The Superverse is a superhero campaign sourcebook meant to evoke a Bronze Age feel in a modern-day setting. This version supports Supergame Third Edition, a rules-lite superhero tabletop RPG published by Precis Intermedia. Versions also exist for ICONS AssembledChampions Sixth EditionBASH! Ultimate Edition, and SUPERS! Revised Edition.

Each system-specific sourcebook includes the following: 

  • Stats and origins for The Freedom Ring and The Iron Gauntlet. These are the 5 superheroes and 7 supervillains originally appearing in The Freedom Ring and The Iron Gauntlet, which were character books for the first edition of SUPERS! back in 2012. 
  • New Characters and Organizations. These include a government-sponsored superhero team (Vanguard America), five super-powered mobsters, three agencies (AEGIS, CHIMERA, UNICORN), 10+ supporting characters (these are non-powered citizens of Del Rey), and a few others. 
  • Four interlinked adventures designed to introduce all of the above characters into your games while keeping your player characters at the forefront of the action. Thoroughly rooted in the setting, these adventures provide many options for role-playing, investigation, and combat. 
  • A Timeline of the Superverse. This timeline is compiled from all of the character origins and adventure backgrounds included in the book. It should make it easier for GMs and players to get a sense of the setting’s backstory and fit their own characters into the universe. 
  • The City of Del Rey. Del Rey is the fictionalized version of San Francisco where the aforementioned adventures are set. We’ve tried to provide enough flavor text to give the city some personality, but have shied away from creating an overly-determined setting. The chapter on Del Rey provides details on organizations, institutions, people, and places, but only those that might make an appearance during the sourcebook’s adventures. Our hope is that this approach will “leave enough blanks” for you to make the city your own. 
  • Campaign Design Advice. This short section provides advice on how to make sure that player characters remain at the center of the narrative when running through a published universe. 
  • Optional Rules (SUPERS! Revised only!). This includes a new option for Super Strength, minor tweaks to the Mook rules, and suggested changes for one or two Complications. 
  • As much art as we can pack into the book! This includes art from the late (and definitely great) Joe Singleton, Ade Smith, Dan Houser, “Thetimmy,” Ayanna Regalado, and Athena Regalado. 
  • Maps. These include maps for the following locations: The City of Del Rey, Stellar Labs, the Argyle Museum, ACME Iron Works, Black Rock Prison, the Del Rey County Jail, The Bayshore Shopping Center, Fort Wayne (military base), and a desert landing site. All of these are keyed to encounters in the sourcebook’s adventures.

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.
