Enter Post-Surge America, where racial tensions are at an all time high, immigration is a matter of immediate life and death for all involved, and you'd kill for a job at the burger joint around the corner.

We are the Newcomers! We've fled from the destruction of our worlds and stumbled onto Earth, circa 2018. Our new lives are complicated by our demi-human traits and our cultural differences, but we must preservere.

America is Hard! Nobody is waiting to tell us how this new world works. Legal issues stand in the way of our citizenship at every turn. Corporations are leery of investing in us. Jobs are hard to get when your hands are claws.

Big Business is Scary! While we've escaped the obvious evil of The Great Dark One, we're unprepared for the insidious control the corporate world exerts on us all. Are we consumers, products, or both?


Corruption is Rampant! Behind a veneer of politeness, everyone's trying to get something. Who can you trust when so much of our livelihoods depends on social currency we weren't given in the first place, or money we're not allowed or able to earn?

Our Stories are Wild! Life ranges from amusingly disastrous to sickeningly grotesque. Which will our story be? Will we struggle to keep a stable job or struggle to keep our sanity?

America: Land of Monsters is an expansion for Heroines of the First Age, with a fully-fleshed setting, 7 Modern Archetypes, 24 new adversaries, and extensive rules for dealing with the hardest parts of life in the States.

Trigger Warning: Racism, Domestic Violence, Discrimination, Sex, Profanity

I'm kind of sad it's not called "Heroines of the (First + Last)/2 Age."

It also could have been "Heroines in Middle Age."

Is this ever going to be released in a print format?

Yes, we expect in a couple of weeks when we've reviewed our proof copy.

Fantastic! I'll probably wait to pick up the print/pdf combo at that point. Incidentally, it's "Monsters in America", but does that Oni cop have a Union Jack on her vest?

Yep. There's material in the book describing that you're not limited to the States, but that things are different overseas. The Surge is a global phenomenon.

Huh, Modern more 'realistic' take on Teenagers From Outer Space?

Heh, yes, the starry-eyed teenage catgirl getting her first credit card particularly put me in mind of A2's supplement "The Landing".

"One card to rule the mall..."

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.
