Update: THANK YOU!  MEGAPOLIS FOR ALL!

We are down to the end here, Kickstarters! We've decided to add an extra "Thank-You" to every backer of this project. This isn't a "Stretch Goal" This is a "Thank You" to everyone who backs the project!

Every backer will receive the "Megapolis: A City of Supers" PDF in addition to their existing Reward Level. If you already have Megapolis, you can pay it forward to a friend! Now you'll have a setting to go with your BASH! Awesome Powers campaign! Thanks Again to All Backers! 

The Hour is Nigh!  All Backers Receiving Megapolis PDF for free!

$4000 Paper Miniatures for all Sample Characters

New $2 Option Added - Ala-Carte Awesome!

Introduction: 

Now that Awesome Powers Volume 1 is out, we are looking to fund future volumes. We decided to leave which new volumes would be released first up to you!  

For those unfamiliar, Awesome Powers is the super powered supplement to BASH! Ultimate Edition super heroic RPG system (a 2010 ENnie nominee for Best Rules). Each volume will feature:  

--Dozens of new powers for BASH! Ultimate Edition, completely built and organized by themes, called “Power Suites”. Each volume will contain at least two Power Suites. (Volume 1 contained six Power Suites)  

--New power Enhancements and Limitations  

--New Advantages and Disadvantages  

--Random character creation rules, customized for each Power Suite  

--Sample characters

If this Kickstarter manages to raise $300, that will fund a total of five volumes, comprising 14 Power Suites, to be released in PDF format.  However, if a surplus of funding is raised, stretch goals will trigger that will increase the total number of volumes and Power Suites, and also possibly fund a print run of the books. 

The order in which the Power Suite packages are created will be determined by “votes” that are granted to those who pledge during the Kickstarter. The final tally of these votes will come at the end of the Kickstarter period.  

For example, if the Light / Dark suites receive the most votes, and the Plant / Animal suites receive the second most votes, Awesome Powers #2 will feature the Light / Dark suites, and #3 will feature the Plant / Animal suites. You can choose to cast all your votes for a single Suite combo, or split your votes as you like between several.

As of right now, some of the Power Suite Combinations that are planned include:

Plant / Animal

Light / Shadow

Force / Gravity / Magnetism

Power Armor / Robotics 

Inner Strength / Intense Training

Sorcery / Artifacts

Psionic / Telekinetic

Speed / Plasticity

Luck / Precognitive 

Necrotic / Envigoration

Matter Manipulation / Metamorphic

Growth / Shrinking / Density Control

Sonic / Toxic 

Technopathy / Gadgets

Phasing / Teleportation / Gates

If you want to help this project, please pass it on to your friends, share on social media, and post online. #BASH! #Superheroes #Powers #RPG #AwesomePowers

Risks and challenges

To ensure a fair tally, it may take some time to tally up all the votes at the end of the Kickstarter.

Not only do we have a lot of writing to do, we are going to commission new artwork for each Power Suite. We're estimating it will take about 30 days to produce each volume.

As we hit stretch goals to produce more and more volumes of Awesome Powers, it will make the overall product bigger, but it will also take longer before it is totally complete.

If we reach our stretch goal to issue a printed compendium, there may be some time delay involved in getting the project set up to print, and out to ship.
