Horseshoe Academy


The fall semester is starting, and you’re a bright horse who’s left home to attend Horseshoe Academy. This castle-like institute at the edge of Hippolonia is where you’ll learn spells, make friends, and find your place in Awesome World.

Choose your horse lineage — will you be a flighty pegasus? Or maybe a hardy mustang? Then braid friendship bangles into your stablemates' flowing manes. Best friends forever! Or at least until there's drama in the herd...


Chose your favorite textbook and a piece of flair for your mane. It's time to get to class! Don't forget to say hi to your Bangle Buddy — this loyal friend will help you out when things get tough.

Awesome World

Horseshoe Academy is part of the Awesome World series of tabletop roleplaying games. It's set in the same cartoon realm as The Excellents, and characters from both games can play together in the same adventures!

Easy to Learn 

Horseshoe academy runs on the Polymorph system. Each player only ever uses ONE polyhedral die: a d4, a d6, a d8, or a d10. Each die represents a different character “role” in the group. Whenever a player asks “can I do something?” they roll their die and with a quick glance at a resolution matrix, know if they succeed. It's easy for both newbies and old hats to use and learn.

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.
