In Hit the Streets: Defend the Block, you and your friends will create the neighborhood where your Super-Powered Beings live and work. You'll create rivals who represent the threats to your home, and you'll power up to defend. your. block....are you ready?

The vacant streets below your apartment echo back a hard truth...your neighborhood, it isn't safe anymore, is it? How did this happen so quickly? The city is going down. You see it. Everyone does. Crime is everywhere, corruption around every corner, and people are stuck.

Your super-powered abilities mean you have a responsibility to do something about it, but you can't fight back alone. This neighborhood needs more than one person to take up the struggle. With powers big and small, your team may be the last hope this neighborhood has. If you can't save it, no one will.

Hit the Streets: Defend the Block is a complete role-playing game system for 3-6 players with a bunch of six-sided dice. It is filled with gorgeous art from Alex Prinz.

The game is geared for short campaigns of 6-10 sessions, but the book has one-shot specific tweaks to make it sing at a convention or with a home group between longer campaigns. This book comes with six pre-built neighborhoods so you can jump right in and start playing tonight.

What's the power level for play? Spider-Man/Daredevil/Moon Knight? X-Men? Thor?

Hey there, Chris. I'd recommend playing at the Spider-Man/Daredevil/Moon Knight level. Powers were built to emulate that fiction.

Nina, sorry about that. That's weird because it was originally 10 pages of the book. I'll work on it today.

The alleged "Printer Friendly" PDF is only the Cheat Sheet- and the Cheat Sheet is no longer listed in the file list.

Apologies for the late reply, Jeffrey. I have adjusted the files now and the printer friendly PDF is legitimately a printer-friendly PDF of the whole book. Thanks for the note!

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.
