GURPS Classic: Supers: Supertemps


Who Ya Gonna Call NOW?

When a pipe breaks, you call a plumber. When your roof leaks, you call a roofer. When your car breaks down, you get a mechanic. But what do you do when a gigantic lizard is destroying your high-rise in downtown New York?

Simple. Call Supertemps, the world's only metahuman employment agency!

In this book you'll find:

  • Detailed descriptions of 29 new supers-for-hire, with powers running from the meek and mundane to the mystical and magical. Each comes with a fully-described character background, personality, philosophy and goals! Point totals range from 500 up, with details on raising or lowering the point value of some of the important heroes.
  • The complete background history of Supertemps – the company's goals, organization and hiring practices.
  • Adventure seeds and advice on how to involve players in a Supertemps campaign, including information on how PCs can become employees of the company.
  • A Supertemps employment application.
  • And much, much more . . .

(This is a digital reprint of a GURPS Third Edition product.)

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.
