is why some of our players want to just grab a pair of heroes and fight it out.

We like lots of different kinds of games, so we wanted one supers game to be a little light and narrative, and one to be a bit more tactical and "gamey." Paragons! is the latter.

I hope that helps, and thanks for asking!...See more

Format
Original electronic
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.
