Destined - Superheroic Roleplaying

Who are you destined to be?

If you were given fantastic powers, who would you be? Would you try to save the world -
or conquer it? Would you promote peace and justice, or foster fear and demand blind obedience? Would you strive to be the world’s greatest hero or its most infamous villain?

Destined is a game of super-powered role playing. You take on the roles of individuals with amazing abilities and try to find your place in a world inspired by comic books and other superheroic media. Using an extensive array of superpowers you create whatever hero you can imagine, and take to the mean streets to mete out justice using your trusty 1d100 and a well stocked utility belt.  

Based on the acclaimed Mythras rules, Destined is an easy to learn and action-packed game system. Destined gives you all the rules you need to create the superhero stories you want to tell.  From four colored tales of spandex and capes, to gritty stories of real world crime, Destined allows you to play as whatever superhero (or villain) you want to be.

Destined is a complete roleplaying game. All you need are some friends, dice, and your imagination...

Hey guys. I'm still reading through the book and I really like what I see so far. But it would have been very helpful (to me) if there was, say, a summary of all of the core powers listed somewhere. Like maybe a table of all powers, their associated characteristics, and short descriptions in order to help new players plan and build around their character concepts (less page flipping). Same for skills, actually. I'm going to end up making my own tables if I ever run a campaign, put if there is ever going to be a revision for future prints I think this would be an awesome addition.

Oof, after flipping through again I found the skills summary table in the character creation section (I expected it to be in the Skills chapter). I'm still going to create my own (more verbose) version, but that summary would suffice for most new players I think.

Finally got the chance to read the rules cover-to-cover and really impressed and happy with the rules. I feel like I'm missing something though. Is there a way to increase the dice-of-effect with experience for something like Blast without having to increase the character's POW stat?

There are 7 Origins. They factor into how many powers you get and your hero's background.

Purchased the game and very happy. The book definitely stands out in my ever growing collection of Superhero rpgs. Is this going to be supported with supplements, hero teams, villains, more plot hooks, more powers? Does Design Mechanism allow use of its system to produce scenarios or additional content?

Thank you Paul. Yes, Destined is going to be supported, and additional scenarios are in the works. We also have a Gateway License for independent producers to create their own content, and Destined is included in the license. Contact us designmechanism AT gmail DOT com for more information.

Having only glanced through the book briefly, I can say I am loving the contents of it thus far and plan to use it for my own superhero RPG. I saw that the book directs you to the website for the her character sheet but I can't see it anywhere on the site, not sure if I'm blind or it's just not there yet. =S

It is discussed in the GM chapter and the included setting details a few organized crime groups. There are also stats for goods and syndicate bosses.

In the book there are brief write ups on an organized crime family, an outlaw biker gang, a group of former intelligence agents that sell information, and a group of steampunk cyborgs recently awakened from cryogenic stasis. That is in the included setting, which is there if people want to use it but not necessary. We talk about doing grittier, real world crime games and one of the power levels of heroes is designed for these types of games.

46 core powers, and each power has multiple Boosts that can enhance them or allow them to work in different ways.

If you don't mind a suggestion, perhaps you could link the Preview version of the game on this page so people can see the preview before purchasing.

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.
