Action Features

Watermarked PDF

Action Features is a multipurpose sourcebook. Like The Cosmic Toybox, this book is a homage to the cartoons I spent my childhood watching. Action Features is a collection of variant racial traits, starting traits and feats designed to give your heroes some of the iconic, gimmick-oriented superpowers shared by cartoon heroes of the 1980s. Inside you’ll find heroic options for flight, super strength, built-in bionic gadgets, fabulous animal sidekicks, super-elasticity and more.

Many of these traits and feats were originally presented as D20 Modern talent trees for 2012’s Powered Hero Evolution. They’ve been re-mixed and rebalanced, added to all new content designed to allow for some interesting character building options. Much of this content is usable (and designed) for The Psi-Watch Campaign Setting, but is also just as useful for adventurers in any of Otherverse Games’ signature campaign worlds. Many of the powers in this sourcebook build on earlier options presented in Battlechangers: Ironworks and Fursona Unleashed, offering cool new abilities to some of my favorite gaming races.

The focus of this sourcebook is interesting, visually obvious and distinctive superpowers. Not every talent from Powered Hero Evolution made the cut. Abilities that step on the distinct gameplay niches developed by the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, or infringe on the psychic powers described in Ultimate Psionics (Dreamscarred Press, 2013) were left on the cutting room floor. The resulting powers are as useful to a Rogue as a Wizard, as effective in an Oracle’s hands as a Fighter’s, as good a choice for a Summoner or a Mindblade, as long as the campaign world looks more like Eternia than Middle Earth.

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.
