Description:

The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a brave adventurer fighting to survive in a world beset by magic and evil.  It's a very short trip from there to the world of superheroes. 

Pathfinder games and superhero fiction have a lot in common.  They're both tales of powerful extraordinary individuals, some heroic, some definitely not, who go out and have adventures.  Saving a town from being destroyed by a rampaging monster works equally well as a Pathfinder adventure or an issue of a comic book.  Something about the core experience of Pathfinder and the superhero milieu fundamentally click.  Heroes Wear Masks seeks to capitalize on that natural synergy and bring superheroes to Pathfinder.

Heroes Wear Masks is Pathfinder after it was bitten by a radioactive spider.  If you're familiar with Pathfinder you'll recognize most of the rules.  If you're familiar with superheroes you'll be familiar with most of the setting.  If you're familiar with both, you'll be right at home here.

I have always been a fan of super hero RPGs. I started back in the day with Villians & Vigilantes, then on to the original Marvel Super Heroes RPG and Superworld from Chaosium. I have collected a number of other super hero RPGs over the years and I'm [...]

The Introduction speaks of how often 'traditional' fantasy games have elements of the heroic, and so morphing a fantasy ruleset directly into a superhero game makes logical sense - more a case of swapping out sword and spellbook for a spandex costume [...]

An interest set of rules that turn Pathfinder into a superhero game. I've made a few characters to test the rules out and you can make a wide variety of characters, though GMs may want to invent some creative stat generating techniques so certain classes [...]

I'm giving Heroes Wear Masks 4 Stars. A real Pathfinder enthusiast might give it five. As supers RPGs go, it isn't as well done as ICONS or M&M3, but it does make innovative use of the Pathfinder system. I was actually impressed by how comparatively littl [...]

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.
