A low-powered Superheroes setting that strives to emulate the gritty, street-level heroics of comics like Batman, Punisher, Daredevil, Hawkeye, The Shadow and Watchmen (sans Dr. Manhattan).
Crime has gotten out of control all over the world and costumed vigilantes have emerged as an augmentation of beleaguered law enforcement agencies everywhere. The popular media has taken to calling these vigilantes "Nighthawks" because they typically prey on crooks under the cover of darkness.
This setting features:
- "Super Edges" -- a new category of Edges that help to quickly and easily define a Super Powerset for a low-powered campaign
- Rules for building Super Weapons, Armor, Vehicles and Lairs
- King City: a new setting based on a contemporary metropolis where Nighthawks can duke it out with crooks and villains
- 52 "Instant NPCs" that can be randomly sprinkled into your gaming sessions
