Prowlers & Paragons is a narration-driven, rules-light system designed to emulate four-color superhero comics.
The rules, for the most part, don’t tell you what happens. Instead, they tell you who gets to describe what happens. Both the players and the gamemaster take turns narrating events in the game world. However, there are rules that help determine what characters can do and how they compare to one another. With the streamlined rules, once you know what you’re doing, you should be able to play without ever opening the book.
P&P was designed to let you play stories about super heroes who save the world and beat the snot out of villains who richly deserve it. Like so much of the genre, P&P is a gleefully unapologetic exercise in heroic wish fulfillment.
