Superlatives Core Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

From the pages of comic books and the screens of our  televisions super heroes leap out into our collective  consciousness. These men and women possess remarkable  capabilities and dwell in amazing worlds where you never  know if a radioactive meteor shall fall from the sky,  mole men erupt from the ground, demons invade from  other dimensions, or giant crabs stalk in from the sea.  Over the decades these characters have met, fought,  befriended and fought again, to form vast webs  of frequently retconned stories spun over  fantastical but ever familiar worlds.   

Superlatives lets you adventure in such a comic book world, spinning your characters’ own tales and powers through Superlatives' unique system of continuous character creation. 

This core rulebook includes the complete rules of Superlatives alongside a rogues gallery of heroes, villains and supporting cast to help and hinder your heroes.

Just wanted to comment on Superlatives....Awesome work! Attention to detail and your take on 'supers' is unique and entertaining. Still working around the Powers section and was wondering if you had a list/description of powers used in playtesting. Or did I miss that in this book?

Again, great job.

The game has no canonical list of powers; since players are able to define their own. There is however the index of powers mentioned in the rules and bestiary: beginning page 429.

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.
