Sentai Strike! is a dramatic revision of a pair of older sourcebooks: Sentai Spectacular (Otherverse Games, 2011) and Sentai Sequel (Otherverse Games, 2013). These older sourcebooks explored Sentai adventurers through the lens of a D20 Modern Basic Class with multiple talent trees to choose from. In the interest of making this sourcebook fully compatible with the Pathfinder Role Playing Game, the Sentai Hero Basic Class is gone.

The classes’ iconic powers and abilities become new traits, feats and character options, available to any class. One feat slot (well within the capabilities of a starting hero) gives you the ability to transform into a stylish, spandex-clad super-ninja. Some options synergize better with existing Pathfinder Roleplaying Game elements than with others (meaning that a Blue Sentai Hero is more likely to be an Alchemist than a Barbarian), but there’s plenty of room to mix and match, or to play against type.

Sentai Strike! follows the format and design decisions in my recent mega-sourcebook, High Tech Heroes.  You can think of Sentai Strike! as a ‘lost chapter’ in High Tech Heroes, offering a deep look at a specific flavor of modern adventure, in the same way that other chapters in that book explore the Lifechain, the grungy politics of Heavy Future or the inner workings of the elite military unit codenamed APEX.

Beyond character options, a variety of Sentai monsters, including a bunch of unique Sentai “boss monsters” provides a challenge for heroes at every level of your campaign. Random chance and procedural design charts let you build an infinite array of truly odd minions and master-villains, fully embracing the wild creativity shown by classic Sentai monster makers and artists.

Finally, we stop in for a long visit to Seraphim Cove. This coastal California town is a nice place to live: except for a small Kaiju problem. Can your game group protect this adventure-friendly small town from the giant monsters that seek its destruction? Seraphim Cove is the second fictional city described for the revised Psi-Watch Campaign Setting. Because it is steeped in Sentai tropes, Seraphim Cove feels and plays a lot differently than Cat’s Cradle. Seraphim Cove looks like a slightly boring slice of Americana, but everyone in town has a Sentai-related secret or two.

What is Sentai?

Sentai is one of the most popular genres in Japanese popular fiction, and this frenetic flavor of sci-fi action-adventure first came to America as the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers franchise during the early 1990s. There’s been at least one new Sentai series on Japanese television each and every year since the late 70s, and thanks to the success of the Power Rangers, similar shows have been a staple of American kid’s television for two decades now.

Sentai adventures emphasize teamwork: an elite squad of 5-6 colorful, spandex-clad superheroes use phenomenal gadgets, martial arts talent and equally colorful giant robots to battle alien monsters the size of small office buildings. As a genre, Sentai is predicable and formulaic to a fault: each episode follows a similar pattern. The Sentai team investigates some crisis, fights some low level adversaries until the episode’s real villain reveals itself. After battling the episode’s mastermind to a standstill, the villain grows to enormous size thanks to vile magic or alien technology, and to finally destroy the villain, the heroes must do the same, activating their own mecha or tapping into size changing circuitry built into their costume.

Format

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.
