Welcome to PS238, the world’s first school for metaprodigies — children with superpowers! They have to learn how to be superheroes along with their math, history, and social studies, and PS238 is where they do that... and occasionally get into an adventure or two.

The PS238 Roleplaying Game brings you the fun and touching world of PS238 from Aaron Williams’s acclaimed comic book. Using the award-winning HERO System rules, it lets you create and play your own metaprodigy character. It’s fun for children of all ages!

The PS238 Roleplaying Game includes:

—a complete history and description of the school, and the world it’s a part of
—character sheets for the major faculty members, include Cristina Kyle, Herschel Clay, Vashti Imperia, and Principal Cranston
—character sheets for your fellow students, including Captain Clarinet, the Flea, the Emerald Gauntlet, Suzi Fusion, Tyler Marlocke, and Zodon
—a chapter on gamemastering PS238 games, with advice on adventure creation, GM-only secret information about the school and the world, and character sheets for villains and NPCs like Charles Brigman, the Praetorian Academy Centurions, and the Revenant
—a complete basic version of the HERO System rules specifically tailored for use in PS238 Roleplaying Game campaigns

So get your homework ready and make sure you put your costume in your backpack — it’s time for superpowered schoolyard adventures with The PS238 Roleplaying Game!

Great introduction to the Champions/HERO system and a fun concept that is different than all the "Superheroes in High school". Based on the PS 238 comic this game is a streamlined version of the same Champions game. I found it much easier to [...]

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.
