In Hot Pursuit is the first adventure module of its kind published for use with the DC HEROES Role-Playing Game. Rather than being one long adventure featuring a single character or group of characters, it is an anthology: a collection of shorter adventures, each featuring a different exciting hero from the DC Universe. In these pages, you will find a variety of scenarios that range from a knock-down super brawl featuring the Man of Steel, Superman, to a dark mystery that must be unravelled by the enigmatic Huntress. The adventures contained herein also feature a variety of styles, each coming from the pen (or word processor, as the case may be) of a different author. These range from the whimsical antics of the Atom's would-be nemesis, Strobe, in Joe Pecsenyicki's tale, to the cold, calculated planning of Deathstroke the Terminator in the story by William Tracy.

Or if chance provides, you may receive a guided tour from the Dark Lord or one of his minions, complete with, a close-up view of the Tower of Rage and Granny Goodness Happiness Home.
Once you sift your way through the ashes and debris, you'll discover there's a lot more to this planet than meets the eye. Bask in the heat of the Fire-pits, factories, and mines; frolic among the equipment in the power refineries, installations, and orphanages; or voyage through the slum areas and tunnels of the underground.
If you're a people person, hobnob with the locals, the Hunger Dogs, and learn what life on Apokolips is really like. Or, if you're looking for some real excitement, put yourself in the path of some Para-Demons, War Dogs, or Dog Soldiers. But don't forget your running shoes!
Apokolips has something for everyone, and the price is right -- Nothing ... or maybe your life!
