The Ultimate Speedster - PDF

ZIP File



Every character has to walk, run, swim, or fly at some point. But some characters specialize in movement - they're incredibly fast, able to run at hypervelocity and do things in the blink of an eye that take other characters hours, or they can move in ways other characters in the campaign can't. The Ultimate Speedster is your guide to creating and playing movement-based characters and powers in the HERO System. It includes:

- a discussion of the various types of speedsters and how to create them using the HERO System rules

- a review of Movement Powers such as Running, Teleportation, Flight, and Swimming, with advanced and expanded rules for each

- a Speedster Powers chapter with over 300 pre-built speedster abilities, most with options so you can easily customize them to suit the character you have in mind

- a genre-by-genre review of speedsters with sample character for each type of campaign

- the HERO System Movement Companion, a detailed look at how movement works in the HERO System and how you can alter those rules to change or improve you game (including rules for Segmented Movement and Uncontrolled Movement)

- Adventures At Top Speed, a section on campaigning with and GMing for speedsters, including detailed rules for the Speed Zone - the "world" speedster enter when they're moving so quickly other characters seem to be standing still

Shift your game into high gear with The Ultimate Speedster!

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.
