What are they?

Epic Hero and Villain Feat Cards are a powerful new tabletop role playing game aid that allows you to make interesting, engaging, and challenging alterations to game play and dice rolls at the flick of a card. They allow your hero to mimic the luck, guile, skill, and challenging adventures like some of your favorite heroes in fantasy novels and movies.

They work best with D&D, Pathfinder and D20 based systems, because they are based around the D20 being the Attack and Skill Roll die.

What do they do?

Epic hero and villain cards allow your character in the role-playing game to survive the situations and be the hero when normally, the dice don't agree.

The game is about the story. Not the rules.

Never lose a character again to a bad dice roll. GM's never lose the fun in a game again due to overpowered characters or hero point or action point binging.

They allow you a get out of jail free card for bad situations. Adventure stronger, harder and be more awesome. They allow you to roll what you need to roll when you need to roll it. Avoid that nasty killing blow at the last second, and live long enough to see your enemy vanquished. It's a hero's luck and skill that you control.

Turn hack and slash combat, and static abilities, and bad rolls into dynamic, back and forth, fantasy movie or novel style dramatic, tide turning tooth and nail combat that the whole table will enjoy.

How?

They give you a host of abilities to use when you need them. Some lasting only moments, some seconds, some as long as danger is present, and some for as long as the game play that day.

The players can play a card at any time.

Add a bonus to an attack roll, increase your damage for a round, even take an extra turn when you need it. Be the epic hero you've always wanted to be. Choose one and enhance your hero's abilities at any time, or better yet be a hero, re-inspire teamwork and play them on a friend or ally.

Every card has 4 Unique Heroic options.

Select an ability. Hand the card to the GM. And leap into heroic action!

And then, it’s the GM's Turn.

After you use hero and villain cards to enhance your game, save your character, or give you that that shining moment, they go over to the GM. Used Hero cards become GM Villain Cards with different uses and different possibilities. Used just like hero cards, they allow the GM to shift the tide in the Villians favor, or further against the heroes, with the forces he already has planned. Have your villains absorb the strongest of player magic, unharmed. Grant attacks to their raging armored warriors, even ride out the player characters direct assault upon a single, powerful foe.

Every card has 3 Villainous options.

Select a villainous ability. Choose your targets and truly challenge your heroes.

Negate that lucky critical hit. Ride out a magical onslaught. Say no to the instant kill attack. Fortify a villains defenses against a party of heroes and make them really fight for their victory. Weak, boring, "insert monster here" fight? Spend a villain card to make them ALL win the initiative, and see how boring combat is after that.

4 Power levels.

Each shining green orb in the upper right corner of the card represents one power level. New and more powerful abilities become available as your power grows. Master deck manipulation and gain access to abilities far beyond your power.

Balanced. And Fun.

It doesn’t create or enable super powered players to run rampant over your game. In fact it’s the opposite. A simple use of 1 villain card in the right place can breathe life into even the most expected fights. This is Balance. This is Fun. This Player Agency Made real.

Threat rising. Heroes needed.

The GM builds his own hand of cards from the ones that were played by the heroes during the game. The storyteller can play cards just like the players at anytime to alter or enhance the game action, excitement, drama, or danger, at the flick of a card.

Its more than just a simple add on.

Each hero manages his own heroic deck of cards. Your fate and your fortune are always in your hands! Do you tempt the hand of fate by burning through them? Handing them en mass over to the storyteller as you do amazing deeds, only for the GM to use them later? Or do you conserve them? Using them only when necessary and restricting the GM's supply of card surprises? Your hero, your choice!

More than just simple mechanics.

Extra icons change the cards into their own game.

Though the mechanics are simple, they can become quite involved! Manipulate your deck, draw cards ,trade cards with allies, share cards, or recharge your own heroic stack. Give cards to bolster an ally's dwindling heroic stack. Pay for redrawing and shuffling your hand with a tithe of one card to the GM.

Once the cards start flying, they really start flying.

It’s a fix.

My Tabletop RPG group tends to play without a healer. These cards don’t fill the gap completely, but they allow for a team of 4-6 adventures to survive fights and skirmishes that would murder a healer dependent party. 6 Fighters? No problem. Have a gritty realistic or low magic campaign and still have fun.

No more gear dependency.

Spend your gold on something that you want rather than what you "need". Want boots of sneaking, but need a ring of defense? You can now spend your gold on something else and you can cancel at least half of the “must have” magic items off your list, because Epic hero and villain cards become your heroes toolkit.

No more min maxing necessary.

Don’t spend your nights up on the internet trying to build the level 6 character with 7 different classes just to have the bonuses and immunities and skills to get through the game. Play an adventurer. And go on a dangerous and thrilling and unexpected adventures. With the stuff your character is wearing. And the class he currently is in. And still have a chance of surviving till the next game.

GM's Best Friend. 

Do you like modules or like co-opting them for ideas from time to time, but you find the encounters or boss fights under powering so you do some “player restructuring?” Changing monsters, weakening bosses, adding minions, etc. because of action economy? No more funwork. These cards close the gap without you rewriting pre-written stories.

Add On-The-Fly excitement to your game. Just play the cards.

"No Disintegrations."

Bring boss fights to life. Make bosses fight like a boss.

Save a card or two for the boss fight and give it a try. Ride out the player’s wave of attacks against a single foe. Take the fight to the players and make your villain a villain. Give your game those tense, exciting, Epic style tooth and nail combats each and every game. Boss fights were never like this before.

Handle the super characters.

Don’t bother to worry about min/maxers. Someone in your game can't be hit, damaged , killed, or even so much as be given a parking ticket in your game due to some creative rules-fu? No matter. These cards make your game cheese proof. Don’t stay up all night finding ways to make them feel excitement or threatened. Don’t flood the game with cheese monsters who can automatically hit him or her and overcome their defenses.

Unscripted danger around any corner you choose. With the flick of a card.

With a simple play of a few cards, all players are reminded that there characters are mortal. And danger is a part of adventure. Bring back player agency, danger, and adventure to any campaign without changing anything else. Just add these cards.

Epic Abilities Ahead!

Use your mastery of managing your deck, or Trade 5 power cards in to level up into an epic hero. Draw 1 card from your choice of epic hero deck.

Each Epic Hero Deck has 7 or more different cards each representing an aspect of character play. For instance, War has Two-Handed, Dual-weild, Agile Fighter, Sword and Shield, Rage Fighter, Ranged, and Warrior

The last icon on the Epic Hero card is 1 last ditch ability that the card can provide, as it is discarded.

With Epic Good Comes Epic Evil.

Format
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.
