Dial S for Superhumans is a free supplement containing 30 illustrated superhuman characters for your Truth & Justice -- or any superhero -- campaign! (36 pages; ~2MB)

In early June 2005, Atomic Sock Monkey Press held a contest, seeking Truth & Justice characters for a free supplement. Dial S for Superhumans is composed of those contest entries.

Contestants could enter either original art or a character write-up for a specific provided piece of art (aka "Contest Dude"). Extra consideration was given to entries that provided supplementary material or met other requirements. With the kind permission of AFD Studios, Inc., illustrations created with their HeroMachine customized character portrait generator were eligible for submission. Winners of the contest would receive contributor credit on this book and a free copy of Truth & Justice upon publication.

Initially, only sixteen entries were intended to appear in Dial S for Superhumans. . . However, as the submissions continued to roll in, the editor made the decision that they were all exciting enough to include!

Despite nearly character sporting an "eye" on their chest, I found this collection of unique and interesting characters to be wonderfully supportive of the actual TRUTH & JUSTICE rpg. These characters touch on very different takes of supe [...]

Very good collection of superheros and an eclectic mix of powers. Most powers you will know, a few are unique. Descriptions are detailed enough you can use them in any system yet open enough for intepretation. [...]

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.
