APEX: An Otherverse America Sourcebook


While the Otherverse America core rulebook details life within the Choicer and Lifer pseudo-nations, this sourcebook details life within
neutral-territory America, and focuses heavily on the 22nd Century's premier military: APEX.

APEX is America's most elite metahuman strike force, which operates independently of the Choicer pseudo-nation, and is based in the Washington
D.C. Metroplex. APEX was founded during the 2020s, so the United States military would have access to a post-human army equal to anything
fielded by other nations, terror groups and independent operators like RAINBOW Liberty. APEX is a check on the ever growing numbers of metahuman
vigilantes, non-governmental organizations, terror cells and private security teams.

APEX troops are among the best trained and best equipped in the Americas, drilled extensively in urban tactics, counter-terrorism, and anti-
Powered warfare. In addition to exemplary training, APEX troops are enhanced with military grade genemods, combat focused object philosophy
indoctrination and the best cyber-enhancement protocol money can buy. A single veteran APEX super soldier is designed to be a match for a full
enemy light platoon, despite the huge costs involved in training and molding a soldier to that level.

Included in this massive sourcebook are a host of new player races. In the Otherverse America setting civilian genetic engineering is as common
as tattooing, and each citizen of 22nd Century America is a species of one, custom designed to survive the rigors of a war-torn, segregated future.

New human races have emerged.

The world's megacorps and America's military elite began using in-vitro gene-cutting to custom build workers and combat troops as early as
the 2030s. The same ‘genetic revolution' that gave the world the AIDS cure, the first generation of engineered Powereds and laid the cornerstone
of the Covenant pseudo-nation also gave birth to a new breed of slavery. A series of Supreme Court decisions during the 2050s freed many of the
‘engineered' races, and forced an already overstressed America to come to terms with the myriad new sentient species now living among them.

Along with new races, there are a host of new feats, advanced classes, starting classes and detailed campaign setting material that breathes life into the Otherverse America Setting.  Included with your purchase is the full color PDF as well as a text-only printer friendly version.

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.
