Today’s New Year, New Game Week Pick is a $15 bundle containing $50 of stuff for the superheroic Masks: A New Generation, a Powered by the Apocalypse game that serves as one of the stronger examples of the system’s versatility. In addition to the core rulebook, the bundle also includes three key supplements to help you structure a complete and long-lasting campaign in Halcyon City.
(From the core rulebook description):
Masks: A New Generation is an ENnie-award winning superhero roleplaying game in which a team of young heroes fights villains, saves lives, and tries to figure out who they are—noble paragons? Dark avengers? Or regular kids? All against the backdrop of Halcyon City, the greatest city in the world.
This is the Playbook Edition – while not a second edition, this version includes the playbooks in the book, along with some changes to content. The rules are the same as the first edition, however.
In this book, you get:
– Ten playbooks for young superheroes, so you can create your own awesome characters
– Rules for superheroic action, interpersonal drama, and changing identity
– Detailed instructions for running the game, building villains, and playing to find out what happens
– Tools for creating your own custom material for Masks
Masks makes use of the same rules-light engine as Apocalypse World, Monsterhearts, Dungeon World, Urban Shadows, and Epyllion to create stories about young superheroes in the vein of Young Justice, Young Avengers, and Teen Titans.
