Herculean Awakening


The Herculeans have Awakened! We are not sure when the change truly began, or to whom we owe the debt, but in Florence, Italy near the year of our Lord 1295, a man rose up and challenged the assumption of evil. He was of the Medici Family, and they spent the next 100 years defending (and financially backing) Herculean men and women in Florence. Virgil, as we knew him, fought for their right to exist (until his death in 1353).

They exist in our world, posing as simple men and women, working common jobs, never looking for trouble. But, when the time comes, and trouble seeks them out, they will stand! This is, after all, Florence! The years 1300 – 1600, the Renaissance!

This is the newest setting for 218 Games!, and the start of our 1d8-2.0 system. We have updated rules for streamlined creation, Restructured Combat for a faster pace, reworked the skills and Checks to better suit role-play, and cut the proverbial fat from the rules. In essence, this system will set you up for grand adventure!

Herculean Awakening is set in Florence, Italy at any point in the Renaissance you choose (between 1300 and 1600). You are playing Super Hero style characters, complete with powers tht jump strait from the comics.

You will choose and Archetype of Hero, and build it to a powerhouse! This classless system will allow each character to grow through experience at the pace you set. Our point buy build, and experience spending growth make this possible.

Be a Ronin powerless hero that stalks the night, an Aberrant hero born with power, maybe a Construct formed in a lab, a Beast that has become more human, or split your powers between two personalities as a Hyde!

Use the resource from our other games like Salem World for Regent Needs until the Regent handbook is released.  Now grab a Pencil, a Character Sheet, 1d8, and Let's Go on an Adventure!

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.
