From publisher blurb:
The Sky's the Limit!
Unlock the power of your imagination! Any kind of superhero, any powers, any scope... One Simple, Fast, Exciting system!
Kapow! gives you everything you need to play the superhero RPG of your dreams: Powers, vehicles, sidekicks, bases...it's all there, and You don't need a degree in accounting to create the hero you've always wanted to play!
Does your superhero game sound like a comic book? If you use Kapow! it will. Kapow! uses the SFX! System, which blends free-form play, with players deciding whether their actions are plausible within the superhero genre, and dice-driven mechanics where the degree of success--or failure--can come as a surprise to all, and the Tension is real.
