Hero High, Revised Edition

Multiple File Formats

High-school heroes!

The Shadow Academy is on the loose downtown, but the prom is tonight and, worse yet, you’ve got a make-up test tomorrow! But then nobody said things were simple at Hero High!

Teenaged superheroes have hard lives ... just ask them. After all, being a normal teenager is difficult enough: school, work, parents, friends, dating, and more without complicating matters by adding super-powers and a secret identity to the mix!

Hero High takes a look at the genre of teen heroes (and villains!) for the Mutants & Masterminds, Third Edition RPG. It contains everything you need to run a teen hero series of your own, with all the trials and tribulations that entails. There’s everything from an overview of the genre to breakdowns of its components and how to use them to create your own unique setting and series.

There’s even an interview with Marvel’s Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, who offers his insights on teen heroes and why they’re so fun and compelling!

Hero High is revised and expanded for Mutants & Masterminds, Third Edition and includes information on the students and faculty of the Claremont Academy, where the heroes of tomorrow receive their training!  It also includes the villainous Shadow Academy and the troubled teens who call it home. Plus, there are a dozen heroic archetypes so you and your friends can start playing right away!

Go to the head of the class with Hero High!

I wonder if I could modify this for college-age storytelling.

Uh... How can you just score one point in a football game?

You can score... 2 points (touchback), 3 points (field goal), 6 points (touchdown), 7 points (touchdown + PAT - point-after attempt) or 8 points (touchdown + two-point conversion).

What does this do better than the previous Hero High (other than being 3rd edition)?

I assumed it was updated for 3rd edition. I got the original one in a batch of PDFs I bought a little while back (or somewhere) and I thought it was older, like for 1st edition. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong and I'm really new to the world of Mutants & Masterminds and started out by buying up whatever I could find in PDF.

Who holds prom on a school night? Or a make-up test on a Saturday or Sunday?

How's that for a suspension of belief? A game about super-powered teenagers and I nitpick the logistics of prom and a make-up test.

Looking forward to picking up this one.

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.
