You and your friends are sitting around talking about comic books, ’cause that’s what we do, after all…

You’ve just finished reading Harbinger #21 and are wondering about Peter Stanchek’s powers. The key phrase that you’re excitedly debating is from Peter: “You know … it affects me pretty hard. Every time I scan someone. The homeless I wipe to keep rumors of your apparitions from spreading. All those Foundation members during Harada’s mind squall. Ax earlier today…”

One of you says, “Y’know, if I was Peter I’d simply anchor an invisibility shield to Monica Jim. Every time she leaves the Renegades’ underground lair, Peter’s psionic energy spikes on. That keeps Monica Jim hidden while alerting Peter to potential trouble while she’s out. But this also gives her some leash so the kid doesn’t go stir crazy.”

Another one of you says, “Nah, nothing in any of the comics says Peter can anchor his powers, much less have them kick off subconsciously like that. That’s going too far.”

And another friend pipes up and says, “Yeah, I agree. Not to mention that doesn’t solve Peter’s problem of the psychic weight he’s carrying. If I was Peter, I would’ve figured out how Harada’s mind squall worked while it was scrambling all that brain juice. The comics have shown how fast he adapts, after all. Then, when he’s scanning and erasing memories, he generates, well, let’s call it a ‘mind bubble.’ A subtle pressure of memories spread into a wide area—a pressure valve relief sorta thing. Kicks off déjà vu for anyone in a certain radius. But no one’s really hurt, no alarms sound, and Peter’s not getting crushed because he’s carrying the weight of everything.”

A chorus of “Oh … that’s good” flows around the room. Except for the original guy, who mutters, “I still like my idea better.”

Who hasn’t enjoyed those thought experiments as we’ve all put our imaginations to work in great debates to answer the questions that come out of reading the best comics? Well, that’s exactly what Valiant Universe: The Roleplaying Game lets you do.

This is your chance to step in, suit up, and answer those questions for yourself! How would you do it?

This comic provides another great example of how to roleplaying with your friends in the Valiant Universe.

Format

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.
