Generic Super Hero Encounter and Event Tables

Create Pulp-Noir plots that will keep your players on their "A" game!


Add exciting content to your pulp hero and pulp-noir Campaign.

How many times does the local bank get robbed in your super hero game--Too many? Are you starting to run a little thin on responses to what characters see while on patrol?

16 pages of tables and event hooks offer thousands of possibilities for your game. Add your personal touch and the possibilities become endless. Our tables are designed to give quick and exciting possibilities to any super hero campaign while preserving an appropriate comic book feel.

  • All you need 2d6
  • Terms are kept generic with an appropriate pulp novel feel
  • Includes 36 story plot twist/theme builder categories that created even broader possibilities by changing the slant by which a story is told. What if you are part of a manhunt and the fugitive on the run, turns out to be the hero's best friend, or better yet the heroes are the subject of mistaken identity and they are on the run?
  • Optional rules for using these tables to create an original three-act adventure, complete with unique flavor and inside player knowledge (callled Alley Apples)

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.
