The BETA Men Need You!

In the shadows of World War II, another war is being fought. This is a war the public know nothing about… a war that threatens all of mankind. Invaders from beyond space have set their sights on our planet, and it’s going to take superheroes to stop them!

Only one team of operatives is equipped to handle trouble like this: The BETA Men! A team of special forces dedicated to investigating and countering threats from outside, the BETA men are ready for anything. But they’ll need the help of some superheroes to get the job done.

The BETA Men is written by Jack Norris for the Mutants and Masterminds Third Edition Role Playing Game. Artwork is provided by Alex Williamson and Denise Jones. Included you’ll find an extensive brief on the Bureau of Extra-Terrestrial Affairs (BETA), summarizing their membership, history, and equipment. Everyone from leader Dash Freeman to the intellectual super-simian Professor Trinazet is given spotlight status with full stat blocks and entries.

Also inside are the guidelines for running an Invasion campaign, breaking everything down into stages. An innovative Victory Point system helps give the players a currency they can use to help determine the course of the campaign.

Finally, we outline three example sets of invaders. Will you confront the Lokkus Horde and their horrifying biotech, the mysterious size-changing threat of the Triffling Empire, or the self-proclaimed  master super-race of Das Übermen? You’ll find histories, artwork, motives, plot seeds, and artwork for each set of invaders. Each one can be a campaign on their own, or string them together for a mega-sized campaign to save the earth on multiple fronts!

Join forces with the BETA men, and take a stand for all of humanity!

We’re Watching the Skies!

This book is a great resource for GMs wishing to run adventures in the Golden Age, or even later. Aside from the pre-generated characters (a mixture of obvious homages and interesting original elements) there is also a unique mechanic to cover invasio [...]

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.
