New Gods for an Old Town

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.30

In a world where superpowers have been with us for generations, four heroes have risen to the top of the heap in London, acting as its unofficial guardians, but each of the four pursues their own ends through their own means. Being on the same side of the law doesn't always mean working together and when it comes to the crunch, whose vision for the city will prevail?

This is a preview and taster of Just Heroes (a superheroic hack of Apocalypse World) which is intended for use in one-off games & convention sessions. As MC, you can use this pack to create a player-lead narrative, where each PC will attempt to do things their own way, with or without the support of the others: sometimes they'll work together, but sometimes they'll be at odds with each other.

The pack contains the following five pdfs:

  • New Gods for an Old Town: a brief version of the rules, containing all the Basic & Peripheral moves for Just Heroes, plus leading questions to ask the PCs and tips on weaving a story from their contributions.
  • Dr. Dusk: A PC playbook for a tortured defender of the street, using stealth as his weapon.
  • Lady Smoke: A PC playbook for an other-dimensional princess searching our world for her lost treasures but still living a life of privilege amongst us.
  • Steel Spring: A PC playbook for an urban warrior whose super-suit gives her greatly enhanced speed & agility.
  • The Snowdrop: A PC playbook for a fun-loving guy cursed with a cold heart, who uses his icy powers to freeze crime in it's tracks.

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.
