Anti-Heroes  is a game about super-powered people trying to make their way in the world.  They might be villains, vigilantes, cons, or even real heroes.  The game is inspired by comics like Suicide Squad, the Punisher, The Watchmen and The Boys.

Anti-Heroes uses the Forged in the Dark system introduced in John Harper's Blades in the Dark RPG. It is a fiction first rule set that encourages players to "play to see what happens." In Anti-Heroes, the rules are stripped down to the core for simplicity and flexibility.

Eight categories of super powers make it easy to create nearly any type of character you want. Characters with the same power can describe its manifestation and effects in very different ways. For example, one anti-hero with the shapeshifter power may be able to stretch their arms and legs to incredible lengths, while another may use the power to shape their hands into sledgehammers.  

Anti-Heroes also includes a collaborative city-building game so that you can create a unique setting for your characters.

Is this game standalone, or do you need to reference the original Blades in the Dark?

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.
