From the publisher "Special Edition is the latest edition of our Blood of Heroes Superhero and Villain roleplaying game, combining Blood of Heroes: First Edition with the additional rules presented in The Sidekick Sourcebook, plus further rules never seen before this publication.
The Blood of Heroes is a superhero and supervillain roleplaying game that uses the exponential gaming system created by Mayfair Games (sometimes called MEGS, originally designed for Mayfair's DC Heroes Roleplaying Game), the system is ideal for playing supers at any power level.
For the impatient, our quickstart section will help you start playing the same night you pick up the book. Over one hundred illustrated characters also populate the rulebook, ranging from powerful to obscenely powerful, forming a universe that can form the basis of many campaigns. (Those looking for characters with less muscle may wish to explore The Sidekick Sourcebook, which has little to do with sidekicks, but contains dozens of mid-level heroes that share this universe.)
For the less impatient, character creation is fast and easy. The point-based system will also help a team balance itself, so that no member overshadows the rest of the group. And, as a side-effect of the simplicity, the system is flexible enough to design nearly any character imaginable. ".
