They didn't call it the "Golden Age" of superheroes for nothing: the 1930s and '40s gave us the most famous and enduring icons of the comics as well as the greatest battle between good and evil in the 20th century. With Golden Age, you can take your Mutants & Masterminds games back to that bygone era: play the world's very first heroes, defenders of freedom and democracy in a world on fire, engulfed in war. Golden Age presents a complete history of the Golden Age of comic books, and then shows you how to re-create those exciting tales with the World's Greatest Superhero RPG. It has an overview of the Golden Age era, guidelines for building Golden Age heroes (along with ready-made hero archetypes), and all the information you need to set up and run your own Golden Age series. It also includes a complete look at the Golden Age era of the four-color Freedom City campaign setting. Thrill to the adventures of the Liberty League and the Allies of Freedom, battle the Nazi Ãœbermensch and Hitler's super-soldiers, along with the sinister plots of the Invisible Empire and the occult Thule Society. Fight on the front lines or protect the home front and, keep 'em flyin', hero!

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.
