Power Outage

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.00

Power Outage is a simplified Table Top RPG designed with the intent of being played between Adults (As Game Masters) and young children (As the Players). Players take on the roles of superheroes they create in an alternate Earth world where the mysterious country-sized island of Outage, Alaska is a hotbed of adventure and intrigue. The island is broken up into several districts, each with their own set of supervillains. The game consists of a Core Rules Book (with included quick play guide), a website as a resource, and Adventure Blocks, which are optional adventures based on the world of Power Outage. The adventure blocks use a gaming system called CEPA paths, which is short for Combat, Exploration, Puzzles and Alternative. By predetermining these path guidelines adults can structure gameplay for varying ages allowing for greater or less difficulty and greater or less fantasy violence. But even “violence” in the game is minimized to make this game as family friendly as possible. Of course the final option, of course, is to utilize the mechanics and world to create a game that adults can play. The motto follows the motif of the game. Kids get to be heroes in the game, and parents get to be heroes to their kids when they interact with them in fun and imaginative ways.

Version 1.4 Mechanics are now available.  Check them out here.

This is a great TRPG designed for elementary school aged children, yet is immensely adaptable for all ages including adults.
The game design allows for getting playing quickly with inexperienced players of all ages (6-36).
The game is developed with a very nice non-combat option for every encounter.
The game helps teach cognitive reasoning skills in a very entertaining way.
Personally, I hope to see it as a fun teaching aid in schools.

(An interesting addition, you don't Have to be a super hero parent to play with your superhero child. The setup is such that Adults can play with little understanding if what your kid is doing and have a great time, too.)
Thank you!

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.
