A variety of are presented in order to do this - you can use the Hero class alongside regular d20 core classes, you can build and use templates or you can simply buy superpowers with experience points. The choice is yours! This isn't OUR superhero game - it's YOUR superhero game!

Four-Color To Fantasy was one of the first 3.0 superhero add-ons that came out, and to some degree it shows. There are some clunky bits in here, and some things that don't really add up, but there are a lot of grand ideas that make it worth a gamer's [...]

Very interesting, this is. With a few tweaks, this can become a flexible system that can be used IN PLACE of the book standard core classes. But then, I like mixing things up. :p [...]

I really like the flexibility of this system, and think that running a fantasy campaign that allows taking levels in the hero class would be full of Anime-like adventure. [...]

A very well-designed super hero system. It also works as a good way to create races (much better than the silly Savage Species). I have used it most recently as a unique way to handle psionics in a D&D game (as opposed to the usual psionics [...]

Not too bad, but it seems that instead of innovating d20 to work with super-heroes, it tried to shoehorn super-heroes into a restrictive class system. The artwork is less interesting than some other equivalent products out there. [...]

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.
