Comic Book Adventures Preview #2


Want to play a super hero RPG, but have no one around to game with, well Avalon is here to save you from your boredom.  Yep its here at lasts, a solo system for playing a comic book super hero RPG.

Everything you need is supplied, the rules for running the game, battle tiles to fight the super brawls on, exciting adventures and encounters, hard choices to make which can effect the future of your hero.  Its all here, the arch-foes, the helpless old lady caught in a bank robbery, aliens and monsters, super villains and more.

Comic Book Adventures uses Avalon’s popular Heroes Wear Masks RPG as the base for the system, which in turn is based on Pathfinder, so if you are familiar with that great RPG game engine then you are already to go.  If you have yet to play Pathfinder or Heroes Wear Masks, then here is your opportunity to jump in.

So get ready, sew your costume, grab your cape and power up your energy beams, the city is in need of a hero and you must answer the call.

Comic Book Adventures comes with all you need to get started, the core book offers all the rules needed to play, the charts need to discover your adventures and a Mini-Mission book full of premade adventures and encounters.  The system also comes with a record sheet, over 40 full color battle tiles and much, much more.

In this preview we will look at the Mini-Mission book that comes with the core game. Here your hero will find the adventures and stories that will bring their career as a hero to life.

While the system is geared toward using Avalon’s Heroes Wear Masks, you can, with a bit of tinkering, use just about any RPG system, so if you want you can play using your favorite super hero RPG and have just as much fun.

Even if you don’t use the system as a solo game, there is all sort of great stuff you can use in your standard group based super hero game.  So invest in your gaming future and pick up a copy of Comic Book Adventures and soar high into the sky.

It was ok, I'd imagine. I don't really own any other material so it was rather confusing to say the least. However, I'm sure it would have been fine if I did. [...]

Congratulations, you've made the all-male list of contacts and informants. Exactly 0 women out of 9 NPCs? Nice try, but no cookie. [...]

While you do need the rulebook to understand some of the character statistics - like almost every potential snitch requires you to have a different rating on things to get information from them - the starter does give enough to show that the book will [...]

I'm a little skeptical of the idea of a solo RPG (without a GM/DM), and the low quality of this preview doesn't reassure me. The PDF includes (1) a list of contacts and informants, each with a few prerequisites and available missions; (2) a ma [...]

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.
