I am in need of some more FAQ's for the book, so if you have questions, please ask so I might clarify them in the soon-to-be-coming updated book! Many thanks!

like it but I believe there is some stuff to be revised, like the fighting for instance if I only purchase right hook at character creation, well right hook is the only thing I can do, which is unreal, maybe I could do it with more difficult or something like that but just being able to throw right hooks here and there it limits a lot the flow of the game, also if I purchase nuclear radiation what stops me from killing an entire city... nothing, which makes it hard for the storyteller to control. Also it doesn't matter what one has in mind for the character background once you are an Aethyr all that idea is gone. Also the layout is pretty simple, just a block of text and from time to time a drawing of a character, there are cheaper offers here that has more effort on it. Any ways it is a great idea and the aliens are amazing so yeah, can't wait for next edition.

First off, if you begin with a Fighting Style, you get three Attack Options, not one. So you don't get stuck with a basic "right hook".
The Control Radiation power is incredibly dangerous for the reasons you state. There is a "villain" in the book that has the power and dealing with her in playtests was very difficult.
Backgrounds do indeed inform a character - some people play the game and don't want to be a "hero" or "villain", and just try to live a normal life. This of course is complicated due to the very nature of the game, but what fun can come of it!
Finally, a new copy will "soon" be made available to those who have purchased it, and it comes with fully fleshed out NPCs instead of the simple stat blocks presented. I am constantly making updates to the game and look forward to making it available to everyone! Also, the price has significantly decreased!

Nice, thou I gota say that still 3 combat moves is way to limitant, I mean i real life we can do whatever we want but in the game just 3 things...

There is a newer rule in the book that combats this: you may attempt any attack option, but it has no Class Hit Modifier and it only deals d4 damage. The Attack Options were always intended to be "mastered" attacks.

Also, a revision filled Physical Copy will be made available "soon".

Amazing game that allows and rewards creative out-of-the-box thinking mechanically, and also provides an interesting plotline for the players to interact with.
a must-buy for anyone who enjoys super-powered beings and cosmic horror.

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.
