YOUR KIDS WILL BE HEROES, BE A HERO TO THEM!

Outage Map


Have you ever sat at a tiny table drinking tea with a queen? Have you fought off a horde of couch pirates with a valiant young captain by your side? Have you ever searched the wilds of a backyard jungle for buried treasure with a team of tiny explorers?. If so, then you’ve already played this game. This book is your guide to play in the world of Power Outage.  
Power Outage is a world where kids get to be heroes, and you get to guide them on their journeys. It’s a sprawling landscape that gives you complete control of the adventures you want to create. If you’re interested in playing a game that feels like a classic comic book, try the futuristic neo-Japanese metropolis of Shorai City. If you want to run a gritty detective mystery, then plumb the depths of the Atomnyy Zavod’s atomic-lit alleys. Want to attend a school of sandwich wizards in the heart of a sentient forest? The Overgrowth is calling.

Reviews, and Interviews!

“For many of us parents, the Holy Grail of game design is the child-friendly RPG. With Power Outage, Bebarce El-Tayib has launched a well-equipped expedition upon that sacred quest, which demonstrates that his love of gaming is only matched by his love of children. But it’s left for you, the players, to imagine how it will end!” - Jason Walters, Indie Press Revolution

Thank you for the constructive feedback! I've fixed the preview to show pages now. While I still don't think the preview does the entire book justice, it does include the entire quickstart guide and intro. Hope you like what you see, either way, thanks for being awesome!

Format
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.
