Stat It: Heroes Wear Masks

Recently, I have purchased all the available Mission and Quest packs from Avalon’s latest dollar sale. It’s how I was able to obtain the Avalon Quests game and how I was able to do the Avalon Quests sessions. Though funny story, I didn’t realize they had an annual dollar sale a year ago.

As I said before, the game is perfect for Pathfinder fans, as it’s a good way to play the game solo. I’m actually gonna confess, Pathfinder is my favorite version of 3.5, if only because of its vast customization, its open sources, and the fact that it’s getting more and more updates to keep the game fresh, rather than torching the system and jumping ship to a new version.

However, Pathfinder, as well as most D20 games, are a bit of a thorn in my side for being… complex. If you have read my past experience with Avalon, you’d know that I wound up forgetting quite a bit of common Pathfinder rules. Of course, this falls under the logic of “fun over rules”, so it’s not that bad…

And so, I get to the point of this post: I’m tackling Avalon again. Though not for a while, as per my preparations for other stuff, like the Solo Gaming Month or the Fan-Voted Quarter Quell. However, we have a twist. See, sometime ago, Avalon made a rules variant of Pathfinder. The variant? Superhero-themed D20. Ladies and Gentlemen, Heroes Wear Masks. Continue reading
