Description:

“Godlike in their abilities, let us hope this new breed of man will carry the burden of a suffering world to our ultimate and unwavering goal — freedom for all the people of the Earth.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt 
November 10, 1941

At the dawn of World War II, a handful of people called "Talents" manifested strange powers that set them apart from the rest of humanity. With these powers man took to the air without mechanical aid, explored the depths of the sea without life support, and touched the rim of space.

To others, Talents seemed godlike in their power. Only the Talents themselves, pushed to the front lines of every battle, knew the truth — that these newfound powers seemed pointless in the face of death.

That their power set them apart from family, friends and enemies.

That it made them more, and yet somehow less.

These fears, like the power that feeds them, are godlike in their scope.

“The world is richly super [yet] delightfully bleak and war-torn…. Look, up in the sky — and take cover.” —Kenneth Hite, Out of the Box

A GAME LIKE NO OTHER

GODLIKE is a role-playing game in which the players take the roles of superhuman Talents fighting in World War II.

No bright spandex, no pulp machismo. In the grimmest conflict in history, ordinary men and women emerge who have the Talents their times demand — but who are still as vulnerable, and ultimately as expendable, as the ordinary troops in the foxholes.

The core book includes everything you need to play in a wartime setting ripe with intrigue and combat.

“An excellent game with many roleplaying opportunities and chances to be real heroes.” —Jody Harkavy, About.com

GODLIKE features an amazing, intensively researched alternate history by award-winning author Dennis Detwiller (Delta Green).

There's a full list of ready-to-play powers, and easy rules for creating your own from scratch. A huge "field manual" of weapons and vehicles covers all sides of the war.

And Greg Stolze (Unknown Armies) presents the innovative "One-Roll Engine," built for lightning-fast superpowered action.

A WORLD ON FIRE

GODLIKE features an intensively researched alternate history, the depth of setting and character for which award-winning author Dennis Detwiller (Delta Green) is famous, an innovative rules set by Greg Stolze (Unknown Armies), and a complete "D20" rules conversion by Mike Mearls.

“Slick production values, and a simple and clever system with an eye toward punching through tanks and German machine gun nests, make this a great superhero game.” —Mark Finn, RevolutionSF

REVISED EDITION

This new edition of GODLIKE includes corrections and revisions throughout the book based directly on the feedback of gamers over the years since GODLIKE first appeared.

It also includes a new appendix with further rules options adapted from GODLIKE sourcebooks and campaign books by Dennis Detwiller, Allan Goodall and Shane Ivey: squad combat rules, bombardments, minefields, the One-Roll Patrol generator, new powers and more.

“GODLIKE ultimately succeeds because it successfully and believably integrates superheroes into the war…. Our Pick: ‘A’.” —Kenneth Newquist, Science Fiction Weekly

GODLIKE: You are larger than life . . . but the War is larger than you!

Up for review this week is “Godlike,” a role-playing game designed by Pagan Publishing and released by Arc Dream Publishing. The short version of that Godlike is a super heroes’ game set in the Second World War. It is not a four-color depiction [...]

This is actually the third ORE game that I have purchased (the first two being Wild Talents and Nemesis). The system is an interesting take on rolling dice, and I like its uniqueness, and efficiency. The background is well written, and provides a lot [...]

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.
