Wearing the Cape: Operation Pole Star

Watermarked PDF

"Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Clause. He exists as certainly as love and devotion and generosity, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! How dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Clause! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias."

The New York Sun, 1897.

Before the Event, and for more than a decade after, the famous answer to young Virginia O'Hanlon's question was a metaphorical truth. Not anymore.

Santa Clause has come to town. Every town. And in the wake of his first world-spanning ride, governments and researchers are scrambling to find out what it means. Is he a new Omega Class breakthrough? If he is, what are the limits of his potential? And can that potential be missused? The heroes will soon find themselves involved in what may well be a quest to save Christmas.

Wearing the Cape: Operation Pole Star is a 12-page Christmas adventure by Marion G. Harmon, writer of the Wearing the Cape series and RPG. It is written for Wearing the Cape: The Roleplaying Game, but is compatible with Fate Core and most other Fate-system offerings with a little tinkering.

Because supervillains don't just rob banks anymore.

Quick nitpick: “Santa Claus” is the guy who brings gifts to children around the world every year; “Santa Clause” is a Tim Allen movie.

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.
