So I'm a little daunted by all the things I see on this board. I really want to make this game for a buddy for his birthday, but I'm not really sure what to do, or where to start. My initial thought was to print off the required "books", but that's like 150 pages!

Is there any advice for someone coming in to this, or any tips of what should be started? Also, I see a bunch of posts for various cards of villians, etc, but are there any links to Artscow for any of this?

You can get the four base books (Rules, Adventure, Events, and Enemies) printed and bound at Kinko's. The cards and stuff are useful, but not necessary to enjoy the game.

Eesh. I'm better off probably doing it on my own. While the quality will be worse, having them printed double-sided is like 25$ for 1 book. I guess I could have them single-sided, but that's still going to run like 60$. Might have to make a different game for him...

If you print them as booklets you will save on 75% of your paper costs (and less ink). I used this prog. it's free http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-tools/PDF/PDF-Booklet-Cr...

Awesome! This is the sort of cost-saving idea I'm looking for!
