From Bloat Games, the creators of SURVIVE THIS!! Zombies! and The Zombie Hack comes an all new roleplaying game, The VigilanteHack, based off the popular game by David Black, The Black Hack.

The Vigilante Hack takes the rules and mechanics of The Black Hack out of a fantasy setting and applies them to the modern day.  The streamlined, rules-light system, allows for quick and easy use of play and while still providing a full game experience.

Players can choose from one of the six Survivor Classes:  Archer, Dark Avenger, Martial Artist, Mercenary, Protégé & True Vigilante.

More about The Vigilante Hack:

VIGILANTE (plural Vigilantes)
1. An outlaw who punishes lawbreakers personally and illegally instead of relying on the appointed law of enforcers of society. 
The Vigilante Hack is not a superhero game.  While yes, some vigilantes in The Vigilante Hack are considered heroes and some wear costumes, including capes and masks, there is nothing “super” about them.  They have no X-ray vision.  They cannot run faster than cars.  They cannot leap buildings in a single bound and they are not bullet proof.
The vigilantes in The Vigilante Hack are normal people, the same as you and I, who have become fed up with the lawless individuals, thugs, organized crime and villains and have decided to do something about it!  They have trained hard, sometimes to the point of obsession, and have struck back at those very people who are ruining their city.  Think Batman, not Superman.  Think The Punisher, not Spider-Man.  Think Batgirl not Wonder Woman.
Being a vigilante can be a thankless and even deadly calling.  You may get arrested.  You may pick a fight that you can’t win.  You may find yourself looking down the barrel of a villain’s gun or you may even cross the line of right and wrong and become the exact thing that you started out trying to stop.

To my shame, I still haven't run this game yet, though I've read it several times. Looks perfect for Daredevil/Punisher/Arrow style vigilante adventuring, with maybe a smidge of Dirty Harry or Death Wish. I highly recommend doing a Google search [...]

On it's surface, The Vigilante Hack by Bloat Games seems like just another supers game. The cover is rather plain (which a thing with The Black Hack and it's alternate versions) and features a Captain America-esque woman. However, this is not a supers [...]

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.
