High School Hearts

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.99

High School Hearts is a fun, light tabletop role-playing game of high schoolers dealing with love, rivalry, and the rest of the emotional roller-coaster of adolescence.

It's easy to play, makes fun of high school, and uses standard playing cards.

This release includes PDF, Mobi, ePub, and azw3 releases for all major eReaders, and a PDF of print-and-play tokens (not required, but useful).

Here are the basics of the game:

Characters don't have stats, as such. Instead, characters are made up of two words (like “clumsy cheerleader” or “shy valedictorian”) and have relationships, represented by tokens. More tokens on an NPC = a stronger relationship. Each NPC also has a separate maturity score, represented by tokens. Players also start with 5 Drama tokens, which they can spend to change relationships.

During the game, one PC is the “spotlight” of the scene. That player chooses a crisis for the scene, the character at the center of the crisis, and the physical location where the episode's set. The player then spends his or her Drama tokens to draw playing cards, which are used to determine if the relationship in the scene changes and/or any of the characters add maturity.

Hearts increase relationship intensity while diamonds decrease it. Spades increase maturity while clubs decrease it.

The value of all cards drawn are totalled and divided by 4 to determine how many Drama tokens the player gets back. This will give players even more Drama over time.

The rules include a sample of play with a handful of characters.

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.
