Wicked Heroes: Children of the Mirror

In 1724, an obsidian mirror, discovered in the distant lands of South America, was brought back to Spain. The captain of the ship went mad, the mirror went missing, but the seed had already been planted. 

A seed of wickedness and evil. 

The sorcery did not sleep. Over the next century, it crept into the womb of the world, infecting the innocent. Granting gifts both blessed and cursed. 

Now, the children of the mirror walk our streets. Their secrets are not our own. The sorcery in their blood marks them. Makes them beautiful. Makes them dangerous. Makes them better than us. 

Gifts and Curses. Those who fly. Those who can change. Those who can see. Each is given a single Gift. And a Curse. Those who become infected with the sorcery of the black mirror pass these Gifts and Curses on to their offspring. 

We know the inheritors of this legacy. Their names ring in our memories. And as the mirror changes hands, almost by a will of its own, new generations are born, bearing the mark. 

Each born with one Blessing, one Curse. But if one kills the other, he steals her Blessing, adding it to his own, replacing his Curse with hers. 

They are faster than us. They are stronger than us. They are better than us. 

Children of the Mirror. Blessed and Damned.


Wicked Heroes is a horror supers game. It will be included in the Big Book of Little Games, released in November 2011. 


Includes e-pub and PDF format!

This is one of my favorite TTRPGs ever, and I've never even played it. I find myself wanting to write stories about its world, wanting to see movies about it, TV series. That might seem gushy, but John Wick's works are just that good. Worth the 5 bucks for sure--it's simple, compact, card-based, and in all those ways it is unique without being overwrought.

F@c#!ng genius. End of discussion. This is Wild Cards meets Heroes in a dark alley. I grew bored of superhero RPGs decades ago, but this has brought me back to them.

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.
