Your hero can be unpowered, a normal human fighting against huge threats. Alternately, your hero can use superpowers, magical abilities and items, psychic abilities, or specialize with technology. The game system is easy to learn and flexible. Capes uses Boffers, Latex weapons, NERF guns and packets for attacks.
The game is meant as cooperative play, with a very story-like, Players-vs-Environment feel. The goal is that you (yes, you specifically) will feel heroic at least once during every game.
