A Superhero Roleplaying Game

One year ago, on April 17, 2015, the Earth passed directly through the tail of a large, previously unknown comet. For three days, the sky lit up brightly with meteors during the day and the night alike. At the same time, people around the world fell into comas until the meteor shower ended. When they awoke, they were filled with divine power.

Some heralded it as the Second Coming or the start of the Apocalypse; the book of Revelation was quoted and misquoted repeatedly. Were these powers the gifts of God, poured out in the last hour of humanity?

After a few weeks it became clear that the world was not ending – although some continued to cling to these beliefs as offshoot Christian doomsday cults arose – and a fascinating coincidence came to mind: All of the affected people were those without any sort of religious belief. Skeptics, atheists, a few agnostics – but not a single person who had any sort of religious faith in the supernatural.

The actual truth of what happened is that there was a war in Heaven, and thousands of the losing side – angels who fell from obedience to God – were cast to Earth.
Angels lack one of the basic traits of humanity: the ability to have Faith, defined as the substance of things hoped for, the assurance of things not seen. Angels know firsthand of the glory of God; they don't have to summon up Faith to accept what they know to be true about Her.

As they entered the atmosphere, their radiant majesties were stripped away from them, and that power fled to those with compatible mindsets – those who eschew Faith. They are known as the Host. What would these non-believers do with the power of the angels? The world would soon find out.

the game

Higher Powers is a roleplaying game where one player takes the role of the Gamemaster and the rest play one player character each. It's designed to be quick to create characters and quick to play. To play, you will need about a half dozen each of D6, D8, D10, and D12 dice, plus character sheets and pencils.

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.
