Disposable Heroes is a Powered By The Apocalypse Tabletop RPG set in a electro-slick neon futurescape known as Neo-Francisco. This is a future fantasy world where demons, liches, dragons and monsters live in floating pyramids, deep underground lairs and holographic obelisks deep in the heart of a vibrant, pulsing city of music and lights.

You play as employees of Disposable Heroes, the latest gig economy app to hit the scene. Your job is to deliver packages to these powerful and terrifying beings - they don't like to go out much, you see. Their lairs are deadly, full of traps and monsters that don't really care if you have a package for Draxxus Bombastus the Lich king - they get paid to stop intruders, and that's you.

But don't worry, for every one of you they kill, another dozen eager (broke), hardworking (hungry) and dedicated (late on rent) heroes are ready to take their place.

You begin play with a deck of cards, each card is a character, with a name, an animal, stats, a weapon and one special ability. The GM deals these cards to the players (with special rules for one or two players playing several characters), and whenever the character would normally take damage (which is often), the character is instantly killed and the card representing them is discarded. The player then draws a new one, immediately putting them right back into the game with a new set of abilities. Some of these abilities even mess with the deck itself, such as a fire mage discarding cards to empower their spells, or the Chef who lets you recycle cards to draw new ones, for an experience unlike anything else out there!
