This issue of Pyramid, the PDF magazine for roleplayers, is called "Looks Like a Job for . . . Superheroes." Devoted to supers campaigns and four-color fun, it includes:

  • An extensive alternate history of the Russian supers program, from before the fall of the tsar to the death of Khrushchev. Learn why Soviet heroes are so secretive, so skittish, and sometimes seemingly insane!
  • Information about powerful villains who use their incredible abilities to conquer less-than-incredible regions, plus three ready-to-use GURPS bad guys for mid- to high-power campaigns!
  • A group of low- to mid-power GURPS criminals – the Player Kings – who rely on their theatrical-style powers to commit outlandish crimes. Written by Stephen Dedman, the author of GURPS Dinosaurs!
  • Discussions about what it means to be a reformed villain, about using powers as metaphors in a campaign, and more!

In addition, this issue offers the odds and ends that make a magazine fun, including humor, Murphy's Rules with Greg Hyland, reviews and recommendations that fit the theme, and a "Last Word," where we ask an industry luminary to pick one word related to the issue's theme. This month, Steve Long of Champions fame gives the last word on superheroes.

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.
