Designing Comic Book Scenarios

Watermarked PDF

Designing Comic book Scenarios aids the Referee in creating an adventure. Inside find mission and encounter generation, Digressions tables for when groups get split involuntarily, and an assortment of Quick & Dirty tables to flesh out most situations. This is a grand worth of ideas. Complete rules as published at LA conventions in 1991. Have fun. Thanks to everyone who still loves and remembers Better Games fondly. I hope new referees and players will equally enjoy this bit of nostalgia, yet way ahead in innovation. Style Three, Ideas Five. Maybe Style Two cause some of the schematic pages went wonky.

This one is much sought after and crazy hard to find. It is designed to work with the rules "Good Guys Finish Last" and "Villains Finish First" (what else). But, in truth it works for any comic book RPG.

This was part of the collected package "Avengers of Justice".

Click on the example and look at the text. Discussion of Mechanics is light. With a deck of regular playing cards, a detail mission can be developed.

Throw in a few super powered dudes with bad attitudes and you are off and running (flying?)

This is a great tool for generating detailed missions and encounters for any super powered RPG.

Scanned image
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.
