In this game you become a hero. You think for him or her and use your character's skills to solve the problem or overcome the obstacle at hand. These problems and obstacles are developed by a referee (called the Gamesmaster). He or she arbitrates all situations using both the rules and personal judgement. DAREDEVILS ia a game of action, adventure and imagination.

Your Character is a hero. A cloaked avenger, a technological wizard, a hard-boiled detective, a reckless soldier-of- fortune... each is a possibility. You can draw upon the great pulp magazines, the old movie serials, classic radio programs and even modern films set in the period. DAREDEVILS provides full rules for creating your hero... his or her attributes, skills and gear. Optional rules allow for the special powers and high-technology gimmicks used by many of the prototype heroes. Provision is even made for the uncanny luck of these redoubtable protagonists.

The rules for DAREDEVILS are your gateway to action and adventure. New comers to role playing games will find helpful hints on good play. Experienced gamers will find a selection of advanced and optional rules to add on to the basic rulcs for increased complexity and detail of simulation.

Herein is also contained a separate booklet, DAREDEVIL ADVENTURES, which presents several scenarios. Each situation is designed to introduce various aspects of the rules as well as provide a period flavor and a full dose of excitement. You may solve a murder, embark on a globe-spanning adventure, or become embroiled in the plans of an insidious mastermind.

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.
