What power level are these supers? Street level? X-Men? Justice League?

Hello Matthew, I’ve created supers of all power levels for my games. These rules introduce Super Story Points. They are like regular story points but on steroids. Street level supers get more than X-Men level supers and Justice league level supers get more than X-Men level supers. That has helped level the playing field so that everyone has fun whether they are playing Captain America or Thor. Thank you for your interest, Laz.

Hey Chris, We had a date set, but the host had to cancel last minute due to scheduling conflicts. We haven’t had a chance to reschedule. I’m working on another Superheroics! PDF (collection of supers for use as pregens, NPCS, or adversaries) so when I publish that my chances of getting on the interview roster should improve. :)

I have 1 question about how this works before I buy, are the powers in trees similar to Star Wars Force powers, just generic talents, or something different?

Hello Conner,

The powers are something different. They are a type of skill/sub-skill.

There are new skills, one for each characteristic, called Superpower skills - so Superpower (Brawn), Superpower (Agility), and so forth. The superpowers themselves are skills that are linked to one of these Superpower skills, like Flight (Superpower Agility) - just Flight (Agility) to make things simpler.

The superpowers are different from regular skills because they are linked to a Superpower skill for their skill ranks and they have quality and magnitude ratings that provide the stats needed for their use in game play. The quality rating determines how many advantages can be converted to triumph results as a player option. The magnitude rating helps determine things like soak, melee/ranged defense, base damage, and so forth.

There is no list of superpowers. The GM/player come up with the superpower name and what it does and then determine a superpower level (that determines...See more

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
