Boon Cards - A Hero Kids Compatible Supplement

Boon Cards - A Hero Kids Compatible Supplement

Watermarked PDF

Boons are mentioned in the Hero Kids rules, but not much more is offered regarding them or their use in the game. The cards in this collection fill that gap.

This is a layered PDF which allows you to choose between a space or fantasy theme, or select no background at all for a less ink-thirsty printout.

Unlike Items, which are special objects discovered by the characters in their adventures, Boons can be handed out by the game master any time as a reward for good deeds, clever ideas, fair play, teamwork, or other laudable player behavior. A boon can be granted by an NPC within the story, or as a “meta-game” reward by the GM to encourage play.

Boons should be handed out generously. Players are more likely to use them and then look for ways to earn more. The GM can encourage players to nominate each other for a boon when they help each other, show good sportsmanship or roleplay in an entertaining or heroic manner.

There are 24 cards across 6 pages in the main collection. Print each page twice on card stock and carefully cut them out to create a deck of 48. Shuffle the deck and lay it face down. When a boon is awarded, the player picks the top card, granting a random one-time benefit. A boon is dicarded when it is used. Additionally, there are 4 “Special Favor” cards and 4 blank cards which can be used to create custom boons for use in (or outside!) the game. Advanced players may also want to invent their own boons with the blank cards and draw a picture to represent the boon they have created. 

Happy gaming!

I'm sorry you are having this problem. I am actually not in control of delivery. However, I will try to contact publisher support and bring it to their attention. I would suggest you contact Drivethrurpg support and do the same.

I just re-uploaded the file with a new file name. Perhaps it will appear to you as an "update"(?). Post a reply here if you are still unable to get it.

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.
