Transform & contend with weird monsters & personal dilemmas!

Henshin! A Sentai RPG is a storytelling tabletop game about young heroes with transformative powers who battle both monsters and personal problems. It borrows from a Japanese superhero culture of color-coded masked teams, giant robots, and over-the-top special effects. Anyone can tell fun, collaborative stories in Henshin!, regardless of familiarity with the tropes, and the game showcases a diversity of settings and characters for every player.

This book includes instructions and actual play examples for everything needed to start playing Henshin! right away. Also included are the eleven Color playbooks, seven ready-to-play settings, original exclusive art, and references to digital downloads. Resources and information can be found at Let’s Henshin!

“...While Henshin! won’t let you actually transform, it does open the gates to your own imaginative world where you can. A must play for any tokusatsu fan!”
—Brian Dagley, The Tokusatsu Network

“Sam and Tim have torn the fabric of surreality to bring tokusatsu from TV to tabletop gaming and the results are sentai-sational!”
—Caleb Goellner, Task Force Rad Squad

HENSHIN! A Sentai RPG, provides a diceless, narrative-forward role-playing experience that puts you in the starring roles of a tokusatsu series of your own making. Similar to story-driven RPGs like Dungeon World, MASKS, and Dream Askew, Henshin! puts the characters first.

It is able to facilitate all of the cheese and drama of Power Rangers and Super Sentai, and lets you play to type, allowing you to step into the shoes of some Teenagers with Attitude.

For those that may be new to diceless RPGs, I would definitely recommend Henshin! as its team-based approach to storytelling allows you to flesh out a setting and design characters that feel real and lived in, together, as a group. And if an original setting isn't what your table is looking for, there are plenty of pre-established modules and are ready to pick up and play with!

Is this a FATE based, Apoc, or an in house system? The page that is meant to sell me the game says remarkably little about it, besides its settings and play books.

It appears to be Powered by the Apocalypse.

It's PBA in only the loosest sense. It's truly a diceless storytelling system. It clearly has some PBA inspirations.

Could you please do single pages format pdf in addition to the current spread pdf?
Single page format is much easier to read on pad & phone.

Is this the diceless one I saw online a while back?

While I can't say 100% this is the same one you saw, this is diceless. This is the deluxe edition that was kickstarted.

Does this have all of the extra stuff from the Kickstarter? I had to drop out as I was living under crushing poverty. But I can at least get this book & PDF combo now, as I have a stable address.

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.
