Magpie Games are the RPG publisher behind the successes of the Root RPG and Avatar Legends. One of the games they were known for before those two blockbusters were the superhero series Masks, and there’s now an all-one Bundle of Holding deal for Masks.
Masks is a creatively adapted Powered by the Apocalypse tabletop RPG, and Masks: A New Generation is all about young heroes. Think Young Justice. Think Teen Titans.
Masks – A New Generation: Complete Collection – $12.95
The bundle collection is valid until March 23rd, and with only one tier, there is a fixed price of $12.05 for $55 worth of Brendan Conway’s RPGs.
- Masks: A New Generation
- Halcyon City Herald
- Secrets of A.E.G.I.S.
Back in 2016, over at RPG.net, RPG reviewer Rob Wieland noted.
Stats are the different ways teenagers perceive themselves, and they shift up or down on a regular basis. Ask a boy out to prom and he shoots you down? Your Mundane goes down and your Freak goes up. Save a bus full of regular kids? Your Savior might go up and your Danger goes down as you learn to use your powers for good. Adults can cause your labels to shift without your say-so, so you can either go along with what they say or try to fight it off, but that’s what gets your character conditions. Rather than harm, you get emotional conditions like Angry or Afraid that hinder your moves until you make a move to remove them — which usually is doing something stupid a teenager would do, like lash out at a friend or make out with someone bad for you. I think it’s a great Apocalypse World riff and a fun take on the teen supers genre.”
A chunk of the money raised in this deal goes to support the charity Direct Relief.
